Stop taking yourself too seriously

27 May

It’s a very inspirational post Stop Taking Yourself So Seriously from Dan Shipper.
I’d like to share with you this particular passage…

Here’s the problem with taking yourself too seriously: every experience you have can potentially jeopardize your self-importance. When your self-importance is jeopardized you become defensive, and then eventually stop doing whatever it was you were trying to get good at.
To gird yourself against this outcome, when you’re taking yourself too seriously, you do two things: you tend to model yourself after very successful people and refuse to take advice from others.

Thanks Dan!
