Every human being should know how to keep himself checked. Including me. It’s human nature that we exalt ourselves, in words and in thoughts.
A famous humble person in your neighborhood is not always humble. Even the most useless, most pathetic, most self-pity citizen can be airhead sometimes.
This does not mean to lose your self-esteem. There is also a thing called “false humility.” Like thinking negatively about oneself.
1. There will always be better than you. There will always be more handsome than me, hehe, and you. There will always be prettier than you. There will always be more intelligent than you.
2. We are not perfect. We all make mistakes. You may have a perfect rating in a math quiz yesterday, but there’s a time that you could not make it to 100%.
3. Ask God for the ability to be humble. For me this should come first. For non-believers, it’s up to you. But this one greatly helps me. Though i sometimes fail to use that ability. Silly me. 😉
4. Acknowledge others. Give God, your family, friends, your teacher, classmate, office mate, strangers, the drive the credit for what have become now.
Thank you God for making me Gwapito! 😀 See, i’m humble. I gave God the credit for my good looks.
