I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell
QUOTES ON JOURNALING AND WRITING DOWN:
Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up into your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter. And lead pencil markings endure longer than memory. -Jack London
A journal is an ideal environment in which to “become.” It is a perfect place for you to think, feel, discover, expand, remember, and dream. -Brad Wilcox
Write what should not be forgotten. -Isabelle Allende
The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe. -David Hare
It gives us deep spiritual insight into the meaning and purpose of our lives.
It is a voyage to our interior.
It is a tangible expression of the breathings of our heart.
THE JOURNALING PROCESS:
There’s no right or wrong way to journal – but there are many options:

The essence of this 7-day Quick Confidence Boost is to reset your thinking and the power of your own self-actualization by giving you the tools and steps you need, in just three minutes per day to choose confidence. Confidence is a choice, and with the Quick Confidence Boost, you’ll learn that there are seven layers to that choice and to making it more automated for yourself so that you start living life without self-doubt, any nagging insecurities and with full surety in having the freedom to be yourself.
Over a period of seven days, you will receive one email per day from me. Each email will have a quick, three minute video with three summary points and two questions-of-the-day for you to use in your own reflections, meditations, journaling or prayer. Make it a priority to watch the videos – even when it doesn’t feel like it, you always have three minutes in your day, and part of prioritizing your own personal growth is a subconscious message you are sending to yourself that you do have more choice and control in life that you previously thought. You run your day, you run your thoughts, you run your confidence – you can do this!
I’m excited to get started with you – and, if for any reason, you have issues receiving any of the videos, don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know immediately by emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am here to serve you as your confidence coach because I know that, equipped with confidence, and a confidence boost of this nature, you can do anything in life and that you will be unstoppable as you courageous pursue contributing to this world in a way that matters!

Choose to be courageous

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
Trish- I made a career change this year at the age of 43. I have struggled with self confidence & self doubt for 20 plus years. My new boss is always talking about podcasts. So after downloading a lot & getting more discouraged because I was not getting anything from these I found your Squashing Self Doubt episode 194 today; I was in tears & saying amen throughout your podcast today. I too am a perfectionist & a strong Christian. All this to say thank you! I can’t wait to listen to more of your podcasts. I am tired of fighting this battle & have decided this is the year to try & overcome.
