The conscious leader practices humility.

He knows that there is truth in the saying that pride comes before a fall, and so he is careful not to believe his own myth when he succeeds.

He has seen that even the best sportspeople must fight for every point to stay on top and the minute they become complacent they get blown away.

He knows that false humility means playing down compliments while believing you deserve them, whereas authentic humility says, “Thank you,” and gets back to work.

He believes that humility is not denial, but rather the enjoyment of talent and success while being grateful for both.

For the conscious leader, humility is like enjoying the thrill of walking a tightrope while knowing that it’s just one slip and you’re gone.

The conscious leader honours his talents with success through hard work, and humility.
