IQ is an intelligence score that if you score 160 or over you would be considered a genius. Most people have an average IQ that falls within the range of 90-109. I don’t know my IQ, but I do not expect it to be on a genius level. I consider myself to have average intelligence. On the other hand, my emotional intelligence, which is the ability to maintain my emotions under pressure, is extremely high. Here’s how I do it
Every morning I wake up around 3-4 am and do the same or a similar routine to keep me grounded and to ensure a positive mindset throughout the day. My morning routine consists of reading, journal writing, praying, some exercise, some meditation, and goal setting or goal review. I get up early and maintain a routine because it is beneficial to me maintaining a high level of emotional intelligence in the real estate industry.
Avoid Difficult People
Emotional intelligence is the fantastic ability to be steady under pressure. Difficult people, especially in real estate, can leave you flustered and annoyed. This can ruin an entire day, week, or month. As I mentioned earlier, I’m not that smart. However, I have suffered so much hardship in my life, and I have overcome extreme illness, poverty, despair, and loss. I did it by avoiding difficult people and negative people.
As a real estate entrepreneur, you can choose where and with whom you work. If it’s more of an uphill battle to get along or to begin a transaction with a challenging prospect, it’s best to walk away and end the relationship. Your emotional intelligence is more important than any amount of money. This mindset also goes for family and friends. If they are toxic, you should love at a distance.
Have a millionaire mindset
Millionaires do not have high IQ’s on average. Most are just ordinary people who have high emotional intelligence. They do not stress over minor problems, keep going no matter what, are flexible, and can adapt to change quickly. They avoid watching television, especially the news, and they read an excessive number of books. Acquire millionaire mindsets to help you stabilize your emotions while working in the real estate industry.
In conclusion, maintaining a high level of emotional intelligence is not difficult to do; it can change your life and help you succeed in real estate.
