Five Characteristics You Need to Excel at Work – by Rick Warren

Do Your Best
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.”
(Colossians 3:23 TEV)

The Bible identifies five characteristics of people who excel at what they do:

  1. People who excel work with enthusiasm. Regardless of whether the job is big or small, give it your best. Great performers give their best effort, no matter what the size of the audience: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people” (Colossians 3:23 TEV).
  2. People who excel sharpen their skills. They never stop developing, growing, learning, and improving: “If your ax is dull and you don’t sharpen it, you have to work harder to use it. It is smarter to plan ahead” (Ecclesiastes 10:10 TEV). It takes more than desire to excel; it takes skill! Remember: You’re never wasting time when you’re sharpening your “ax.”
  3. People who excel keep their word. They are reliable. They can be counted on to do what they say they’ll do. They excel because people of integrity are rare in our society: “Everyone talks about how loyal and faithful he is, but just try to find someone who really is!” (Proverbs 20:6 TEV)
  4. People who excel maintain a positive attitude. Even under pressure, change, or unrealistic demands, they don’t allow themselves to become negative: “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life” (Philippians 2:14-16a NIV). And remember: “If your boss is angry at you, don’t quit! A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes” (Ecclesiastes 10:4 NLT).
  5. People who excel do more than is expected. This is a secret that every successful person has discovered. You’ll never excel by only doing what is required. Jesus said, “If someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live generously” (Matthew 5:40-42 MSG).

The Broadway lyricist Oscar Hammerstein once told the story of seeing the top of the Statue of Liberty from a helicopter. He was impressed because of the incredible detail the artist had sculpted on an area that no one was expected to see. In fact, the Statue of Liberty was completed with no idea that man would someday be able to fly over the statue!

Talk About It

When you’re tempted to cut corners, thinking, “No one will ever know,” remember that God is looking down and sees everything you do. Give him your best this week!

FOR BID PURCHASES IN THE LAST 4 Months:

If you or someone in your group has submitted a cashiers check to Zeek in the last 4 months or so PLEASE CALL YOUR BANK RIGHT NOW. This includes WESTERN UNION. There are people who have sent cashiers checks that long ago which have NOT COME BACK TO THE BANK FOR PAYMENT YET.

The bank will STOP PAYMENT ON THE CASHIERS CHECK IF IT WAS LOST, STOLEN OR DESTROYED.  IF YOUR CHECK HAS NOT COME BACK FOR PAYMENT, TELL YOUR BANK IT WAS LOST.

Here is a letter from an affiliate in the group:

Here is the scoop on Official/Cashiers checks. Each bank will have a similar policy. I am a bank manager and am giving you first hand information. Your first call/visit to your bank should be to inquire if the check has been cashed. If not, let the bank know that your check has been lost. The bank will NOT put a stop payment on an Official check unless it is lost or stolen. Telling them the company has closed will not yield the desired result. Since the company has been shut down your check is effectively lost. Tell them the check is lost and you have confirmed the company does not have it in their possession. The typical timing of a stop payment is 10 business days. After the elapsed stop time you can request they re-issue the check and write on it “not used for intended purpose” and the original purchaser (you) will be able to deposit the check back to their account. As a caveat, you WILL need your Official/Cashiers check duplicate copy supplied to you at the time of purchase to initiate this transaction. Again bank policies differ and the timing may vary but in general this is the process.

REFUNDS ON MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS:

Many have reported that they are calling their credit card company or bank to ask for refunds on all Zeek related monthly charges… even as far back as February.

Simply explain that you did authorize the charges, but it turned out to be deemed a Ponzi. Banks have already been receiving calls about this.

LETTER FROM NxPay

NxPay
To Our Valued Customer:

As you may be aware the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has commenced an investigation into Rex Venture Group, LLC, d/b/a ZEEKREWARDS.COM (“Rex Ventures”) and filed a complaint in U.S. District Court.   The investigation and complaint has led to the closing of Rex Ventures.   NxSystems Inc. is in no way affiliated with this closing.  However, as of August 17, 2012, we have been given a directive from the United States District Court to freeze all assets affiliated with Rex Ventures (Zeek Rewards).
We are in direct contact with the appointed trustee from the United States District Court and are currently pulling reports and reconciling each account.

This reconciliation will assist with the investigation and determine all funds that belong to the NxPay account holders versus funds that belonged to Rex Ventures.  Due to the court order and during this investigation period you will not have the ability to move any funds in or out of your NxPay account.  We hope to have the reconciliation completed within a couple of weeks.

We ask at this time for your patience and understanding as we are under a direct court order and the task at hand is very large.  We will continue with our communication as we have new updates regarding your account and when funds can again be moved.  Keep in mind, this reconciliation is our highest priority as well as maintaining communication with the customers.

If you have any questions feel free to contact NxSystems, Inc.  In the interim we thank you for your patience and cooperation in this matter.
Best regards,
NxSystems, Inc. Support Department.

WATCH OUT FOR “RELOAD” SCAMS

Reload scams hit consumers when they’re down, offering to help them make back money they lost to a previous scam or bad business decision.  These scams have been popular for years with telemarketing fraud rings but can also follow other types of fraud.       We’re now seeing reload scams seeking to recruit consumers who were members of Zeekler, a penny auction website headquartered in North Carolina that shut its doors last week and entered into a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The SEC determined that Zeekler was a Ponzi scheme, using money from later investors to pay back earlier investors until the scheme started running out of money.  The Attorney General’s Office is continuing to investigate Zeekler.

Lookout closely for anyone touting an “Emergency Zeek Webinar” these people are gathering your information to market their opportunity to you! One of them was pushing the bidify auction site which is also already shut down. Two names you should be leary of is T Le Mont Silver & Dave Burke. Unsubscribe from them at the bottom of the emails they are sending out.

Blogs, news releases online, and individuals leaving comments in articles about the Zeekler shut down are already touting opportunities “for those that are looking for something that can help them replace the income they were receiving from Zeek Rewards.”  If you’ve been a part of a scheme such as Zeekler that collapsed, or if you lost money to another recent scam, don’t fall for a reload scam.  Better to cut your losses than lose even more.
