Growing confidence and self-esteem is a process that continually builds on itself. We are more open to trying new things and growing confidence and efficacy where we see stepping out of our comfort zone as an opportunity to learn and grow rather than in terms of success or failure. When we try new things, it is helpful to have a habit of reflecting on the what was learnt and what can be improved. Having a growth mindset and visualising success enables us to pick ourselves up, reflect, revise and try again. We grow confidence, efficacy, self-esteem and agency through the process.
Where we trust that God walks with us and forgives us when we fall short, we are freed to begin again. God believed in us so much that He sent His Son to die for each one of us. God doesn’t leave us stuck where we were. He invites us to learn and grow through His grace. We are empowered to renew and grow every day.
