After last week’s episode about resilience, you may be thinking, “Ok, got it – stick to it! I’ve got this…I’ve got confidence!”
And that’s awesome…still, let’s slow the roll for a minute.
The world sees confidence as “a feeling of self assurance, arising from an appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.”
Hmmm…is it just me, or does that sound a bit like pride? Uh oh, did I ruffle some feathers?
Listen, I’m not judging because there was a time that I believed that definition, too. But the truth is, it’s really about checking ego at the door and realizing confidence isn’t really about us. It’s about trusting God’s power in us…that we are equipped and empowered BY Him to carry out HIS assignment.
After much prayer, study, trial and triumph, I arrived at a multi-layered definition that I call GODFIDENCE that calls for surrender > self-reliance, and goes far beyond what we could ever do on our own. It means:
💥 Knowing God is God and we are not.
💥 Trusting that His Word and His way is such that we are committed to follow how He defines and directs me.
💥 Allowing our trust in Him to override dependence on self.
When you show up with GODFIDENCE, He will bless your obedience and commitment to leaning into how He defines and directs you. He will bless your discipline. And He will develop your business in ways that you would never have even considered or imagined!
