Confidence In the Community

vs. doubt

Trusting and acting on my own judgment and abilities

To practice Confidence, I will:

  • learn from criticism
  • communicate assertively
  • recognize that past negative life experiences do not dictate my future
  • overcome worry
  • visualize success

You’ve Got This! 

by Mary Andres Russell

How encouraging to hear that statement!  Whether from a friend, co-worker, teacher or parent, the statement expresses their confidence in our ability to do the job well, perform the task…  It says that others believe in us, even when we don’t quite believe in ourselves. 

When we speak words of encouragement to others, it has a powerful effect of building their confidence.  We are not only lifting them up, but we are also empowering them to achieve their goals.

Many experts recommend that we praise our children or students four times as often as we correct them.  When we speak words of encouragement, it communicates our expectations and lets children know what they are doing right.  Praise the behavior you want to see, and correct when necessary.    

Who can you encourage today?  A child, a coworker, a student, a grandchild?  Who do you know that would benefit from a quick text or call to let them know, “You’ve got this!”
