There’s something you might not know about me: I love to negotiate. That may come as a surprise, since I’m a self-help author and spiritual teacher — and most folks don’t think of negotiating as spiritual at all. I’m going to bust that myth today. For me, negotiating is about seeking creative ways for everyone to win. I experience negotiating as an awesome opportunity to honor my worth and confidently ask for what I want. Negotiating is fun for me because I can work with others to co-create a solution of the highest good for all. Negotiating is a spiritual practice.

I didn’t always love to negotiate. In fact, I used to suck at it! I spent the first five years of my career as an entrepreneur who was totally uncomfortable with asking for what I wanted. It wasn’t until I met my now husband that I learned the art of negotiating. My brilliant husband, Zach, is a kick-ass negotiator. He does it with style, grace and kindness. People don’t even realize that he’s negotiating because he’s so easygoing and lovely to work with. You too can negotiate with confidence and ease thanks to Zach’s insights! In this video I share the #1 tool for negotiating. I call it “spiritual negotiating” because I sincerely believe that it’s a spiritual practice.

  1. Thanks Gabby – I need to be reminded of these techniques every now and then to stay on track. Thank you for always sharing great tid bits. Helps me tremendously to take a few minutes away from my desk to watch to your videos:)

  2. I’m a brand new, young, college professor (I’m 26 an I’ve been teaching for one week and one day!) and although I can’t explicitly teach your lessons, I’ve been inspired to bring the spirit of your teachings to my classroom to uplift my students and grow them into beautiful, confident writers and students. My goal is to be the light for them. I think I’ll start using this phrase to draw out some of my more quiet students and to suggest different/new ideas and interpretations of texts in a positive, affirmative way.

    Thank you for being a ray of sunshine in my life!

  3. Hi Gabby!

    I’m 2 years into my job and am ready for the next step, whether it be a promotion or being rotated to a new account. How do I go about “negotiating” with my bosses to get this happen. I feel like I’m falling into the category of I’m not worthy enough and need some guidance to bring my highest self to the conversation and the work place.

    Much Love!

    1. don’t be afraid to ask. when you begin with gratitude and then ask for what you want – whatever is of the highest good will come forth

  4. For the past week or so it was on my mind to talk to my manager about moving up in the company; and I had decided monday would be the day – and then I happened to see this video right before I went to work! So the timing was just perfect:) Thank you <3 (posting this a little late, but thought id share anyway!).

  5. Hello Gabby,

    I recently started reading your articles and they are all awesome!!! But I am also a bit overwhelmed. I do not know where to start with the four books and the articles here. Where would you suggest I start?

    Thanks!! 🙂

  6. I have negotiated what I want and I will get what I had negotiated and manifested; however, I have to wait. What is the purpose behind waiting for something you negotiated? I ask this because I have waited so long for this and now that it is at the tip of my fingers, I have to wait a little longer and that just confuses me.
