Gitomer Does it Again with "Cha-Ching"

Little Platinum Book of Cha-Ching: 32.5 Strategies to Ring Your Own (cash) Register in Business and Personal Success

One of my all time favourite "down to earth - tell it like it is" authors is Jeffrey Gitomer. His latest blockbuster best seller is Little Platinum Book of Cha-Ching: 32.5 Strategies to Ring Your Own (cash) Register in Business and Personal Success .

In one particular excerpt Gitomer talks about building a family of Great people: " I do not consider my eagles a "team" - I prefer to call them "my family." I feel like if I treat everyone like I treat members of my family ( and I do have family - my brother and daughters - working there as well ), that they will feel at home at work. Family is a closer knit group than team.

I reward people for making mistakes. One hundred bucks if you screw up big. People are floored when they get it, but besides crying and feeling like dirt, they learn the lesson, and are given the money for the courage to have risked and failed. No one wants to make a mistake. And when they do, I want to make certain they feel bad, AND good. It works."

What unusual wisdom is that... you will enjoy reading Little Platinum Book of Cha-Ching: 32.5 Strategies to Ring Your Own (cash) Register in Business and Personal Success

Qantas Runs Late



Flight QF699 Melbourne to Adelaide ran an hour late last night... two little wires can loose on the 737... and you know, it didn't to matter becuase the pilot kept us informed on what was going on. Isn't that all we want... to be treated as if we are important.

On arriving in Adelaide we had to wait to get off the plane... someone forgot to crankout the airbridge... and all that good will went down the drain!!

Rydges Swanston Street.. ugh!

How do taxi drivers get their licences?!?

Arriving in Melbourne on Tuesday evening from Brisbane on The Making The Secret Work for You I was looking for a quick trip into the Rydges Hotel in Swanston Street. After loading my own luggage into the boot of one of Melbourne's infamous Yellow Cabs, I asked the your immigrant taxi driver to take me to: Rydges Swanston Street.

After looking at me a couple of times, because he couldn't understand my English, he gets out his Street Directory, and starts looking it up. What he was looking up I don't know if he didn't understand me I don't know but after 5 minutes he admits defeat and asks me "Do you mean Exhibition Street or Bridge Street.." I asked him to check with his base but he refused so I exited the taxi.

The next taxi driver said "I have been driving for 12 years and there is NO RYDGES in Swanston Street."

The third driver said in his clipped Indian accent: "I am a student and that's just near where I go to Uni..."

I reckon the people who let these people drive the taxis need a catch one every now and again.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment

According to a New York Daily News article, the producers of a reality surgery-and-self-esteem show on ABC TV called Extreme Makeover are now being sued in L.A. Superior Court for literally ruining a woman's life — by rejecting her at the last minute after promising her a life- enhancing whole-body transformation.

How did simply leaving the woman with the face and body she was born with ruin her life? Well the television programmers had already taped the harsh, no-holds-barred comments her entire family and group of friends said about her natural looks —as the poor woman watched from behind one-way glass in the next room!

Of course, this was all part of the show: The people that know her say mean but true things about the way she looks while they tape her crying her eyes out and feeling sorry for herself. Then they transform her into a goddess over a 6-week period (or however long a TV half-season is) through surgery, diet, exercise, and a makeover, and everybody loves her because she's beautiful. And happily ever after, roll credits…

But here's where Extreme Makeover's producers went extremely wrong:

After making her watch everyone who's supposed to love her for HER say the cruelest, most vicious things about the way she looks behind her back did they find out from the dental surgeon assigned to fix her deformed jaw and crooked teeth that the work would not heal in time for the grand finale episode — in which all the makeover candidates get unveiled to the oohs and aahs of both loved ones and the prime-time studio audience.

So they nixed her from the show and sent her packing back to Texas, just the way she was. And that's when all hell broke loose.

I am who I think I am

Phil Evans writes great stuff in his newsletter, PeoplesStuff.. I particularly lke this piece called "I am who I think I am"

There is another important principle involved in this process: "I am who I think I am"!

