Children in China are taught about the importance of being modest as they are growing up and are frequently reminded of the Chinese saying by their parents and teachers. i.e. “complacency induces failure, while modesty generates progress and success.”
It is a virtue to be humble and low-profile, NOT to parade accomplishments in front of others, but leave it to others to speak good about you ( As the saying goes in China: “You are truly good only if others say so”).
Not to be complacent about the current achievements. When receiving compliments, instead of fully accepting, in China it is proper to say, “You are overstating my achievements, I still have a lot to learn.”
Being modest in your language and your manners will be highly appreciated in China.
