STOP AND THINK – Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence. (Vince Lombardi, late renowned football coach)

Perhaps, nowhere is peer influence more evident than in the sports world. The attitude of teammates often carries more weight than that of family or friends. So, when someone on the team shows extraordinary self-confidence, the whole team seems to be more self-assured. But, when one member appears less confident, the team’s momentum may falter as well.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. (Jeremiah 17:7)
