Do you live your life with the virtue of humility? It’s defined along with a feeling of unworthiness which sounds kinda bad. I wrote about knowing your worth but not forgetting what it means to be humble and stay that way. Sometimes that can be especially difficult considering our lifestyles, professions, or family dynamics. My humility has always been there which enabled spiritual signs to manifest. It’s a tricky area for sure but I mention it often in my book Spirit and Belief.
I know many naysayers will think Warrior was not a humble guy or at least when he was in the business of wrestling. Deep down, he genuinely was but didn’t show it very often considering the character he portrayed for years. Being humble could mean vulnerability or a weakness and we can’t have that in a sport, can we? Warrior knew his humble roots but success has a way of pushing humility aside for a bit. It’s once you step away for a while and gain a new perspective that humility returns to your heart.
For me, I sometimes struggle with too much humility. Many times I felt unworthy of a relationship, success with my writing, or even motherhood. I finally changed my attitude and got back on track with better thinking.
How do you handle humility warriors? Is it easy for you to remain that way or are there times when too much gets you a big ego? I think it’s both for all of us. By being grateful everyday, your humility will stay intact. Make a gratitude list and read it out loud. Repeat it over and over. Once that becomes a practice, your heart will glow with humility and it’ll take you far.
Even though many of us have careers that can be very competitive, always stay humble. Don’t do every favor, errand, or coffee run and become a doormat. DO fight for yourself but do it with pride. I included this shot of Warrior signing autographs since never did I before and it shows such a different side of him. He was humble with these fans while remembering and listening to them. Great YouTube videos by Andrew William Wright from the 2005 London Expo. So glad to have found these and I thank him for keeping them active.
Once you look back on an area of your life and how you were then, does humility come to mind? Without humbleness we think way too much of ourselves and then expect everything all the time. What happens is we either boast about being better or don’t think of ourselves very highly at all. We need that scale balanced always. If we do too much, we’re arrogant or self-centered. If we do too little, we are not noticed or weak.
The balance looks different for all but YOU need to examine which areas need more heart and humility. It was very hard for Warrior considering his introverted and seemingly “distant” behavior. I truly believe he didn’t want his feelings exposed because of past hurts. I get it as am sure some do as well. I’m not defending every action he took but again, perspective happens when we move on and begin a new era of our life. That’s exactly what Warrior did. We all need to step back or away and return to humility.
Humbleness has its own yin and yang pull on us but keep that rope in the middle. You can be the most extroverted, intense, cutthroat business person ever but also allow for others to enjoy the spotlight too. You can be the most introverted, quiet, giving the shirt off your back kind of person ever but remember you deserve greatness too.
Keep your own heart of humility with whatever path your life takes you. No doubt it’s gonna be rough depending on which road you travel on. Maybe your humble nature disappears but then it comes back. Maybe it needs to be amped up or perhaps turned down. Wherever your level of humility is at, keep it close and never abandon it.
Be humble yet own your self-respect as a balancing act. The heart of humility is indeed a wonderful virtue to possess so be thankful every single day. Your humbleness will be ultimate if you give your whole heart just like a true warrior. ❤️
