    Write it down and offer it up!

    The next time painful or stressful feelings threaten to overwhelm you, here is what you do: write down a word or two that describes the emotion you’re experiencing.

    It's a compressed version of the three-step process of self-compassion identified by the psychologist Kristin Neff at the University of Texas at Austin:
    1) Admit that a situation is painful or uncomfortable
    2) Recognize that pain and discomfort are universal elements of the human experience
    3) Do something healthy to alleviate the discomfort like get outside, stretch, or call a friend

    I agree. Jim Whitehurst, CEO of Red Hat, “Too often we tout the intellectual capabilities of leaders by focusing on their IQ, when we should really be valuing their emotional intelligence quotient or EQ score. Being the smartest person in the room is not enough if you don’t have the capacity to work with the people who are in that room with you.When you work with and through communities of contributors as Red Hat does, where you can’t order anyone to do anything for you, your ability to listen, process, and not take everything personally becomes incredibly valuable.”

    Try to imagine the worst Doctor in the worst with the High EQ and the Best Doctor in the world with a low EQ. After a visit to the "worst doctor", his or her patients will most likely return. Now when we look at the "Best Doctor", his or her patients are more looking for a reason to sue the doctor just because they made them upset. This principle applies is so many areas of life.

    "Increasingly, individuals who were hired for their intellectual knowledge are being passed over for promotion because they lack the emotional intelligence necessary to succeed.

    Is there a Gold Star that I could affix to my belly in Sneech fashion to let others know - I have all the Emotional Intelligence I need ? I would love to see the source citations for those statistics. EVERY EQ test that I have taken - could be, and has been gamed. If I know what you are looking for - pandering to it - is easy. (Invariably it is the Unicorn / Rainbow / Butterfly / Heart Emoji play-land that I like to avoid)

    Some people use misery as an attention seeking tool. All they ever manage to do with that behaviour is drive people away. Setbacks in life can make us feel very sad and unhappy for a period of time. You have to remember, though, that the only difference between failure and a setback is mindset. If you see your negative circumstances as temporary and within your control, then you can certainly create happiness for yourself by altering your circumstances and your point of view. You have to really like being happy more than you like being miserable, though. I liked this post. Thanks for writing it. I shared it with some miserable people I know. :)

    Excellent @Emilia M. Ludovino - really good points - I particularly liked the analogy you used about bending your knee after a Knee operation "The first thing the doctors have them to do after surgery is bend the knee. They have to move. It hurts like f-ing hell and no one wants to do it but they have to. Otherwise the knee becomes frozen. The range of motion will become lost and the knee will become incapable of bending." Am sharing !

    As we grow older (and experience a vast multitude of happiness, pain and sorrow) we're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Call it "gun shy," but we're always wondering when happiness will end and the shit storm will start. It's one thing to embrace pain, but it's another to never let go. Psychiatrists call this the "martyr state" and people can live their whole lives like this. They find a comfort level "waiting for the other shoe to drop." What separates us from other animals (for good or bad) is we can understand pain. We can do something about it. That's part of our evolution. I think our biggest problem is NOT letting go of pain. It creates long periods of distress (and also wars, by the way). At some point, we have to leave the "martyr state." That's really what separates us from other animals.

    Ten Unmistakable Signs Of A Fear-Based Workplace by Liz Ryan.

    I did not know what a fear-based workplace was the first time I started working in one. At first, I thought the problem was me.

    Maybe I didn't have the right clothes or know the right business jargon. I walked on eggshells at work. I went home anxious and discouraged every night.

    Gradually it dawned on me that it wasn't just me. My co-workers were uptight, too. No one was having a good time in our workplace. What made everyone so nervous and fearful?

    It can take time to realize that you work in a fear-based environment. We can't bear to think that we took a new job in a broken company!

    A fear-based workplace is a place where fear is the predominant energy. A healthy workplace is one where trust is the predominant energy.

    When I was young I used to do the Mensa Tests in the Sunday Magazines in the UK. You were given an hour to do them. I used to do them in 10 minutes flat and made one deliberate mistake. When I told Nigel about his he laughed and said that it was his strategy too for doing IQ Tests. I never bothered to join Mensa though. I thought it would be rather boring to hang out with people who would spend their time bragging about how smart they were..... After all it must be the stunted who need to boast.

    #6 Thanks @Max🐝 J. Carter! I remember when I was about 16 my headmistress called my parents in for a meeting with me. She argued with them for quite a while about my low intelligence and the fact that I would not be a good candidate for university. She even suggested that I left school and enrolled in a secretarial college.... Fortunately two science degrees later I proved her wrong. Her silence on hearing the news was quite telling.... Miss Dees couldn't even be bothered to say a limp 'well done'. My parents immediately enrolled me in one of the UK's top schools and I did very well there.
    I wonder how many girls had their dreams crushed by this narrow minded alcoholic?

