“Talent is God-given. Be humble.
Fame is man-given. Be grateful.
Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”
– John Wooden
How many people do you know who like a show-off or a braggart? I can’t think of many. In fact, it is not very pleasant to be in the company of someone who gloats over their successes. In Australia, there is even an expression for people who flaunt their large egos and then are brought down to earth by others who resent it: the tall poppy syndrome. Tall poppies often get cut down to size.
Do you flaunt your feathers OR are you humble?
