Six Ways To Conquer Mr Ego

It’s occurred to me this week that my ego is larger than I’d thought. It’s prevented me from some seriously fun times. And that’s no way to live. Your ego is basically a stringer together of words. Words that discourage you from speaking up, dancing with unselfconscious fabulousness, and even loving.

Here are some ways I’ve conquered my ego this month:

1. Talking to it. Saying things like, “Dude, shut it. Stop psyching me out. I got this.”

2. Skateboarding. I bought a skateboard online some weeks ago. I’m a total beginner, FYI. The woman I bought it off sensed as much and gave me

some pointers (one leg on the board, bend the knee and get low; use the other to push). After my maiden ride, I realised skateboarding cannot be undertaken with the ego in toll. It mucks with your balance and sucks any semblance of pleasure from the activity. As soon as I step onto the thing, I am completely there, present, not stuck in my thoughts, and it feels like flying. Thus, if your ego’s getting the better of you, invest in a skateboard.

3. Ping pong. Same deal. No-one has time for petty thoughts and pride traps with a paddle in hand.

4. Visualisation. Picture, if you will, a fortune cookie. Now pretend its name is Ego. Put on your chunkiest, bad arse black leather boots. And crush the crap out of that cookie. Following this, go merrily about your day.

5. Acceptance. Allow it to sit in the living room of your mind, but ask that he/she keep it down and not move the furniture around.

6. Do exactly the thing your ego is urging you not to. For example,

EGO: “Don’t compliment that stranger’s hat, she’ll think you strange.”
ACTION: Compliment the crap out of that hat. Because it is AMAZING.

EGO: “Don’t bust a move here. No-one else is dancing and you’ll look a fool”.
ACTION: Dance like it pains you not to dance.

EGO: “Don’t invite her to the movie/party/coffee house. She might say, ‘No’.”
ACTION: Invite. Always invite. There’s a chance she’ll say, “Hells to the yeah”, and you will have a mighty fine eve together.

How do you crackdown on ego?

On pessimism

Alain de Botton – On Pessimism from The School of Life on Vimeo.

Why a lecture on pessimism, when SuperForest is all about positivity?

Remover careful time that to it crease out compare – process decreasing: and my!

Well, as Alain de Botton explains in his talk, our social and environmental conditioning has taught us that feeling sad is a big no-no. To deny sadness or hard times is to deny life! As I’ve been feeling low myself these past few months, de Botton’s lecture reminded me that a dose of melancholy is perfectly normal, to be expected, and to deny oneself the blues would be as crazy as crying every time it rains.

Sometimes we feel blue and that’s perfectly okay. So let’s welcome the sad times, because without them, how are we to appreciate the rad times?

me visiting my local farmers’ market every Saturday. How about I outline them in bulletpoint form below?

  • I feel more in control of my food choices, as I no longer rely on the big supermarket chains.
  • I’m cooking a lot more. Buying food in season means I often have to research new recipes involving specific ingredients.
  • I’m saving money. Sure, organic produce can be pricey, but since I’m not being tempted by unnecessary packaged snacks, it kinda works out to be the same, if not cheaper.
  • I have something to look forward to every Saturday morning.
  • The farmers and stallholders are the friendliest peeps, so it’s easy to spark up a chat about what I’m buying and how far it has travelled to get to me.
  • It’s confidence building. By going to the farmers’ markets, I feel as though I’m telling the universe, “I care about what I eat! And I want only the best!”

In the video above, watch fabulous and passionate Aussies talk of their love of slow food and eating only the best and freshest.

Clean your slate and start fresh

Every day is a new opportunity to start with a clean slate.

To put the past behind you and to look forward to a promising future.

And to mark this special occasion, try making some radical changes to “shock” you out of your routine to tell yourself that you really mean business.

That THIS is the day things start to change.

Whatever you do, make sure it’s a positive, radical, substantial change to get you off on the right foot and running toward the direction you want.
