Hello Everyone! You must remember the power of three or more options whenever you have stress, upset, anxiety, or conflict. Multiple options will calm you down and help you to think clearly to resolve the issue.

Create Multiple Options: The Most Powerful Key to Resolving Conflict and Engaging Recovery
When people are in any type of stressful situation or conflict, they become anxious and polarize i.e. think in TWO OPTIONS: right/wrong, good/bad, success/failure, all/nothing, ally/enemy, together/apart, win/lose, etc.
When people polarize, they are stuck – usually fixated and obsessing on the negative of the two options: the bad, the loss, the failure, the wrong… which grinds any potential progress or resolution to a halt.
The result? Constant fear, worry, anxiety, anger, suspicion, and conflict. You can see this behavior often in issues surrounding unions and management, religions, divorces, parenting, political parties, lawsuits, and government.
What to do? In every situation, CREATE MULTIPLE OPTIONS – Minimum 3! It is amazing how powerful three options can be in any situation that might be problematic.
Example: You are about to close an important sales deal with a client. You name your price and your client balks. Your client wants the “hamburger” but not at your price. It is looking like a lost cause. He pays your price or you walk. It is rapidly becoming an all or nothing situation.
To break the deadlock, try changing your strategy: Offer him three options: “hamburger, cheeseburger, or cheeseburger with fries,” three options, three price points.
Set in the context of the magic third option, you will be amazed how reasonable the original hamburger option now appears to your client. And what’s even better… he is now even considering the “cheeseburger with fries.”
The message is simple: In every conflict situation, CREATE MULTIPLE OPTIONS – MINIMUM 3! It works!
