The 4 Components of Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Self-Awareness
Knowing your feelings
in the moment. Self-awareness of one's own feelings
as they occur is the FOUNDATION of emotional
intelligence and is FUNDAMENTAL to effective
decision making.
. Emotional Self-Management:
Managing strong feelings.
Emotional self-management enables people to make wise choices despite the pull of powerful emotions. People who excel at this skill avoid making critical decisions during times of high drama.
Relationship Management:

Handling Emotions in relationships with skill and harmony.
The art of relationships depends, in large part upon the skill of managing emotions in others.
Emotional self-awareness helps
you deal effectively with feelings of being overwhelmed instead of using television (or some other distraction) as a temporary escape.
Example #1:

Emotional self-management helps you resist dropping an important class simply because you got angry at the teacher.
Example #2:
It also helps you make a choice that offers delayed benefits like writing a term paper in place of a choice that promises instant gratification like going to a party.
Social Awareness:

Empathizing accurately with other people's emotions. Empathy is the fundamental "people skill." Those with empathy and compassion are more attuned to the social signals that reveal what others need or want.

Social awareness helps you notice and offer comfort when someone is consumed by anxiety or sadness.
Relationship management helps a person resist saying something that might publicly embarrass someone else. People who excel at skills such as listening, resolving conflicts, cooperating, and articulating the pulse of a group do well at anything that relies on interacting smoothly with others.
Knowing Your Own Emotions
What Happens
When Stress Persists?
Ongoing stress is bad news for our health, damaging almost every bodily system.
Unhealthy Stress Reduction
When stressed , victims' greatest concern is escaping the discomfort as fast as possible.
Healthy Stress Reduction
Creators find a better way to reduce stress. They realize that managing emotions intelligently means making wise choices that release the grip of stress, not just mask it.
Self-Love is the core belief that
It's the unwavering trust that, no matter what, I will always love myself and others will love me as well.
Self-love is vital to success. It empowers us to make wise, self supporting choices instead of impulsive, self destructive ones. These wise choices create a rich full life of outer achievement and inner happiness.
Design a
Self-Care Plan
If we felt unloved as children, we may need to learn how to love ourselves as adults and do so without confusing self-love with egotism, arrogance, or self-righteousness.
Nurturing yourself can begin today with a conscious self-care plan . As you consider the following options for nurturing yourself, look for choices you could adopt to increase your self love. The 3 ways to nurture oneself is...
1. Nurturing Yourself Physically
People who love themselves make wise choices to nurture their bodies for a long and healthy time.
2. Nurture Yourself Mentally
How you talk to yourself, especially when you're off course will greatly influence your sense of self-love. Whenever your Inner Critic begins to condemn you, stop. Replace these negative judgements with positive, supportive comments.
3. Nurture yourself Emotionally
The times you need self-love the most are often the times you feel self-love the least . Deep self-love is the ongoing inner approval of who you are, regardless of your accomplishments. You are not your results. When you learn to love yourself even when you're off course and struggling , your belief in yourself will soar.
Creating worldly success is meaningless if I am unhappy. That means I must accept responsibility for creating the quality of not only my outcomes but also my inner experiences.
"I create my own happiness and peace of mind."
Demonstrate emotional intelligence, using feelings as a compass for staying on course to their goals and dreams.
Effectively reduce stress, managing and soothing emotions of upset such as anger, fear, and sadness.
Create flow, feeling fully and positively engaged in college and the rest of their lives.
Allow themselves to be hijacked by emotions, making unwise choices that get them off course.
Take no responsibility for managing their emotions, instead acting irrationally on impulses of the moment.
Frequently experience boredom or anxiety in their lives
Life can present us with a rough road now and then. How we handle these experiences is critical to the outcomes and experiences of our lives.
Emotional Intelligence
