If you are having this mix then ‘Beware’.
There is a thin line between egotism and confidence. You need enough self esteem to perform at the best level and MTH (Making Things Happen). If you are really true to your inner power and need to realise true potential, ego can be a too small matter for you. You have to be master in your own house and to be master you have to reach to the fullest level of potentials. Master never lives in the house of ego.
“Whenever I climb, I am followed by a dog-EGO.” Said German philosopher F. Nietzsche. Ego can stop you to reach to your true potential. When you reach to your potential level, you start growing and success comes in front of you. As the success stands in front of you, from the back side unconsciously Ego takes the entry. Ego becomes the biggest enemy of your character. It will burn only when you die unless you know the ways to free yourself from ego.
Ego brings negativity and cultivates desires in you which lead you to arrogance. “A lot of my work has to do with not allowing my characters to have an ego in a way that the stomach doesn’t have an ego when it wants to throw up. It just does it.” Quotes Matthew Barney. You must know the trick how to throw ego out of your life. My strong observation for Bollywood and Hollywood actresses and actors are that they live and die with ego. They live with false impression that talent always carry ego to survive, which is supported by an actress Tom Lehrer, “An actress must never lose her ego – without it she has no talent.”
Leaders never bring ego too close to them. As the power goes off, ego also goes off. Everlasting leaders never allow ego to come closer. Colin Powel said very profoundly, “Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.”
It is very difficult to be ego free. Love and simplicity are the tools of compass to have success. You cannot be free from negativity but then also be full of positivity. World cannot be free from darkness but we should light the lamp at all places. Similarly, world cannot be free from ego but we should be full of love and simplicity. Ego never enters in the house of simplicity.
You can have strategy to reach to your true potentials of; BE SIMPLE AND FULL OF LOVE. The quest for MTH (Making Things Happen) is at the heart of life.
