Imagine, you’re in a nice tailored black suit with a crisp white shirt and polished black dress shoes. You’re walking up to meet a gorgeous woman. Your heart is racing, but you would think you had it all together right? Wrong, you are wearing a façade of confidence.
When walking up to a woman she is already prejudging you before you even speak. Usually they are smart enough that they can see right through the façade of what you are wearing and the fake confidence you are producing because confidence is not about what you are wearing, but who you know.
I am a firm believer in first impressions matter and that real confidence can make the difference.
The goal of dressing nice and looking confident is to try and boast your confidence in yourself, but when you are confident in who God has made you, that is true confidence. No more is it trying to prove to everyone that you are confident. When that happens it shows yourself that you are no longer wearing a confidence costume, but wearing confidence like your skin.
Confidence is about knowing who you are in Christ and how he’s made you. While a slim fitting suit that amplifies your features shows others that you’re confident. True confidence works from the inside out.
