Mrs.Schlump If you're wanting to get rid of that voice in your head that's full of self doubt and self hate, start here! Trish gives you the tools to start digging a little deeper. THE SECRET TO KEEPING YOUR PROMISES TO YOURSELF Self-respect.Self-truthMicro habitsPatience WHY YOU KEEP BREAKING YOUR WORD: You think it doesn't matter.You think other people are more important to you.You don't believe that what you do will make a difference.You haven't prioritized properly.You aren't training your thoughts and thinking about what you think about.You are obsessed about the "how" instead of being committed to the "what"You are distracted and throwing hours of your time away watching other peoples' lives.You haven't worked your belief deeply enough.You aren't proactively practicing self-trust. You punish yourself for what you're not doing instead of taking note of what you are doing.You are hyper-focused on the finish line.You aren't willing to be bored.You are cycling in compare and despair.You haven't established solid life routines to set yourself up for success. You are putting too much pressure on yourself and have to-do guilt.You chase perfection instead of progression.You're too focused on what people think about you.

If you stretch yourself too thin, then you are too thinly caring about too many things. Exhaustion results. The trick is to figure out what you care about and what will help you feel like you're moving forward, not being busy. How do we do this? By identifying 2-3 things daily - either in work or in what you do in your home - that feels satisfying.

#423: What Will “They” Say?
What Will "They" Say? PODCAST #423 What will "they" say is often part of the internal self-talk that can keep you sidelined from your dreams. This podcast episode explores who "they" are and how to get their voices to quiet down and even go to "mute" so that you can get on with your life and go do big things. It's time to stop caring so much about what "they" think and this podcast pep-talk will super-fuel you to take massive action and to go be audaciously bold. Get the full show notes at ww.trishblackwell.com/423In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we're talking about: What "they" voices are holding you back in life?What is it that you are so afraid they will say?What happens if you quit or if you stick to something with fierce determination? How to know which to do and how to make sure you quit the right things in 2021 and stick to the things you really want. REVIEW OF THE WEEK I have always struggled with my body image. Now I have a beautiful daughter I am so scared that if she grows up having a mom with poor confidence, that she may never see her own beauty. I went on a search for a positive message and found this podcast. I started from the oldest episode I could scroll back to and it took me exactly where I needed to be! I am a first time mom to a beautiful one year old baby girl, which is exactly where Trish was in 2016. I was thrilled to find out that Trish was also a faith based woman and love that she shares her walk with Christ. Since I have started listening on my way to work everyday I have also purchased her book Insecurity Detox. I love starting and ending my day with Trish's positivity and truth. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, you are truly an inspiration. -Kim Todd God's Perfect Timing. KimBTodd.

An elusive group of people that you can't nameA large category of people that intimate youA small group of specific friends / bullies from 10 years agoA collection of your own thoughts of self-doubt, small-thinking and shame Are they really even talking about you? Are you going to give them the right to reign in your life? And, if they even do say something - so what. Do you want to live cautiously or courageously? Do you want to make an impact or protect yourself? Do you want to come alive or do you want to live half-heartedly? Prenez vie, prenez vie. Feeling and Failing - The Two Things To Go After If you're good at feeling, you'll stop self-sabotaging. If you're good at failing, you'll stop procrastinating. Feeling will give you resilience and self-awareness. Your increased awareness will give you higher quality thoughts and a better self-concept, enabling you to see yourself capable of things far beyond your previous emotional intelligence. Failing will give you courage, perseverance and a stick-to-it-ness / scrappiness that results in the confidence that there is truly nothing that can stand between you and the results you want in life. When Quitting Is Good -Stopping something is powerful, not always weak -Have the courage to do what is right for you - to pivot -Break up with past behaviors How To Stick To What You Want Increase self-trustHave a higher standard of integrity (keeping your word to yourself)Start telling a different narrative about what "they" sayPut more value on what "you" say and what you wantStop worrying about how you look doing it and just do it ANNOUNCEMENTS: Want more results,

#422: How to Win Against Imposter Syndrome
How to win Against Imposter Syndrome PODCAST #422 Imposter Syndrome is an expression of insecurity in which we are so preoccupied by what people think of us that we feel like frauds doing what we are doing.

