How To Be Emotionally Intelligent.

Without an emotionally intelligent mind, we will simply live our lives at the mercy of life.

Although, that’s already kind of how life works, but we have the power to control a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean ourselves.

Stephen Covey called this “a lot” our Circle of Influence in his best-selling book, The Seven Habits of Effective People.

Taking charge of our emotional intellect doubly causes to take charge of this Circle of Influence. And it will help us live an effective life with others and with ourselves.

Leonardo Da Vinci was more than just a famous artist - he was also a mathematician, scientist, and philosopher. Da Vinci was a polymath - a person with multiple interests or passions. Other well-known polymaths were Newton, Aristotle, Galileo, Faraday, Leibniz, and more. Most successful entrepreneurs of current times, such as Elon Mush, Warren Buffet, and Jeff Bezos, are polymaths too.
