Emotions arise within ourselves - through our complex brain circuitry that we sometimes call 'wiring.' No one else is responsible for our emotions - we own them, and we must be aware of them in order to manage them, recognize them in others, and develop relationships. When you are intelligent about your emotions, you're aware that the hardest work is managing the emotions that get in the way of your best performance.

Probably the most essential skill involved in Emotional Intelligence is self-management. It usually rides on the tail of self-awareness.when you notice an emotion. What can happen is that an emotional response takes on a life of its own, gets hijacked, or snowballs into a reaction that is difficult to control. With self-management skills, you nip it in the bud and control the inward interpretations and outward behaviors associated with strong emotions.
