These 3 words also have a powerful meaning for you if you’ve been struggling with overwork in your law practice.

You have a high expectation for yourself to do and be the very best. When that doesn’t happen, when you don’t accomplish everything you want, there is a tendency to dwell and overthink.

You’ve disappointed yourself and you lose self-esteem.

This is when having high emotional intelligence comes in very handy. Emotional intelligence is about being able to manage your own emotions and those of the people around you.

When you are #EQStrong you have self-awareness and know how to control your emotions. You recognize your own value and worth.

Emotional intelligence enables you to recognize your strengths and your weakness. You are happy to delegate because you understand that it takes courage and confidence to reach out and get help to achieve your goals.

Tiger Woods succeeded, in part, because he has high emotional intelligence. He was willing to accept the help and advice from his caddie. He practiced self-compassion.

You can do the same with your law practice. Be compassionate to yourself. Know that you are more than what you get done in a day.
