Confidence Knockers

Your confidence will come under attack.

What from? Here's a list that I collected from a recent staff meeting as we all brain-stormed around our life and leadership experiences:

  • Doubt.
  • Mistakes or failure.
  • Fear.
  • Criticism or negative words from other people.
  • Disappointment.
  • Intimidation.
  • Negative 'self-talk'.
  • Unmet expectations.
  • Lack of knowledge.
  • Poor physical health.
  • Tiredness.
  • Limitations.
  • Opposition.
  • Lack of opportunity.
  • Comparison with others
  • Bullying or abuse fron other people.
  • Unresolved conflict.
  • Discouragement.
  • Frustration.
  • Lack of encouragement.

What destroys your confidence? Take some time to think about it. What's holding you back or holding you down at the moment? We all need to know our enemy if we are going to overcome and develop the confidence God calls us to.

Tomorrow we'll look at some confidence builders.
