Humility, from Jay Humbert

January 28, 2009 |

 One of the strongest traits that Vic speaks of often is humility. I was reading yesterday on the Battle of Waterloo. Napoleon smugly commented that morning over breakfast "I tell you that Wellington is a bad General, the English are bad soldiers; we will settle this matter by lunchtime." And we know what happened next. It's amazing how I get whacked by subtle arrogant moves in my life/markets and am knocked to my knees. GE is currently that example of arrogance as well as friendship, marriage, fatherhood, and DailySpeculations. I have lately been in a spiraling downward depression for about two years in which nothing seemed to go right no matter what the effort was. That has humbled me to the point to where great things are starting to happen due to being brought to my knees in pain and accepting my arrogance and owning it.
