Humble Thyself

The Recovering Pessimist: Humble Thyself-- Remember where you came from and how you got where you are. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist

When I was growing up, the elders in my life reminded me to always stay humble:

Don’t forget where you came from.

Keep the passion and drive that made you successful.

There’s always someone waiting in the wings for you to stumble.

I saw so many people get a taste of success and an ego to match. They just knew they were the bee’s knees and thought nobody could tell them otherwise. Little did they know, the Universe has a way of humbling you. Understanding that is enough of a reminder for me to stay humble.

[bctt tweet=”No matter how successful I become in life, it’s imperative to remember the sleepless nights and the sacrifices that contributed to my success.”]

Struggle is a part of my life and I wouldn’t change that for the world. It forces me to appreciate what I have and work twice as hard for the things I want. I’m forever grateful to my elders, whose wisdom keeps me humble. Stay humble, continue to grind, celebrate your wins, and your losses.

Success awaits you. Make it happen.
