Humility is modesty or humbleness and is a great trait when practiced properly and consistently. Humility demands great respect and people will look upon you as the leader when you have the maturity to admit your mistakes, take responsibility of faults of your own and do not take merit for your achievements, do not boast of your self, and talk aimlessly. People will talk about you once you are gone. So, humility is the hall mark of great people and leaders.
“If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings “, goes a welsh proverb. You should have the state of mind to correct your mistakes when pointed out which is the peak of humility. “No body stands taller than those willing to stand corrected “said William Safire. Humility gives you the opportunity to prepare yourself for all the possible changes in life. When this mind set is gained, no hurdle will stand in your way to success.
