Be Your Future Self Now with Dr. Benjamin Hardy
Dr. Benjamin Hardy joins us in one of the podcast's most anticipated interviews to reveal the secrets of constructing a present in alignment with the best version of our future selves.
Dr. Hardy holds a P.h.D in Organizational Psychology; he is the author of several books on self-development and entrepreneurship, the world's leading expert on the application of the Future Self science, a husband to his wife Lauren, and a loving father of six.
In this episode, Dr. Hardy shares bits of his personal history in an original way; he starts from his current self, the one several years ago he saw as an ideal future self, and goes backward, explaining the situations and decisions that led him to where he is now.
We talk about some lessons we can learn from his latest book, "Be your future self now," and explore the multiple applications the book offers to improve our day-to-day life. Dr. Hardy explains the critical role "forcing functions" have in our lives, the 80/20 rule applied to our goals, and how our future dictates our present.
Dr. Hardy also shares some details from his next book, "10X is easier than 2X," we explore the power of refining and augmenting end goals to modify and make our present better, and much more.
