Take care, ego tantrums cannot take us too farHuman relationships are too complex. Any person with giant-sized egos is often a hated person. There are many who think that they can get away with anything, once they have huge money in their hands. There is another lot who sort of confuse themselves with their official position. They tend to think that their non-official life can also be supplemented with the kind of authority that they enjoy( mostly wrongly) at office.
The results are the same. A single downfall, like a death of a close relative or in the family itself, can be shattering. No one ever turns up, except the yes men to offer any solace. Some egoistic guys face a lot of humiliation when the times are not good. In an engineering conglomerate, one such fellow was transferred to another location, when complaints against him reached their climax. The Top Management took the drastic action. He was in a very serious position. The transfer was celebrated in full public view. People took vidoes of the same or photos of the celebration and put that in the intranet. Several years later, they were even seen on Facebook!!
Such is the power of egos. Once we try to shed our egos and become humble, then the world speaks highly of us. The noted singer SPB is now celebrated as a very humble person. Ditto for Sachin Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachchan and so on. Let us learn this simple fact -- ego tantrums do not take us anywhere.
