What is Ego?
Reveal this missing section in our Chapter 1 – Unhappiness of Life Sucks! Book, EGO.
During situation especially when difficulties and pressures involved, people will look into the external factors like their reputation, position, level, and the price to protect themselves. As long as there is a high price to be paid, the mind will try to find many ways to turn situation into their advantage. This will flip the atmosphere and mood of the situation. In the event that we are being corner, our pride will take higher precedence in making decision.
Statements like “Nobody knows better than me”, “I’m right”, “You don’t understand me”, “You have to listen to me”, “Who are you to tell me what to do”, etc. This is called EGO. It is the dead end statement that nobody can argue with it.
Ego mindset is due to pride and will always lead to the situation where we are not open to anything else because we are the only one that knows everything. Learning is non-stop till the end of our life. There is so much for everyone to discover and to learn. Even an adult can learn from a little kid. Parents can learn how to use new devices from their children.
