One of the prominent virtues of greatness is humility.
Humility is the ability for one to remain modest regardless of his aptitude and potential. Here is an example illustrating what this means:
If you’re an amazing dart player (like myself), you tend to win the majority of the time. However, simply because you possess the ability to win does not necessarily make you “great”. In my opinion a “great” dart player does not always out perform his competition, but instead occasionally lets those with less ability than himself come out on top.
This is the same concept behind letting children win at board games. While winning may not be important to an adult, children find it very encouraging. Letting others win can be a great way to boost their self confidence.
So my advice to all those who possess greatness is this; show a little “Grace” and let others shine from time to time.
