By sacrifice i mean sacrifice. You give your ego up to your higher self, you move beyond the pettiness of ego-fueled desire. You reclaim your identity, most people mistake their egos for themselves. In claiming your power this way you repurpose all of that energy from your ego and allow it to be born anew as your higherself (gradually).
I doubt there are many people who would admit to being an egotist that truly knew what it was. I.e. How it affects them and others. And i will say unfortunatly, this is not a hinderance to making things happen in the universe it just limits what is possible.

The Ego is merely a "mental concept" by Sigmund Freud to explain "desire", or "ambition". The Id is the the basic instincts we are born with. The Super-ego, or "conscience" is what controls the other two from being "out of control". The basic instinct when we "desire" something is to take it; steal! The super-ego tries to stop us from doing it.
The basic instinct of a man is to have sex with as many females as possible. The super-ego tells him that's a bad idea!
You should read "The Ego And The Id", by Sigmund Freud. He coined both words!
