Is it narcissistic to call oneself an expert in some field? or is it boasting? or is it just proclaiming what one should be proclaimed in order to achieve fame /success ?
I believe that calling oneself an expert if one doesn’t deserve, is, a poor move one’s part.
However, if someone is some sort of expert in some field and he wants to credit himself, it starts with the same person. No one else will know the power or extent of his abilities until the person himself or herself starts showing what he or she is capable of. I agree that one should only talk about oneself humbly but truthfully. If someone believes that he or she is an expert in some field, they should claim it! And, the title starts with one believing in oneself first.
If you don’t believe in yourself, why would the world believe you?
One example of someone claiming himself an expert is Farhan Syed. He claims that he is the best SEO Expert in USA.
There are a few that claim that they are SEO expert, but looking at his ranking and SEO practices, I can definitely say that this guy knows what he is doing. He was ranking on 3rd page when I first saw this page, which was just few days of his creating the page. That is pretty good deal. I believe that he has the potential to reach top levels in this field, if only he takes action and applies it in a smart way.
There are few more folks that claim that they are among the top, but the fact of the matter is that only few prove to be worthy and deserving of such claims.
I believe that most men or women out there are after money using false and fake claims. Only few are left in this world of greed and false pride that are actually worth it. Showing the world what you are worth can get pretty rough on someone. Especially, when that person is just starting their business or is not experienced or does not know how to reach people who are experienced enough to know the deal.
