Have you ever worked with someone who positively challenges you to step up your performance and deliver your best work? I know I have and the one thing I can say for sure is that the reason I felt confident enough to step it up and deliver is because they showed belief in me.
It is truly amazing to work in that kind of environment because you know that no matter what the challenge is you will always rise above the circumstance because belief shown in you by another person gives you the courage to try anything and take risks.
It was only after Jesus reaffirmed him that Peter had the courage to stand in front of a crowd of thousands of people and preach the gospel of salvation. Jesus belief in Peter even gave Peter the courage to face the same horrific death He had encountered and this being crucified upside down.
If you are working with someone right now and you know that they are not delivering their best, try to affirm them and tell them that you believe in them. You never know how much your words of encouragement might propel them forward to success.
