(Newswire.net — January 19, 2014) Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey — Emotional intelligence sparks Optimism in Business.


Human beings are naturally optimistic. Irrespective of the challenge, leaders will always find a way to make progress and to make things work. This is a natural competence of emotional intelligence. It serves us well to remember that the global collective consciousness determines the global reality.

Our thinking determines the attitude of the mind. The mind is creative, and all conditions, environment, all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude. It is known from neuroscience and neuropsychology that the secret of all power, achievement and possession depends on the method of our thinking.


The global downturn appears to be reversing with a number of economists stating that green shoots are appearing in the global economy, although some countries are growing faster than others.

Reading the global news, you will see that it is anticipated that 2014 may be the year that entrepreneurs and company chief executives decide finally to put their hard cash behind investment plans.


“Britain’s non-financial companies have about £500bn sitting on their balance sheets, having spent the downturn paying down debt, and many are now ready to take the plunge.”

“Three times as many people are optimistic about the British economy in the year to come than when they were asked 24 months ago.”


The British National Federation of Independent Businesses latest index highlights – small business optimism ended the year slightly up from November at 93.9, but below the previous 3 mid-year readings of over 94 and 6 points below the pre-recession average.


“In New Zealand Business optimism is at a 20-year-high with firms planning to invest more and hire more staff, the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research says. Its quarterly survey of business opinion for the December quarter showed businesses were the most optimistic since June 1994. The survey found 52 per cent were optimistic, up from 33 per cent in the September quarter last year. It also showed 15 per cent of domestic firms reported increased trading activity, up from 12 per cent in September and the highest since March 2005.”


If you were reading The Wall Street Journal 28 August 2013 you would have read: “New Flash of Optimism for Small – Business Owners. Small-business optimism surged in July and August to some of the highest levels since the recession started, according to a handful of recent surveys”.

Wall Street Journal continued – “A quarterly small-business optimism index from Wells Fargo and Gallup also reached its highest level since the third quarter of 2008.”


Some economist take issue with the optimism data but what cannot be ignored is that it is a universal principle that what you focus on will expand. If you think you can, the mind will find circumstances and situations to bring about your success. If you think you can’t, you will draw that energy into your consciousness to become a self-fulfilling prophecy.


“The optimist says the glass is half full. The pessimist says the glass is half empty. The engineer says the glass is twice as large as it needs to be.”

As an entrepreneur develop your resilience to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you true to the best that is in you.
