THE MINIMIZATION OF YOUR  GIFT FROM GOD IS A DIRECT INSULT TO YOUR CREATOR

In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we’re chatting about:
  • Why you’re not average and how I can be confident saying that about you without possibly even knowing you
  • Tackle the feeling of “Why do I suck at everything” and how it’s false
  • What happens when we call ourselves being average or downplay ourselves
  • 3 Practical ways to resist the overwhelm and ache of being average
 
 
 
 

REVIEW OF THE WEEK:

By lillianglanton, “This podcast will change your life.” Five Stars.
 
I love this podcast so much .Trish gives me so much encouragement and confidence in myself every single day. I am so thankful that she shares her story with the world! Trish continues to show up every single week with pieces of wisdom that will change your life. I’m a young entrepreneur and songwriter (19) and I’m starting my own business in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. I have created my own songwriters festival, which is set for October 25-26, 2019 and I’m in the process of renting a commercial property building where songwriters can go to create music. Trish gives me confidence in myself to go for my dreams and never give up. Listen to her words and implement them in your life! I am so thankful for you, Trish.
 
 
 
 

 

SPONSORSHIP NOTE:

A LOT of beauty brands out there tout retinol as a safe ingredient, but we know better. Studies have shown that retinoic acid can have health-harming side effects which is why this ingredient is restricted in the European Union and Canada + its on our “Never List” at Beautycounter.r

——
After 2+ years of formulating, Beautycounter has cracked the code to deliver retinol-like results without retinol’s safety concerns
——

STATISTICS PROVE IT

The danger of “average” feelings is that they cause us to downplay our true selves, our gifting from God and our unique position to matter in this world.

Your Chance of Being Born: 1 in 400 Quadrillion to 10 to the 2,640,000th power. You may think “You say that to everyone!” We were not born by accident given the odds calculated by scientists showing the odds of you being born are at least 1 in 400 trillion IF NOT 1 in 400 quadrillions and most likely 1 in 102,640,000

So you’re chances of “I suck at everything” isn’t true, because the statistics will show that you have talents to share.
 

NEVER A TIME LIKE THIS

7.7 billion people in this world … don’t you dare tell yourself that there aren’t enough people who need you!

Literally, nothing is impossible if you want to connect with others or inspire others.
Resist the temptation to buy into scarcity thinking or to get distracted by competition or by comparing yourself to others. Resist the thought “Why do I suck at everything” and instead focus on the things that friends and family look to you for.

“AVERAGE” DOESN’T ACTUALLY EXIST 

Experiences, perception, creativity, genetics, body type, preferences, relationships, hobbies, upbringing, education, emotional intelligence, curiosities, senses, tastes, vision, personality, communication habits, humor, goals, and intuition.

So it would be impossible for you to suck at everything.
 
Fingerprints are the tiny ridges, whorls and valley patterns on the tip of each finger. … There’s a one in 64 billion chance that your fingerprint will match up exactly with someone else’s. Fingerprints are even more unique than DNA, the genetic material in each of our cells.

Epigenetics:

the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself.

PRACTICAL WAYS TO RESIST THE OVERWHELM OF AVERAGENESS

I feel a deep internal ache – sometimes it feels like a calling and sometimes it feels like I’m facing a giant. When I feel this emotional overwhelm, I activate The Confidence Formula.
 
  • Simplify
  • Slow down
  • Strategize
 
For the first two elements, it’s pretty obvious what to do. But strategize? In this scenario, the strategy that gives me peace, presence and clarity can include: reading, gratitude, prayer, seeking wisdom, making time for journaling, I also intentionally focus on power words, power phrases or a power purpose, like “my job is to be a vessel of love.” It simplifies my responsibility – I am the vessel – God is love.
 
 ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Finally, I have opened up an extra day of private coaching slots, and have expanded my coaching slots to take on two new clients. If you have been moved to tears or your life has been changed by listening to this show, then you have no idea what is in store for you when you work with me one-on-one. It’s okay to be nervous to meet with me, come on, you know me by now and you can be confident that I will make you feel right at home.  My clients typically work with 2x/month, meeting via virtual video, and each session includes “action items,” or homework to be working on in between when we meet again so that you have customized and personalized support to really accelerate you to a new level of confidence. I work with clients for personal growth, for professional growth, for entrepreneurial growth, for faith growth and for everything else in between – you name it, if it needs confidence infused, my coaching will work for you in that area of your life.  To find out more and to inquire as to whether or not working with me privately is a good fit for you, email me at trish@trishblackwell.com.
 

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE

Lauren from IG

 

Trish my goodness! I just got finished listening to episode 80 of The Confidence Podcast on how to emerge from a funk (I know I’m years rebind LOL Started from the beginning) but I wanted to say WOW. That podcast brought me to tears. I felt the need to reach out because I feel as though you are always pushing your listeners and followers to go out and be their very best, but I needed to tell you WOW am I proud of YOU. How far you have come in your life has inspired me and amazed me. It truly made my heart feel warm to know that you found grace within yourself at what you thought was rock bottom. But it truly seems like it was the beginning of a miraculous story. God has blessed you in more ways than one. How blessed everyone is to know not only you are but also your husband, children, and loved ones, but my gosh your listeners. You truly are a light to this world and I’m glad you found that because my God you have made al the difference in this world with your beautiful soul!
