Successful actresses live and experience life in a way few of us can truly grasp.

Sometimes with their vast array of experiences come wisdom.

Our beautiful star rose to prominence for her supporting role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga (2008–12). She received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the comedy-drama Up in the Air (2009). She achieved further recognition for starring as Beca Mitchell in the musical comedy film series Pitch Perfect (2012–2017).

Regarding humility, she was once quoted as expressing, “An actor should always let humility outweigh ambition.”

It appears a wide array of experiences at times does produce wisdom.

How about you? What is your view of humility?

If asked, virtually everyone would say that humility is a positive, desirable and even admirable trait………for others.

We love it in others but often struggle to demonstrate it ourselves.

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.”… Rick Warren

It is worth the effort.

Just ask the leaders in analyzing what develops a healthy mind at Psychology Today. In a June 2012 article they share, “Recent studies show that humility is connected with many forms of prosocial behavior. Humility has been linked with better academic performance, job performance, and excellence in leadership. Humble people have better social relationships, avoid deception in their social interactions, and they tend to be forgiving, grateful, and cooperative.”

Humility was linked to a better performance on film. It was historical in proportions.

The extraordinary actor Colin Firth plays the future King George VI who, to cope with a stammer, sees Lionel Logue, an Australian speech and language therapist played by Geoffrey Rush.

The men become friends as they work together, and after his brother abdicates the throne, the new king relies on Logue to help him make his first wartime radio broadcast on Britain’s declaration of war on Germany in 1939.

The speech, born of extensive stress, struggle and ultimately humility moved a nation.

The King’s Speech won seven British Academy Film Awards, including Best Film, Best Actor (Firth), Best Supporting Actor (Rush), and Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter). The film also won four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director (Hooper), Best Actor (Firth), and Best Original Screenplay (Seidler).

It is very impressive what humility demonstrated can accomplish.

To help us absorb this very personal subject better, we now turn our attention to a visiting female writer.

The insightful Marteka N. Swaby smiles and introduces herself. “I bring the simple principles of coaching, using forward focused conversations to help people with the most complex issues at home, work and in business to achieve lasting results.

Let’s listen in while she shares.

Humility A True Greatness

Humility starts from a position of dignity, strength and a healthy sense of your own worth and abilities. A greatness that is rarely demonstrated, and a topic that can be redefined as a great pursuit to improve your relationships, reduce stress & increase happiness both at home and in the workplace.

The Power of Humility takes you from being impoverished emotionally and spiritually, to invisible wealth; serenity and peace. You must have humility in order to grow, change, heal and help others.

Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right.

Pride is the opposite of humility and rages a battle deep within every heart. It is the engine of mediocrity, because the proud think they have “arrived” and have nothing left to learn, certainly not from you or me anyway.

When we bring up things in a conversation to make us look good in the eyes of others, it is a manifestation of pride. One recurring issue is talking too much and name-dropping is a hidden form of pride being released.

In order to choose peace over conflict, a person has to be grounded in an accurate sense of self, with that comes a confidence and strong spiritual power, because you are not easily swayed by other’s invitation to fight.

To get peace in your daily life, achieve levels of awareness, consciousness and relationship skills, that help you to get free of many of your conflicts. We must learn how to weaken the perils of pride and cultivate the promise of humility.

Why Humility Is Better Than Tolerance?

Humility will CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE AND ATTITUDE to help you come together with others in understanding. It reminds me of the power we attain when we let go and surrender. Humility doesn’t seek to be known or celebrated. It seeks to serve, make others better, is selfless and gives glory to God.

I have searched for what it means to be a humble person, as I always interpreted it as being a doormat. The ancient world admired honor, not humility, but Jesus of Nazareth caused a Humility Revolution. We can learn many things from those living in extreme poverty and it’s simple. Humility inspires and lifts those around us, generating learning and growth, and provides a firm basis for self-esteem.

If like me you have fallen from the ego tree and hit every branch of humility on the way down. You will know that respect and humility gets you the best loyalty. Humility isn’t a position of weakness. Try making people feel important daily rather than yourself and see the strength it takes. Humility has nothing to do with the insecure & inadequate.

The root of everything good is patience, humility, honesty and respect, often translated into company core values through mission statements, business objectives and recruiting new employees. Money may make people rich and knowledge could make people wise but Humility makes great people, as well as great employees, great wives, husband, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and friends.

5 Keys to Cultivate Humility In Life, Love, and Leadership

1) Each Day End Identify Evidence of Grace. The humble are frequently more persuasive and inspiring than the arrogant. We are more attracted to people who are humble than to those who are not. Keep a diary of grace to keep your ego in check.

2) Show Respect To Those You Don’t Agree With. A humble person is marked by a willingness to hold power in service of others. Humility means treating those who hold contrary beliefs with respect and friendship.

3) Invite and Pursue Correction. Respond with ability doing this in humility. At times you will also be required to just forget about it, not responding at all. Leaving your ego aside useful if your journey is guiding you to harmony.

4) Act Humbly. Leave A Legacy of Greatness. Respond humbly to trials by encouraging others to be great. Give credit where it is due, openly or publicly where possible.

5) Lead By Example. Provide those you influence with the tools of humility or show them the power of humility through your actions. Humility breeds inspiration and respect.
