How Not To Be A Victim To Deep Unwanted Emotions with Susan Choi

The New Generation Entrepreneur Podcast

In this episode, I’m sitting down with a New Generation Mastery Coach, Susan Choi, who helps sensitive leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs learn how to achieve emotional and identity mastery. And, especially since the past few years have been intense for everyone, she’s sharing how to deal with difficult emotions. What’s tricky is sometimes we’ll make decisions based on “unseen” emotions and never even know it. This can lead to stress or feeling stuck – and we don’t want this for you! So tune in and discover how to see emotions instead of feeling them, if unseen emotions are getting in your way, a process for dealing with emotions you're experiencing, and how you can bring this practice into your family for healing as well. There are several ways to get stuck in an emotion and Susan’s insight and coaching is incredibly helpful. You’ll even hear me work through an unseen emotion I had no clue I was holding onto… Are you ready to take action and start getting DMs from people asking about how they can work for you?

Susan Choi (with Grace Paley, Raymond Carver, Jamaica Kincaid, and William Kennedy)

The Writers Institute

Writers direct years of effort to language’s possibilities, so when you listen to a podcast devoted to writers speaking (which is this one) you can expect an appropriate range of possibility. You might hear something unforgettable—something that changes how you think, or reinforces a hunch you had, or confuses you in the most liberating way. On The Writers Institute, we seek those moments in the New York State Writers Institute’s overbrimming audio archives, guided by writers in 2022 who join that archival exploration. In this series premiere, Susan Choi—author of novels including Trust Exercise and My Education—listens with host Adam Colman to literary giants Grace Paley and Raymond Carver. Along the way, she talks about writers in the world, off the page.“One thing I really like about writers,” Choi says, is that “writers are really curious about other people . . . I’m constantly amazed by how often I meet people who have no curiosity at all, about anything. It’s really disturbing to me, actually.”On this episode:Susan Choi (in conversation with Adam Colman).

Ep 527 - Trust Exercise, by Susan Choi


This award-winning novel by a real writer's writer has elicited a broad range of responses, with some folks praising the prose and structure and others bouncing off its characters and style. But maybe that range of reactions was inevitable given the way Trust Exercise explores the slipperiness of memory and narrative. Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.

The Key to Stress-Proof High Performance with Susan Choi

Make Time for Success with Dr. Christine Li

Ambition has always been part of Susan Choi’s vocabulary. Although she’s a stress management coach now, she didn’t always know how to manage stress herself. Susan was overworked daily working in the corporate world, but a health scare made her realize that her definition of ambition needed to be rewritten. This episode describes her journey and how she slowly began to realize there was a lot more to life than achievement and the pursuit of success. You’ll learn more about how she was able to work towards a more renewed and stress-proofed future and how she now teaches others how to do the same for themselves. My guest this week is Susan Choi, a High Performance Stress Management Coach and Podcast Host of STRESSPROOF, a TOP 100 Podcast in Mental Health on iTunes. She is the founder of the Stressproof Method™, a program that helps stressed out and sensitive leaders finally break free from emotional and mental limitations. Susan currently works with startup sales executives, entrepreneurs, and other industry leaders worldwide. Timestamps:  [2:45] - How a health wake-up call made Susan question her ambitious nature [9:57] - What is unnecessary stress and how it contributes to burnout [11:12] - You don’t always have to believe everything you’re thinking [15:08] - Understand what your upper limit is [26:33] - Allow yourself to feel the ups and downs [28:47] - Your reality is based on your perceived beliefs and filters. Learning how to become aware of that allows you to think more purposefully.   __________________________________________________________ For more information on the Make Time for Success podcast, visit: https://www.maketimeforsuccesspodcast.com Connect with Us!

This week, our guest is novelist Susan Choi.  She’s the author of five books, most recently “Trust Exercise”. It centers on a group of teenagers at a competitive art school in 1980s suburbia.  What starts out as something straightforward becomes more complex – and with an experimental narrative structure that concludes with a surprise twist.  The book won the 2019 National Book Award for fiction.  Choi teaches fiction writing at Yale and lives in Brooklyn. On February 16, 2021, Susan Choi spoke with Rachel Khong, the author of “Goodbye, Vitamin”. Choi described growing up as one of a few people of color in her Indiana town, and how teaching writing has made her a better writer.
