How To Make The Leap Of Your Life And Thrive W/ Tommy Baker
Today we are joined by Tommy Baker. In case you haven't heard of Tommy, he is the host of the Resist Average Academy podcast, and he helps dreamers, visionaries, and entrepreneurs bring their dreams to life —and create a life they just can’t wait to wake up for.
He is the author of UnResolution, The 1% Rule, and The Leap Of Your Life, and he helps people live up to their potential through his writing, coaching, podcasting, and many more activities.
In this wide-ranging episode, we talk not just about how to resist average and get yourself to the level that you want, but also where most people fall short, where they get stuck, and some of the things that both he and I have experienced in life that have made us pivot, change, grow and develop.
We go really deep, we go into biohacking, and although it takes us a little while to get into the conversation itself, I really enjoyed this episode. I learned a lot and I got a few really powerful ideas that I'm going to start implementing tomorrow in my journaling routine and in some of the warm-up rituals that I do every single morning.
It's amazing to me that after 220 episodes I am still learning new things from guests like Mr. Tommy Baker. Please enjoy!
