Emotional Intelligence 1.0

People are not their behaviours. A person's behaviour can change from time to time not necessarily as a result of an inconsistent character on his/her part but largely due to an altered state of mind.

You'd react differently if someone scratched your car after you just received news that you won a N350million contract, than you would if you just heard news that you lost your job!

Happiness, anger, joy, sorrow, excitement, depression, passion, tiredness, stress, boredom etc are all various states or emotions we've experienced at one time or another.

Be careful of what state of mind you're in before taking a decision. Never make a promise when you're excited, never make a statement when you're angry.

Observe the H.A.L.T. sign. When you're Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired, you're in the danger zone and at your most unresourceful state. Proceed with caution.

Acting impulsively today can only lead to regret tomorrow. Managing your own emotions is the true freedom we humans have over animals.
