189 - The Secret Sauce to Achieving Success in Business and Life No Matter What
In this episode of Assertive Radiance, show host Nadia Fleury embarks on a journey to uncover the secret to success in business and life, driven by a profound question sparked by a conversation with her friend Ana. Ana's frustration with Nadia's unwavering determination sets the stage for an exploration into the common challenges people face on their journey to success.Nadia dives into the roots of these struggles, reflecting on the evolution of business culture from the 20th century's ego-driven leaders to the 21st century's awareness of suppressed emotions and the consequences of prioritizing perfection over well-being. She shares her personal journey, which led to a transformative encounter with a man named Phil and a divine intervention that changed the course of her life.This transformative episode explores the profound realization that emerged over years of self-discovery, emphasizing the vital role of emotions and authenticity in finding success. Join Nadia on this journey to understanding how embracing vulnerability can be the key to unlocking a thriving business and life.Here are the key ingredients for gaining better clarity, a crucial step towards achieving success in both business and life:Ingredient #1: Embrace Vulnerability and Authenticity Over the Superwoman Archetype Nadia emphasizes the importance of embracing vulnerability and authenticity, encouraging individuals to move away from the 'Superwoman' archetype. She shares a personal anecdote about her own emotional disconnection, likening it to trying to get hot water without a kettle base. Nadia highlights the adverse effects of bottling up emotions, which not only affect one's state of mind but also impact those around them. Additionally, she explains the distinction between power and genuine empowerment.Ingredient #2: The Role of Emotions Nadia delves into the significance of emotions as the driving force behind our actions. She explains that when emotions are infused with a profound desire to benefit both oneself and the world, they become the spark that ignites actions, providing the energy and determination necessary to achieve goals.Ingredient #3: Conquering Fear and Facing Challenges for Growth Nadia motivates listeners to step outside their comfort zones, confront their fears, and embrace challenges with the willingness to try new things. She likens this process to trying on a new pair of pants – if they don't fit, you keep trying until you find the right pair. The law of averages comes into play, with each attempt increasing the chances of achieving one's heart's desire.Ingredient #4: Finding a Solid Inner Anchor This ingredient emphasizes the importance of finding a solid anchor within oneself. Drawing from her personal journey, Nadia highlights the significance of listening to intuition and shifting focus away from external influences that may not align with one's true desires. She shares her childhood experience of witnessing Nadia Comăneci's success at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, providing insight into how unwavering determination can transform vulnerability into inner strength, enabling individuals to overcome adversity.Ingredient #5: The Power of Critical Thinking Nadia spotlights the role of critical thinking in safeguarding one's mind. She emphasizes that critical thinking is a skill that cannot be bought, borrowed, or stolen. It plays a pivotal role in breaking free from codependency, overcoming addiction, and making healthy transformations. Ultimately, mastering critical thinking empowers individuals to become unwavering forces for good in their lives, for their loved ones, and for the world at large.

183 - What's a False Belief?
Fifteen years ago, in a moment of inspiration, I thought, what if I could create a world-class skincare brand from the ground up? The idea germinated for a while. Then 11 years ago, I left the corporate world, rolled up my sleeves, and gave birth to Avesence skincare without realizing all the struggle it would lead me into. At the time, I assumed I would be financially successful very quickly, but God had other plans for me. To get HIS message, I had to undo many false beliefs and learn to appreciate each and every step of the journey. The whole experience led me to discover many life secrets, which I'm sharing with you, with the hope that it will inspire you to live your life to the fullest. Hello and welcome to Assertive Radiance. I am your host, Nadia Fleury. And today's episode: "What's a false belief?"Thank you so much for tuning in. I so appreciate that you are here today. We are going to talk about what is a false belief and why it matters in the first place. The reason why it's important to know about your false belief is because, well, life is full of turbulence. You can never predict what's going to happen next. The better equipped you are, meaning more aware, the less affected you will be. And so this show today will explain what a false belief is and why it's important for you to know or to notice the problem that it will cause around you. And third, I'm going to also share how to overcome it. A false belief is something that is not true but that you believe it is.Most of the time, we swim in it so much that we don't even realize we are in it, just like a fish. If you try to explain the fish that is swimming in water, it will not understand what you're talking about. For him, it's normal. The point of this talk is not to eradicate every false belief there is on this planet that would take me the rest of my life without achieving anything constructive.The idea is to bring awareness in your life to see how it affects you because, at the end of the day, we only