There is a stark difference between being confident and being boastful. Confidence is admired by most people, while boasting is detested by almost everyone.
The book of Proverbs has much to say about boasting:
“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.”
“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”
My father had something to say about this topic, as well:
“Son, if you pat yourself on your back, you may break your arm.”
