Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have an unlimited amount of success in both their personal and professional lives? It could be because they possess high emotional intelligence.
According to Psychology Today, "Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others." This usually involves:
emotional awareness, which includes the ability to identify your own emotions as well as those of others;the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks such as problem solving;the ability to manage your emotions, such as being able to calm down when you're upset.
