|Mrs. Lindner and Son|
Being modest means you are rightfully proud of what you can do; but are also ready to learn more, to get better and to never stop learning. If you are working on a Taekwondo skill or poomse (patterned movement) move, we know those take hundreds if not thousands of repetitions to be part of our muscle memory – even longer to be proficient at them. Modesty allows us to learn nuances from our instructor to improve as we go, and avoid creating bad habits in learning.
Modesty helps in everyday life. It is valuable to know what you can and cannot do, and how you can help in a situation at work. It is just as valuable to know when to ask for help instead of diving into something that isn't familiar to you, out of arrogance.
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, modesty helps us identify each in ourselves to strengthen both!
