How does EQ and IQ move you from poor to rich and vice versa?
The poorest people have no EQ and no IQ. If you can’t get along with anyone and you can’t solve any problems, you will become poor.
The next richest people have EQ but no IQ. These people can’t solve their problems in life but can make friends and maintain relationships which are the ingredients to happiness and health. So these people are happy and healthy.
The next richest people have IQ but no EQ. These people are wealthy but sad. They can solve their own problems, but no-one likes them.
The richest people have both EQ and IQ. These people are wealthy and happy. They solve their problems and they have meaningful relationships to bring them meaning to life and joy to life.
If you are starting with no EQ and no IQ, you have to pick one to begin with. Which should you pick?
If you start by building EQ, then you will have the emotional stability to do the work to build your IQ.
If you start by building IQ, then you will earn money that you can invest in learning EQ.
The issue with starting to build EQ is that socializing is extremely expensive financially. You need to be well off to have free time and money to make friends. Realistically, if you are starting off poor with no EQ and no IQ, you can only escape poverty through IQ.
I wish you luck. Let’s make it to the top together with both EQ and IQ 🙂
