Vivian chih’s sharing of negotiation skill

Learning from the following favorite words:


It seems like a simple question- Who is really responsible for our lives?—but somehow the answer eludes us more frequently than we would like. Even though intellectually we know that we are responsible for our words, our actions, and even our reactions, we often look at our lives, wondering how we got where we are and typically find the answer in external factors. ….In other words, it was not our decision; someone else or some external circumstance is to blame.
