Modesty & Humility

Modesty & Humility:  Letting one’s accomplishments speak for themselves; not regarding oneself as more special than one is. Personified for example by Bill W., co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (Source: VIA Institue)

The Noel Strengths Academy defines it this way:

•  Not braggadocios 

•  Lets one’s accomplishments speak for themselves 

•  Refuses to “one-up” others in relationship 

•  Does not regard oneself as more special than one is 

•  Avoids flaunting or seeking to be the center of attention
