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
Egoistic people also hold grudges for other. They must learn forgiveness. The biggest strength of a person is forgiving others. If we have a fight with others then we should not continue to hate the person. So if a person wants to drop his ego then he should adopt the principle of forgiveness.
6.Should not hate learning from others
Many people hate to learn things from others because it hurts their ego. People should not think that they are the only educated person. There are other people as well who has humongous knowledge of various things. We should not hesitate to learn things from others.
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 ego then the person must spend some time alone and must ask himself whether his ego is good for him or he should get rid of it.
