Doing such gives us the opportunities to do all of the things that help us build our emotional intelligence! A high level of emotional intelligence can be found in many of the world’s most successful people and leaders. Like exercising our physical muscles, the more we use our emotional intelligence, the more it grows (i.e. the more challenges we face, the more chances we have to grow!).
