Have humility

If you think you already know all the answers,you're not likely to learn much of anything new.

Yet when you have the humility to admit you don't know something, there is a world of knowledge to be gained.

If the only point of view you ever consider is your own, you'll be continually held back by a narrow, limited, stagnant perspective.

Yet when you have the humility to consider the opinions of others, your eyes will be opened to a world of new opportunities.

When you put all your thoughts and energy into your own concerns,the world will seem a cold and heartless place to you.

Yet when you have the humility to give of yourself to others, life becomes infinitely more warm, joyful and fulfilling.

Snobbishness, disrespect, rudeness and self importance are desperate and pathetic expressions of inner weakness.Humility, on the other hand, is a sure sign of real,abiding strength and confidence.

True greatness does not grow from arrogance, selfishness or rude, inconsiderate behavior.

"True greatness is firmly rooted in humility. Practice real, sincere humility as you go through each of life's moments. And your own unique greatness will come shining through. "

Do you have the humility?
