Being humble does not mean being weak or beating ourselves up or belittle ourselves. There is power that comes from humility, humility includes recognizing our dependence upon God and desiring to submit to his will.
Jesus was the perfect example of being humble. He had all power, including the power to create the earth and be resurrected after dying. (John 5:26 states: "For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.") However, even with all of that power, he was still humble and submitted himself to the will of the Father as stated in John 8:28, "Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things."

How Do We Become More Humble?
We do it through fasting and prayer. In Helaman 3:35, we learn more about that, "Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God."

An apostle of today said, "We don't discover humility by thinking less of ourselves; we discover humility by thinking less about ourselves" (Deiter F. Uchtdorf, General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, October 2010).
