In a world where everyone craves the attention of others, humility is a trait that seems archaic. Everyone wants the most likes on Instagram or the most attention on TikTok for doing some of the most egregious things. Some people have lost themselves; pretending to be people they are not for people they will never meet. The trait of humility works hand in hand with the traits of patience and persistence. After all, it takes humility to fail over and over again and still get up and try again. Ego is the enemy of yourself. Even in the GrecoRoman Era the philosophers of that considered that pride went before a fall. The act of being prideful actually closes off the mind to the possibily of new knowledge.
You are never too big to fail
Ego is the enemy and inhibits your ability to learn
Ego is the enemy and is dangerous without control
Too much ego leads to overconfidence
