Harness Emotional Intelligence to Eliminate Obstacles in Life

Do you navigate challenges to succeed in life, or are you the obstacle preventing your success? In my book, The Power of Emotion, I discuss strategies to increase emotional intelligence and avoid becoming an obstacle in your way.


THE POWER OF EMOTION | CHAPTER 14 | OVERVIEW

Don’t  Be The Obstacle in Your Way in Life

Have you ever considered that you could be an obstacle in the way of your success?

Our emotions influence our decision-making if we allow them to.

Life is challenging at the best of times, especially during a pandemic. No matter how firm our resolve is, our thoughts can impact our emotions negatively, affecting our behaviour. I speak about this often because of the correlation between our feelings and emotional intelligence.

Emotions guide all we do, so we must learn to manage them to reduce obstacles in our life, including ourselves.

Learn how to manage your emotions effectively.

The fundamental rule I practice, and share is “never surrender to your emotions.” Instead, learn to manage them rather than them controlling you. I speak from personal experience when I emphasize this practice. In the past, there were too many examples of my inability to regulate my emotions. Before focusing on and investing in emotional intelligence training, I often struggled when dealing with emotional challenges. I talk about this vulnerability in my book.

As I became more emotionally aware, I better understood my feelings and could regulate my emotional triggers. This skill enabled me to stop my emotions from being hijacked or, at least, shortened the time they destabilized me.

Simple ways to avoid being an obstacle in your life:

There are many strategies to increase your emotional intelligence and stop your emotions from creating obstacles in your life.

Our self-improvement journey is ours, and it begins with:

  • Get to know what competes with your feelings.
  • Understand the power and control of your thoughts and emotions.
  • Become familiar with the role of your self-talk and internal voice.
  • Practise positive self-talk enforcement.

As our emotional intelligence improves, we become familiar with and are more competent in managing our emotions. In my book, The Power of Emotion, I demonstrate what a game-changer emotional intelligence is in eliminating obstacles in our life, including ourselves.
