ambitious, driving, strong, decisive, warm, enthusiastic, sociable, persuasive, patient, stable, practicable, predictable, consistent, and good listener.

 

 

Everybody wants to achieve success in his life in his field of activities-it may be at home, in office, in the society etcetera.

How to Develop Soft Skills

The Desire, Direction, Dedication and Discipline are required for any activity to seek completion. Those who follow , they become different from others and therefore excel.

The basic action is to go for self-analysis. SWOT is one method for such analysis. The inbuilt personality traits can be analysed as below (for example) and developed further. The developed personality traits will help in enhancing EI contents at workplace to get better output.









 

 

 

IQ and EI / EQ, both are necessary. It is EQ / EI that Matters more. Higher the EQ more shall be success. You need a desire, direction, dedication, and discipline to cultivate EI/EQ. Man is physically ill-equipped, but it has the thinking ability and so different from other species.

Successful people do small things in great way. Every failure   boosts them for their efforts to achieve success. The chicken must struggle itself from coming out of the egg and does not get any support, and if it comes out with others help it is not likely to survive.

Struggle is must for success. IN the last 30 years before Abraham Lincoln became president of United States of America, passed through the phase of nervous breakdown, defeats in eight elections, failure in business twice but ultimately became well known president of United State of America.


 

If you want maximal productivity and if you want work that gets the best results, you want the people doing that work to be in the optimal brain state for the work. You are a person who can evict them from the zone of optimal performance by slothfully handling your own interactions with them. So, it’s up to you to take responsibility for your impact on their ability to work at their best. — Daniel Goleman
