Your EQ

While waiting for one of my teenagers to come home from a football game, I tuned in to a panel of brain specialists on Larry King Live.  They discussed research on a broad range of areas related to our brains.  Near the end, Larry asked, "what is it that makes one brain smarter than another?"  Each had a specific answer, however, I liked what one of the panelists said about the importance of taking care of our brains.  The choices we make lead to positive or negative consequences for our brains.

"The smartest brains are the ones that figure out unique ways to build stronger relationships with others", one of the scientists said.  "Your EQ (emotional quotient) determines just how effective you are at getting along with others.  It is even more important than your IQ.  What you choose to feed your brain impacts this."

I am going to study this in greater detail.  It fits in with what Jesus one another as you love yourself.  In order to do this well, we need to understand our own brains, how trauma can cause the brain to function below it's potential.  We need to learn the importance of taking care of our brains and the bodies they are attached to.  What is your EQ?  Are you ready to reach your brain's potential?  It starts with the desire to understand what your brain needs to be your best...
