As one of my favourite entrepreneurs and founder of Zappos, Tony Hsieh wrote in his book Delivering Happiness:
Don’t be cocky. Don’t be flashy. There is always someone better than you.
Basically what he is saying is practice humility.
The problem with success is that it seduces great men and women to think that they are invisible.
The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.
Emotional intelligence is not something that everyone is blessed with, and but it is something everyone can work on.
The art of quiet confidence is recognised when a man or woman who walks into the room and commands everyone’s attention, but didn’t have to raise his or her voice one bit.
They are confident, but they would never say it.
They don’t have to show or display to the world what they have are achieving or have achieved.
Quiet confident people are comfortable in their own skin.
The have more than they show, and speak less than they know.
There is so much power in humility, how I wish people knew.
