Just like you, I am interested,
even fascinated, by the tremen-
dous potential hidden in each
and every one of us.
Just like you, I am certain that
my inner world is at least as fas-
cinating as the outer one, and
that by discovering it I gain
access to another quality of life.
Just like you, I am searching for a
way to balance my body, mind,
and emotions, in order to live
more fully and more happily.
Just like you, I am looking for the
best inspiration and guidance
from those who already explored
this emotional realm.
And just like you, I am more
interested in HOW to connect to
my emotions, as in WHY they are
so powerful and meaningful.
Based on my decade-long practice
of coaching, with individuals,
families and organizations, I
selected 32 main concepts having
the strongest impact on emotion-
al competencies:
Ambition
Anger
Blame
Care
Change
Courage
Difficulties
Emotions
Experience
Failure
Family
Fear
Forgiveness
Freedom
Generosity
Happiness
Hope
Imagination
Joy
Kindness
Life
Love
Past/Future
Peace
Perfection
Presence
Self-Awareness
Self-Confidence
Self-Control
Self-Respect
Simplicity
Stress
Wisdom
Each of those is illustrated by a
picture, worthing 1000 words, as
well as by a series of quotes. Those
were selected especially according
to their capacity of giving you
practical clues. Therefore, the
quotes are originated not from
the usual mainstream emotion-
al intelligence authors, but from
thinkers, writers, scientists and
artists from all cultures and ages,
having a good connection with
their emotional wisdom.
Even if they are not quoted, the
giants of E.I. such as professors
Peter Salovey and Jack Meyer, dr.
Reuven BarOn or dr. Daniel
Goleman, or Joshua Freedman,
are always present behind the
lines, guiding you with their pro-
found wisdom and empathy.
I choose to use pictures of chil-
dren because they are closer to
their emotions than adults, and
also more open to express their
own feelings. It is well known
that even if emotional intelli-
gence is developing during our
entire life, as an accumulation of
wisdom and maturity, its foun-
dation is set in childhood and
early adolescence.
Therefore, week after week, let
your inner child resonate with
the one(s) in the picture, in order
to reconnect with the experience
of the illustrated concept.
Read the quotes and allow them
to shutter your beliefs and self-
image. Most of them are para-
doxical, because the emotional
logic is perceived as paradoxical
by our rational mind. But the
moment when the two sorts of
logic combine, they lead us to a
deeper experience of reality, to a
better connection with both inner
and outer worlds.
During your daily activities, look
for opportunities either to experi-
ence this new way of thinking
and feeling, or to express more
freely the emotion of the week.
Discover what changes in your
efficiency, wellness, charisma,
peace, or happiness. Discover new
ways of dealing with the others:
family, friends, customers, co-
workers, neighbors. Feel more,
understand more, do more.
By keeping a diary, it will be eas-
ier to notice the subtle changes
occurring in your life, and con-
nect them with a specific concept
or practice. Write down any rele-
vant association among your
thoughts, emotions and actions.
And, if you have around friends
or relatives also wanting to devel-
op their emotional potential,
share with themall your findings
and successes.
May the Emotional Force be with
you!
Daniel Bichis,
The emotional frontier is truly the next frontier to conquer in human understanding. The opportunity we face now, even before that fron-
tier is fully explored and settled, is to develop our emotional potential and accelerate rather dramatically into a new state of being.

The essentials to happiness are something to love, some-

William Blake
Happiness is not in our circumstance but in ourselves. It
is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the
heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are.

Through forgiveness, the wrong is released from its emotion-

This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose
recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of
nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clot of ailments

Condemnation does not liberate, it presses.
C. G. Jung
As you sincerely go for deeper levels of love, the results
you'll have in well-being and increased quality of life will
motivate you, leading you to a wider dimensional aware-
ness. The results are so rewarding you can easily develop
a passion for self-management. - Sara Paddison
Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel
a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.

Man's mind once stretched by a new idea, never regains
its original dimension.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Imagination is a quality given a man to compensate him
for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to
console him for what he is.
Oscar Wilde
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that
a new world is born.

If we are incapable of finding peace in ourselves, it is
pointless to search elsewhere.
Franois de la Rochefoucauld
You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can
be at peace unless he has his freedom.
Malcolm X

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a
humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you
cannot be successful or happy
Norman Vincent Peale
Having once decided to achieve a certain task, achieve it
at all costs of tedium and distaste. The gain in self-confi-
dence of having accomplished a tiresome labor is
immense.
Arnold Bennett
Attempt easy tasks as if they were difficult, and difficult
as if they were easy; in the one case that confidence may
not fall asleep, in the other that it may not be dismayed.
