Humility Worksheet

Humility can be a struggle to make into a habit. As Franklin wrote in his Autobiography, it is often tempting to tell others they are wrong, or to share your ideas as though they are facts. It is difficult not to object publicly if someone else gets credit for something you did. This is because humility requires caring more about what is right than about who is right.

Directions: Identify a person (someone you know personally) who reflects humility. How does this influence the people around him or her? What, for you, is most challenging about living humbly? How might you overcome those challenges?

“A great man is always willing to be little.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
