Overcome the Ego's Power Over You.

Hyderabad: 6 Jan 2023: 1. Stop being Offended:
Only the Ego is offended. The stronger the ego, the more fragile the person will be, as they tend to be more susceptible to being hit by criticism from others. Decrease the size of the target and lessen the work of the arrows.
2. Release the need to Win:
The ego loves to feed the illusion of competition. He loves to divide us into winners and losers. Usually this overwhelming need to want to compete with other people is linked to low self-esteem where the person believes they need to compete with others to be able to ''prove their worth''.
Your worth is not measured by what you have or how successful you are, but by what you carry in your heart. So don't want to compete with the other person. If someone wants to compete with you for something, let them win. Let go of any need to want to compete or control any situation. Just do your best with what you can do at the moment.
3. Let go of the need to be right:
The ego hates to admit it is wrong. It's better to die than to admit you're wrong. The ego does not like to ''lose''. For him, admitting he is wrong is the same as handing over his ''power'' to the other person.
The ego doesn't like to apologize either, as it believes it's always right in the situation. Such stubbornness and arrogance only ends up harming even more the evolution of the person himself.
Admitting you are wrong is not a sign of weakness, but of humility and maturity. Recognizing that you won't always be right is the first step to wisdom. Remember that in life we ​​are each other's masters and apprentices.
4. Let go of the need to be superior:
True nobility isn't about being better than someone else, it's about being better than you used to be. Stay focused on your inner growth with the awareness that no one in this life is better than the other. We are all equal endowed with different capacities and potentials. Each one has its importance to the universe.
5. Let go of the need for more:
The ego's mantra is "more". The ego is never satisfied with what it has. No matter how much he gets or acquires, he will always feel that it is not enough. This will keep him in a perpetual state of striving for things that may never come.
Learning to be grateful for what you already have is the first step in breaking free of this conditioning. Everything you need starts to come to you naturally from the moment you stop this search for wanting to get more.
6. Let go of your Reputation:
Your reputation doesn't depend on you, it resides in other people's minds. Thus, you have no control over how others will see you. If you talk to 30 people, you will have 30 different reputations.
Therefore, abandon this idea of ​​\u200b\u200b"reputation". Don't worry about being well seen or spoken of poorly by other people. Do not attach too much importance to this. Go back inside yourself and try to live simply. Be honest. Be true. Be authentic. Be yourself! If you do, you'll see that people who like you will like you for what you are and not for what you ''appeared'' to be.
