Saint Teresa of Calcutta had so much wisdom! Growing in humility is one of the best ways to practice holiness. We know this from Sacred Scripture:

Humble Yourselves 

1 Peter 5:5-6: "All of you, clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another. God opposes the proud but bestows favor on the humble. So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time."

Saint Teresa also stressed humility. The Church celebrates her feast day on September 5.
