What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

Has anyone ever heard of that song by Demi Lovato? I think it’s a decent song, but it got me thinking today. Is there ever such a thing as being overly confident?

I was always the kind of girl who doubted myself. I was always super critical about anything I did because I had always been so misjudged in the past by my classmates, my teachers, and even people who I thought were my friends.

Now, I’ve gained a newfound confident; especially when it comes to my singing and my music, but I’ve been saying things I’ve never said before:

“Oh, we could do that better than them!”

I remember one time I was watching Steve Harvey’s talk show, and a guy came on the speak about self-esteem. I forget his name, but he said, “Arrogance is thinking you’re better than everyone else. Confidence is knowing no one is better than you.”

Think about that quote. There is a difference. A big one at that.
