WINNING ATTITUDE

WINNING ATTITUDE

Most everybody wants to be successful and want to make a difference in the world. The Key! The greatest difference maker in your life is inside you…your attitude How I respond to difficulties and negative circumstances DETERMINES  what I will be able to accomplish in this life. 

Your attitude will either be your greatest ally or your greatest hindrance… The RightPortrait of smiling business people with thumbs up against white

Attitude John 16:33 AMP I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] Good Cheer – Overflowing, Exuberant Joy! 

Where do Attitudes Come From?
– Home
– Background
– Environment
– Experiences
– People: Greatest influence |Don’t let people control you.

Your attitude affects every area of your life…
– Expression on your face images (1)
– The things that you say
– Body language
– Work habits
– Personality
– The way you dress
– Health

Proverbs 23:7 As [a man] thinks in his heart so is he… Your attitude will make you miserable or joyful – Don’t allow yourself to be surrounded by negative people– You don’t have to be joyless, miserable and stressed out during times of adversity.

What you think about the most is what determines your attitude mindset – A mental attitude determines a person’s interpretation and response to  situations. – A mindset is the internal dialog that you have within yourself on a continually basis. – Your mindset is established when you take information about the world around you and that information interpreted, filtered and stored in particular way.

thoughts are more dominant in your mind. Make the choice to be a person with an excellent attitude.

4 Customer Service Skills that Every Employee Needs

4 Customer Service Skills that Every Employee Needs

1. Patience

If you don’t see this near the top of a customer service skills list, you should just stop reading.

Not only is patience important to customers, who often reach out to support when they are confused and frustrated, but it’s also important to the business at large: we’ve shown you before that great service beats fast service every single time.

Yet patience shouldn’t be used as an excuse for slothful service either!

Derek Sivers explained his view on “slower” service as being an interaction where the time spent with the customer was used to better understand their problems and needs from the company.

If you deal with customers on a daily basis, be sure to stay patient when they come to you stumped and frustrated, but also be sure to take the time to truly figure out what they want — they’d rather get competent service than be rushed out the door!

2. Attentiveness

The ability to really listen to customers is so crucial for providing great service for a number of reasons. Last week I went over a few customer feedback systems, and long before that I showed you the data on why listening to customer feedback is a must for many businesses who are looking to innovate.

Not only is it important to pay attention to individual customer interactions (watching the language/terms that they use to describe their problems), but it’s also important to be mindful and attentive to the feedback that you receive at large.

For instance, customers may not be saying it outright, but perhaps there is a pervasive feeling that your software’s dashboard isn’t laid out correctly. Customers aren’t likely to say, “Please improve your UX!”, but they may say things like, “I can never find the search feature,” or, “Where is the _____ function at again?”
What are your customers telling you without saying it?

3. Clear Communication Skills

Make sure you’re getting to the problem at hand quickly; customers don’t need your life story or to hear about how your day is going.

More importantly, you need to be cautious about how some of your communication habits translate to customers, and it’s best to err on the side of caution whenever you find yourself questioning a situation.

An example: The last time I went to get work done on my car, I was told by an employee that if I wanted to get an oil change, it would be “included” in my final bill.

I thought that meant I’d be getting it for free, yet as it turns out, that wasn’t the case. The employee apologized and I truly believe it was an accident (they just worked there), but I haven’t been back to that shop since because of the miscommunication.
When it comes to important points that you need to relay clearly to customers, keep it simple and leave nothing to doubt.

4. Knowledge of the Product

The best forward-facing employees in your company will work on having a deep knowledge of how your product works.

It’s not that every single team member should be able to build your product from scratch, but rather they should know the ins and outs of how your product works, just like a customer who uses it everyday would. Without knowing your product from front-to-back, you won’t know how to help customers when they run into problems. Gregory Ciotti

Close those shades. Anything that keeps the sun from coming in and creating a greenhouse effect will make it easier for your air conditioning unit to maintain cooler temperatures. For the longer term, consider planting leafy trees or bushes to give your home more coverage in areas that get a lot of sun.

Keep the filters clean. It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. In fact, Geoff Godwin, vice president of marketing at Emerson Climate Technologies, the country’s largest provider of heating and cooling systems, says it’s important to clean out air conditioning filters once a month, which usually involves running water through them and letting them air-dry.

Program the thermostatIf your cat is home alone all day, he probably won’t mind if things heat up a bit before you get home. Programmable thermostats, which allow the temperature to automatically rise during the day when no one is home, can lead to annual savings of 30 percent, Godwin estimates. Even though most systems today have programmable thermostats, people only use them half the time, which means a lot of systems work harder than necessary. (If setting the thermostat leaves you scratching your head, the step-by-step video on the government’s Energy Star website, energystar.gov, can help.)

