As we contemplate leaving the morning of our life, where ego has played a commanding role, and entering the afternoon (and evening), where meaning and purpose replace ambition and struggle, we may encounter unexpected occurrences that accompany this new direction. It’s almost a universal law that we’ll experience a fall of some kind. Yet these falls or low points provide the energy we need to move away from ego and into a life of meaning and purpose.
The Shift doesn’t mean that we lose our drive and ambition; it signifies that we become ambitious about something new. We make a commitment to living a life based on experiencing meaning and feeling purposeful, rather than a life based on never-ending demands and false promises that are the trademark of the ego’s agenda.

I really enjoyed this read. I can't give any of Wayne's books less than five stars. They have all taught me something special in such a grand way, even when it's a little companion book like this. If you've read a lot of his other books, you probably don't need this. It is simple in it's message, as a companion book to the movie, which I highly recommend watching. If you're looking for more detailed ideas concerning ego, Your Sacred Self is a much more fleshed-out piece of literature on the same subject. And I highly recommend watching The Shift movie. But this is a nice quick read if you've never read a book by Wayne Dyer. Or if you just want a reference because you enjoyed the movie, it contains the same information.
