Life Motto #1: Keep That Ego in Check [or you will be sad, lonely, friendless and potentially poor]
There will always be someone less intelligent, less funny or less attractive than you.
At the same time, there is always going to be someone smarter than you. Chances are there is someone 10 times smarter than you.
Be cautious of your soaring ego. If it soars too high, you’ll never catch up.
Just in case you don’t feel that I am a credible source for advice, check out the great Einstein [disclaimer: I have no way of knowing if he actually said this. Or if it is one of those wonderfully terrible internet concoctions]
