New year, new beginnings! It’s that season, once again, to jot down resolutions and other goals. Go on. You’re entitled to choose whichever way you’d like to live your life. Now, that’s something to look forward to!

There’s no denying that for anyone to enjoy life, there must be minimal (or no) stress. You’ll probably think of some lifestyle adjustments like saving up, travelling, eating healthy, making new friends and serving your community. How about a makeover? Visit the salon for a more daring hairstyle. Do a fashion overhaul. Shop. And then, shop again.

But, if there’s anything you need to invest in for this awesome season, it’s yourself. Perhaps, the past had brought challenges in life, good and bad. No matter what, leave that phase and flip the chapter where an exciting (and hopefully better) adventure awaits. That will entail a better you- an upgrade of your totality as a person. 

Well, here’s a significant ingredient to becoming an improved version of your current self.

Heard about EQ? Aside from IQ, emotional intelligence is an important factor to gauge a person’s future accomplishments. A high EQ makes one stand out from the rest of the crowd. It’s that critical. It is both intangible and immeasurable. However, there are clear signs that convey you’re an emotionally intelligent person. 

1.You can define your emotions.

Few have the gift of really understanding and verbalizing how they feel.  Identifying emotions is not a too common ability. But, that very thing restrains you from coming up with unreasonable decisions and actions.

2.You are flexible to changes.

If you’re the type who can easily come to terms with varying situations, congratulations! Even so, having a high EQ doesn’t translate to having no fear to changes. You face the fear and carefully plan for the most suitable procedure to deal with circumstances.

3.You care about the people around you.

Do you sincerely care for others? Needless to say, emotionally intelligent people value people. It results from empathy, which is typical to those with high EQ. 

4.You keep no record of wrongs.

You don’t hold on to mistakes. Because you fully know that perfection doesn’t exist, your only option after a failure is to stand up and move forward. 

5.You know your boundaries.

High EQ means you acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses. With that, saying no to others (and even to yourself) is never a tough job. 

6.You freely give from your heart.

Generosity is your game. You’re selfless. And above all, you don’t hope for anything in return.

7.You are thankful for what you have.

A grateful heart is another aspect that makes an emotionally intelligent person attract attention. This is the reason why you’re full of energy and in a sunny disposition most of the time.

8.You enjoy enough zzz.

You’re quite an envy ‘cause you get just the right amount of sleep. Now, you realize the ground for your alertness and sound mind.

9.You don’t allow anyone to steal your joy.

“What others think of you is none of your business” mantra is something you live by. Others’ judgments or criticisms don’t put you down. 

10.You know how to shun anything negative.

Positive and happy thoughts only! You firmly believe that the future is bright. What dampens your spirit, you avoid. 

Remember, it’s not yet late to develop emotional intelligence!
