How to Control Your Ego in a Fight

Your ego; something that needs to be “in check”

Having an ego can often land us in more trouble then it’s worth. Especially during a fight. This is why it’s important to know how to control your ego in a fight.

While it’s normal that you often want to show off and prove that you’re tougher than you look, it’s not worth it. The outcome can be dangerous and lead to severe consequences.

Our video on Keep Your Ego in Check shows you the consequences and different situations of what can happen during a fight if you have an ego.

Sure, on the spot it can seem like you have it handled and you know what you’re doing, but is it really the smart thing to do?

Anybody can be dangerous

For starters, you don’t know what type of person you’re dealing with. Are they someone aggressive? Are they part of a group and they can gang up on you? Do they have a history of violence?

You don’t know any of these answers, so why provoke them. As the saying often goes, “don’t poke the bear”. You don’t know when he will turn on you and put your life in jeopardy.

To see an example of how your ego can get you in trouble during a fight, see the video below:

That said, sometimes, the best decision is to not say anything at all. As hard as it may be for you, don’t let your ego get the best of you.

Don’t say anything and mind your own business. This will diffuse the tension and the outcome will be much more beneficial for you.

Furthermore, it’s important to know some verbal defense tactics to help you stay safe in these type of situations.
