Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, understand, process and direct our emotions correctly. Before trying to guess other’s feelings and thoughts, it’s essential that we learn to recognize ours to know how to react to each situation and avoid the risk of depression, violence, eating disorders or drugs.

If we know how to manage our emotional intelligence, our professional performance and our family and affective relationships will be much more solid and lasting, as well as our relationship with emotional well-being, self-esteem, and positive mood. We’ll look at life with more optimism and happiness and we’ll focus on problem solutions.

It’s about discovering our talents or our abilities, in order to use them correctly.

In a word, we must learn to control our emotions, and prevent them from dominating us, in order to successfully fulfill each and every one of our objectives and goals.

Controlling yes, but discarding no; because without feelings, it’s not possible many times to make the best decision. The secret is then in finding the exact dose of reason and emotion.

People must understand with great clarity how much it can benefit us to be aware of our emotional intelligence. If we succeed, there’s no doubt that our contribution to our professional environment will be much more rewarding, and our human relationships on a personal level will achieve the harmony we so long for.

If you’re determined to take charge of your lives, work your emotional intelligence a lot and you won’t regret it!
