Lower Ego Vulnerability and Difficulty Dealing with Adversity

Aired Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST

This week on It’s Your Ego—Stupid!, Dr. Nick will be looking intensely into the mirror of our ability to deal with the adversity that we are all confronted with owing to the imperfection of our humanity. These include the various failures, losses, and mistakes we are all called upon to manage, from time to time. Life success is often a function of how well we get up and learn from them after having been knocked down by them. During the show I’ll be looking at symptoms, reflections of ego stupidity, and the impact on spiritual wellness which occurs when a person is being affected by lower ego vulnerability energy, in their encounters with adversity. I’ll also be looking at specific ego insights needed to transform lower ego vulnerability into a healthier and more balanced place.

Unfortunately, for those with lower ego vulnerability, they have a difficult time recognizing, taking responsibility, and looking for solutions to the problems they encounter. This is often due to the weak emotional cues, particularly guilt, they fail to experience. That can help them to see more clearly what has taken place, and their role in it. Thus, contributing to a “ripple effect” in which they have difficulty learning from their failures, losses, and mistakes; recognizing the harmful impact these can be having upon others; and difficulty receiving constructive criticism from those who are trying to help them. Help them to in dealing with preventable failures, losses, and mistakes, which they tend to repeat over and over again. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Sociopath, the Sadist, and the Inattentive-Person.

Unfortunately, for those with higher ego vulnerability, they are often consumed by feelings of anxiety and fear when encountering failures, losses, and mistakes. This tends to magnify the size of the problem they are confronting, which can make it seem larger than it is. And shrink their perceived ability to manage it. Their attempts to understand and solve problems can become flooded with “emotional thinking” which gets in the way of their effectiveness. They can also be prone to anticipate failure, otherwise known as fear of failure. Leading them to avoid situations that can lead to failure, losses, or mistakes, even when the risk of these occurrences are minimal. Roles they often find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Perfectionist, the Overly Self-Critical Person, and the Stressed-Out Person.

I’ll also be looking at specific ego insights needed to transform higher ego flexibility into a healthier and more balanced place.

Unfortunately, for those with higher ego flexibility they often take a very flexible approach in which they listen too much to others and too little to themselves, in their efforts to deal with problems. This places them at risk of listening to the wrong people, at the wrong times, who can be giving them bad information. Even if these people or resources (beware of the Internet) have good intentions and are trying to be helpful. This often serves to weaken their grasp of the causes that contributed to the difficulty and the solutions that can serve them best in managing it. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Adult Child and the Puppet.

This often limits their understanding of the causes of problems, their contribution to them, and the solutions which may be necessary. This includes often thinking “inside the box” and mainly using what they know or want to know. This lends itself to a very stubborn quality in which they keep using the same approaches, even if they aren’t working. They have particular difficulty handling more complex problems and the ones where causes and solutions are hidden. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Authoritarian and the Paranoid Person.

Unfortunately, for those with lower ego power they often experience failures, losses, or mistakes, in a very personal and disempowering way. These happenings contribute to increased feelings of weakness and helplessness. As a result they often engage in excessive self-criticism for having brought forth their failings, underestimate their ability to confront them, and often try to play it safe by avoiding future risks or situations that can lead them to fail, lose, or make mistakes. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Dependent, the Depressive, and the Underachiever.

Unfortunately, for those with higher ego power they often experience failures, losses, or mistakes, of their own making, as an opportunity to be disempowered. They violate their intense need to feel that they have everything within their control. As a result, they often have difficulty accepting their responsibility for their occurrence, look to blame others when they occur, and have difficulty apologizing for their contribution to failures, losses, and mistakes, particularly those which affect others. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Dictator, the Ultra-Competitor, and the Bully.

Lower Ego Vulnerability and Difficulty Dealing with Significant Life Changes

Aired Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST

This week on “It’s Your Ego—Stupid!”, Dr. Nick will be looking intensely into the mirror of our ability to manage significant life changes that we are called upon to deal with. These include developmental changes involving our health, growth, and development. Situational changes involving work, relationships, and finances. Also, societal and technological changes taking place in an ever changing world we are called on to deal with. During the show I’ll be looking at symptoms, reflections of ego stupidity, and the impact on spiritual wellness which occurs when one is caught up in lower ego vulnerability energy. I’ll also be looking at specific ego insights needed to transform lower ego vulnerability into a healthier and more balanced place.

Unfortunately, for those with lower ego vulnerability, they often miss some of the important changes taking place in their life. Because, the emotional alarm bells aren’t going off to tell them that something needs to be done about these changes, involving areas such as health, relationships, work, etc. They only seem to find out later, rather than sooner, that something is going on that requires their attention. Also, they are prone to instigate changes in their life involving jobs, relationships, and living situations (many unexplained or unneeded), in order to alleviate boredom by changing the “scenery” in their life. They don’t enjoy consistency, stability, or predictability, because that doesn’t give them the emotional rush they seek to alleviate their boredom. Roles they can find their way into living, until they awaken, include the Hedonist, the Sociopath, and the Inattentive Person.

Unfortunately, for those with higher ego vulnerability, they often approach significant changes taking place in their life with fear and anxiety. Rather, than welcoming change, they are prone to view it as threatening and respond to it by over-reacting to it or by trying to avoid it or creating distance from it, such as may occur with procrastination or trying to “hide” from it. Consequently, when change is natural, normal, or needed, they often engage in a lot of ego stupidity involving non-reality based, truth disconnected thoughts, feelings, and behaviors involving change that tend to make things worse, not better. This includes a lot of “fear-based” and “anger-based” thoughts that undermine their ability to deal with significant, but normal, changes that take place in all of our lives involving health, work, relationships, and finances. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken, include the Stressed-Out Person, the Order Freak, and the Clean Freak.

Unfortunately, for those with higher ego flexibility, they often bring a very flexible, naive, and gullible way of thinking about and dealing with significant changes they encounter in their life. An approach that often emphasizes listening too much to others about how they should be thinking about and dealing with major changes taking place involving health, relationships, finances, and work, to name but a few. Often, allowing others to think for them, rather than thinking for themselves. An approach that can have them listening too much to the wrong people, about the wrong things, and at the wrong times, when it comes to dealing with change. An approach which can have them listening too little to themselves, when they are the right person they should be listening to. All reflections of ego stupidity when one is in the grips of higher ego flexibility ego energy. Roles they can find their way into living, until they awaken, include the Adult Child, the Puppet, and the Loyalist.

Unfortunately, for those with lower ego flexibility, they often bring a rigid and inflexible approach to thinking about and dealing with significant changes they encounter in their life. This can involve thinking about change in old and outdated ways which don’t fit with the current circumstances involving themselves and the world. Often, “thinking inside the box” and only in ways familiar to them when encountering significant work, health, financial, and relationship changes taking place in their life. They also tend to avoid people or resources that can give them a broader perspective on these and other changes. Because this would take them out of their “cognitive comfort zone”, in which they only think about things the way they want to think about them. Which leads them into a lot of ego stupidity reflected in the ways they think, feel, and respond to significant changes taking place in their life, rooted in lower ego flexibility energy. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken, include the Authoritarian, the Religious Extremist, and the Paranoid.
