Don't get too cocky. Life will always find a way to humble you.
In life, it is easy to get a little over confident or cocky, especially when success seems to be all that you encompass. Instead of getting too cocky, we have to be willing to find a way to humble ourselves. One of the best ways to do this is to simply stop thinking of us, and our accomplishments, and to switch our focus to helping others to become successful as well. To be humble one must not be willing to think of oneself as less, but one must be willing to think of himself, less, as quoted by evangelist Rick Warren.
