Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. But how do we know if we’re emotionally intelligent and can we change things if we’re not? Let’s get started.
Do you feel rich, secure and financially set?
Or do you worry about having enough for the day-to-day or retirement? Maybe you’ve even been told that you HAVE enough but you can’t rest into that thought.
It’s not about the extravagant purchases or how much you spend on a daily basis…this is about how you FEEL about your financial circumstances.
All too often when that flush of emotion arises, we make ourselves wrong for feeling it and get stuck in patterns of guilt and ‘stuffing down’ our anger. It’s an uncomfortable emotion that most people don’t like to experience or witness.
Active listening involves a way of listening and responding to the other person that improves overall understanding. This is a valuable technique that requires the listener to thoroughly absorb, understand, respond, and retain what’s being said.
We all need a little help sometimes, especially when it comes to journeys of self-discovery. Whether your goal is to be more confident or to find fulfillment, it can be pretty tough to figure out how to get from point A to point B.
We all have those experiences in our lives that change us. Those defining moments when we know that we’ve reached a pivot point and things will never again be as they were. These experiences that are forever marked by pain. The kind of pain that you hope is a dream that you’ll wake from.
People always say ‘love yourself’ which IS essential because every relationship we have, and our own happiness, depends on that love. But HOW do we do it…? How do we learn to love ourselves?
We say that we want change. We say that we want to grow. We say things like “I’ve forgiven” or “it’s not really a big deal to me anymore” because we want to be over it. We’re tired of having the same arguments. Tired of attracting the same toxic people into our lives. Tired of reliving the experiences and emotions that make up our history.
No one enjoys failing. That’s ok, it’s normal. But our fear of failure can be so strong that avoiding any risk of failure obscures the drive to succeed. What’s not ok is when your insecurity directs your behaviour and you subconsciously sabotage your chance for success.
Do you feel like an imposter, pretending to be someone you’re not? Like at any moment you’ll be found out? Like people will discover that you’re a fraud? And when they do, you’ll be discarded. Fired. Cast aside? That’s Imposter Syndrome.
When you’re a People-Pleaser it can be challenging to understand how to break this pattern of behaviour. The first step is to recognize the signs. While it can be challenging to see the reality of the situation, this list below should resonate with you if you’re a People-Pleaser.
You’re responsible for every choice you’ve made….and these choices have placed you exactly where you are.
Chances are, that if you’re reading this, you already understand the power that taking responsibility over your life holds.
