ABSTRACT
The article discusses the psychological and spiritual aspects of humility. It says that humility is a virtuous trait, seen by others and self-identified in moments of honest self-evaluation, that is characterized by other-oriented, prosocial, altruistic motives, modesty, willingness to honestly accept strengths and weaknesses, and not act of feel prideful, arrogant, or narcissistically entitled. Humility, accordingly, can accomplish great effects, it can heal, and can inspire people's lives. Lastly, humility can also help people to reach far beyond the limits they see constraining themselves.
