Anger is directly linked to your Ego.
“Anger is an emotional response to being wronged, denied or offended.”
– Joseph Langen
The bigger your ego, the more reason to be angry you’ll find.
“In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”
We think that we are what we have. We think that we are what we accomplish. And we evaluate others based on that.
“The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life.”
– Wayne Dyer
You can choose to leave your ego at the door. Let the haters be who they want to be. But not letting them implicate you into their hate spiral. Nothing good can come out of hate and anger. Keep yourself away from them.
“Leadership is not a popularity contest; it’s about leaving your ego at the door. The name of the game is to lead without a title.”
– Robin S. Sharma
