Pride will not do you any good
Good day guys, how are you doing today? I trust that you're doing very well. Let's quickly review yesterday's article.
You don’t have to follow the multitude and do what they're doing. You should be to consider your choices and choose what you feel is right for you without feeling bad.
Some people only do things because there are other people doing it. They just accept that it is the way things should be done. And when it looks like they don't fit in, they feel unfulfilled. Which is absolutely false, you're actually fulfilling a lot more when you don’t go about looking to copy others in order to feel accepted and fulfilled.
Om achieving success, when you go on your own path, it’ll be easier for you to get back up after mistakes or failure, because people will try to make you fail and remain there, because you chose to follow your own path instead of theirs. If you aren’t sheepishly following after others just to feel among, then it’s sure that you're working outside your comfort zone, and this will make them wish that you fail so that you'll later settle with their option.
You can follow your own path and and even achieve more than what people had achieved in the times past and even beyond what people had told you that you could achieve.
If you will walk on your own path and attempt to challenge to overcome the world, there'll be obstacles that you will meet obstacles on your journey. Therefore, you should not compare yourself to others, and compare your journey to others.
So many people have become followers without them knowing. They became followers by following the crowd, instead of walking on their unique path.
If you are really passionate about something, then do it. You don’t have to follow another person's passion and risk yourself to be like everyone else.
You don’t need anybody to define who you are to you. The only person to define who you are is yourself.
Find your passion and pursue it. If someone tries to give you a it would be logical or safer way that's to follow the crowd, swiftly decline.
There is no shortcut to success, you'll have to put in the work. Go ahead, follow your path, success ahead.

As with anger, we all have pride.
Pride is based on self-centeredness, and it’s destructive. Pride makes us self-conscious. When we think so highly of ourselves, we tend to protect our self-assigned status rather than strive for something better.
When everything is going your way, you may not feel pride. It’s only when you look at others and compare yourself with them that you get that feeling of satisfaction that comes from comparison.
What we’re getting to, then, is that pride is based on self-centeredness, and it’s destructive. We tend to think of pride as being concerned with what others think of us. (We notice when someone else is proud, but we seldom register our own pride.) And in a sense this is true.
But the real root of pride is the concern we have with ourselves. Pride is essentially competitive. Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man. It is the comparison that makes you proud, the pleasure of being above the rest.
You can see that what I’ve described here isn’t just a minor defect in man’s character. It’s at the root of all society’s ills.
Religion has always tried to fight pride by teaching humility and self-sacrifice: Put others first. Don’t be selfish. These principles may be valid, but they don’t touch the main problem. Humility and self-sacrifice will not cure the basic disease--the tendency to measure everything in terms of “more” or “less” rather than in terms of its own unique value.
Pride is based on self-centeredness, and it’s destructive. Pride makes us self-conscious. When we think so highly of ourselves, we tend to protect our self-assigned status rather than strive for something better. We focus on what we don’t have, never taking the time to be thankful for all that we do have.
Pride will not do you any good, pride is based on self-centeredness, and it’s destructive.
The point is that each person’s pride is in competition with everyone else’s pride. Pride is essentially competitive. Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man. It is the comparison that makes you proud, the pleasure of being above the rest.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
