Business Coach and Author Susie deVille believes that the process of creating is fueled by five essential practices that assist entrepreneurs and leaders in reclaiming their power and inspiration. She shares how many business owners gravitate toward analytical "left-brain" actions and lose access to their most potent tools: intuition, imagination, and ideation.
Susie shares her process known as the 5Ms™: meditation, morning pages, movement, moments of inspired learning, and making something. The 5Ms™ are powerful ways to interrupt your pattern of thoughts and behaviors. Susie encourages listeners to "get in the balcony of your perspective" and completely shift their lives and businesses.
Podcast host Christopher Miller shares his passion for Richard Nelson Bolles' book, What Color is Your Parachute? and one of its exercises that focus on writing down past achievements. Susie calls the process "Play Histories" and asks her clients to write stories and, upon completion, go back and circle the verbs. These verbs are powerful hints about your core essential self and help us remember what brings us alive.
Creativity is a state of connection and ground for an entrepreneur. In the moments of creating, we send down a taproot into our depths, allowing intuitive hits to rush to the surface. Once our intuition is ignited, we learn to trust ourselves, break through being stuck, and enjoy newfound clarity that powers our ability to reach our goals.
Susie cautions the listeners on the tendency to avoid their truth by engaging in habits that buffer us from experiencing our feelings, such as overworking, perfectionism, numbing food, and alcohol, and letting negative thoughts go unaddressed. Use her process to relax, recenter into your authentic vitality, and access your creativity back channels.
