Thoughts about humility
What is your biggest turn off in a person? Why am I asking this question? I don’t know but I am one person who observe everything and try not to be the person I hate. Getting to the point, what I am alluding to is that character trait of being a brag or arrogant, a show off.
“Cockiness. You could be the smartest, wealthiest, best-looking man, but if you can’t stop talking about yourself, it’s not going to happen.”
“Men who are self-centered are sooooo unattractive. There’s nothing wrong with being confident and talking about yourself, but if you dominate the entire conversation and make it all about you, no one is going to want to stick around.”
Those are a few of the comments I read and even heard.
Here is an essay that will strike a balance and put those arrogant people on check…
“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
“Arrogance is a sure sign of weakness and ineffectiveness. When you think you know it all, you prevent yourself from learning new and valuable things.
When you spend all your time and energy boasting about yourself, there’s no time remaining for true achievement. When you think you’re more important than others, you quickly lose the respect of everyone.
Genuine humility is an undeniable sign of true strength and confidence. When you let go of the need to impress others, that’s when you begin to be truly impressive.
Live, speak and act with humility, and your efforts will be vastly more effective. There will be no time or energy wasted on propping up your own ego, and you can get many valuable things accomplished.
Humility brings you respect and fosters mutual understanding. Imagine what a positive difference that can make in your life and your world.
When your life is filled with true strength and genuine richness, you have no need to boast. Live with humility, and life will be full indeed.”
