Assertive Humility: Emerging from the ego trap

Assertive Humility is a phrase coined by Stuart Taylor in his book of the same name that shares his recovery from Brain Cancer and outlines a model of emerging consciousness. Assertive Humility means having courageous, values-based thoughts and behaviours for the greater good.

The book explores the destructive role of ego through either over-caring about self (obsessions) or others (dependence) OR under-caring about self (neglect) or others (detachment).

Mostly this book is a wake up call – an opportunity to reflect on where you are now, where you’re going and whether you are happy with that trajectory. It raises some of the same questions Stuart faced and provides a framework for exploring the journey ahead.
