Connecting With & Emulating Your Future Self | Dr Benjamin Hardy Part 1

Self Helpful with Kevin Miller

We are talking about your future self. Who are you becoming? Who do you want to become? And the question is, can you conceptualize and connect with that person right now, and from this connection, drastically accelerate your personal growth and success? I’m with Dr Benjamin Hardy, who you hear me refer to often. His first book, Willpower Doesn’t Work, is at the top of my book referral list. His second book, “Personality Isn’t Permanent” is up there too. His recent book with Dan Sullivan, The Gap And The Gain, is a runaway best seller. His books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and his blogs have been read by hundreds of millions. Ben is also the intro story in my forthcoming book which you’ll see…sometime in 2023. This is my third time having Ben on the show, and the occasion is his brand new book, Be Your Future Self Now: The Science of Intentional Transformation. When I talked to him about a year ago he shared his research and piqued my interest with the “End of history illusion”, which we start this episode off talking about, and I think you’ll want to hear about it. As we talked in this episode, what intrigued me as much or more than just trying to become your future self now, was Ben’s concept of how powerful it is for our progress and ultimate success if we’ll connect with our future self. This is something we do pretty well as kids, but after entering into adulthood, we basically lose any perspective on who we are expecting to become. And we so often lose our way. Ben is an organizational psychologist and has devoted significant research to the issue and become a leading expert on the application of the Future Self science. Ben’s new book, Be Your Future Self Now, can be found everywhere, and check this out, if you’ll go to futureself.com/free, those of you in America can get free Kindle codes and get the book…free! No catch. He just bought a ton of codes and offered them to me to share with you. You can connect with him at benjaminhardy.com.

How To Be Your Future Self Right Now – Benjamin Hardy, Ph.D. : 966

The Human Upgrade with Dave Asprey—formerly Bulletproof Radio

IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...… you’ll find out how your imagined future directs your behavior right now, rather than your past. You’ll learn how to manage threats to your future self, recognize truths about your future self, and how to take steps to be your future self. You’ll also gain strategies you can start using today for creating and becoming exactly who you want to be in the present moment.Benjamin Hardy, Ph.D., is an organizational psychologist and author of multiple books on how to improve your mindset. He joins the show to explain how you can borrow from your future and actually be that person right now. In his newest book, “Be Your Future Self Now: The Science of Intentional Transformation,” he says, “Research now shows that a person’s past does not drive or dictate their actions and behaviors. Rather, we are pulled forward by our future.” There’s no looking back, only moving ahead. Most people, out of fear, limit their view of the future to a narrow range. Take a dangerous leap to think more broadly. Take cues from your brain.“With neuroscience, the brain is essentially considered a prediction machine,” Ben says. “So, what the brain is always doing is predicting what's going to happen, and learning is essentially just updating its sense of predictions. The brain is always anticipating the future.”Since you’re already thinking about the future, put those thoughts to use in the here and now with 21 actions  (7 threats to, 7 truths about, and 7 steps for being your future self) designed to transform yourself. For example:Offset a THREAT: Urgent battles and small goals keep you stuck. To exit the rat race of day-to-day mindset requires a shift in your focus. Face a TRUTH: Failing as your future self is better than succeeding as your current self. The more willing you are to invest in momentary loss and pain directed at a goal, the faster you’ll adapt to the level of your future self. Take a STEP: Schedule your future self. Put the important before the urgent. Once you commit to your Future Self, you’ll be required to be courageous. Choosing freedom over security is an act of courage.WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.
