Humility is...

Humility is not timidity. Being humble does not mean you have to talk less or be quiet.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It is thinking of yourself less. 

Humility is not putting others above yourself. It is valuing others above yourself.

Humility embraces selflessness.

Humility is willingness to serve others, even those in a lower position than you. 

Humility is lowliness, realizing your own shortcomings.

Humility is being confident in who you are, despite your insecurities and flaws.

Humility considers others’ interests above your own.

Humility is the absence of pride. It is avoiding selfish ambition and vain conceit.
