The Emotional Intelligence Song (3 minutes & 30 seconds long) is upbeat and motivational for anyone interested in emotional intelligence! A cleverly written and strikingly well produced song created for EII as a fundraiser to support the on-line program. Emotional intelligence (E.I.) is helping us learn to monitor our minds and manage emotions better - to think and act in healthier ways. Limited understanding about our minds, emotionally, causes many problems that disrupt the quality of our lives. When we know that what we're feeling, thinking, saying or doing is not healthy and we are able to stop and control ourselves, we're improving our EI. By making healthy sense of our feelings, it helps improve how we structure our attitudes, motivate ourselves, and qualify healthy behavior. It empowers us in every realm of our lives. Better understanding can reduce everyday frustrations, depression, dysfunctions and half-hearted efforts. In society, EI can reduce neglect, abuse, divorce and other family problems as well as crime, unemployment, accidents, illness, wastefulness and world tension. By realizing that the number one consideration of a civilized society is the credibility of behavior, it helps us recognize the importance of furthering such education. The Emotional Intelligence Song was created for the Emotional Intelligence Institute (EII) as a fundraiser to support the cost of it's on-line free program - to help people improve their EQ. The song's income will also be used to finance the annual Emotional Intelligence (EI) Awareness Month campaign in October each year. The campaign is coordinated by the institute, a non-profit organization.
