 Story Keep your emotions under control



Some people are born with high levels of emotional intelligence, but most of us have to work at it. The ability to keep emotions in check during stressful situations can really make or break your career. 


Flipping out and yelling at your boss will likely get you fired. Even if you manage to retain your job, the incident will always be in the back of your co-worker’s minds, and your boss will recall the outburst when it comes time for promotions.


It’s important to pay attention to signs of stress and anxiety. Knots in your stomach or the inability to sleep may indicate that stress is building up.


 Being aware of this buildup can help you to take a step back from the situation and assess your options for a reaction.
