Secret # 6 How to Negotiate
It all comes down to this.
Books have been written on this subject and I have read them. I have studied the subject. I have done what I'm telling you to do. This is "How do I get rich". Here are a few tidbits.
It is critical that you be able to make deals in a professional manner, firmly, in charge and knowing what you want. When negotiating, you have to be prepared to walk away from the deal.
At the same time, do not negotiate from a stand point of Lord. It has to be a win win for everyone.
Here is Rule1. Negotiate from a position of unreasonableness. Why? You don't know what will happen. Test the waters. At some point, you have to make a decision of how far you are going to go. Do not allow your emotions to play a role in this.
Many years ago I made my 1st unreasonable offer on a country French mansion and I wanted to turn it into an office building. I knew they wouldn't take the offer but it was the start of negotiations. To my shock they accepted my offer. You never know!
This has to be a win win for all involved. So do not try to beat up your adversary. He may be a future client. Everyone has to feel good in the end.
Always be one of the good guys. It is the answer to, how do you get rich or,

I remember watching an interview of the couple who owned the Gallo Winery. They were asked “to what do you attribute your success”? Mr Gallo answered, “We give to our charities. We have always given even when it was difficult for us to give. But when we gave we were always rewarded with more”.
They had learned the universal law of how to get rich.

What is the big picture? You've heard this before. What is your vision? Do you have one?
What are your goals? I have recently come to realize that goals do not work. But what does work is that if you don't have a visual image of where you are going, you are not going to get there. Let's get back to goals for a minute. Don't confuse what I said with having a daily or monthly check list of what needs to be done.
