Being humble is a urgent part of being a top person in the sport. It is very important to have this word ‘humble’ on the forehead of your brain especially during the interviews with the people that make stories on newspapers, wireless radios and television sets.
But before I give you My top tips on how to be humble, first we need to understand what humble means. Do not worry, My staff have already checked the dictionaries. There is one from Oxford with some small typographical errors which I have corrected:
Humble: adjective (humbler, humblest, GOAT)
1 (correction, should begin with “not”) having or showing a low estimate of one’s own importance.
2 of low rank (correction: should be: “of high rank”).
Middle English: from Old French, from Latin humilis ‘low, lowly’, from humus ‘ground’. More recently Swiss GOAT #humble
If a friend breaks his leg you should reply something like, “Do not worry, My leg is OK”. This is important because it makes the emphasising on the positive. Being negative can have bad things happen so I always like to twist myself and turn horrible things into nice ones.
Smile. I like to do this for the approximations of 10 minutes and 22 seconds at a time. The smiling scientists say that when you smile it makes your body feel better, more relaxed and nice as though you are in one of your homes. For example I will create a situation of the hypotheticals, if a top opponent exits a tournament in the second round at Wimbledon (2012) leaving you with the great chances, this is the time you should smile for the time mentioned before. The result? It portrays humbleness because everybody else is talking about the situation of the player leaving, and you are staying positive with the smile looking like the cat that has gotten the large piece of the Creamy Pie.
When you lose, always compliment yourself. This is true. There have been many Pseudo experts in sport in the past times saying that it is for others to praise you, not for you to praise yourself. False. Being truly humble is to lead the way for how others should describe you. This is like helping them in what to say. For the example, everybody knows clay courts (orange ones) have very wide margins and are therefore very easy to dominate on (if you choose to, I don’t). If you do not win an orange clay tournament this is the time to make humbleness and describe how you chose to lose.
Always try to be more humble. I am always looking for ways to improve. For example, one of My good friends Carlos Moya (@CharlyMoya) yesterday on the twitter asked Me: “@PseudoFed have u seen @usainbolt ‘s profile?? #humble” – This was a good tip and shows he was looking out for Me. I checked Mr. Bolt’s profile and My mind made some jealous moments. Perhaps it is time to make the re-writings?
Eat Humble Pie. Following on from the Creamy Pie, forgive Me fans, but this is more of a request than advice from the top. It has been suggested to Me on many numerical occasions that I should eat some Humble Pie. Despite Chef having a vast budget at his disposal for My pleasure, he has yet to find the recipe for this anywhere. If you know the answer, please contact Me. In the meantime I will stick to BlueBerry.
