Always be Humble!

Thoughts about living a life of humility

My biggest turn off are those braggarts.

The dictionary defines “braggart” a person who boasts about achievements or possessions. A very boastful and talkative person. synonyms: blowhard, boaster, bragger, line-shooter, vaunter. type of: egoist, egotist, swellhead. a conceited and self-centered person.

The quotes below are constant reminders to lead a humble life…

“The greatest friend of truth is Time, her greatest enemy is Prejudice, and her constant companion is Humility.” “Humility is the ability to give up your pride and still retain your dignity.” “Humility isn’t denying your strengths; it’s being honest about your weaknesses.”

Developing Humility

Spend time listening to others. …
Practice mindfulness, and focus on the present. …
Be grateful for what you have. …
Ask for help when you need it. …
Seek feedback from others on a regular basis. …
Review your actions against the language of pride.

Humility improves your experience, your effectiveness, your connection to what matters. Let life humble you.

And my personal thoughts on the subject…

Let life remind you that you don’t have all the answers. Let life surprise you with how limitless its possibilities can be.

Continually expand your awareness by realizing how small it always is. Add to the depth of your wisdom by being eager to confess what you do not know.

Arrogance is a lonely, frustrating, empty life. Genuine humility offers escape from such a disheartening state, and access to your highest possibilities.

When plans go awry, be thankful for the humbling experience. When others fail to understand or respect you, take the opportunity to let life humble you.

Let life humble you. And let that make you stronger than ever.
