Amazing. 5-Stars. Syd-pink

I’ve been listening to this podcast everyday for about a month now and it has already helped me grow so much. I started listening to Trish when I really took a look at my life and realized that I lacked the confidence and security within myself that I needed and wanted so badly. I will continue to make this podcast a part of my daily routine and I’m excited for the incredible journey that I am on. 



Take life so others take life

Prenez vie, prenez vie, que les os prennent vie Prenez vie, prenez vie, que les os prennent vie Éveillez-vous

À Sa lumière 

Prenez vie, prenez vie 

Je vais chanter aux os secs Jusqu’à ce qu’ils vivent à nouveau Et que les vallées fleurissent Comme une rose au soleil 

Come alive, come alive, come alive dry bones

Come alive, come alive, come alive dry bones

Awake, arise

Inhale the light

Come alive, come alive

I’m gonna sing to you dry bones

Until you’re covered in life

And the valleys bloom

Like a rosebud in the light

  • Happiness is a thought, not a feeling.
  • It is free from circumstances – it starts with a decision.
  • I choose to be happy.
  • I am responsible for my happiness.
  • No one else can make me happy.



  • Take responsibility for your thoughts.
  • Know that your happiness is not connected to your circumstances.
  • Do things that create beauty in your life.
  • Create an atmosphere of gratitude and flexible perspective.
  • Have purpose, know who you are and what you want 
  • Be okay with some mind drama
  • Expect good things to happen and trust God
  • Look for the good in all things
  • Live a simple life – reduced input, reduced gossip, reduced worry
  • Surround yourself with good people

What’s the goal of the challenge?

We have two goals. #1: To build your consistency and self-trust and #2: To double your confidence. The challenge will show you just how much can change when you show up daily for yourself and you train your confidence intentionally.

To get in on the Challenge just enroll in the College of Confidence at www.collegeofconfidence.com


Thoughts To Journal:

  • What does coming alive look like in your life?
  • If you were to put a number on how alive you are, where do you fall?
  • Identify what is keeping your light dim – is it fear, it is caring what people think, is it unwillingness to step into the unknown, it is sabotage out of resistance that life really can be beautiful (so a belief system)? 



Want more results, and ready to stop talking about and start doing something about it. You need some skin in the game. If you’re ready to invest in your future – go to my new coaching page, www.trishblackwell.com/coaching and fill out a form for a free clarity call. 

I have the space to take on 2 new clients, and this is by invitation only, so you have to be focused and completely committed to creating change in your life. 



I’ve been a listener of The Confidence Podcast for about a year now, and you have no idea how much your words have positively impacted my self esteem. I always look forward to Tuesdays when I get to hear the radiant message you get to share with the world. As a graduate student, I easily let my self-worth depend on my work or school-related accomplishments, and your podcast has helped me realize that I am worthy because of WHO I am, regardless of WHAT I do. I am working on my self confidence every day, and building my sense of self piece by piece. Thank you for all that you do! You are such a light in my life.
