"True humility is intelligent self respect"

Ralph Washington Sockman, senior pastor of Christ Church in New York, once said, “True humility is intelligent self respect which keeps us from thinking too highly or too meanly of ourselves. It makes us modest by reminding us how far we have come short of what we can be.” It is true that once someone achieves great things in life, he becomes self confident because his morale is boosted. Having confidence in oneself is important but having too much self confidence can ruin a person. A person with immense self confidence thinks too highly of himself and becomes egoistic. He feels that he has achieved all his objectives and does not have the motivation to strive harder.

Humility keeps a person firm on the ground and makes him aware of future goals that are pending. As individuals, we have a number of goals in life. So, it is important that we do not lose focus once we achieve a goal. Many people have the misconception that humility and modesty have a negative impact on a person’s confidence level. This is not true. In fact, studies have shown that humility is not equivalent to low self esteem. In fact, humility is about focusing on the unknown instead of the known. So, a modest person, instead of gloating and boasting of his past achievements, will focus on tasks he needs to complete in the future, of which the outcome is unknown.

Many people find it difficult to practice humility. One way to be humble is by acknowledging that you may not have the answers to all the questions and that you have a lot to learn. By doing so, you automatically open the doors of knowledge and are on a road of lifelong learning. By gaining more knowledge, you gain confidence and self respect. This is why true humility is intelligent self respect.
