Emotional Intelligence - 4 Techniques To Help You Live A Better Life!

Jan 20, 2008
The idea of emotional intelligence is a fairly new one to the realm of education and learning processes. Emotional intelligence, when recognized and applied can turn your world around. In olden days, psychologists declared that IQ levels were the only factor that determined a person's success or failure for that matter, in life. However, studies on emotional intelligence tell us that emotions play as important a part, if not greater than IQ levels in your success or failure.

Emotional intelligence encourages us to recognize the emotional states of mind of others around us, and our own as well. When tapped to perfection, this can help us relate better with other people as well as with our selves. This increases success levels by miles.

A person who lacks emotional intelligence finds himself with an empty feeling, and resorts to various courses and counselors to help him cope with his emptiness. However, a course or book material can only give you so much teaching. Life itself is the greatest teacher, and while some have an inborn talent to cope well with life and with people, others can focus their attention on these issues to live a more successful life. This article deals with some of the ways you can increase your emotional intelligence levels. This of course will help you deal better with your self as well as with those around you.

1) Emotional Literacy - Like everything else you recognize, you need to give a name to every emotion that you can feel. This helps you recognize them even better, and thereby helps you control them as well. You'd be surprised on the effects this can have on your state of mind.

2) Use Emotional Energy - Everybody feels angry at times, anger is a common emotion. Rather than try and suppress your anger, find ways to release it in a productive manner. Anger produces energy, and this can be used positively or negatively that-s up to you. Never feed the anger, burn it up doing something useful.

3) Be selective with people - when you relate with the right people your mind will remain in a healthy state. If you go around with people who do not care about other people-s emotions some of that could rub off on you. People who do not care about their own emotions can never care about your emotions.

4) Do not blame other people for your state of mind. True, some people are good at getting you down, but your emotional state is finally under your control and if it isn't it should get that way. If you let people run your life, you will never have a life that you can be proud of.
