-McKel (Hill) Kooienga

In all my articles for this site, I have always sited confidence as a key factor to get ahead in any endeavor. If you don’t believe in yourself, than nobody else will either.

But as today’s quote says, there’s a thin line between confidence and arrogance. Once you cross that line, that path that you’re on becomes much more dangerous to tread on with a lot more one-way streets.

-Elbert Hubbard
