Be confident, not arrogant

Many of us who are confident turn out to be arrogant. Over-confidence can spill into arrogance and no one likes arrogance, let alone having to deal with someone who is arrogant. Confident people ooze optimism and that makes them emotionally strong, but it’s seeing themselves as superior that changes the state of play.