Unplug, unplug, unplug. Even television sets, DVD players and computers that are turned off can suck power out of outlets (aptly referred to as “vampire power”). That’s why you should either unplug your electronics or use a Smart Strip, which cuts power when it’s not needed. One exception: Overhead fans, especially at night, can cool air more cheaply than turning down the thermostat. energystar.gov

Do These 3 Things on Friday to Make Monday Awesome

Do These 3 Things on Friday to Make Monday Awesome
How many awesome Mondays have you had in your life? If you are like me, not many I reckon. Mondays can be grim. You are feeling very fragile, nervous, perhaps a little depressed at the mountain of work facing you, and you are having fits of nostalgia about the great weekend. But what if you could organize Fridays a bit better to make the entry into the Monday atmosphere less traumatic? Read on, because you could soon be making your Mondays awesome.

1. Get one major task finished
This is the task that you have said that you will do by Friday. TGIF (Thank God it’s Friday) is now here and you just have to get it done. Here are some tips to make sure this happens this Friday and not Monday or Tuesday … or even next Friday!

2. Find a quiet place to work
There may be areas where you can shut yourself away to finish the above task. This is essential as you can avoid the ‘drive-bys’ and all the other interruptions that inevitably mess up your concentration. Gloria Mark, Professor of Informatics at the University of California has researched the effect of interruptions on productivity. Not only is valuable time lost but stress levels are increased.

3. Now plan the week ahead
Make a to do list now, rather than on Monday morning when you may be overwhelmed with the mayhem. When planning the week ahead, keep in mind that Mondays and Tuesdays are the most productive days at work, so plan the most difficult tasks for then.
With the to do list made, you can easily cut it by 50% so that you are left with the top priorities for the coming week. Employees frequently misjudge timing and also tend to put minor jobs on the list.BY ROBERT LOCKE

STARTING NEW

Remember today, for it is the beginning.
Today marks the start of a brave new future.

POST WRITTEN BY: MARC CHERNOFF

1.Start giving your ideas and dreams a chance. – In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance; it’s about taking a chance.  You’ll never be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won’t work.  Most of the time you just have to go for it!  And no matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be.  Either you succeed or you learn something.  Win-Win.

2.Start believing that you’re ready for the next step. – You are ready!  Think about it.  You have everything you need right now to take the next small, realistic step forward.  So embrace the opportunities that come your way, and accept the challenges – they’re gifts that will help you to grow.

3.Start entering new relationships for the right reasons. – Enter new relationships with dependable, honest people who reflect the person you are and the person you want to be.  Choose friends you are proud to know, people you admire, who show you love and respect – people who reciprocate your kindness and commitment.  And pay attention to what people do, because a person’s actions are much more important than their words or how others represent them.

4.Start giving new people you meet a chance. – It sounds harsh, but you cannot keep every friend you’ve ever made.  People and priorities change.  As some relationships fade others will grow.  Appreciate the possibility of new relationships as you naturally let go of old ones that no longer work.  Trust your judgment.  Embrace new relationships, knowing that you are entering into unfamiliar territory.  Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to meet someone that might just change your life forever.

5.Start competing against an earlier version of yourself. – Be inspired by others, appreciate others, learn from others, but know that competing against them is a waste of time.  You are in competition with one person and one person only – yourself.  You are competing to be the best you can be.  Aim to break your own personal records.

The 3 Best Ways To Prevent Depression Naturally

The 3 Best Ways To Prevent Depression Naturally

1. Get enough sleep.
There’s nothing like tossing and turning all night to put you in a bad mood, but sleep disturbances may go further than that. According to researchers, disturbances in circadian rhythms have been linked to depression, and resynchronizing circadian rhythms using melatonin supplements or light therapy may actually have antidepressant effects.
Whether you’re dealing with major depression or just looking to boost your mood, improving your sleep hygiene is an important first step. Go to bed at the same time each day, turn off the screens a bit earlier than normal, and look into light therapy if your work schedule means you don’t get much sunlight.
2. Exercise.
You’ve probably heard this before, but listen up: Exercise is incredibly valuable, not only for general health, but for its mood-boosting effects, too. You don’t need to run a marathon to reap the benefits of exercise. In a recent study, researchers had depressed patients pedal a stationary bike, measuring their subjective symptoms and cortisol (stress hormone) levels before and afterwards. They found that after just 15 minutes of exercise, both the patients’ symptoms of depression and cortisol levels were significantly reduced.
3. Find passion in life.
Even if you’re eating healthy, getting enough sleep and doing your exercise, nothing will boost your mood like having a sense of purpose. According to Blue Zones, people who have a sense of purpose live up to seven years longer than those who don’t.
In a study of community-dwelling elderly people in Japan, researchers used recall reports to learn about their subjects’ lifestyles. They found that those who didn’t show symptoms of depression had a history of physical exercise, a healthy diet and the presence of hobbies throughout their lives. Finding activities you enjoy that give you a sense of purpose is a surefire way to improve your mood and reduce your risk of depression.
