155 - Are you ready for inner transformation
They say, “Curiosity killed the cat.” It makes sense at first glance because most people fear the uncertain and the unknown. And so they end up living their whole lives wanting to be somewhere but are actually stuck in limbo. What about you? Does your current life fulfill you? Are you ready for your inner transformation?
Nadia introduces us to a woman named Jasmine, whose life revolves around her family. Although she’s physically well and lives in a beautiful home, Jasmine feels disconnected, especially from her husband. She wonders if that’s all there is to it.
Her “happy-me” moments are when she walks to the park to sip her coffee, leaving behind the thought of cooking or cleaning. Sitting and breathing fresh air allows for some needed time to think and reflect about her life.
In this episode, Nadia narrates a compelling tale about Jasmine’s curiosity, her willingness to act on it, and her courage to choose her own path. Nadia brings us into a world of struggle, growth, and change. It’s a story about you.
Apparently, curiosity didn’t kill the cat. In its complete and unabridged version, “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.”
Nadia is telling us that no change is easy. No growth is ever comfortable. But if nothing ever changed, there’d be no such things as butterflies.
154 - How to unlock your core values' magic?
Nowadays, it's rare for people to get lost in malls, airports, or theme parks because there are directions or roadmaps available. But what about when we lose our way in life? When we feel lost, who do we ask? Who do we turn to when everything seems so uncertain? This is why Nadia shares with us the magic behind knowing your core values.
According to Nadia, knowing your core values helps you know yourself even better. It makes you aware of your strengths, weaknesses, limitations and can help you discern what you want of life. As the great philosopher, Socrates said: "To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom."
Financially speaking, being aligned with your core values helps you become wiser and mindful about your business ventures and investments. Personally, your core values serve as a moral compass within you to guide you through deceptive paths and protect you from manipulative people.
Life will always be full of hurdles and challenges, but Nadia shows how core values also serve as an ultimate inspiration to keep you going. Like an eternal flame within that can never be put out, no matter how tough the situation may get.
Overall, Nadia continues to inspire us in this episode by sharing the magic behind knowing your core values, how to unlock it, and how it plays a significant role in your life, success, and happiness.
153 - Do you dare revealing your true self?
Many suggest to be ourselves, but why so few dare? Most of us still live in fear of what others would think or say. Every day we hide behind our social masks to fit in and be accepted by society. In this episode, Nadia illustrates how courage plays a huge role in conquering your fear. The courage to stand out of the norm and assert yourself, unbothered, and untouched by others’ opinion of you.
Nadia encourages you to trust the process, for it takes time. But when you finally dare to reveal yourself and let go of every pretense, you become lighter in heart and soul. In doing so, it gives you the key to unlocking the door to your happiness.
Remember, no matter what is going on in your life, you have the power to be yourself. The challenge is the willingness to act on it.
No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. And there’s no greater freedom than being the master of your own life.
Finally, Nadia reminds us that to live an extraordinary life, you must first choose and decide to live your life extraordinarily.
152 - Why Don't New Year Resolution Stick?
Most of us can easily set goals and New Year resolutions, but what makes it so hard to achieve them? It appears that wishing for goals is easier than done. Why is that?
In this episode, Nadia not only warns us of the pitfalls that will distract us from achieving our goals but also goes deeper in explaining the driven energy behind high achievers. Nadia illustrates thoroughly how to convert your passion and enthusiasm into a powerful energy source that is vital for your goal’s achievement and success.
The first step is to align your goals with your core values; otherwise, it will be easy to quit at the first sign of defeat. When your goals align with your life’s purpose, it’s no longer a goal. You are taking a stance. When you reach that place in your mind, your goal becomes non-negotiable and defeat is not an option.
This state of mind is crucial at first because without realizing it, your new passion will most likely trigger some discomfort in your environment, and they may attempt to stop you from your dream. Nadia reminds you that no one else controls your life but you. Thus, you are your only limit.
The next challenge is to find the right balance between passion, enthusiasm, and warrior energy. Warrior energy is great, at first, to help you create new habits. However, it’s your passion and enthusiasm that will sustain you in the long run and help you turn hard and laborious tasks into a blissful and rewarding journey.
151- How to be at peace with what is?
COVID-19 pandemic struck a major blow on our lifestyle and careers. Even Holiday celebrations are not exempted from its devastating effects. It may seem frustrating, but Nadia shares that it may just be the perfect moment for us to recalibrate and reassess our lives.
In this episode, you are invited to take a step back, breathe, and reflect about what you can control. Nadia believes that you can control the way you respond to what’s happening.
True enough, no one can control mother nature but you can control your state of mind. Nadia reminds us that you can’t change the situation, but you can change your mind’s perception of it. That’s where your power resides and where peace begins.
Overall, you can’t account for everything, but you can surely make every moment count. Peace may not cost money, yet is worth everything. And it may just be the best present you can give to yourself this holiday season.
150 - Is There Such Thing as a Magic Pill
Have you ever dreamt of finding the “magic pill” that would guarantee success and happiness?
What if this magic pill already exists? In this episode, Nadia unravels the secret to finding your “magic” that may solve your problems.
The first step is to change your perception. We are never too old to start something new. The second step is to train your mind to see roadblocks and unfavorable events as an avenue for growth and learning. You focus on the lesson to be gained, not the disappointment.
Nobody likes to make mistakes, which is often the reason why we fear doing something new. However, the very key to finding your magic is a leap of faith. Go for it. Take that risk. After all, the greater the risk, the greater the reward, especially when something is worth pursuing.
Liberate yourself from the expectations your parents or school, or society has set upon you.
Society has taught us to believe that we are flawed when, in reality, we are perfect in our own creation. What appears to be imperfection is our uniqueness. No two humans are the same. However, we all have something in common: the ability to overcome any adversity by shifting our thoughts. After all, mistakes are simply experiments that lead to wisdom.
There is no shortcut to success. However, a journey well lived is the one that leads you to believe that your magic is worth sharing with the world.
