Let Go - The Ego

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Shabbar Suterwala

Here is a beautiful short story of how a genius after being successful can have a downfall. A must read for all, and more important, the learnings from if and answer the 11 questions. Trust you will enjoy reading and share the learings.

Let Go - The Ego

There was once a learned scientist after a lot of practice and efforts developed a formula and learned the art of reproducing himself. He did it so perfectly that it was impossible to tell the reproduction from the original. Thus was successsful in his formula.

One day while doing his research realized that the Angel of Death was searching for him. In order to remain immortal he reproduced a dozen copies of himself. The reproduction was so meticulous that all of them looked exactly like him. Now when this Angel of death came down, he was at a loss to know which of the thirteen before him was the original scientist, and confused, he left them all alone and returned back to heaven.

But, not for long, for being an expert in human nature, the Angel came up with a clever idea. He said to the scientist addressing all thirteen of them, “Sir, you must be a genius to have succeeded in making such perfect reproduction formula of yourself. However, I have discovered a flaw in your work, just one tiny little flaw.”

The scientist immediately jumped out and shouted, “Impossible! Where is the flaw?” “Right here” said the Angel, as he picked up the scientist from among the reproductions and carried him off.

The whole purpose of the scientist and his formula of reproduction failed as he could not control his pride and lost his life.

So check out friends, while your Knowledge and Skills takes you to the top of the ladder and make you successful, but the three letter word “EGO” will pull you down immediately. Let go your Ego.

Now, Let us ponder on some of our Ego too?

Do I have it?
What is it about?
Why do I have it?
What purpose does it solve?
Whom does or will it affect?
What consequence can it have within your organization/team/colleagues?
What consequence can it have within your family and its members?
How will your relationship get affected because of it?
Do I know people or situations or events where people have fallen because of their ego? What can I learn from it?
How can I overcome it?
What do I need to do to “Let go – The Ego”?
Friends please do share your learning from the above and learn from it.

With Kind Regards
