Show Notes:

In the age of social media, images of people "living their best life" constantly bombard us. Often, this includes people showing off in the name of attaining self-confidence.

But through social media alone, it can be tricky to decipher between confidence and egotism. The fact of the matter is, confidence is on trend right now. Nearly every brand sells you on the idea that using their product; you'll feel more confident and free to be yourself.

While that sounds great in theory, it's just a sales tactic. Confidence is something that starts deep in the heart. You can't manufacture or sell confidence.

Egotism, on the other hand, that's a lot easier to come by. I'm suspicious that a lot of people and brands online use confidence as a coverup for egotism.

I want you to be able to develop genuine confidence (just as I want for myself). And I want the world to have less egotistical messages and people in it (for all of our sakes!).

So I researched and analyzed the differences between these two states that can often appear remarkably similar. What I came up with is a list of five identifying differences between confidence and egotism.

In this podcast episode, we compare and contrast the traits of confidence and egotism so that you can better interpret the messages you consume on social media, and so that you can protect yourself from getting stuck in egotistical thought patterns.

P.S. There is also a fabulous free ebook version that dives into the five differences between confidence and egotism, and I'd love for you to grab a copy. Find it right here!
