A lot of people struggle financially while making excuses as to why they are struggling. The excuses could be, “I don’t have enough money”, “I don’t have the right idea”, “I don’t have capital” among other excuses usually people make. Dan Lok states that the major thing that holds people back is the EGO. The EGO comes in many disguises. There are mainly 13 of them. Let’s take a brief look at these EGOs.
The Blame EGO
Lame People Always Blame People. When this EGO arise, those struggling financially look for people and events to blame for their struggle. It could be the Government, the economy, the industry, their friends, their families, their parents among other things and people. Those with this EGO normally blames others for their own failures.
The Know It All EGO
This EGO dupes people into thinking that they know everything and that they do not have the need to read and learn more and new things. The Know It Alls keep repeating the same things over and over again expecting different results and from Dan’s point of view, it is the very definition of INSANITY.
The Fearful EGO
This is what mostly hold people back. Most of the people who want success fear failures; they fear making mistakes and to learn from those mistakes. The word FEAR is an acronym. It stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear is nothing more than just a made up story in ones mind.
The Comfort Zone EGO
This EGO normally makes a person to feel too complacent and too comfortable in the current status that they are in. The comfort zone for people with this EGO is their Income Zone. When you get comfortable in your current status it means that you are not GROWING and when you are not growing it means that you are DYING.
The Judgmental EGO.
Imagine walking down the street and suddenly a Ferrari drives by. What will be the first thought that comes to your mind? You will probably be thinking of criticism. For instance, “That’s not even his car”, “I bet he stole that car”, if it’s a lady you would probably say that she’s a Gold Digger. This is called projecting your own insecurities and your own values into other people. You don’t know what they did to get it. You don’t know the kind of Hardwork they put to get that Ferrari. The question is, HOW DO YOU KNOW?
The Exuces EGO
You can Either make Money or make Excuses. You have got to pick one since you cannot do both. An excuse is nothing more than a well planned LIE. The excuses EGO normally states, I CAN’T instead of HOW CAN I?
The People Pleasing EGO
This EGO always wants to make sure that everybody is happy and everybody is okay. People with this EGO always puts other people first instead of themselves. Dan Lok says that sometimes in life you have got to put yourself first before others. You have to be Selfish so that you can be Generous.
The Justification EGO
People with this EGO always have the reason as to why they cannot do something. They usually use excuses to justify their own failures. Stop justifying by making made up excuses but instead find reasons why you have to do something.
The Jealous EGO
Have you ever said or hear someone else say, “Rich folks are greedy”, “Rich people are corrupt”, “Rich people are selfish”and so on; that is the jealous EGO talking. Do not critize what you have not done or what you are not capable to do.
The Fake EGO
This EGO makes people to feign their real selves. Just be yourself since everyone is taken. You can never be someone else. It’s rather you be hated for who you are than to be loved for you are pretending to be.
The Shy EGO
Do not hold yourself into your own Buble making excuses as to why you cannot achieve success. This EGO evidences shyness or introvertsy as the reason why they cannot succeed.
The Other People’s Opinion EGO
This people care about what other people think or say about them. It could be your family, your friends, your spouse, your teachers and the rest of the other people. Stop worrying about other people’s opinions; if you continue to worry about how others view or think about you, you will never realize your ultimate potential and you will never grow.
The Do It Yourself EGO.
Those with this EGO tend not to trust others to do something for them. They believe that everything is best done when you have done it yourself. This people tend to work alone and never request others for help even in their Businesses. Someone once said many hands and heads are better than that of a single person.
If you have the above listed EGOs then ensure to work on managing them and eliminating them in the long run. For any person to become truly successful they must eliminate their EGO.
