There is a difference between our Pride and our Ego.
Pride pushes us to be our best. Ego is anxiety and weakness that demands us to look or perform better than anyone else.
Pride is what we feel when we celebrate something we didn't think we could do. Ego is that jealousy we feel when it looks like someone else did better than us .
Pride drives us to finish when we are tired...Ego ignores our body's signals and pushes us past our limits into injury.
Pride is internal..Ego is External.Constantly looking at the performance of others and judging our self to be the loser every time.
Taking our ego with us is dangerous to our body and our mind. It can leave us with a disappointed heart and damaged muscles.
Ego's can be tricky things....It can whisper in our mind convictions of how good someone else is doing. Its so easy to fall under that spell.
It takes practice ignoring the voice of Ego. But its worth it in the end...Because the promises of our ego are lies.
Remember PRIDE is what we are after.PRIDE is what we want--that limitless happy feeling when we have done the very best we could! and did it honestly!!
