Confidence is Overrated African Proverbs

African ancestors have a wealth of proverbs on the bolstering overconfident fool. In the world today, there is no shortage of confident people who believe in faking their way to success.



Most people would rather swallow a self-confidence pill to increase their knowledge and ingenuity since embracing inner insecurities and self-doubts is seen as a sign of weakness.

African proverbs on the confident fool
People have more confidence than they need but are not as great as they think. Many see confidence as the key component of success and think that increasing confidence is the only solution to relationship and career problems. 

Fake it till you make it, life is all about perception acting as if but, if people never allow themselves to feel vulnerable and insecure it becomes impossible to build self-confidence. What remains in the world are people playacting at life instead of actuality living life.


African proverbs on the confident fool


Fools are easily deceived.


Hurry Hurry has no blessing.


Stolen things never really make one rich.


If one does too much whispering, a deaf person hears him.


A fool and water will go the way they are diverted.


A fool runs when nothing is running after him.


Only a fool tests the depth of a river with both feet.


A fool’s words taste sweet in his mouth.


Knowledge is like a garden, if it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.


Distant water does not extinguish the fire.
