Ever heard the saying "Pain is temporary, Pride is forever"?
Do you know what a group of lions is called?...a Pride
Pride is about respecting yourself and what you do. It is a core value for humans. When you accomplish or achieve something in your life, that overwhelming sense of pride creates a reflex which has you imagining even greater accomplishments.
Without pride people would start second guessing everything they do and thinking that their life is not worth living. If you take pride in your work, it will be reflected in the quality of work that you produce. It will show others of the positive character you are/wish to be. Pride ensures that you don’t cut corners, pride ensures that you think about how this task can be performed greater than it’s ever been performed before, and pride ensures you make your mark!
The only time you need to keep an eye on pride is when it is clouding judgement, or stifling your success. Don't be too proud to seek some help on your journey, that is part of the reason this site has been created.
Have that pride in your life, be sure to let people know that you are representing not just you, but your goals, your family, your community, your city, your country.
“Pride then, seems to be a sort of crown of the virtues, for it makes them greater, and it is not found without them.”
