We as humans will always have the need to grow. Even if we do not verbalise it, it is an innate need that is in each of us. Not having it, is simply not really living. However when we let ego into our lives, it prevents our growth, our learning and ultimately our success.
The need to be better than someone else is indeed an illusion of life. The truly successful have realised that it is they themselves who they should be concern about. Therefore, be humble when you are rising up. And stay humble when you’re at the top. Our state of life is full of uncertainty so let’s always do our best and may we remember to continuously keep our feet on the ground.
