Being confident when life is unknown is definitely achievable, even during this pandemic.

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]
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. Being confident when life is unknown can feel impossible. Especially during this time. And there seems to be a never-ending list.
Death toll counts.
Guilt over happiness.
Desperation for life to resume.
Speculations – divisions, and unity.
It’s a giant unknown in the world. And it can feel like confident when life is unknown is not possible. But with focus, it is more than attainable.
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. This process helps to be confident when life is unknown.
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, I cannot make someone take my program.
Therefore, I find my confidence and pride in the power and passion-infused into the program — and the knowledge that when someone knows it’s right for them, that then it will be life-changing for them.
BUT, REALLY, THE SECRET TO CONFIDENCE IN UNKNOWN IS HOW TO TAP INTO PEACE.
Peace, beyond circumstances, comes from:
- Knowing that you belong.
- Believing that you can walk in peace and joy
- Letting go of our need to know
- Refining our mental capacity to stay in the present
You will live in joy and peace.
The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands!
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
CAN YOU REALLY LIVE WITH CONFIDENCE AND PEACE WHEN LIFE IS FILLED WITH UNKNOWNS?
You get there when you can learn to confidently and cooly release your need to know.
We don’t need to know everything.
It’s a matter of deciding for yourself who is in charge.
If it’s you – then, my theory doesn’t work.
If it’s God – then, my theory rings true.
HOW TO RELEASE YOUR NEED TO KNOW:
It’s a daily decision.
Daily surrender and fight against self-reliance.
For me, in order to find against the temptation for self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and counterfeit control, I have to remind myself of how life looked like and felt when I tried it out that way. I have to remind myself that that didn’t work – and that I don’t want to repeat a broken pattern.
It’s a decision of mental awareness – and a daily perspective check:
- Am I fighting for control?
- Am I self-focused or faith-focused?
- Am I knowingly trying to control that which I know I can’t?
- Am I finding deep and faithful gratitude for where I am and what I do have?
Dream & Do Project is now live and available for enrollment for a short time only. We are closing the doors on May 15th, so if you have a dream, it’s time to do it.
You have a choice to make a difference or not.
One of the most tragic realities in the world is that most of the world thinks that their contribution to the world won’t matter enough, so they don’t show up for it.
Your dream – your book, your blog, your business, your art, your voice, your ideas, your brightness – matter. The world needs you to go all in. God created you with potential and passion to unleash.
It’s your choice to believe it.
So, are you going to choose to make a difference in the world?
If your answer is yes, and you want to really master the mindset of self-confidence and self-believe that you need to take your dream and make it happen, then look no further than my newest program, the Dream & Do Project.

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:

hi Trish! I just listened to your approval addiction podcast, and have never heard anything that I related to more. I feel like I have been so stuck in insecurity my entire life with no way out. Everything I do is for the approval of others and I don’t feel good about myself unless others do. the only time I have a little bit of confidence is when I get a compliment or when I’m in a relationship with someone who I think it is good to be liked by. I don’t know how to get out of this. I wrote down all the steps that you said in your podcast but I don’t know how to actually apply those to my life and how to have it actually make some changes. I am a Christian and I see a Christian therapist, and she always tells me that the only approval I need is God’s and I fully believe that but for some reason knowing that doesn’t change me paying attention to the approval of others, and doesn’t make me feel any better. I’m sure you get a ton of messages a day and so I totally understand if you can’t respond to this – I thought I would give it a shot!
