I went to see the “Rumble on the Water 2” fight at the Queen Mary in Long Beach CA this past weekend.  There were several fights on the schedule and the headliner was a Featherweight match between Tremaine Williams and William Gonzalez.  The fight was a 10 round fight.  However, it was done in just over a minute 30.  See the fight here.  The video is 14 minutes long.  It took longer for them to get to the ring then to actually fight.

What does this have to do with negotiation?  It has a lot to do with negotiation or anything else that you want to achieve with a successful result.  The key here is training.  If you watch the fight you will notice how focused and determined Tremaine Williams is during the entire fight.  At the end scroll over to his interview (about at the 11:50 mark) and listen to what he says was the key to winning the fight about preparing right and working hard.

That’s the key to any success in anything.  First you have to be focused on the goal, then you have to get the right coaching and training to make sure you are prepared to the best of your ability for whatever it is that you may want to achieve.

Alexander Graham Bell said “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”
