4 Lessons You Learn About Humility While Ambitiously Chasing Success

Helping others succeed

Success is everything but not only about you. It is about people, teamwork and staying humble. Nowadays people respond to your heart. They respond to your generosity and genuine interest in them where having the right sense of humility is the key.

When I started blogging, I thought that I simply write an article and everyone is going to read it because, excuse me, Mrs. Important has something to say. I posted my first few articles, and you know what happened? Nothing. Why should someone come and read it? Why should people be interested in me when I haven’t shown interest in them?

Of course, the quality of the content (product, business, service) is important but being a human and interacting with people and not forgetting where you came from is even more important.

Maybe you are just starting out, and maybe you are fully on the road to reach your goals. Either way, you’ll learn a lot about yourself and the importance of others in your life and why humility has such an impact on the entire process.

Here are 4 lessons you learn while reaching out to those ever wanting goals of your life:

1. Being Humble

As I mentioned at the beginning, people will feel your soul and what’s inside of it, and they will respond. Out there is a countless amount of individuals who made it big and their ego rose to the same proportion. But what in this life is for sure? How do you know that you are safe? When is the time that you honestly know you’ve made it?

I don’t think there is ever a time like it. Shit can hit the fan, and you are back where you started. The most successful people on the Earth have failed big time. It doesn’t matter where you get or how high you reach, you should never look down on others from the top because you were once with them.

“The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust” – Gandhi

Humbleness will be one of most valuable lessons you will learn while overcoming hardships and breaking barriers. Never forget your beginnings, where you started or the obstacles you had to overcome. Keep this in mind, and you will appreciate every person and every little accomplishment along the way.

2. The Magic of Communication

Many of us heard of a book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” from Dale Carnegie. For everyone who wants to win in life, in any area whether your personal or professional life, this book is a must read no matter what.

I, personally, went through so many useless arguments and silly exchange of opinions just because none of us could communicate effectively. Both minds were speaking not rationally, but emotionally. It doesn’t matter, whether you are at home, at work or the CEO of the company. Once you learn how to communicate adequately to anyone you meet in life…

3. You will have to swallow your pride

How hard is it for you to say “I am sorry” or “It is my mistake”? For me, it’s the toughest thing in the world so don’t feel bad. The good news about this is that no matter how hard it seems when you are speaking those words into existence, it makes you grow rapidly as a human being. Mistakes are part of life, and everyone is “guilty” in this area. But not knowing when to take responsibility is a true tragedy.

I believe that pride is more of a mind game. It isn’t real. Pride is a perspective on yourself and who you are. If you see yourself too high, of course, your pride is much higher. But let’s be honest here. How far do think you can get with this mindset?

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” ― C.S. Lewis

There is nothing more devastating in relationships when one side can’t admit they were wrong. This situation is exactly where most of the relationships end. Don’t let people walk over you, but don’t become too difficult to communicate with. Stay humble and listen up.

4. Sharing is Caring

Anytime you have an opportunity to help others, do it. Do it with all your heart because you never know when it’s going to be your turn. Sometimes you can go to Twitter and simply retweet someone’s post and hit them with a comment that you loved it.

They will remember you forever because you took action towards them and benefited them. That’s how you build relationships. That’s how you can show people that you are a down to earth person who is on their level, who speaks their language, who is fun to interact with.

Sharing and communicating with others will be the biggest part of your journey because people are business, people are a market, and people are results. But in order to benefit from it, you must create a genuine respect and care for them with all you got.

Once you understand that you aren’t bigger than anyone else that we all are on the same level here, you can create an amazing community around yourself where people love you and respect you because they believe you deserve it.

Have you ever sent a text message only to have it misinterpreted by the person reading it? Happens all the time. Have you ever given a presentation that you were totally prepared for only to have it fall flat? Happens all the time. Have you ever had someone ask you something like, “Why are you mad?” when you were not at all mad? Happens all the time. (more…)

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!

I can still hear the voices of my older relatives and my elementary school teachers telling me “be disciplined”, “keep at it”, to give time and energy towards what we want. As a young, impressionable child, I believed all those things because well, they made sense. They worked. And honestly, I felt like it’s the only way to flourish. (more…)
