From Fear to Freedom: Embracing Courage and Power

"Use your fear... it can take you to the place where you store your courage." - Amelia Earhart.

This powerful quote shared by my dear friend Angela resonated deeply with me, prompting a reflection on my own journey of conquering fears and finding the courage to create freedom.

In this blog post, I want to share my personal experience with overcoming the fear of public speaking and how it transformed into a source of empowerment. My hope is to inspire you to confront your own fears and recognize the tremendous opportunities that lie beyond them.


The Journey of Conquering Fear

Public speaking is a fear that many of us can relate to, and it has been a significant challenge in my life as well. Twelve years ago, I made a decision to change fear into power. I realized that if I wanted to make a difference, I needed to face this fear head-on. It wasn't an easy path, with moments of self-doubt, negative self-talk, and sweaty hands. But I persevered, pushing through the discomfort...

The Power of Transformation: A Journey from Struggle to Empowerment - Meet Carolee

community & support Jun 30, 2023

I want to share an incredible story of transformation. Meet Carolee, a remarkable individual I've had the pleasure of knowing for years.

Two years ago, she joined my coaching program, embarking on a fitness journey together. We dove into group accountability calls, focusing on strength-building and weight loss.

During the program, I invited Carolee to join our seven-day healthy cleanse, which she successfully completed multiple times.

Her weight loss journey was already underway, and she was feeling the growing confidence within herself.


A few months ago, Carolee approached me with a heartfelt request. She wanted to join forces and become a Wellness Ambassador, inspired by the tools I offer through Shaklee

As my birthday approached in June, I desired to go on a mission trip to support children—a cause dear to my heart. In an unexpected turn of events, I received a message in May that I had earned a trip from Shaklee. It turned out to be a mission trip to...

Hero's Journey - Meet Karyn

community & support Jun 02, 2023

Karyn and I had a completion of the Weight Loss Intensive private session earlier, and I thought it would be helpful to record a quick interview to share your experience.


Nadya: Let's jump right into the first question. Before you started the program, what was your main struggle or challenge?

Karyn: My main struggle was that I had been gaining weight over the past 5 to 10 years, partly due to some health issues and also just with age. I had tried various things in the past, but I couldn't stay consistent with anything. I had the knowledge of what I should do, but I struggled with follow-through. I had lots of knowledge but no action.


Nadya: Thank you for sharing that. So, what made you decide to join the program and how has it been working for you so far?

Karyn: I reflected on what I needed and how I could be more intentional and accountable. I realized that having a personal coach who could keep me accountable and help me set goals was important. My sister,...

How to Feel Energized and Motivated

Wouldn't It be nice to be energetic and positive most of the time? Wouldn't it be good to wake up in the morning feeling positive?

Instead, we hit the snooze button, maybe thinking about the daunting day ahead of us.

We do this day after day, week after week, month after month, and the years go by. We feel worthless and lacking. We blame ourselves and give up. 


Yet we do want a better, happier life and healthier stronger body.  


So here is our choice: we either keep hitting the snooze button and wishing the day away OR we get up and activate! It's simply our choice. 

So once again, I want to reflect on my personal experience.  When I wake up in the morning on  most days, don’t ask me questions,  don’t talk to me, don’t try to engage me in anything.  I don't wanna talk. I don't wanna smile, I think. I don't wanna be active.  I just want quiet. 


And yet you do know me as a bundle of energy,...

Hero's Journey - Meet Susan

community & support Feb 05, 2023


"My mood and intention to make healthy choices have changed a great deal…

I choose happiness."


I want to share Susan’s story with you.


Before we met each other,

Susan was having trouble with a lot of pain. She had bad migraines. Susan says: They're pretty much daily and I was really feeling beaten down. I was very depressed and wasn't able to work much. I would eat anything quick and easy, mainly fast-food delivery.


In October 2022, Susan heard me speak at an online meeting. We met one-on-one to get to know each other. Susan was ready to change her health and her mindset. 

She joined the Transformation Club, subscription service for $35 a month, the most basic self-paced level. She needed something inexpensive to get started with. 


Here is how she utilized her Club subscription

First, Susan used the Club program to guide her to adopt healthier choices one step at a time. 

Second, she joined our monthly...

A Hero's Journey

community & support Sep 18, 2022

I wanted to take you on an actual client journey, a short story of how I take my clients from being overwhelmed, in pain, intimidated about stepping into their strength, power, and confidence. 

Once upon a time, I had a client named Mary.

She was a creative entrepreneur. We had known each other for for about three years. Once she mentioned wanting to talk about weight loss. And it took her (with my reminders) almost a year to finally make an appointment. 

She felt intimidated.

She felt like a failure.

She wanted to lose weight and feel better.


So we sat down for a conversation. There was a history to unpack. From abusive childhood experiences to an authoritative ex-husband and a mother who disapproved of her choices. She had accumulated a lot of guilt and lost her confidence. 


I could hear her pain and despair. It was an authentic voice. I heard her sincerely asking for help and to have a chance to express who she really was. 


For the outside...

How to make accountability fun


Life can be either a fun adventure or a miserable experience. 

Accountability is a part of life. Therefore, we can treat it as either adventure with fun or experience with misery.  It's really up to us.


When I first talk to my potential clients, I often hear how dreadful accountability is for them; though, they know that's exactly what they need to help stick to the journey and be consistent. 

So, 1 do we make accountability not so dreadful and miserable? How do we make it as something we look forward to vs running away?


Before we jump in, do you know what you need an accountability for? What are your goals? What daily actions you want to commit to be accountable to?


The answer is MAKE IT  FUN!!! 

Our critter (survival) brain is like a little child (your inner child). It doesn't like boredom or none pleasant experience. It wants to have fun and play


So ask your inner kid, what would make this experience fun?

Feeling stuck?

In this message, I will share with you what to do when you feel stuck. 


Where do you feel stuck? In health?  In weight loss? In a vicious cycle of pain? In negative thoughts? In life?

In fact, I have been feeling stuck thinking what to write for this Sunday reflection and this theme felt quite appropriate. 


So if you are feeling stuck, let's try these steps.


Step 1. Identify where you are stuck. 

Use curiosity.  In fact, in our Masterclass we used the term Curiosity Goggles. Just be curious and simply observe to yourself without judgement using this format: "isn't it interesting that I feel stuck ….(name it). What I really want is …. (name it)."

Stand back and be curious about this "stuck" state. Reflect on what are you doing, thinking and feeling. It's important to identify all three.


Step 2. Acknowledge

and be ok with what's so. No blame, no shame, no right or wrong. It is just what's so. We often want to blame...

How to Break the Cycle of Pain

Hi {{ first_name }},

In this message, we'll talk about types of pain, the causes of pain, and five steps to breaking the pain cycle.

Do you know someone who is in pain? Maybe it is you.

Have you found that when we experience pain, it's really hard to say Yes to many things such as exercising, being active with your grandchildren, and even eating healthier?


We do want to be stronger, feel less inflamed, have more energy, and just simply feel better. We have all positive intentions of doing good but pain cuts into all our good efforts. 

How do we handle pain? Precisely, how do we break the vicious cycle of pain?

If you or you know someone who is experiencing pain, please keep reading. This message may be just the life and happiness saver they need!

The most important foundational step to breaking the cycle of discomfort is to tune into your body and to have two-way communication.
