Humility is smart

The smartest people are those who don’t feel the need to tell you all they know. The most accomplished people are those who don’t feel the need to talk about all they’ve done.

Build on what you know rather than smugly sitting on it and talking about it. Listen, truly listen, and you will learn.

Make good and generous use of your achievements and you won’t have to announce them. Find fulfillment not in seeking praise but in working to have a meaningful, positive affect on the world.

Be smarter, richer, more satisfied and more at peace with life by being genuinely humble. Get your ego out of the way of your ability to bring great value to life.

Genuine humility is smart. Genuine humility is powerful in a way that benefits all of life.

Be smart, and powerful, and a creator of great value. Get beyond the confines of your ego and, with true humility, live a life that lifts up all the world.

— Ralph Marston
