No, you don't want to adopt an attitude of arrogance or superiority, because that doesn't do anyone any good. What's important, though, is that you foster a strong and growing sense of authentic confidence in your abilities.
Everything you do well, you've learned how to do and you've learned how to improve. The powerful thing is, there is no limit to the new and valuable things you can learn.
Though you may not be celebrated as a success in the world's eye, you are indeed absolutely successful in your own unique ways. Each day, each challenge, each experience, each encounter has made you more knowledgeable, more capable, and more effective.
You already have accumulated all sorts of useful skills. And one of the most powerful skills you have is the ability to learn and to perfect even more skills.
Consider your skills, make good use of your skills, and grow them into even more skills. Never forget that you are skilled at being skillful, and you can use that skill to successfully follow any purpose that has real meaning for you.
