What if you never feared what other people thought about you?
What if you had no problem with anyone judging you?
What if you were totally OK with them being wrong about you?
What if you took all criticism and negative remarks about yourself and learned from them?
Take a minute. Really think about this.
My guess, if you're anything like me, that your life would look drastically different.
Here are a few things I came up with if I could truly live this way.
That, my friends, brings us back to the definition of self-confidence.
Do you want to gain more self-confidence?
That means letting go of comparison.
It means seeking God’s approval, not men.
“Am I saying this now to win the approval of people or God? Am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant.” Galatians 1:10
It is stated very clearly that if we’re focused on pleasing people, we aren’t being a servant of Christ.
We aren't confident in what He made.
I know so many of you know this intellectually. You know you shouldn’t care what others think of you, but you get so quickly tangled up in the web of self-doubt.
First, understand that I don’t think we will ever completely let go of what others think about us.
If you struggle with self-doubt and the need to impress, I HEAR YOU. I’m working on it daily myself. But it is important to remember, you can work on it too!
That work is so freeing!
What do you think of God's opinion of you? Do you believe that His opinion is the only one that matters? Do you trust God loves you so much that he is working things for your good?
If you have a God-like opinion of yourself, how do you think you would feel?
If you're feeling more confident, how will you act?
Yep. You probably won't be grabbing those chips quite as often when you feel good about yourself.
But that won't be the best part.
When you let God lead, that's when you feel better, act better and live a freer life.
PS. I'm an expert at helping women lose weight. But not just lose weight, lose it with God in the lead.
