We all are aware of our Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and we also work towards raising it. There is a myth that our success and progress is directly connected to our IQ. The truth according to surveys is that success DEPENDS more on a person’s EQ rather than IQ.
EQ, Emotional Quotient of a person is measured by his ability to respond positively to challenges, failures and tough situations. Also, in team work one’s ability to work effectively depends on his EQ.
Beyond IQ and EQ, one can experience unconditional joy, love, peace and power when one’s Spiritual Quotient is high. SQ brings deeper understanding about life and life experiences. One can rise above the three dimensional reality and look at things from higher level of consciousness. Virtues like tolerance and patience easily develop and one operates with love, compassion and peace.
1. Play board games, solve puzzles and solve Sudoku in your free time rather than surfing. This will enhance your IQ.
2. Sit in a quiet place, focus on your breadth and calm down. Become aware of what you are thinking and feeling at that point of time. Discard if they are negative and switch to the feeling of gratitude. This will help you raise your EQ.
3. Take out some time everyday to sit in silence, go deep within and just observe whatever is happening. Remain equanimous and tranquil. Be mindful and aware of your present moment. See it passing by. Flow with the time in the aware state. Non judgemental, non reactive. This practice can enhance your SQ and you’ll see its positive impact in your outer world.
