Not about you

Much of what feels like frustration is just your ego being wounded. Tamp down your ego, and the frustration goes away.

A great deal of the anger that immobilizes you is just your ego asserting itself. Let go of your ego’s directives, and free yourself from the grip of anger.

Whenever anything gets you down, or fills you with doubt, with hesitation, is it really you who is dejected and hesitant? Or is it your ego’s inflated sense of self?

There are times and circumstances when your ego can offer valuable perspective. But it’s never a good idea to let your ego control your every move.

How do you step away from the destructiveness of your ego? Simply remind yourself, whatever you’re doing, wherever you are, that it’s not about you.

Rise above the debilitating effects of envy, anger, frustration, apprehension, humiliation, and more. Empower yourself by reminding yourself, it’s not about you.

— Ralph Marston
