Humility – A least endorsed character strength across the globe

Humility is one of the 24 character strengths and also one of the least endorsed strengths across the world. For those who have humility as their signature strength –
Humility is the ability to give up one’s pride and still retain one’s dignity. Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grows. Humility isn’t denying our strengths but being honest about our weaknesses and making the right judgement of ourselves. Without compassion and humility, confidence is just arrogance. True humility is being able to accept criticisms as graciously as we accept compliments. All streams flow to the ocean as it is lower than they are Humility gives it its power.

“Being humble means recognizing that we are not on earth to see how important we can become, but to see how much difference we can make in the lives of others.” President Gordon B. Hinckley.
