15 Signs You’re Arrogant Though You Don’t Feel Like You Are

15 Signs You’re Arrogant Though You Don’t Feel Like You Are

No one likes to be around an arrogant person since it is a quality that does not attract people. Yet some people may be arrogant and find it difficult to recognize it. Here are 15 signs that you’re arrogant though you might not feel like you are.

1.You are constantly late

There is nothing absurd in being or showing up late once in a while. This may be a bad habit on your part. However when you constantly do this intentionally, this could be a sign that you are arrogant because you seem to feel like your time is more valuable than that of others.

2. You interrupt others a lot

When you interrupt others a lot to show that you have something more important to say than what others are saying, it means you have little regard for the opinion of others and this could be a sign of arrogance.

3. You believe you are better than others

Whether in terms of your looks, intelligence or in your status you believe you are better than others and deserve to be treated better, this means you show a sign of arrogance.

4. You go out of your way to be right

You can’t just accept that you are wrong or that you can be wrong at all. You go to the extreme to offer an explanation for your being right. And after all is said and done you brag about this.

5. You think your status is more important than whatever contribution you make

When you want to take a job or a task you are focused on the title or the status attached to it. You are more interested in how the job will make you feel rather than the commitments involved.

6. When asked, “can you do it?” you always say “yes”

You don’t want to be looked down at. You feel like you are always capable and anytime you back out from a task you demonstrate a flaw.

7. People constantly tell you to give them an opportunity to prove their abilities

You seem to question everyone’s ability to get a task done. You believe you are the only one who can get the job done and thus people offer or plead for you to tolerate them and believe in them rather than stifle them.

8.You despise the weak

You can’t tolerate people who show signs of being fallible. If someone backs out from accepting responsibility and taking charge of a situation, you resent and despise such a person.

9. You have a hard time self reflecting

You find it difficult to stare at the mirror and see yourself for what you really are. You have a hard time to look back at your failures and weaknesses.

10. You love to be talked about

Anytime there is a discussion you like the discussion to be about you. During a gathering you want everyone’s attention to be on you. And if it is about a general subject you want everyone to agree to your opinion.

11. You consider people you don’t like as enemies or threats

Think of the people you don’t like. Do you consider them as threats to your perfect world? Does your blood start to boil when you hear their names or concoct reasons to prove that this person is an idiot?

12. You can’t stand people who are not like you

You want everyone to be like you. You find it difficult to speak positively about anyone who doesn’t measure up to your standards.

13. You have issues building relationships

People find it difficult to flock to you. Most likely the negative quality of arrogance has a way of turning people away. Arrogant people have a way of sacrificing their relationships with friends and other people for the sake of success or self gratification.

14. You shield your inferiority with a superiority complex

Arrogant people always have an Achilles heel, but this they do not want exposed or known by people. Thus they use an invincible front to protect their vulnerabilities.

15. You show false charm but beneath it exists some cruelty

You show false charm as a tool to draw attention to you. But this element of false magnetism can be easily recognized because you cannot sustain it for so long.

7 Ways to Make Life Changing Decisions

7 Ways to Make Life Changing Decisions

Most people don’t know the profound effects of making life decisions. Often times, we go through life oblivious to what thoughts we are thinking and what actions we are taking. Every single decision we make in our days shapes our current reality. It shapes who we are as a person because we habitually follow through with the decisions we make without even realizing it.

If you’re unhappy with the results in your life right now, making the effort to changing your decisions starting today will be the key to creating the person you want to be and the life you want to have in the future.

Let’s talk about the 7 ways you can go about making life changing decisions.

1. Realize the Power of Decision Making

Before you start making a decision, you have to understand what a decision does.

Any decision that you make causes a chain of events to happen. When you decide to pick up a cigarette to smoke it, that decision might result in you picking up another one later on to get that same high feeling. After a day, you may have gone through a pack without knowing it. But if you decide not to smoke that first cigarette and make a decision every five minutes to focus your attention somewhere else when you get that craving, after doing this for a week, your cravings will eventually subside and you will become smoke-free.

But it comes down to making that very first decision of deciding whether or not to pick up that cigarette.

2. Go with Your Gut

Often times, we take too much time to make a decision because we’re afraid of what’s going to happen. As a result of this, we go through things like careful planning, deep analysis, and pros and cons before deciding. This is a very time consuming process.

Instead, learn to trust your gut instinct. For the most part, your first instinct is usually the one that is correct or the one that you truly wanted to go with.

Even if you end up making a mistake, going with your gut still makes you a more confident decision maker compared to someone who takes all day to decide.

3. Carry Your Decision Out

When you make a decision, act on it. Commit to making a real decision.

What’s a real decision? It’s when you decide on something, and that decision is carried out through action. It’s pointless to make a decision and have it played out in your head, but not doing anything about it. That’s the same as not making a decision at all.

If you want to make real changes in life, you have to make it a habit to apply action with your decision until it’s completed. By going through this so many times, you will feel more confident with accomplishing the next decision that you have in mind.

4. Tell Others About Your Decisions

There’s something about telling other people what we’re going to do that makes us follow through.

For example, for the longest time, I’ve been trying to become an early riser. Whenever I tried to use my own willpower, waking up early without falling back asleep felt impossible. So what I did was I went to a forum and made the decision to tell people that I would wake up at 6 AM and stay up. Within two days, I was able to accomplish doing this because I felt a moral obligation to follow through with my words even though I failed the first time.

Did people care? Probably not, but just the fact that there might be someone else out there seeing if you’re telling the truth will give you enough motivation to following through with your decision.

5. Learn from Your Past Decisions

Even after I failed to follow through my decision the first time when I told people I was going to wake up early and stay up, I didn’t give up. I basically asked myself, “What can I do this time to make it work tomorrow?”

The truth is, you are going to mess up at times when it comes to making decisions. Instead of beating yourself up over it, learn something from it.

Ask yourself, what was good about the decision I made? What was bad about it? What can I learn from it so I can make a better decision next time?

Remember, don’t put so much emphasis focusing on short term effects; instead focus on the long term effects.

6. Maintain a Flexible Approach

I know this might sound counter-intuitive, but making a decision doesn’t mean that you can’t be open to other options.

For example, let’s say you made the decision to lose ten pounds by next month through cardio. If something comes up, you don’t have to just do cardio. You can be open to losing weight through different methods of dieting as long as it helps you reach your goal in the end.

Don’t be stubborn to seek out only one way of making a decision. Embrace any new knowledge that brings you closer to accomplishing your initial decision.

7. Have Fun Making Decisions

Finally, enjoy the process. I know decision-making might not be the most fun thing world to do, but when you do it often, it becomes a game of opportunity.

You’ll learn a lot about yourself on the way, you’ll feel and become a lot more confident when you’re with yourself and around others, and making decisions will just become a lot easier after you do it so often that you won’t even think about it.

Anything you decide to do from this point on can have a profound effect later on. Opportunities are always waiting for you. Examine the decisions that you currently have in the day.

Are there any that can be changed to improve your life in some way? Are there any decisions that you can make today that can create a better tomorrow?

Final Thoughts

Some decisions in life are harder to make, but with these 7 pieces of advice, you can trust yourself more even when you’re making some of the most important decisions.

Making a decision is the only way to move forward. So remember, any decision is better than none at all.
