Live with humility

Humility is surprisingly empowering. Sincerely putting others first is an excellent way to get yourself ahead.

When you decline to grab the credit for the good things you do, others will be much more willing to work with you. When you’re not afraid to admit you don’t know it all, others will be happy to help you learn.

Boasting will never earn you any positive impressions. It mainly makes you look foolish and insecure.

Choose instead to regularly look at life from other peoples’ perspectives. Do what is best not for you alone, but what is best for everyone involved.

It is nearly impossible to achieve real success by being centered only on yourself. The best thing you can do for you is to consider what’s best for everyone else.

Always remember that true greatness does not have to be announced. Live with humility, with compassion and positive purpose, and live with that true greatness.

— Ralph Marston
