What Humbles Us Can Teach Us

What Humbles Us Can Teach Us

By: Shunte Gamble | November 11, 2021


What humbles us carries the potential to teach us. As I reflect on the things I am grateful for, I cannot fail to include the lessons that humbled me. It is easy for us to set relationship goals, career goals, even self-care goals, but what about practicing humility as a goal?

I love the following quote. “For many of us, humility is one of the hardest traits to develop; because it has to start from a recognition that you are not always right and that you do not have all the answers. It also requires an acceptance of yourself which many of us find challenging.”

Whew! I talk a lot about being 100% transparent with ourselves on my podcast, Let’s Talk Life XL, with my guests. The verdict is always the same. We all concur this is a necessary component of self-discovery, self-acceptance, interpersonal growth, and overall change.

It took many failures to realize there usually are multiple ways to accomplish a goal. When I trust the leading for my journey, I can have a larger perspective of life. I find the time, in-between, is much more satisfying. There are more intangible rewards like joy, self-love, self- grace, and peace. I can receive new opportunities, clarity, and support because I am not clutching my way so tightly.

An open hand is better than a closed fist. Think about it. How can you receive if you’re not in the act of receiving?

Ways to Practice Humility

1. Practice gratitude.

 When you find yourself feeling bummed or frustrated, try writing a list of ten people or things you’re grateful for having in your life. Then invite the positive emotions/feelings each brings. Write those feelings or thoughts down along with why you’re grateful for them.  

2. Avoid comparison.

Comparison is the number one thief of joy, peace, contentment, love, and the list goes on. Focus on your gratitude list. If you feel you’re lacking in a particular area of your life, set specific goals to heal or grow in that area. For instance, if you feel like everyone around you is getting married or in healthy relationships, make a goal to enjoy your time as a single, meet new people, or partake in things you love to do. If you feel overlooked or unseen, make a goal to practice boldness or to practice self-encouragement (I like affirmations). Remember, you are one-of-a-kind. Your journey is designed specifically for you, the people you will impact, and the experiences you need. 

3. Practice vulnerability with yourself and others. 

The only way to is through. If we want to make progress and see external change, we have to start inward. When we are honest about where we are emotionally, mentally, or physically, we can take the steps toward personal development. This-takes-time. This-may-hurt. Practicing vulnerability may also require outsourced support, such as counseling. Either way, this is a sure path to the best version of you.

4. Lean into the power of constructive feedback.

 I like to describe constructive feedback as feedback that builds you up (like the construction of a building) and does not tear you down (like the demolishing of a building). Constructive feedback carries the power to better us in specific areas of our lives. When we are open to suggestions for improvement, we open ourselves to the opportunity to widen our perspective and apply new strategies to experience better or different outcomes. Remember, feedback should empower you to be your best self. 

5. Know that being humble doesn’t make you weak.

A huge misconception is that minimizing ourselves is the way to express humbleness or humility. So not true. The fact is, the opposite is true. When we practice humility, we glow. If you’ve ever turned on a light in a dark room, then you know the power of light. When we glow, we shine. When we shine, we light up rooms we walk in. When we surround ourselves with others who are also glowing, we become a larger beacon of light.  In essence, we emit positive energy that can empower and inspire those we meet along our journey.  

P.S. Be the light this world needs. Shine!
With Love,
Sg

Meet Precious Jones

Meet Precious Jones

By: Mixed Talk Media | November 5, 2021

Meet Precious Jones, owner of 11:11 Vibes By Precious. While perusing social media, I came across a post for what I thought was dessert! Yes, I thought I saw delicious jarred desserts. After a second glance, I realized the dessert was, in reality, a candle. That blew me away! Pun intended. Intrigued, I clicked onto her profile to see all the beautiful creations she had to offer. 

Tell us alittle about yourself.

I’m 31 years old and a mother of four children. I’m from Dallas, Texas. I am a serial entrepreneur. I began my business in 2012, but I didn’t start taking it seriously until 2020.

Who/What was the motivation behind starting your company?

As a kid, I always loved the smell of candles; my mom kept them around the house. My motivation behind starting candle-making was because of the aroma of a burning candle, the fire from the flames relaxing me, to the candles looking so realistic. Being able to create them the way I choose brings out my inner child and my creativity.

Do you make a variety of aromas?

I specialize in sweet scents, but I have aromatherapy scents as well.

What is the best part about working with your customers?

Connecting with candle lovers and leaving them with a product they just love and is uniquely different.

Please leave a short message of inspiration for entrepreneurs reading today.

No matter what business you wanna start, start that business without a business plan! The same God that gave you the vision will give you the clients. Just Start!

Love it! Sometimes we think we have to have it all figured out. Taking the next step is equal parts faith and choice. From there, we can build a plan that will support our future growth. I second that! Start today and see where tomorrow takes you.
