Don't Underestimate Your Influence Over Others

Most of us underestimate the power and influence we have over others. The truth is that you can, and do, have great influence over others. You have the ability to turn a person's bad day into a good day, a grouch into a friendly person, even a person with a complaint into a person happy with how they’re being treated. That's why customer service diplomacy is so important.

Today’s complex world puts greater demands on our time, with more job pressures and everyday glitches. Conversely, customers are often close to the end of their rope before they even get to you … as the following anecdote indicates.

An obviously frazzled man walks into a diner. "Just give me a couple eggs over easy and a kind word," he tells the waitress. The waitress brought the eggs to him and started to leave. "What about the kind word," he asked. "Don't eat the eggs," she deadpanned.

Customers often just want that kind word with a sincere smile, or an honest, pleasant greeting to be made to feel welcome and important. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

How To Make Your Kid A Millionaire

For as little as $100 you can set up a Roth IRA for any child who has earned income, and you can invest as much as your child makes — up to $4,000 a year.
Tax-free compounding over time produces a powerful payoff. A yearly $1,500 contribution will be worth nearly one-million-dollars in 50 years, assuming an 8% average annual return.
Understandably, few teens are likely to be excited about saving their hard-earned baby-sitting money for retirement. The way to make it work is by offering your teenager a deal such as matching what they earn, and then placing that amount in an IRA for them.

Trust Is Quietly Draining Away … Implications Are Not Good

In 1972 when the General Social Survey (funded by the National Science Foundation) first asked the question, "Do you trust others," 50% of the respondents answered "Yes." Today only 33% of Americans believe that most people can be trusted.
We're not talking about the loss of faith in big institutions such as the government, the church or Wall Street, which fluctuates with events.
Social trust brings good things to society, such as making it easier to compromise or make a deal. With trust, people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. And where trust appears it's also conducive to promoting economic growth.
Distrust, on the other hand, seems to encourage corruption. At the least, it diverts energy to counting change, drawing up 100-page legal contracts and building gated communities.

Bottom-line: For four decades now, trust in the other fellow — a gut-level ingredient of democracy — has been quietly draining away.
