Article supports position that he who humbles himself will be exalted, but he who exalts himself will be humbled.

Exactly correct Garth.

Being humble is a subjective measure, depending on the industry you're in. Some industries prefer that you are bold (about your stuff), while others require the reserved man or woman. We all know about the arrogant entrepreneurs like Donald and Leona, who both clearly recognized peak successes. Meanwhile, only in the past decade have we all (more or less) gained access to resources and information/shared in books, videos, etc, teaching us people skills and practices. Learning them is one thing. Adopting them and using them unconsciously is another. Thank you for the affirmation today, how humble "wins."

Garth Sanginiti's insight:

I am a firm believer that as we chart the course of our life we should "begin with the end in mind".  And as my 91 year old Grandfather always says, "time waits for nobody".  Put another way, we should appreciate every day we are blessed with because life is but a vapor.

Garth Sanginiti's insight:

Great article that reinforces without a culture of trust in an organization, success is impossible. Particularly like the statement, "It is the relationships we forge—and the trust we create—that matters most to our success at the end of the day."

Daniel Watson's curator insight, June 21, 2013 4:30 AM


To succeed in business, the quality of relationships across your organization—from leaders to employees, employees to leaders, employees to employees, and employees to customers must be at the highest level.


The quality of relationships of any kind, are very much aligned to the level of trust that is established between the all players in the relevant business, and those with whom the business interacts.


This excellent article, strongly suggests that if trust is lacking in any area of your business you need to rectify that situation immediately, and it outlines five questions you need to ask to determine the level of trust which exists within your business.
