#Four types of #intelligence

"According to Psychologists, there are four types of Intelligence: 

1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)

1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your level of comprehension. You need IQ to solve maths, memorize things, and recall lessons.

2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others, keep to time, be responsible, be honest, respect boundaries, be humble, genuine and considerate.

3. Social Quotient (SQ): this is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.

People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go further in life than those with a high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize on improving IQ levels while EQ and SQ are played down.

A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ.

Your EQ represents your Character, while your SQ represents your Charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs, especially your EQ and SQ.

Now there is a 4th one, a new paradigm:

4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ): The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life, and come out of it without losing your mind.

When faced with troubles, AQ determines who will give up, who will abandon their family, and who will consider suicide.

Parents please expose your children to other areas of life than just Academics. They should adore manual labour (never use work as a form of punishment), Sports and Arts.

Develop their IQ, as well as their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of their parents.

Finally, do not prepare the road for your children. Prepare your children for the road."

#Separate #Facts from #Problems


*Separate Facts from Problems*

Many negative emotions are triggered by an inappropriate overreaction to an unexpected setback or difficulty.

It is vital that you carefully analyze a problem when it occurs to ensure that you thoroughly understand it and what you can do to deal with it or resolve it.

Make the distinction between a fact and a problem. The difference is simple. A fact is something that is unchangeable

Your age is a fact. The weather is a fact. Certain things just are, They cannot be altered. They are facts.

One of the keys to happiness is to resolve to never become upset or angry about a fact. Just as you do not become angry at physical things, like a piece
of furniture because you bumped into it, you do not become angry or upset about facts. You simply accept them and adjust your life and activities around

What, then, is a problem?

A problem is something you can do something about.
A goal unachieved is a problem unsolved.
An obstacle in your path is a problem unsolved.
You can focus your intelligence and ability on solving problems and achieving goals.
Problems are simply challenges that you deal
with as you go through life.

There are two time periods in your life: the past and the future.
The present is a single moment passing between the two. Into what category of time do we put facts, and into what category do we put problems?

The truth is that most facts that make you unhappy exist in the past.

Something that happened in the past is a fact. It is unchangeable. This is important to understand because many people are miserable and unhappy in
the present because of something that did not work out the way they expected it to sometime in the past.

But because it happened, or didn't happen, in the past, it is now an unchangeable fact. It does no good to be upset about a fact.

A problem exists in the future. A problem is an issue that you can do something about. This is an area where you can focus your intelligence and ability into achieving a different result.
A problem, the future, is under your control, and its outcome is determined by what you do in the present

Separate Facts from Problems & stay blessed forever.