    I can relate to that @Max🐝 J. Carter! I actually got a very low score on the IQ tests I sat as a very young child as they are maths based and I am numerate dyslexic. It was only when I was helping a friend out at Kings College in London with a new IQ Test did I realise just how high my IQ was - I aced all the tests up to 180 - then Philip wanted me to do more and more (he was getting rather excited!). It was a rare sunny summer's day in London and I said no. He persuaded me to do one more... Like you my IQ is over 200. My brother in law frequently described conversations between myself and my sweet ex-husband Nigel as being in the 180 Club! I have never measured my emotional intelligence - perhaps I fear it would be a bit low.... I've noticed that Dr Travis does not respond to his comments either.... A rather aloof approach to someone that champions Emotional Intelligence don't you think?

    The only emotional empowerment required to survive a day of productivity is to be determined to do the best we can today (i.e. : seeking excellence rather than perfection) with the proviso that tomorrow is another day in which we can try to best our yesterdays. Any more requirement than that needs a therapist.

    I un-banked when I left the States, I haven't had a telephone in 3 years, if I were to say I have any Emotional Account - it would have been unplugged too. Emotions, and pandering to them, are quite avoidable. We live in a six second world where 'Reality' is faked, scripted, produced ~ where you are an easily replaceable line item on a corporate spread sheet ~ where 'love' is transactional, temporary and disposable ~ where war is not only inevitable but routinely scheduled. Society is merely a herd of widgets - managed through the life-cycle wickets of eat, sleep, work & reproduce well teased with money and goaded with fear before you are shuffled of to the meat packing slaughter house.
    I try to keep my Apathy in check with doses of Indifference and Detached Ambivalence - I am rewarded daily for those efforts.

    As someone who prides himself on positive thinking -- despite naysayers -- I completely concur with your astute advice, Emilia. It's just as easy to think positively than negatively and view the proverbial cup as half full, rather than half empty. I wish you all the best and hope your cup overflows with positive life experiences.
    Lastly, for those who have a negative mindset as knee-jerk reaction, here's some recommended reading by the godfather of positive thinking, the late and great Rev. Norman Vincent Peale https://www.amazon.com/Norman-Vincent-Peale/e/B000APPE7E Keep buzzing in 2017!

    I tend to not analyze why, in fact, I am pretty sure the other buddy comedy that cracks me up every time I watch it - Ab Fab - does so for the exact opposite reason as G&F. G&F is funny because it is so real, and AbFab because it is so outlandishly unreal.

    And then there is the 'doll & Rita Wilson' episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. What a crescendo of laughter that barely stops for the whole 30 minutes.....

"On 24 March 1975, Alex Mitchell, from King's Lynn, England, died laughing while watching the "Kung Fu Kapers" episode of The Goodies, featuring a kilt-clad Scotsman with his bagpipes battling a master of the Lancastrian martial art "Eckythump", who was armed with a black pudding."

    Because we're all different, it is often different things which make us laugh. My lovely wife laughs when people hurt themselves, I laughed at the funny bearded bloke in the "Bee cool" t-shirt at the end of your post (only kidding... or am I).

    #9 I watched your video, Sara, on my own and went from silent chortle to laugh out loud in less than a minute. This video is a great find, Sara, and the babies laughing at dogs which follow it is also hilarious. Thanks for the endorphin transfusion. 🤣

    #6 Thanks for your thoughts, Gert, and of course the joke, which fits into the 'Mismatch of Expectation and Reality' category. This also brings up the concept of miscommunication by accident when we can only really laugh when we are in a remote situation or really know a person well, rather than in a face to face situation, particularly with strangers. I remember the tale of the unfortunate overseas student who arrived in UK and got himself into a number of awkward situations by frequently asking for "hairy twot". After a number of episodes (embarrassing to him but hilarious to others) it transpired he was looking for directions to Herriot Watt University.

    I love your style @Ken Boddie; you offer a serious buzz on laughter. But seriously, try to keep a straight face when watching this video of babies laughing (3 min.)

    I was waiting for the punch line Ken...

    Seriously though, some great questions. Why do we laugh? Why did it evolve so that only one type of shrieking laughter is present in a restaurant when you and your partner are trying to have a semi-romantic evening?

    In a recent post I wrote on people's use of titles (vs. experience), I made mention of someone calling themselves "Chief Giggles Officer". I wrote that in a mocking tone. I stand corrected. Any of the people on the panel of the television show you referenced likely qualify for that title.

    What emotional intelligence means to me (revised)
    What emotional intelligence means to me (revised)I keep seeing this reference to “emotional intelligence” on social media. I can’t read the whole article lots of times because it’s boring to me, and I don’t really understand what they’re talking about. The first time I saw it was around 2005. I...

    #5 Hi Edythe! I certainly do not intend for the article to suggest that the "seminar" was about emotional intelligence. I am suggesting that an emotionally intelligent person would have read the scenario and extricated themselves from it. Thanks for the feedback!

