6 Signs You Have A Low EQ

Cognitive flexibility and a high EQ are competitive advantages – not only for managers and sales people. Emotional intelligence is the set of skills and character traits that most successful people have in common.

5 Natural Ways To Reduce Stress

Simple Stress Relief Tools Stress is everybody’s business. You could think you have it under control, but the truth is that stress has a way of creeping up on you, and causing drastic health repercussions. We live in a hectic world, one which requires our stress hormone, cortisol, to work overtime. However, this is far from the way this hormone was meant to act. The body’s stress reaction was supposed to be called into play when man’s survival was threatened, not when he or she was 5 minutes late to work. Today, regardless of what your stressor is, you need to find effective natural ways to reduce it. Do not… Read More

6 Signs of People with a high EQ

My new article has been published on EI Hub: http://ei-hub.com/6-signs-of-people-with-a-high-eq/ Emotional intelligence might still be a highly underrated and yet the most important set of skills and character traits. EQ stands for emotional quotient. Opposite to “classic” intelligence, emotional talents are not related to mathematics or physics. It describes the ability to deal with our own emotions and the emotions of others. Goethe called it: “development of the heart.” People with a high EQ are able to assess and influence their own emotions as well as the emotions of others. In line with this, they are often successful in their jobs, even though they might possess limited professional qualifications. They… Read More

Positive vs. negative Motivation

Why positive motivation is better for your brain I just scrolled through my LinkedIn news feed and noticed plenty of negative quotes. You find them on all social networking sites.  Motivation is the sum of motives for our readiness to act which means our pursuit of goals or targets based on emotional and neuronal activity.  Today we will not look at the topic in its complexity, but just pick out one factor constantly in front of our eyes. We will neither look at sources for motivation nor different models. “Negative motivation” can be defined as something we do out of fear or to avoid certain consequences, but we will further… Read More

The Price of Intuition

Intuition is the result of suffering I had what people call a violent, abusive father. My mom told me that he became like that after a car accident that left my father in a coma for 6 months and 1 week. My mom also told me that it’s my fault she ever had to marry him because she was pregnant. Therefore, I took that statement with a grain of salt and learned to form my own opinion early on. The dirty divorce war lasted over seven years and was fought mostly at my expense. One parent blaming and accusing the other while my father sometimes tried to kidnap me from… Read More

8 Hacks For More Confidence

Confidence is self-trust. How far we trust ourselves decides about our results. A former trainer of mine, Lester Karrass, famously said: “In business and in life – you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.” The less faith you have in yourself, the weaker will you negotiate. You will settle for little. We ask for what we feel we are worth. People who lack confidence will neither ask nor get much from life. I put together for your 8 simple tips that allow you to increase your confidence and start re-negotiating with life. I will admit that the “simple tips” are a comprehensive collection of self-growth exercises. “Comprehensive… Read More

Boost your feeling of self-worth

Project Confidence is available now “I want more from life! I would love to be stronger. More daring. I want to be myself. Not afraid of doing my thing. I want to be open to people.

Many of the problems of… Read More

The weight of life – A Short Story

A short story A student walked over to the wise old man. “Sir,” he said with a slow voice, “life is a heavy burden on my shoulders.
