It starts where our notion of ourselves and the world grows so strong that it begins to distort the reality which surrounds us.
The ego has then succeeded in completely separating us from the world.

The Ego is a confusing paradox. Many are in agreement that ego was bad, that it destroyed creativity and happiness, that they knew plenty of toxic egomaniacs who had wrecked themselves. But they still think Ego is important.
This is one of the most misleading and destructive myths in all of Western culture.
It is a deep and continuous connection to the world around us. The Ego disconnects us from reality, stifling creativity.
Human beings are born with a capacity to reflect, evaluate, to come up with new ideas, and find new connections. We think such creative abilities are for a chosen few, but we all have it. We may have unintentionally squashed them from our lives due to our education systems.
We ultimately don't feel creative as our routines aren't conducive to it.
Resilient people are not needy, desperate or overly reactive.
They carry a relaxed attitude and view rejection as a new direction opportunity. They don’t get down when challenged, they commit to getting up. They do not depend upon others for our resources.
Humility brings growth. Pride is good at trying to convince us that we are not prideful.
Approach learning and growth with real humility. Accept that pride affects us all and will try to limit you. Failure is part of the process. Set aside your ego and simply move past the failure. Make adjustments, and continue the process anew.
