A recent study has been conducted, showing that successful people are also those who have high emotional intelligence. On the other hand, the core of emotional intelligence is self-control, which is a skill that releases massive productivity and allows you to keep your focus and on track.
The thing though is that self-control is a skill that is challenging to attain. It is fleeting for some people, which is why they end up asking for the assistance of a business coach to guide them out. This is because some people find it easy to divert their attention to failures than on success.
Here are some ways in which successful people stay productive and in control.
At times, failure to control oneself can lead to the feeling of disappointment .This can, in turn, affect your productivity. If you happen to experience this slip, it is very important to put an effort in forgiving yourself. This is the only way in which you can move on easily. However, this also calls the need to acknowledge the way that the mistake makes you feel, but make sure that you do not get overindulged in it. Put an effort in shifting your attention to what you can actually do to improve next time, thus giving yourself a chance to achieve professional success at the same time.
Say Yes Only When You Mean It
A study that was done at the University of California shows that the more difficult it is to say no, the more likely you will feel stress, depression and burnout. All of these can result to a decrease in self-control and productivity. A ‘no’, after all, is a very powerful word, which we should not hesitate to wield, especially when we really cannot give a ‘yes’. An emotionally intelligent person does not use the phrases ‘I’m not sure’, or ‘I don’t think I can’. This is just one of the lessons that you can get through the help of a business consultant.
Do Not Seek Perfection
A business success coach can also help you in understanding that perfection should not be your target. That target just doesn’t exist. If you are a business man and you consider perfection as your goal, you just end up wasting your time in lamenting over your failures. On the other hand, if you focus on the realistic side, you bring in advantage in your business.
