Ego Is the Enemy

Title: Ego Is the Enemy

  1. Aspire, wanting to accomplish bigger and better goals.
  2. Success, achieving our goals and receiving public praise.
  3. Failure, falling from grace and dealing with internal resistance.
  1. Too much talking, not enough work.
  2. Do it for the right reasons. Having a goal bigger than us counteracts ego.
  3. Keep learning. In every situation we can learn something.
  4. Be practical, not passionate. Being passionate can lead us to do stupid things. Be calm and calculate your next steps with a clear and objective mind.
  5. Help others. Just like learning, helping others keeps us humble. Having a mindset of abundance will allow you to strive and forge relationships without having to fight your ego.
  6. Restrain yourself. Don’t reply to the haters. Don’t allow your ego to get offended. Endure the pain.
  7. Live in the present. With ambition comes dough. We begin telling ourselves that we don’t have what it takes, that we will fail. Getting out of our head will help us remaining focused in the work and able to learn from its lessons.
  8. Don’t get fancy. Ego turns minor accomplishments into major events. This artificial inflation is simply a delusion. It turns you into a fraud. Stay humble through your work.
  9. Work! While aspiring, the most important thing you can do to fight your ego is to focus on creating value. Sit down and put in the hours. Invest in yourself by thinking long term.
