8 reasons why you should never compromise

1. Compromise is another word for mediocrity

Reaching agreements with other people is a valuable skill. To be able to negotiate and find common ground is demanding and rewarding. To reach solutions in which all parties feel satisfied, listened to and taken seriously is a major achievement.

2. Compromise isn’t about listening and learning from others, it’s about giving in

3. Compromise undermines our values

4. Compromise eats away at your self-respect, your passion and your soul

5. Compromise makes you inconsistent

6. Compromise is exhausting and depletes your health and energy

7. Compromise involves putting money before abundance

8. Compromise is not how you want to be remembered