Often people who struggle with this put a tremendous amount of pressure on themselves and are always looking for external affirmation or qualifications to provide internal validation. This episode explores the Imposter Syndrome internal voice and teaches you how to start evicting it from your self-talk. Get the full show notes at www.trishblackwell.com/422 In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we're talking about: It's your thoughts that make you feel like an impostor, so breaking the syndrome is less about making you feel more qualified and more about thinking better quality thoughts.

#421: 27 Ways to Stop Being a People Pleaser
27 Ways To Stop Being a People Pleaser PODCAST #421 Trying to please others puts you on a hamster wheel of inadequacy, powerlessness and in insecurity. People pleasing makes us co-dependent and cautious with how we appear to others. It makes us addicts to caring what people think and keeps us stuck in a life of stagnant averageness - average happiness, average success, average relationships. You were made for more. This podcast episode will give you 27 ways to confidently start breaking the chains of people pleasing that is holding you back from all that God has for you. Get the full show notes at www.trishblackwell.com/421 In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we're talking about: What is people pleasing, and are you doing it?Why is people pleasing toxic anyways?20 ways to stop being a people pleaser Hello! 5-Stars, by Cocoa282133 Hey Trish! My name is Courtney. I just wanted to let you know, you've made a difference in my life. My life has been a roller coaster. I was a single mom at the age of just 16. I was married by 21. Divorced by 24. I didn't have ANY confidence in myself at that point in my life. One day I was searching podcasts and I feel like God led me to yours. When I say your podcast has CHANGED my life, I truly mean it. It's been really hard to date someone after being cheated on the whole time in my marriage. I had a lot of trust issues and just insecurities. Your podcast has helped me so much more than I could ever thank you for. God bless.

Consider becoming a patron. Just go to https://www.patreon.com/TheConfidencePodcast WHAT IS PEOPLE PLEASING AND ARE YOU ONE? People pleasing goes beyond simple kindness. It's based off a low opinion of yourself. It's a need for others to like you. It's hard for you to say no.You over-apologize, for everything.You're quick to agree and agreeability is a value. You struggle with authenticity. You're an over-giver.You don’t have any free time - because you give all of yours away. WHY IS PEOPLE PLEASING TOXIC? Because it's rooted in caring too much what people think. It's a belief system that thinks - if I can just make people happy, then I will be happy because I will belong, I will be important and I will be enough. It makes our happiness contingent on someone else's happiness. We become victims to other people's whims and decisions. (Need more coaching on letting go of what people think?

#420: How to Change the Way You Think

In fact, our brains are wired to change and think differently when the right neurological strategies are applied. This podcast episode will help you intentionally think about how to change the way you think. No longer will you feel stuck in old thought patterns once you know how to intentionally change the way you think and train your thoughts. Get the full show notes at www.trishblackwell.com/420 In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we're talking about: Why we get stuck in old thinking patternsThe differences between positive thinking and powerful thinkingHow to start changing the way you think REVIEW OF THE EPISODE: Love this podcast! 5-Stars. Willow_Lee I began listening to The Confidence Podcast earlier this year and am incredibly grateful for the joy, peace and confidence I feel after listening to each podcast. Trish, you are a rockstar of an encourager and this world is lucky to have your passion and wisdom pouring into it. The way you guide using God's Word is incredibly refreshing and uplifting. Even in the short months since I discovered your podcast, you have taught me to better love myself and to show up for myself and all that God has planned for me. Trish, thank you for leading by example, for showing up, and for using your talents and experience to lift others up with you. Hang out with me on YouTube at www.youtube.com/trishblackwell.

