The Ego Diet: Work hard, stay humble

What replaces ego is humility, rock-hard humility and confidence.

When we remove ego, we are left with what is real.

Ego is stolen. Real confidence is earned.

Ego is self-anointed, its swagger is artifice.

Most successful people are people you have never heard of. They want it that way. It keeps them sober. It helps them do their jobs.

Sometimes you have to keep the good news to yourself. Not everybody wants to see you blessed.

Those who have subdued their ego understand that it does not degrade you when others treat you poorly, it degrades them.

Greatness comes from humble beginnings, it comes from grunt work.

It means you are the least important person in the room, until you change that with results.

Silence. The ability to deliberately keep yourself out of the conversation and subsist without its validation.

Silence is the respite of the confident and the strong.
