All the good you do

Your ego will never be satisfied. Whenever you manage to obtain what it desires, it reacts by wanting more.

That’s an empty, frustrating road you don’t have to go down. At any point you can choose another path.

There’s no need for constantly seeking ways to exhibit how great you are. It’s tiring for you and tiresome to others.

Instead, set about to discover how genuinely good, useful, kind, and encouraging you can be. Seek authentic experiences, connections, relationships that uphold truth at their center.

Ego tempts you with promises of thrills and adulations that it never fully delivers upon. Yet you can resist that temptation with a life of goodness and sustainable quality.

To truly experience satisfaction, stop endlessly chasing it. Instead, allow lasting satisfaction and fulfillment to flow from all the good, kind, and helpful things you do.

— Ralph Marston
