When I started my book tour, people were always asking me, “How are you going to stay humble?”
It’s not easy.
When you start getting recognition, it can go to your head.
But you can’t share your message if you don’t believe in yourself.
It’s a balance.
You need to be confident but also know that it’s not all about you. You are a part of the story, not the whole thing.
For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Brad Lomenick where we explore the tension between confidence and humility.
Brad Lomenick is a renowned speaker, writer, leadership advisor, and founder of Blinc Consulting. He is the author of the groundbreaking book, The Catalyst Leader: Eight Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker, as well as his most recent leadership book, H3 Leadership: Be Humble, Stay Hungry, Always Hustle.
Brad says that the best leaders all have healthy ambition.
