Humble & Kind

I'm probably late to the party, but this song speaks so deep to my heart. While it isn't truly scout related, I think it should be the foundation for any life or organization. 

No matter how far you go, no matter how successful you become... don't let it go to your head. Don't forget to help others. Don't forget why you started this journey and all the help you had along the way. Don't think you did it on your own. No matter how many people say they are "self-made", they aren't... you aren't... maybe we've just become too self-centered to recognize the people around us helping, lifting, cheering, and stepping back while we take the spotlight. 

I guess I just wanted to remind myself, and anyone else that needs it, to remain humble and kind... It's really hard for me to receive a compliment, because I know that while I am good at things, I'm not the only one that can do what I do and in my heart I want others to know I really do want them to succeed... 

You know what they call a leader without followers? Someone just taking a walk. 

Don't forget when you get where you're going to turn around and help the next in line.
