Once you de-prioritize your ego and stay humble, navigating tricky situations becomes much simpler. You will find that success isn’t so hard to achieve anymore!
De-prioritize your ego.
Allow your ego to take a few hits. The next time you feel your ego being challenged, think about the big picture: If you de-prioritize your ego and stay humble, will it be easier for you to reach your ultimate goal?
Do not be a pushover.
Keep in mind that humility is not as important as self-respect. Do not allow anyone to walk all over you—put your foot down when necessary. Compete aggressively, or have a sharp word with someone as the situation demands.
