There have been people that told me that a ego, tons of confidence, and a driven personality are all terrible things to have. I just said to them that you need all three to succeed in the world and get to the top.
Has anyone told you that a ego, tons of confidence, and a driven personality are terrible things to have? What you said to them afterwards?

The most important thing you need is wits. You have enough motivation and I hope you don't die in a whole if your company lose to it rivalry. If you focus to much on other company and not your own you will lose your head. Focus on rising slowly and than try to be better. You can't always compare yourself to other. You can't be rivalry to Pepsi brand can u? You have to start slow and it takes years. You won't surrive the first 3 years if you don't take things slow and with some smarts.1
i don't think you need all that to succeed. i think working hard is the most important thing.2
People that say that all three are terrible things might be not the best people. You need all three to push yourself to something great.1
I tell them to please wait while I count all the fucks and shits I don't give.2
Yes and I just tell them (in my head) to kiss it. I'm to nice to tell it them to their face.1
I do not care what people think about me, living a better life than most of them.1
Depends on the context. An ego is okay to have. The only time it becomes 'terrible' or rather... counterproductive, is when it drives people away. Great for working your way to the top, but when you're at the top you will find that the only people who actually enjoy your company are either A. Close relatives or B. Those you pay.1

I said that's just who i am, who are you to change that, fuck off.1
No one ever said that because those are required for motivation.1
All of them are fine if they are backed up with facts/evidence/truth otherwise they just suggest arrogance and egotism and a massive lack of self awareness.1
I have been called arrogant by more than a couple of people but everyone is different so I tend to not put a lot of stock in their views. Inguess it is arrogant, but I really don't care that much what they think.1
Confidence is good and having a smidge of ego is fine but too much ego is bad for you it makes you sloppy predictable and can increase chance of mistakes being made1
Confidence is a essential to success but when someone believes they are skilled and are not it's incredibly irritating. I'm sure most people hae an inherent desire to let people know if they're really as good as they think they are.1
Those are like cliche things I've heard all my life but I heard the opposite that its good.1
They haven't, but if I did I would tell them "hurry up with that big mac order would ya?".1
Yes. Myself. An ego is not a good thing to have. There's nothing to be full of yourself over, you're an evolved animal. That's not worthy of being proud of. Confidence is fine, but be confident in things which make sense. As for a driven personality, that depends on what you hope to achieve.1
Hey Gordon Gekko, take a course on "how to win friends and influence people" or something like that. It's all good, but no one will want to do business with you if you're perceived as a brash, egotistical pushy punk.
It seems like you had a "Eureka" moment, but don't have the charm or charisma to be "big" . You forgot to factor in those items, and they're door openers, effectively more important than anything.0
