We live in a world where we’re all about updating. We update our computers, phones, cars, careers—even our partners. Now it’s time to update your personal philosophy and view. In essence, it’s time to update you. Being of Power is about transforming relationships. Not just with others, but with yourself, your experiences, your work, your purpose—how you relate to everything in your life. Here you will find the tools to enable you to break through the limiting views that have been keeping you stuck, frustrated, and unfulfilled; expand your viewpoint to see new possibilities; and come into your authentic self. The nine practices in this book are the stepping-stones on the path back to your essential authenticity, which is where your greatest power lies. These are practices to put into action minute by minute, day by day. We don’t master them all at once; instead, we work them in each present moment, again and again, until eventually we come to embody them as a natural way of being. This is how we transform. The aim of this book is not to tell you "the truth," but rather to help you rediscover your own truth. Your deepest power comes from what you already know inside. You have the intelligence. You have the answers. The nine practices of transformation will simply allow you to dissolve the blocks standing in your way and access the wisdom that’s already within you. They will show you how to put your essentially powerful way of being into action so you can create new, expanded results in your life. At its core, this book is about connecting to your authentic self and rediscovering who you are and what’s possible.

Classic Baptiste -- clear, concise, demystified and applicable to everyday life.
I appreciated Baron's humble honesty of where he is in life and how he arrived. His use of his own personal history to illustrate his 9 practices is inspiring. This is definitely a book I will re-read, not because the material is new, but because the way he puts it is comforting and empowering.
Baron Baptiste's writing makes me think of Strunk & White's advice. Vigorous writing is concise, and Mr. Baptiste omits needless words and makes every word count. Beautifully written and easy to read, this book helps you go deeply within to get your weaknesses out of the way of your strengths. It's very inspiring and I would recommend it for any age group.
