Mark Susnow, Wise coach, Visionary Thinker and Inspirational Speaker, inspires others to find more fulfillment and success in their life. A former trial attorney for 30 years and musician, he integrates what it takes to be successful in the world with the inner wisdom unfolded to him through years of yoga and meditation. “What many people are curious about is how I came to this place in my life.  Looking back it seems like one thing always led to the next. But as I was living it, it didn’t always feel that way. Quite often I wasn’t sure where to turn, but I always seemed to be guided. When one door closed, another opened. From a very exciting career as an attorney at one time in my life, I was called to an inner path of meditation and yoga. My life style was different than most attorneys that I knew. Not only did I have many different interests, I made time for them. This led to our family living on the island of Kauai three months of the year. Now my profession was just one of many things that I did. The path of awakening, which involved, music, yoga, meditation and living in nature, was what made me whole. The law practice, although good to me, became more challenging to juggle. The year 2000 had always been significant in my thinking. Since I had been a kid, I had listened to many prophecies ranging from the world is coming to an end, to we were entering the Age of Aguarius. In 1996 I made a decision.  1999 would be my last year of practicing law. As I approached that moment of truth there was still some doubt as to whether I would follow through on my promise to myself. Would I give up my livelihood that had provided for me all of these years? How was I going to support my family? My children were 13, 11, and 8. Although I put some money aside for their education and for our future I wondered if it would be enough. My soul cried out. Even though I didn’t know what I was going to do next, I was done being a lawyer. Once I made the decision that this was it, divine guidance took over.  On a visit to Optimum Health, a health spa, in Austin, Texas, I met Russell Neece, became a mentor to me. As I expressed my despair to Russell over finding meaning in my life and how to serve others, he suggested that I thank spirit for revealing to me my next step. “It might be revealed next week or six months from now but it will be revealed,” he compassionately told me. On Kauai, a few months later I came to a decision that I would become a Life Coach. Although my path has not been mapped out so that I can see what's next, one thing has always led to the next. That's what makes it exciting. It's been nine years now since I made that decision. I feel blessed. I get to walk this path with many fellow travelers. I learn as much from them as they learn from me. It gives me hope to know that we are all in this together. I trust the journey and know that I am being guided. While many things in my life have been changing and evolving, it’s been my meditation practice that has enabled me to experience that deep place of stillness.”
