[4b middle] R’ Yochanan quoting R’ Shimon bar Yochai: Anyone who possesses a haughtiness of spirit is regarded as though he/she worships idols.

Arrogant people believe that they are the true causes of their successes and possessions [and deny G-d as the proper Giver of all (similar to idol worshipers’ beliefs)]. We must remember not to selfishly take credit for anything, because without Hashem we would have nothing (and even cease to exist).
