Ego Errors: What You Need to Know to Avoid Them

There's nothing more uncomfortable (but totally freaking needed) than calling out our own BS.

To be honest there is probably about a million things more uncomfortable but I'm going to be honest - I can put up with a lot of pain, undesirable situations and general inconvenience but there's a special consideration given to the circumstances that require us to own up when we're not in integrity.

And so, today we are going to talk about Ego.

Ego isn't a bad word by the way, and for the most part it's just doing it's role in keeping us safe and sane.

However it has this effect where it blinds us to what might be best for us because Ego's priority is not rocking the boat above all else.

My Ego has told me a lot of shit:

  • Don't take their advice.

  • What do they know anyway?

  • It's too late for you to learn that.

  • You'll look stupid if you try.

  • I'm not going to apologise first.

  • I need it to work out exactly like this.

  • I'll never do it as good as them so what's the point?

These phrases might sound familiar to you too.

Take a moment to identify which ones resonate with you and even write down some of your own.

Knowledge is power - but it's more powerful if we use it. So let's take it a step further.

What has that Ego stopped you from having, doing, experiencing or attaining?

Because that's the real Ego Error. What's lost along the way.

If you're anything like me you might have convinced yourself that the sacrifice was worth it - or even that nothing was lost at all. We both know that's not true.

When your Ego keeps you from pursuing your dreams - it's not worth it.

When your Ego convinces you to stop trying - it's not worth it.

When your Ego blames everyone else and names you powerless - it's not worth it.

When your Ego makes nothing good enough - it's not worth it.

When your Ego says too old, too late, too much, too bad...and you listen - it's not worth it.

It takes a lot of courage listen to your Self rather than listen to your Ego. And you're more than capable of making this choice.

I want to give you a simple process so right now - today - you can get some clarity and some structure around how to handle your potential Ego Errors.

#1 Identify them

Take some time to journal what habitually trips your Ego and the type of language it likes to use. You will see patterns and particular stories begin to crop up. #2 Prepare for them

I find it helpful to know how to disrupt my Ego thinking. Brainstorm 3 or more different ways that you can change your state when your Ego arises. From moving your body, saying affirmations to pulling a tarot card for guidance.

#3 Forgive them

You, your Guides and the Universe are not out to get you. Take some time to apply love, compassion and forgiveness to yourself and the situation. You've not done anything wrong, you're just trying to cope in the best way you've learnt how.

As you complete these activities you'll notice that some parts are easier to understand and easier to work on than others. If you desire a guide and a helping hand through this process - and it is a process - then you might be ready to work with me on a deeper level.
