Self-development has many benefits but it’s interesting to notice that it’s focused on the self. That’s an insight author Gavin Seah explores in his book, True Humility: Finding Peace and Balance in Today’s Modern Society. Could it be that our growth is stunted when it’s not shared with others? Are we missing out on true happiness by keeping our growth to ourselves and not using it to impact others? These are some of the questions Gavin tackles as he encourages readers to see how we can take what we’re learning to not only better ourselves, but to better mankind.
In this conversation we discuss:
- The definition of true humility;
- How we can work with our blind spots;
- If seeking inner peace is selfish;
- False humility and pride;
- How we can start practicing true humility every day.
