We should stay grounded and let others lift us up
It is hard to prevent ourselves from overestimating our abilities and accomplishments. We must be careful not to get too ahead of ourselves; it’s easy to become prideful in the face of recognition and praise.
There is something more authentic about how we flourish when commendations come from others, especially people we respect the most.
Even if we feel proud about something we have achieved, we must not let this turn into arrogance or conceit. Acknowledging our successes can give us confidence and help us strive for further excellence; however, we should always remain humble in our pursuit of excellence.
