Empowerment: Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
Live Empowered with a Healthy Self-Confidence!
The self-confident person has faith in their own abilities and judgment.
And believe me…
Life flows along much easier for those who are empowered with confidence in who they are.
Top 7 Reasons to Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
1. Self-Confidence Explores Life
How can you explore what life has to offer and what you are capable of doing if you lack faith in yourself? Keep in mind the opposite of faith is fear. And fearful people tend to be stuck living as puppets and never able to explore their true potential.
2. Loving Yourself Equals Loving Your Neighbor
How can we love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 19:19), if we don’t even like ourselves? Learn to like yourself, so you can eventually love yourself. It is a vital key to living empowered.
Stop telling yourself you are a useless, ugly, good-for-nothing. In order to effectively love your neighbor, you first need to be able to say “I Love Me” too.
3. Confidence is Contagious
How can we encourage others who are struggling in life if we are constantly walking around with a negative, low opinion of ourselves? Confidence is contagious and should be passed around. When we walk in confidence and assurance, it helps lift up and encourage others around us who are weak.
4. Rise to the Top with Confidence
How can living a life with low self-esteem bring out the best you have to offer? Quit saying I can’t do this and I can’t do that, and start confessing that you can be all God created you to be. Confidence is a leadership building quality.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:13
5. Confidence Gives a Positive Edge
How can a lack of self-confidence, and a mind that is full of negative thoughts, result in a positive outlook on life?
If you want a positive edge then develop your self-esteem. Confidence can empower your life with positive energy and positive actions. A healthy self-confidence allows you to live from a positive base.
6. Self-Confidence is the Power to Overcome Rejection
How can a person expect to handle the rejections of life without a strong self-confidence? We all have to deal with rejection in life and it usually starts at an early age. Rejection can cause much pain and develop an overwhelming inferiority complex.
It takes the empowerment of self-confidence to deal with the attacks of rejection. Instead of constantly asking “what is wrong with me?” a healthy level of confidence refuses to be intimidated. Self-confidence provides the understanding to know that we do not reject ourselves, simply because someone else does.
7. True Self-Confidence Glorifies God
How can we live a life that glorifies God if we live by fear instead of faith? True self-confidence comes when we are strong and confident in the Lord. Our self-confidence should be grounded by faith in God. Living a victorious life by faith glorifies God.
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord.” — Psalm 30:24
Now that you’ve read the above seven reasons; doesn’t it make sense to develop your self-confidence?
Do yourself a favor: Live empowered with self-confidence. But, be warned; you are not the center of the universe – God is. However, it is possible to walk boldly and confidently as a child of God, and at the same time maintain a humble heart.
May you live empowered with healthy self-confidence and growing prosperity!
