Self Empowerment by negotiating to success
In a nutshell, Negotiation simply means to coerce or persuade the other parties, either one person or many to nod and say “Yes”. It is an art of persuasion that can create significant value out from this course of action, for example if you are asking for 2 + 2 and you only ask for it, it will just give you a 4 but if you negotiate for it, you might even achieve 22. This is the power of Negotiation and learning it will lead you to ultimate success in your personal life and career.

In this post, I will focus on 5 tips and techniques to improve your negotiation skills.

1. Know your Objective

When you want to negotiate for something, you must first identify the “something” and be prepared for the discussion. A person who has done his homework beforehand will sound more meaningful throughout the process and nonsense conversation will break rapport that will in term break the deal.

2. Control your emotion

During a negotiation process, there is always a time when conflict of interest occur, bear in mind to keep your cool and deal with it calmly. If you begin to shout and threaten, you will force the other party to put up a defensive wall and back out. Remember this, nobody likes bully or felt threatened. Deals are only possible if both parties feel there are some gains for themselves.

3. Be an uninterested buyer or seller

Always give the impression that you are not desperate or very keen in getting the things you desire, believe me, this technique make wonder.

4. Timing are critical

Timing plays a major role in negotiation and there is always good and bad time. For example, if u choose to negotiate during a bad time, even the most simplest request will be declined. Some of the bad timings are when the other party is enraged, tired, stressed or occupied with other matters.

5. Effective listening

Be a good listener, ask a question and listen, do not keep talking non-stop. This will allow you to gather more information on what the other negotiator wants.

Embrace and practice these techniques to negotiate your way to success.

“Succeed does not come to you, you have to go to it” Using this philosophy, I decided to create this self help website to push myself to achieve self empowerment and also to motivate all of my friends out there who are reading and staying with me throughout this empowering journey.

More about me…
I am born in the island of Millionaires, guess where? It is Singapore, just a little tiny ret dot in the world but had achieved incredible results in a short 30 years with the highest percentage of millionaires here. Do you want to be a Millionaire? “Of course!” is the reply of most people but how many people can achieve it? You might be telling yourself that all these millionaires are either born with a silver spoon in their month with wealthy parents or just that they are very lucky to be successful. “How lucky they are? How I wish I have what they I have?”

I can tell you here, “You are wrong!” How do you define luck? For me, I will define luck as “LUCK = OPPORTUNITY + ACTION”. So I will always bear this in mind and getting prepared for the opportunity and take massive action when it arises. This will be the mindset of the millionaire.

For me, I might not be a millionaire now, but working progressively towards this goal. “Dream big and take baby steps” is my strategy. My ultimate goal is to achieve personal growth and financial growth. With this strong desire in mind, I am taking action every day to empower myself to change my mindset from a victim to winner one.

Remember this in mind, “You will never FAIL unless you QUIT”.
