How do you:
Measure out the right levels of gratitude and honesty to maintain humility, without coming off as an arogant ass?

Be aware:
Acknowledging your act of humility totally negates its power, man.

I’m attempting a month of humility:
Humility simply requires a man to think of his abilities and his actions as no greater, and no lesser, than they really are. Real humility then mandates that a man knows and is completely honest with himself.

This answer was surprising simple for me. I knew when I was behaving like an arrogant ass before, i.e., practice, and it never stopped me. Now the thought of “coming off as an arrogant ass” is like a Medusa-stare to my willpower.

Before: I celebrated and rationalized my wrong behavior.
Now: I’m double-checking my various spiritual levels to make sure they don’t spill over into smarmy.

Everything in life isn’t constantly on the line for a million dollars. It’s constantly on the line for everything in life.
It’s beyond counting, and therefore, it’s beyond worrying about.

Problem solved!
