Ego, Humility, and Grace at Work

We all have egos. Sometimes they help us—sometimes, not so much.

A healthy level of ego allows us to grow, learn, and be in a state of humility. When we lack humility, or we don’t have aspirations, or graciousness in our successes, or resilience in our failures—that’s when our ego is not serving us.

Ego is a wonderful thing when it serves us and is purposeful about what we’re doing. But when it gets in the way and we don’t have humility, graciousness, or resilience, we know ego has become a problem. The good news is that we can fix that just by being aware.
