It can go from zero to one hundred quick and back down to zero so be humble!
You've heard it all your life: Being #humble, kind, and calm is the "right thing to do." But if that isn't enough to convince you, consider this: humility, kindness, and calmness can actually help you get ahead in life.
Confidence is key to getting ahead in life. It helps you do better at #work, in relationships, and in interviews. Overconfidence, however, can make you seem like a genuine jerk. We all know that one person that thinks they are the strongest, smartest, and just all around best at everything. Truthfully, we all dislike that person to some degree.
So, while #confidence is essential, it's important to stay humble as well (the two aren't as contradictory as you might think).
Think about it before you start hatting on my post.
Here are the benefits of being humble:
✔️Calms your soul.
Humble people are better able to cope with anxiety about their mortality. Instead of erecting self-defenses against death, humble people tend to find it provides a useful perspective on life and how it should be lived. When it's not all about you, it makes death easier to contemplate.
Having high self-control is one key to a successful life. Oddly, perhaps, studies have found that an #obsession with the self can paradoxically lead to lower self-control. The humble, though, because they place less importance on the self, exhibit higher self-control in many situations. Perhaps this is partly due to the fact that humble people tend to know their limits. 🤔
Humble people are, on average, more helpful than people who are conceited or egotistical. Unsurprisingly, humble people have also been found to be more generous.
