Vanna-maccharia, stinginess in regard of ones reputations: What to practice?

Vaṇṇā-maccharia, stinginess in regard one honor, reputation, don't letting make others use of it, envy (http://forum.sangham.net/index.php/topic,402.msg944.html#msg944) to lose it, is one of the five kinds of maccharia, based on ingratitude, wrong view, and a quality not only absent in all Noble Once, but also a hindrence to attain what ever Jhana, path or fruit (http://zugangzureinsicht.org/html/tipitaka/an/an05/an05.254.than_en.html)

What are practices to train to learn not being stingy in regard of ones honour, beauty, sublimity?

What and where to give into?

What traditional practice is done by faithful followers in that regard?
