The Power of Humility In Life

Audio Version:

Humility can be the greatest gift of all to have. You just gotta ask for help. Crazy part is people do not do it.

A quick example of how deep humbleness goes. If you live in the European Union. You can go to 100s of banks to ask for a loan for whatever it is you wanna do. I bet if you actually did this you can probably have 1 million euros in your hands in a year from now. I don’t have that humility and you also probably don’t have it. So with that simple example you can see how you always can be more humble in life. Instead of being the person who “already knows everything”.

Your framework in life should be “I do not know anything about anything” so a constant learning process. Now the crazy part about humility is how it keeps giving you more the more you seem to do it. An endless stream of good stuff. It never ends! It’s like the universe ALWAYS expanding. If knowledge is infinite do you know how insane that is? No end! So crazy we cant even wrap our minds around limitless knowledge.

Nothing Will Stay The Same! 

The problem with being in the mindset of thinking “I already know everything” is that you will stop growing and evolve. And as we know nature is always shifting. You just gotta look outside your window every month to see how things are constantly shifting. So if everything is always changing that means you have to develop a harmony in your life to move along with nature. And not get stuck in old habits or routines.

Focus on taking care of other humans and you won’t have to worry about your own needs. Clearly if you put focus on how you can make other people’s dream come true nature will take care of your needs too. Most people are stuck in a scarcity mindset where they think they are limited in what they can do in life. But just remember that what one man can do, another man can do. Just requires that you actually do take action and starts to move in the direction you want to go.

Progress! Not going back!

Remember that it’s not the end result that we actually want. Surely it will be nice but even that will be a fleeting moment. The main thing we wanna feel in our life is that we are making progress right now and is moving in the right direction. So the criteria for success for me has become “did I make progress today” or “Am I still growing in life?”. What I do is that I constantly write down all my ideas that I find valuable so I don’t forget.

Goals and habits in life are very important but probably of more importance is that you have written down some kind of vision or purpose in life. I do this on a regular basis and do constant new updates to my vision. I listen a lot to my heart to try to be perfectly aligned with what my spirit tells me to do.

There is a great book by Stephen Covey called The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. That talks a lot about great ways to structure your life. Here is a good quote from that book:

Don’t let boredom run your life when everyday could be exciting!

We have this idea that you should pick a job and then stay in that niche for the rest of your life. How limiting! Maybe we are here to just experience life and do a new job every couple years or so. Especially when we really start to get bored of something. That is usually a sign there is time for change. A lot of people are being very resistant to change. They want things to stay the same.

But they too have also forgot that things will never stay the same. They have never stayed the same in history. Evolution is constantly making tweaks and as we see with our current technology we are now in a rapid stage of development into a new arena. An arena where it will be critical you don’t stay ignorant. But that you constantly keep educating yourself. So you can deal with any sort of future adversity that may show up.

Magic Fantasy Land!

Humility will also remove a lot of pressure a lot of people put on themselves. That they need to become something or be something magical. You don’t.

There is a lot of vanity in our current time a total obsession with that every should “Make it”. Which puts even more pressure on humans feeling like they must do something “Amazing” in their life. You really don’t.

The starting point should always be that you are perfect the way you are because your inner core spirit never changes. It always stays pure and same. From this realisation that you are good and perfect already you can move from a calm state into doing other things in life.

Also you should remember that most of your problems someone else in the past have had and wrote down a solution to. So really important to keep getting exposed to new quality information Ralph Waldo Emerson has a great book called Self-Reliance and Other Essays that speaks a lot about relying on yourself to do most things and use the help of wise people to guide you forward. Here is a beautiful quote from that book:

He speaks a lot about the importance of living in harmony with nature. And observing all of life around you.

Have Bigger Dreams To Get Excited!

Vanity and self-importance get’s so boring after a while. You get tired of yourself. And you wanna help others in life. Now the irony is that once you start to help others and focus less on yourself you will actually feel better than with the vanity feeling you got in the past.

It will feel better because you feel like you are a part of something bigger than just yourself. It puts off the pressure on your shoulders to carry the whole load. There is a lot of help out there to get, you just gotta work on not being so afraid to ask for help. It takes humility to ask for help.

People have a massive fear of rejection and I may talk about that in another blog post. The fear of rejection is a big thing that holds most people back in life.
