What is your motivation? in Team Building #Compensation #Team Building

6 hours ago

In an Article entitled, "Difference Between Optimists, Pessimists, and Realists" , Michael (no last name given) enlightens us in the often confused understanding of the words, Pessimist, Optimist, and Realist. He says:

A pessimist is often viewed as a negative person, but in reality this isn’t the case. Most people confuse pessimism with fatalism which is the root of this misconception. By definition a pessimistic person is usually a skeptic or doubter, someone who needs proof before they jump on board. Whenever they hear something new, they are the first to scrutinize it before they will accept it. Can be frustrating to some (especially optimists), but often they are the ones that facilitate the level of quality and change. Investigators and scientific people often represent this group.



Optimists are often touted as the best way to be and are usually shown to be well adjusted and happy. They tend to look on the more favorable side of life and events expecting the most favorable outcome. Their outlook hinges on idealism and often overlooks the basic nature of people. Because of their upbeat mindset, they are often the most likely to be gullible and naive. They are the kind of people politicians like because they can be easily persuaded.


Which leave the realist. A realist is someone who tends to view or present things as they really are at this moment in time. They normally don’t worry about what was (even though they are aware) and also don’t dwell on what could be. They work and live in the moment, what is currently at hand. Even stranger is pessimists view them as optimists, and optimists often view them as pessimists.


We need to be careful about labeling people and using wrongly defined words. Each of these groups of people can have an overall positive mindset. It's all about how easily we swallow what we are given!

Great point for those that didn't know about bulk mailing, Captain! The added value is that people will be receiving the opportunity by someone local. It gives an added sense of trust.

Is there a loophole in Team Building #VersaPoints

As I'm sure you know Gery cannot possibly read every post because of his busy schedule. I suggest to anyone with a specific question for Gery to go to the "Ask Gery" Index and post your question.

Commissions are generated by Sales. It would not make sense for SFI to PAY a commission on anything free. Remember, a commission is a portion of the PROFIT.

selling on TC for christmas in Sales #Sales

That is the huge disadvantage about drop-shipping in my opinion. As long as you make it very clear about shipping times some may go ahead with the order.

Those customers getting "blind-sided" about shipping times will indeed have a bad taste in their mouth about where they made the purchase.

There are just so many sites with immediate shipping and great prices it is difficult at this late time to compete.

I merely supplied some insight to where that expression come from. I'm sure that some might wonder about it. One can develop their own "correlation" as to personal application.

Several people are inaccurate here. The rules say "the age of majority in his/her state or country."

There are a few Countries where the age is lower than 18!
Please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_majority

Ghana is listed at age 18. Some Countries as low as age 15

Praise The Lord, & Pass The Ammunition!!! in Marketing #Marketing

1 day ago

Bruce, I hadn't heard that expression in years! LOL! Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

On December 7, 1941 — which President Franklin D. Roosevelt would memorably name “a date which will live in infamy” on the following day — hundreds of Japanese warplanes made a deadly surprise attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.
When the crew of the heavy cruiser USS New Orleans rushed on deck they saw devastation all around them.

Not far away, a huge cloud of smoke was rising from the battleship USS Arizona and it was sinking.

Beyond the Arizona, the USS Oklahoma was rolling over. Sailors were jumping from its sides.


Another nearby battleship, the USS West Virginia, was badly damaged and sagging amidships.
The New Orleans was docked for repairs when the attack occurred. As usual during repairs, the ship’s electricity was temporarily coming through a power cable from the shore.


Soon after they came on deck, the crew began firing the cruiser’s guns at Japanese planes.
But when they needed more ammunition they discovered that the power cable to shore had been cut, making the electric ammunition hoist inoperable.

Undeterred, the men formed lines and began carrying the heavy shells to the guns by hand. As they did, ship chaplain Lieutenant Howell M. Forgy walked along the deck encouraging them, shouting “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!”

The Japanese pilots eventually flew away after sinking nine U.S. ships and damaging 21 others. Their attack killed 2,350 Americans, including 1,177 sailors on the USS Arizona. (This Day in Quotes)

This, as a recommendation ...! in Miscellaneous

1 day ago

Of course I am talking apples vs apples. " but if someone else offers the same thing for a lower price".

If Joe is selling Washington Apples for $1.00 each and Larry is selling them for .50 cents from the same orchard, Joe may be proud of his apples but if people know about it Larry will be selling his.

Allow me to add that I was not being critical. I was just responding to MY perception of what was meant. I remember ECA's selling the EXACT same items being offered elsewhere that in some cases were more than 100% higher! Sorry, "standards" can leave price gougers broke.

I'm not sure of the point you are making but if someone else offers the same thing for a lower price you must follow suit and lower the price too, or risk going broke!

Wal Mart has put a LOT of people out of business by lowering price AND giving good service (at least when Sam was still around)
