A high emotional intelligence is the key to a successful life. While IQ can predict to some degree academic performance and professional personal success, some of those with fabulous IQ scores often do poorly in life, wasting their potential by thinking, behaving and communicating in a way that hinder their chances of success. They lack in emotional intelligence.
Emotional awareness helps in understanding yourself and others too. There are thousands of emotions that influence our lives. It is time to just write it down in a diary. Keeping a track of your emotional intelligence is very important and that in turns helps you to keep a track of your emotional responses. Recognize how you feel during stressful days. Stress tires you down or does it just make you feel low. Sometimes stress does make a person angry and short tempered. Know how to control stress by doing things that helps you to distress.
Be positive in life. Only focus on the present. You can’t undo what has happened in the past by simply repenting. You don’t have control over your future. It is the present situation that you have control over so concentrate only in that. End conflicts that can be resolved.
Use humour to deal with the hurdles of life. Be in the company of people who make you feel happy, precious and wanted. A good laughter with a dear friend will help you to take you out of depression and bring your life in balance. For having a happy, contended and successful life it is important that you gain your wisdoms through experiences.
