Many people try hard to come across as confident but their behaviour is arrogant because they do not understand the difference between confidence and arrogance. Are you one of them treating yourself as confident but people say you are arrogant?
What Is The Difference Between Arrogance And Confidence
Many people in today’s world are so tempted running towards one thing in common and that is leadership. People want to become successful leaders and to become successful you need confidence. Many people have great ideas and skills but are unable to achieve success due to lack of confidence
Often confidence is slightly misunderstood because there is a thin line between confidence and arrogance. They can make or break your career. People who have self-confidence along with humility is always eager to learn whereas arrogant people stop learning. To grow and achieve success, you need to learn new things.
An arrogant person considers himself perfect. This is the chief harm of arrogance. It interferes with a person’s main task in life – becoming a better person.
- Superiority is the main quality
- Feel better when tearing others down
- Insist on correcting other people

I just finished a book called the power of self-confidence and in that book, I say that confidence comes from within. Confidence comes from first of all knowing what your values are, what you stand for and believe in and what you won’t compromise. And then it requires that you know exactly what you want in life, your goals. And then it requires that you become very good at doing the things that lead to achieving your goals.
If you do that you’ll have a high
Now arrogance, on the other hand, is a way of compensating for low feelings of self-esteem and lack of self-confidence.

Sometimes we become pushy and we become loud and we become demanding. just like I say the difference between persistence and insistence is persistence is healthy and positive and polite and insistence is pushy and aggressive.
