Improving Emotional Intelligence through Goals Note Include any grant funding information and a complete correspondence address Having good emotional intelligence skills is the backbone of achieving our goals If we set goals but we have poor emotional intelligence such as low self esteem we aren't going to want to set goals or try to achieve them I have set goals over and over and I always fail at them I ve always wondered why I recently figured out the reason behind this was linked to poor emotional intelligence After taking a few classes I have learned a lot about emotional intelligence why it's important and how to control it I have 5 goals I want to achieve and believe these will help me be more emotionally intelligence The first goal would be to stay in school Staying in school is my primary goal to achieve this I can study hard Attend the live sessions and take notes I can reach out to my teacher or the student success center when I need extra help I want to stay on the honor list and the only way to do this is to get good grades Getting good grades mean to study hard and pay attention in class Don't goof off or let distractions get in my way Don't procrastinate and pay attention to deadlines
The only person in charge of my future is me I want to stop letting obstacles stand in my way My second goal is to have hope in school that I will finish and finally graduate and not get discouraged when I don t get such a good grade I study hard and take notes and think I m going to do so good on an assignment but then my grade comes back and I immediately get discouraged and tell myself I am never going to graduate I tell myself over and over I'm a failure and that is hurting me and makes me not want to do my school work My third goal is to be more socially involved I don't have a social media and I don't have any friends I feel alone in this world and when things happen I feel like I m all alone I want to be more socially confident and not so shy when someone talks to me in public The way to be less shy is to put myself into situations where there are a lot of people so I can practice good communication with others The fourth goal is to figure out what I want to do with my life before I graduate I knew I always wanted to go to school and start my own business Figuring out what I want to do after I graduate has been the hardest goal I have I want to do more volunteer work and help people that aren't as fortunate as others
