Secret Insights Into Your Boss's Ego

Everyone knows a little bit about “ego.” When someone behaves in a vain or immodest fashion, we say she has “an ego problem.” But few of us understand how the ego can be good as well as bad.

This insight is invaluable in two areas: 1) sales and 2) management. These are the functional areas in which dominance, will and manipulation can take place. They are where ego is most often misunderstood.

The quote, below, comes from a mysterious, otherworldly source. It uses a simple metaphor to understand ego:

“The ego is definitely an advancement, but it can be compared to the bark of the tree in many ways. The bark of the tree is flexible, extremely vibrant, and grows with the growth beneath. It is a tree’s contact with the outer world, the tree’s “interpreter,” and to some degree the tree’s companion. This is how a human being’s ego should be.

When a human’s ego turns instead into a shell, when instead of interpreting outside conditions, it reacts too violently against them, then it hardens; the bark (ego) becomes an imprisoning form that begins to snuff out important data. In effect, it keeps “enlarging information” from the inner self.

The purpose of the ego is protective. It is also a device to enable the inner self to inhabit the physical plane. It is, in other words, a camouflage.”
