The higher your status, the bigger your ego grows. It is also the time when your ego is threatened the most.
- Do you welcome people who challenge your point of view?
- Can you let your work be subjected to harsh criticism?
- Do you have the humility to accept the fact that you are not good enough?
As you climb social rank, you can be dragged right back where you started if you don’t learn to relinquish your ego.
