“The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.” But why does society celebrate people who are entitled, overconfident, and focus perpetually only on themselves? That’s because, in our generation, people are becoming increasingly attention-seeking, competitive, and narcissistic, unaware of the fact that humility and modesty improve the quality of life.
Modesty is not thinking less of yourself; it’s actually thinking of yourself a bit less. Modest people have moderate views on their abilities. They do not undervalue themselves, and neither do they overvalue it. It’s often said that leaders must have a robust and dynamic personality, which can compel people to follow them. To an extent, even we agree with it, as having a captivating personality is essential. But what put off and distances people from their leader is arrogance and intimidation. So if you truly want people to believe in you and follow you, be modest and humble in your outlook.
Modesty is one of the most important virtues you must teach your children. And one of the easiest ways to do it is by giving him or her a name meaning modest. To make your job a tad easier, MomJunction has compiled a list of baby boy and girl names meaning modest. Take a look.
