Be Confident But Humble

Be confident but humble.

There is a difference between being confident and being arrogant.

Arrogant people feel entitled born out of insecurity. 

They quickly attach themselves to a tangible object, activity, or talent to serve self.

Alexandria, 27, was raised in a poor squatter area. Since she found work at age 18, she became increasingly moneyed. 

Back home, something changed about her. She began to look down on her aging parents and bully her siblings. 

Her arrogance surfaced and alienated her from her family and where she came from.

Confident people, on the other hand, are humble born out of true inner worth. 

They mindfully attach themselves to a pure or higher cause to serve others, including God.

I’m reminded of Manila mayor Isko, 46, who is now running as one of the favorite presidential candidates for the upcoming national elections.

He too came from the extremes of poverty. A former garbage collector. Selling junk items on the streets to help feed his family.

When you watch him on TV making speeches, you see a very talented, articulate, and confident young politician. 

His accomplishments and records of excellence, integrity, and humility in public service and serving the poor speak for themselves.

Isko once said during a campaign inaugural,

“Lumaki akong busabos ngunit hindi ako naging bastos!” (“I was raised so poor but I never became vulgar”)

The impact of confidence and humility in public service is graphically illustrated to us in Isko’s life. It brings hope to a struggling nation.

Know the difference between arrogance and confidence. Cultivate your security in your being.

Genuine confidence (and not arrogance) is not an instant thing. It’s always a work in progress. It’s lived and practiced every day.

Be confident but humble.

Humility is nothing but truth, and pride is nothing but lying.”— St. Vincent de Paul
