Critic of The Power of a Positive No - We are all influenced by our human nature. Indeed, very often, our natural traits affect more than we would the decisions we think we make rationally.

On the contrary, when they strongly desire a positive outcome to an exciting or a challenging negotiation, they might yield to any agreement, just to close the deal....   [tags: william ury, positive yes, negotiations]

The Negative and Positive Outcomes of Fear - Is fear a shoulder angel. Or is it a shoulder devil. The answer is both. Fear dictates our choices, but when we take the fears within us and decide their true meaning, we can conclude which kind of outcome they will make and dodge our unnecessary thoughts. Fear affects us in negative ad positive ways that control every decision we make, but its power is limited to our reaction and whether our fear is negative or positive. Negative fears are mostly caused by reflecting on things that have happened and then using that knowledge to come to realization of the fear in a current situation....   [tags: choices, thoughts, reaction] 559 words
