On Humility

We will accompany your vision

Supporting your vision!

I think that the fundamental concerns, strategy, values and principle of Envision can be summed up in one word: Humility. I feel that humility is the most important virtue for successful company and good lives.

Once, while struggling to understand what true humility means, I looked up “humility” in a dictionary. The dictionary defined “humility” as ‘the attitude of humbling one's self and being meek to others'.

However, as I tried to humble myself and become meek to achieve humility, I felt I was becoming more and more a two-faced hypocrite. Then one day, I came across the following definition of humility in a book titled 'The Purpose Driven Life', which cleared my head of turmoil:

“ Humility is not thinking less of yourself;
It is to think less of themselves.
It is to think the others more.
Humble people are so focused on serving others
than think themselves. ”

This made me realise that it is the focus - rather than the relative positions - of a relationship that defines humility.

Generally, people and companies seek to use the limited resources at their disposal to satisfy their needs and desires as fully as possible. They sometimes go so far as to take resources from others by force to overcome the limitations of their own resources. They also build walls in their relationship to protect their resources from others.

However, those who are humble, i.e. those who think more of others than of themselves and are focused on serving others, are not walled out; on the contrary, people build bridges to reach them better. They do so because they wish to be served and supported with resources, by those who are humble. Thus it is said that pride builds walls between people, while humility builds bridges; that humility is the oil that smoothes and soothes relationships.

With humility, Envision will provide the value of Supporting Your Vision to our members, customers, partners and society. We will do so because this is the purpose of Envisions existence.

Envision will become great.
We will become great by making our members great.

Envision will succeed.
We will succeed by making our customers and partners successful.

Envision will have the dream and vision of betterment.
We will have the dream and vision of betterment by helping society have the dream and vision of betterment.
