“Each of us makes his own weather, determines the color of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits.”

EI Quote: Listen

Emotional Intelligence Quote
“If you want to change the way people respond to you, change the way you respond to people.”
- Timothy Leary

Tip/Reminder
Listen to make the other person feel heard and understood — not simply to try to make your point.  Use the Intuitive Listening® technique to demonstrate to people at work and home that you have both an open ear and open heart.

Don’t Interrupt, Appreciate, Listen for Meaning, Verify the Essence

EI Quote: Create Positive Energy

February 28th, 2014  / Author: Byron Stock

Emotional Intelligence Quote
“When you catch people complaining this week, simply say to them, ‘Stop.’ Learn to use your voice to halt people’s energy when they are giving you their complaints. If you listen to people gripe, if you listen to their negativity, you are putting yourself in a position of being affected by their lower energy. Refocus them on the positive and you will be doing the same for your own energy.”
- Sanaya Roman, in Living with Joy

 

Tip/Reminder
Use the Heart Mapping® technique to get yours and others’ best ideas down on paper.  This is a great way to stop the complaining and negativity.  Heart Mapping is a great way to get positive energy flowing.

Mind map first, then use Freeze-Frame® technique to create a Heart Map.

Emotional Intelligence Quote
“Do something wonderful today – people may imitate it.”

- Norman Vincent Peale
