No one will doubt we’re collectively experiencing a topsy-turvy world.
Living with uncertainty has become the new norm. Adaptation is rapidly emerging into the new imperative.
It’s easy to hide under our proverbial covers, longing for a return to the predictable “old days” we once knew.
Yet while many are feeling daunted by the unknown, there is another way. These current times are providing a rare opportunity to reflect, reevaluate and approach each coming day with a fresher and more hopeful perspective.
Growing Our Emotional Intelligence
Unlike an I.Q. that measures our intellect, we can now seek to develop our emotional intelligence or E.Q. as well. There’s no special academic degree given on this journey, but the personal growth it brings satisfies many facets of our soul and spirit.
Developing our Emotional Intelligence calls upon a completely different part of our nature — and our being. We embark on a path to grow inwardly by reflecting upon values, passions and desires and maturing our relationships with self and others.
Growing in Emotional Intelligence involves becoming more true to ourselves. The process beckons us to become more authentic: to take chances, confront old fears, step out of the shadows and stand up on our own terms.
A New World
At this juncture in time and space, each of us is suddenly afforded a unique opportunity.
We can answer the call to consider how we can show up and help create a new future and a new society. What does it look like? More importantly, who shall we be in the world ahead?
Never underestimate the power of YOU. Yes, YOU. You are an integral piece of the larger public cosmos that will help shape things to come . . . or not.
Podcasts to Help You Along the Way
It is with emotional growth in mind that I offer three podcasts, each providing a different perspective to help you in your own path to Emotional Intelligence, Peace and Personal Power.
The first is a recent interview I sat in on with host Ronica Jacobs where we discuss Emotional Intelligence, a Growth Mindset and Personal Leadership.
