7 ways to be confident without being arrogant
By | Lachlan Brown | hackspirit.com
Confidence and arrogance are two sides of the same coin.
They both project an image of self-assuredness, but only one of them is attractive.
Confidence is magnetic, it draws people towards you, and helps you build trust and credibility.
Arrogance, on the other hand, pushes people away and makes you look unapproachable, untrustworthy, and ultimately, unattractive.
I know this all too well, as I have struggled through this myself.
It’s not easy to know when you’re crossing the line from confidence to arrogance, and it took me a while to figure out how to project confidence in an authentic way.
In this article, I’ll give you 7 tips that I’ve learned along the way, to help you walk that fine line, so you can be confident without being a complete douchebag.
1. Focus on other people
Are you tired of feeling insecure and like you’re never enough? Do you constantly compare yourself to others and feel like you need to prove yourself?
Well, here’s the thing: when you’re too consumed by your own insecurities, it often comes across as arrogance.
Think about it: when someone talks about their accomplishments, and you feel the need to one-up them or talk about your own, it’s not a sign of confidence.
It’s a sign of insecurity. And unfortunately, many people misinterpret it as arrogance.
So, if you want to break free from this cycle and truly exude confidence, it’s time to focus on others instead of yourself.
