They say the truth will set you free, but the path to freedom isn’t always easy; in fact, it can be quite the opposite. 

That’s why, when you come up against truths that refuse to be swallowed, creating your own truth is often the best way forward. 

Whether that truth comes from biblical quotes, life experiences, or a well-worn personal mantra, a particularly powerful string of words can often make even the most difficult situations manageable – that, and a strong foundation of challenges faced and positive outcomes achieved. 

If you have challenges to face and positive outcomes to achieve, Tricia Fishburne is the leading lady you’ll want to know. 

After experiencing sexual assault at a young age, Tricia learned a few hard lessons about hitting rock bottom and beginning the long journey back to “normal” – lessons that so many other female victims have also had to learn. 

It’s not all doom and gloom, though – through that journey, Tricia also came to understand the importance of being in flow, accepting the nonlinear nature of recovery, and learning to sit with negative emotions in a compassionate way. 

These are all foundational lessons – and as a certified mindset coach and hypnotherapist, Tricia is uniquely qualified to share them with you.  

In this episode, she shares some powerful truths about rising above negative experiences, finding self-worth and following your passion. 

So what’s this episode really about? 

  • The real (and often non-linear) journey back from rock bottom 
  • Coping with the aftermath of sexual assault 
  • The life-affirming power of the words “I am”  
  • Risking everything to prioritize your mental health and happiness 
  • How your ability to succeed in any field comes back to self-worth 

Why you should listen

Sometimes, in order to burn at your brightest, you have to work through dark spots – and it’s at those turning points that a strong foundation is most important. In the words of Tricia Fishburne herself, once you know your worth, you can really achieve anything in life, and this episode will inspire you to do just that.

You can quote me on that…

My biggest goal is to achieve more by doing less. Yes, yes. Which sounds so counterintuitive, you know, and it’s been really uncomfortable, like a part of me, when I sit and kind of follow the flow of my business. It’s like that part of me is activated. And I’m like, wait a minute, okay, I have to do more, I have to do something. Right. So it’s like building that habit of allowing myself to just follow those like intuitive, right lunches, follow the flow. And what I’m noticing is that when I have my biggest successes in business, it’s when I’m so in the flow, nice, like when I don’t even try, right? – Tricia 

“I just know from speaking to women, day in and day out, [that] there’s always a million people that are listening and saying, I’ve been through that. It was her sharing her story that made me feel comfortable coming out about the story or [helped] me get up from the bathroom floor or stopped me from committing suicide.” – Hannah Austin
