Emotional Intelligence Workshop for Teenagers
16 June 2012
When Thomas Edison – inventor of the Light Bulb – was a boy, his teachers told him he was too stupid to learn anything.
The most significant form of Intelligence we can attain is Emotional Intelligence as this equips us to perform and succeed in all walks of life.
Our young people are losing out on this incredible learning as more and more time is given to “book learning” as schools and our society tend to attribute a person’s worthiness to their level of scholarly achievement.
Yet, time and time again, we hear of entrepreneurs and inventors who have achieved great wealth and success regardless of the formal learning.
Beethoven’s music teacher once said of him, “…as a composer, he is hopeless”.

When we are able to move in the world from a core authenticity and responsibility, we are able to succeed in all endeavors.
