This reminded me that I can only change myself and that ego deflation can be a life saver. Such a great message in a compact story.
I can't help but think about ego in this story. The captain continually barking out his credentials is pure ego. But when he realizes that the other ship is a lighthouse he changes course. We must learn our own egos may be dangerous to us. And to not let them get in the way.
This story is a subtle reminder that no matter how big and powerful you think you might be, there is always something bigger. Let go of your pride and prepare to change course.
To change course. Don’t be stubborn.
He’s quite the stubborn guy good story about your ego
Keep a good ego

I just love this story! I have used it when I text yoga and was happy to hear you tell it. I guess it came to me today to tell me to listen and be willing to change course
