Yesterday’s Question Of The Day Continued:

The collective definition of ego based on yesterday’s comments showed that some of the negative effects of the ego (negative pride) could;
1. Cause us to look down on those weaker than we are.
2. Cause us to focus on our own weaknesses, robbing us of joy in the success we are having.
3. Convince us to use too much weight or do something that might get us hurt.
4. Compare ourselves to others.
5. Skip WODs we know others will do better in than us.
Wow! No wonder having a big ego is so counterproductive to getting fit and being a happy member of an up building community!

Today’s question:
In your estimation what is the opposite of being egotistical, and how will it help you, and your community.

    Stopping what your doing to help pull down bands for someone who needs help. Doing another 400 so the last person who is struggling won’t be alone. That’s my opposite of being egotistical.

    I think the opposite of that is the sheer excitement I feel watching my friends succeed ! Even at things I don’t do well at! I love watching Sarah do ring dips rxd! Kristin conquer her box jump fear! Mase running like the wind! Amy doing burpees! Traci overhead squatting! I love watching everyone do well at things. I know we all feel the same! True support:) love it!

    I think the opposite of the big ego is knowing your limits but not giving up on something that is difficult. Another part of that is encouraging others to succeed.
    being so self absorbed can make you miss all the amazingness that is happening around you.

    So glad I dragged myself out of bed for the early bird class…had a great time with Dan, Michelle, Chuck and Traci! I think we all have something we can learn from each other, if we stay humble and take advantage of that it creates a positive environment and makes us all stronger mentally and physically.

    I definitely agree with all of the comments so far about what it means to put the ego aside. I really feel that being able to see others make progress and be happy for their progress helps me to get better as well because I am so encouraged by what everyone is capable of rather than just focusing on my own accomplishments or failures.
    Today’s WOD, 65# for part A, 22:09 Rx for part B.

    Great comments – I agree with everyone. The opposite of the big ego for me is to embrace all the encouragement and cheers when I’m the last one to finish a WOD.
