#24: How to Protect your Confidence

Thrive 2019 Candids-8675


If you’re ready to learn all about how to protect your confidence as a leader, you’re in the right place! Let’s start the year off strong by staying strong and confident as we go forth in the world and use our unique talents and gifts.Before we get into that, though, I’ll dig into the question of drawing a clear line between ministry and business. How do you avoid being taken advantage of in your business when you serve and minister for free?I made the difference very clear from the beginning that my business was business (and therefore paid), and that my ministry events were ministry (and free). In your business, it’s important that people know that you charge for your services. However, when you’re in ministry, continue to serve in that vein as well with a very specific line between the two.This is why I held my first live event for my business at a hotel rather than my church. In this way, I drew a line between my ministry and my business. This is an example of setting clear boundaries between the two, which will help you avoid confusion and frustration later on! And now, onto confidence! Sometimes, going higher means experiencing more turbulence. This is why it’s so important to care for our confidence as we move forward and upward in our journeys. Here are some fantastic tips to help you protect your confidence:

  1. Have a clear strategy of what you’re going to do.
  2. Have the right (supportive) people around you!
  3. Know your “why.”
Don’t forget to tune into this episode to learn exactly why these strategies are so incredibly powerful, and how you can put them to work for you. Here’s to an amazing 2019 full of confidence, success, and making a difference!
