Emotional Intelligence 101: Become the Master of Your Life

via Skillshare


Life isn’t always comfortable. I think that’s a universal truth we could all agree on.

Life can throw a great deal of suffering at us. This indeed can be overwhelming and quite confusing.

The main problem is that from the start of our journey in life, the schools, and many times our parents, help provide us with the knowledge and the tools for how to deal with those challenges in a healthy way.

The purpose of this course is to supply you with that knowledge and those tools.

In this course, you will get a better understanding of yourself and about some fundamental topics that can greatly reduce pain and suffering, and about how to carve out a happier, healthier, and more meaningful life.

This is not a sit-down-and-motivate-me course but an intense course you actively participate in.

Divided into three chapters that progress deeper and deeper into developing, understanding, and creating a more meaningful life for yourself.

Here are a few things you will learn:

Chapter 1 – Awareness:

● Understanding Emotions & What Is Emotional First Aid?

● What Is the Mind and How Does It Work?

● Which Poisons Are You Taking in Your Life?

● What Is Love? - A Deeper Look at Understanding Love

● Learn about the Purpose of Life

● And much more …

Chapter 2 – Facing the Self

● The Wheel of Life – What Is Lacking in Your Life?

● Where Does Your Suffering Come From?

● What is your Love Language?

● Are You Traumatized? Signs and Symptoms of Trauma

● And much more…

Chapter 3 – IMPLEMENT: Practical Techniques for a Healthier, Happier, and More Meaningful Life

● Mindfulness Exercises

● How to Deal with Trauma in a Healthy Way

● How to Find Your Community, Meet Like Minded Friends, and Obtain Meaningful Relationships

● How Quality Questions Make a Quality Life – How to Ask Quality Questions

● And much more…

If you are feeling a lack of energy, purpose, meaning, or happiness, if you feel stuck in life, or simply want to bring the quality of your life to a higher level, you are invited on this wonderful and most exciting journey of inner exploration and transformation.

Additionally, you will enjoy:

  • Stunning animations from two talented animators

  • Beautiful and insightful illustrations

  • The Practice Book, a book filled with exercises to observe certain feelings, answer specific questions, or do a list of activities

This course from The IPS Project, the educational platform on life, will help open doors to new insights, opportunities, a higher understanding, and ultimately bring positive change.
