“Confidence is believing you’re good. Arrogance is believing you’re better than anyone else. Leaders need to be confident, not arrogant.”
In leadership there is a fine line between what is deemed as being a confident leader and what is considered as an arrogant leader. As author, speaker and podcaster Simon Sinek says in today’s quote when you breathe confidence you are only comparing yourself to yourself in believing that you are good. Good in the sense of what you value, in what you believe in. You put the needs of others before yourself. You are selfless, not selfish. When you are arrogant, the mindset is that no one holds a candle to you and that there is no we, it is just an all about me type philosophy. Confidence brings forth a long lease on life with more staying power while strengthening relationships as arrogance does not and causes more of a rift with those around you. It is up to you to decide which pathway you will choose.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
