Is it good to be arrogant, or cocky? Well, that’s a good question for me to ask myself, LOL. The answer? Yes and no. Is the arrogance actually coming from confidence? Being cocky, to a certain degree, breeds confidence. I’ve always been confident in my skills, but at the times that I wasn’t so confident, I was able to make myself believe I was, by ACTING like it, maybe coming off a LITTLE arrogant….LOL. It’s always a good thing to know in your heart and soul that you are capable of succeeding. Having the confidence to get the job done is always good, but keep it blended with humility. To gloat about how good you are may be stepping over the line into arrogance.
When you gloat and brag about your skills all of the time, and when the words coming out of your mouth supersede your actions, then you’re just a bullshitter. You have to ask yourself if your arrogance or cockiness is just camouflage for your insecurities.
So let your actions speak louder than your words, and when you do that, you will have the right to be arrogant in your confidence. It’s damn true.
