A big ego is a substitute for confidence.
Confident people have no need to brag or enhance their perceived abilities.
Working with these people can be a challenge.
It can make a job you love miserable.
Never feed a big ego even to gain acceptance at work – it encourages more of the same behavior you don’t like.
Avoid fighting a big ego – it will only make them push harder to prevail.
The only way around a troubling big ego is to ignore it – let the words go through your ears without reacting one way or the other.
There is no cure for an egotistical person.
But there is a remedy for those who have to suffer fools like this.
Don’t let them push your buttons.
