I got a thing for the humble ones, the ones that know that everything they have worked for can be snatched in a blink of an eye. I’ve came across some people who don’t understand the concept of being humble and I must admit it bothers me to the core because they refuse to appreciate what they have.
What does being humble mean?
Merriam-Webster dictionary describes the word Humble as not proud or haughty : not arrogant or assertive and the second definition is reflecting, expressing, or offered in a spirit of deference or submission. In other words to be humble you must not be so full of yourself that you can’t see what you have in front of you.
Why should you be humble?
I found this in an article written by Christoph Seckler and it explains why being humble is so important in life and in the work force. “Humble people are willing to see themselves accurately and appreciate feedback. Errors and mistakes provide feedback on one’s own actions. So humble people see value in errors and the information that they provide for their own learning. This gives them an edge over others.” I picked this because Christopher Seckler explained it perfectly.
Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success.Rick Pitino
