In this week’s episode, Kaivan reflects on an incident when Gaurav told him that his ego would eventually kill him. Upon hearing this, Kaivan initially became defensive but did not allow himself to become agitated. Afterward, Kaivan reflected on the conversation and thought about what his ego was to him.

What is an ego to you?

  • You’re self-inflated
  • You think highly of yourself
  • Cannot accept criticism
  • Superficial relationships
  • You’re not letting people in

If you have an ego, your relationships are superficial, you cannot accept criticism and you have an inflated sense of self-worth. It is important to distinguish, as Kaivan states, if you simply have self-confidence instead of ego. Why not believe in yourself, why not fight for more? In order to see if you have an ego or not, ask yourself if you truly believe in yourself. More importantly, be open to criticism from those who truly care about you.
Your goal should be to never question yourself

  • Have self-confidence
  • Be open to criticism
  • Have a lot of self-confidence
  • It’s not your ego, it’s about what you stand for

Figure out if you have an ego, it may just kill you.

If someone corrects you, and you feel offended, you may have an EGO problem!
