Why we need more Humility in Society ?
Confucius has defined humility as, “The solid foundation of all virtues” Unfortunately, in the society these days it is often seen as a weakness. Experience proves that the secret of success and fulfillment lies in the ability to express humility.
Studies reveal that humility is associated with healthy adjustment, good leadership and other positive emotions. Humility builds upon other positive traits we already have most traditions, religions or philosophies, believe that certain character traits make up a good person – and a lot of those attributes are enhanced by humility. Humble people put others before themselves, they do it in a mindful manner that doesn’t end up hurting themselves in the long run. Humble people also have more courage to try new things.
People who exude humility also act on their compassion, they are more likely than proud people to help out a friend, they show a more charitable and generous nature towards other people.
We all have had our share of personal struggles. Stuck and indecisive, humble people struggle with what the best option is, they look to their instincts, they have a habit of thinking, about their values when they make choices.
Human nature is such that we want to be happy, and often we try very hard to be happy but people that are the happiest are the ones that don’t think so much about trying to be happy. When you live on the side of modesty, you are genuinely thankful of the opportunities and accolades you received, and not only is that a refreshing outlook to have, but it helps you cope with your miseries with patience.
According to findings, humility creates a sense of “we-ness” in relationships. Being humble means possessing a better capacity to form cooperative alliances – a crucial component in strengthening connections.
Whether it’s a business, a family or an athletic team, humility always make those relationships better!!!

“Global Education - The Need of the Hour”
In order for today’s young people to succeed, they must develop the flexible qualities of character and mind necessary to handling the challenges that globalization poses. To become global citizens, they must learn how to communicate and interact with people around the world. Failing to teach them to embrace it for all it is worth will only condemn them to being left further behind since millions of others throughout the rest of the world will.
In order to give our young people the best opportunity to thrive in the new global world, we need to give them a global education. A global education provides learners with the opportunity and competencies to reflect and share their own point of view and role with a global, interconnected society, as well as to understand and discuss complex relationships of common social, ecological, political and economic issues, so as to develop new ways of thinking. Global learning should start at a young age, with the introduction of learning foreign languages and about other cultures throughout the curriculum. And it should extend to the expectation that all college students should be able to have an international experience during their college careers-either study abroad or an international internship, volunteer or experiential learning opportunity.
Tomorrow’s college graduates are just as likely to compete for jobs in and with people from as far away as Beijing, and Bangalore, as they are from Boston or Boise. But the ability to work across culture is no longer a nice-to-have skill set for elite executive or diplomats; every year it becomes more essential to finding any job at all.
“Having the opportunity to learn about other countries at a young age-and even better, to prepare them to study abroad as part of their education – opens student’s eyes to a new way of thinking about the world, instilling a more informed approach to problem-solving in cross-cultural contexts,” advised Goodman. “Today’s students need as much international exposure as they can get whether they wish to work in business, government, academia or in the not-for-profit sector. Currently, only about 10 percent of students will have studied abroad by the time they graduate. It is our ambitious goal to double the number of students studying abroad by the end of the decade, in order to be better prepared to succeed in the global economy.”
Research on global education shows that it benefits general education by supporting critical thinking, especially in terms of encouraging a consideration of multiple perspectives, a skill identified in much research as supporting success across a range of academic disciplines and careers. The reflective practices and consideration of varying perspectives that well-designed global education programs foster have been demonstrated to support analytical skills in all areas of education.
Global education should begin as early as possible and extend through college or university to include study abroad that includes the proper preparation, intervention on the ground and reintegrating guidance once back on campus. Studying abroad takes global learning up a notch in that it requires students to get out of their comfort zones and experience another culture and education system firsthand. Studying abroad shouldn’t be considered as a tangential or separate part of education, but as an integral part of it.
The landscape of study abroad has changed significantly in recent years. With more flexible and accessible options, the barriers previously posed by disabilities, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and financial need are crumbling. Scholarships and financial aid make programs more affordable. Excellent, substantive programs and inspiring role models exist for every type of student in all academic fields, and it is important that parents are educators encourage them to take advantage of these opportunities. Study abroad and experiential education abroad should be seen as the capstone experience for culmination of a lifetime of global learning.
Clearly, those who are best prepared for the new realities of the job market are the ones most likely to first be hired, and then to succeed. And of course, more than any other kind of work, finding solutions to global problems requires the ability to forge solutions through international dialogue and collaboration. We need global education to develop global workers who will make a positive difference in the world.
