The Most Important Thing To Consider In Your Personal Development

13 Nov

Hello all.

The most important thing to consider in your personal development is that it is YOUR personal development. It doesn’t belong to anyone else, so that’s why I believe that the more you understand your timing and the way you get in your flow, the more you can appreciate your own personal development. So regardless of where you think you are in your own personal development,  know that it’s okay to be there as long as you know you are growing at your pace. Keep in mind what others think about where  you are in your personal development does not matter in this example. Only you would really know where you are in your personal development. If you get stuck with the feeling of not growing, that’s what leads to a lot of confusion about life.


We Are All In different stages in life.

We are all in different stages, I won’t even begin to assume to guess where you are on your particular path. But I know that personal develoment takes time. Some people are developing at this very moment and may not even know it. That’s why I urge people to keep record of all the growing up they did, so you can be grateful for the joy of learning new things for the future. I will post a video soon about the joy of learning on Youtube.

Don’t Compare

Comparing your personal growth with others is a total waste of time. Where you are today is a result of all the choices you made to lead you up to this point in life. It can be daunting or exciting depending on the consious or unconscious choices you have made in the past. But remember regardless if you are doing really well, or things are a bit of a challenge for you at the moment, don’t compare yourself to others. The ego loves to compare and do all these mind tricks, and ends up loosing in the end, because we are all one unified consiousness. Yes we all have different life experiences, but we are all connected at a deeper level in humanity. Accept where you are in your personal development, and use your knowledge to grow and expand into realities you intend to experience for yourself.

YOUR Personal Development

So remember it is your Personal development which means it doesn’t matter where you think you are along the path, or what others think, as long as you recognize life lessons when they appear, and grow from each one in a manner that is right for you. Being Patient and honoring your own personal development growth is essential to a worthwhile life.

When you say “Yes” to doing a job you don’t like, a part of your spirit dies.

Hello all.

We have all been there. The moment of decision, you are offered a job that will make a good enough sum of money that is comfortable for you. “Yay! I finally got a job.” you say to yourself. You get really excited, your parents and people close to you cheer with you, saying all the same thing. The words are uttered “I’m proud of you.”
But wait one second, isn’t “pride” a form of the ego? And if anything is ego based then it won’t last long, and it doesn’t lead to true happiness right?

I get really worried when someone says they are “proud” of me. It’s an indication that I did something good for their ego or something to that effect… I know I’m going in the right direction when something feels right for me, and I actually don’t get a reaction from others. But when I make a decision that a majority of people in society make, like “getting a job” all of a sudden people are “proud of me” ? That worries me.

Being Proud?
It worries me to think that people close to me get an inner sense of pride when I do something like “getting a job.” That’s an indication that they are stuck in a box that someone else has trapped them in. Yes a job means you get money. Yes you need money to survive. But damn! Doing a job you don’t like kills a part of your spirit! Where is THAT STATEMENT in the fine print when I’m signing up for my freakin’ W-2! People need to wake up, and they need to wake up fast, because the world is changing. The rules are changing.

The economy is collapsing people. The reason it is collapsing is because the old structure was built on greed and hunger for power, and only satisfies the temporary high of the ego, so that one day someone who has reached some sort of powerful corporate position can say to that person…
“I’m proud of you.”
You say “yes” to the job. Little did you know the moment you said yes to this job, a part of your spirit dies. I Believe that in most cases, people accept jobs they don’t like because they are in need of something. In many cases it’s money. The bottom line is this, if you are doing a job you don’t like, and you make let’s say a lot of money from it, it won’t really matter in the end. The process is what it’s all about.

The Process
The process is the basis of my Beyond Successful Principles. I mean if you really enjoyed what you were doing and you weren’t in a “needy” position, life really does make a lot more sense. The universe abundantly gives to you the money, resources that you need. It’s all about staying in alignment with what is true for you. If you can trust this wisdom, and even just begin to study it you will find yourself in a place beyond your wildest dreams. You see your spirit knows what is good for you. It constantly tries to remind you via intuition and body signals. By body signals I mean, if you feel your body is being constantly weighed down or sluggish while doing your job, it may be an indication that your body is trying to tell you to choose another direction. Our physical body can only take so much.

Your Body Signals
I have the wonderful privilege of interviewing Caroline Sutherland. The best selling author of the book The Body Knows. She will be on my next blog post. She has studied this stuff and researched and has come to the realization that your physical body is constantly trying to give you signs of what is right or wrong for your spirit. The better your physical body feels the more in alignment you are with your true self, thus creating more exciting and enjoyable life experience.

Tune Into Abundance
What I do know for certain is that if you are doing a job you don’t like just out of neediness, I can guarantee you will always be in a state of neediness. Abundance can’t survive in a state of neediness, because abundance is actually the opposite mindset of neediness. Abundance is the ability to do what you need to do, when you need to do it. It is knowing that all your needs are met financially, emotionally, and spiritually. So in reality when you accept a job you don’t like out of neediness, you actually become more poor, which reflects everything else around you, thus takes away your true abundance that lies within you.

