Illuminate: Perfectionism, Pt 1 (1/18/2019) - Perfectionism is the excessive fear of making mistakes. This week, I invite you to pay attention to how perfectionism, or the fear of making mistakes, shows up in your life.
Illuminate: Indulge in Asking Yourself This One Question (1/13/2019) - Empathy is lending our hearts, minds, and souls to others, but how can we give this to ourselves, too? This week's Illuminate challenges us to indulge a bit by asking ourselves one simple question to unlock our heart's deepest desires.
illuminate: can you create a more compassionate world this new year? (1/7/2019) - Emotional intelligence is peeking beneath the surface of an emotion (even anger!) to understand the vulnerability and pain from which the emotion explodes. This Illuminate offers a concrete step for practicing compassion with others whose behaviors cause pain and hurt.
Illuminate: Where Do You Want to Go? (12/15/2018) - Take a moment to clarify your (emotional, professional, physical) destination + represent it in a fun way.
Illuminate: Say What You Need to Say (12/10/2018) - We know words hold power. Maybe this is why it can be so hard to say what really needs to be said. This week's Illuminate will inspire you to say the vulnerable, challenging, and authentic words that you may be holding back.
Illuminate: What Relationship Pattern Holds You Back? (12/1/2018) - Everyone has their own pattern when it comes to relationships. 'Attachment Styles' have been studied in psychology for years, and its wisdom is now starting to find its way into everyday relationships. What's your attachment style, and how can you best work with it?
Illuminate: Navigating Anger toward Wisdom (11/23/2018) - Dive into a beautiful (and true!) story about the power of navigating emotions-- and learn how you can transform anger/sadness/grief/confusion into wisdom about yourself and your life's path.
Illuminate: Share Your Gratitude (11/15/2018) - This week, in the United States, is the holiday of Thanksgiving: a time when people get together, share what they’re thankful for, and eat a lot of turkey. I knew I wanted to focus this week’s Illuminate on gratitude, and one of the activities from this month’s POP-UP Festivals reminded me of one of my favorite activities: writing thank-you notes.

The e-mail series comes from the Six Seconds Network. We’re a global not-for-profit community, working toward a billion people practicing emotional intelligence.

Six Seconds is one of the original pioneers of emotional intelligence. In 1967, our team began learning how to integrate emotional and intellectual development; in 1978 our Self-Science curriculum was published. In 1995, Daniel Goleman wrote about Self-Science as a model process for teaching emotional intelligence. We were founded in 1997 to share this methodology, and now we have certified practitioners working in over 125 countries.
