Ego and Me

Hell yeah, I have a problem with ego. It never used to bother me, in fact, I thought it was a positive thing. Helps with confidence, creativity and standing out in the crowd.

I like the way in life, through experience, you get to change your view.

Some of the best people I know have little ego, and it seems to help them making good decisions, and not be influenced by irrelevant factors. They also are almost always, universally liked by their peers.

I'm trying to address ego in me.

It's helping me in a number of ways, one of which is poker. A big ego can be the cause of many tilt issues, but one of the biggest is one's perception of entitlement. Playing less hands at the moment to continue to work on this.
