Dec. 13 – Daily Reflection

If you let your head get too big it’ll break your neck.

– Elvis Presley

Having confidence vs. having an ego

Having confidence in your abilities is an important part of life. But how do you know when you’re crossing the line into building an ego? Someone who is always bragging about himself not only sours the relationships with those around him, but also develops his actions into a pattern that is hard to reverse. Do you alienate people around you with your ego? Have you crossed the line of confidence to egotistical? Instead of bragging about your accomplishments, discuss how you got there or the people that helped you along the way. This way you can share your success in an endearing way without making it all about you. Take the focus off of yourself for a moment and think about how your success can be a tool to help others achieve the same.

    Very interesting reflection Randy. I think we all have a different sized line when it comes to being confident & egotistical. Of course I am the greatest of all so now nobody has to worry. Haha j/k. I think a lot of hatred comes from people that desire and need love and when they see somebody happy they feel the lack of what they need so they get angry & turn away from a person. This is definitely a topic for more contemplation.
