“You know those people who get so much done it seems like they have 30 hours in every day while the rest of us mere mortals have a measly 24? You know, the ones who seem to get more accomplished before breakfast than you do all day?
“Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.” – DH Lawrence
We all want to be successful, but most of us don’t know how to get there. What makes successful people stand out from the crowd? Powerful communication is the number 1 secret of success! Do you speak the language of success?
Successful people use strong, confident language that helps to distinguish their talents and differences from others. Using this type of positive language can make a big difference in achieving your goals. Here is a handy tip from Rodger Hamilton on how to speak the language of success.
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.” ? Abraham Lincoln
After the rush and thrill of the Holiday season, this is a perfect opportunity for all of us to sit back, summarize the highs and lows of past year and proactively plan for the year ahead. As the number of days is dwindling for 2012, we have to focus on important areas of our life.

“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.” – Louis Sachar
Everyone wants to be successful but not everyone can step on the pedestal of success. This is true when it comes to debt collecting. Any individual or small business owner can attest to the fact that there is no shortcut to debt recovery. You can’t expect to do something magical overnight and have all debts erased the next day. You have to work hard and have to go through several rejections and disappointments just to see that glimmer of achievement you are aiming for. It is important to never give up because when you do, no matter what your goal is, may it be a quick cash flow increase, proper recovery from debt or making your business prosper, you will never see the fruits of your labor.
May this beautiful story of the Bamboo Tree inspire you to never let go, especially during times of disappointments. Hang in there! Remember that your success can only happen when you put a lot of effort and determination every step of the way for a continuous period.
“Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent” – Marilyn vos Savant

I find this video inspirational – it can refresh our spirit and boost the emotional bank account. Enjoy it!

‘Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don’t look back at it too long. Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you.

Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.’ – Og Mandino
For many business owners, making a debt collection call is one of the hardest things to do.
Certainly, there is a good reason for this kind of hesitation. Making debt collection calls is an art. You need to be alert all the time, anticipate what the customer is going to say and at the same time be ready for anything. You have to stay in control of the phone call, and the same time you have to be gentle enough to lead the client to the resolution stage. Making collection calls has clearly some advantages over other collecting methods. Continue reading →
‘As I go through all kinds of feelings and experiences in my journey through life — delight, surprise, chagrin, dismay — I hold this question as a guiding light: “What do I really need right now to be happy?” What I come to over and over again is that only qualities as vast and deep as love, connection and kindness will really make me happy in any sort of enduring way.’ Salzberg
‘If you’re a debt collector, it’s like getting struck by lightning every now and then. You’re having a great day and then BLAM! Your debtor who you chase for payment starts being really unpleasant and yelling at you over the phone. Something is terribly wrong and you are in the hot seat.
