Humility is such an important characteristic in the life of a leader. Most people dislike and distrust those who are “full of themselves” no matter what there successes. However, all appreciate true humility.
So much of life’s frustration, pain and unhappiness comes because we make ourselves the centre of our lives. We insist on living motivated by a self-regard that throws life out of focus.
One of the surest evidences of greatness is a humble spirit. A humble person can neither be put down or exalted – they remain the same under all circumstances.
Leadership requires that men and women recognize what they have to do and get on with the job. They don’t expect recognition for every achievement.
True leadership happens when people want to see the work done and they care little about who gets credit. There are those who humility and seek more praise for there accomplishments, which gives them a greater assurance for there worth.
Leaders because of their nature, tend to have a blind spot. You may need a close advocate and trusted friend to give you feedback on how you are coming across to people. You are in a constant state of change, so leaders need constant appraisal.
