Susanne Grant — Short Advice From The Best In The World

I crafted a list of 10 life’s philosophical questions that I wanted to answers for myself. I could easily answer the questions based on my thinking. I thought—what would it look like if I ask the same set of questions to the best in the world from the different domain—so that I can learn from them—what they do, how they think on the same questions, and much more! I started this with a little experiment and soon—I got 50+ people to say yes to send their responses. Now, I take the pleasure of sharing the expert’s information with you so that we all can learn and grow from each other.

If you’d like to learn more about what I am reading, new documentaries, what I am learning new, recent podcast updates, things I am experimenting with, or anything —which I share extensively in my weekly short and sweet “Friday Newsletter”. No spam ever! I hate that too!

Susanne Grant is an Award-winning Work-Life Balance Integration Expert and Intuitive Business Coach & Consultant and International Bestselling Author of the book Leaders: Women Who Change The World Through Their Business. She supports Busy Business Owners and CEOs to scale their business by becoming an authority in their field without putting in more hours.

After being diagnosed with Complex PTSD at 17 and a burnout at 25, Susanne knew it was time for a drastic change. Even though she was told she was beyond help, she found a way to recover from the “unrecoverable” in the years to come. Understanding the importance of (mental) health and the impact it has on your daily life, performance and intimate relationships has given her great insights which she is now honored to give back to her clients.

Nishant: You have interacted with many successful people over the years – what have you
found are the most beneficial exercises that people really feel have changed their
lives for the better?

Susanne: I have the honour of interacting with a lot of successful people over the years who felt absolutely rubbish on the inside. Even though they looked successful on the outside, they felt like a failure on the inside. What this taught me is that success is a mindset, success is a choice. Often installed in us during the early years of childhood, it becomes our blueprint for future success. Unraveling this and what you personally believe what success means to you, is the key to living a life that is fulfilling and satisfying – and not just looking like a success on the outside. Others don’t get to decide what success means to you. Hence me saying success is a choice, you can feel like the most successful person in the world and not have anything to show for and vice versa. The most important exercise I’ve learned therefore is gratitude. Be grateful for what you have and who you are, because let’s face it, there is only one of you! And that is worth celebrating any day!

Nishant: How do you cultivate joy in your life? Whom do you consider the most happy and
fulfilled to you personally, and why? Could you share any instance(s) that caused
you unhappiness and how you dealt with it?

Susanne: My baby boy when he is eating food is the happiest and fulfilled person I know. He is two years old and he loves food. The way he touches it, eats it and enjoys it, is something I never got to experience due to severe food allergies when I was a child – and even now still. Seeing him, it is changing my perception of food completely. Because, if that is the way food can make me feel that good and not cause pain, inflammation, allergic reactions or generally unhappy, I definitely want to be eating more!

In the past I’ve dealt with this by avoiding certain types of food when my body responded that way, however, thanks to my baby boy I noticed my relationship with food is changing completely. Rather than it feeling like a necessary evil it is shifting towards the most wonderful and nutritional experience you can give yourself!  

Nishant: How do you find the balance between being appreciative of what you already
have and striving to achieve more?

Susanne: I believe this ties in with mindset as I mentioned above. It is ok to want more, even if you are perfectly happy with what you have now. It is part of life to explore, develop and change! Although growing up, I was taught it was greedy to want more, it is not true. Life is about creating, growing and expanding, so the balance I find is a state of being where I am grateful for what I have and happy to be moving towards new and exciting things too.

Nishant: What advice people should ignore when suffering with depression, anxiety, or
any other negative emotions? Do you have a particular message you would like
to give to the people?

Susanne: The thing people should ignore is when others say there is nothing you can do about it, you are just going to have to live with it. I was diagnosed with complex PTSD at 17 and was told I was beyond help and I managed to resolve it completely. For me, it was tied in with the food allergies as my gut health was completely to pieces. We know now that gut health is very important in regards to general health and mental health. So if you are not seeing the results you want, it might be worth exploring your gut health. There are 8 billion people on this planet, statistically speaking there will be a few people out there able to help you! I can guarantee you that! Just because you haven’t found a solution yet, it doesn’t mean you are never going to be able to improve or completely resolve it in the future.

Please enjoy!
