“The worst cliques are those which consist on one man.” ~George Bernard Shaw
Arrogance atrophies success. It is only vain imagining – a convenient self-deception that she or he has all the answers and is thereby so important. Actually, the extreme of confidence is arrogance and any extreme is an obstacle because it indicates an out-of-balance perspective.
Arrogance often masks a deep insecurity. Psychological conflicts such as:
- they may think I don’t know the answer
- I am not good enough, or
- I may not be accepted
These imposed conflicts inure a persona of self-importance.
Whether you know enough, are good enough, or will be accepted is seldom the only determiner of success. Confidence is far more significant.
Successful people associate with those who listen, care about others, and are willing to ask for help; the very things that an arrogant person finds hard to do.
Be humble, be confident, be assured that you are enough.
