Lets face it, our ego gets on the way of pretty much everything we do every day. To be successful at something, you need to believe in your self. To believe in your self, the ego comes into play. But at the same time, the ego get on the way of learning, or even more so on the way of executing what you have learned. Ever noticed a situation where you have been given some advice, and you dismiss it? Then you run into the same advice over and over again? Eventually you give in and take on the advice. Few months later as that advice actually seems to work, you are kicking your self for not following it in the first place? That is you ego holding you back.
Don’t let your ego tell you, you know the best. You don’t! I’ve been there several times… Only when you harness your ego, and douse it with a bit of humility, will start to make progress. Sure it takes balls to get up on the stage and perform in front of an audience, but if you let your ego creep in and start to take your audience for granted, they will eat you alive in a matter of seconds. Be humble and harness your ego, take control of it and use it to your advantage.