Consider becoming a patron. Just go to https://www.patreon.com/TheConfidencePodcast WHY WE GET STUCK IN OLD THINKING PATTERNS We haven't considered another way. We think changing is too hard, or won't work. We don't know other people who have transformed. We are stuck in distraction and stagnancy. We haven't been challenged to rise to living life to the fullest. We are intimidated by the emotions surrounding thinking. We have self-identified as a hot-mess or a sub-standard self-concept. We have a disorganized life, and therefore a disorganized mind. I will have to give an account for my life - and for my stewardship of what I have been given or what has been within my control. This inspires me and challenges me. Old thinking - and an attachment to old thinking ("this is just how I think," "this is just how I have always been," "this is just what everyone I know thinks") - is rooted in a pattern that once kept us protected. But what once protected us temporarily can harm us long-term and keep us from our potential. These concepts grow mold and layers of dust telling us messages of >worthlessness >lack >overwhelm >powerlessness >averageness To start this process, we first must come courageously face to face with our emotions and let ourselves FEEL. The Feeling Tunnel start, middle and end of feeling. Feel whatever it is, and then move past it - telling yourself what you are in agreement with and what you are committed to making happen. THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN POSITIVE THINKING AND POWERFUL THINKING I don't want you to be a positive thinker, I want you to be a powerful thinker. Mindset Mantra: I am more than just a positive thinker, I am a powerful thinker. Journaling Prompts for Powerful Thinking: The more I become aware of my thoughts, the more power I have over them.

I haven't listened to her in the past 3 years and finally came back to get confidence in myself again. A year ago I quit my high paying job because it was toxic to me and I was very happy to quit there. At that time I didn't know it would take me a year later to get a job. It's been a hard year interviewing having them tell you we like you, but you don't have a degree, or we are going to hire someone with no experience. Makes you feel like crap. Finally landed a job that I didn't think I would get because I didn't have the experience but told them I would do anything and work up in the company. I have learned so much at this job and it was a blessing that I got it. Anyways. My confidence was way down. Just listening to Trish in the past month has changed my confidence for the better. I have a lot of episodes to get caught up on but I am glad I am back. Thank you Trish. HOW TO USE 2020 TO YOUR CONFIDENCE ADVANTAGE 2020 is a year of division, cancel-culture and polarity. If you can walk through this year and still think that you have control over what people think or that you can sway or convince people to like you, then you haven't been paying attention. Give yourself a freedom pass to be okay not being liked.

REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Confidence After Abandonment, by Rachel_Noah88, 5 Stars This podcast is exactly what I needed. When my childhood "best friends" began to ignore me and exclude me from gatherings without explanation, I fell into a very dark place. I began to blame myself for the loss of the relationships and I obsessively replayed every interaction I had with them, over the 20 year period, over and over in my mind. I not only lost all my confidence, but I became very insecure. It caused me to lose all my trust in my other healthy relationships in my life and I began to hurt those that loved me most. Then, I found Trish. Trish's encouraging spirit is beyond inspiring, and I love her ability to relate life situations to the word of God. She allowed me to gain confidence in my body image, my career, and most importantly, myself and my relationships with others. I would love to hear more on "how to be confident after abandonment," because although therapy and Trish have helped me a lot, I still have a long way to go. Love you, Trish! WHAT INSPIRED THIS ON MY HEART: And idea is where we all start. But to take it to a dream, means we have to believe in it. Then, to next level the dream to actualization of it, goals need to be put into place. My job as a coach is to call you up to your highest self. It is to tell you the truth and show you were you aren't being specific. When we aren't specific, we will wander. When we wander, we will get mediocre results and experiences. Your Belief System matters. Do you belief that you were created for more? All Beliefs Create (ABC) something. Believe that you matter. Believe that you have purpose. Believe that you can awaken passion. Believe that you can be adventurous as you chase what you want. If you don't know what you want, you won't know what to go after - and you'll live a life of average drabness. You were made for more. ---- > the number of people who come to me and simply don't know what they want or what they are passionate about is astounding. Do not be discouraged if you find yourself in this category --- culture has taught us to follow the check-boxes. It's time to stop drifting and to start taking control of what you are willing to dream and design for your life. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DREAMS AND GOALS? Goals are something you are acting on. Dreams are something you are just thinking about. Goals have deadlines. Dreams are loosy goosey. Goals have a cost. Dreams are free. Goals produce results. Dreams don't. Goals can change your life. Dreams can inspire you. Goals have a focus. Dreams don't. Dreams can inspire you, but goals can change your life. Goals do come true. Ideas?

