Be humble and unforeseen forces will aid every step you take.
There is a lot to be said about keeping yourself humble.
And to set the record straight, this doesn’t mean you can’t accept a compliment, or appreciate all the unique things you bring to the table. I find people who can’t accept a compliment are usually either
A) A melgomaniac in disguise
B) Wallflowers with no self esteem
Being humble is the perfect balance between these two extremes. You own your power, you know who you are, what you want in life, and are actively acquiring the skills needed for said things. The difference is in your attitude.
You don’t allow your pursuits to create arrogance.
Arrogance is thinking you are somehow better than other people because of your talents, vision, life path. How can you tell when you are slipping out of the humble attitude which attracts the underlying forces of the Universe to aid you?
You begin judging other people.
You compare yourself to others, usually finding fault, and allowing their lack of whatever attribute to make you feel better about yourself. You feel like superior to others and if left unchecked, this attitude will permeate every area of your life and infect it.
How can we inspire our inner genius without allowing our ego to take us over? It’s all about perspective. Being thankful for the gifts you have, while also observant of the areas you have much work to do. It’s being honest with yourself and letting go of that competitive belief that others must fail in order for us to succeed.
When you learn to be
H U M B L E while embracing your strengths
All manner of seen and unseen forces will conspire to propel you forward on your mission. And the impact you will have on others will multiply. Take stock of where you stand day to day, and see how this rule can help you create a rich life that is satisfying.
