Hope everyone is doing well!
Do people only dislike other people for being cocky because they doubt themselves? Personally, I do not mind it much when people brag about what they have achieved or have done.
More often than not, I know they never intentionally mean any harm by doing so.
Why should I mind? Tell us what you need to have done now! They are so deep in their beliefs that it is never their fault that they instantly create excuses to justify their reasoning, and if you try to point out their lack of logic, they will not listen at all.
They are so involved in their own ego that thinking something else almost seems impossible. If you disagree or would like to add anything, please leave a comment below explaining your reasoning so we may correct this article.
I have come to conclude that many people believe they are humble when in fact, they are not. First of all, I strongly believe that your environment shall be a strong determinant on whether it is the right place and time to be humble.
Not everyone will have read articles like you are reading this one, therefore, not everyone may be as understanding as you. Do not mistake being humble with being confident because there is a difference.
Confidence is having a strong locus of control. That means you truly believe that you will obtain the positive outcomes you desire no matter how the process goes. An example of being humble is being able to maintain composure when someone criticizes you, and not letting your ego get the best of you.
We must strive to remember how to behave during tough situations. In other countries, people tend to be less direct, or more humble during business or discussions.
America tends to be more direct, and if people who tend to be more direct are less understanding and less able to recognize one who is less direct during a conversation, we must remember that there is a potential that the humble person may be perceived as a weak individual, whether it be physically, mentally, or via business.
I propose we be humble, confident, and persistent. Let us advance in life by remembering to remain humble during proper moments because it is those moments which shape our destiny. Being humble is the same as having a student mentality, and it is much more difficult to learn when we lack a student mentality.
We simply become less receptive to knowledge.
Also, you may want to keep in mind that cockiness and talking about what you want to do may cause people to resent you, and people often do not like to see cocky or arrogant individuals rise above levels which they themselves have yet to achieve. It is easier to rise above when we remain humble because people will like us better.
Another good reason to be humble is because we never know when the tables might turn and it will be us in their shoes that would appreciate that respect and humbleness back.
Some champions I know agree with the following statement: If someone is not so humble, strive to be more understanding of them.
Strive to remember how our world works. I am confident they are better than they may seem.Question: "What does the Bible say about humility?" Answer: The Bible describes humility as meekness, lowliness, and absence of self.
The Greek word translated “humility” in Colossians and elsewhere literally means “lowliness of mind,” so we see that humility is a heart attitude, not merely an outward demeanor.
Prayer: Being Humble Prayer. The Master of the universe invites us to come into His presence, to bring our worries and concerns, to bring our longings, to bring our brokenness, to bring our questions, our frustrations, our hopes and dreams.
At the time, not only was I being totally serious, I also felt really proud of myself for being so humble.
Here was the problem. That whole theory unraveled for me in my first few months of marriage. It's tough because being humble tends to create a weak image of oneself and we end up looking like push-overs.
It's tough because people like to see confident individuals and being humble is something people associate with being weak. Being humble does not mean to think low of yourself. We need to learn to evaluate our true worth. No person in this world can do nothing 🙂 Meaning every person in this world can achieve what he wants just learn to evaluate yourself, trust yourself, be determined and GO FOR IT!
