Think about a kid who is adamant and does not listen to his parents at all.
Think about a husband who doesn’t respect or care enough for his wife or family.
Think about two co workers having a conflict about who is right.
Think about a person who is not willing to receive new ideas or suggestions.
We all can run into difficult situations with other people. We may say…some people have a huge ego. We may even say…we don’t get along with those people, because of their ego.
We ourselves sometimes carry a huge ego over little things.
Now think of it this way…
Name a person who has traveled to all countries of the world, knows all languages, all cultures, all scientific, geographic and theoretical facts that exist for every entity in the world. Name a person who is “liked by everyone” in the entire world.
“Such a person does not exist and can probably never exist.”
Nobody knows “everything”. We all have scope for learning and growing. We all CAN learn a little more than what we know today. We have limited time (life) to get unlimited knowledge.
Then, What’s the point of having any ego? What can we possibly be proud of or egoistic about?
Are we proud of the incomplete knowledge that we have? Are we proud of being liked by a few people in the world? Are we egoistic about knowing more than others? ….knowing more than everyone on the planet?
Think….. what kind of thoughts “ego” feeds in your mind. Think if ego “helps” in any way. Think if being “humble” is all that matters.
Ego stops you from learning, growing, achieving because it gives you the misconception that you are right, “always” and that “you” know more than others.
Don’t let ego stop you from growing. It’s not worth it!
LET GO of EGO….