Here are some suggestions which should allow you to start gathering some new evidence, or simply start to turn your life around if you're feeling stuck somehow:

Life is easy - and is getting easier every day!
I am always in the right place at the right time!
Everything I touch turns to gold .... and that feels good!
I am surrounded by supportive and loving friends and family!
I am attracting perfect health, wealth, and lifestyle balance into my life every day!
I am constantly creating the perfect surroundings in which I grow and prosper!
I am loved and respected by all who meet me; because I love and respect myself!
Everything begins within a thought, follows with a feeling, and turns into reality!
Every cell in my body is full of peace, love and harmony; which extends into my life!

Remember: Focus on them; say them to yourself as often as possible; start to live them; and they will become so much a part of your life, that they will allow you to start developing new daily habits. In fact, they will lead to developing completely new feelings, and ultimately those new experiences which may have been eluding you for some time!

We are out there gathering evidence every day that our beliefs are right; so, for your own sake, be aware of which type of evidence you are gathering each day! If it's not good - you can change it!

Cheap Brochure Printing

If you don't like to advertise blatantly, you can always trust your loyal customers to help you on that area, for free; specially if they really liked the service that you constantly provide for them. Advertising will always open a new way for you to acquire new customers.

Are you Fast Failing?

That term, fast failing, it has a sort of counterintuitive feel to it. If your failing, why would you want to do it quickly. Then again, that's why new terms and concepts catch on, it is how a new meme makes the rounds.

The term fast fail seems to have worked it's way into management and innovation circles via a circuitous path starting in computing. By making components fail-fast, the overall system becomes more fault tolerant.

In innovation the idea is to follow your nose towards the new users, or those on the bleeding edge, who always like to try new things.

These ideas come from Malcolm Galdwell's book BLINK!

"From what I understand, two guys were out fishing on Friday night," reported Massillon (Ohio) Police Sgt. J.J. DiLoreto.

But instead of catching a fish, they caught a snapping turtle. "I think they were planning to eat it," he said, so the fishermen decided to shoot the turtle.


But "his foot got in the way," DiLoreto said. "He shot himself in the foot" with a 9mm pistol. The unnamed victim may face a misdemeanor charge of illegal firearms discharge. And in all the resulting confusion, "I think the turtle got away." ...The "big one" always does.

Legal Help Regarding PPHN

Looking at the pictures & reading the stories about the babies on the PPHNlawyers.com website is a sad experience. The babies experience breathing difficulties because they have a disease called Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn or better known as PPHN. It certainly looks like a harrowing experience for the innocent babies as they often require intubation and mechanical ventilation in order to live.

There is reason to believe that the condition is induced by the mothers consuming certain SSRI-antidepressants like Paxil, Lexapro, Prozac, & etc during the pregnancies. Additionally the FDA issued a public health warning about it on July 19, 2006. There is more information about it at PPHNlawyers.com.

Vincent Wright's Wisdom

Vincent Wright runs many dozens of internet forums and they are great place for Vincent to share his wiodm. This gem first was first published on Vincent's http://www.mylinkedinpowerforum.com/

"Have you ever had someone make a very, very good point - one which you could see yourself agreeing with - but you find yourself not receptive to the idea because of the way it's presented to you?

I know that the above is a complex sentence but, the essence of it is this: Say you go to a restaurant and you are given a good looking meal. You get all set to enjoy the meal but you notice that the plate is not clean or that the utensils are dirty - (likely from food left over from an earlier meal). What happens to your attitude towards the meal? ABSOLUTELY! You temporarily lose your appetite and reject the meal, right? (At least I hope you reject it! :-))

I think this good food/dirty plate metaphor is an apt one for some of the negative conversation we sometimes experience in our discussion groups: Someone presents something that makes good logical sense but we reject it because of the way it is presented. The presenter didn't take time to "clean the plate" on which they are serving their great idea.

Like food left over from a previous meal, we can sometimes forget to clean our arguments of residual attitudes left over from former arguments.

And since good meals often end with dessert, I love the idea that the etymology of the word "persuade" suggests that it literally means "through sweetness".

