Skype is an internet application that can be downloaded and installed for free. Skype enable
a computer to be used to make telephone calls, chat online, send files and send SMS
messages. If you connect to other Skype users the telephone calls, online chat or file
exchanges are free no matter where they are. Skype can also be used to make calls to
normal phones this is called Skype Out calls and the calls cost money and the call charges
are generally very low but do vary on where you are calling. Calls to mobile phones are
generally a similar cost to calls made from a mobile.

How Skype Can be useful to you
As a counsellor you need to keep in touch with your existing customers but also it is important
that you maintain good contact with your Master Counsellor and CD SA. If we wish to have
conference calls then the preferred method is for everybody to use Skype conference calls.
Therefore we strongly recommend that all master counsellors and counsellors use Skype if
they have their own PC.
See the Skype website for instruction on how to download and install Skype.

SMS (text) Messages
As counsellors you must encourage and maintain motivation of your customer, particularly
during the early stage of their diet. The sending of suitable text messages to their mobile
phone is very effective. The Skype SMS service allows you to send the same message to
multiple customers in one action. Assuming that you successfully downloaded and installed
Skype you then need to add your customers (and anybody else you wish to communicate
with) as contacts. You will need to enter their mobile phone number in the record.
As SMS messages are not free (currently R0.98 per message) you will need to purchase
some credit (follow the instructions on the Skype website).

Quotes that may be used as text messages (all less than 160 characters)

Beginning / starting
The beginning is the most important part of the work
If you wish to reach the highest, begin at the lowest
All glory comes from daring to begin
What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step
Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently
Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the
Begin at the beginning, the King said, gravely, and go until you come to the end; then stop.

Version                                         3
Man is what he believes
Every thing possible to be believed is an image of truth.
They conquer who believe they can
If you think you can win, you can win. Faith is necessary to victory
There can be no progress if people have no faith in tomorrow.
Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail
It takes visions and courage to create. It takes faith and courage to prove

Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses
Habit is the denial of creativity and the negation of freedom; a self-imposed straitjacket of
which the wearer is unaware
The creative habit is like a drug
Creativity is the defeat of habit by imposing originality and change
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts
The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken
Habit is the denial of creativity and the negation of freedom; a self-imposed straitjacket of
which the wearer is unaware

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can
look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead
You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you might not get
No one travels so high as he who knows not where he is going
The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for
it unswervingly
It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a
goal and a step likewise
You can’t rest unless you set goals that make you stretch
Give yourself the freedom to explore the possibility of life without limits. Goals are dreams
with deadlines, a means to an end but not the ultimate purpose of life

Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing
The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes
of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives
Creative powers can just as easily turn out to be destructive. It rests solely with the moral
personality whether they apply themselves to good things or to bad. And if this is lacking, no
teacher can supply it or take its place

Version                                            4
Old ideas give way slowly; for they are more than abstract logical forms and categories. They
are habits, predispositions, deeply ingrained attitudes of aversion and preference
Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive,
along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have
found that attitude, follow it.’
What are the conditions of the creative attitude, of seeing and responding, of being aware and
being sensitive to what one is aware of? First of all it requires the capacity to be puzzled.
Children still have the capacity to be puzzled
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right

God is with those who persevere
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and
obstacles vanish
Patience is the companion of wisdom
Be like a postage stamp—stick to one thing until you get there.
Victory belongs to the most persevering
It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop
Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.

Failure / Lapsing
Failures are steps in the ladder of success
If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sure sign that you’re not trying anything very
To try and fail is at least to learn; to fail to try is to suffer the inestimable loss of what might
have been
Failure is the condiment which gives success its flavour
Success is never found. Failure is never fatal. Courage is the only thing
‘Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently
Many people dream of success. To me, success can only be achieved through repeated
failure and introspection

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood
Fear of failure is at least as common as the desire for success. In fact, if harnessed properly,
it can be the energy that drives the wheel
I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps
doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him
To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to
look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I can take the next thing that comes

Version                                            5
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.’
The soft-minded man always fears change. He feels security in the status quo, and he has an
almost morbid fear of the new. For him, the greatest pain is the pain of a new idea.’

They are ill discoverers that think there is no land when they can see nothing but sea
One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long
Nobody is bored when he is trying to make something that is beautiful or to discover
something that is true
No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.’
The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes.’

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the
hardest victory is over self.
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others
‘It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else
‘Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.’
Courage is needed to step out of your comfort zone, in order to grow into your new comfort
Courage is grace under pressure
Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are waiting to see us act just once
with beauty and courage

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with
action can change the world
A true leader is one who designs the cathedral and then shares the vision that inspires others
to build it
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart ... Who looks outside,
dreams. Who looks inside, awakens
The one thing worse than not being able to see is having no vision
Vision is the key to understanding leadership, and real leaders have never lost the childlike
ability to dream dreams
A man to carry on a successful business must have imagination. He must see things in a
vision, a dream of the whole thing
It takes visions and courage to create. It takes faith and courage to prove

Version                                          6
The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.
The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes
If one is the master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time,
insight into and understanding of many things
A man would do well to carry a pencil in his pocket and write down the thoughts of the
moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable and should be
secured because they seldom return
Chance favours only the prepared mind
There is a time and a place for creativity
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity
