It’s be a dream breaker.
Ego is what whispers “just do it” when your brain says “no way”.
Ego wants you at the top. Right now.
Ego doesn’t want to do the work, it wants the work done. Yesterday.
It doesn’t care if you are on the verge of throwing out your back or ripping your shoulder out.
Ego doesn’t take excuses.
It just screams at you.
It screams to be better than that other guy. It screams to ignore the pain. It screams to pretend you’ve got this.
Hang it up at the door. Better yet, leave it at home.
You don’t need ego to set goals, or to get stronger, or to find new PRs. That just takes hard work.
