Igeres HaRamban #40

"And let your head be bowed and your eyes should be cast down to the earth and your heart should be uplifted."

Do not lust after the table of Kings for your table is greater than their's and your crown is greater than their crown and your employer is trustworthy to pay you for your work(Pirkei Avos 6:5)

Do not act like a big shot because a big shot receives all his merit in this world. Instead,walk in a humble way and do not look at what others have.In this way you will not become jealous and come to act like a big shot.Be happy with the portion that Hashem gives you in this world and trust in your heart that Hashem is saving your full reward for you in "Olam HaBa",the next world.(Midrash Shmuel)
