How to Rewrite Your Story with Benjamin Hardy

Imagine learning to design your identity based on your desired future self rather than who you have been in the past. Through his book, Personality Isn’t Permanent: Break Free from Self-Limiting Beliefs and Rewrite Your Story, Dr. Benjamin Hardy offers practical, science-based insights for how we go through the process of personal-reinvention and confronts the popular misconception that who we are is innate and unchanging.

Hardy believes in challenges the limiting belief that our “true self” is to be discovered, and instead shows that we can intentionally create our desired self and, in the process, achieve our goals. He advises that we never be the “former” anything–defining ourselves only by our past successes or failures–and that we use a future self filter to see clearly where we’re going and who we need to be now in order to get there.


Dr. Benjamin Hardy is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Personality Isn’t Permanent and Willpower Doesn’t Work. His blogs have been read by over 100 million people and are featured on Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, Big Think, and many others.
