SELF-ESTEEM - Video #5 - What is Arrogance?

ABOUT THIS VIDEO: I hope you understand the thumbnail for this video is a JOKE.

Sometimes when you are self-confident, people think you are arrogant...even if there is undeniable proof that you have the right to boast. For example, if you got a perfect 100 on a final exam, and no one else did, and you said, "I got the best score out of the class," then you aren't boasting; you are just stating the truth.

However, those with poor self-esteem will SEE it as boasting. Actually, they might not even really see it that way; they might just be jealous. Since they cannot cope with their jealousy, they would rather shame you into believing your proud moment is one of arrogance.

Even if you say that you are just proud of yourself, not arrogant, then you will get one of these know-it-alls who quotes the Bible and says, "Pride goeth before a fall."

You know what you say?

"I cannot take that as a given, seeing as how it is coming from someone who picks and chooses which parts of the Bible to follow."

And you can tell them Steve sent ya.
