Stop Holding Yourself Back with Jamie Kern Lima   1:00 You Need to Stop Doing This Today . . .  9:38 Why It's Okay to Be Successful with Jamie Kern Lima 30:56 How Do You Respond to Compliments? Resources Christy's Devotional - Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to YouGet back to you with my brand-new devotional, Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to You. It will help you break through the busyness of life and build the confidence you need to embrace the person you want to be. https://bit.ly/37n26Ds   Christy's 5-Day Confidence BoostSign up for my free 5-Day Confidence Boost. You'll receive five days of encouragement focused on helping you become a more confident you! https://bit.ly/2NzFVmC     Women, I believe, face a specific challenge: We downplay our success out of a sense of shame. I tackle that lie in today's show. I also get to interview Jamie Kern Lima, founder of IT Cosmetics, which is the fastest-growing cosmetic company in the world. She knows a thing or two about success! Finally, we'll wrap with some journaling prompts about celebrating-not shaming-our success.   You Need to Stop Doing This Today . . .  Why is it so hard to accept compliments? I believe it's because we don't know what true humility looks like. The next time someone notices or congratulates you, don't dismiss or downplay it. Say this instead.   Why It's Okay to Be Successful with Jamie Kern Lima Before she started IT Cosmetics, Jamie Kern Lima was saving her tip money from waiting tables at Denny's to buy fancy makeup. But just a few years ago, she sold her company for $1.2 billion! In our interview, Jamie shares the lessons she's learned about hard work, rejection and-ultimately-success.   How Do You Respond to Compliments? "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." - James 1:17 (NIV)   There's nothing we accomplish or enjoy on our own effort. Every single thing-from our relationships to our skills to our opportunities-is a gift from God. That's a humbling (and freeing) truth! Let's unpack it with a few journaling questions: How do you normally respond to compliments? What does humility look like to you? How can you practice being grateful for everything God has done and is doing in your life?

You'll receive five days of encouragement focused on helping you become a more confident you! https://bit.ly/3aOGxNd     Today, we're talking about one of my favorite topics ever: confidence! Also, I'm so excited to share part two of my interview with Matthew McConaughey. He tells some personal stories about how he's built confidence throughout his life. And finally, I'll leave you with a few journal questions that will help you walk boldly into the new things God is doing in your life.   Why You Should Take More Risks Life is full of challenges that feel too big for us. When you're facing something scary, should you wait until you feel confident before acting, or should you just go for it? I'll unpack the answer in today's teaching.   How Matthew McConaughey Built Confidence What's the secret to confidence? It's knowing who you are. And it helps when people in your life remind you when you've forgotten. Matthew McConaughey shares an inspiring (and hilarious) story about how his mom instilled a sense of confidence in him from a young age.   How to Listen to God "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?" - Isaiah 43:18­-19 (NIV)   New things are both exciting and scary. Maybe you find yourself starting a new position at work, entering a new season of life, or launching a new business. Whatever you're experiencing, here are a few journal questions that will help you process what's going on: What new thing do you sense God is doing in your life? What do you sense God is urging you to do about it? What would it look like to just try it?

How to Love Life with Matthew McConaughey   0:49 Why Being Optimistic Is So Important 12:11 Matthew McConaughey's Advice About Life 26:45 What You Should Be Thinking About Right Now Resources Christy's Devotional - Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to YouGet back to you with my brand-new devotional, Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to You. It will help you break through the busyness of life and build the confidence you need to embrace the person you want to be. https://bit.ly/39ou57u   Christy's 5-Day Confidence BoostSign up for my free 5-Day Confidence Boost. You'll receive five days of encouragement focused on helping you become a more confident you! https://bit.ly/2Mq1o0N     Today, we're going to talk about how your perspective on life impacts everything you do. And y'all, I'm so excited to share part one of my interview with actor, producer, and New York Times bestselling author Matthew McConaughey. To wrap up the show, we'll work through a few journal questions that will help us be optimistic and focus on the good things in our lives.   Why Being Optimistic Is So Important Our minds are powerful. And when you change how you think about life, you'll change how you experience it. For today's teaching, we'll talk about a simple truth that will help you take control of your thoughts, be more positive, and see the good in your life.   Matthew McConaughey's Advice About Life I had the opportunity to sit down with Matthew McConaughey: actor, producer and New York Times bestselling author of the new book Greenlights. For decades, he's been acting out the stories of other people. Now, he gets to share his own story-and it's packed with wisdom and humor and life lessons.   What You Should Be Thinking About Right Now "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things." - Philippians 4:8 (NIV)   Optimism is God's idea. No matter your personality style or life circumstances, all of us are commanded by God to think about what is good. And God calls us to be different for a reason: so we can be examples of joy and hope and peace and put Him on display for the world. Let's apply today's truth by working through these journal questions: What are you looking for? What are you thinking about and focusing on? What are some things that are good in your life right now? Make a list of things to be grateful for. What's one thing that you can do today to put optimism into practice?

The Secret to Being Confident with Alli Worthington   0:56 Three Ways to Build Confidence 11:35 Why Being Confident Is So Misunderstood with Alli Worthington 30:28 Where Do You Find Confidence? Resources Christy's Devotional - Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to YouGet back to you with my brand-new devotional, Living True: 40 Days to Get Back to You. It will help you break through the busyness of life and build the confidence you need to embrace the person you want to be. https://bit.ly/3r3HhER   Christy's 5-Day Confidence BoostSign up for my free 5-Day Confidence Boost. You'll receive five days of encouragement focused on helping you become a more confident you! https://bit.ly/2YkAZnQ     Where does confidence come from? Today, we're going to get to the root of it by talking about three areas of life where you can find confidence. I'll also talk to the incredible speaker, coach, author and Bible teacher Alli Worthington about her personal journey with confidence. And as always, we'll wrap up with a few journal questions so we can actually apply these ideas about confidence to our own lives.   3 Ways to Build Confidence In today's teaching, we're going to cut through the lies we're told about confidence. No, it's not something you're born with. And no, it's not something that's dependent on your circumstances. We'll cover three practical things you can know and do that will help you build real, authentic, unshakeable confidence.   Why Being Confident Is So Misunderstood with Alli Worthington Author, speaker and Bible teacher Alli Worthington has an important truth we need to hear: God has great plans for every woman. Every. Single. One. In our interview, Alli and I talk about how we can find the confidence we need to overcome adversity and face our future with boldness.   Where Do You Find Confidence? "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." - Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)   According to the Bible, faith equals confidence. As Christians, we might shy away from confidence, thinking that it means we're self-centered. But God calls us to have confidence, not in ourselves, but in Him-His character and His ways. Spend a few moments journaling about the truths we're covering in this video: How do you feel about the word confidence? What feelings or beliefs do you have around the idea of confidence? How can you lean on your faith to build confidence? How can you practice courage this week? What's an area of your life where you're willing to practice a skill over and over again to build confidence?
