    INSIDE TODAY'S EPISODE...





    MEANINGFUL WORDS:



    "Values are the deep-seated beliefs that motivate behaviors and determine people's compatabilities with each other. People will fight for their values, and they are likely to fight with people who don't share them."

    - Ray Dalio, Founder of Bridgewater.





    //KEYNOTES





    ★ What Are Values?



    What makes a value a value.

    Values vs. Abilities vs. Skills.

    Values and hierarchy.



    ★ Why Do Values Matter?



    The importance of alignment.

    The wife story.

    What we are building out.



    ★ When Values Collide.



    Values are difficult to change.

    Opposing values.

    Moving smoothly





    //THE HARD TRUTH



    The values we hold are difficult to change and are not very fluid. The process of getting to know oneself and aligning values with those you intend to work closely with



    //ASK AND APPLY



    The question today is this: Where in your life are your values not aligned with people or processes that are close to you? Work, fitness, relationships... where do you see an opportunity to apply a change to your benefit?



    Once you have your answer, you must honor the work and practice.



    Apply the concept: Come up with at least one way you can use what you just learned to step into a place that requires you to step toward your new more favorable identity in any role you take on.



    As Rumi said, "As you start to walk on the way, the way appears."

    Episode 19 – Self Signal Who You Are

    Podcast Opening:



    Welcome to Do The Hard Thing Episode 19. I am Jason Archer… creator, freedom seeker, leader of self | full time student and part time teacher of self mastery, and today is all about Self Signaling.



    The goal, as always, is to dive deeper into how we humans can more effectively move toward the outcomes we want. Usually, this means getting uncomfortable and doing hard things. So, turn up the volume, put down the distractions and let’s kick this off…



    [NOTE: Insert some intro music here | Insert brief description here]



    Summary Description:



    Have you ever started down a path to create something meaningful in your life, and for whatever reason found yourself not moving toward the outcome you claim to want... And no matter the situation, part of you simply refused to move. This podcast is born from idea. Do The Hard Thing is an exploration in human movement.



    INSIDE TODAY'S EPISODE...





    MEANINGFUL WORDS:



    "We generally believe that we have a privileged view of our own preferences and character, but in reality we don’t know ourselves that well (and definitely not as well as we think we do). Instead, we observe ourselves in the same way we observe and judge the actions of other people — inferring who we are and what we like from our actions."

    - Dan Ariely, Ph.D.





    //KEYNOTES





    ★ How Do We See Ourselves?



    Who you are at your core.

    Where does your behavior and personality come from?

    Programs and beliefs.

    Examine yourself and gain an awareness.



    ★ What Is Self Signaling?



    Self Signaling is the idea that you can act your way in to thinking of yourself differently.

    Your actions will ultimately define your identity.

    Remember the stolen wallet example.

    People self signal failure and don't realize it makes their journey harder.

    Diet example.



    ★ Don't Cheat Yourself.



    Knowing this means you can act yourself into a new identity.

    You can become different internally by external action.

    Good news: You can use this to your advantage.

    Form new habits, or new thought processes that will serve you in completing your task.

    By contrast, once you cheat or lie... you become more likely to do so.





    //THE HARD TRUTH



    Actions can literally change who we are. Once we start violating our own standards (say, with cheating on diets or for monetary incentives), we are much more likely to abandon further attempts to control our behavior.



    //ASK AND APPLY



    Ask yourself this: Where in your life are you self signaling negativity? Work, fitness, relationships... where do you see an opportunity to apply this concept to your benefit?



    Once you have your answer, you must honor the work and practice.



    Apply the concept: Come up with at least one way you can use what you just learned to step into a place that requires you to step toward your new more favorable identity in any role you take on.
