Question Your Negative Thoughts – Ora Nadrich

“Your thoughts need to be your cheering squad not your hecklers.” ~ Ora Nadrich 

The moments of our lives are opportunities to learn something valuable about ourselves, although we often take them for granted and waste them on negative, unproductive thoughts. Our guest today offers us another solution, specifically via the medium of mindfulness.

Ora Nadrich is founder and president of the Institute for Transformational Thinking and author of Live True: A Mindfulness Guide to Authenticity. A certified life coach and mindfulness teacher, she specializes in transformational thinking, self-discovery, and mentoring new coaches as they develop their careers.
