53: How to Show Up in the World with Confidence–Even When You Don’t Have Confidence // Brooke White

Musician Brooke White teaches three lessons on how to show up in the world with confidence (even if you are scared)

If you have a dream, big or small, that’s been tugging on your heart–or if you’ve allowed your fears to get in the way of you showing up fully in the world–this episode is for YOU.

Brooke White is a musician and a mother of two. She has recorded eight albums with a ninth coming out in early 2019. Brooke got her “big break” when she appeared in season 7 of American Idol and finished in the Top 5. In the midst of this success, when the world saw a beautiful young woman with talent and fame, Brooke faced debilitating anxiety and fears that she wasn’t good enough.

In our conversation today, we discuss…

  • how Brooke faced harsh criticism in a very public review in a LA music magazine (she reads it aloud on this episode!)
  • how Brooke made a big mistake in front of 40 million viewers on American Idol
  • how Brooke survived those moments, and many others that have come before and after, and has continued to pursue music with a self-confidence rooted in love, faith, and gratitude

In this episode, Brooke and I laugh, we tell stories, and yes, we sing. Well, Brooke does. 😉 You don’t want to miss this truly unique and inspiring episode of 3 in 30.
