Celebrate Humility and Be Humble

C.S Lewis once said, “True humility is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less. We learn from the Bible that “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted” (Matthew 23:-2). Being humble doesn’t mean being meek or week.

Arrogance is everywhere ranging from name dropping, rolling of the eyes, along with many other observable non-verbal clues including pointing of the chin and a false charm. Be aware of those who are constantly gossiping about others and get aggressive when others challenge their thoughts.

Instead, strive to be confident by celebrating others, speaking with authority when asked, by keep learning new skills, and recognizing that in life, nobody knows everything. Only God does.

Humility is at the core of excellence in leadership. Self control is a strength as are those who are helpful to others. Be known for being a humble leader. Arrogant ones tend to be short lived.
