“A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself.
The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.”
I’ve always liked people who are modest and humble, despite their genius or awesomeness- reason why Rajnikanth is practically worshipped in Tamil Nadu. No matter how successful one gets, being successful somehow seems easier than being successful and being humble. With fame and power, every human mind is bound to be power drunk. The strongest of people however are the ones who know where they came from and who helped him reach where he is today.
The quote however not just about modesty. It is good to have confidence and faith in oneself. There are people who have everything that a man should have to be great, except talent. But believing in your talent is the first step to achieve. However, self satisfied with something that is not there and not working towards constant improvising will get no good to anyone! Never over or under estimate yourself. Have faith and make progress towards the bigger goal of being a better one.
