Do you have an ego problem? A few years ago I had an argument with my wife, Sally and I was challenged by how my ego was actually making things worse. But, before we get to that, what do we actually mean by ego?

When we talk of someone having an ego, we’re more than just stating a fact and we’re certainly not offering them a compliment! The truth is we all have an ego. On our quest for wisdom why can ego cause such great problems in our own lives and the lives of others? Is there such a thing as a healthy amount of ego? If so we will need much wisdom to get that balance right!

On this podcast do join my cohost Elliott Frisby and I as we discuss:

  • How do I use my ego to help rather than hinder me?
  • How ego is a problem both when I think too much and also too little of myself.
  • Why the most dangerous thing in the world is unhealthy pride.
  • What healthy pride looks like.
  • The connection between a healthy ego and our toes!
  • How do I develop the wisdom to recognise when my ego is getting out of control?
  • When following an argument with my wife Sally I was challenged about my ego problem.
  • What healthy ego can look like.

Life’s challenges can diminish, define or develop you. Which will it be? The choice is yours through wisdom. Make sure you choose the right one.
