A Shortage of Humility


There is a shortage of humility today, especially on social media. I see it every day. Here’s what I’ve learned...

Just because someone posts all their accomplishments and life highlights on social media doesn't necessarily mean they are doing big things. People exaggerate all the time. They also hide behind masks to create a persona that doesn’t truly reflect who they are. 

But just because someone doesn't post all their accomplishments on social media DOES NOT mean they aren't doing big things. In fact, it usually means that they are. They just don’t feel the need to tell or show anyone yet. And that’s perfectly OK. It’s admirable, in my opinion. 

This is the "overnight success" that people often talk about. Nobody sees all the work that goes into mastering their craft. These people RARELY go on social media to announce every single accomplishment of theirs. They understand that they have a long way to go. They don’t feel obligated to share everything with the world because they’re motivated by growth, not attention. 

There’s no such thing as the “overnight success.” It’s called “doing the work when no one is watching.” Get used to doing that. 


The point is not to concern yourself with what everyone else is doing. Focus on your own thing. Let your actions speak for yourself. Be humble and continue to improve and develop yourself.
