How Heart Smart Are You?
Heart Based Emotional
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupery
What is Heart Based Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence or E.Q.(Emotional Quotient), is considered as our Street smart ability: Our capacity to tune in to, manage and direct our feelings in positive, creative and supportive ways to achieve success and happiness.
In 1996 DanialGoleman’s landmark book ‘Emotional Intelligence’ convincingly proposed that our emotions (not our cognitive skills) affect our level of relationship satisfaction, health and happiness and effectiveness in life. “What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definable set of emotional skills - your E.Q. - not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional I.Q. tests.”
Latest scientific research is demonstrating that when the heart and mind are in harmony we function at our best: we feel peace, perform at our peak, relate better to others and experience optimal health. By gaining access to ‘heart wisdom’ we can acquire valuable solutions that the mind would not consider.
A whole new world...
The most exciting thing about Emotional Intelligence is that it opens a doorway to a whole new world. When we experience our world through our feelings we understand more clearly why we think the way we do, why we act the way we do and why get the results we get. It opens us to more inner peace, love, happiness and gratitude for being alive.