So, if you have something meaty you want us to consider, persuade us by serving us your food for thought in a "sweet manner" - and please use a "clean plate"! :-)"

A new term that we have come to know is “ecotourism” This is where tourism and nature are mutually exclusive to sustain the local culture while providing tourism to grow and flourish. Since the tourism brings in over $3 Billion dollars to the Maui alone it is imperative that there be eco-friendly places to rent that is economically sound and culturally based.

How are you today?


Ric Isaac is gaining a reputation as being a great fitness and diet coach. In his latest neswletter Ric recounts some ff his own motivtion:

"How are you today?"

Whenever I ask people this question I always get a mixed bag of answers.

Some just say "fine", others say "could be worse" or my pet hate "not too bad".

Now, don't get me wrong I am not having a go at these people, I just wish they realised how much power these words have. Even if you are in a terrible mood just by saying "I am so happy to be alive" can change the way you feel instantly.

We all know the saying about your glass being ‘half empty' or ‘half full' and it really is up to you to make a choice.

I am reading, for the 5th time, the incredible book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. If you have not read this book then I highly recommend it, not just for your health, for your relationships, your business/work lives and your self-esteem. I know it has had a profound effect on my life and will continue to influence how I live and the choices I make.

Forgive them Anyway!

In my friend Brian Leaning Mizens great newsletter he talks about material found on Mother Theresa's Convent:

People are often unreasonable, illogical,
and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight.
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Sent to me from my good friend in India.

Payday loans at Cashadvance1500.com

Pay day loans are small and short term loans which do not require any credit checks of the consumer.

Think of a situation when you need to make an emergency payment to a hospital and you are short of money in your account. Or say it’s the last date to pay your school/college fees and you are bankrupted for the month because of few other urgent expenses. In such situations if you are asked to go through a long process of checking your credits, bank balance etc just to get a small amount of cash advance then there is nothing more irritating than that.

Yes, friends are always the first one’s to approach in such situations but even for them it’s not always possible to arrange things within a day!

In such situations pay day loans comes to our rescue.

Cashadvance1500.com is one of the companies that provide cash advance loans.

This company only requires that you are a employed major and you receive at least a monthly payment of $1000 per month. However when you are applying for the loan or when they are providing you with cash advance, no balance is required in your account.

As per the site, you will need to fill up a free online application and within few hours only a representative would call to confirm your details. And within a day you cash is credited into your account. Check the sites FAQ section for more details.

What I Learned From Seth Godin

Don't you just love it when you read someone's blog and their thoughts mirror yours??

I have just done that with the following comments on the blog of Arizona High Tech Talent Partnership http://www.azhttp.com in article about the wisdom of Seth Godin http://www.azhttp.com/2007/09/03/what-i-learned-from-seth-godin/

Here you go:

Seth’s message was about the positive feelings that can be generated by caring people practicing excellent customer care.

On page 114 of “Small is the New Big” is this pearl of wisdom

Some relevant selections from Seth’s article include:

“These people were actually trying. Because they wanted to, not because they had to.”
- Seth Godin

“There is no perfect experience. But this was great storytelling, storytelling with authenticity from caring people. It restored my faith (at least a little) in what organizations can do.”
- Seth Godin

To make people feel like they are valued and appreciated take small simple changes but it usually does take change. Make an effort to cheer up one person or make them feel special today and see how much better that makes you feel.
- Bill Austin

Thanks guys... I feel much better now!

Online dating 'good for romance'


In what appears to be ground breaking research, it has been found that dating websites can give people a "surprisingly high" chance of long-term romance.

This data was collected and published in the UK around St Valentine's Day 2007.
Apparantly some 94% of UK online agency customers questioned saw their "e-partner" again after the first face-to-face meeting.

In surprising finding, only 4% of online daters were already married. This would seem to be less than the chance of finding a married person looking fr company at club.

Although most sites didn't display much information about their members a
bond formed between customers when later they started communicating, particularly online chatrooms.

