9 examples of humility

in #spanish6 years ago

Humility is a characteristic that consists in being aware of our virtues and defects and acting according to this. It is the opposite of pride and arrogance. And it is a fundamental value to coexist harmoniously in society.

People who act with humility are modest and simple, have no superiority complexes and deeply respect the people in their environment. Therefore, here are some examples of humility.

Ask for help when we need it

We can not do everything by ourselves. Many times we need the help, support or guidance of other people. Humility also implies recognizing in the other qualities that we lack.

Accept your own limitations

Humility manifests itself in self-knowledge, in knowing what we are capable of, how far we can go, and what our strengths and weaknesses are. This self-awareness is a very important form of humility.

Be modest in the face of success

We can not be proud of our achievements. In the face of success, it is important to practice modesty, not blame our conquests or be proud. Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes we are up, other times we have to see the panorama from below.

Admit when we do not know something

We can not know everything. Sometimes we find ourselves in fields or subjects that we do not master, for that reason, it is important to recognize it and ask someone else to explain or help us understand. Sometimes, the awareness that we do not know leads us, in the long run, to learn much more.

Do not be afraid of making mistakes

We can all be wrong. In fact, we are all wrong all the time. Mistakes are teachers in life, teach us important lessons and help us to be better.

Be always open to learn

The permanent desire to learn speaks very well of us. We can not know everything, that's why sometimes we need to read, consult or ask to find out and inform us about some things.

Know how to win (and lose)

It is not always won, but it is not always lost either. You have to practice balance and modesty. Successes bring joy, but they do not have to translate into arrogance. And defeats can sometimes be frustrating, but we should not let ourselves be carried away by rage. Both situations teach us the value of humility: respect the adversary and value our effort and that of the other.

Recognize the value of others

The other people who are part of our lives are important. Sometimes they reach out to us, sometimes they support us or guide us, and sometimes they also need us. Recognizing their value is a fundamental practice in humility.

Share the credit

Sometimes we have the opportunity to take credit for a job in which we participate together with other people. However, it is important to share the credit with those who also deserve it. Not only out of respect, it is also a way to value the contributions and value of others.
