Program yourself for success (If you don’t have anything nice to say to yourself about yourself, don’t say anything at all.)
Your mission statement is always written in the present tense, as though you have already become the person that you have described. It is always positive rather than negative. And it is always personal.
Program Yourself Correctly
Your subconscious mind can only accept your mission statement as a set of commands when you phrase it in the present, positive and personal tenses. “I am an exceptional salesperson,” is a perfect example. After every sales call, you should quickly reread your mission statement and ask yourself if your recent behavior was more like the person you want to be, or less? As a top sales performer, you are always comparing your sales activities against a high standard and adjusting your activities upward. You’re continually striving to be better. Every day in every way, you are deliberately working to become more like the ideal person you have envisioned.

DO NOT give out ANY credit card information over the phone!
Just a “heads up” regarding the latest in Visa fraud. Royal Bank received this communication about the newest scam (quite a few phone scams originate from Canada) This is happening in southern Alberta right now and moving.
This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want….
Note, the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it.
This information is worth reading. One of our employees was called on Wednesday from “VISA”, and I was called on Thursday from “MasterCard”. By understanding how the VISA & MasterCard telephone Credit Card Scam works, you’ll be better prepared to protect yourself.
The scam works like this:
The FCC argued that Comcast, and other internet providers, could weight bandwidth for or against certain type of content, services and traffic. In effect giving those corporate entities control over what end-users could do online.
“The case centers on Comcast’s actions in 2007 when it interfered with an online file-sharing service called BitTorrent, which allows users to swap big files such as movies over the Internet. But public interest groups stressed that the ramifications of Tuesday’s ruling are much broader. That’s because it undercuts the FCC’s ability to prevent broadband providers from becoming gatekeepers for many kinds of online services, potentially including Internet phone programs and software that runs in a Web browser.”
And we thought we had to worry about the Government. In the 1976 movie “Network“, written by Paddy Chayevsky; Howard Beale, portrayed by Peter Finch, passionately points out that corporations run everything and that governments are an old-fashion notion, a comforting illusion.
