“Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.”
~Peter T. McIntyre
People confuse confidence with arrogance. The individual who spends their time lost in defense of their position simply for the sake of standing their ground, is showing arrogance, not confidence and eventually loses the respect of those around them. This arrogance usually stems from a lack of character and ironically of confidence. Leaders and individuals who command our attention and devotion are those with the character and confidence to know and even express when they are wrong. Build your confidence and your leadership credentials by embracing your fallibility with humility and strength.
