There is no person on earth who does not want to improve their lives. But how do we actually do that? We take on resolutions, make plans and embark on journeys, however they often don’t last very long. Is there a formula for true and sustainable growth?
Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in a new seven-part series, 7 Weeks to a Better You, and discover a 3334-year-old time-tested plan to evaluate and develop your tremendous emotional potential. In this series you will learn the seven facets of your emotional attributes that define the spectrum of your personality, you will gain a clear picture — an “x-ray” — of your inner psyche, and how to harness and enhance the forces that make you tick.
In part 5, you will explore humility — the attribute that defines modesty, sensitivity and gratitude. What is humility and why is it so important? Is your humility coming from strength or weakness? Humility is often confused with passivity and even lack of self-esteem. In truth, healthy humility is actually quite formidable – it is suspending yourself in face of a greater truth; recognizing your qualities and strengths and acknowledging that they are not your own; they were given to you for a higher purpose. Humility is a power that opens you up to new horizons and possibilities. In its ability to yield and be flexible, humility allows you to become indestructible.
Let us explore, evaluate and understand how to actualize the powerful attribute of humility in our emotions, souls and psyches.
