Being of Power by Baron Baptiste:
40 Days to Your Personal Revolution by Baron Baptiste:
Fear Definition: The uncertainty of the unknown; you're not afraid of the dark, you're afraid of what's in it. It's not the contrast of light, it's the unknowing, the things your mind creates, you're afraid of what you don't know, and you don't know what you don't know. Fear creates stress which in small doses is beneficial because it keeps you grounded and focused but if you let it consume you it could destroy you.
True North Definition: The actual definition of True North is "North according to the earth's axis, not magnetic north." Magnetic north pulls the needle of the compass to the direction that isn't accurate. If you look at a compass and it points north, it isn't necessarily true, because the earth's magnetic poles are not fixed. This applies to us as well. Our true north is not necessarily what we have at face value. We're given an idea of what we're supposed to be attracted to, i.e. gossip, materialism, things we don’t need, image, status, income, and these things pull us further away from our true north, the things that make us feel whole, actualized, energized. Our true north is the real measure of success and these things, the magnetic north, pulls us away from the direction we should be going according to our heart and inspiration. It's not to say magnetic north isn't important. You can use this to find your true north, but you have to remember that there is a balance, they work together.
How they connect: True North & Fear ride together in the same vehicle while on the same journey. It is so important to see this distinction and that it’s never one or the other. By turning on the light to your True North you’re unveiling the Fear that rides along with it. Instead of turning away when fear shows up, we can use it as a tool to manifest our dreams. We can use it as a way to dive deeper into the way we operate when push comes to shove. Fear can have a voice that says “Are you sure you want to do this?” and maybe it will have some good points. It can also say “you’re not qualified for this” so maybe that pushes you to grab more information. Fear can have a voice, but the only thing it can’t do, is drive.