This was a more "immediate" way of communicating than e-mail and allowed people to express their true feelings.

One of the webs most popular dating sites is the FREE on line dating site http://www.justsayhi.com/

At this site there are already thousands of fun, attractive, men and women - according to the information given by the members themselves, many in your area who are looking to find their true love. justsayhi.com claim that their site is gimmick free, and genuine people who aren't into tricks can enjoy the free dating service.

So, stop paying for online dating now. Have a look at joining the justsahi free dating siteand then you can browse online personals from thousands of sexy singles who've discovered the benefits of free online dating and matchmaking.

Alexa Rankning Sours

Here are todays rankings for this blog:

Your focus becomes your reality.

This includes everything you are, everything that you have, and the way people treat you. Can you believe that all the Good and all the Bad which is in your life now is there because you are using the power of your mind to create it?

All those things that you Do and Don't want are there because you have subconsciously chosen them!!

But the moment you choose to stop accepting this way of life, to stop thinking about these negatives in your life; to stop giving power to them and to stop giving away control to what you don't want, this is the instant you start to move towards what you DO want.

It is that simple and now you know it, use it.

Just because you couldn't do it yesterday, doesn't mean you can't do it today.

Just because it didn't work last time, doesn't mean it won't work this time.

Just because you are scared, doesn't mean you don't have the courage to make it happen.

Just because you might have failed time and time again, doesn't mean success isn't just over the next hill.

Just because you don't know every step in advance that you must take, doesn't mean you can't get started towards your dreams, right now.

Just because you might feel alone right now, doesn't mean you won't find the help and the friends and the tools to make it happen.

Just because you feel like you'll never get it all figured out on your own, doesn't mean the answers won't come, when you are ready for the next step....

Just because.

Trust Source Is Your Expert


Have you ever wondered which products offered on the web actually work? Thanks to trustsource.org now you can find out by reading the reviews of people who have already tried them out.

Products like provillus, which acts against hair loss by aggressively seeding the scalp to allow for new hair growth. It also gives the scalp the correct nutrition to bring damaged hair follicles back to health. This product has received a five star rating by the people who have used it.

Another range of five star products are those designed to help relieve the unpleasant side effects of menopause, especially hot flashes that so many women find intolerable. These products, along with everything else at Trust Source, are tested by the company itself to ensure that they do what they claim. However, members of the public are then invited to give their opinion. As far as this range is concerned, it's five stars all the way.

Finally, let's consider the range of cellulite cream that Trust Source offers. Like all the products these are tested and then reviewed by consumers. Why go into a chemist's shop and try to choose between all the creams that are covering the shelves. How can you make an informed choice when they all offer to do the same thing?

Now, thanks to Trust Source, you can make an informed choice.

Marathon Monks of Japan

Marathon runners may think they have endurance, but they can't compete with members of the Tendai Buddhist sect who live on Mount Hiei in Japan.

As part of their spiritual training, the so-called "marathon monks" run or walk (in rope sandals) a distance that's sometimes double that of a marathon's 26.2 miles every day for seven years, often getting only four hours of sleep a night.

Only 48 monks have completed this optional quest (while still tending to their other duties), which requires them to commit suicide if they fail at any point along the way.

All Races IN Australia Off Saturday, 25 August 2007

Peter Morley from Belhus RAcing just sent me this note:

All races in Australia have been cancelled for 72 hours, throwing the racing and harness industry into chaos.

Chief of Stewards at RWWA John Zucal announced this morning that WA would fall into line with the national containment strategy and keep the movement of horses in this state to a stand still.

Today’s Belmont meeting and Sundays Coolgardie Cup meeting have been called off, with the Coolgardie Cup likely to be run next Sunday along with the Kambalda Cup.

Your Thoughts Make you Fat

This week I have been going great on the weight ( keeping it down ) program until this morning, when after seemingly starving myself yesterday ( entree portions at lunch, small portion for dinner ) I was 1 kilo heavier than yesterday... grrrrrh... don't you hate that.

