Observations – Installment #2

When someone is trying to “sell” you or “pitch” something to you, they’re usually coming from a position of arrogance, although it may also be ignorance. And if you hold firm opinions which counter their intentions, those who can’t debate with you very well will likely view you as the opposition.

Don’t let this behavior bother you. Arrogant people harbor the belief that they have nothing to learn and nothing you say or do will have an impact on that.

Stay your own course and revel in the confidence you exhibited. Confident people believe that they can continually help others to learn – as they continue to learn themselves. Confident people share their value with others without seeking anything in return. And if you’re providing value, you’d be remiss not to do so, since it’s always a “win-win” proposition.