How to Stop Feeling Like You Have So Much to Do PODCAST #416 Do you always feel like you have so much to do? Are you living in a state of exhaustion, overwhelm, and feeling like you can never quite catch up?

Thank you Trish! -Cfhved113 WHAT SAYING "I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO" IS ACTUALLY DOING TO YOUR HEART “I have so much to do” = victim minded statement It preemptively creates defeat, and overwhelm.It talks about your mountain, instead of talking to your mountain.It creates competing demands, exhausts you mentally and emotionally and emphasizes scarcity in your life. It makes you feel stretched thin and without power. Realize that it's not the task or the list that you're avoiding, it's the uncomfortable feelings that come from it. Or, it's the missing motivation to do what you technically want to do. Don't wait for the motivation - do the thing and the motivation will come. Fundamentally, having too much to do crushes your spirit and makes you feel a sense of pointlessness. WHAT TO SAY BACK TO YOURSELF WHEN YOU HEAR YOURSELF SAY: "I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO" Mountain, move. Mountain, I've got you. Trish, just do the next right thing. Trish, create a small win. I am confident, courageous and capable. I can do hard things. I will create order and take action. I am a doer and I am not intimidated by what is ahead. My job is to be faithful to what I can do, and to release what I can't. My job today is to learn, to love, and to live well.

#415: How to Exchange Your Anxious Heart for a Peaceful Heart
How to Exchange Your Anxious Heart for a Peaceful Heart PODCAST #415 Anxiety, or overwhelm, can make your spirit feel crushed, and your life feel stuck. I know, I've lived that life. In this podcast episode we are going to pull back the curtain on what living with anxiety looks like and talk about some effective ways to help alleviate and manage the anxiety on a daily basis that has worked for me and for my students. God invites us into a life of peace - and He can take our anxious heart and exchange it for one that is peace-filled. Let's talk about how we can step into that together in this conversation.

In June I was struggling in a 25-year marriage to the father of our four kids. I couldn’t find the strength to make a change that could deeply impact our whole family. I also had a boss who had started marginalizing and demeaning me daily in my already stressful career. Between work and home life I felt like I was getting beaten down 24/7. It was exhausting and it was breaking me. Even thought I have strong spiritual life and great group of Christian friends I needed a cheerleader. I needed confidence. I "randomly" discovered your coaching and it was exactly what I needed. The first episode I listened to was "How to Have Difficult Conversations" and I was hooked. I was able to work with my husband to decide that divorce was the best thing for our whole family. We're in the thick of the process now and your weekly pep talks are getting me through. I love the way you blend faith-based statements with real life relevance. I especially like the way you provide a number of tips or steps to accent your coaching message. For busy women like me I find myself replaying those tips constantly. When I wake up on Tuesdays I’m always more energized - it's Trish Day! I listen to you on my commute into work and it sets the course for the rest of the week. Thank you for cheering me on! You are amazing. BONUS PODCAST EPISODES - EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE FOR OUR PATRONS.

Nothing is that important.” —Natalie Goldberg “Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.” —Charles Spurgeon “Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” —Arthur Somers Roche “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly.” —Anonymous proverb “Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are.” —Theodore Roosevelt “Anxiety’s like a rocking chair.

