Emotional intelligence is the state of complete interpretation of feelings. Using this analysis to improve activities or meet goals/objectives.
As a first instance we must know our mind and how it works.
Emotions are processed in the central nervous system. Accordingly, there is a close relationship between the nervous system and the limbic system. This relationship is created in the regulation of emotions through neurotransmitters.
This system regulates the responses in our body to emotional stimuli.
1. Identify situations and create a natural reflex to them
To create reflexes that fight these (sometimes malicious) emotions. We must present a calm mental environment and accept that these emotions exist. Whatever the feeling is, we must control it and give our “thinking system” these emotions in the form of structured data. In this way, we will achieve an interpretation of this information to direct it in a direction that favors what we want to do or are doing.
2. Create a mental environment for better “Emotional Intelligence”
Aditionally, we must create a mental environment that helps us to channel these emotions whatever they are and interpret them correctly. Sometimes our positive emotions overshadow the possibilities of failure. Actually, when this happens we feel bad for not having foreseen it or for increasing this feeling of success. And we realize that in the end it was not what we thought. Hence, that is why we must control any thought, whether positive or negative, in order to make rational decisions that benefit the final result.
3. Think about things long enough to feel safe (thats not good for a healthy mind)
We will never know concretely if our decisions are right, but we must accept the risk and determine our thoughts in favor of positive action. Analyzing risks, visualizing the end result or even thinking about the worst case.
This will help us determine our mind in such a way that we can develop a “mental environment” (mentioned above). Calm our emotions and bring out the rational side of our thoughts.
When we refer to “the worst case”, it is not a lack of self-confidence. It is premeditating the possibilities of something coming out different from what we want.
4. You must project positive emotions
Positive emotions help us think better about things and achieve the goal in a way that we feel confident about what we are doing. Subsequently, negative emotions such as sadness, hatred, resentment or envy, determine our thoughts with insecurities and lack of confidence. This is why the importance of maintaining a constant positive state is vital to success in any area of life. However, difficult times will always be there. With this in mind, we must accept that fate and act accordingly. The emotional intelligence is the key to be happy and rational.
