Confidence without humility quickly becomes arrogance, leading to close-minded decision-making and missed opportunities for improvement—both in yourself and your company. So stay humble, realize you’re not the smartest person in the room and learn from everyone and every experience, as much as humanly possible.
However, you should have a deeply rooted belief in yourself. This doesn’t mean that you don’t doubt or question your decisions, in fact, it’s the opposite. You should be constantly questioning your decisions, knowing that there’s always room for improvement in everything you do and know. This is where humility comes into play.
The benefit of this mentality is that you will know, deep down inside you, that if you remain open minded, learn and receive help from others, and trust in your growing abilities, you’ll eventually get to your destination or goal.
