Emotional Intelligence Key Components

Emotional Intelligence Key Components

  1. Comfort with the full range of emotions. Life comes with lots of emotions. In order to live their best version of themselves, people with high EQ accept whatever emotions come up.
  2. Open-hearted awareness. We can't heal what we don't acknowledge. Avoidance only works short-term, but leaving thoughts and problems unsolved will harm you exponentially long-term.
  3. Ways to soothe and settle unpleasant emotions. Individuals with high EQ experience disturbing emotions, however, they don't have their mind clouded by them. They have ways to lift their mood without getting locked in endless battles.

The Healing Principle

Reconsolidation means the brain can maintain, strengthen and modify painful memories (already stored in the long-term memory) and their related emotions if we bring all aspects of the memory into full awareness.

This principle is utilized by nearly all of the effective treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder.

For example, if someone tells his/her story to a respectful and compassionate witness, the compassion and respect emotions will replace the shame one, previously stuck in the painful memory.

The Floatback Strategy for Disturbing Events

When we experience intense, excessive emotions without knowing their exact source, they most probably come from disturbing unsettled memories.

An innocent remark taken as criticism can be triggered by a memory of being shamed by a critical parent in childhood.

Assuming one recalls a recent memory, the steps for this strategy are:

  • Comforting awareness: "This is a moment of suffering"
  • Acknowledging that everyone suffers: "Suffering is a part of life"
  • Soothing and settling the memory and emotions: "I may give myself the compassion I need"

Caution and Hope

Detailed instructions for the Floatback Strategy can be helpful, but if at any point this strategy, or any other self-managed strategy, becomes overwhelming, the strategy is put aside.

Overwhelming reactions to the past may signal the need to enlist the aid of a skilled trauma therapist, who can teach many other ways to process troubling memories from childhood.

The good news is that if one way is not effective, there are many other effective strategies to try so that one becomes confident in coping with difficult emotions. One need not suffer for decades without relief.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
