How to Become Emotionally Intelligent in Six Simple Steps

Emotional Intelligent allows individuals to access their Emotional Clarity, Balance and True Capacity.  EQ is one of the important personal and social skills a person can learn.  It permits the user to develop a sense of self that is mindful, positive and cognitively connected.

A person having high EQ has a 70% higher chance of personal and social success than someone relying on IQ alone.

And EQ is trainable.  We will realize that knowing “what to do” or “how to do”, is never as important as, knowing “why to do”.

That’s where The Daily Six and John Chappelear help with the integration of EQ and IQ.

Why is it today that people think emotions are old fashion and that intellect is all we need?

Today, to achieve high levels of success personally or professionally we need both.

The skill sets that allow us to succeed in an ever technological world and also the skills that allow us to build teams, tribes, departments, divisions and organizations which succeed based on the commitment they make to the success of each other.

A person’s core emotional well-being falls into one of two mindsets: a closed mindset or an open mindset.  These directly relate to our levels of Intellectual Intelligent (I.Q.) and Emotional Intelligent (E.Q.).  With a closed mindset, you believe you are who you are and you cannot change. This creates problems when you’re challenged because anything that appears to be more than you can handle is bound to make you feel hopeless and overwhelmed.

People with open mindsets believe that they can improve with effort. They outperform those with a closed mindset, even when they have a lower IQ, because they embrace challenges, treating them as opportunities to learn something new.


Common sense would suggest that having ability, like being smart, inspires confidence. It does, but only while the going is easy.

The true deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges (I.Q. vs. E.Q).

People with an open mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.

Failures and setbacks don’t have to be a bad thing; in fact, failure and setbacks provide helpful information. They show us how to do better next time.

Regardless of which side you fall on, you can make the changes necessary to develop an open mindset.

Emotional Intelligent helps better deal with growth and change.

We all hit moments when we feel helpless. The test is how we react to that feeling. We can either learn from it and move forward or let it drag us down.

When you are Emotionally Intelligent you:

Act Empowered
Empowered people pursue their passions relentlessly. There’s always going to be someone who’s more naturally talented than you are, but what you lack in talent, you can make up for in passion. Empowered people’s passion is what drives their unrelenting pursuit of excellence. Warren Buffet recommends finding your truest passions using something he calls the 5/25 technique: Write down the 25 things that you care about the most. Then, cross out the bottom 20. The remaining 5 are your true passions. Everything else is merely a distraction.

Take Continuous Action.
It’s not that people with an open mindset are able to overcome their fears because they are braver than the rest of us; it’s just that they know fear and anxiety are paralyzing emotions and that the best way to overcome this paralysis is to take action. People with a open mindset are empowered, and empowered people know that there’s no such thing as a truly perfect moment to move forward. So why wait for one? Taking action turns all your worry and concern about failure into positive, focused energy.


Remain Flexible.
Everyone encounters unanticipated adversity. People with an empowered, open-oriented mindset embrace adversity as a means for improvement, as opposed to something that holds them back. When an unexpected situation challenges an empowered person, they flex until they get results.
