Do you want to become an expert in Emotional Quotient by just understanding a simple equation of it?
If yes, keep reading...
There are many things in this world which we can't accept it because of our perceptions, culture, environment, faith, trust and many more other reasons. In our daily life we came across with many problems, and many are of due to our EMOTIONS!
We have to manage our Emotions to live better, and for that we have to accept something which we can't accept and we have to reject something though we can't reject.
One has said very true, “Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”
Let see how you will be the master of Emotional Quotient. Read it and apply it!
When someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don't want it to be done and when we are not able to accept it, we become angry.
However, when someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don't want it to be done and we are able to accept it We remain tolerant.
When someone has something which we don't have, or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are not able to accept it we become jealous.
When someone has something which we don't have or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are able to accept it we get inspired.
When Someone is present in our thoughts, but if not physically present and we are not able to accept it We say 'I am missing you'.
When someone is present in our thoughts, but not physically present and we are able to accept it We say 'I am thinking of you'.
Then emotional equation is quite simple.
Something + Acceptance = Positive Emotion
Something + Non Acceptance = Negative Emotion
So, it is not 'Something' or 'someone' who is making us feel positive or negative, but it is our 'acceptance' or 'non acceptance' of something or someone, which is making us feel positive or negative.
It isn't the world but the quality of our response to the world (acceptance or non acceptance) that determines the quality of our emotions.
Next time we feel disturbed with a negative emotion, instead of asking who or what is disturbing us, we will examine who or what we are resisting (not accepting) that is causing this disturbance in us.
We will replace resistance (non acceptance) with acceptance, and the negative emotion will turn into a positive one.
Emotional management begins by stopping to blame that 'something' or 'someone' and starting
to take the responsibility to respond to life with 'acceptance'.
I'm sure you will be amazed by this equation! Hope you will do good in managing your emotions in future life.
Wish you a very happy life. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi! :)
