Tommy Baker: Honoring Your Seasons

Tommy Baker

“Fall is the season of harvest; a moment of appreciation and gratitude. Winter is a hibernation period of inner work, reflecting, and preparing for what's next. Spring is a time of creation, going through the process, and planting the seeds. Summer happens when all of the work from Spring is now flourishing, blossoming, and coming to life. However, each season requires different energies and you cannot force yourself into a season; you have to be honest and honor each season.” – Tommy Baker

Which season will help you take the next big leap in your life: Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter?

Whether your leap is quitting the soul-sucking job and starting your own business, taking a bold chance on love or finally going all in on your dreams, The Leap of Your Life is the ticket to get you there – all while having the time of your life and ensuring you don't wake up years down the line with a sinking feeling of regret.

Author and high-performance coach Tommy Baker has helped thousands of everyday people identify and take their leap, step into courage, and create a life they can't wait to wake up for. After interviewing 250+ of the world's most powerful entrepreneurs, thought leaders, experts, spiritual teachers, and athletes he discovered a common theme:

They all took a leap, even if they were full of fear – and it radically transformed their experience of life.

The Four Seasons of Wellness

“The work doesn’t stop when you’re in a Winter season; the work actually becomes more intense which can lead to some emotional challenges. Just like a Winter season, Spring, Summer, and Fall will also have their own challenges. Each one will serve you in a new way and will require different energy but you cannot force yourself into a season; you have to honor each one.” – Tommy Baker

Questioning Your Path

“While on your journey of growth and discovering who you are, you will of multiple moments of questioning your path and I never see that as a bad thing. Whether you're on track or off track, questioning your path is very healthy. If you're off track, it's very obvious and hopefully questioning your path will lead to some new insights and breakthroughs that will put you back on track. However, even if you're on track and you're committed to your mission, when you question it, you will have the opportunity to gain new insights and perspectives but also reaffirm your commitment.”  – Tommy Baker

Leave Space For The Magic

“If you don't leave space for the magic, that's a big loss. So, delete some things from your life like social media or binge-watching Netflix. The average American watches 35 hours and 25 minutes of TV a week; that's a lot of magic that's being given away.”  – Tommy Baker
