For all the smart people who want to succeed!

You have recognized yourself in this title? It does not surprise me, but what makes a person succeed his life while another to miss? Is it possible to succeed in life and not be aware of it? Is it possible to miss his life and believe that it has been successful?


For a long time it was believed that IQ guarantee success in life. Dr. Lewis Terman in 1921, has also conducted research that spanned several decades to prove it. He eventually discovered that his hypothesis was not valid. So there is more than the intelligence quotient; there is, among others, emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is the size of our intelligence which is responsible for the way we conduct ourselves and how we manage our interactions with others. It is emotional intelligence that can transform a professional relationship into a friendship. This is also your emotional intelligence that makes you able to convey to those around you a common purpose or that allows you to quickly lift the spirit of a person who needs it greatly.

Daniel Goleman, a world specialist in Emotional Intelligence, argues that success in life is based on 10 or 15% on the IQ and the rest is due to luck and emotional intelligence. He also explained that the higher up in an organization and more important the emotional intelligence becomes.
