    REVIEW OF THE WEEK: 







    Highly recommend!!!! 5 Stars v.AlissaI've listened to various podcasts and Ted talks about confidence and mental strength but this is by far the best! Trish's words are encouraging, motivating, and comforting, and if you practice what she teaches you'll realize how real they are. I have become my most confident, authentic self since discovering this podcast and I can't wait to continue my mental healthy journey with Trish as my guide. Keep it up Trish, you are a God send! 







     

    SECOND GUESSING YOURSELF + MIND DRAMA

     





    Mind drama: it will always happen, but you don’t always have to get sucked into it.  Second Guessing:Happens when we don't trust ourselves.Happens when we experience the phenomenon of mind drama  What is mind drama:Ping-pong conversations with yourself.The knot of thoughts that you unravel only to find knotted again.Needing to reset your thoughts over and over Mind drama is normal:Managing your mind is part of living a highly effective lifeYou aren't failing if you need to reset and realign your thoughtsIt's normal to need to set your mindWe'll always have resistance pushing in on us  Why We Second-Guess Ourselves in the First Place:We think the mind drama means we're out of controlWe're too attached to old identities (like we don't follow through)We have thorns of perfectionism still clinging to us (the desire for all circumstances to be just right) We care too much what people think

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.  HOW TO REALLY KEEP YOUR RESOLUTIONS THIS YEARFocus on tiny habits.Really know why you want to change.Believe that change is possible.Get ready to embrace boredom.Think of yourself as your future self-concept.Put a line in the sand for who you used to be with follow through.Get a coach.Surround yourself with other committed people.Take responsibility for your results and happiness.Get serious about how you think.Use powerful affirmations.Speak life over yousrself  Bonus Resources for Affirmations:YouTube Video: https://youtu.be/HdFAdZh6NckPodcast Episode: https://www.trishblackwell.com/423-2/Downloadable PDF and MP3: https://trishblackwell.lpages.co/christian-meditations/ We have a new course soon releasing the College of Confidence on how to customize and curate powerful affirmations on your own.

    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.

    What "They" Say About Me?







    First off, who is "they"?







    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?

    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 n...

    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. Imposter syndrome consumes you with self-doubt, overthinking and feelings of being unqualified. 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, how to win against imposter syndrome, 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. Why caring too much what people think is what is making you feel so insecure and struggle with all of the overthinking you're doing about impostor syndrome3 simple things I do win against impostor syndrome that really work

    Invaluable Tool for your Toolbox







    EMJEssentials







    I'd heard about the podcast for a year years but it wasn't until a few weeks ago when I made time to listen. Wow- blown away! Trish almost always addresses the very things I’m wrestling with and uses the words and concepts that have made changes in my thoughts. I took time to join the College of Confidence and have been encouraged in my personal struggles and professional challenges by Trish and that community. We all need a toolbox to get through this life - this podcast is that really awesome multi-tool that addresses so many problems we contend with privately and publicly. Thanks, Trish for sharing your gifts!
