How to Overcome a Pride Problem

Pride is a huge barrier to success and the development
of talent. If pride is an obstacle to your growth,
then you need to take some deliberate and strategic
steps to overcome it:

1. Recognize and admit your pride. To defeat

pride, we need to embrace humility.

2. Express gratitude often. Oprah Winfrey says,
“Keep a grateful journal. Every night, list five things
that happened this day that you are grateful for. If
you can learn to focus on what you have, you will
always see that the universe is abundant, and you
will have more.”

3. Laugh at yourself. People who have the problem
of pride rarely laugh at themselves. But engaging
in humor at your own expense shows that pride
isn’t a problem.
