People without humility appear proud, conceited, and self-important.  Their egos make them difficult to approach, and they are pretentious and boastful.  On the other hand, people who are humble tend to know their limits, have better self-control, and are typically more generous.

Enemies of Humility:

  • Defensiveness – Being defensive prevents us from gaining perspective that will make us better.
  • Entitlement – Entitled people always believe that the world owes them.
  • Lack of experience – Lack of experience can lead to inflated and inaccurate self-perceptions.  Exposure is vital!

Humility is the highest virtue, mother of them all!”  – Alfred Lord Tennyson
