My grandfather used to say that being stedfast was being stubborn for the right
reason. That may be how many people view it, but that's like saying being
confident is being cocky and able to back it up. There is a difference -- mostly in
attitude. While we need to be confident in our faith, unwilling to be removed from
it -- we need to combine that with humility. The key is realizing that it is not
confidence in yourself, but faith in God to do that which He has promised. It is
"the work of the Lord" that is your confidence, not you yourself.

Do you have confidence in the promise of God? Do you show it by working
toward the prize? Or are you turned aside?

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your
labour is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)
