Coulda let the dream killers, kill my self esteem
Or use the arrogance as a steam that power my dreams
And my ego – Kanye (Ego Remix)
I heard the Ego Remix song today and also read an article on confidence. It got me thinking…
Sometimes we get criticized for having a big ego, but why the fuck should we think less of ourselves? Like if we don’t deserve what we work for. Like if our ego doesn’t build on our confidence even after every failure.
Never feel bad or inappropriate for having a big ego or confidence. Average minds will criticize your ego and confidence while the successful will look at you and smile – because they know that is part of what it takes to keep on improving.
This does not mean it’s okay to think less of other people. You should use your ego and confidence in a way that lifts you up, but never to put other people down.
