HUMILITY AND EXPERIENCE

Listen to this true story:

"My father began teaching business classes at the local prison through a community college. On his first night of class, he started a chapter on banking. During the course of his lecture, the subject of ATMs came up, and he mentioned that, on average, most machines contain only about $1,500 at a given time.

"Just then a man in the back raised his hand. ’I’m not trying to be disrespectful,’ he told my father, ’but the machine I robbed had about $5,000 in it.’" (Reader’s Digest)

Sometimes we learn best by experience. And that’s how it is with humility. Sometimes we have to humbled the hard way, by experience; this reduces our tendency to overestimate our importance.