The Phrase that Confident People Use Most PODCAST #414 There's a powerful phrase that confident people use that will open doors of opportunity, unleash your courage and up-level your resilience. The phrase sounds flippant, and simple, but that's exactly why it's so powerful. In fact, this phrase will help you stay present - not in the past and not in the future - for that is where the power for your confidence is most accessible. Let's dive into the phrase that confident people use the most. In this episode of The Confidence Podcast, we'll be talking about: The Phrase that Confident People Use MostHow to use it for yourself effectivelyInner self-talk to help you take action on anything, face any fear or rejection, and to build resilience REVIEW OF THE WEEK: God-fidence. 5-Stars, by kjenison Trish, your podcast is one that I listen to and immediately feel peace like a good therapy session.

It helps you to…. -move on when you feel uncomfortable -accept rejection and move forward -let go of the past -not obsess about the future or outcome -be okay being radically yourself and not worrying about other people liking you It roots our feet to the present. Confidence thrives when we are radically present. Being present eliminates future self-doubt, overthinking, speculation and stories, some anxiety and fear of the unknown. It also releases control to God and puts us into a place where we trust that He's in control. HOW TO USE THE PHRASE EFFECTIVELY In Business: -I'm supposed to pivot and be creative with new things -Failure is feedback -I'm more proud of my effort than of the outcome -You never know unless you ask In Personal Life: -I'm growing, and am supposed to have hiccups -I release myself from beating myself up -I am okay being different -I'm committed to living my life with my heart all in INNER TALK FOR SELF-COACHING Inner self-talk to help you take action on anything, face any fear or rejection and to build resilience I can face anything, because I am okay with uncomfortable emotions.I will be able to manage and move on from anything unknown ahead.I am not the one "holding it all together" anyways - I trust that God is with me and that whatever is ahead will work out for my good.

A month or so ago my friend watched a guy strut by with a posture and confidence that made her stop and say, "If I had his confidence I could rule the world." And I stopped and thought, "That's an opportunity for me. Why the heck not me?" I strive to be an inspiration and role model to my two young children and to be the person I deserve to be to be myself. This podcast has really opened my eyes and my mind and is helping me become stronger and more confidence everyday. I am so grateful to have stumbled upon your coaching and look forward to growing with you more. Thank you so much and please keep it up! WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FORGIVE YOURSELF? Self-forgiveness is not letting yourself off the hook, or being easy on yourself. It's understanding that unforgiveness doesn't help, and holding onto things hurts your psyche. Guilt is a long-term decision to feel miserable for a long time. And there are deep consequences. You'll be miserable, and you'll attract other miserable people. Difficulty forgiving also leads to heart attacks, high blood pressure and depression. What types of self-destructive behavior can be hard to forgive? Any type that you have wanted to be free from - some examples of which are: over eating, over drinking, binging, compulsive shopping, gambling, scrolling, cutting, compulsive exercising, control, perfectionism, procrastination, smoking, toxic relationship patterns 13 WAYS TO START FORGIVING YOURSELF FOR SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR Take ownership of your mistake. Articulate how you feel. Identify the hurt Understand what you want (peace) Recognize unrealistic expectations Stop living on replay mode Apologize to yourself or your body Put things into perspective Allow God in Replace guilt with gratitude Renew your mind Do a new thing (repent, change behavior, etc.) Rest and trust. Unbelief makes it hard for us to forgive ourselves. -we believe in forgiveness for others -we believe that God forgives in theory -so why can't we forgive ourselves NEXT STEPS IN REBUILDING SELF-TRUST & COMPASSION …while also still maintaining and nurturing positive behavior change.

