You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.
-- Joan Baez
Let go of your ego
Your ego won’t solve any problems. Your ego won’t convince anyone of anything.
Your ego won’t make you stronger or more skilled or more capable or more knowledgeable. Mostly, your ego will just get in the way of your true essence.
So choose to tap into your authentic power by choosing to let go of the concerns of your ego. Step purposefully beyond those superficial concerns and step up to a dramatically higher level of effectiveness.
Let go of your ego, and many of your fears and anxieties dissolve. Let go of your ego, and the positive possibilities become more numerous, more powerful and more accessible.
Without ego constantly dragging you down, you can focus on what truly matters. You’ll find that one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is to get past your concerns for yourself.
Let go of your small ego and see life’s big, wonderful, valuable picture. Let go of your ego, and let your true beauty and goodness soar.
— Ralph Marston
