My dear Entrepreneur, you will have to accept my apologies one more time for missing the post last week. I know that many of you my fans must have felt disappointed by that. However, I do hope that your hearts are also large enough to overlook the omission and move on. I believe that you are not too annoyed to come back and read this blog following the silence. Life situations occasionally make us unable to fulfill commitments. This does not mean that we withdraw from it. We can fall down but we will rise up with a vengeance (against failure) and recover what we have missed. We will always work towards success and this we will do.
Today I’m going to write about the win-win mindset. Within the week I was meditating about the win-win mindset or attitude, so I thought it good to blog about this. Do you know that some of us entrepreneurs and also some other players in the business world oftentimes miss some opportunities for improving and developing our businesses because of lack of this? Do you know that sometimes we negotiate too hard and forget about the interests and concerns of our partners? Many business deals have fallen through because of the fact that some parties are not ready to make a move towards a central point that is beneficial to all. Certainly this is not good for business. Don’t you agree with me?
The win-win mindset simply means that you work for a solution, agreement, decision or position that is beneficial to all parties concerned. It’s the middle path ideally. With win-win situations everybody gets away smiling; willing and committed to proceed with the deal. It portrays willingness to give and take, not a take and take approach that sometimes we want to use in business. When you take and take (I mean taking too much and uncompromisingly), the other party gives and gives (you can rephrase this to lose and lose) and eventually runs away. Ideally, in a win-win situation both parties give and take. The results of this can be amazing.
So, what are the top benefits of a win-win approach or mindset for an entrepreneur?
So, today I will have another swift closing – because I think I’ve taken quite a bit of your time with the long article. I need to set you free, while I also run to something else. It’s another win-win situation here!
With every good wish and win-wins,
The Wise Entrepreneur
