Climbing to the top is an arduous task. It is also extremely lonely.

I mean the trekking to the top. And the stay.

And if you’re not humble, you’ll tumble to your death.

That’s my excuse. The reason I’m not at the top.

I’m not humble enough.

But humility is something I don’t completely understand.

It’s this perfect balance between an uncompromising self-confidence and an acceptance that your success is not about you. And that quite possibly, you’ve succeeded in spite of yourself.

Because we all know that success is made up of many factors: hard work, persistence, resilience, and lots and lots and lots of luck.

Humility is the understanding that though things went one way, they could have very easily gone the other way.

But I’m still not quite sure about how to achieve it.

If you have any ideas, let me know.

Because like you, I’m trekking to the top. And I need as much help as I can get.
