Humility, Gratitude, and Swagger – How They All Fit Together
„How does humility fit in with swagger?” It’s a question that caught my attention when I was browsing the Net. It’s actually the title of an article by Jim Murphy. From what I’ve read on his site Inner Excellence, he’s a sportsman who’s now authored personal development books and committed himself to inspiring people to be the best they can be. I usually come across the word “swagger” when the subject is a popular person, usually a celebrity or someone who’s idolized. They usually have that certain charm that makes them irresistible. Admit it or not, many of us often wonder how we can have that. In his article, Murphy said, “Don’t confuse swagger with pride. Swagger is the confidence that you can connect with the powerful energy of passion, purpose, and poise. Pride is, in our discussion, the false bravado that comes when the ego says, ‘look at me.’” And he has a point there. The article is just a brief one, but it has some statements that can create a certain spark in your soul and spirit. Read the whole piece through this link – How does humility fit in with swagger?