Sign up for free at www.trishblackwell.com/freeclass REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Heart of Gratitude, kbdaffy, 5 stars The confidence podcast was recommended to me from a friend and since my first listen, I've been all in! Living most of my life convinced I was a victim had me suffocating because of self-criticism, isolation, anxiety and depression. My own mind had been my most limiting factor - I just didn't know how to do anything about it. I wanted to believe I knew God didn't want these thoughts and feelings to rule my life but I had no idea how deeply rooted a lot of my limiting beliefs were. I never would have believed that listening to one podcast episode could impact my life so greatly. I'm now part of the COC and doing coaching sessions with Trish. I can honestly say I have never thought about the power of my own thinking as intentionally as I am now. I've never experienced true peace in God's love until this year. Trish, you are one incredible human and God knows I'm so grateful for you and the work you do. Keep on encouraging and being you! God bless. WHY WE DON'T LIKE OURSELVES -We're stuck in toxic comparison -We think we'll like ourselves when…. (Conditional liking) -We are so stuck on "there" that we don’t live in our "here" -We don’t know ourselves - we are too busy to have a relationship -We still believe toxic words from other people about who we are -We put our identity in what we do, not who we are Not actually liking yourself is a handicap in life. It prevents you from showing up as your real self, as fully alive and as capable to play the role in the world that you were created to play. It positions you with a victim mindset - whoa is me, everything is hard, if only I were different - and it makes us passive to being able to embrace and control what we can. It poisons our mental wellbeing, driving us into more anxiety-driven behaviors, fear, hiding and self-sabotage. HOW TO START LIKING YOURSELF #1: GET TO KNOW YOURSELF BY ASKING GOOD QUESTIONS -Question what you have taken for granted and assumed -Question those around you -Question yourself, take personality tests -Question what God has you on Earth for -Question who you are supposed to help -Question why you reject yourself #2 SPEND TIME WITH YOURSELF -Through journaling

Get your free seat at www.trishblackwell.com/stopcaring REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Just started listening … wow. Emma aaa This podcast is 11/10. She goes above and beyond in each topic she talks about. I take her advice and run with it in everyday life. Success is ALWAYS guaranteed. Love you, love your word, love the show. WHY HAVE WE LOST OUR VOICE? Don't let what someone said steal your destiny from you. It's time to stop aligning yourself with what people have said about you and instead identify yourself by what God says about you. (And He says that you have purpose, you are unique, you are his masterpiece, you are his child, you have specific talent, you are loved, and you are never alone.) Typically, there is a moment in our past that we felt unsafe after using our voice. -you got made fun of; told that there was something wrong with you -you said something awkward -you didn't have parents or role models who built you up -you heard more prohibitory language than affirmative language in your house -you felt overshadowed by another personality you grew up around -you learned that the people around you weren't listening, so you felt like it didn't matter -you spoke up, but an abuser in your life didn't listen Speaking up and using your voice doesn't feel safe. But it is less safe to stay silent and to sulk in the shadows of life. What got me started? I knew I had a moral obligation to start speaking up - through writing first, and then speaking. I felt the pull on my soul and in my desire, but it was too hard to do. I was tremendously uncomfortable and resistant with it - the thought filled me with shame.I saw someone else be brave and it inspired me. (after I spent years hiding the book)I wanted to be someone who did brave things, and I knew how much Roth had helped me, I knew I couldn't with good conscious stay silent and "safe" anymore. Geneen Roth's Book: Breaking Free From Emotional Eating: https://amzn.to/30iX7QW HOW TO HAVE A VOICE AND START USING IT You'll feel the itch. But you'll question your right to itch it. Go on, itch it, it will relieve something deep in your soul. We speak up and use our voice, not just for ourselves, but for those like us who still feel stuck and silenced. Recognize that what you have to say matters. Realize that your voice can help others. Remember that words give life - and bringing yours to the surface births life. Start practicing. Know it will be awkward. You will feel emotionally exposed and hungover.

Fear of not actually being motivated-what if you need the pressure and the inner-bully? lack of self-trust (Laziness!) Fear of not being able to change.-I engaged in this behavior for years because I felt like I was letting God down, and then I felt overlooked by God because He wasn't healing me from my struggle in the way I wanted or expected; I was afraid I was broken and unable to change or be changed.

#409: How To Stop Being Jealous Of Others
How to Stop Being Jealous of Others Podcast #409 Jealousy rots the bones, but it doesn't have to rot yours anymore. This podcast episode dives into how to stop being jealous of others so that you can get on with your own life and thrive where God has planted and placed you.

