Sometimes, old truths become important again. We call something new, but it’s been there all along, we just didn’t pay attention.
In today’s world of robots and artificial intelligence, people worry that they can’t compete with machines in thinking power, speed, or analyzing data. To stay important, we need to focus on things that machines can’t do. So, what are these things that only humans can do?
One important thing that robots can’t copy well is humility. Humility is a special quality that helps us work well with others. If we aren’t humble, we might not listen to others. We might only care about ourselves. But with humility, we can care about others and their ideas.
Humility means understanding our limits, being open to learning from others, and always trying to get better.
“Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another, always considering others better than yourselves.” – Phil 2:3
This old advice is important if you want to be irreplaceable. It means thinking everyone you meet is smart and helping them share their own value. Being humble isn’t being weak. It’s a strong quality that helps us grow, work with others, and succeed in the long run.
If you think about it, everyone is different and valuable in their own way. To get the best from people, start with being humble.
