    REVIEW OF THE WEEK

     





    I listen to this podcast every morning while I get ready for work. It really sets the tone for the rest of my day and makes me feel unstoppable! Trish has inspired me with so much, most recently being my eBook I published on Amazon, The Legend of Ollie Daniels. 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.

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:







    StrengthSeeker, 5 stars







    Trish - I truly feel that God led me to discover your podcast and your virtual friendship! 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.

    THE PHRASE CONFIDENT PEOPLE USE MOST







    "Well, anyways…"







    As one of the most powerful statements help you move forward and just keep going. 







    What does it help? 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

    REVIEW OF THE WEEK:









    Best confidence podcast. Hands down.







    Skrwzvh, 5 stars.







    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

    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 ...

Love this Podcast!!

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 up others with you.

Hello!

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 .

Confidence After Abandonment

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 obsessivley 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!!
