    As you may have noticed between the manipulation, management, sales and other types of exposure, a very fine line. In this situation, it is very important to stay on the "razor blade", not a story on possible manipulation and not lose anything but also not to refuse the advantageous offers suspecting that you are being manipulated. For this you need to maintain conscious control over their emotions, to keep touch with reality and based on facts, and not to rush rashly to make decisions.

    the rule is when you're forced to make a quick decision to stop for 10 seconds and answer yourself the question: “What happens if I don't take the decision immediately?”.
