Meet Ora Nadrich of The IFTT (Institute For Transformational Thinking)

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ora Nadrich.

Ora, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I began my career as an actress and screenwriter. Due to a personal family crisis, which you can read about in my first book, Says Who?, I went on an extensive psycho-spiritual journey, and decided that I wanted to devote my time to understanding the workings of the mind, and pursue a career in the area of mental health.

I became a Life Coach and Mindfulness Meditation teacher. It was during that time I wrote Says Who?, and created the Says Who? Method for transforming negative and fear-based thoughts. I formed The IFTT, which is an educational organization geared towards teaching the Says Who? Method and Mindfulness to people in all areas of life and professions, including young adults and students in school.

Through The IFTT, I created an online Thought Coach Certification Training Program with fifty-three graduates so far from all over the world. My recent book, Live True: A Mindfulness Guide to Authenticity was just released.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The metaphor I use for life is that it is like an ocean. Sometimes the waters are rough and choppy, and other times the sea is calm. I would say that my road has been both.

There were obstacles and challenges along the way, and, as I mentioned, one of the major struggles I faced was with the family crisis I went through, which caused me anxiety, and interfered with me pursuing my career as an actress.

I think that these obstacles and challenges I faced along the way are what prompted me to go into the wellness field, which I feel is my true calling.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The IFTT (Institute For Transformational Thinking) story. Tell us more about the business.
The IFTT (Institute For Transformational Thinking) is an educational organization that specializes in raising awareness about mental health through Mindfulness, and thought transformation. What this means essentially is that by heightening our awareness of the thoughts we hold in our mind, we can consciously change them from negative to positive, which develops healthy thinking habits that can alter our lives for the better.

My specialty is thought transformation through the use of Mindfulness, and my Says Who? Method, which is a questioning process for changing negative and fear-based thoughts. I am most proud of creating an organization that offers a Thought Coach Certification Training Program that can mentor coaches all over the world to implement The Says Who? Method for helping people change their lives by changing their thoughts.

I think what sets me apart from others is that my Says Who? Method is unique and original, as is my Release and Replace technique, which has helped thousands of people live a much happier and healthier life by changing their negative thinking habits.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I like the quote about luck that says; “Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation.” I feel that I work hard at what I do, and try and prepare myself to face whatever challenges or obstacles I may encounter.

When things turn out well, it can feel lucky, and I certainly have felt that way at times, but overall I would say that when you commit to living in the present, and practice Mindfulness, you find that there is more of a flow in your life, which can feel like good fortune.

When I formed The IFTT, I felt that opportunity really did meet preparation, as the quote says about good luck.
