Several years ago I wrote the below article under the title of Live Beyond Limitations. I feel led to share that article with you at this time. In the Live Beyond Limitations article, I divided the article into 4 Parts. In this article, I will present the article in 2 Parts. The information that I present in this article served to empower my life, as I began to understand that humility had nothing to do with humiliation.
If I may make a suggestion, please take your time as you read through each of the 2 parts. By taking the time to reflect, digest and absorb the distinctions, I believe that your life will take on new meaning, you will be empowered and you will begin to understand that humility has nothing to do with humiliation.

Empowering Your Life — The Difference between Humility and Humiliation Part 1
Welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. I have been thinking about a very powerful principle. I have found that this principle — when applied — helps me to step out of my limitations into the abundance of possibilities. Discouragement is disbanded as an illusion of lack. The conceivable becomes attainable while apprehension is traded for hope.
Progress rather than perfection becomes a way of life. The bondage of needing to be perfect is replaced with the pursuit of excellence.
The voice of inadequacy is replaced with the voice of enough. I no longer have to be right to feel secure. I am free to say, “I don’t know”. I am made strong when I am weak. I am free to take risks because I realize that I can not fail. I am able to laugh at myself because I know that I am learning. I am able to let go of outcomes because I know that I will get what I need. I can trust the process, a loving God and myself because I do not have to know the big picture.
The principle that I am referring to is humility. Through my process, I have learned a very valuable lesson. Humility is not humiliation.
Humility promotes and empowers the individual through meekness. Humility sets the individual free to accept themselves — because the individual knows that they do not have to prove their worth or value. Humility regales the individual with hope because the individual knows that possibilities exist. Humility encourages learning, because the individual realizes that they do not have to already know everything. Humility encourages sets the stage for learning curves.
Humility breeds brings security, because the individual knows that they can trust the process, a loving God and themselves. Humility encourages the individual to let go of that which is out of their control. Humility motivates the individual to ask for help because the individual realizes that they do not have to lean on their own understanding or resources. Humility empowers hope — through trust — because the individual knows that more will be revealed.
Humility seeks to set the individual free, because the individual knows that they can practice easy does it. Humility motivates the individual to take risks because there is no threat of reprisal. Humility encourages the individual to succeed, while at the same time cheer leading their efforts. Humility celebrates the individual as a work in progress. Humility teaches the individual to stay in the moment, to enjoy the process, to do the foot work and to let go of the outcomes.
Humility reinforces self-esteem, self-respect and self-worth. Humility does not seek justification. Humility does not disparage, minimize or marginalize. Humility does not condescend. Humility is free of contempt. Humility is patient and kind. Humility champions and supports the individual. Humility readies the individual for service. Humility empowers with wisdom. Humility gently reveals power through change.
