Find Your Confidence to Pursue Within all of us, there is a small voice that feeds us (mostly irrational) thoughts 24/7. The Ego has many needs, and a lot of those can actually stunt your growth. Maybe you haven't noticed yet, but this is a very ego driven world we live in.. Greed, deep anger, status quo, judgement, social recognition, 'to be better than' and money addictions are rooted from overactive ego 'needs'. The ego is something we all have within us, and it is your choice to overcome the 'need' of the ego or to give in to the negative aspects it craves. The ego craves to be seen and acknowledged as 'higher than' another, and so the ego gives you whispers of judgement towards the 'scrappy looking' woman on the street, making her seem lesser than you. Same goes for your self talk. It will look at the people you see on social media and convince that same judgement for yourself, and now YOU are the 'scrappy looking' woman that is less than that person on Instagram. Truth is, the ego, wants you to be comfortable, safe, and 'approved' by the society its trying to fit in with. Obviously, being safe is necessary.. But the ego wants you to play it real safe, in which you would never get out of your comfort zone... In which you would never have the opportunity to learn grow, and evolve into the changes you want to embrace.
