Ego can be a source of motivation, but then, ego is a very poor motivator. By its very nature, ego needs feeding, and hence, it makes you a perpetual beggar. The problem with ego is that when it is fed, you struggle out of superiority complex, when ego is starved; you suffer out of inferiority complex. Either way it robs you of your peace of mind.
When you transcend ego, you just want to win over yourself; you want to make the most of your potential. There is enormous freedom in letting your ego go.”
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.”
There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words.
He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”
The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way. I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”
