Humility

Our Words for the Week: A few examples on Humility

Columnist Rick Reilly gave this advice to rookie professional athletes: “Stop thumping your chest. The line blocked, the quarterback threw you a perfect spiral while getting his head knocked off, and the good receiver drew the double coverage. Get over yourself.”

The truth is, every touchdown in life is a team effort. Applaud your teammates.

An elementary-age boy came home from the tryouts for the school play. “Mommy, Mommy,” he announced, “I got a part. I’ve been chosen to sit in the audience and clap and cheer.”

When you have a chance to clap and cheer, do you take it?

If you do, your head is starting to fit your hat size.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it.

  1. Humility must be stillborn
    for a bloke as great as me,
    for not to loudly blow my horn
    would be insanity.
    I easily outdo most men,
    soundly defeat the rest.
    Failure is beyond my ken;
    I simply am the best
    at anything I deign to do,
    and anything I try.
    When, by winning, I am through
    I make the legends cry.
    And for my next (and perfect) act,
    I shall become a coach for tact.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
