#4 - Living Without Fear: Aaron Baker

from It's Good To Walk | Published 3/28/2021

Aaron Baker was a professional motocross athlete when he sustained a career ending spinal cord injury. He fractured his cervical vertebrae 4,5,6 rendering him a quadriplegic and was given the prognosis of “one in a million” chance of just being able to feed himself again..When it comes to people overcoming the odds, look no further than this man. The fact that he is still alive is a miracle but then you consider what he’s gone on to do since his accident and you would be forgiven for thinking that it’s just all an elaborate story made up to feature on Netflix. Well funnily enough his award winning and very real story ‘Coming to my senses’ is actually on Netflix but he’s been making waves from long before then..Aaron and I are actually both ambassadors for Wings For Life who are the charity arm of Red Bull and fund spinal cord injury research. He has been an inspiration to me since my accident so to finally sit down and have this conversation with him was really cool. Aaron not only has a lot of experience with resilience but he’s become a student of mind and body resulting in someone we can all learn a huge amount from. He’s cool, calm and highly insightful…everything I hoped for and so much more. .We talk about:Change Finding peaceAcceptanceEnjoyable pain& much more..Hope you enjoy and as always thank you for listening....Resources:WFL - https://www.wingsforlife.com/en/Coming to my senses - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3ZhAfn1cMwArrons website - http://imaaronbaker.com/.Follow Aaron:Insta - @imaaronbakerTwitter - @ImAaronBaker----------------------------------------------------------Thank you to our sponsor the Coaching AcademyThe Coaching Academy are the world's largest life coach training provider and do an absolutely amazing job, teaching everyday people to make a difference to the lives of others - every day.So if you've ever thought about helping people achieve their goals, gain greater clarity in their life or help them build confidence and resilience, a full or part time career working from home as a Life Coach may well be for you.Check out The Coaching Academy’s free webinars, they run every week and can help you find out if Life-Coaching is for youFind out more at tcacoach.com
