If a person wants to develop goodwill in the society, then he or she should push heaven and earth to drop his or her ego. Ego is the worst enemy of a person’s goodwill. It is also a very big enemy of humanity. If a person is too egoistic then not only he or she will be hated by other but will also not get anyone by his or her side if he or she is in any problem. Ego takes a person towards destruction. An egocentric person will not only be unable to adjust himself or herself in the society but also deprives himself or herself of other’s love and respect and just because of a person’s ego the person will be unable to share good relations with others. There are some ways following which one can drop his or her ego.
The best ways are as follows:
1.Don’t be too proud at your success
With success comes name and with name and fame comes ego. If a person is very successful person then he or she should not be too proud of it and must remember that the name and fame that the person has is God gifted. So the person should be thankful to god fir his or her success instead of being too proud of it.
2.Try to control
Self control is the best control. If a person has said something to us which we did not like then instead of reacting on it with a calm head we must talk to the person and make the person realize his or her fault.
3.Listen to others also
A person should not have the ego that only others will listen with him or her and he or she will not. We live in the society with many people so if we expect others to adjust with us then we must also learn to adjust with others. Even in family also every members of the family must adjust with one another. If a person can adjust himself or herself in the family then only the person can adjust him or her in the society.
4.Don’t get offended quickly
Every person has different likings and different dislikings. Our likings or dislikings might not match with others, so if a person has said us something and has questioned on our likings or dislikings then we should not get quickly get offended on it and with a calm head must explain the person about it.
5.Learn to forgive
The biggest strength of a person is forgiving others. If we have a fight with others then we should not keep it on our mind for ever and hate the person, after sometime we must forget the fight and forgive the person as forgiveness and ego cannot come in the same page. So if a person wants to drop his or her ego then he or she should adopt the principle of forgiveness.
6.Should not hate learning from others
Many people has the ego ofhating learning things from others. But if a person wants to drop his or her ego then that person should take care of this habit. We should not only consider ourselves as the only educated person because other persons can also be well informed and well educated then us and can know many things which we dont know so at that time we should not hate or hesitate learning things from him or her.
7.Dont differentiate between caste and status
A person should consider everybody equal and should not differentiate between caste or status. This is also one major way to drop one’s ego.
If a person has lost many things in life because of his or her ego and is not able to share a good relationship with other people, then the person must spend some time alone and must ask himself or herself is his or her ego good for him or her or he or she should get rid of it.
