FOOD FOR THOUGHT – 1ST OF MAY 2020

DAILY NUGGET

“There is thin line between confidence and arrogance. It is called humility. Confidence smiles while arrogance smirks”

EAT-IN

According to Mother Theresa, ‘we learn humility through accepting humiliation cheerfully’. Often times, people who are successful feel they do not need the assistance of others. Some are very ruthless in their handling of other people. Most successful people feel people need strong leadership, they feel their success has nothing to do with their strength, their image of being strong includes having answers to everything and not asking people for help and not making mistakes. Real genius is nothing else but the supernatural virtue of humility in the domain of thought.

You should understand that the higher you are placed the more humbly you should walk; and   note that you learn nothing from life if you think you are right all the time. We have the choice of being humble or stumble. We cannot achieve greatness unless we lose all interest in being great. We would have to be humble in the outside and confident in the inside.

The mistakes that makes humble is better than an achievement that makes you arrogant. In fact, sometimes, people praise leaders rather than draw their attention to their mistakes. Wise leaders appreciate being told they have made a mistake; they don’t see it as humiliation. Good leaders give credit to their subordinates who have the courage to draw their attention to issues that require rethinking.

The fact is that when you have done something wrong, admit it and be sorry. No one in history has ever chocked to death from swallowing pride.

Success is borne out of arrogance but greatness comes from humility
