Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good.

Ego let go

It is one of the most difficult things you can do. And yet, it is very simple, easy and effortless.

It is one of the most powerful things you can do. And yet, when you do it you give up the need and the desire for power.

What is it? It is letting go of your own ego.

When you can bring yourself to get beyond your own ego, you raise yourself to a whole new level of awareness, experience and effectiveness. When you can think, live and act unconstrained by the limitations of your ego, the possibilities are truly endless.

Your worries, your fears, your doubts, anxieties, disappointments and hesitation to move forward are all sustained by your ego. Imagine the power of leaving all those limitations behind.

Spend a few minutes, a few hours, or an entire day unconcerned about what others will think, or what’s in it for you, or whether something offends you or not. Feel the freedom, delight in the ability to accomplish, and explore possibilities that you may never before have even known about.

Once you decide to let go of your ego, it’s a very simple thing to do. And it will truly change your world for the better.
