Humility is a key to success, in recovery or anything else.
Malcolm Gladwell said it well: “We are better people when we are humble.”
What is humility? Jordan Peterson defines humility as the “recognition of personal insufficiency and the willingness to learn.”
I ask you three questions:
- Are you still willing to learn?
- Do you recognize weak spots in your recovery?
- Do you see yourself as being on a journey, or have you already arrived?
Recovery Step: “Clothe yourselves with humility” (Colossians 3:12).
