“Learning to live on less pride has been a great investment in my future.” - Katerina Stoykova Klemer
Had a moment where I let my pride get the best of me today. And it truly is a tough thing to swallow. We imagine because of who we are and what we do and all the work we put in that sometimes we should be excluded from the menial and the tasks that seem "beneath" us. Every single day we are required to humble ourselves. Be open to correction and not get upset with those who are in our corners. Even when it's a message that stings it can have some value.
Pride may be stopping you from making your next move. It may be stopping you from growing. It may be putting a halt on who you could be because you don't wanna heal. Because you are scared of what that growth may mean. You are afraid of just admitting you are wrong and not being the best and the smartest in the room.
Just a life lesson. Take it into business. Or apply it to your own dreams. Or to your corporate career. Do what you want with it.
Last note...I remember Michael Port (@heroicpublicspeaking
) telling someone in an interview that most people try to take business courses and marketing courses and branding classes thinking that if they do that then their business will improve. He said that what you really need to improve is yourself. And if you do that then your business will grow.
