Self Confidence and EgotismJun 15 2012 Believe in yourself, but do not tell the world what you can do — show it! You should be cautioned, however, to learn the difference between Self-confidence, which is based upon sound knowledge of what you know and what you can do, and egotism, which is only based upon what you wish you knew or could do. Learn the difference between these two terms or you will make yourself boresome, ridiculous and annoying to people of culture and understanding. Self-confidence is something which should never be proclaimed or announced except through intelligent performance of constructive deeds.If you have Self-confidence those around you will discover this fact. Let them make the discovery.
