You’re not suggesting that your opinions are better than anyone else. But you do believe they are just as valid.
Rather than come from arrogance, know it comes from genuine excitement and enthusiasm for what you're discussing.
People with strong personalities don’t see why they should downplay who they are.
You have the willingness to participate that others did not show.
Of course, leadership is a skill that is developed. But the reality is that some people also have certain traits which give them a head start.
We’re all grown-ups right, so you don’t believe anyone should get to hide behind excuses.
It’s not that you think that other people should feel the same. But you know in no uncertain terms how you feel about most things.
When you have clear preferences, you find it easier to say no to the things that don’t work for you.
You don’t seek external validation, your boundaries and needs are easier to enforce.
It’s not some sort of arrogant conviction that leads you to believe you always make the right choices. It’s more that you prefer to take defined action.
When you are pretty straightforward with people about your needs and wants, as well as your ideas and thoughts — it can be seen as pushy or demanding.
You may be accused of acting coldly or matter-of-factly. But that’s only because in your mind, reason prevails.
If you want to achieve your goals, you need a strong drive.
You recognize mistakes and make amends if it’s appropriate, but then quickly move on.
You take pride in how you look and like to wear things that make you feel good.
