COT-Confidence vs. Ego

Inspiration for this COT comes to you via the Michael Jordan docuseries on ESPN, The Last Dance. Watching this series has allowed my son and I to have a vacation from our current sports deprived world. MJ was in my opinion, The GOAT. 

But there were times during this docuseries he came across as a real cocky dude. Did he earn “the right” to be cocky? In most cases I would say yes. But that doesn’t change the fact that he had a huge ego that may not have of only helped him in life but held him back too. As I watched this with my son, I found myself trying to explain the difference between confidence andego.

One explanation I found comes from Ryan Holiday’s blog. Holiday authored Ego is the Enemy. In short, confidence isevidence of our strength and abilities. I consider that your work product or results you have produced in life that you can draw from moving forward to give you poise to conquer similar feats. 

Ego, on the other hand, is “a kind of unhealthy belief in our own importance. The idea that we have unlimited strengths and no weaknesses. It’s the voice whispering in our ear that we’re better than other people, that our needs matter more, that the rules don’t apply to someone as exceptional as we are.” See this link for more https://ryanholiday.net/what-ego-edges-out/

The point of my COT is not to prescribe a cure or strategy to have confidence but not be egotistic. I don’t have the answer for that. The point is to have you be mindful of when you areslipping out of the confidence zone and into the ego zone which I would argue is counterproductive.
