How to Be Confident in Uncertainty and with the Unknown Ahead

Life is filled with uncertainty and tons of unknowns, so learning how to stay confident in unpredictability is key to living with unshakeable confidence. Get a sneak peek into a chapter of my newest book, Straighten Your Crown, and how I have learned to embrace the unpredictability of life with an adventurous, open and light spirit, and how you can too.


In this episode of The Confidence Podcast, I’m giving you a sneak peak like I’ve never done before.

  • You’ll hear one of my favorite chapters of my newest book Straighten Your Crown: Rediscovering that You are Seen, You Matter, and the King Delights in You
  • My favorite thoughts that I go to when finding myself in a place of uncertainty
  • The affirmations I use when I feel overwhelmed with the unknown or life that feels out of my control



Chapter 6: Discovering Delight in the Unknown




Anointed, refreshing! 5-Stars -boisanadarapsan

I recently heard Trish read one of her one star reviews in which someone said that the podcast was “basic” and that Trish was not a psychologist so maybe she should not be teaching on these things. I could not disagree more. I am a marriage and family therapist, and even though I am a professional in the mental health field, I can tell you for a fact that Trish has amazingly FRESH insightful ways of presenting information that will change your life. It’s not so much about education…don’t get me wrong, it’s important, sure – but I can tell you from being in the field in a formal capacity that the most likely predictor of someone actually changing/growing is the connection they have with the therapist, not how “trained” they are.

So when I relate that to Trish, the relationship we listeners have with her as a podcaster has so much to do with her God-given anointing in the way that she teaches and her God-given **amazing personality!!!** Some of the most influential and best teachers of all time had no formal training. When God anoints you, that is what matters!!! “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.!” If God’s hand is on you nothing is going to stop you and his hand is clearly on Trish. I adore your personality Trish, I am a faithful listener, you are so amazing and I learn from you all the time! Keep up the amazing calling God has put on your life. You are a blessing to so many, myself included! We love you. God bless you.

  1. I am powerful in the present and in the present I can create certainty.
  2. The way I show up now, in the present, gives me power and an inner advantage in the future.
  3. I choose peace right now, a gift to both myself and to my future self.
  4. I don’t need to know everything or control anything, I just need to do what I can do with what I have.
  5. I don’t know what will happen but I know I will find the good in it.



  1. Everything will work out how it is supposed to, and I will be fine.
  2. I embrace this adventure ahead of me with curiosity and openness.
  3. I release control because I know that God is in control
  4. I am thankful for things bigger than me because they invite me into trusting God when it matters the most, and He is trustworthy and faithful.
  5. I choose to be a person who exudes gratitude and joy in all circumstances, the good, the bad and the unknowable.

The foundation for self-worth

How to have more self-confidence



Wednesday, September 15th at 6PM EST.

That pressure you wake up with? It’s the same one that sang you to sleep last night.

It’s the voice that you’re not doing enough.

You’re behind.

You’ve got to do better.

You’re not liked enough.

Be more disciplined. More organized. More decisive.

And it’s exhausting.

It leaves you on empty.

You don’t have to keep going through your day on fumes.

You don’t have to keep pressuring yourself to do more.

You don’t have to keep feeling overwhelmed by your inbox.

You don’t have to keep overthinking your job and worrying that you aren’t good enough.

I want to teach you a better way to feel.

I want to teach you how to trust that people like you and that being you is enough.

And it all starts with changing how you think about yourself, and what you think that people think about you.

Join me for FREE for a LIVE MASTERCLASS this coming week, on September 15th.

I’ll be coaching you on HOW TO BE MORE LIKED.

And it’s going to be good.

This is for-real LIVE, so make sure you set aside time to make it.

Hey Trish!

I just found your podcast and I’m loving it! Currently I’m a young woman in a male dominated company and I’m intentionally working on my confidence in the workplace. I am often compliments on my confidence from others around me however I don’t feel that inside and I’ve committed to feeling that for myself! Thank you for helping me on my journey and I’m going to keep listening to you (I got some catching up to do!) Thanks for being you, Trish!
