During the month of March, we spent time exploring ego, learning to better understand and accommodate our egos. This exploration into the ego has allowed us to better analyze our relationship with others, our relationship with ourselves, and the important— and sometimes ornery— role ego plays in our lives. Do you have a handle on your ego or is it running your life?
Learn more about the ego, how it works in our lives, and how we can use it to our benefit, rather than our detriment, in our feature story entitled Who are you? A look at Ego and Personality Development.
Check out our other great ego-driven stories this month, as well.
In this article, Vera Remes talks about our “God job,” a calling so strong, it has to be divine. By learning to identify and focus on our God jobs, we can find our true passions and purpose in our career and other roles. What are your God jobs? How do you find it and cultivate them to make the most difference in your life and the lives of those around you? You can read all about it in What is Your God Job?

Letting go of the ego
