vainglory

(noun) Boastful, unwarranted pride in one's accomplishments or qualities.

Synonyms: boastfulness

Usage: I share my substance with the poor, making no display of good works, lest I let hypocrisy and vainglory, those enemies that subtly take possession of the most watchful heart, find an entrance into mine.

The two halves of this word pretty much define it. Vain people have an overly high opinion of themselves, and glory is an extreme amount of attention or fame. Vainglory is possessed by people who are vain and like to glorify themselves: they're cocky and egotistical. Anyone who always tells you about how smart, attractive, or successful they are is displaying vainglory. Vainglory is the opposite of humility.

Vainglory is a quality possessed by people who are conceited, boastful, and full of themselves. It's an ugly trait.
