      Don’t be afraid to defer to others’ judgment. It’s easy to acknowledge that you make mistakes and that you‘re not always right. Somewhat more difficult however, is the ability to acknowledge that in many cases other people—even people who disagree with you—may be right.

      Help others. A big part of being humble is respecting others, and part of respecting others is helping them. Treat other people as equals and help them because it is the right thing to do. It’s been said that when you can help others who cannot possibly help you in return, you have learned humility.  

      Appreciate the talents and qualities of others. Challenge yourself to look at others and appreciate the things they can do and, more generally, to appreciate people for who they are. Understand that everybody is different and relish the chance you have to experience different people. You will still have your personal tastes, your likes and dislikes, but train yourself to separate your opinions from your fears and you will appreciate others more—you will be humbler.

      Recognize your own faults. We judge others because it’s a lot easier than looking at our own faults. Unfortunately, it’s also completely unproductive and, in many cases, harmful. Judging others causes strife in relationships, and it prevents new relationships from forming. Perhaps even worse, it prevents us from trying to improve ourselves. We make judgments about others all the time, and we often don’t even realize it. As a practical exercise, try to catch yourself in the act of judging another person or group of people, and whenever you do, judge yourself instead and consider how you could improve yourself.  

      When we find a humble person eager to share what he or she has, we are surprised and then pleased.

      A humble person says that one will do the best one can to learn.

      A humble person will do what he can to serve others.

      A humble person will search for wisdom.

      A humble person will be grateful for all he receives.

      A humble person will recognize that he knows little but can learn much more.

      A humble person will not be aggressive to others.

      A humble person will take care of his family and give them support in all that they do.

      A humble person will love God and recognize that God will lead him to truth and knowledge.
