Humble means having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance. That means not allowing your accomplishments, appearance, connections or social status bighead you. Regardless of the success that you have, in your own right, you are no better than anyone. Not to say that you're accomplishments are worthless, but you can damage the worth of your hard work. How? When you allow them to conceit you into the perception that they (your accomplishments) establish you as "better" than other people. Truth is, you are not. Accept this or not, success only defines your work ethic and your talent. Understand that or not, your accomplishments worth are determined by how you grow them from. Every move that you make --personally or professionally-- should be to better your life, better yourself, or in other words to grow. And as you grow, humbleness becomes even more important.
As you grow, personally and professionally, the big picture is clearer than ever. Instead of seeing accomplishments and success in general as money, these things are seen as opportunities to boaster your resume, experience, talent and worth in the world. Even more, accomplishments are milestones that can help identify where you are in terms of reaching your goals and/or dream. As I go on and on about accomplishments, the bottom line is that being humble is not about understanding that you're not better than anyone else, but that your accomplishments, appearance, connections and social status are unessential to what really establish your success, attractiveness, likability or popularity. Regardless of how popular you are, you are not better than anyone else. Truth is, you are most likely popular because you are attractive. Accept this or not, you aren't the only attractive person in the world. Understand that or not, appearance fades.
Look at me, for example. I'm not the most popular guy on social media, in which I realize and accept the fact. Now does that mean I look down on myself? No, never will I. Everyday I work hard to advance in life by achieving goals and learning from the experiences along the way. Truth is, the goals that I set for myself are not the same goals that other people set for themselves. See it as shade, but it's the truth. I always tell myself that the growth of oneself can be seen through his priorities. As I sight the big picture, I don't see social media as a common denominator to whether or not I'm successful. However, I do entertain myself when I allow other people to think so. The point that I hope you understand is that as long as you're humble, your hard work will speak for itself.
If nothing else spotlight you, your success will.
To be humble means you work hard to play hard. When you know that you want something, such as a car, your own apartment or whatever it may be, you hustle to make it happen. To be humble means you celebrate quietly. Instead of bragging to the world about what you have, you let the payoff talk for itself. Lastly, to be humble means you're grateful. Sometimes success can give you more than what you ever could've imagined. It's fair to say, regardless of how hard you work, God deserves just as much credit for what you have and where you are today. On the contrary, it's not always easy being humble when you have people stuck in their own egos and personal interest. However, you should embrace the ungratefulness of other people, because you know that what you've worked hard for has more worth than their ego. If one thing is true, your accomplishments can even look better than you... so just imagine how your accomplishments strip your haters ego apart.
-- Currently imagining my haters face expression as I pass them by. Hi.
Wrapping up, feel beautiful about yourself but never allow the feeling of beauty demise your character or your personality. Looks can be deceiving as your character and personality establish your true beauty. I don't know about you, but I choose to be sexy on the inside and out. I always ask myself, "Why be sexy, and have the worst personality ever and no character?" There's no reason to be sexy and have the worst personality ever. And there's defiantly no reason to be sexy and have no character. I was watching television for the first time the other day and this woman said, "You're treated better when you're pretty. It's the truth." For a woman that may be the case but I cannot confirm that as man. However, I would hope that regardless of how a person looks, they're still treated with respect and dignity. More so, I can confirm that the attention you receive is astounding when you're attractive. It may not always be the attention that you want, but it do come with some great unforeseen benefits. Don't believe me ask some of your Instagram celebrities.
Work hard, play hard, humbly.
