Be Humble Day 2/22/23

Today is Be Humble Day, an important reminder to all of us that no matter our successes or failures, we always have more to learn, and always remain humble. A quote from the great Ralph Waldo Emerson rings true: “If humility could be sold in the market, one should say the world would be emptied of pride.”

Humility is about recognizing our own strengths and weaknesses, and never believing that we are always right. It also means accepting criticism with grace and being able to forgive ourselves for when we make mistakes. It’s an essential trait for collaborative work and relationships, being able to recognize that our team members might have different perspectives and can bring to the table different strengths and experiences.

In a world where individualism and self-promotion are seen as prestigious and desirable characteristics, having humility can be seen as a weakness. However, it is an invaluable trait that can lead us to greater understanding, greater empathy, and even better collaboration.

By remembering to take a moment to be humble, we can become better friends, family members, colleagues, and people in general. So on this day, let us remember to be humble and recognize our potential–both as individuals and part of a collective. Let’s strive to treat each other with respect and recognize that everyone has something valuable to bring to the table.
