Nobody is so important No matter what they think If you´re humble enough The world is at your feet Got my feet right here on the ground Knowing that growing up I am the same Sharing my greatest victories when I win I believe that glory is in this world Nobody is so powerful No matter what they think No one is less precious Keep your fame to yourself Got my feet right here on the ground Knowing that when I´m winning I´m the same You had better learn how to lose And you´ll be on the right track in your life No one is better than anyone In the end everybody is all the same.
“Great since we are small”
Humility is a value which enhances simplicity and, therefore, equality. It gives us a terrestrial concept of ourselves and an egalitarian attitude to others. We are all born human and, therefore, no one is better than anyone else. And, even though our features, actions, aims, achievements are different from one another, our species is the same from cradle to grave. Humility also means fair acknowledgement of otherness. Honestly appreciating the skills and success of the next man makes us more humane rather than undermines us. We all have our skills and derive moments of satisfaction, that´s why envy is absolutely out of the question. What is really called for is motivation for trying to improve and getting influence from people more in the know so we can put two and two together and grow up.
On the other hand, at times we will be praised, which can be a source of joy and pleasure. But we mustn´t base our happiness on that, since our main aim should be to feel proud of our achievements, looking at our actions for what they´re worth, regardless of praise. When it comes to winning and losing, humility really comes in handy. It is a value which helps us learn from defeat, congratulating our opponent on their triumph and it makes us value our own victory in the right measure, bearing in mind that no matter what, we are all still the same: human beings.
