Before understanding more about humility, we must know its meaning. Humility is the state of being humble and respect for others. It also means the ability to give up our pride and still retain our dignity. It makes a person more civilized. Humility includes others values also like patience, kindness, fairness and tolerance.
It is an act without reward. A person who has humility is more responsible, kind, faithful, sensible, caring and cooperative. It is the foundation of leadership. Humility helps us to understand a person and being helpful towards him. It builds trust between two persons and makes their relationship stronger. A teacher can teach his students humility by setting an example of having humility, by helping them to overcome their challenges, by teaching them how to apologize when they are wrong etc.
There are many people who have done something great in life like Sachin Tendulkar and Narendra Modi, but they are very humble in life. Such people when they meet ordinary people they are very respectful towards them. They never show pride in them.
A few months ago Sachin Tendulkar was spotted playing cricket with street children. It was his motivation for the children to play cricket. He didn't think about his celebrity status, it was his love for the cricket and the children who were playing it, which brought him there. It shows his humility. A person can’t become great unless he has moral values in himself.
