Emotional Intelligence

16 Oct 2016   Shanti Gowans

There are over 3,000 words to describe feelings in the English language! Emotional Intelligence is using your intelligence to handle your feelings and their circumstances graciously and skillfully.

Here are six key questions that are fundamental to your life and happiness:

1. What am I feeling right now?

2. What outcome do I want in this situation?

3. What can I do now to create the outcome I desire?

4. How can I get back on a course that will bring satisfaction and success?

5. How can I handle difficult situations with calm and maintain equanimity?

6. How can I learn to gracefully cope with an ever-changing environment?

In asking yourself these six questions regularly, you can use them to connect with the world compassionately.

Do you have a strong “inner GPS” of emotional Intelligence that helps you to navigate the world of emotions in yourself, and connect with others with empathy and compassion?

Here are some pointers to work with: motional Intelligence for a Compassionate World, 

• Identify your feelings as pleasant, unpleasant, neutral.
  Convert the unpleasant to neutral, and the neutral to pleasant.
• Increase your sense of well-being. Go to your breath.

• Enhance your relationships by using emotional intelligence to build a compassionate world.

• Build your capacity to be empathetic and compassionate.
