Downsizing Your Ego

A few years ago, a very wise friend was telling me what he thought about a new leader. I will never forget this statement; he said, “When I first met him, I thought he was the most humble person I had ever met. Now 6 months later, he might have the biggest ego of anyone I know!”

 

Do you know someone like that? They appear to be humble because they are able to disguise it well. However, below the surface, they have an ego that needs to be downsized. The following are characteristics of a person who needs to work on their ego. Check yourself to see if you need to work on downsizing!

 

  • You have superficial relationships

 

  • You tend to resist transparency

 

  • Deep down you really feel insecure

 

  • You want to be the center of attention

 

  • You want to be in control

 

  • You cannot admit mistakes

 

  • You do not receive negative feedback well
