You Need the 3 Cs

You Need the 3 Cs

Do You Have

Competence, Capacity, and Confidence?

They’re the 3 Cs and they’re important to have so we can develop our full potential. Checking with one of the online dictionaries, we can confirm that competence is “the ability to do something successfully or efficiently.

Capacity, in this context here, is “the ability or power to do, experience, or understand something.

And confidence, of course, is “the state of feeling certain about the truth of somethinganda feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.”

Here’s your Friday inspiration…


“Lord, I praise You that Christ is not a weak person outside me, but a tremendous power inside me….through Him I am competent to cope with life, to do Your will, to love with Your love, to be more than a conqueror.

How I rejoice that I can grow, develop my gifts, enlarge my capacities…I need not be forever shackled by my past, but that with confidence and joy, I can look forward to actually becoming all that You have in mind for me to be.”

–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”



My Reflections


So this is the solution for the problem: instead of comparing myself and feeling like I’m falling short, I should just be thankful for and continue to develop the gifts God has given me. I need to trust Him to continue to develop my competence, capacity, and confidence as I move forward into the blessings awaiting me in life!


So What Are YOUR Thoughts?


Do you ever feel like you’re still entrapped by your past?


Is your past keeping you from realizing your full potential ?


Are you able to easily demonstrate competence, capacity, and confidence?

  1. My best teacher is my past experiences. The greatest lessons are those that you learn first hand. Not all are pleasant, but these are the ones that motivate me to push a little further towards the goal I set for myself.

  2. Words of encouragement are always great. I sometimes have to check it out myself and give myself words of encouragement. Sometimes that not enough and I turn to the Bible and God and Inalways feel better.

  3. This is a beautiful article, I feel so much inspired and motivated now. While I was reading some of the quotes,
    my perspective started to change towards certain things going on in my life right now. Glad I came across this post. Thank you for sharing with us 🙂
