Don’t be complacent. Don’t be flashy. There is always someone better than you!
There is a story about who is the wisest?
Socrates, the famous Greek philosopher wanted to know who was the most intelligent of Athens. Therefore, he asked the prophet of the Temple of Apollo, Delphi: “who is the wisest?”
Delphi replied, “It is you”.
“Impossible,” Socrates said, “because i realize i know not so much”
“That is why you are the wisest man,” Delphi replied with a smile.
No one can know all the knowledge in the world. The most knowledgeable person is someone who knows yourself, knows me, knows his strengths and weaknesses and never shows off what he knows.
Complacency is one of the reasons affecting personal development. Complacency will make you more and more subjective, delusional about your own abilities, from which you will be left behind, unable to promote.
So in the life don’t be complacent, don’t be flashy. There is always someone better than you!
