Is hard working attitude a given or gain-able? And how can one change?
Well, i am very arrogant and over confident by design. I assume over confidence is something i caught after repeatedly getting false praises from people who are easily impressed. This attitude is starting to get on my nerves because it just hampers my routine, surprisingly however, it works wonders for me. I can top my class without touching my books simply because i am confident enough to articulate what is on my mind. And here i go again, arrogance. And i'll be honest with you, i am not the hard working kind at all. I get frustrated if i can't understand things at the first go and often start doing questions without even reading the concept, i sometimes succeed, but it naturally results in shallow understanding of the topic and confusion. If i can't do something, it is very degrading and results in yet again, frustration. On the other hand, my sister accepts that she is no god, is modest and works hard. I wish to change, but can't understand how. Is this an innate character or something i can change? Cause if i could, it would do me a ton of good. Because of the assumption that i am the best or i can't do wrong, i had created a shell around me, but now that i am conscious of what i am doing, i over think everything and can no longer truly appreciate compliments i deserve or work for because i simply assume that the person is easily impressed and i need to work harder.
I would really love if i could change this stupid attitude of mine and work instead of assume.
Thank you! :)
