Confident Or Cocky: What's The Difference?
Some of my clients who aspire to be more confident have admitted they fear that their increased confidence will be perceived as cockiness. There is a definite difference between these two behavioral styles, and you will know which one you are exhibiting when you ask yourself the following question:"What am I thinking about those who are in my presence?"
When you are cocky, you are guilty of some or all of the following:
- Considering yourself better than others: You are constantly comparing, and you come out as the winner most of the time.
- Not smiling at all or smiling only with your mouth.
- Seldom asking questions: You are too busy trying to impress them with your own stories and knowledge.
- Non-focused listening: You aren't listening because you are too busy thinking of the next thing you want to say.
- Eyes shifting during conversation: Either glancing at your phone because you are distracted or looking around to see if someone "better" has come into view for you to talk to.On the flip side, when you are confident, You do the following:
- There is no need to compare yourself with others because you are comfortable in your own skin.
- When you greet someone, you look them in the eye while smiling with your eyes in addition to your mouth.
- You take a genuine interest in them by making them feel like they are the most important person in the room.
- You stay focused when listening to them, making them feel like they are the only person in the room.If you think highly of others, your confidence will never be mistaken as cockiness.
