I believe in you

Has anyone every told you that they “believe in you”?

What does that even mean? It means someone believes in your capability to complete a task or set of tasks, normally when the pressure is on.

Whether anyone has ever actually said these words to you or not, I’m sure you can understand that someone stating that to you may either give you confidence and spur you on, or terrify you and make you scared that you’ll fail.

If you are scared of failing, doesn’t that make it more likely that you will fail?

Don’ t we have to have confidence in ourselves and our own abilities to achieve difficult or pressurised tasks? Having said that, one of the worst things you could do  is be over-confident in your abilities, as just like not being confident at all, over confidence is just as likely to be your downfall when the pressure is on.

So be realistic about your abilities and be confident in them, because you can achieve your goals, and the goals set for you by others, if you have confidence in your ability.

Believe in yourself!

  1. To be honest, I really doubt my own abilities most of the time. Plus, I usually get stressed out when I try to do something while relying solely on my own capability. For me, surrender to God is the answer. I try to rely on Him to help me do things, especially the tough stuff. It’s like what Paul said… “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:10)
    For me, when I admit my weaknesses, then I turn more fully to God for help. And He’s faithful.
