Be Humble

Servant leadership is the foundation and the secret of Sam Walton’s ability to achieve team synergy.–Michael Bergdahl

Most successful leaders are humble. They live a life of humility. They are what they are. They don’t strive to appear to be more than they really are. They know what they know and what they don’t know. They know what their strengths are and what they need to learn. One definition from Webster’s dictionary for humble is: not proud or haughty: not arrogant or assertive. Another definition is: ranking low in a hierarchy of scale: insignificant; unpretentious. These definitions give us a pretty good feel of the difference between being humble as opposed to proud. There are some leaders that are arrogant and prideful.

Successful leaders understand that everybody screws up. They accept their own failures and mistakes and understand it is all part of the path to success. By understanding this, they show understanding and help to others who fail. They also do not get derailed by their own failures because it’s just part of the process. Successful leaders give of themselves to serve others. Because of their giving, they experience high quality relationships.

Successful leaders fail just like everyone else. What separates them from others is the way they handle their failure and imperfections.

Humility means giving up thinking we know it all or can do it all. It means giving up the thinking that we are better than others, and giving up being defensive. Being a successful leader is being a humble servant. Successful leaders see themselves just like everyone else and they will do all they can to serve those around them. BE HUMBLE

Have an awesome day.