By LizKU124 Trish and her podcast have changed my life. Her positivity, fresh perspectives, insight, knowledge and experiences have helped me to grow as a person and become less anxious and more confident. She adds in the perfect amount of spiritual content to supplement her teachings, and I know that whenever I start my day with The Confidence Podcast, it's going to be a great day. Thank you Trish for your ongoing encouragement that you share and for helping me to become a better, more confident version of myself! HOW DOES JEALOUSY SHOW UP? Comparison Inadequacy Dieting Relationships Low self-esteem Feelings of insecurity Uncertainty Worth issues Different statements that express jealousy that you might not expect: I just feel behind ... I should be doing more .... They seem to have it all together ... They know what they're doing .... I wish I had it as easy as .... Must be nice ... They're so lucky ... Jealousy turns our eyes outward - and sets our hearts up for a state of constant comparison. Comparison detracts us from being able to be present, engaged and confident. Bottom line: If you want to be confident, you have to ruthlessly eliminate jealousy from your heart HOW TO ELIMINATE JEALOUSY 1. Pay attention to where it pops up in your life. 2. Call it what it is .... don't flower it up. 3. Surrender your heart and pray for cleansing. 4. Guard your thoughts - and parent your phone! 5. Proactively give praise for all that you have and all that you are 6. Understand that you have an isolated narrative 7. Everyone has a story - honor yours and honor theirs 8. Ask yourself, do you want to live with a heart of abundant joy, or of anxious lack? Ultimately, jealousy can be minimized if you follow the tenants of The Confidence Formula -Slow down -Simplify -Strategize JEALOUSY IN RELATIONSHIPS 1. Lack of Trust Problem of communication Problem of transparency Problem of confidence 2. Lack of Teamwork Problem of perspective Problem of communication Problem of collaboration ANNOUNCEMENTS: COLLEGE OF CONFIDENCE CHALLENGEIt's back to school, back to basics ... something we all need.

I have been listening to this podcast for the past two years and I cannot emphasize how much Trish has helped me in my personal growth/mental health/eating disorder recovery journeys. I have done YEARS of therapy and was in inpatient treatment for an eating disorder and I can honestly say this podcast has helped me in probably more ways than those other things. Trish speaks to me in a way that I feel like no one else can relate. Like half of the time I am like, are we like the same person lol. If you haven't listened, you NEED to. This lady knows what she's talking about and can give you PRACTICAL ways to deal with life challenges. I cannot say enough good things about this podcast. Thank you Trish for all that you do. You are making an impact in this world. QUICK BONUS COACHING MOMENT: We're going to go back to the basics here, and we're going to have a conversation around how to get your neurons firing together so that your brain and thoughts get wired in the way we want --- with a powerful, victorious mindset. It starts with a base layer: belief. I believe I can do hard things. Next, up the pyramid ...I will not avoid doing hard things, because I understand that hard things are part of life. Then, the next ascending layer...I am good at doing hard things. Finally... I like to do hard things.

Enroll today at www.collegeofconfidence.com HOW TO APPEAR MORE CONFIDENT THAN YOU ACTUALLY ARE Do people that appear extremely confident really feel that way? Is it an act? Do they ever feel what I feel? You don't have to be the best. You don't have to know what you're doing. You just have to be yourself. You will appear most confident when you are most yourself and most relaxed. How, so, how do you do that? Smile. Reassure yourself. Get to know yourself. Stand comfortably. Have open posture and body language. Do things and take action. How do I do this? As a confidence coach, you might think I have mastered confidence, but I haven't. Confidence is a relationship - a spiritual practice almost - that I will be exploring and expanding my entire life. I aspire to have a thick skin and tender heart. I aspire to be the friendliest person in a room. I aspire to smile more than anyone else I know. I aspire to be consistently, openly and unapologetically myself. I aspire to do the things that scare, intimidate or overwhelm me.
