Ego Is the Enemy
“Your potential, the absolute best you’re capable of—that’s the metric to measure yourself against. Your standards are. Winning is not enough. People can get lucky and win. People can be assholes and win. Anyone can win. But not everyone is the best possible version of themselves.”
The book is a practical guide and a thought-starter about one's character and how becoming a good and high-performing individual is often challenged by our own ego.
1. Once you believe that you are (almost) always right, you miss out on the opportunity to learn and to be creative.
2. You are dominated by your ego if you need constant validation and recognition from others.
3. Surround yourself with people who challenge you and who think differently than you, instead of people who just agree with everything you say and tell you what you want to hear.
