    HOW TO ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT

    PODCAST #393

    Asking for what you want is a confidence skill that can transform every element of your life. Learning how to ask for what you want can be a key tool. The more you practice this 4-step process, you more proficient you will be at asking. Most people don't know how to ask for what they want because they don't know what they want and because they don't feel capable or courageous enough to ask. In this podcast episode you'll learn the framework you need to start feeling confident enough to courageously start asking for what you really want in life.

    How to figure out what you actually want anyways

    4 steps to start asking for what you want



    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:

    Perfect balance of faith + self-help

    by LeahRKole



    For those of us with inner demons that try to sabotage our potential, Trish is the voice and guide that cuts through all the lies and recenters you in truth. Thank you, Trish, for your unique perspective in all areas of confidence, success, sports + fitness, female leadership, and living the vibrant abundant life we were all made for. I have so appreciated your vulnerability and your confidence - especially in speaking about faith and the hope of heaven. It's hard to find speakers and coaches who walk the tightrope between self-help and Christian faith and you do that so incredibly well! If you need a pick-me-up or a life-makeover, Trish is your gal!







    If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission!



    The first step to getting what you want is to have the courage to get rid of what you don't. -Zig Ziglar



    Go for it now, the future is promised to no one. -Wayne Dyer



    I'm a big believer that life changes as much as you want it to. -Martin Freeman



    Not getting what you want either means you don't want it enough, or you've been dealing too long with the price you have to pay. -Rudyard Kipling



    The most effective way to do it, is to do it. -Amelia Earhart



    You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You have to go out there and make it happen for yourself! -Diana Ross



    The world needs dreams and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do! -Sarah Ban Breathnach



    The great secret of getting what you want from life is to know what you want and to believe you can have it. -Norman Vincent Peale



    You only get in life what you have the courage to ask for.



    We don't get what we deserve.

    We get what we design.



    Confidence is at the root of being able to get what you want in life, in your relationships, in your career, and in your opportunities.

    WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING FOR TO HAPPEN?

    Are you waiting for permission?

    Are you waiting to be called out?

    Are you waiting to be ready?

    Are you waiting for someone to tell you you're enough?

    Are you waiting for the right time?

    Are you waiting for "other reasons?"



    Other reasons ...

    -I'm not supposed to ask

    -Who I to think

    -Why would they discount that for me

    -Does that opportunity even exist

    -What if they think I'm pushy

    -Will I come off arrogant or ungrateful



    Maybe you want to ask for a raise, an opportunity, for a chance, for a mentor, for a discount, for help, for support, for chocolate milk for breakfast ... you will only get it if you dare to ask for it.



    Maybe it feels too hard, or you feel lazy, or you've convinced yourself that your "woe-is-me" storyline is just too strong...whatever it might be, you are only ensuring that nothing happens.

    BEING CONFIDENT EVEN THOUGH YOU AREN'T YET WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

    PODCAST #392

    If you value progress more than perfection, then it's possible to feel confident and capable, even if you don't yet feel like you "deserve" to. Confidence has no finish line or destination. It is a muscle that we work and strengthen through how we choose to think about who we are and where we are at as we progress along the journey of life.

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



    The questions about being confident that I am most often asked

    How to really, really believe that you can do something and feel confident, even if you aren't "there" yet

    The 3-steps to progressing towards anything you want with more confidence





    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:

    Just the best podcast ever - 5 stars



    by Liv'in'progress



    A long-overdue review here, I just wanted to express how grateful I am for Trish and her amazing energy, positivity, and ability to be inspiring every day. I sincerely look forward to my commute so that I can learn from Trish and get guidance for those tricky issues in life. Every time I listen, I immediately feel as though I'm entering into a "me time" moment that I don't want to be interrupted and I become centered and inspired to be a better version of myself. I frequently rewind over and over to re-listen to a little phrase that hit hard for me - there are so many. Trish feels like the friend that I wish I had, someone who will actually call me out in an effective yet nonjudgmental way. I just listened to an episode where she suggested that certain things or behaviors in life you have to realize that you've outgrown. This was a little reality slap that I needed today. I also really love the faith-based episodes. As someone who grew up with parents always bickering about their interpretation of the Bible, I really align with your insights on faith. Thank you, Trish, for showing up for us all - your love and goodwill is overwhelmingly evident. Much love.





    Questions I am often asked:



    How can I feel confident if I am not even close to where I want to be?

    How can I stay confident if I keep having these setbacks?

