"Confidence" Message & Notes
"Confidence overcomes fear. Lack of confidence can lead to paralysis from fear. Fear of failure. To succeed, you need the confidence to face and overcome your fears. Believe in themselves. Self-confidence means believing in yourself." - Victoria Anderson
"There is one particular component of leadership that is so important, so necessary, that without it, leadership cannot exist. That component is confidence. Self-confidence is the fundamental basis from which leadership grows. It was her lack of confidence to commit to her decisions and goals." - Forbes, March 1, 2008
False confidence feels just like real confidence right up to the point that you land.
False Confidence focuses on me, flattery, pride, position, talent, and comparison.
Move the focus of your confidence from yourself and put it on God’s mighty hand.
"In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.

Focuses on God, His love, strength, faithfulness and the task at hand.
The ultimate confidence. Humble people are unstoppable.
They have nothing to lose.
