The Danger of Over-Confidence (Jeremy Kingsley)

Winning Well Connection

Jeremy is one of those kindred spirits who just picks up the phone every now and then and says, “How’s it going? and How can I help?” He’s a great role model of confident humility and understands that the real competition is mediocrity–the more we help one another’s businesses to grow, the more collective impact we can have in the world.

I’ve enjoyed sharing ideas and resources with him over the years.

Winning Well Reflection

“When you brag about yourself, that’s called ego. When you brag about someone else, that’s called encouragement.” There’s definitely a tension between telling the stories about yourself that build your credibility and visibility and not becoming arrogant or overconfident. We’ve both walked on either side of that line and appreciate the recommendation Jeremy shares to be confident in your abilities, yet humble in your attitude. What a great expression of confident humility!
