“Will Power Life Negotiation”
Do you have willpower, or does Will have power over you?
Who has power over you, is it you or Will (metaphor for someone else)? Some people confuse themselves when they think they’re controlling their lives when in reality it’s someone else. So question yourself. Do you really do what you want with your life, or do you subjugate yourself to someone else’s will? Stated another way, do you have willpower, or does Will have power over you?
The one way to assess who’s really controlling your life is to take note of what you do, why you do it, with whom you do it, and when you do what you do. Therein will lie the opening to the answer as to what degree you’re in control of your life.
If you want to reach the highest of heights and experience all that you’re capable of achieving, you have to be in control of your life. That means you have to recognize the power that you possess and not be afraid to use it. I suggest you look at yourself as always having power; measure it in degrees of greater or less.
Once you raise your awareness to who’s controlling your life and the degree of power you have at any point in time, you’ll begin to recognize that you have more willpower than the power Will attempts to hold over you. Once that occurs you’ll instantly become more powerful because you will awaken your source of power and inspiration … and everything will be right with the world.
What does this have to do with negotiations?
In a negotiation power ebbs and flows. To the degree you recognize the direction it’s flowing and how to obtain and use it, you’ll become more powerful. That will occur simply by the fact that your awareness will have been raised, which means you’ll be less likely to blindly fall prey to the other negotiator’s tactics.
It’s been stated that everyone is powerful. It’s the degree and recognition of that power that most people miss in a negotiation. When you begin to control your power and not let Will control it, you’ll become more powerful and win more negotiations … and everything will be right with the world.
Remember, you’re always negotiating!
