Why Is Humility So Underrated?

A universal characteristic of genius is humility. — David Hawkins

Good News of the Day:
Generally we don’t equate genius with being humble. If anything, we expect the opposite, and are pleasantly surprised when we find a counterexample. But this presumption is actually relatively modern. Ancient Romans believed that a genius was actually an invisible, divine entity who would assist a person in a creative work. In effect, this view positions a person as an instrument of their work, as opposed to the supreme creator of it; built-in to this perspective was a way of fostering humility within the gift of extraordinary capability. Viral Mehta, long-time visionary of DailyGood, shares an insightful article on humility. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4654

Be The Change:
Practice humility by listening deeply to a point of view you disagree with.