    How can I act confident if I know I don't have the experience that I wish I had?

    How can I remain confident if I fail visibly or embarrass myself?

    How can I walk confidently if I've gained the weight back or if my business regresses or must pivot?

    How can I be confident if I feel keep beating myself up or feel like I'm behind or making the same mistakes over and over again?



    Ultimately, we are asking:



    How do I have confidence in progression, not perfection?



    We must change what soul ties we make.



    We must pay attention to the agreements we make with our beliefs.



    We must decide that since our thinking can change that we also can change.

    CONFIDENT ANTICIPATION





    Mindset of optimism





    -Looking at what could go right, not wrong



    -Seeing your commitment, not the inevitable challenges



    -Believing there will be joy and adventure along the way





    Eagerness to learn





    -Freedom from the belief that you need to know it all



    -Release from the pressure to execute perfectly





    Grounding in gratitude





    -Gratitude is your propeller



    -Gratitude journaling, flash gratitude



    -Perspective flexibility

    CONFIDENT PROGRESSION





    Simple steps and slowing down





    -Forward is a pace



    -Champagne moments and micro-milestones



    -Resist the rush (why are you rushing anyways?)

    Why joy and peace will make you more confident



    REVIEW OF THE WEEEK:

    Time well spent! 5 stars, by Ashtyn C



    This review is long overdue. Trish is an amazing source of light and encouragement! She gives practical advice and incredible insight. As an avid reader myself (and forever the knowledge seeker), I appreciate the work she puts into her content. This has been a podcast staple for me for several years now. Listening to her podcast is always time well spent! Highly recommend!





    WHY JOY & PEACE WILL MAKE YOU MORE CONFIDENT:

    Joy is sustained, deep happiness; radiance, if you will. It takes something beautiful and makes it magnetic.



    Peace is confidence. It is security, safety, presence, and an absence of anxiety, strife, turmoil, pressure, or anything that is typically related to insecurity or self-criticism.



    The core issue of most confidence challenges is a lack of peace. I struggled with confidence because I didn't have peace in who I was, in my body weight, in my place in the world, in whether or not I was loved and belonged, etc.



    You will live in peace and joy.

    The mountains and hills will burst into song and the trees of the field will clap their hands.

    Isaiah 55:12

    37 WAYS TO GET MORE JOY AND PEACE IN YOUR LIFE

    Joy and peace are the opposite of how I would have described my life prior to my work in confidence coaching. They are not adjectives I would have ever chosen to describe myself.



    I didn't have joy - I was focused and self-critical.

    I didn't have peace - I was always pushing myself harder.

    I didn't have joy - I wasn't sure how to be myself, or if I was allowed to be.

    I didn't have peace - I felt like I was behind.

    I didn't have joy - I thought life was supposed to be super serious.

    I didn't have peace - I worried that God was disappointed in me and He felt far from m.

    I didn't have joy - I was stuck in addiction and numbing, and didn't have full access to full emotions

    I didn't have peace - I didn't know how to accept love and be present

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK: 







    An encouraging listen - 5 stars! 







    by Allimandy







    I have been listening to this for a couple of months now. I can feel the difference in my mood shift when I listen to an episode. I love to listen on walks and feel encouraged after listening. I like that she is vulnerable enough to put herself out there and she challenges you to do the sam.e I would like to be a part of the College of Confidence one day! Than you for showing up Trish. I am encouraged to show up in my life every day. 















    OTHER PEOPLE'S OPINIONS 







    God never told you to impress other people, just to love them. So love them. 







    You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do!







    – Olin Miller







    No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.







    – Eleanor Roosevelt 







    here is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.







    – Aristotle







    Other People's Opinions







    There will always be conflicting opinions.There will always be an option for you: let them matter or don't.







    Opinions change as often as the wind.







    Opinions are not relevant - and they're fickle. 







    Opinions should never keep us chained or bonded from life.







    What have you let other people's opinions take from you or keep you from?







    For me...caring too much made me...







    -get into wrong relationships







    -say things I didn't want to say







    -do things I didn't want to do







    -spend money I didn't have







    -put off writing my first book for a few years







    -almost didn't launch my podcast or business

    BEING CONFIDENT WHEN LIFE IS FILLED WITH UNKNOWNS

    PODCAST #389

    It is possible to have confidence even when the future is unknown. Finding peace and confidence when life is filled with so much unknown, especially when life feels tumultuous, is the cornerstone of being able to have joy in all circumstances. In this podcast episode, we're talking about how to have confidence and peace when the unknowns of life feel too big and also how to release your need to know about what is to come in the future.



