ST047 - Why the Ego is the Key to All Personal Development

What is preventing you from living the life of your dreams? From truly connecting with the people around you and fulfilling the emotional experiences you want in life? What role does your ego play in fulfilling your goals, dreams, and deepest desires?

In today’s episode, I discuss what your ego is and how it affects you and your personal development. I explain the true goal of your ego, how it serves as a survival mechanism, and how it impacts your judgment. I share how to identify thoughts that are driven by your ego and how it impacts your feelings about yourself and those around you. I also share three simple strategies you can use to overcome your ego-driven thoughts to live a life of fulfillment, connection, and sustainable happiness.

“Our personal development is just shedding layers of fear-patterning and the ego to become our true selves.” - Nicholas Spohn
