Humility 1100 Words You Need Week 27 Day 4

/hjuːˈmɪl.ɪ.ti/ (noun)

the state of not being proud or arrogant, meekness, humbleness, modesty, respectfulness, self-effacement, unpretentiousness, shyness

Everybody makes mistakes but not everyone is willing to admit their mistake or even say that they were wrong. It really takes guts and humility to admit that you are wrong and to say sorry, but admitting your mistake and taking responsibility for it is more important than anything else.

If you know you’re going to lose, lose with style and dignity. This will command respect and honor. Acknowledging another person’s achievements will show class, even if that person is pitted against you. Showing humility and class will result in getting respect. Respect will then lead you to success.
