The Power of a Humble Life

Life for most of us is all about what we do and how successful we are at what we do.  However, our perception of success has changed dramatically in the western world. Today we not only want to achieve and accomplish great things, we also want to be well-known and admired for it. In this book, I dig into this issue of pride and arrogance and then explore what I consider life’s great paradox: the power of humility.  I hope the insights in this book will enable you to cultivate a humble heart so that you might experience the power of humility.  – Richard E.

Just finished The Power of a Humble Life and learned a great deal. The research is superb and inspired me to focus more on humility.

In the midst of our complex, fast-paced and polarized society, Richard Simmons’ new book, The Power of a Humble Life, reminds us of the deep value of gratitude for our blessings, simplicity in our affairs, and humility before God and our fellow human beings. Simple but profound truths are contained in this book, just as they are revealed to those who seek earnestly for God’s will in their life.
