The power to be humble

It is always the secure who are humble.
- G.K. Chesterton, essayist and novelist (1874-1936)

Those who are secure can afford to be humble. Others, by comparison, are desperately struggling to earn a place in the world.

Healthy and comfortably well off politicians make decisions about health care for children, the elderly and disabled adults.

Financially secure industry leaders make decisions about the prices to be charged for items to be purchased by those who have to scrimp on their food to buy other needed items.

To be secure is to have power. To be humble about it is to be confident in one's ability to hold on to that power.

Yet we each have within us the ability to be secure within ourselves, if we learn how to reach that stage. The power of self confidence is reachable if we are taught how to find it. Thus we have the potential to be humble, no matter what our financial or social position.
