The Role of Modesty

[By Stever Robbins. Original source here]

Damn, damn, damn, damn. I've been trying to write this into a coherent essay, but it just isn't working. Here are my main points. Let me know what you think.

Here are my points, in no particular order:

Conclusion: adopt an attitude of "I'm great, and so are you." Ask people how they acquired their strengths, and acquire more. Offer to share with them how you acquired yours. Make it socially acceptable to be proud of our strengths, and proud of overcoming out weaknesses. Make it socially unacceptable to wallow in weakness.