Still Proud?
So please, don’t be proud of people when they are doing jobs they don’t like, because that gives them further motivation to stop listening to their spirit. It gives them validation and approval to do things they don’t like for reasons they don’t understand. Instead be inspired by the blogger, who chooses to blog all day long because that is what give him joy, that is what excites him everyday. Be inspired by the talented musician on youtube who is staying up until 4am to compose some beautiful music for you, because it livens his spirit. Be inspired by the individual who decided to quit her job, and start an empowering business that intends to build a community based on something she feels passionate about and that can create a more positive uplifting space for herself and the people she empowers. Be inspired by the individual that says NO to larger sums of money offered by a corporate job, and chooses to work on his or her passion instead. But also be inspired to the person that says YES to accepting larger sums of money by working on his or her passion. 🙂

Don’t say “yes” to doing a job you don’t like. Say “YES” to doing work that keeps your spirit alive.

Trying Too Hard: The T.T.H Disease & The Cure

19 Sep

T.T.H DISEASE
Trying too hard is a disease. I call this the T.T.H disease. T.T.H stands simply for “Trying To Hard.” It’s a system that many people follow because in this ego based society we are always trying too hard to please everyone. When you try too hard you are given more and more challenges in life, that you unknowingly created. T.T.H is a disease that plagues a lot of people. Like any other disease, it can spread rapidly depending on the company you decide to keep. If you hang around with enough people that have this disease, if you aren’t consious of what is happening, you can begin to agree that this is a disease you also have. The hard part for most people is to let go of the T.T.H disease, once they are infected with it.


“He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul’s estate.”
-Henry David Thoreau

 
WHERE T.T.H ORIGINATED
I believe that The T.T.H disease originated a very long time ago. I think that it started because someone back in history was so scared of the future that decided to past these thoughts of lack and scarcity to others. People followed suit because like courage, fear is also a strong human emotion. The T.T.H disease is something that you will experience in your life, but realize when it comes and how to work around this disease, and how to avoid it. This disease does have a cure, and it all begins and ends with your mindset. What are you putting your focus on? What are you trying to prove to others? Sit back relax. Go with the flow of life, or get swept away in a typhoon, of highly unconscious individuals that are trying hard for working for causes that lead to destruction.

“This art of resting the mind and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is probably one of the secrets of energy in our great men.”
-Captain J. A. Hadfield

 

WHAT THE CURRENT ECONOMY IS TEACHING YOU

This current economy is collapsing and people are beginning to see that the old ways of doing things aren’t working like they used to. People are loosing jobs and loosing homes at record highs. The current economy is a real life example of what we need more of in this society.
I urge you to get creative. Take a new route, use your creative abilities to shine your inner light to the world. By taping into this creative energy deep within you, you will escape the T.T.H Disease. Think of the T.T.H Disease as the ideology that mainstream society wants from you. The only way to combat against it is to make society fit into what you want for you, and from that place you can offer much to the rest of the world.
 

“The Current Collapse in the U.S Economy Presents Tremendous Opportunity for Those That Are Prepared.”
-Baker

 

WHAT YOUR INNER CHILD KNOWS-THE CURE # 1

Begin now to focus on your inner creative child. This inner creative child has more potential than you probably are willing to admit at this moment, but realize that the new energy that is coming into this planet will abundantly support those that are operating from their creative child. Your inner child is the cure to the T.T.H Disease. Your inner child has wisdom that will take you to greater heights if you choose to let it in. It wants to play, it wants to create. As you begin to allow your inner child to speak louder to you than the wants of mainstream society, you will be entering a space that allows you to go with the flow of life, v.s against it. I am convinced that when you are feeling really good, and enthusastic about any current project you are working on, events, people and things are moving along in a very nice pace, this is physical evidence that you are following your inner creative child. Listening to that inner Child is the 1st cure to the T.T.H disease.

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
-Pablo Picasso

 
DON”T SEEK APPROVAL-THE CURE #2
What I have noticed is that a lot of this disease comes from actively trying desperately to seek approval from others. I know it’s easier said than done, but when you really start basing your life from what you expect for yourself, and not the way that others want or expect from you, you will realize that seeking approval is actually pointless and serves no purpose. Think of it, the only real approval you’ll ever need is what you think of yourself, because if your fine with you, everything else flows naturally. When you are flowing naturally, not seeking approval from others, the T.T.H disease weakens as your spirit gets stronger. the T.T.H disease. When you are right with yourself, your outer world is right.
When you are approaching life proving nothing, you gain everything.

