MBL Minute: Amateur Or Professional And Emotions, Thoughts And Actions


Episode Notes


Amateur or Professional


Overcoming our resistance to change is far more important than any gift or talent we may possess.  We need to manage our emotions in order to lead and inspire others to want to follow our example.  Our ability to overcome resistance, self-sabotage, and self-doubt is way more important than talent.  There are lots and lots of people that have talent but only a few of them are willing to turn that talent into positive actions and results.


Emotions, Thoughts and Actions


Emotions are the catalysts that turn thoughts into actions and results.  Intellectual intelligence and emotional intelligence are meant to work together.  We need both but intellectual intelligence is largely dependent on genetics whereas emotional intelligence is developed through their actions.  There is no limit to how emotionally intelligent we can become.  Emotional intelligence has become a key consideration for personal and career success.
