Sometimes, things go terribly wrong. Emotional intelligence helps us make mature decisions, get curious about what’s happening, and stay the course, even when sh*t hits the fan. Folks with high EQ are going to handle adversity with a high level of self-awareness and healthy self-management.
On the other hand, individuals with low EQ tend to be much less skilled when it comes to self-awareness and self-management. In a crisis, low EQ manifests as panic, despair, blame, and/or resistance to change.
Here's the good news: Emotional Intelligence is a skill set that can be learned and developed over time...for anyone!
If you're thinking something along the lines of, “F**k you, Jayme - of course I don’t like pain and when sh*t hits the fan, I want out as quickly as possible. That doesn’t mean I have low EQ,” this episode will be helpful to everyone, but especially anyone with this thought.
THE GOAL ISN’T TO DESIRE ADVERSITY. THE GOAL IS TO BE WILLING TO EXPERIENCE IT. So how do we get there? Tune into this episode for more!
