1. You are teachable.
2. You are influenceable.
3. You can be corrected without defending yourself.
4. You rejoice when others are celebrated.
5. No job is too small for you.
6. You don’t have to be right.
7. You naturally seek the advice of others.
8. You actually do pray.
9. You freely admit your flaws, mistakes, and failures.
10. You live to help others succeed.
11. You aren’t entitled.
12. You are patient.
13. You don’t promote yourself.
14. You let other people have a better story than yours.
15. You honor other people when they are talking.
