Living mostly in your “sweet spot” will breed confidence. The sweet spot is actualized when a person operates at the center of his or her skill, knowledge, talent, and gifts, reaches full ministry strength, and lives in empowerment. A skill is something acquired through training over a period of time (such as typing). Knowledge is something you learn (such as knowing that if you kick a wasp nest, you will get stung). A talent is a natural aptitude for something which is developed and formed over time (such as playing the piano). A gift is given by God beyond one’s natural ability and is always given as “ours for others” (such as serving). All of these can only be discovered by “doing,” not “hearing.” The only way to learn to lead is by leading. You find your calling by examining your gifts, but you can only determine your gifts by serving others.
