With her commitment to self-knowledge and self-awareness, an empowered woman is able to wield her power to choose her response in all situations and circumstances. She knows that her freedom and the quality of her life is inherent in her day to day choices. 🦋
Our behaviour reveals both our fears and our faith in ourself.
Behaviour doesn’t lie like words can.
When we witness our behaviour we open a window to our inner-self.
Self-awareness can be a powerful watershed for self-empowerment.
Wondering ‘who am I?’ Observe yourself as you move through today.
What did you discover? 🦋
An empowered woman knows that she alone is the source, the cause affecting an effect in her world.
She understands that the quality of her experiences is in her control, as it is she who shapes every moment with her awareness of ‘self’ with what or whom presents itself. 🦋
If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.
~ Daniel Goleman
If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far. ~ Daniel Goleman ( Emotional Intelligence)
Emotional Intelligence is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It defines how and what we learn; it allows us to set priorities; it determines the majority of our daily actions. Research suggests it is responsible for as much as 80% of the “success” in our lives. ~ Ph.D Anabel L. Jensen, Marsha C. Rideout, Patricia E. Freedman, Joshua M. Freedman (Handle With Care: Emotional Intelligence Activity Book)
In the last decade or so, science has discovered a tremendous amount about the role emotions play in our lives. Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and abilities to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships. ~ John Gottman (Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child)
It is very important to understand that emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head — it is the unique intersection of both. ~ David Caruso (Emotional What?)
