Humility eliminates many of life's problems. A humble person will not be bothered by life's circumstances and will not envy what anyone else has. He will not become angry nor quarrel with others.
It is very pleasant to be in the presence of a humble person, therefore people will invariably like him. All of his interactions with other people will be serene and tranquil. Fortunate is the person who has acquired this attribute.
Today, imagine that a miracle has occurred and you suddenly have total humility. In what way does this enable you to free yourself from any anxiety you frequently experience?
(see Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto - Path of the Just, ch.22)
