Hello there. Welcome to this Henry Stewart Talk on The Power of Thought in Developing Emotional Intelligence. My name is Sunny Faronbi. I'm a certified emotional intelligence coach, speaker, and seminar leader.
Here's an overview of what we are going to be discussing during this session. We will briefly review where emotions come from. This was covered in the very first talk in this series. Next, we'll talk about why our thoughts are important. Then we will discuss how our emotions connects with our thoughts and how to begin taking control of our thoughts. After that, I will share the concept of conscious direction thinking.
But first, let's review where emotions come from. In one of the earliest sessions in this series, we discussed our beliefs. We defined these beliefs as long learned, automatic responses, and establish opinions that were formed over a long period of time. We do not acquire them overnight. We learn them gradually over a long period of time. They are automatic responses because they are the ways we automatically respond to everything that we experience. Actions and words, things that we experience, they are the way we automatically respond to them. You and I are not consciously going around thinking about our experiences and thinking about how we want to respond to them. They are automatic, they are instantaneous. We see something almost immediately we think, "Oh, I love that thing." Or we see some now we say, "I don't like that thing." It's immediate, it's automatic. So this beliefs are long learned, automatic responses, and established opinion. This beliefs are the assumptions we make about ourselves, about other people, about how we expect things to be.
