Be Humble In All Situations with Your Self Respect

True humility comes from self-respect. When we are full and in our state of self-respect, we will be able to remain humble in all situations. When there is no self-respect, any comments or criticism hurts the ego and we tend to lose our humility. When I find myself getting affected by criticism, I need to check whether I am sure of what I'm doing. Let me look within myself and see what specialties I have that I can use in my daily life. So when I increase my own confidence in this way and do everything with this confidence, I'll be humble.

Move Forward With Courage

Even when things go wrong to have the courage is to ensure progress. Mistakes do happen, but we must keep our heart happy and have the courage for the future. Whatever happens there is always a lesson to be learnt which would be useful for the future. All we need to do is to take this learning and move forward with courage. When things go wrong in a big way we need to remember that those obstacles have come to make us stronger. Let us take the determined thought not to lose courage whatever happens. When we maintain courage we will find things turning out the best.

Tolerance Enables One to Learn and Improve

Tolerance enables one to learn from mistakes. When one is sure of what he is doing and he is in his stage of self-respect, criticism can be taken in the right way. This will give the ability to look within when something goes wrong. Instead of justifying mistakes there will be the ability to learn from them and improve. When someone criticises us, we need to remind ourselves that we have something to learn from it. Let us ask ourselves if there is at least a small aspect that we could learn from and incorporate in our life. Let us take this aspect and leave the rest.

Fulfill Your Responsibilities Powerfully

The one who works in coordination with others is the one who can fulfill responsibilities well. Responsibilities can be fulfilled well when there is the recognition that each one can contribute something to the task. It is also essential to create a cooperative rather than a competitive environment. Then there would be no feeling of superiority or inferiority in anyone. When we are responsible to complete some task, we need to involve all the people who can help in it. When we do this we will find our task finishing faster. Also we would find that we would get the good wishes of all the people involved in the task.

Love Brings the Power to Forgive.

The one who has love and is able to forgive is the one who brings lightness. Love brings the power to forgive. When we love someone it is very easy to forgive even when something goes wrong. Then we are able to do something to better the situation. This environment of lightness based on forgiveness inspires the other person to contribute too. This brings about learning and progress without any feeling of heaviness. When we find someone making a mistake, let us remind ourselves that if we have to help the person progress we have to forgive. Along with it let us learn from the mistake myself and provide an environment of lightness and learning for the other person too. Then the mistake will never be repeated helping him to move forward with lightness.
