Humility In the Community

vs. arrogance

Recognizing the people and factors that have shaped my life

To practice Humility, I will:

  • give credit to others
  • admit mistakes
  • ask for help when I need it
  • realize my way is not the only way
  • think of myself less often

Be Teachable

Humility is having a realistic view of your strengths and weaknesses.  If you can’t admit to your weaknesses, you can’t get help for them to improve.  Being teachable and willing to reach out for assistance takes Humility.  Accepting help is not a sign of weakness but rather of strength and wisdom.  It is how you learn and grow.  Hidden weaknesses will never improve on their own.  Being teachable means that you are willing, in fact, eager to listen to another’s idea or alternate approach.  You are always open to different perspectives as a way to broaden your skills or your outlook.
