Let me ask you this, have you ever heard of the phrase, “There’s power in your mouth”? It sounds crazy, but I’m here to tell you today how true that is. Now, don’t lie. Me and you both have our moments where we talk down upon ourselves. Whether it’s about our work, the way we dress, our physical appearance, comparison to others, anything. The things that we speak into the atmosphere are valuable and should never be filled with negativity. This is truly a bad habit that should be broken! Don’t get me wrong, there are times where it could be very hard. However, it’s possible. It’s very important to self-reflect and to be aware of the bad thoughts and negative comments that consuming our lives. It’s important to be your absolute best self, let the past go, and build your confidence through the roof.
Where do you start you may ask? Well, allow me to inform you! It is proven that people with higher emotional intelligence are better leaders and can achieve higher goals.
Emotional Intelligence can be measured in 3 different skills. With knowing what the skills are, you can be working towards them to make sure you get great results.
The 3 skills are:
This is controlling or redirecting disruptive impulses and moods. Be the person who walks into a room with high energy and makes everyone around them feel great. You also want to be trusted and seen to have true integrity. Be responsible, always, for the energy that you bring.
There’s a big difference between people who are motivated to achieve and people who are motivated for external factors. When you’re motivated in a way that brings about emotional intelligence, you’re very optimistic even in the face of failure and are always looking for new ways to learn.
This is knowing your own strengths, weaknesses, drives, values and impact on others. Being self aware brings self confidence – you know all areas of yourself and you accept who you are.
So, my challenge for you this week is to dive into this and see where you can strengthen
your emotional intelligence.
Remember, to achieve great things, you need to be great.
