Which season will help you take the next big leap in your life: Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter?
Wellness Force Radio Episode 281
Founder of Resist Average Academy, Host of the Resist Average Academy Podcast, and Author of several books including his latest, The Leap of Your Life, Tommy Baker, returns to explain the differences between the four seasons and how they act as a natural mirror of our lives, how to properly use each season as a tool rather than an avoidance mechanism, and his Pain of Untapped Potential Theory about what is actually keeping us from releasing this inner greatness we all posses.
Find out how honoring your seasons will give you the power to let go of inner struggles, tune into what you need right now, and create something incredible in your life.
The Leap of Your Life
There's a bold decision in your life you've been waiting to make, and every day passing by is a reminder of what hasn't happened. Conveniently tucked in a box labeled “someday”, the fear of the unknown has taken a grip on your life and put your dreams on hold. Until now.
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:

Power Quotes From The Show'If we're pushing ourselves and we're thinking bigger and bolder, I sure hope we're also questioning that path. If it's the right path then we'll be more committed. If it's the wrong path, then we'll know.' - @ResistAverageClick To Tweet
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
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
