Humility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier it is to feel peaceful on the inside.
“There’s nothing more POWERFUL than a humble person with a warrior spirit, driven by a bigger purpose.” – unknow Author
Wanting to always prove yourself is a dangerous trap of pride and ego. It takes an enormous amount of energy to be continually pointing out your accomplishments, bragging; these actually dilute the positive feeling you receive from a feat or something you are proud of. To make matters worse, the more you try to prove yourself, the more others will avoid you, talk behind your back about your insecure need to brag, and perhaps even resent you.
Ironically, however, the less you care about seeking approval, the more approval you seem to get. People are drawn to those with a quiet, inner confidence; people who don’t need to make themselves look good, or be right all the time, or steal the glory. Many people virtually love a person who doesn’t need to brag about his or her laurels, but a person who shares his or her heart and not his or her ego.
The way to develop genuine humility is to practice. It’s nice because you will get immediate inner feedback in the way of calm, easy feelings.
The next time you have an opportunity to be humble, endeavor to do it earnestly, and don’t brag about it. Instead, remember the following statement:
“A person can achieve anything by being simple and humble. ” – unknown.