have so much amount of hours in a day and so much amount of energy. And the whole concept of false belief. What it does is when you don't realize that it's in your programming, it can weigh you down.And that is the reason why I'm bringing this up, because if you don't have a false belief that is bothering you, then you can soar, you can fly high, you can do your thing. You don't feel like you're always distracted with something. And false belief starts when either I pick up an idea and assume that it's true or someone feeds me information.In this case, it happened years ago when the time when I was married, my mother-in-law, who is from the UK, shared her contempt for Indian men who walk ten feet in front of their wives. And when she told me that story, she was really not happy because, as far as she was concerned, she felt that Indian men were not respecting women.But that was her belief, not mine. However, at the time that she mentioned it to me, I knew nothing of this whole world of belief. So, the story was somewhere embedded in my mind, and I completely forgot about it. Then a few months ago, I was waiting at a red light and while I was waiting in my car for the first time, I witness what she was talking about.There was an Indian man, perhaps in his late seventies, walking with a stick ten feet in front of his wife. The man looked frail; almost unsafe for him to walk alone. I thought that if he had been more considerate towards his wife, she could have been there by his side for support. But too bad for him that he chose this cultural habit over his well-being.Notice here how my mind went into judgment, which was contempt for the habit because it's how I received the information while I was unconscious. Then the red light changed into green. And I drove away. But I brought negative thoughts with me. I kept wondering why Indian men behave like that? And suddenly, I felt a...

182 - A New Beginning
Fifteen years ago, in a moment of inspiration, I thought: "What if I could create a world-class skincare brand from the ground up." The idea germinated for a while. Then, eleven years ago, I left the corporate world, rolled up my sleeves, and gave birth to Avesence without realizing all the struggle it would lead me into.At the time, I assumed I would be financially successful very quickly, but God had other plans for me. To get HIS message, I had to undo many false beliefs and learn to appreciate each and every step of the journey. The whole experience led me to discover many life secrets, which is what I'm going to share with you. __________________Today, since the show is about "a new beginning," I want to reintroduce myself. I know I've previously mentioned that I'm an entrepreneur; I created a skincare brand, I'm a mother, and I was married for 19 years and then divorced. But what if I removed all these labels? What if I'm no longer a mother, a friend, a sister, an ex-wife, a podcaster? Who am I, then?My aha moment came when I contracted Covid last August. For as long as I can remember, I was always on the go, doing something. I either work, read, think, cook, walk, garden, or clean. For eight days, Covid obliged me to be still—as I had no energy to get up. Finding myself without energy helped me realize how much our energy matters. On the fifth day, I couldn't sleep because my body was aching from being too long in bed. As I tossed and turned, I started to think of all the people who were severely sick with Covid and were hospitalized for months. Then I thought about the people who didn't make it.Then my mind shifted toward all the people who struggle with an illness and are not sure if they will fully recover. Then I thought of Steve Jobs. From an American society's perspective, Jobs was admired by many and was labeled as a successful, wealthy innovator. But how did he feel the last few months, lying in a hospital bed, knowing his time was almost up? He could have all the wealth in the world, but he couldn't delegate his sickness to anyone. Did any of his labels matter at that point? Then I fell into some kind of twilight zone, and something profound arose from within. I started to see the labels I had identified myself with. As I detached myself from them, I could feel the dept of consciousness tickling my soul. But this was just the beginning. At one point, I saw myself half inside a huge bubble and the other outside. The part that was outside felt free, but the part that was inside was scared.The best way I can explain this is by sharing this story.Imagine when we are born; we are pure love and light, which is our consciousness. Then as we grow up, we are told stuff. Some words or events are encouraging and kind, others hurtful. And as a defense mechanism, the mind finds ways to cope with unpleasant lessons by putting a little strip of plaster and bandages around the soul. We gradually mummify our souls to a point where we no longer see who we truly are. We see ourselves through society's labels and roles.For example, when we visit a doctor, a person will be labeled as a physician while I'm labeled "the patient" because I have to wait a long time. Society dictates that we must be OK with that.I realized that when our being is wrapped around in labels, we turn into zombie-like humans. We function on autopilot and will do and behave according to the mind programming dictated by our environment.A mummified soul cannot see the light and will feel disconnected from Source, leading to a lack of clarity. When we can't see, what do we do? We tread carefully. We play safe. After many years of doing the same things, we lose touch with our intuitions. Every discomfort, stress, anxiety, worry, and body pain indicate something is wrong, and we need to coast correct. But the mind and the...
