The word of the day for 30 October is: Humility.

Humility is defined as the quality of having a modest or low opinion of ones importance.

CS Lewis described humility as not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less.

Sometimes we need to step back and let go of our pride. If something good is done, why is it necessary to take full credit? Why not just let the light shine on the good deed, not who did it?

Saint Augustine said, It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.

When we are prideful, we lose sight of what is really important who we are, and what our values are, and we can land up losing people who are important to us.

We do not need to be arrogant in our achievements or in our daily lives. We cannot forget where we come from and who we are as people just because we have achieved something. Helping others and making them as happy as you are is an uplifting and rewarding experience.

Zig Ziglar said, What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
