Always be Humble.

You know, I wanted to take a minute to talk about something that has been bothering me.

Humble-–adjective 1. not proud or arrogant; modest: to be humble although successful.

I don’t think we as a collective society are humble enough. I think we as a collective society walk around with an air of entitlement. I suppose that is why the state of the nation is the way it is. Not enough people are humble in their day to day life. Too many people walk around thinking they have the right to say what they want and do what they want, when they feel, no matter the consequence.

See, when you put something out there, or when you act a certain way, you create a perception of yourself. We don’t have the ability to take back our words or actions. Once you put your thoughts out there and you say your words, they will fall where they may in the mind of the person you are directing them to.

and sometimes, the damage you have created cannot be undone. I ask you this, before you speak words from your mouth or before you act upon something, take a minute to really think about how it might effect the person you are directing it to.  After all arrogance is not an attractive attribute.
