Perhaps, but the worst golfer at the driving range doesn't necessarily aim for the pin. I would know, 'cause that's me!

I agree. Humility is not easy. it's harder to know your self than it is to know others. When your wrong, it's the willingness to accept your wrong. we all make mistakes, but as long as you learn from mastakes, we will move forward.

It is interesting that the Guiding Principles so often contain the principle in the subtext, yet many of the words in the principles could use more definition. This post goes a long way in explaining what humility is.

Beyond self-awareness, though, is a component where the value of others is considered. Paul writes in Philippians 2:3-4, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others." As stated above, this is not the "aw, schucks" false modesty, but truly moving beyond even self-awareness to the principles of respect and customer focus.
