    Definitely. I loved the article because it highlights how it's often a fine line between the two. Both are incredibly driven by tenacity and an overall vision of life. But the effects it has on our lifestyle and day-to-day satisfaction are night and day. Reading it was like letting my heart take the mic for a second, voicing those things I've been feeling for some time. Thanks for your thoughts. Keep on!

    This definitely brings insight to our actions and what really drives them. For instance I can relate to a lot of the example looking at my self and in others, from both the ego side and calling aspect. The positive side is actually reading it and being able to try to change how we look at life. Thanks for the share !!

      I really identify with the burnout aspect- "My favorite definition of burnout is this: burnout is not about giving too much of yourself, it's about trying to give what you do not possess.

      Ego ends in burnout because it's consuming resources you don't have in order to push you toward a bigger, better version of yourself."
