|What is Humility?|
True humility does not require us to minimize our personal worth or compare our achievements to the greater accomplishments of others. Rather, it lets us build relationships instead of maintaining an ego.
With a humble attitude, a person can view accomplishments unselfishly. The humble attitude allows acknowledgement that in some way others played a part in you attaining your goals. As you succeed, however, you must deal with your arrogance. An air of arrogance, or the attitude that you deserve all the credit, or that you are superior to others, sets you against co-workers, family members, friends and associates. A humble person does not brag or boast and is willing to serve without recognition and to pass on praise to others.
Humility will help a person do the best job possible, regardless of how lowly the task might seem.
Arrogance does not allow us to seek advice or listen to criticism without becoming defensive-- humility does. Humility allows us to be part of a team and to give credit to others. A humble person will not allow others to take blame for his or her decisions.
True humility is knowing who you really are, and honoring others without demanding respect in return.
