Emotional Intelligence & Profitability cont. 3 – Understand

In our last discussion we started by mentioning the importance of recognizing emotions in this section I would like to emphasize the   importance of understanding where these emotions come from.

We can only manage something effectively when we have a clear understanding of its origin. In my training’s and in one on one sessions it has often surprised me how different peoples opinion about the origin of emotions are.

  • From my heartsharing_thoughts_anim_150_clr_13979
  • From my environment
  • From inside
  • From other people
  • From the past
  • From my thoughts

I tend to believe that the true origin is the last point i.e. your thoughts. As I mentioned in the previous post this sounds very simple, but is really is not. The complexity comes from the areas that influence your thoughts.

WE WILL TACKLE THAT WHEN WE BLOG AGAIN….
