Combatting the ego


Recommended Posts

“You are going to face challenges if you want to get to your Mount Everest.”

Throughout this video from Motivation District, viewers are encouraged to subside their egos and drown out the dominant messaging of mainstream culture. The main messaging of today is that growth is defined by constant happiness, sunshines, and rainbows. This assumption neglects the truth and the values that are learned through times of hardship. Everything that happens if for good, your growth, and is designed to help you burn away your ego. As we start to widdle away at our ego, we can then become more intimate with our authenticity.

The narrator views times of suffering as times of prospoerity, encouraging his audience to develop an appreciation of adversity and love of tragedy. The narrator also encourages his viewers to imagine themselves detached from all outcomes and how brave they will be if they did so. By doing this, they will still feel joy and peace no matter the tragedy or victory. The sercret to learning the power of letting go is rooted in this understanding that everything happens to you is for your growth. By letting go, the trivalities that we once deemed catastrophic begin to feel more insignificant. Difficult things - no matter the size - should make you stronger, wiser, tougher, and more creative, not discouraged or angered. 

The narrator also emphasizes the importance of own each and every morning. Once you do this, your life will be elevated. Some simple steps to win the morning include: 

  • Getting up at the first sound of your alarm
  • Making your bed
  • Meditating or setting the stage for your day
  • Moving a little

Routines are only as successful as the disciplined the individual is. Through routine, we can start to see our lives in a new light and gain a competitive advantage. Waking up between 5 and 6 in the morning gives you time to work on yourself, your mindset, your “heartset.” Connecting with your cause gives you a clearer vision of who you are and allows you to be steadfast through everyday challenges. 

This video is a great watch for those looking to develop their discipline and routines, diminish their egos, and learning to let go. This video can be accessed below:
