    REVIEW OF THE WEEK



    DECIDE THAT LIFE IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, NOT TO YOU.

    Slight shift changes everything."Get to" versus "Have to"

    MAKE SPACE TO FEEL YOUR FEELINGS ON PURPOSE

    Don't pretend they aren't happening - or that your life is easy. Acknowledge the suck.Have an intentional pity party - or intentional sulking session - and then tell yourself that it's time to move on. 

    GRATITUDE ABOVE ALL THINGS.

    No matter what, be someone who can always find gratitude. 

    REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM

    Identify as victorious. Double down on your strengths.Look at the bigger story.Don't get sucked into the vacuum of overwhelm.De-dramatize the awfulness. Feed the story you want to grow. 

    GET CURIOUS

    Podcast #531

     

    BEATING BURNOUT AND RECOVERING FROM BURNOUT











    Are you an ambitious, driven high achiever? Do you strive for the most challenging goals and take on the heaviest burdens to achieve success? If so, chances are that you’re familiar with burnout. As hardworking people sometimes we go too far – overloading ourselves with tasks until our performance deteriorates or even collapses altogether. But it doesn’t have to be like this – there are strategies and techniques you can use to fend off burnout before it overwhelms you. In this podcast episode, I’ll share some easy-to-apply advice on how to beat burnout as a high achiever.



    In this episode of The Confidence Podcast, we're chatting about:





    * The root of your burnout - and what to do about it

    * 3 antidotes to burnout that you can apply immediately

    * How to shift and reframe your perspective

    * 15 things you can do right away to decrease burnout

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:







    THE CORE OF THE BURNOUT PROBLEM



    Exhaustion / Cynicism / Inefficiency Mismanaged Emotions Hustle PressureFlawed Prioritizations Overattachment to External Worth / External Validation 



    The Antidote:PRIORITIZE SELF CARESHIFT YOUR PERSPECTIVE REDUCE STRESS IN YOUR LIFE

     Change your 24 hours and you will change your life. -Eric Thomas



    SHIFT AND REFRAME YOUR PERSPECTIVE



    Decide on the emotion you want to fuel your day.Decide ahead of time on anchoring thoughts to guide your day.Decide who you want to be in your life that day.Decide to slow down and work on your thoughts.

     What does "work your thoughts" mean?



    * Identify the thought that's causing you emotional burnout/frustration/cynicism or the dullness of inefficiency. 

    * Get curious about why you're thinking the thought

    * Ask yourself what a better (but believable) thought could replace the other thought.

    * Write out an additional powerful thought to support the new thought shift. 





    15 OTHER ACTION STEPS YOU CAN TAKE



    1. Get plenty of rest

    When you're burned out, your body is telling you that it needs a break. Make sure to get plenty of sleep every night, and try to take a nap during the day if possible. Your body will thank you for it.

     2. Eat healthy

    Eating unhealthy foods will only make you feel worse. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. And don't forget to drink plenty of water!

     3. Exercise / Get Enough Exercise 

    Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and improve your overall health. Even just a brisk walk around the block can make a big difference.

    4. Take breaks during the day

    Working non-stop is a surefire way to burn out quickly. Make sure to take a few minutes each hour to take a break and relax. Step away from your work, close your eyes, and take some deep breaths.

    5. Avoid multitasking

    Trying to do too many things at once will only make you more stressed and less productive. When you're feeling overwhelmed, focus on one task at a time and give it your full attention.

    6. Simplify your life

    If your life feels like it's constantly in chaos, it's time to simplify things. Get rid of anything that's not absolutely essential, and learn to say "no" more often. You'll feel much better for it in the long run. 

    7. Find a hobby / do more things you enjoy

    Podcast #529

     

    PLAYING SMALL? HOW TO LIVE UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL











    In this episode of The Confidence Podcast, we're chatting about:



    * Why we play small and the thoughts that are holding up back

    * How to know if you are playing small or limiting yourself 

    * Power thoughts that will equip you with the courage to live a bigger life



    There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. - Nelson Mandela 

    Your playing small does not serve the world.

    Do not be afraid to shine, or afraid of your power - for it is God-given and God-purposed. Show up for it and it will be God-blessed.

    “Your fears, worries, and false beliefs do not keep you safe. They keep you small.” 

    ― Anthon St. Maarten

    Our Deepest Fear





    By Marianne Williamson







    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness. That most frighten us. We ask ourselves: Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.





    REVIEW OF THE WEEK



    WHY DO WE PLAY SMALL





    It feels saferIt's normal It prevents us from being seenIt protects us from potential negative emotionsWe also think that it will be too hard for us to go/maintain the next level (re: the narrative of "If I'm struggling with this right now, how will I ever manage to maintain _______).We discredit the maturity/capacity/growth / experiential knowledge of our future selves. Or possibly, you're afraid of being too powerful.Of making other people feel bad.Of being too successful.Of having too many expectations then placed on you.You believe the flawed narrative that it's easier to play small - but what you don't realize is that by playing small you are making life harder - because your heart will forever be unsettled and unfulfilled when you are not pursuing your purpose. 





    WHAT WE MISS OUT ON 





    We miss out on the full spectrum of the human experienceWe miss out on our own growthWe miss out on making the difference we are meant to makeWe miss out on the life of our dreamsWe miss out on the deep fulfillment of contributionWe miss out on income.We miss out on opportunities.We miss out on experiences.We miss out on fulfillment.





    HOW TO KNOW IF YOU'RE PLAYING SMALL (AND WHAT TO DO) 

    You probably are. We all are.Ask yourself:Am I holding back anywhere?Am I fully investing in growing my strengths?Do I value boldness, creation and contribution?Do I know that my voice matters?Where can I think bigger?Where have I avoided growth?How do I want to be remembered?How am I using my money to do good in the world?Who's opinions am I afraid of?Who's approval am I seekingBut to what extent is what to explore. What to do:Take action.Stay convicted.Guard your mind.Master your mindset.Show up.Steward your talents. Be brave.

    POWER THOUGHTS TO EQUIP YOU WITH COURAGE TO LIVE A BIGGER LIFE



    I am a world-changer and difference-maker.

    * My voice matters.

    * I will live my life with boldness and brightness.

Impactful

Trish,

Thank you for identifying the needs of so many people and doing something extraordinary about it. I found this podcast because I was looking specifically for something to help me break the cycle of self-doubt that I had as a professor and writer. I am now a full-time fiction writer who hasn’t yet made a cent. Whenever I have a bad day of discouragement, I know I can turn to this podcast for a pep talk as well as actionable steps I can take to stay motivated and hopeful.

This is a valuable podcast for anyone who faces discouragement or wants to pursue their goals with confidence (so literally anyone).

Thank you, Trish, for being a voice of encouragement.

Been listening and it’s life-changing

Hi Trish,

I’m a college student who has struggled with my confidence and self-esteem my whole life. The impact you have had on my confidence is absolutely incredible. I love how articulate you are, and your positivity always reinvigorates me. I can feel you helping me achieve the dreams I have that sometimes seem so far away. I feel that for the first time in my life I am developing healthy habits that lead to my self awareness and consistency. This growth has made me feel so much more confident.
Also, I never experienced a life coach that connects themselves with God like you do, and even though I am of a different faith (I’m Muslim), I always love how I can relate to your beliefs and religious values.

Because of this, I make it a priority to either watch a College of Confidence video or listen to your podcast daily. And funny enough, to prove what an avid listener and supporter I am of you, I listened to your podcasts for a good portion of my entire 8 hour drive from Michigan home to Virginia— because I just can’t get enough! 😂

Sorry for the long message 😅, Love ya Trish!

Maryam

Life-changing

All-time favorite episode: 195, changing your set points—I’ve probably listened to it more than five times. This podcast has changed my life. Every episode is packed full of encouragement and feels so relevant to my life. Trish’s vulnerability and Christian perspective makes this show the best podcast on confidence I’ve ever listened to.
