Emotional Intelligence in Nigeria

Dear Nigeria,

I am sorry I couldn’t speak with you yesterday. It was my rest day.

I also observed that people were consumed with you,

So I decided to wait till you could create time for me.

Emotional Intelligence in Nigeria

I met you about 4 decades ago.

It was love at first sight.

I was in love with all I was told you could become.

But as decades passed by, it became an abusive home.

The more I loved you, the less I received.

I kept praying and hoping for an intervention but alas,

I have accepted my reality.

You will always exist but I will not so I have to invest my life wisely.

I have to accept the fact that I can love you from afar.

I am also not called to you alone, I was instructed to go ye into the world…

So I have obeyed the instruction.

I still love you but I can’t fix you alone.

All you have become is also not your fault.

You are who we are. Though we hate to admit it.

And if you have to change, we all have to change.

We have to prioritise people preservation and earth preservation.

We have to accept the fact that great Nations are built from emotionally stable families.

Happy diamond jubilee.

May the rest of your life be the best of your years.

Emotional Intelligence – Mental Edit

Ever wondered why you can’t say what you feel the way you feel it?

Well, it’s the same way you will not eat a live chicken when you feel like eating chicken,

Or bite a live goat when you feel like eating goat meat.

Words are not meant to be uttered without been refined.

Words are meant to be processed through your cognitive centre.

Uttering words without mental edit exposes your emotional deficiency.

It makes discerning minds know that you are mentally lazy.

Emotional intelligence

You prefer not to think.

You love short cuts.

As you think it, you say it.

That is why you say it as it is or give a piece of your mind.

Lack of filter will make you lose money, clients, prospects and relationships.

Your mouth will affect your credit alerts.

No one appreciates rudeness or anyhowness.

Not even you.

So stop boasting about your spirit of dramatic rudeness.

Embrace mental edit.

Sieve your thoughts into kind words.

Your style of delivery is as important as the content of the delivery.

Invest in your emotional intelligence.
