“Confidence is to believe you can do it. Cockiness is to believe you can do it better than anybody else” – Carl Jeffers.
When it comes to your professional life, there’s always some boundaries to keep in mind.
You need to be ambitious without being ruthless, opinionated without being overbearing, and accomplished without being insufferable.
You also need to exude confidence without tipping into arrogance.
So, what’s the difference? Psychologists say that confidence comes from within, whereas cockiness feeds on the opinions of others.
A confident person will accept they’re human. They’ll be proud of their successes, but keep in mind their flaws and failures. They treat themselves with compassion while taking responsibility for their actions.
An arrogant person, on the other hand, can’t face the thought of criticism or defeat. Instead of working at a problem, they’ll blame others for their incompetencies or ditch a half-finished project if it’s anything less than perfect.
