LEADERSHIP IS ACTION NOT POSITION
All successful people became successful, because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others.
You can contribute in some way to others, no matter how small your talent. You too, can become successful.
No one achieves success without being of service.
Successful people don't use others, other people use the successful, for above all success is of service.
Everyone has to be someone to someone to be anyone. Service is the essence of success.
RENTING A CAR
Shopping the Internet can be the quickest and best way to compare many Rental Car rates. If you are planning on purchasing extra items such as a damage waiver or insurance, you should also comparison shop those rates.
Make sure their mileage policy is favorable to you so you can avoid extra charges.
Airport fees can be quite large so you might see if it is worth it to use an off-airport facility. However, if the off-airport company picks you up at the airport, you’ll probably still have to pay some of the fee.
You can check their national reservation centers and their local offices; one may be offering a better deal than the other. ASK, if this is the best rate they have available.
Make your reservation as soon as you have decided on plans. Most Rental Car Companies increase their rates as reservations come in and their fleets become booked. Also, certain classes of cars will sell out and you may have to end up reserving and paying for a larger vehicle than you want.
Being flexible about your travel plans can save you money. Rental Companies that focus on the business or replacement market customers often have great weekend specials. The best rates are found during the off season and at other times when the Rental Companies have extra cars sitting around.
Check into booking your vacation as a package. You might be able to save by booking your car along with a certain airline, hotel or attraction ticket package.
Book the smallest car that you will need and hope for a free upgrade. But, remember you may get stuck with that small car.
Check into other size class vehicles. They may have extra cars in a certain class and be offering discounts for that size class.
Use coupons, but read them carefully for exceptions. Most upgrade coupons are “based on availability”, so if you have an upgrade coupon that you wish to use and also have a monetary discount coupon, bring them both. If they can’t honor the upgrade, they may still give you the monetary discount. Also, remember to book any coupons or discounts in your reservation.
Apply any special discount programs for which you are eligible.
When you get to the counter, ask if there are any upgrade specials available, they might have some good deals.
Please take care when you travel anywhere.
YOU ARE YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Always be mindful that you're a product of your environment.
So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your objective.
Analyze your life in terms of your environment.
Are the things around you helping you toward your success, or are they holding you back?
The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are. You're not a captive of your environment.
If you don't like where you are, you can make some changes. You're not planted permanently in the ground like a tree. Don't say, "You would, if you could," start saying, "You will, because you can."
When you become a part of anything it becomes a part of you.
People often handle life as they do bad weather. They while away the time waiting for it to stop. Yet the tide of opportunity comes to everyone.
Opportunity knocks all the time, but you've got to be ready for it. When your chance comes, you must have the equipment to take advantage of it.
The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, for time and chance happen to everyone. Take a second look at what appears to be someone's "good luck." You'll find not luck but preparation, planning and success-producing thinking.
When you're prepared for opportunity your chance for success is sure to come. The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.
Decide that this year will be your year for success and prepare for it to happen.
