“Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long; even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.”-Louisa May Alcott

“Talent is God-given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”-John Wooden

Good evening SQers! After a bit of a break, I have returned!  My finals went well and now I am celebrating the start of summertime. How have you all been? I’ve missed writing and I hope you all are as excited  as I am for return of my posts. Without further blabbing from me, let’s get into today’s post.

Success as I have mentioned a bunch of times is not something that comes easy. It comes as the result of hard work, commitment and perseverance.  There is nothing wrong with being proud of your accomplishments and celebrating them. The problem starts when someone becomes arrogant or cocky. Now think about it…you’ve all been there..having a not-so-stellar day or couple of days. When some jerk comes bounding in spewing their holier-than-thou attitude because some “magical” has happened to them. Normally you’re a fairly amicable person, you congratulate them and brush it off being genuinely happy for this person. As if that gratitude and praise was not enough, this jerk decides to escalate everything a couple notches and openly how declare that because of this “wondrous event” that they are now too good for their usual, immune to hard work..etc. This is where the whole charade gets a little too much to swallow.  You are extremely blessed in your life when everything goes right, but that doesn’t mean you are suddenly better than everyone else.

On a similar note, it doesn’t do you much good to be too modest either. When the time is appropriate you need to be able to talk about yourself and your accomplishments. Being on either extreme isn’t all that helpful.  The best road is the middle and  to be moderately modest.  Be proud and celebrate your accomplishmentswithout putting other people down in the process.  Be humble enough to remember where you came from and that your successes didn’t come without hard work. Also, how just as easily things could have gone differently. Lastly, be the kind of person you want to surround yourself with. That’s all for now. Have a great week!

See you next Sunday,

❤ SQ
