Ponderings – Touch Of Humility

It’s one thing to be confident- to be poised and self-assured in everything you do. It’s another thing to be overconfident- to be smug and cocky. One will send you down the path to success, to honest, fulfilling relationships, to a life you’ve envisioned; the other down a path to disappointment, to flaky, hollow relationships, to a life of everlasting dissatisfaction.

Be confident, but try adding a touch of humility to your confidence. You’ll have a recipe for success.

Ponderings – Humility

We’re invincible, untouchable, on top of the world, until something or someone comes along to take us down from our pedestal, remind us that we’re not so invincible after all. Thus, we gain an appreciation of the fact that there are situations that will challenge us, people who will best us. That we’re not as perfect as we thought we were.

Such are often the necessary building blocks of humility.

Ponderings – Seemingly Humble

In our heads, talking down our accomplishments and refusing to give light to our talents in order to make those around us feel better about themselves seems a noble and humble act, when in reality is one of the greatest disservices to mankind we can do. Keeping our gifts hidden in the shadows does nothing to help illuminate the world.

Ponderings – Stones

I feel that oftentimes, before we criticize someone, we must first take care to check that we have no mistakes that need correcting, that we are flawless. Once we do so, we will all drop the stones we were about to throw, and perhaps, attempt to understand the accused instead.

And realize that we were never deserving of the stones in the first place.
