Personal Blogs Blog Directory The Daily Brain Shelter: Humility

Saturday, July 11, 2009


Arrogance and ignorance has become somewhat of a plague that has been injected into the veins of modern man. The egocentric, the narcissistic and the insincere are all devoid of one thing: humility. What is humility? It is the ability to be humble or the state of being humble.

Why is that important? It is important for a number of reasons. The biggest reason would have to be that, humble people treat others the way they would like to be treated. They generally live by the Golden Rule(if you have never heard of the Golden Rule, I seriously suggest that you look it up a.s.a.p.). A humble individual will not turn his or her nose up at a stranger for starting a random conversation or asking their name. A humble individual can be filthy rich and still have a best friend that works for minimum wage. A humble individual can have the face and body of a cover model, yet still hang out with a group of overweight individuals with average looks without feeling out of place.

Humility is a trait that will draw more friendship and more respect than even money or power. That statement may seem like a falacy at first glance, but as you keep looking deeper into the bigger picture, you will realize that humilty has longer lasting impacts on those you encounter(as opposed to money or power).... few, if any of which are negative.
So if you really want to make a lasting impact on this world, start today. Start by being humble. I thank you kindly for reading!

See you next time!!!
