By knowing clearly what you want your life to be like, you can set specific goals, then make decisions with the intention – its all about your intention – to get closer to your goals. In the long run, the decision doesn’t matter as long as you have a clear intention behind the decision. If you consistently intend to reach your long term goals, you will, no matter what decisions you make.
In any negotiation, don’t forget how valuable you are. You are bringing things to the table, and they are worth something. At the same time, don’t be greedy, even if you can. Both parties must be treated equally. We must each raise the social standard of moral acceptance, simply by doing what we say we’re going to do, and sticking to our word. You can only trust others after you trust yourself.
