AYM (Awaken Your Mind)
Eyes are useless when our mind is blind. Mind is blind when a son cannot read disappointment in eyes of parents. Mind is blind when a husband cannot read the heart of wife or vice versa. Mind is blind when a boss cannot read expectations of a subordinate. Mind is blind when teacher cannot read mind of a student. Mind is blind when a friend cannot read body language of another friend. You may be extra ordinary intelligent but your mind is blind when you are emotionally dumb.
To differentiate between IQ and EQ read my another blog at-Most of the problems in our life are because neither have we understood our own feelings nor we understand and care for feeling of others. We become so overwhelmed by our own desires and greed that we just cannot see what others are going through. We never try to step into the shoes of others and see from their point of view. Everyone has their own world, thoughts and circumstances. Everyone see the things from their own point of view but great people are those who can peep into the mind, heart and thoughts of others and act accordingly. For that, one need to be alert and conscious all the time while interacting with others.
5 Tips to awaken your emotional intelligence:
- Whenever you are not alone, be alert and conscious and give full attention to your surroundings.
- Try to read and listen unspoken words and unexpressed thoughts. It requires practice but it’s not difficult.
- In case you are doubtful about your assessment, simply ask others and clarify your thoughts.
- If it is not inconvenient or harmful to your personal interest, try to act according to others wishes. You will be able to develop fruitful and long lasting relationship.
- Be genuine in your attitude and behavior. If you are honest in your behavior, people do not mind forgiving your blindness of mind.
