The beauty of being humble: 25 traits of down-to-earth people

By | Jelena Dincic |

Humility is often overlooked, but I think it’s a characteristic that says so much about a person.

Humble people aren’t boastful or arrogant. They may excel at something but they don’t feel the need to show off. They’re genuine, down-to-earth, and approachable.

What’s more, they always treat others with respect, which is one of the reasons people love to be around them.

Let’s take a look at the 25 characteristics that make down-to-earth people so great:

1) Genuine

It’s easy for successful people to put up a false front or pretend to be someone they’re not.

That’s why there’s something beautiful about the humility of down-to-earth people. It doesn’t matter that they’re accomplished business people, scientists, politicians, authors, photographers, or actors, they’re genuine in their interactions with others.

They don’t act like they’re better or more important than everyone else – they’re just regular people.

2) Laid-back

Another trait of down-to-earth people is that they like to go with the flow and they don’t sweat the small stuff.

They can enjoy the simple things in life and appreciate life’s little moments.

And the best part?

They’re easy-going and not very demanding.

3) Accepting

The wonderful thing about humble, down-to-earth people is how accepting they are of other people.

No matter how different someone’s background, culture, politics, religion, or personal views are, they’ll be seen and treated as an equal.

4) Relatable

How is it that some movie stars just seem like regular people? No matter how rich and famous they are, they’re somehow relatable.

Well, the reason they’re like that is that they haven’t let fame get to them. They’re regular people with regular people problems which is why you can relate to them.

5) Respectful

I really hate it when people are obnoxious and disrespectful, don’t you?

I’ve met plenty of people who think that because they’ve attained a certain “position” it gives them the right to treat other people like cr*p.

They think that they deserve to be respected but it doesn’t occur to them that respect needs to be earned and that it’s a two-way street.

But that’s why humble people are so wonderful – no matter who they are or what they’ve achieved, they’re respectful of other people.

6) Unpretentious

And that brings me to my next point: they’re unpretentious.

Down-to-earth people know that in the great scheme of things (in this vast universe) we’re all just tiny insignificant beings.

Think about it, we’re all in the same boat, so why pretend otherwise? Why put on airs?

Life’s too short for such nonsense. Know what I mean?

7) Empathetic

Down-to-earth people have a deep understanding of other people’s struggles and they can relate to them on a personal level.
