Pride Comes Before a Fall

Weak people can be wildly successful because they aren’t too proud to ask for help.

Are you ever weak?

If someone has a weakness holding them back, the first step is admitting it.  Don’t try to hide it.  We can see.  Don’t try to fake it.  We all know.  Don’t try to control it. You can’t fix it yourself.

Just admit it and ask for help.

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace”

– 3,000 year old Hebrew Proverb (King Solomon)

Don’t think this applies to you?  I need a little reminder myself sometimes.

We all have weakness!

I almost got fired from my first leadership job after school because I was too proud to admit what I didn’t know.  I alienated my team.  Performance fell apart.

I fell.

We may be skilled at many things, but we all have a weaknesses somewhere that will bite us if we’re too proud.

  • If we’re too proud to ask for help, we alienate those who can help us.
  • If we’re too proud to learn, the teachers will leave us.
  • If we’re too proud to admit our weakness, we fall behind.

It’s something to think about tomorrow.

Have a humble night,

PS.  I wrote this for myself and hope we can all use the reminder from time to time.
