The sign of emotional intelligence is self-control. It is this manifest skill that vents productivity by not only keeping you determined and focused but also making you even more enthusiastic about your work. If you know how to bridle your emotions, you will have metal peace and stability which will help you getting an upper hand in the competition. A mere failure will never be able to drag such a person down because he knows that ultimately success lies in his capability to rise at the time of failure. Emotionally intelligent do not exhibit aggression, impatience, negativity or despondence.
1.They Don’t ask for Infallibility
For an emotionally intelligent person the word “perfection” has no existence and so they do not even work with the intention of becoming one. No one is infallible- Right? If you keep “perfection” as your target you will always contemplate over the dark side of things and will never be able to accomplish your dream of becoming successful. A sheer inclination towards the conviction of moving forward with zeal about what you have achieved so far and what you will accomplish in the future will not only make you positive but will also help you achieve success.
2.They do not succumb to Temptation
Anything glitters are not gold. An emotionally stable person will be aware of this conspicuous fact and will never reckon to suspend his work for any sought of temptation. A great wave of desire will always come in your path but ultimately it would be your decision whether you will be able to control yourself from getting tempted or not. Handsome is one who handsome does. So just restrain yourself by having the belief in the fact;
“If now you will not work for your dreams, you will have to work hard for someone else’s dream in future.”
So if you are ready to give up your dream for a trivial pleasure or temptation, you will be induced to work for someone in future. Either be a master of your own life or let the master rule your life. The choice is yours.
3.They Strategize their Work
An impulsive person can never have success. A person who is prone to self-control, rather than to impulse, will always pay heed to the strategies. An emotionally intelligent person will always give his strategies an opportunity to work so that he does achieve the ladders of success he has been dreaming for such a long period of time.
4 No what ifs
What if statements always aggravate the situation? To put in other words, it throws fuel on the fire of stress and despondency. Rather than worrying about what cannot happen, they simply think about the possibilities so that they do not take much time to take the plunge to rectify the situation. Strategic thinking is what an emotional person would think of.
