You have been a prisoner of a little pond.
I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
Come merge with me.
We sat on a couch in a hotel lobby. She asked me if I could help with the tension in her neck.
I was terrified.
She was a successful business woman in her fifties. I was a business consultant. Pain relief was way beyond my expertise.
For some reason, I said yes. I put my hand on her shoulder and waited a few minutes. Then, my hand started to move, and I started to speak. I felt her tension was more emotional than physical so I asked questions about her life and things important to her.
It took 15 minutes. She said the change was profound and she felt more alive. I was about to leave when she looked at me with a smile and handed me a 100 Euro bill. This came out of the blue.
“Why?” I asked.
“This is for building your empire.”
It was 2008. My first paid coaching session.
Just like that, my world shifted. Maybe you’ve known it, too, that moment when your life would never be the same again. From that moment I knew my calling: to guide people to their life fully lived.
Why am I doing this?
There is more to life than we could ever imagine.
It is an overwhelming feeling, how free and powerful we are in the world. All you have to do is step beyond your little pond and dive into the ocean of limitless opportunities.
You can start over, reinvent yourself, make deep change—remake your life completely from any point or any age.
I know how to go through change and I have a strong urge to share it—I must share it—with those who are on the precipice of this realization.
But how can I share it? Tell you about it? Words are cheap. Show you an example? It isn’t personal enough. So, what can I do?
I can let you experience it for yourself.
Coaching is the most profound and sustainable way for me to guide you beyond. If you are willing, if you are hungry for more, then let’s go. You walk, and I lead the way with a flashlight, hold your hand, or push you gently from behind.
What have I done so far?
I am an expert in change.
I have lived several lives by leaving my achievements behind and starting from the beginning with the thirst to discover what’s beyond.
Going beyond is what I do best.
Quitting for the sake of major change served me well. I feel more alive today than I did 10 years ago at the top of my financial career. Hell, I feel even more alive today than five years ago when I was running my own trading company or even two years ago when I was sitting in a Buddhist temple in the Himalayas contemplating staying there.
Stepping into the unknown, facing the darkness is what brought me here. The trip is far from over but now I can share this passion with my clients.
My year-long partnership with Alexander turned a trivial task – looking for a new job – into one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. His presence is vivid even when we are continents apart, and “JOY” is what I’m learning in my sessions with him.
I took a journey of 10 life coaching sessions with Alexander Baranov and I can witness that he is gifted and absolutely unique as a life coach. Extremely sensitive and loving, passionate and caring about other peoples’ lives. He is somebody you can trust.
I’ve been working with Alexander for more than a year. He is the one to drag you to what you almost forgot, buried in the back of your mind. Uncomfortable and relieving. Reliving! His professionalism helps to start digging for what you have always been yearning for