    Hello all,

    Thank you for posting your thoughts on EI (or EQ, as I call it). I am new here to this platform, so please go easy on me!

    I am a certified Emotional Intelligence practitioner. After a great deal of research into this subject myself, I sought out to become certified in the most statistically reliable model of EQ (and there are more than a few out there): the EQ-i 2.0, which also includes a valid self-report, when administered correctly.

    Based on what you’ve described, this (to me) doesn’t sound like Emotional Intelligence at all (particularly the sharing of “secrets”), which is quite unfortunate. When it is presented correctly, by someone who understand what it does (and does not) measure, it is not only empowering, but actionable. Results are malleable, and b/c coaching is part of this process, one’s EQ “score” not only does, but should change when goals are set and action is taken.

    For more information about what EQ is and isn’t, I have a short article on my blog: http://atopcareer.com/eq-ei-emotional-intelligence-overview/, and I’ll be posting more on this topic once I become familiar with this medium.

    Variation on a theme: "Intelligent Ignorance"

    #2 I think the inner anchor is the ideal.anchor, it just needs the right trigger. It makes our filters working fine, most people link their inner anchor to a memory and courage, I like to link it with patience.
    Why I am.interested in EI is because of 3 things :
    A) someone I least expected who belonged to this field helped me, I got curious and the more I studied it the more shameless greedy people emerged who were the cut from the exact same cloth as phoney preachers.
    B) it has less to do with coaching and more with the habituation of sled contempt for the serious.cases and spoon feeding for many who don't have time to sort themselves out.
    C) Now I want to get work from clients and I find all this coaching etc when they themselves have diminishing revenue very unacceptable, spend 10 % of that on me or 50% of that on yourself , Get on your feet and start earning...Isn't spend when the wallets empty. Makes you more vulnerable.also I was their I could be their again.

    This is an assumption, I believe childhood learning coupled with one good teacher moulds the inner anchor, the teacher could be family/freind/teacher/anyone.cant their be a way of making it consistent

    First we perceive the world as a harmful environment and seek refuge in coaching, therapy, emotional intelligence etc.
    Then we areade aware of the exploitation and remove ourselves from that environment.
    What is the probability of a person bouncing in and out of places ?
    Also, couldn't a person develop and anchor/ refuge for self irrespective of the environment around and use that anchor to bounce back into a sensible emotional aware being? Stuff I ask myself and share here.

    Hi Amarish, thanks for the share. Intuition is also defined as the direct perception of knowledge. You indicate that the article above is written by Vishal Kataria. All of it? Or just the mind mapping bit?

    This is an excellent concept and rings very true as you stated with your question, "What Stifles Creativity? " This is a question i try and answer everyday in my profession. When faced with leadership issues you not only have the creative steps of going forward but you have others in the organization that require you to bring them along. The overall answer to the question is fear.

    A broad answer but as @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher stated, "I thought it was a crazy idea...",overcoming our own limitations is the first key to becoming creative. Mind mapping i can only assume must be done within a vacuum of no fear. When you develop links across hemispheres their can't be channeling based on fears already established, they must flow freely.

    Thanks for the post

    I like the idea of drawing a visual mind map @Amarish J. Khan 🐝. When I have time I will have to give it a try. It's true that we utilize both sides of our brain. It even works in cases of medical issues. I have a damaged nerve inside my inner ear which is closely connected to the Cerebellum. I was taught to do brain exercises to allow another part of my brain to compensate for the vertigo. I thought it was a crazy idea at first but it worked. It didn't get rid of it but I gained my balance back and most of my vertigo is under control now. They've even removed one side of the brain in children who had chronic, uncontrolled seizures and found the kids were able to function just as highly with one half of their brain & the seizures diminished greatly or disappeared.

    Just left a review of this fabulous book by a great bee, @Deb Lange and mentioned the fact that we met on beBee!!!

    Here is the most interesting fact about Deb Lange's book. It is helping me so much, that I want to spend all my available time playing, and walking, and sensing the world around me – I keep popping away from my keyboard when I sit down to write a review.

    I recently had the good fortune to meet Deb on a new social media site – beBee. We live in such a magical time. You can synchronistically bump into an author on the other side of the world, a few months before her book is published, strike up a few conversations, and then when the book is available – it is the exact guide that you need to help you help yourself through a period of immense transition.

    This is truly a MUST EXPERIENCE book as read is too one-dimensional to describe the full impact of learning about embodied wisdom. Deb Lange is a marvelous guide through the rites of passage that will allow us to operate with a full body intelligence.

    I really recommend that anyone looking to understand their sensory-based body wisdom get a copy of this book - the words and illustrations partner to create a sense of feeling what one is reading.

    Most especially in how I have been able to have so many conversations with @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee - there is something very powerful to the concept of "Bringing the Book Alive"

    I am in my element alone with a book, but there is further magic & lots of breakthroughs when we can have a series of conversations after reading the book.
