Self Deception Is Our Enemy - Day 219 - Deepstash

Self Deception Is Our Enemy - Day 219

  • Self-deception and ego are the sworn enemy of our ability to learn and grow. We will be unable to improve, to learn, to earn the respect of others if we think we're already perfect, a genius admired far and wide.
  • In this sense, ego and self-deception are the enemies of the things we wish to have because we delude ourselves into believing that we already possess them.
  • So we must meet ego with the hostility and contempt that it insidiously deploys against us - to keep it away, if only for twenty-four hours at a time.
