Emotional Intelligence Explained
Welcome everybody – today we are talking about this idea of Emotional Intelligence, what it is and how it can help you, can you develop it.
You’ve probably heard the term “Emotional Intelligence” before.
But…do you know what the heck it really is?
I’ve talked a lot about emotional strength and becoming a more emotionally strong leader.
I’ve talked about people pleasing and the lies we believe, that we tell ourselves.
And today I wanted to show you how all that fits into this “emotional intelligence” framework that’s becoming popular.
So I want to ask you: Are you able to detect your feelings and emotions when they start to get carried away?
When they start to drift toward the deep end of the emotional bellcurve?
How about other peoples emotions? (Yikes!)
Are you able to differentiate and process through all those feelings and emotions so that they can actually give you a framework moving forward for your actions and thinking?
If you’re like most folks, this is a big fat NO!
In fact, your eyes may have glazed over while I said that.
Let me ask it in another way:
Do you allow people’s actions to effect the way you live?
Do the actions of others stress you out?
Are you able to make decisions easily?
Do you wake up depressed some times?
Do you feel stuck?
Well, these questions are basically interpretations of the definitions I saw of emotional intelligence and todays show tries to explain it and give you a guide for developing yours.
