What is emotional intelligence?
Let me explain…
A short story, uh Ooh!!
Emotional intelligence (EI) is precisely one’s ability to observe, control, and assess our emotions. “This is a harrowing time” is an understatement and as a collective we are experiencing a massive upheaval to our lives.
So, without too much focus on the current set of circumstances worldwide (can’t escape anyway!!), I would like to bring attention to what we can control by the way we think and feel about it all.
When we assess our thinking and attempt to show up right here, right now as our best selves, we seem to navigate situations better. I know, I know easier said than done, right?!
This modern-day environment has placed new demands on us individually and collectively. Nevertheless, when you have the ability to guide behavior according to how you feel about a situation, you can better understand the meaning.
This understanding of your feelings, in turn, helps in analyzing and understanding the biased, unbiased, and personal perspectives.
Emotional intelligence will hold this whole operation together.
Holy Dilemma, Batman! Issues Schimmues.
Our lives going forward will be about growing through this change and redirection. Can you feel it?
To be emotionally intelligent will demand participation in one manner or another. Why make the personal lesson more difficult than needed?!
Your crisis management will only be successful by choosing to be active with it, not a passive participant in a process we had no choice. We individually can only control our right NOW.
Yessiree, believe me, at the end of the day, you are the only one who can create a new reality and change history…your own. In life, there are no wrong paths, choices, or decisions. Every venture will contribute to the expansion and growth of the soul.
Hit it and Beast it Out!
I know, the time now is so very F*cked up, and it really isn’t.
A special kind of crazy, our emotional intelligence.
If viewed through a lens of emotional intelligence, this is a moment in time for soul growth. Yes, this time is painful, but so is growth in all its forms. If we ever wondered why it seems that making headway through change is slow and a lot of work, it’s because it IS!
I will say this about change…. gain a love of it or at least a healthy appreciation for it and embrace it. Sheer resistance, rebellion, and pride at this moment or any time, plain and simple, is madness for you and others around you. Our new reality may not be much different than the old reality.
Pose this question …. “what is it you pretend you know?” And then ask and hopefully, your answer will be…. I know nothing. When we make a clear admission, we allow ourselves to discover.
Here’s an opportunity to exercise and develop emotional muscles to live well moving forward, and be a more compassionate human-being for self and others.
The new “NOW” condition.
Enter through the BIG DOOR to a power greater than self.
Now is optimal to make a new intention to support and allow yourself personal discovery. The point is to have a healthy internal dialogue to live “our” whys and manage change.
Emotional intelligence is a critical component, particularly how one will deal with challenges and change. Remember, where there is presence, there is faith. You don’t lose when you attempt to rise above in spite of the external circumstances.
Emotional intelligence then becomes a benefit to self and all. When we are open, willing, and flexible, we face life challenges with a new emotionally intelligent definition, and reinvent what we want to see and show up in LIFE especially in this new “normal!”.
Don’t lie to yourself. Be willing to evolve to a better self in every season.
This is how we do it!
