6 Things You Can Do To Be More Humble

"When you're flawless in every aspect," an old country song goes, "it's hard to be modest." Of fact, few people believe they are flawless in every manner. However, being humble might be difficult, especially if you live in a society that values competitiveness and uniqueness. Nonetheless, humility is a vital attribute in such a culture. In most spiritual traditions, learning to be humble is of essential importance, and humility may help you develop more completely and enjoy richer connections with others, as well as open doors and win respect. Below are things you can do to be more humble

1. Recognize and accept your flaws.

There are instances when we criticise others for their imperfections, but what benefit do we gain from doing so? Rather, we should examine ourselves and determine what is wrong with us. Being judgmental can only produce problems in relationships, and we will forget that we, too, need to grow. Instead of pointing out and criticizing others' flaws, one should think about how they may bring change to themselves.

2. Accept the fact that you may not be the best at everything.

We recognize your abilities! But keep in mind that there will always be someone who is better than you at what you do best. It may be your most valuable skill, but that doesn't make you the "greatest" in the world. This is an idea that has to be toned down a notch. Even if you are, ostensibly and entirely "hypothetically," there are some duties you will be unable to do. You have limitations, which you must admit as you study everything there is to learn in the world.

3. Don't be afraid to make mistakes

Understanding that you will make mistakes is a part of being humble. Understanding this, as well as the fact that everyone makes mistakes, will relieve you of a great load. This isn't to say that you should be careless; strive to prevent obvious errors, but don't be hesitant to attempt new methods or approaches to achieving your objectives. Each person can only see a little portion of life at a time. People who are older and wiser than you will always exist. Although you must make the decision based on your knowledge of them, your elders' perspectives may be worth listening to.

4. Don't brag about yourself.

It's fine to have a good sense of self-worth and to be proud of your achievements, but no one appreciates it when someone is continually trying to draw attention to themselves and their accomplishments. If you truly believe you have accomplished something significant, chances are that others have already noticed, and they will appreciate you the more for your modesty. This isn't to imply that you should lie about something you've accomplished; if someone asks if you've run a marathon, it's completely appropriate to reply yes. But don't go on and on about how amazing you were for completing the marathon or accomplishing other goals.

5. Don't be concerned about your status.

Make no attempt to connect with people in order to improve oneself. Is that somebody capable of making me appear good? Will having that job make me seem good? Do you have that house? That partner? Rather than trying to enhance yourself, attempt to elevate others. Others should be served. What do we want others to say about us when they speak at our funeral? What about our core values? Will they attest to the fact that our lives were marked by humility? "She had humility, she had what mattered," will they say? Because humble people inspire trust and confidence in others around them, humility is essential for leadership. Pride is anti-social, but humility is ideal for both others and ourselves, because it is who we were created and redeemed to be.

6. Pay attention to what others are saying.

Listening to others demonstrates that we are prepared to learn from them, that we want to learn from them, whether they are adults or children, from whatever background they come from, whether they are Christian or Muslim. We feel loved when we are listened to. Listening to others demonstrates our love for them and acknowledges that we can learn from them.
