You can't change what is going on around you, until you change what is going on within you!
So, I know you probably wish I had written 7 steps to everything I want without having to DO any work on ME... but here is the thing, it is ALL about YOU. It is all about what is going on inside of you. As a society we have a massive OUTSIDE | IN v INSIDE | OUT issue....
What do I mean by that?
I mean that we think when I fix this thing OUT in the world (body, money, relationship) I will FEEL good. But unless you work on inside of you, you will not be able to really receive the things you want and receiving them will not make the slightest difference to how you feel.
Luckily, this is just a massive misunderstanding. If you work on what is going on inside of you, and when you feel GOOD on the INSIDE when everything on the outside shows up you will be able to see, hear and feel it!!!
Doing the work, taking time out to work on your perception, your attitude, your thoughts, your values and beliefs WILL change EVERYTHING and is SO worth your investment. Whether you are a Freelancer, Business Owner or Entrepreneur - You are the biggest asset to your business, so investing in YOU is the best place to get the greatest ROI.
Research carried out by the Carnegie Institute of Technology shows that 85 percent of your financial success is down to skills in “human engineering,” your personality and ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead. Shockingly, only 15 percent is due to technical knowledge. Additionally, Nobel Prize winning Israeli-American psychologist, Daniel Kahneman, found that people would rather do business with a person they like and trust rather than someone they don’t, even if the likeable person is offering a lower quality product or service at a higher price. With this in mind, making an investment in strengthening your EQ (Emotional Intelligence), MQ (Moral Intelligence), and BQ (Body Intelligence is the logical thing to do.
If you don't have time for this sorta thing that really is okay - Where you currently are isn't so bad. It's got you this far right? Occasional burn out, overwhelm, apathy, loneliness, resentment might just a part of life......
OR you can do some work on you, and discover calm, contentment. Unveil a world where your career is fulfilling and rewarding. Where you are proud of what you see in the mirror. Where there is time to hang out with your loved ones, to be playful, relaxed and connected.
The steps are simple...
- Become aware.
- Work out what you aspire to.
- Learn to use your judgement and accept what you have the power to change.
- Take some action.
- Get accountable for yourself.
- Take time out to acknowledge the progress you are making and the feedback you are receiving.
- Find a way to appreciate yourself and those around you.
Increased EQ, MQ and BQ is achievable for EVERYONE:
EQ is the most well known of the three, and in brief it is about: being aware of your own feelings and those of others, regulating these feelings in yourself and others, using emotions that are appropriate to the situation, self-motivation, and building relationships.
Top Tip for Improvement: First, become aware of your inner dialogue. It helps to keep a journal of what thoughts fill your mind during the day. Stress can be a huge killer of emotional intelligence, so you also need to develop healthy coping techniques that can effectively and quickly reduce stress in a volatile situation.
MQ directly follows EQ as it deals with your integrity, responsibility, sympathy, and forgiveness. The way you treat yourself is the way other people will treat you. Keeping commitments, maintaining your integrity, and being honest are crucial to moral intelligence.
Top Tip for Improvement: Make fewer excuses and take responsibility for your actions. Avoid little white lies. Show sympathy and communicate respect to others. Practice acceptance and show tolerance of other people’s shortcomings. Forgiveness is not just about how we relate to others; it’s also how you relate to and feel about yourself.
Lastly, there is your BQ, or body intelligence, which reflects what you know about your body, how you feel about it, and take care of it. Your body is constantly telling you things; are you listening to the signals or ignoring them? Are you eating energy-giving or energy-draining foods on a daily basis? Are you getting enough rest? Do you exercise and take care of your body? It may seem like these matters are unrelated to business performance, but your body intelligence absolutely affects your work because it largely determines your feelings, thoughts, self-confidence, state of mind, and energy level.
Top Tip For Improvement: At least once a day, listen to the messages your body is sending you about your health. Actively monitor these signals instead of going on autopilot. Good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate rest are all key aspects of having a high BQ. Monitoring your weight, practicing moderation with alcohol, and making sure you have down time can dramatically benefit the functioning of your brain and the way you perform and feel.
