Accepting the conundrum that arrogance is weakness and humility is strength builds foundations for rich leadership. (Dan Rockwell, leadership writer)
A conundrum is a puzzle, an unusual idea. Rockwell explains this one a bit: “Arrogance creates emptiness. Humility builds connections.” In modern minds, humility is often seen as a weakness. People say, “You have to stand up for yourself; don’t let others walk all over you.” In this perspective, just the opposite is true. Avoid pride; create a healthy self-image.
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment (Romans 12:3).
