Concentrate on Yourself

Sometimes, we are surrounded by people who feel compelled to give us their judgemental opinions without taking into consideration that they do not always know what is going on behind what meets the eyes. Stand for yourself and what is important for you. In emotional intelligence, self-actualization is the complete realization that YOU are capable of involving the maximum development of your abilities and full appreciation for life, particularly as manifest in peak experiences. Striving toward YOUR full potential as fundamental yet obtainable only after the basic needs of physical survival, safety, love and belongingness, and esteem are fulfilled.


Many people are slaves of social standards, and they push others to do so Judgement-based questions only hinder your goals. You should be strong enough to do things because you desire them, rather than because you need to fulfill some else’s expectations. Be true to yourself. Be strong. Be in power. Be your own master. Follow your heart and do things because you desire them, rather than because you have to fulfill someone’s expectation.

Information Becomes Emotions

Your environment is full of raw data, raw information. Knowledge about facts, ideas, and emotions is gained through information we acquired based on our environment, experience, and practice. It contains messages that reduce uncertainty and allow us to make decisions and solve problems. As such, information is processed by our brain. As the brain processes information, it gives information a meaning and such meaning might or might not be linked to a particular emotion.
