“I realized that the biggest learning of all was not how to invest it. This knowledge exists. We know the knowledge. It starts with how you think about money in your head and all these limiting beliefs. I had to get rid of those limiting beliefs, especially that one: when you make more money, you spend more money so you always live paycheck to paycheck. So, I had to see abundance differently. I had to change my mindset about money.” (03:14) (Nathalie)
“The unconscious mind can handle 2.3 million pieces of information every second. Five to nine, for the logical mind, but 2.3 million for the unconscious mind. That is where the power is and that is what you want to tap into. And I call this your ‘personal assistant.’” (11:41) (Nathalie)
“In your prefrontal cortex all emotions are created equally. Your brain doesn’t know the difference between anxiety or excitement. So if you choose it’s anxiety, you will pollute yourself with 1,400 chemicals - cortisol that is gonna slow you down. Or you can choose that it’s excitement or curiosity. If you go into excitement or curiosity, your brain will send feel-good chemicals through your bloodstream and make you very resourceful to face whatever it is that you’re facing.” (27:38) (Nathalie)
“You’ve heard of affirmations. A lot of people do affirmations. The problem is affirmations don’t work if you don’t believe them. And, very often, there’s way too much of a disconnect between the reality and the affirmation.” (30:11) (Nathalie)
“And that’s what I do. I remove people’s triggers so that you don’t have to respond to an event, or a comment, or a behavior in that specific way.” (44:55) (Nathalie)
