Thrive with EQ

Master your Emotions, Master your Mind and Master your Life.

What is EQ (Emotional Intelligence)?

Feelings of anxiety, stress and depression can be overwhelming when trying to balance your life.

Competing demands, continuous pressure and never ending deadlines. Prioritizing and boundaries setting seem like mission impossible.

There is so much uncertainty and so much unknown which you don’t control. The only thing you control is how you think and behave when feelings of sadness, guilt, exhaustion, depletion, anger, fear, anxiety and stress are triggered.

The concept of emotional intelligence has brought new depth to understanding human intelligence; it enhanced the ability to evaluate one’s general or overall intelligence. Not unlike cognitive intelligence, however, emotional intelligence has been difficult to define.

Emotional intelligence addresses the emotional, personal, social, and survival dimensions of intelligence, which are often more important for daily functioning than the more traditional cognitive aspects of intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is concerned with understanding oneself and others, relating to people, and adapting to and coping with the immediate surroundings to be more successful in dealing with environmental demands. Emotional intelligence is tactical (immediate functioning), while cognitive intelligence is strategic (long-term capacity).

Emotional intelligence helps to predict success because it reflects how a person applies knowledge to the immediate situation. In a way, to measure emotional intelligence is to measure one’s “common sense” and ability to get along in the world.
