Your Emotional Intelligence


Published on

Our emotions are not the result of external forces, rather a conscious reaction to life's circumstances. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, manage and understand our emotions and the emotions of those around us. Cultivating the ability to control our thoughts and feelings is done by simply coming to a quiet awareness of them, through techniques like meditation, where the mind is silenced and not flooded or overwhelmed.

Your Emotional Intelligence

  1. 1. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar Why Developing Your Emotional Intelligence Is Vital for Love, Peace And Joy In Life!
  2. 2. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar What is Emotional Intelligence? • We have an intelligence within us that empowers us to manage our own emotions. • We are a 100% responsible for how we feel and no one else.
  3. 3. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar • Our emotions are simply our own reactions to a given situation and not the doing of some external forces. • We essentially need to stop playing victim and begin to take responsibility for how we feel. • The ability to identify and manage our own emotions and to understand the emotions of people around us is emotional intelligence.
  4. 4. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar The first two stages have to do with understanding our behavior and ourselves. The last two stages underline the importance of understanding others and their behavior. This intelligence follows four stages: Self Awareness Self-Management Social Awareness Relationship Management
  5. 5. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar Success does not create happiness and love in life! There are many successful people, given that our idea of success is often determined in monitory terms, who lack love and are not happy at all. So if success does not create happiness and love, then what does?....Self awareness!
  6. 6. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar At the core of emotional intelligence is self-awareness. Adam smith once said that, "The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer." At the core of knowing 'thyself' is taking responsibility for all that you are and so if success does not create love and happiness in your life, then being responsible for your own love and happiness along emotional intelligence does.
  7. 7. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT What does it mean to be self-aware? • To be self-aware simply is to be conscious of your thoughts, attitudes, behav ior and emotions. • To have a clear understanding of all that makes you who you are and to be able to manage and control those feelings.
  8. 8. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar There is a rather simple way of managing these emotions. In a world system where every individual is over stimulated with thousands of bits of information flooding the mind, a path to gaining control over the mind is simply to come to a space of feeling safe and relaxed.
  9. 9. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar The concept of meditation, also known by many adjectives like contemplation, introspection, ruminati on or reflection, is simply bringing the mind to a relaxed altered state of awareness where things appear to make sense, where the mind is no longer flooded but is calm and observant of the very thoughts and emotions that are otherwise is overwhelming. To any form of meditation there are three common signals to the brain : 1) Close the eyes, 1) Focus on slow deep breaths 2) Relax all muscle tension in the body. With doing this comes a profound realization that one is responsible and has conscious control over his thoughts and feelings.
  10. 10. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar If we are responsible for how we feel, then why do we feel hurt? Blaming others for hurting us is simply like blaming someone for poking you in a place that was already bruised. It is not the poking alone that hurt, but it is simply poking at the bruise that hurts. Similarly, all of us are emotionally bruised as a result of our past circumstances, and when people poke at those places, we can either continue blaming the person saying they hurt us, or continue to get hurt on the same bruise, or just heal the bruise instead.
  11. 11. PERSONALITY SUCCESS BLUEPRINT Beejal Parmar Healing the bruise instead is taking responsibility for how you feel and dropping the idea that other people are responsible for your love and happiness. In conclusion, to be emotionally intelligent is to be self-aware, empowering ourselves and owning the responsibility for our own feelings of love and happiness instead of playing constant victim to the world outside us. Therefore, being emotionally intelligent will reveal to you real peace and happiness, as long as you choose to create it, because how you feel is how you decide to feel.
