EQ matters more than IQ in today's world, so what do you do for an optimal emotional intelligence?
As we know that emotional quotient matters more than intelligence quotient, what do you do to keep yourself optimally emotionally intelligent?
There is nothing you can really do to 'lift' your E.Q. You're either aware or you are not. You can either read people or you can't.
I think one of the biggest things we can do for emotional intelligence is self examination. It all starts there and so many people are uncomfortable with taking a close look at why they behave the way they do. If more people were brave enough to take the time to get still and try to know themselves, the areas we need to improve on or get help with would be a whole lot easier to define and recognize.
I purchased the book "Emotional Intelligence for Dummies". It really taught me a few things and there were a few tips to help me on the way.
I have become more aware of my reactions in recent years. Every time I get upset about something, I ask myself what it is that is bothering me. Usually, I'm being judgmental or there is some kind of limiting belief behind my reaction. I'm learning to be less judgmental about other people (very hard when it's a politician) and situations (impossible when Big Pharma sticks its poison in my face on TV). I'm also learning to let go my limiting beliefs one by one. It takes time and commitment (I use EFT) but it's worth it because that's the only way to work on personal growth, and I think that personal growth has everything to do with increasing your emotional intelligence. You can say any number of positive affirmations, but if you don't get rid of your limiting beliefs, affirmations don't get you anywhere.
