      As in the Obstacle is the way, Ryan holiday delivers practical and inspiring philosophy, this time exploring a powerful concept that runs back centuries, across borders and schools of thought: Ego. Ego is our biggest enemy. Early in our careers, it can prevent us from learning and developing our talents. When we taste success, ego can blind us to our own faults, alienate us from others and lead to our downfall. In failure, ego is devastating and makes recovery all the more difficult. It is only by identifying our ego, speaking to its desires and systematically disarming it that we can create our best work. Organised into bite-sized observations featuring characters and narratives that illustrate themes and life lessons designed to resonate, uplift and inspire, Ego is the Enemy shows how you can be humble in your aspirations, gracious in your success and resilient in your failures. It is an inspiring and timely reminder that humility and confidence are still our greatest friends when confronting the challenges of a culture which tends to fan the flames of ego and encourage the cult of personality at all costs.

        “Impressing people is utterly different from being truly impressive.”Everyone understands that Ego is something bad, that’s a fact. Nobody likes to be with someone who is self-centred, who puts himself first before anything else. But in this book Ryan Holiday talks differently about the Ego. Yes, he shows the side of his Ego that everyone knows, but he goes beyond. I never thought of Ego as that damned self-flagellating thought that awakens other bad profiles of yourself.There are many healthy ways to massage your ego. We always resort to the easiest one, which is for credit, which is for applause, for recognition… This kind of massage is bad because you think you are becoming more and more successful. You get stuck in a vision that the world can disrespect you at any moment. This is not healthy. There are other ways, such as being result-hungry, that lead us to a not only better but more successful self-image.When we seek to massage our ego, we try to measure our success by ethereal points, such as meetings where we try to impress others or hours and hours of arrogant conversations.The things done in our lives should not be huge monuments that will last forever. This concept is perfect. It is very easy to live for the ego and still deny it for a lifetime. Not understanding the silent consequences of the ego is one of the main mistakes. To understand that the ego will always be there is another mistake. The ego does not disappear. The book says that threatened egoism is one of the most dangerous forces in the world.The trick is to learn from the experience of others. The trick is to do a self-analysis. Personal self-improvement leads to professional excellence and personal excellence. But professional improvement does not lead to personal excellence. Controlling the ego is a construct. It’s not just because we sweep the floor once that will make it clean in the future.
