A Lack Off Emotional Intelligence Might Destroy Your Success
I cannot remember how I came across this thought, but it has been bothering me for quite some time. I watched a couple of Youtube videos to get a higher understanding on this subject.
There was times when I felt hopeless and just plainly depressed before discovering the effects of emotional intelligence.....
Emotional intelligence is the interaction between your emotional and logical brain.
Here are a couple of examples of how I experience this on a daily basis:
1. I fail everyday but I also win
Some of you might think that I say that I am a failure by saying this but let me explain to you what I mean. You can never be assured that you will rank for all of your keywords because some of the articles that I write are ranking while others are barely reaching the 4th page of Google.
Some articles are losers while others are making me money. The point is that the more articles you write, the more potential first page ranking you will get......
Emotionally I will feel like I have failed, but then my logical brain comes to the rescue and reminds me: "It is a game of numbers Viljoen so control yourself." Thanks brain.
2. My website is 3 months old and I do not make any money from it
I know this feeling just too well and I think that a lot of you can agree with me on this. This is the only thing that I hate about building a website and it is that moment when you log into your Google Analytics account with barely a couple of clicks.
This is frustrating especially if you have written your heart out for 3 months straight and now you even do not have the courage to turn on your computer.
My logical brain will then remind me about this:" Viljoen, you have created a couple of successful websites in the past so be patient you will get there"
If it was not for my logical brain, then I would have given up hope a long time ago. Sometimes you have to listen to your emotional brain with your one ear and your logical brain with your other ear.
This can also work wonders for breakups :)
