Humility - It Makes Us Strong Not Weak

"I believe the first test of a truly great man is his humility. I do not mean by humility, doubt of his own powers. But really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not in them, but through them. And they see something divine in every other man."
--John Ruskin

It has taken me a long time to fully understand what real humility is and what it can do for you personally, professionally and spiritually. Like many others I had to have real life setbacks such as the loss of my wife and job to bring this lesson home. When I finally did open my eyes and heart I found the power that true humility can provide.

With humility we see what harm pride, hubris, and ego can do to us ...

"A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
(Proverbs 29:23)

With real humility with also find great strength to help us through life's setbacks ...

"It takes humility to seek feedback. It takes wisdom to understand it, analyze it, and appropriately
act on it."
--Stephen R. Covey First Things First

In both my career coaching practice and the ministry work that I do I see many people who have also learned this valuable lesson. It gives me strength and encouragement to see this awakening in others. I can only wish this blessing on anyone who is reading this blog now and has not learned this lesson.
