“Some women as soon as they hear no, back down fast.
They think now I have gone too far or I don’t want this to turn into a conflict.Women often have the same response to low counter offers.
‘They have asked for a lot, the other negotiator offers much less’ and they think ‘OK that will be fine I don’t want to fight about it.’
Remember, not backing down is not the same as starting a fight.” Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever’s Ask for it. An Amazing book on negotiation skill development.

‘Wealth lures wealth as tame elephants the wild ;

wealth cannot be earned by wishful thinking ;

there can be no trade without wealth .

the man who lets the wealth that Fortune showers on him ,

sit idle , finds no happiness in this world,

nor in the next. what is he then?

A confounded fool performing a watchman’s role” says Vardhaman.

The above phrase stresses on how immense wealth can perish when constantly exploited , whereas even moderate wealth can magnify if added constantly. From the collection of the oldest known indian tales, Visnu Sarma’s ‘The Panchatantra’ (200 BC) also known as ‘The Five Treatises’ in english.

When your brain retrieves a half forgotten memory, it is working very hard and so when you review your work , you are making very strong connections. .. .. The dendrites are right there… Some connections have faded, but when they come back on, they will be much much stronger.” Khurshed Batliwala and Dinesh Godke’s book for students ‘Ready Study Go’
