QUOTES:

Who can I trust? You have to invest in somebody and chances are you're probably going to invest in somebody who's going to deceive you. I've been conned a couple of times, but now I'm a little more savvy. Maggie Gyllenhaal

Better to be occasionally cheated than perpetually suspicious. B.C. Forbes

 

Cats have a scam going - you buy the food, they eat the food, they go away; that's the deal. Eddie Izzard

This episode is about creative scams. That’s scams that are aimed, not at the general public, but specifically at those working in the creative industries.

 SCAMS_quote_1.png

QUOTES:

It was the heart of any scam or fiddle -- keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing. Terry Pratchett

We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we're being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned? Guy Ritchie 

There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. Evgeny Morozov

Who is going to believe a con artist? Everyone, if she is good. Andy Griffith

A lot of hackers set up scam sites. They can impersonate a site like PayPal, for instance. Michael Demon Calce

Hollywood is largely about scammers and con men. It was my main livelihood for about 25 years, and the scams were beautiful and ugly, cheap and expensive, but, wow, were there a lot of scammers. Ben Stein

REJECTION AND RESILIENCE - Episode 64

Building RESILIENCE isn’t easy so in this show, I look at what exactly it is AND at strategies that will help you to create and maintain it.

 64_rejection_and_resilience.png

 QUOTES:

I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat. Sylvester Stallone 

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. Confucius

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Helen Keller

Some things are in our control and others not. We control our opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and whatever are NOT our actions. The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained and unhindered, but those not in our control are weak, slavish, restrained, belonging to others. Epictitus

Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant. Horace

I'm not sure if resilience is ever achieved alone. Experience allows us to learn from example. But if we have someone who loves us-I don't mean who indulges us, but who loves us enough to be on our side-then it's easier to grow resilience, to grow belief in self, to grow self-esteem. And it's self-esteem that allows a person to stand up. Maya Angelou

Self-criticism is an art, not many are qualified to practice. Joyce Carol Oates

Optimism is the most important human trait, because it allows us to evolve our ideas, to improve our situation, and to hope for a better tomorrow. Seth Godin

You'll never find rainbows, If you're looking down... Charlie Chaplin

Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember - the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you. Zig Ziglar

Putting off an easy thing makes it hard. Putting off a hard thing makes it impossible. George C. Lorimer

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Frederick Douglass

I believe any success in life is made by going into an area with a blind, furious optimism. Sylvester Stallone 

Grain by grain, a loaf. Stone upon stone, a palace. George Bernard Shaw

All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming. Helen Keller

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. Thomas Edison 

 

The next show #65 will be released on Sunday 26th April.
