Become Unstoppable

Research shows that over 58% of your performance in life is directly related to your emotional intelligence and over 90% of top performers have a high emotional intelligence.

Any goal or change pursuit is a massive challenge. You must not only overcome the hurdles of the actual performance, but you must also conquer any internal obstacles such as self-doubt, impostor syndrome, or emotional intelligence deficiencies.

In this presentation, Rich Bracken shares the key differentiators of top performers and industry juggernauts combined with ways that you can leverage emotional intelligence to achieve long-term success and resilience when pursuing your goals.

Soundtrack for Success

Emotional intelligence has proven to be one of the most critical habits to have for personal and professional success and happiness. However, with only 15% of people possessing higher levels of emotional intelligence, most are not tuned in to themselves and need to turn up the volume for a successful soundtrack.

The most effective way to enhance your EQ is to engage in regular habits that strengthen the communication between the rational mind and the emotional mind. This is also similar to the effect that music has on our mood, motivation, and emotions.
