One Minute Tip:
THE POWER OF SELF-IMAGE
Visualizing yourself as a success in your field of endeavor is the inside tip in accomplishing anything you want. If you can specifically imagine being the person you want to become, you will attain that reality.
Forgive yourself. Just as you would another person, tell yourself that it’s okay for all those mistakes, or the should-haves that keep popping up in your mind. Don’t dwell on the past and get blocked by events from long ago.
Let go of fears and anxieties. Although it certainly is easier said than done, learn to change negative thoughts into a positive action. Are you afraid of poverty – that you’ll never make ends meet, or never buy that house, or be destitute once you stop working? Then turn that into the positive goal of financial security.
Do people make you anxious? Maybe you feel inferior, not as good as others. Everybody has feelings of inadequacy. Just turn them around into positive goals. You may be paralyzed by the thoughts that you are unattractive. It is your thoughts that make it a reality. Change your modes of behavior and you will make friends.
In most cases, it is your own negative thoughts that cause you to stay stuck in whatever place you’re in. Keep moving. Take the risks. You may need to change your job, or move to another city. You might take up a sport or hobby. Become active in your life – participate. And you will grow into the image you see for yourself.
”Worry is like a rocking chair – it gives you something to
do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.”
”Dance like no one’s watching, love like you’ll never be hurt,
sing like no one’s listening, live like it’s heaven on earth.”
”It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money.” – Elinor Goulding Smith

5 Ways to Master Office Politics
Office politics has long been synonymous with gossiping and backstabbing. But the fact of the matter is, you have a choice to engage or not engage in office politics.
Believe it or not, office politics is similar to a game. There are hard and fast rules. Unfortunately, there are no magical ways to remove office politics.
However, there are ways to minimize office politics. There really are ways to keep the office environment light, friendly, as well as harmless.
The following are ways to master office politics:
Talk with office people
As much as possible, it is always a good idea to talk to your fellow co-workers. E-mail communication is for those who are not in the office.
Talking to people suggests an idea that you are making an effort to talk and communicate.
Take note that isolation is one of the great methods for you to be overlooked by the powers-that-be in the office. When you simply refuse to take part in the workplace, you could possibly be setting yourself up to be a gossip subject or a scapegoat of office trivial issues.
So try not to become a lonely outsider. Practice the art of effective communication.
Say goodbye to gossip
Think about it, would you prefer your name being circulated as the person who revealed the dirt on a co-worker or the one who likes to tell somebodys secret?
If have a grudge towards a specific person, it is not advisable to smear his reputation.
As much as possible, do not take sides. A divided workplace is a breeding ground for low productivity and morale.
Try not to complain
Like a bad habit, complaints drag everyones mood. Bosses prefer those who solve problems and not just seek them.
If you cannot solve a problem, try not to be a part of the problem.
Keep the peace
If there is a worker who is particularly out for vengeance or blood, try to approach that person and politely ask his concerns.
Try to help in finding the solution and not inflame them.
Look way ahead
Take note that this is a trap. Be optimistic. Try to tell yourself that this too shall pass.
All in all, office politics is there but it is still your choice whether you would allow it to rule your work life. The decision is yours.

Dilbert’s Words of Wisdom
Poor Dilbert (the cartoon character, for any who aren’t familiar with him) has a cynical attitude, but often knows exactly what’s going on and where the truth is buried. Here are a few nuggets of wisdom from the Corporate World. Enjoy!
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either.
I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by.
Accept that some days you are the pigeon and some days the statue.
Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If he isn’t there the first time, chances are you won’t be needing him again.
On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.
Don’t be irreplaceable — if you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
When bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.
If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Then quit, and remove all evidence that you tried. No use being a damn fool about it.
You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.
When you don’t know what to do, walk fast, carry a clipboard, and look worried.
Birthday wishes…. A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday.
“I’d love to be six again,” she replied.
On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear – everything there was! Wow!
Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to a McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered her a Big Mac along with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake.
Then it was off to a movie – the latest Star Wars epic, and hot dogs, popcorn, Pepsi Cola and M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked,
“Well, dear, what was it like being six again?”
One eye opened. “You idiot, I meant my dress size.”
The moral of this story is: If a woman speaks and a man is actually listening, he will still get it wrong.
