“Life is a long lesson in humility.”J.M. Barrie
“In the course of my life, I have often had to eat my words, and I must confess that I have always found it a wholesome diet.”Winston S. Churchill
“As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on thing and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”C.S. Lewis
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”Ernest Hemingway
“A great man is always willing to be little.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
Humility is a unique core value, because of my background in athletics and accumulating knowledge on a number of subjects; It’s definitely a value I have to be aware of because it feeds into one of my major weaknesses of being a lone wolf. Being a lone wolf is how pride tends to manifests itself in my life. Some may not see it as a pride issue, but for me personally it is.
I’ve never felt and I still don’t feel inferior to anyone no matter the status of the individual, because at the end of the day we’re all human. A person’s position, authority, or accomplishments are definitely to be honored and they’ll get the full respect of what’s due in context of the situation, and I can appreciate that people do certain things better than me and vice versa.
I believe, being humble does, not mean you lack confidence, on the contrary I don’t think you can completely embody being humble without having a confident hope. Truly confident people, from what I’ve observed, have no problem with letting others be all who they are even getting attention. I believe being humble is just doing and thinking of ways to make the lives of those around me better. The theme verse incapsulates Who my confident submission should be in.
