It is impossible for me to tell you how many times I have heard the expression, “You get what you deserve.” It is an expression that is damaging to your psyche, causing most people, perhaps, even you, to succumb to self-flagellation.
However, if you re-phrase it to, “You get what you negotiate,” suddenly, it becomes a phrase of encouragement to negotiate, rather than one that blames you for failing.
What will help you get better or more capable.
Follow that slogan.
