About The 1% Rule
In a highlight reel, microwave world — you're led to believe success is right around the corner:
It's not working.
Not only is it not working with your ability to achieve your goals, but we've also never been more frustrated, stuck, stressed and unfulfilled.
Most personal development is all about the big and bold vision, yet these days we're not missing ambition or dreamers…
We're missing results and execution.But what if there was a way to shut off the noise, fall in love with the process and take one step forward every single day as you paint your life's masterpiece?
Enter The 1% Rule — a daily system designed to help you close the gap without the crushing pressure that has kept you stuck in the past.
The 1% Rule was designed to answer three core questions:
- Why do some people seem to achieve massive success with everything they do — while others can't seem to get out of their own way?
- What separates those who get excited and inspired for a season, a quarter or a few months — and those who are consistently on fire?
- What are the mindsets, principles, routines, and behaviors of those who execute daily, and those who sit on the sidelines pondering?
…through answering these questions over the last decade in the trenches with thousands of people — they are now the framework of The 1% Rule and are yours today.
All transformation is emotional. Whether you want to lose ten pounds or grow your business, you're going to have that emotional battle that comes with change and getting uncomfortable. - Tommy Baker of @ResistAverageClick To Tweet

Power Quotes From The ShowSo many breakthroughs come during breakdowns because that's when the band-aid is ripped off and we're actually willing to take an honest look at ourselves. That's when change happens. - Tommy Baker of @ResistAverageClick To Tweet
“We can grasp all of the answers we need in the moments of silence and where our inspiration lies. Anywhere in which you feel a pull, there are your answers. If you give yourself enough space, all of the answers you need will come up. All of the distraction, noise, and stimulus you face elsewhere is just blocking the answers but if you dig deep, you can get them back.” – Tommy Baker
“Ultimately, emotions can be used in one of two ways: to create or to destroy. If we don't understand our emotions, we become lost and often take the destructive route through bad habits that destroy our bodies or relationships. Getting to know oneself is a beautiful journey and you have to be okay with these “negative emotions” which aren't even negative emotions. If we have the courage to dig deep enough into the dark, there's always going to be something in there like a moment of clarity or new opportunity that we never noticed saw before.” – Tommy Baker
“A lot of people talk about unconditional love with others but what about unconditional love with ourselves? Are we willing to face ourselves with these dark emotions and not judge ourselves or feel guilty but just be a witness to them and appreciate ourselves despite our flaws?” – Tommy Baker
