“Let’s not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it.”

EI Quote: Responsibility

June 18th, 2014  / Author: Byron Stock

Emotional Intelligence Quote
“Everything you do is based on choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period!”
- Jennifer Helbig

Tip/Reminder
The opposite of blaming is taking “response-ability.”  You can develop that competence by using the Freeze-Frame® technique to manage the fear and anxiety that comes with making hard choices.

EI Quote: Express Appreciation

Emotional Intelligence Quote
“To get the full value of joy you must have somebody to divide it with.”
- Mark Twain

Tip/Reminder
Expressing your appreciation is one way to share joy.  To express sincere appreciation you have to have it.  And when you give it to someone you usually get appreciation back.  I call that “a twofer.”

Specific What You Appreciate, Specific Why
