To be humble means to know what your place is... nothing more, nothing less that what you are.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful behound measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves "Who am i to be, brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?". Actually, who are you not to be?. You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. there's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. (This is being humble... my words, not Mandela's)

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it's in everyone, and, as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people premission to do the same: as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Nelson Mandela.
