November 26 is your birthday
It is also the date of the establishment of Six Seconds Japan.
We entered the ninth year of our activities in Japan.
We are happy to celebrate today together.
Greetings from Daruvar/Croatia
We are the Golubić Family. Six Seconds matters to us because people and the world are suffering, so we need people EVERYWHERE to connect and support a future for all!!
Happy Birthday Anabel!!!
This is David & Alice from Columbia, SC and Six Seconds has given us tools for binding up some of the wounds of a broken world and connecting with others in significant ways. Meeting you, hearing your story, and sharing in your wisdom has been a big part of our journey with EQ and inspired us to show up in ways we might not have otherwise.
You’ve made a difference in our lives and we hope that you will have many more years to make a difference in the lives of those all around you.
I’m Maria from California, and emotional intelligence has helped me learn how to feel. Growing up in a culture that didn’t teach me how to talk about or navigate emotions, I learned to stuff them down and suppress them. I thought showing emotion (other than happiness) meant failure. It’s a hard and bumpy road away from that ingrained pattern, but I’m learning slowly how rewarding and safe it can be to show who I really am… no matter how I’m feeling. Thank you to Anabel for helping to create this NEW culture where people can feel empowered to show who they really are and how they really feel.
Happiest 80th Birthday Anabel!!! I am using the work of Six Seconds to create more inclusive cultures in organizations through the development of courageous leaders. I’m also on the Board of Play for Peace, a non-profit whose global footprint is inspired by their mission to to bring together children, youth, and organizations in communities affected by conflict , using cooperative play to create laughter, compassion, and peace.
I’m Angela from Australia and practicing and sharing the power of EQ has helped me live into my purpose to unlock the greatness within us all, to create positive change.

Hi, I’m Abigail from London and Six Seconds matters to me because parents need to connect more with their children in order to raise a generation of caring / loving people who look out for each other.
Six Seconds matters to me because it has taught me it’s so simple to live a happy and healthy life when you practice EQ every day. I want to spread this EQ learning to maximum people – children, adults and elders so the world can become a happy and safe place for everyone.

I’m Lynette from Ohio, and Six Seconds matters to me because I see everywhere the need for connection. Practicing emotional intelligence helps each of us attend to our own needs so that we can look for common ground and connect with others, and that is so needed in our world today!
I’ve learnt a lot about the importance of identifying and handling emotions from six seconds , in a world where emotions are often less important. Right now I’m using cards to help my two yr old grand daughter identify fear, then covering it with the umbrella of God’s care so that the face that peeps out now is no longer anxious but smiling!
Last night she had an ear ache. So when better we talked about what can help a face in pain

I have joined lately Six Seconds and I am amazed to see that the vision you had in mind a quarter of a century ago is spreading like an extraordinary fire and reaching so many people in so many countries. I wish you a wonderful 80th Birthday, and I also wish I could be with you at your 100th Birthday in order to witness the one billion people practicing Emotional Intelligence.
This is the best thing that could help humanity in its fundamental evolution.

I am Shailaja Khan from Dubai and feel blessed that I participated in a Six Seconds EQ Cafe in April this year. It was here that the vision for 2030 impacted me. Then, after completing Unlocking EQ, I began understanding my emotions and making an effort to be in the moment; remind myself that I need to respond calmly.
Wishing you wonderful celebrations at Six Seconds,
– Shailaja, Dubai
Anabel, “Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Anabel, Happy birthday to you!”
I continue to be inspired by Six Seconds and what you are achieving with emotional intelligence in the world. With gratitude, from Ann R, UK
We’re Sarah and Azim from Saudi Arabia! EQ has helped us become more mindful of our patterns, taught us more on emotional literacy and self navigation!
I “Sarah” have been practicing with my baby and husband at home and spreading awareness at work as well.
Happy 80th BD Anabel and thank u for making what matters a global event

Hi, This is Mithila from India.
Practising EQ has brought in more awareness- about myself and others, more peace, more harmony and more balance in my personal ecosystem.
And the most beautiful part – I realise that my ecosystem is simply growing, adding so many more people day by day!
I am Francesca from Italy, and Emotional Intelligence helps myself and the world heal.
Day by day, it adds color, love and meaning to my life.
I am Kelli Tebbe and it has been my pleasure to work with you Anabel towards this goal. Having you and Six Seconds in my life has changed my perspective and priorities towards becoming more optimistic and building stronger connections and relationships. This is your legacy that I plan to continue to hand down to the many students, teachers, and other adults I work with daily. This picture is from our first CPSEL trip and my first time in Baltimore.
Happy Happy Happy!
Anabel, may the next two decades be filled with chocolate, optimism, and many many people practicing EQ so accountability & compassion so that ethical decisions will flood the globe.
For people who might be wondering… what this post is about… Dr. Anabel Jensen is the President of Six Seconds. Here is the story of how Anabel’s wish for her 100th birthday catalyzed a transformation of Six Seconds’ vision and strategy.
To learn more about the vision and how you can join, check out this intro to the EQ community.
Anabel, we didn’t have many chances to meet each other in person. Anyway, your presence was and is for me always clear.
Happy birthday Anabel! I look forward to your 100th birthday celebration. I think higher EQ is what we need in most organisations today, we have a long way to go, but Six Seconds is doing a great job in leading the way.
All the best,
Happy and healthy long life, Anabel!!! I found purpose in life to promote EQ and spread peace.
Peace & Joy!

I hear your voice of compassion and accountability everyday and will endeavor to secure it in all corners of the community. Bravo Anabel, Happy Birthday!
– Todd, US
I am sending you lots of love and HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Austria!!
I would like to THANK YOU for being the inspiration in person, a role model of ‘walking the talk’ of EQ . Over the past 12 years, your strong believe in Exercise Optimism has taught me so much and clearly practiced this especially in challenging situations – and these days I can hear my son’s using the same words Being part of the 6seconds family and 6seconds work matters a lot to me because I see, feel and hear how it impacts people in a positive way – and surely starts with ourselves.
Sending best wishes for a wonderful birthday with lots of celebration! Warmly, Maria
HBD Anabel. Enjoy – God bless you, your family & friends @ Six Seconds and beyond. Without EQ my life would be meaningless. I will have no reason to get out of Bed in the morning.
