Arrogance is a Hollow Shell

Be confident in who you are and what you're capable of while recognizing that we all have weak spots and we all have room to grow.

No one can do it alone and you'll eventually need a group of people around you to help take you to where you want to go.

There's a fine line between true confidence and arrogance.

Arrogance isn't true confidence.

Arrogance is a hollow shell, a shiny metal plate of steel covering one's insecurities, one's fragile sense of self.

Arrogance isn't strength, it's a mask.

You'll need great people around who you can learn from, who'll give you perspective, who will help take you there.

Trust me, no one wants to work with a self-centered egomaniac.

The most talented artists I've ever worked with are the most humble people you'll ever meet.

And the ones who give off any arrogant vibes are the least talented and the most insecure.

When you're great, you don't need to pretend you're great, you just are.

Your work and your talent speaks for itself.

The better you are, the more open you are to feedback without being defensive.

The better you are, the more you value the contributions of others.

The better you are, the more real you are, and the more people will connect with you.

Let your work and your talent speak for itself.

Confident modesty is the true artist's way.
