Stop Worrying about The “Doing” and Just “BE”

23 Nov

Hello all.

Just “BE”cause…

Many people continually ask me “what I do.” Questions arise such as, “How do you live a life of abundance, how do you do what you do and make a living?” They are so focused on what “I do,” that they are forgeting the lesson.

I AM
It’s not what I do. It’ s who I am. This is a concept many people are struggling with. I don’t “do” anything. I just be. When I just be me, the actions flow out of me naturally.

When you begin to understand this within yourself, you will understand why I just have to be myself when I type on here and everything else just takes care of itself. This state of allowing good to flow into my life, is a result of not much logical thinking, it’s a result of just being what I know.

BE YOU

Just relax and be you. I think the confusion comes in for many people with this subject because of the conflict they experience in expectations. This expectation of themselves comes from society’s expectation and or a perceived higher “authority” figures expectation. I urge people to not conform to what society or an “authority” wants from them. I only urge this route if in fact, that what society and what your perceived “authority” demands from you, is NOT in alignment with who you really are. Simply want what you want for you simply because it feels good for you. This feeling alone acts as an energy that will get you outside of the box of trying to “do” and into “being.”

I intend to serve as an example of how to be, not what necessarily what to do.

How Your Life is REALLY Measured

18 Nov

Hello all.

Our lives are measured not by what we do, but who we are. What you do on a daily basis is a by product of who you already are. If you don’t like what you are doing everyday, you always have the freewill and choice to change that.  Who you are comes way before what you do, because who you are is your essence and is where your truth lives.

You can do a lot of work, and do all sorts of things, but these things don’t really define who you are.  It was once stated that we are all human “beings” not human “doings.”

 

It is my firm belief that when people go back to their essence of who they really are, the doing is just second nature, and they can begin to measure their lives by their inner being, not necessarily by what they “do” for a living.

The Most Important Thing To Consider In Your Personal Development

13 Nov

tree3

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.

Your Choice-The Importance of Your Value System

9 Nov

Hello all.

You are constantly being presented with many choices in your life. Which is the best one ? You tell me. Only you really know which is the best choice. In this blog I give the power back to the indiviudal. I belive in freewill, and that your choices create your reality. Before we get into choice making, let’s first talk about values, because I believe that your values determine the choices you eventually make.

“You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.” -Deepak Chopra

Values
The choices you make are a result of your values. Choices are easier to make when you are clear on your values and your set of standards. How do you develop your own values? Well, a lot of it is what you were taught early on as a child. Things generally carry more perceived value to you when were conditioned in a certain way early on. With that said values can actually change over time as you grow and learn more about yourself.

“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.” -Roy Disney

My Personal Example on Values

An example would be for me personally I used to really value the game of basketball. It was something I loved to do, and enjoyed playing. There was a point in my life that I would think of actually very little else, than playing the game of basketball. So the way I made choices were based around this sport. I remember there would be occasions when I would choose to miss a high school party in my teenage years, to actually practice on my jump shot all night. I valued getting better at the sport so much, that I would make choices focused on this sport. As I grew older there were other things I began to value more. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t like the sport. It just means other things needed more of my attention as time passed by. There were other things that began to excite me at the moment. Things like personal development, business, expressing my creativity, and making a positve impact on the world began to be more valuable to me. So now I structure my choices accordingly, based on the values I have in the present.

What Do You Value?

Begin now to get clear on what your values are at this moment in your life. We all have different values. For example, Some people value money more than anything else, some value family, relationships, friendships etc. I’m not here to judge you on what you value. I’m here to let you know that the things, people, and experiences you value the most is what really guides you in your decision making. So the next time you find yourself having to make a hard decision between one thing or another, think about what you value at the moment. What is important for you? When you get clear on your values, you are clear on the choices you decide to make. Remember, at the end of the day it is always your choice.


It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. -Tony Robbins

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.

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.”

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.
