How to be Humble
Transcript of How to be Humble
to not be arrogant (arrogant means having excessive pride in oneself) Humility is a quality of being humble How to show humility -
respect others A humble person recognizes his inner strengths, he has the confidence to recognize greatness in others. An arrogant 10-year-old thinks he's better than his friends, because (for example) he is such a great reader, whereas the child who has humility knows he's a great reader but also recognizes that other kids are good at things like sports, math, science and history.

Admitting Mistakes The arrogant person can do no wrong, while the humble person admits his mistakes freely. More importantly, the humble person always keeps in mind the possibility that he could be mistaken.
When the arrogant person finds that his bank statement contains a mistake, he marches into the bank and angrily demands an explanation for sloppy performance! The humble person, on the other hand, first takes a moment to consider the possibility that the mistake may have been his own. He then takes the statement to the bank and politely asks the teller to check the figures. He doesn't accuse, he asks. How to show humility -
Knowing one's place If I'm not an electrician, it's not my place to tell my electrician how to rewire my socket. I could make suggestions, of course, in a polite, modest and tentative manner, as in, "Excuse me Mr. Electrician, but is it possible that you forgot to put the connector wire in the socket?" Since the electrician is the expert in this situation, it's right of me to ask him, rather than to tell him. It would be rude and out of place for me to tell him how to do his job. 3 Words we need to learn...
"Is it possible...?" For example, when Joe is trying to help his friend Jay with his math homework instead of saying, "JAY, YOU'VE GOT IT ALL WRONG!" he should say, "Is it possible you're making a mistake, Jay?" So why should we be humble? It leads to peace with others
which is our ultimate goal
as a class,
as a school,
as a community,
as a country,
and as a world...
