“If the pace and the push, the noise and the crowds are getting to you, it’s time to stop the nonsense and find a place of solace to refresh your spirit.”
– Charles R. Swindoll

Tip/Reminder
Emotional Self-Awareness is the first emotional intelligence competency that you must develop. By asking yourself, “What Am I Feeling Right Now?” you provide yourself with information whether to stay with that emotion or to use the Freeze-Frame® technique to transform into positive, productive emotions.

EI Quote: Positive Energy

May 27th, 2015  / Author: Byron Stock

hq053115Emotional Intelligence Quote
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tip/Reminder
How to silence the nay-sayers?  Get them involved in helping to create a Heart Map® about the problem or issue under consideration. That way all of the potential problems get identified and addressed and the energy stays positive and productive about solutions.

Mind Map, Freeze-Frame®, Heart Map
