All fear is the ego’s fear of death or annihilation. 

Eckhart Tolle

What is ego? It’s been passed down that our ego is a little, red cape-donning devil sitting on our shoulder luring us to do and say bad things. That it’s the voice keeping us tethered to judgment, compromise and mediocrity. That it’s the force that thwarts our aspirations and opportunities. That it’s the insecure, self-deprecating, name-calling, complicated jerk inside us all. Needless to say, it’s acquired quite a bad rep over the years.

Did you feel convinced of its worth when set the goal? When later thinking about your goal, did you return to a place of encouragement or discouragement?
