Am I being humble?

I was taught not to become a snob who over exaggerate their own being, chase after status and satisfied with current achievement. Be humble to yourself. So what is that mean?

Oxford dictionary define humble as:
1. Having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s importance
2. Of low social, administrative, or political rank
3. (of a thing) of modest pretensions or dimensions

How did I interpret this word?
I interpret this word as I am not good enough. I am inferior to majority of public. I will never be a leader. No one need me in their life. I am not capable to support others.

It’s a big difference between being humble and not respecting yourself… don’t confuse the two.

Aman Sharma

What am I missing here? Self respect? How is that related to being humble? I was too caught up in this notion of being humble and missed the point that self-respect should come before being humble.

It’s important to work hard, stay humble, and not let the criticism or the compliments go to your head.

Jessica Sanchez

Success comes to those who dedicate everything to their passion in life.

To be successful, it is also very important to be humble and never let fame or money travel to your head.

A. R. Rahman

So, to stay humble come with hard work. It is staying true to yourself where there is no room for external criticism whilst striving for better. When I am satisfied with my current achievement, I stop growing there because I have put a limitation to my growth.

I’ll never forget where I’m from.

It’s essential to remain humble and evolving.

Freida Pinto

How far did I come? Only I know the answer to this.
How far am I yet to go? Only I can tell myself to stop or keep growing. Future is open-ended at this moment of my life.

How far did you come?
How far are you prepared to go?
Are you ready to move?
