Stop getting offended: Stop getting offended. The behavior of others isn't a reason to get upset. Your ego is working to convince you that the world should be how you want it to be. Christopher Hitchens says: "Those who are determined to be 'offended' will discover a provocation somewhere."
You dont need to win all the time: You don't need to win all the time. Your ego loves to divide the world into winners and losers, but this is not true. Someone out there right now is faster, younger, healthier, and smarter than you. Does that make you a loser? Of course not. Don't let your ego make you feel worthless or insignificant. Because you are not.
Know when to stop: Your ego will never be satisfied no matter how much you achieve or acquire. You'll find yourself in a perpetual state of striving and reaching for a new end-goal, making it so you never truly reach your goals.
You not your reputation or achievements: Your ego will never be satisfied no matter how much you achieve or acquire. You'll find yourself in a perpetual state of striving and reaching for a new end-goal, making it so you never truly reach your goals.
You are not right all the time: Letting go of your need to be right is very powerful. Even letting people win, even when you know they are wrong. Ask yourself: – Is it a big issue? - Will it matter in 5 mins? If the answer is "NO," back down and move on. You save yourself so much energy and can focus on more important things.
Dont be superior: Authentic leadership isn't about being better than someone else. It's about being better than YOU used to be. Stay focused on your growth, be humble, and help others.
