The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Ian Mann of Gateways Business Consultants for his weekly business book review.
Mann reviewed Ryan Holiday’s “Ego is the Enemy: The Fight to Master Our Greatest Opponent”.
Description on Amazon:
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.
