COT: Todays message is about humility – as men, we can be proud, and often, we let our egos get in the way of doing great things beyond our accomplishments, but its important to focus on our our impact towards others.

I am always amazed by folks who have led very successful careers/lives, and wondered what it was that made me want to be more like them. It was never the flashy car they drove, or the nice house they had (although very nice). It was always their consistent humility and care for others. That no matter how successful they were, they never let you feel like they were somehow better than you or made you feel out of place. In my opinion, one of the most undervalued characteristics in a person is humility.

Which reminds me of a quote which says, “self confidence is very important. But without compassion and humility, its just arrogance.”

So, my goal for today for all of you is to maintain humility, and to try and go out of your way to impact someone else before yourself. THANK YOU!
