3 ways to stay humble

Posted on: September 30, 2011

If you are making a difference in the world, it can be hard to be humble, and live with humility. Keep in mind that this does not mean being “humiliated,” but to live graciously and without trying to prove yourself with a big ego. Here are three easy ways:

  1. Put things in perspective. No matter what, there is always someone doing things much bigger than you are doing. And, there are many people suffering, who would consider you their idol. Sound like a good middle ground?
  2. Turn it over to Divine Source. You are here to serve and help others. It is your privilege to do so in your own unique way. Know that you have been given gifts, and exercise them with heartfelt love.
  3. Do menial labor. What? Am I serious? You bet. If you think you’re so great, try out a task that pays minimum wage. Chances are, you’ll find out that someone earning very little is very likely working very hard. For all that you do, remember that others are in need. Help them – when you’re in their debt, pay more than necessary and overtip waiters.
How’s that sound?
Remember – if you want to be humble and also empowered, just remember – it’s not all about you.

Huh?
What’s wrong with thinking I’m great?!?!
(I’m being completely serious, by the way)

You might want to read the other posts on humility. We’re looking here at a combination of self-worth, empowerment, and being humble. Why? To get a sense of perspective, for one. But also because, if you generally walk around announcing you’re so great… people might not be so receptive. πŸ™‚

Yeah… that’s why I keep it to myself and instead tell others how great they are. Because when you feel like a superstar, you see it in others. πŸ˜‰

I just like the valuable info you provide to your articles.

I will bookmark your blog and take a look at again here
regularly. I’m relatively sure I will be informed many new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!