“People who want the most approval get the least and people who need approval the least get the most.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer

 
WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS
I’m not saying don’t work hard. I won’t deny that hard work is essential for any worthwhile achievement. What I am saying is focus on your passions more. Focus on the good that comes out of you begin that creative child that brings light to the world. As you focus on your passions work becomes play. This is the secret that most people don’t tell you, because they more than likely have been unconsciously affected by the T.T.H disease. Also don’t place your focus on “who” or “wha”t gave the disease to you. Just work on getting better. When you have the flu, do you fret and focus on pointing blame on “who” passed the flu onto you? No. you focus on healing yourself first. The pain of having a flu is so much, that any fresh breath or signs of healing will feel better. Focus on doing good for you, and as you focus on doing good for you, the T.T.H disease will gradually disappear. Soon enough you will be surrounded with like minded individuals that are free from this disease, and consciously choose to live at a more positive, and higher dimension. Give to yourself more and breathe clean air (metaphorically). What you focus on expands.

SIMPLE RECIPE FOR BEYOND SUCCESS:
POSITIVE ATTITUDE+POSITIVE ACTION= BEYOND SUCCESS

 
There is a very simple recipe for a life of Beyond Success. A Positive attitude + Positive Action= Beyond Success.
It’s really that simple.

I think we live in a day and age where things are getting way too complex. The reason I believe that as a society we try to make things too complex, is because we tend to forget how simple the natural laws of the universe really work. Some of the basic universal laws are based on ideas such as: “As you sow, so shall you reap,” or “As you think, so shall you be.”
I believe each one of you is called for a great purpose. I believe each one of you has that desire for a better more expansive fuffilling lifestyle. That is the only reason I want to give and teach this simple recipe to you. I believe if you, take this and utilize everyday you will soar to great heights you never thought possible in your wildest dreams.

“The simplest things are often the truest.”
-Richard Bach

 
Ever since I moved out here to Arizona, I slowly began to realize how simple this process really is. It took me traveling to a different state to go back to the very basics of why I created Baker The Brand, wrote my own book, and why I even started a blog to begin with.

 
HAVE THE SPECIFIC GOAL

You have a very specific goal. You develop a positive attitude towards this goal and take positive action. You do this on a consistent basis, and surround yourself with people with similar goals than you and you are all set for beyond success.
I understand that there will be roadblocks and challenges along the way, but honestly, it’s just temporary. If you stick to this really simple formula… Positive Attitude+Positive Action=Beyond Success, I can guarantee with certainty you will be achieving more in a short period of time than most people. You will begin to really be living an amazing life when you stick to this formula, because this is the formula I use, and it works every time. If you have a bad day and things don’t go your way, just keep this very simple formula around where you can see everyday, and let that act as reminder to continue pressing on in your personal journey to a beyond successful lifestyle.
 

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

-Henry David Thoreau
 
The formula is so simple that you may tend to forget it, because let’s admit it we live in a day and age where it’s easy to get down on all the crazy things happening in the world. But the person that really gets this message, and sticks to this simple formula will go beyond success.
If you are like me, and you read any inspirational self help, personal development book. This simple formula is found in 100% of each of these great individual’s story. There isn’t any truly remarkable story that didn’t somewhere have this formula in it.
 
The person that stays positive and takes positive action towards their goal, will hit it, and experience beyond success.

Follow this simple recipe and you will find yourself in a an amazing place.

How The Ego Resembles the Stock Market and What to Do When The Stock Market Collapses!

28 Aug

energy1

Hello all.

THE EGO RESEMBLES THE STOCK MARKET

The stock market just like the human ego has highs and lows. You get away with some things and have a really good run, but it comes down again. The economy is a reflection of the ego consiousness of America. I think we all went a little to far with the spending and borrowing of money as a country. The U.S money system is now collapsing before our eyes, because like the ego, it can’t sustain itself any longer. The stock market like the ego is dependent on the opinions and actions of the outside world.

What will happen in the near future is we are going to see many more people loose their homes and jobs. We will begin to see many unconscious individuals feel as they have lost their sense of identity, because they tied their ego and title into their job. This will bring about what I speak about in my book as the Spiritual Revolution. My book elaborates on this topic further, in a straight to the point, no nonsense manner. When people loose everything they ever had, they begin to look inward at to what really matters in life. We will begin to see more people seek inward for the answers to their true purpose in life. We are in a time in history where the real definition of wealth will be understood.

“Real wealth is found in the value you provide to others.”
-Baker


THE NEW ENERGY THAT IS EMERGING ON THIS PLANET

There is a new energy that is emerging on this planet. This new energy may come on or shortly after the year 2012. But, I am convinced that this new energy is already here and will support the people that operate from their heart and soul. Individuals operating out of the heart chakra, will soar to great heights of inner fulfillment and inspire others around them to soar.
We need humility, we need people that are real. No more of this I’m chasing after ego needs stuff. The old way won’t work in the near future.

“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”
– Oscar Wilde

WHEN INDIVIDUALS START OPERATING FROM THEIR HEART & SOUL
When people begin to operate from their heart and soul, it is my belief that we pave the way for a very profound and exceptional generation to come forth and bring about even more positive change in the world. This generation will look inward before they look outside of themselves for how they should think and act towards each other. We will see people really expand and grow financially and spiritually because of this new energy. They will emerge as the leaders of this new era that is here to stay.
