Always Humble

This is the quality or act of being humble. Being humble is having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance. It is not regarding others as inferior. It is not being overly proud. A great soccer player admitting that there are others who are better at certain soccer skills exemplifies humility. A great cook acknowledging there are others who are better at certain specialties is exhibiting humility.

Humility is the quality of being humble and means putting the needs of another person before your own, and thinking of others before yourself. It also means not drawing attention to yourself, and it can mean acknowledging that you are not always right.

I like what C.S. Lewis famously said: “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.”

Humble and leaders understand that leadership is all about working for the greater good. They lead to transform, not dominate. They are aware of their strengths and weaknesses and always looking for opportunities to learn. “Stay hungry, stay foolish” as Steve Jobs famously said.
