    Better Far Better To Be Humble

    I find it simple and better just to leave as much of my EGO at the door, when I interact with people. More often you will go farther than if you feel that you have to defend everything you do. Case in point. I was at the DMV today. How it works is they give you a coded number and...

    I Value Humility

    Seems like it comes along with goodwill

    and being respectful of others feelings. All of sudden I am that little boy with ironed on patches on his jeans knees. For a moment, nothing else matters.

    Humility Is Sexy.

    I don't think there is anything more attractive and comforting then knowing someone who realizes that they are not the center of the universe. I feel that people like this appreciate life and the relationships that they have a lot more. Some of the arrogance that people have make...

    My Perspective

    To me one aspect of humility is the ability to look at ourselves objectively, admitting our errors and the willingness to correct them. Some mistakes cannot be corrected, so a humble well-meaning apology is in order and simply making the effort not to do those things anymore...

    Humility and Patience

    Aggression easily sprouts from fear, and the fear of being incorrect is alive and well.  There is a stigma attached to being ignorant of something, and generally people do well to uphold this.  Its a strange system;  one in which we fear to be students out of pride...
