Dare to Live without Limits

Improving your emotional intelligence has many benefits

        How well do you get along with others? How effective are you at dealing with your own emotions? The ability to deal with your emotions, as well as the emotions of others is known as emotional intelligence. Having a higher emotional intelligence boosts your effectiveness in accomplishing your goals.

        Pay attention to your emotions as well as being sensitive to how other people are feeling. Not being aware of how you are feeling, or what’s going on around you, makes it nearly impossible to function effectively in society. Being labeled as an insensitive boor is something you don’t need.

Avoid drifting through life by knowing what you want

        Drifting through life is an all too common phenomenon. Drifting results in not knowing where you are, or where you are going. You’re wondering what’s happening and why. Drifting through life is analogous to drifting on a sailboat.

        A sailboat will drift for several reasons. When there is no one behind the wheel, the direction of the boat is random and unpredictable. A sailor who doesn’t have a map or a specific destination will drift. If the person on the boat doesn’t know how to sail, the boat will drift. Without a rudder, a boat will drift. Even a skilled sailor, on a perfect boat, with a well-planned specific destination, will drift if he doesn’t pay attention to where he is going.

Plan your personal construction timetable

        Construction projects appear chaotic while they are being built. A new home, which is under construction, is messy and seemingly in disarray until it is finally completed. While it’s under construction it has little or no appeal. Before it’s finished, it’s hard to imagine it being a place you would ever want to live. The unlivable condition persists until the day the entire project has been cleaned up and is in move in condition.

        Despite all of the chaos, the construction process follows specific, detailed plans which guide each step of the process. Each step has been designed ahead of time. The final appearance of the completed project is known well before any construction begins.
