Why is humbleness encouraged in us since childhood when it's the not humble people who succeed in life?

Its not encouraged in everyone. Its possible that in your case you were taught to be humble by someone that was humbled early on and felt the struggle to be a big shot wasnt worth it. These are the same people that insist the steady path is best.
>>
>>6768027
the children of chads are encouraged to be chads. the children of cucks are encouraged to be cucks. such is the way of the world.

I got lucky in that I took the humility and morality shit very seriously, which led to me being ruthlessly bullied until I learned that always lying, bullying others, taking advantage of them and encouraging them to behave in ways that benefit me, not them, is what works.

you should stop being a doormat and become an asshole. feels a lot better.

Im against lying because it makes people not trust you even when you tell them the truth.

It's one of those paradoxical twists of fate that leads people to be much less humble when they look up and think they're just another insignificant spec than the eras when they looked up and thought they were at the center of everything.

OP said it himself. Why are children actively taught a character trait that sets them up for life as a nobody? Why are school classes and discipline systems centred around enforcing that trait?
>>
>>6768288
Because that trait is actually more desirable when being part of a functioning society.

Exactly. A cog. A pleb.

no it doesn't, not if you can lie worth a shit

the key to lying is to never tell the truth at all. always tell a narrative, and always keep it consistent - never trip up. that way nobody has a baseline for what truth coming from you sounds like and you never get caught lying either. I will lie to people about the most mundane and irrelevant of things, because the way I talk is by constructing a world and then describing it.

If I can humbly offer my thoughts. Humble people can succeed. The main difference between pride and humility is what you think constitutes success. If you're basically happy with yourself as you are, where you are, then you're most likely better off than someone who thinks they ought to have, be and do a lot more than is realistic, which can only be frustrating

Yeah some prideful people succeed and even excel, but far and away most people who have high opinions of themselves are totally deluded, require constant validation, and drag down everybody around them with their histrionics and chest-pounding

picture in your mind a person who thinks they're hot shit. The first thing that comes to mind is probably an asshole who is pretty much alone in thinking he's hot shit. Wouldn't you rather people thought more highly of you than you do, than think less of you than you do?

You're just making excuses for your failures.

In school almost everyone was a hyperactive little shit and I'm pretty sure it was the same for you. If they were brainwashed to be humble "sheeple" it didn't work since they were running around screaming and being cunts all day. All over the media edgy characters challenge authority. Even centuries ago in China you had characters like Zhang Fei straight up calling lords a bunch of hacks.

Maybe it is different in the deep south or something, I don't know.

Because we still function on the memory and fundamentals of a purely christian society, which was defined by an ideology that shifts the end-goal of life to a post-mortem afterlife (If you work hard in life and adhere to moral systems you will go to heaven), which simply came into existence because poor peasants needed a way to feel good about their life of constant work in opposition to the rich nobility who enjoyed the fruits of the peasants labor, so they comforted themselves with the idea that they are going to come out on top by going to heaven while the nobles will go to hell.
A system born out of slave morality cannot be healthy. A system that forces you to be selfless through arbitrary moral systems cannot be healthy. Take the Nietzschepill anon.

First time I stumble across this board and I don't even know what it is, but it already seems so full of shit.
Being humble works if you're strong. If you're being put down you're not being humble, you're a pushover. You have a moral duty to be strong. Once strong, and even before it really, being humble, which mean being able to see the flaws in what you are, will enable you to become stronger iteratively.
Whats the opposite ? Being arrogant. It can make you superficially attractive, but it will makes you stagnant as a person. It can work if you go the psychopath route and move every time that the mask of your arrogance start to crumble (i.e. people start to realise you're not as competent as you think). It can also work if you go the thug route (i.e. useless scums of societies that relies on the rules of the jungle instead of the rules of the land). You really want to go down these routes though ? Up to you.

Quick rundown on this board for you, there's like one or two demoralization shills that will try to "debunk" anything you say and call you names, it's a nice board, just filled with these subhumans shitting all over it, if you don't like history this board is not for you, and even if you do this board might not be for you.

>>6768027
humble =/= submissive

>You have a moral duty to be strong.
That only works if everyone else shares that moral duty and delivers, otherwise it will look like this.

>there are people itt who don't understand that humility and ambition are not mutually exclusive

Pride is antithetical to humility. Pride is an attitude that causes you to overestimate your worth. Ambition is the desire to increase your worth.

Every single board on 4chan has autists, incels, malcontents, and polemicists shitting up the place with their bullshit. 4chan has always been a place where you have to go prospecting in the shit river to find the nuggets of gold. Don't let one thread (that was clearly made by some angry young man who thinks he has the world figured out) color your opinion of /his/.

When you accept the fact that this board is a place where idiots swagger in thinking they have the world figured out because they've been browsing /pol/ 8 hours a day for the past 6 months only to have their shit pushed in by people who read books, you'll come to appreciate it

do they not under any other system then anon? the soviet upper echelons were all backstabbing corrupt burecrats so were the natzis inner circle of drugged up sociopaths who were put in those positions on purpose because of their ruthlessness.

I don't really know, but i've heard that you should start with Twilight of the Idols and Beyond Good and Evil to get a grasp on his writing style, then maybe the Dawn of Day if you want some ramblings, then do The Gay Science and the Anti-Christ. Then just do whatever and become the √úbermensch in real life.

>>6772791
The Gay Science is widely considered to be an excellent primer for Nietzsche, owing to its aphoristic writing style
