” You do not get what you want. You get what you negotiate.” – Harvey Mackay
Isn’t it actually true? The human mind is always equipped with negotiation skills. Once they have want something, they set a goal to achieve. But, along the way, if they realize that they might not get what they want, they try to negotiate and get the best possible from the situation.
Negotiating is really a mid-point between getting what you want in your way or settling for the best possible outcome.Its usually up to us to assess the situation and other factors in question. I personally believe that one should have the ability to know when one can strive for what they want and when it is necessary to negotiate and settle.
NEGOTIATING WITH KIDS
I have always observed that kids have the best negotiating skills. They always have an eye for who among their parents would be the one who could give them what they want. Also, if the parent does not give in to their demands, they resort to negotiation and get it done their way.
Quoted by John F.Kennedy –
“Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.”
