Everybody feels good when their ego receives a confidence boost.
The real problem appears when you stop feeling good about yourself if the confidence boost is not received.
Another issue is that, in order to receive the boost, your ego needs an enemy - a situation or a problem to feel bigger or better than. This stops you from enjoying your life and accepting things as they are.
Apart from being conditioned by the need for recurrent boosts, it often happens that this enemy is someone that you might need in the future, but cannot count on him anymore because you already chose the ego.
Let me share an example:
You just changed your job and are part of a new team. After a few days, you do something that looks like a good approach based on your previous experience, but an older colleague reproaches you for being wrong. How would you respond?
If you have a big ego, it would be hard not to respond back, because a big ego is already used to constant bumps of confidence and this seems like the perfect situation to take one, right?
Let's examine the consequences now. How do you think you are going to be favored on the long therm? I have the answer: by not favoring the ego!
Failure is the best opportunity to begin again. Passionate about cybersecurity, astronomy, psychology, philosophy and physics. Opinions are mine. Judge for yourself.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
