Acknowledge the truth about yourself.

“A man who does not firmly acknowledge the truth about himself cannot be truly magnanimous, for the magnanimous man is clear-eyed and even-keeled, neither overestimating nor underestimating his own abilities, but perfecting them so that he may reach the heights of virtue and achieve the appropriate honors.” ~ Robert Elliot