According to health guru, Dr Alan Sears its all about how you think. Let him explain:

"Here’s how to do it:

Simply sit down with a note card the night before and plan what you’re going to eat the next day. Also decide (the best you can) where you will get your meals and your snacks. It adds a rational thought process to the decision of what to eat. And, it takes away the temptation to eat impulsively. It also helps me to avoid empty carbs.

Another great technique is creative visualization. Sit quietly for a moment and create a mental picture of you sitting at your dinner table. Visualize yourself eating high-protein, low-carb meals. Feel the sense of satisfaction that comes from eating those foods. Feel the pride and sense of achievement that comes from following your meal plan.

As you sit with that image, feel how easy it is to avoid the foods that make you fat. Empty carbs… Fried foods… You don’t miss them at all. Everything you need is on your meal plan.

This visualization really helps. By creating a picture of contentment and success, you “set your intent.” This helps turn your vision into reality. It also gives you a reference point to easily return to in case you get tempted.

When I was in India last year, the yogis talked about a similar technique: Focusing the mind on your goal. Seeing it with clarity… feeling like it already exists.

Try it. It’s easy and it works. For more details, on a successful weight loss coaching program including this technique and many more click HERE. A friend of mine has set it up for you."

The trick is in what one emphasizes

"The trick is in what one emphasizes.
We either make ourselves miserable,
or we make ourselves strong.
The amount of work is the same."


Carlos Castaneda,
20th century mystic and Toltec warrior

Carlos Castaneda was an anthropologist from UCLA who, during the course of his research, introduced the world to both the Mexican philosophy known as Toltec as well as his teacher, the Yaqui Indian shaman Don Juan.

Castaneda chronicled his experience with Don Juan through a series of books. The first, The Teachings of Don Juan: a Yaqui Way of Knowledge, was actually his masters thesis--which introduced the world to Don Juan and quickly became a best seller and started a fascination with the world of shamanism and the Toltec warrior.

Although the veracity of some of his experiences (including the actual existence of Don Juan!) is questioned, the profile of a warrior is no less meaningful. The lessons he shares are powerful and echo many of the truths revealed in other classic philosophies discussing the art of living.

Food Power


Talking about diet, as we are, I wanted to tell you that apples are more efficient than caffeine in keeping people awake in the mornings! And it is proven that smelling bananas and green apples (smelling, not eating) can help you lose weight! Of course you could exercise but did you realise that a hard working adult sweats up to 2 litres per day. Most of the sweat evaporates before a person realises it's there, though!

I think I will just think about all of this eating and exercising lark!

The Person Responsible

It’s time to meet the person who has been responsible for the life you live right now.

This person has created your income, your debt, your relationships, your health, your fitness level, your weight, your attitudes and your behaviors. Who is it? To introduce yourself, just walk to the closest mirror and say hello! This person is you!

Although one of the popular myths out there is that "external factors" determine how you live, the truth of the matter is that you are in complete control of the quality of your life.

It’s time to look at the life you’ve created and determine what is working and what is not. Certainly there are wonderful things happening in your life, whether it’s your job, your spouse, your grades, your children, your friends, or your income level.

Congratulate yourself on these successes; you are creating them for yourself! And then take a look at what isn’t working out so well. What are you doing or not doing to create those experiences?

It’s time to stop blaming outside factors for your unhappiness.

When you realize that you create your experiences, you’ll realize that you can un-create them and create new experiences whenever you want. But you must take responsibility for your happiness and your unhappiness, your successes and your failures, your good times and your bad times. When you stop blaming, you can take that energy and redirect to focus on creating a better situation for yourself. Blaming only ties up your energy.

Garage Floor Tile

There is one room in the house that many people seem to neglect and that is the garage. Normally the garage is also the messiest room in the home as well. This doesn’t have to be the case and with a bit of thought and the proper garage storage equipment you can turn it into another room in your house.

Carguygarage.com has thousands of products you can choose from but I reckon the one that will do me the most good is great looking garage floor tile. This would help me to organize my garage and free up heaps of room, so much so I don’t think I would recognise the place anymore. Good on you carguys.