    Comparative suffering and ambiguous grief - the unknown vortex we are in

    Can you really live with confidence and peace if life really is all unknown?

    How to release your need to know





    ANNOUNCING: NEW FREE WEBINAR!!!!

    Have you ever wondered if you could write a book? Or maybe you're daydreaming about being a successful entrepreneur? Maybe you've got an idea for a charity stirring inside you or possibly a desire to share your art - whether it is your canvas, your words, your music or your voice - with the world?



    I want you to know that whatever is stirring in your heart is stirring for a reason. I believe it was breathed into you by God and that when you show up and go all-in on where you're feeling led, that you will light the world up in your own important way.



    You don't have to keep wondering if your dream is possible. You don't have to keep making excuses about why you're not "ready" to start. You don't have to believe the critics or the comparison that is holding you back.



    You just need to learn how to believe in yourself - to really believe in yourself. I want to teach you the mindset behind how the most confident and most successful people think. You can think that way too, and when you do, you'll take that dream on your heart, and you'll start to actually do it.

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:

    I love this podcast!!! [5 Stars]



    by Deemoflowers



    It's been a great topic and good encouragement. Thanks for sharing your ideas!



    LET'S THINK ABOUT ALL UNKNOWNS THOUGH:

    Relationships, finances, the economy, health, whether or not people like you, what kinds of things your kids are interested in, the outcome of projects you pour yourself into.



    COVID-19



    Death toll counts.



    Desensitization.



    Isolation.



    Guilt over happiness.



    Desperation for life to resume.



    Speculations - divisions, and unity.

    ULTIMATELY ... 

    It's a giant unknown in the world.



    If you want some positive perspective and haven't yet listened to the podcasts I have already don't specifically on how to stay confident and filled with peace during COVID-19, here are the direct links:



    #381 - How to be positive during the coronavirus pandemic (not panicked)

    #382: Psychological immunity and perspective shifts for a pandemic

    #383: How to stay nice when you feel stressed

    #385: Staying motivated when you are sad or scared



    I have found peace and release by learning how to let go of the outcome and become more interested in the process.



    For example, I just poured my last six weeks - every free waking minute of them - to the creation of my newest program, The Dream & Do Project. I have big goals for how many people's dreams I want this program to launch and awaken (and how many I know it can help) ---- but ultimately I can't make you or anyone click the register button. I can do all the marketing and promotion that I know how to do and that the industry recommends, but ultimately,

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK: 

    This is exactly what you need in your life! 5 Stars.



    I had been looking for an encouraging podcast to listen to while I run and this one is beyond perfect. I've listened every day for the past few weeks in hopes to increase my confidence. Not only has it helped me in my journey of growing confidence but it has also improved my overall happiness and relationship with God. It had made me realize that I'm not alone in my personal growth journey and thata God is with me every step of the way. He continues to heal my eyes so I can see my true beauty, which I have struggled with in the past, and guides me to love myself and others as much as He does. Trish is the perfect person to spend time with everyday to focus on myself and growth. She's such a positive light in this world and a true gift from God.





    LIFE IS SHORT: LEAN INTO THAT DREAM ON YOUR HEART

    Life is precious. Thank you to my dear friend Amy for deepening my love for life.



    Amy was relentlessly humble, private, and positive.



    Cancer took her life after years of battling.



    Amy, I pay you honor and tribute today. You will not be forgotten.



    Amy, you have impacted my heart. I will live with an intimate understanding that life is short. I will not be afraid of what people think of me. I will not worry about being cheesy or too nice and I will reach out and love with every opportunity I get. I will stay centered, positive, and present the way you so valiantly demonstrated as I had the privilege of watching you live out your last painful, yet incredibly beautiful years. I will save the photos we have and the videos of the kids jumping in puddles in the pouring rain and the lazy afternoons we spent just intertwining hours of non-descript life-moments together. Those moments matter and I love them. I love you and I thank you for reminding me of the hope we have in Heaven. I will see you again soon dear friend in that beautiful place with Jesus where every tear is wiped away. 

    CAN YOU REALLY DO ANYTHING?

    “To achieve the impossible, you must attempt the absurd”

    ― Jon R. Michaelsen



    A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.



    -Albert Einstein 



    You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.



    -Aristotle



    We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough.



    -Helen Keller 



    If you're not making mistakes you're not doing anything.
