Emotional Intelligence:

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

You think you have been unlucky in love, you don't get the job you deserve, you don't have friends, your sales don't go up, you have been a victim of everyone, you are not happy .....

If you learn to know your feelings and not be afraid of them, your relationships with others will be easier and fuller. And you will be happier!

Key words:

  • Self-knowledge,

  • Emotion management and

  • Communication

To have a fulfilling life you need emotional intelligence as much or more than an intellectual quotient or luck.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to manage your emotions and to understand those of others. It is the opposite of what our culture establishes.

"If you cry in front of others, you are weak", "If you tell your partner that you love him/her, you will lose him/her", "If you are kind, it is because you want something" ......

The fact of hiding our emotions has been interpreted as self-control, valued as inner strength or social control.....

However, those who have a good knowledge and control of their emotions, manage better self-esteem, can interrelate better with people, get the best out of each relationship, have a more serene and satisfactory life and make better use of their mental, emotional and social resources.

While it is true that we all have some degree of emotional intelligence, today I will share with you valuable skills to recognize feelings:

Value your emotions or self-awareness well: learn to define emotions well, don't confuse anger with hate, shame and pride, love and desire. Value their strength and influence. "Do not allow yourself to be dominated by these negative emotions".

Understand what others feel: empathy helps to live more harmoniously and to smoothen out conflicts. "Knowing what the other person feels, helps you to the solution".

Master emotionality or self-regulation: do not get carried away by negative feelings, such as fear or guilt, recognize the power it has on you and give them their exact worth. "Don't react."

Empower positive feelings and self-motivate yourself: a positive mind generates satisfaction, gratitude, harmony, happiness. "The decision to be happy is yours."

Learn to apologize: sometimes we hurt others, without assuming our responsibilities, leaving scars and with it we erode our relationships. "Accepting our faults, helps to lower the tension in the conflict".

By managing these skills, you will find benefits in:

  • Achieving positive changes in the environment.

  • Adapt better to changes.

  • You will gain more confidence and self-confidence.

  • Emotional control and self-motivation to achieve your goals.

  • Better understanding others, managing relationships, and having the power to influence.
