Mastering Your Ego
YOU CAN'T LET YOUR EGO RUN THE SHOW.
You might be consumed by your ego and not even know it.
It can be a powerful tool or the cause of your downfall.
You need to recognize it, be aware of it, laugh at it, and finally work together with your ego to be your best self.
Break the bonds of your ego.
Otherwise, when will you ever be enough?
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I’ve created a mashup on this topic featuring three people who have learned to work with their ego, not for it: Taye Diggs, Ryan Holiday, and Justin Baldoni.
Taye Diggs is an actor and singer who is known for his roles on Broadway, TV, and Film. Ryan Holiday is the bestselling author of books about marketing, culture, and the human condition. His company, Brass Check, has advised companies such as Google, TASER, and Complex, as well as multi-platinum musicians and some of the biggest authors in the world. Justin Baldoni is an actor, director, and filmmaker who currently plays Rafael Solano on the award-winning show Jane the Virgin.
These men have all experienced success in their careers, but they have to constantly work on keeping a healthy ego so that they do not self-destruct. It’s a daily battle.
