The practice of humility is an essential daily exercise. When you show humility, you inspire silent respect from others. Humility not only fosters personal growth, but it keeps your ego from over-reacting, which prevents arguments and curbs your tendency to be defensive. Humility reminds us that we still have a lot to learn. And, no matter how much we think we know, when compared to the magnificence of the Universe we live in, what we know is really only a drop in the ocean of life.
