Living Courageously Confident

Share This Post



When someone lives courageously confident this might sometimes be misunderstood and labeled as arrogance. When we actually take a closer look at the definitions of what the two words, confidence and arrogance, mean we can fully understand the stark difference between the two. Let’s also look at what it means to be courageous…

cou·ra·geous

kəˈrājəs/
adjective
not deterred by danger or pain; brave.


con·fi·dence

ˈkänfədəns/
noun
a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.


ar·ro·gance

ˈerəɡənt/
noun
an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people

To break it down even more let’s examine the differences…

Arrogance is usually a mask for insecurity. Confidence is only present when true humility is also present. Arrogance tends to come from a place of hate. Confidence comes from a place of love and appreciation of self and others. Arrogance is exclusive and close minded. Confidence is inclusive and open minded to new ideas and ways of thinking. Arrogance has everything to prove. Confidence has nothing to prove. Arrogance knows everything. Confidence is always learning.

Confidence is knowing who you are while not shrinking for fear of making others around you feel insecure. Confidence is giving yourself permission to let your true enthusiasm and joy for life shine. Confidence is giving others the freedom to let their own light shine in their own unique way. Confidence is a true form of courage. Living courageously confident does not mean living with an absence of fear. Living courageously confident is to push forward in the face of fear while embracing it and conquering it. Living a courageously confident life is choosing to live your life in freedom, love, and gratefulness. Let’s all go out and strive to live courageously confident lives while helping others do the same! 🙂
