Life can throw us a lot of curves. Our childhood, our parents, physical challenges, early experiences on the job, all indelibly imprint us with bad behaviors that are hard to shake. A woman abused as a child, a man whose father told him he’d never amount to much, a person who lives with insecurity. Big or small, they damage our relationships, the quality of our work, and our chances for success. But there are three specific personality “quirks” that really set people back from achieving all they could become in life. I’m not a psychologist, and don’t have all the answers for fixing these problems, but I’ve discovered that if we can take a frank look at ourselves, and at least recognize the limiting behaviors, it helps us get started on the road to freedom.

2014 Fraud Report Trends Infographic

With fraudsters using more and more sophisticated methods every day, what steps do organizations need to take in order to stay ahead? According to our 2014 Fraud report, the rise in the amount of suspected fraud from 2013 to 2014 was significant, with 87 percent of survey respondents reporting they had experienced suspected fraud over the last 12 months, up from two-thirds in 2013. Understanding fraud targets allows an organization to discover and respond to potential threats, ensuring that legitimate customers get in and fraud stays out. There are three major trends that were apparent in this year’s fraud report:
1. Fraudsters continue to target web applications.
2. Credit, debit, and prepaid card fraud remains a major concern.
3. Small dollar fraud prevails.
By addressing any weaknesses and enhancing the capabilities of a fraud prevention program using dynamic identity verification methods, an organization can effectively detect fraud and prevent it from taking place. Now is the time to act in order to protect customers and ensure that transactions process smoothly. Identity verification and fraud prevention technology solutions are a great way to ensure compliance with regulations, increase customer acquisition, and drive revenue.

Be Careful of People Who Constantly Complain About their Job

Work is hard. It’s hard for me, it’s hard for you, and pretty much everybody else. So when I encounter someone who’s constantly complaining about their job, how difficult life is, or how busy they are, I tend to start ignoring them. It’s not that I’m a jerk, it’s that I find far too many people who try to impress us with how many balls they’re juggling, how difficult their job is, and how their schedule is just crammed too full. Novelist Richard Ford said something similar about writers:

“Beware of writers who tell you how hard they work. (Beware of anybody who tries to tell you that.) Writing is indeed often dark and lonely, but no one really has to do it. Yes, writing can be complicated, exhausting, isolating, abstracting, boring, dulling, briefly exhilarating; it can be made to be grueling and demoralizing. And occasionally it can produce rewards. But it’s never as hard as, say, piloting an L-1011 into O’Hare on a snowy night in January, or doing brain surgery when you have to stand up for 10 hours straight, and once you start you can’t just stop. If you’re a writer, you can stop anywhere, any time, and no one will care or ever know. Plus, the results might be better if you do.” FULL POST
