Confident or Arrogant



There’s a fine line between Confidence and Arrogance and building Confidence takes work and always in progress. Arrogance is simple. In fact, it’s very easy to come off as an Arrogant/Jerk/Asshole that people will want to avoid.

Some Characteristics of Arrogant people are:

  • Being prone to self satisfied boasting.
  • Tending to be smug & superior with impulse control problems.
  • Abusing relationships, assuming their needs come first in any situation. If not they become angry and bullying.
  • Adopting an air of superiority, simply because that have skill or luck in a particular area of life.
  • Being Blind to their own faults and so unlikely to change or improve themselves.

Confidence is Inspiring; Arrogance is a Turn-Off.

I knew someone that put the capital A on asshole. This young man was gifted with good looks and his parents gifted him a hefty allowance. But, he always use condescending phrases and ready to put down everyone. He was never to be blamed, only praised. Last I heard, he no longer has many friends to socialize with, because he is still sitting in the Arrogance chair and never learned how to be Confident.

Everyone talks about being Self-assured & Confident and forget that Confidence is a process not the Finish line. There will be days when you feel like you’re starting from square one - - Take a deep breath, remember the self-confidence hurdles you’ve already cleared, and just keep going.  Look the part. Or, as they say, “fake it ’til you make it.”  If you know that you look like a confident, capable person, and you Love YOU. Eventually you’ll start to feel it, too!  And isn’t that what "Living your Best Life" is all about?
