You'll often encounter discrimination, envy, hate jealousy, and overt bullying during your daily interactions in the society.

I like this insightful Japanese proverb "Nou aru taka wa tsume wo kakusu- meaning a talented Hawk hides her/his talons. In my view, either downplaying or concealing your strengths, not showing off your talents in boastful manner, and being modest in life are always respected - not only in Japan but also anywhere in the world. I have also realized that those who are truly knowledgeable seldom show off, while the empty vessel always makes too much noise. Modesty is surely the great virtue that differentiates you as the "cut above the rest" in the society.
You can always differentiate cheap restaurants from high-class restaurants by looking at the menus that they offer. Cheap and low class restaurants always talk about "You", like "All You Can Eat", "Your Choice" etc. High class and expensive restaurants, on the other hand, always offer their own terms, such as "Chef's Choice", "Gourmet Food" etc. When you are the best and cut above the rest, you don't need to lure with inciting and seductive language to attract. Your quality par excellence and high standards will do that job very well. Strive to be extraordinary, and the world will follow you.
Admitting a mistake, and taking responsibility for your actions requires guts, courage and tremendous humility. Many people misconstrue the step of accountabiliy as a weakness. ou mustn't think that way, because it's not your weakness at all. On the contrary, it shows your open minded character, and an openness of your heart. Saying "Sorry" needs higher level of intellectual capacity, above and beyond ordinary. Only a strong and well-balanced individual with character and clarity of mind can do it effortlessly. Be proud while taking responsibility for your actions. Be proud, because that's the only part of your character that will differentiate you and uplift you from the crowd. It will make you what you truly are - the "cut above the rest" and extraordinary.
