the following quoted sentences are safety tips, advising skiers how to behave on the slopes.

Tip #5:
Stay on trails within your ability level. You will have more fun, and your ego will thank you. If you do find yourself over your head - keep your skis on and side-step down. If it is too steep to ski, it is surely too precipitous to hike in ski boots while carrying 20-pounds of metal-edged gear.

Does your ego will thank you mean anything?

Any reply appreciated

My chinese is not good , but I like to help anyway! I hope you don't mind! :) I think you are on the right track bxwz.


"Stay on trails within your ability level..... your ego will thank you."
If you stay within your limits, you will feel more confident (your ego will be happy). If you try things that are too difficult, you may feel discouraged, or get a "bruised ego", as if your ego was injured or hurt.

Often we talk about ego like it's a separate person or thing! Your ego is the part of your mind that might lose face, or be proud of yourself, or ashamed of yourself. Sometimes we say someone's ego is "too big", or they have a "big head". That means they feel they are so great, not humble.

Big ego - not humble
Small ego - humble
bruised ego - discouraged that you didn't do it right, or insulted
happy ego - proud of yourself for something you just did

Your ego will thank you if you do something to make it feel confident or proud of yourself.

I hope this helps.

Thanks a billion, freakyqi, I learned a lot from your post

"your ego will thank you" means you will feel more confident and your sense of pride will be happy,  you won't get embarrassed while skiing

选择能力胜任的滑道, 你能增添自信心和自豪感, 否则会有挫败感.
