September POWerful Word – CONFIDENCE – Week 3
Today we’re going to talk about having confidence in what we think, what we choose and what we say. We need to become confident in our brains! When we’re babies, someone else makes all our decisions for us. Now, we need to have confidence in our own ability to think, make choices, and say what’s on our minds. What choices do you need to make each day (i.e. clothes, friends, working hard)? Are you confident in those choices? Henry Ford once said; “If you think you can or you can’t, you are right!” What does that mean? If you already think you can’t do something, does it affect your confidence? If you repeat the words in your mind, “I can’t” “I’m not good enough” “I stink at this!” how does that affect how you feel? What or who helps you feel confident about your choices? Think about a time that you needed to make a tough choice. Who/what helped you to feel more confident? Who can YOU help so that they feel more confident in their choices?
If you have time: How can you be confident in your choices when your friends want to do something that you don’t think is a good idea?
