About this Quote

This quote by William James speaks with the power of mindset in dealing with disputes. It recommends that when we are in conflict with somebody, our attitude can make the distinction in between destructive our relationship and deepening it. This implies that if we approach the dispute with a favorable attitude, we can utilize it as an opportunity to enhance our relationship. On the other hand, if we approach the dispute with a negative attitude, it can cause additional damage to the relationship. For that reason, it is very important to be conscious of our mindset when in conflict with someone, as it can have a significant impact on the outcome.
