Why are some people more successful than others? Why do those deemed intellectually intelligent just drift in life and waste away their potential, while those who are not academically superior turn out to be bigwigs with considerable power and influence in their work and personal life?
Apparently, intellectual intelligence is not the only indicator for personal success. Not all who are genius or have superior IQ can be successful in this life. Emotions, volitions, intuitions and perceptions give a bigger picture to how well you can achieve goals and attain success.
People with high emotional intelligence possess a wide range of abilities, including social skills, emotional skills and intellectual skills that all combine in exactly the way required to make them stronger persons. They possess the skills needed to overcome setbacks and failures. They possess the sensitivity to manage and express emotions to nurture healthy relationships. In short, they have what it takes to make it big in this life.
Emotional intelligence, EI or EIQ as it is otherwise known, is the ability to recognize other people’s feelings and difficulties. Further to identifying and understanding the emotions and difficulties, EQ also provides the competency to be able to act accordingly to overcome the problem and meet the goal.
At the workplace, EQ is what leads you to give superior job performance. In life, EQ is what drives you to become an achiever. In love and relationships, EQ is what makes you open-minded, approachable, thoughtful and sympathetic to acquaintances, friends and love ones.
