Live Your Life With Integrity, Lose With Dignity, Win With Humility
People often forget that there is so much more to this world than just what happens in their lives. Modern-day society is placing so much emphasis on attraction, status and wealth, that it’s making people adopt false personas and representations of themselves. Rather than just being themselves, people prefer to portray something which they are not.
How many people that you know still maintain a modest or low view of their own importance? It’s almost as if you are lucky to still meet them, as if they are a dying breed. And it’s not because human nature is wicked or genetically rotten. It’s because the entertainment industry does an amazing job at selling us a “glamorous, all about me” persona.
One effective way of stepping away from this false persona is getting involved in education. Going to college and graduate school and taking your studies seriously, definitely helps you to develop your mind and direct your focus and attention on intelligence, and the more important matters in life. Education helps you realize that there is so much more to life than fame, status and wealth.
This is not to imply that artsy people are fake and all about themselves. Many artsy people live their lives with integrity and humility. But no matter what line of work you find yourself in, you must learn how to keep your ego in check. The ego is very susceptible to inflation, and the more that you keep it in check, the less the tendency for it to inflate.
Even if you want to have a lot of money in life and be the center of attention, do it in a humble and innocent manner: don’t show off; don’t believe that you’re better than others; don’t act like you’re superior and don’t make everything about you! You’ll actually become a much more attractive person, if you allow others to steal some of the attention.
