Personality Isn't Permanent w/ Benjamin Hardy
Best Selling Author and Visionary LeaderWow! I loved this visit with Dr. Benjamin Hardy an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work and a new book titled Personality Isn't Permanent.

Ben's blog has been read by over 100 million people and featured on Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, Big Think, and many others. You can find those relevant links in the show notes at page end.
More About Benjamin HardyBenjamin is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today, and for 3 years running, he was the #1 writer, in the world, on Medium.com.
You will want to join his over 400k email subscribers because his articles are profoundly insightful. In fact, I see Benjamin as a modern day stoic philosopher and visionary leader.
Benjamin lives in Orlando, Florida, with his family. And speaking of family, Benjamin and his wife Lauren adopted three children in February 2018 after years of fighting the foster system in order to be able to. Then one month later, guess what happened? Yep… Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018. So within one year, they had 5 children!
I’m delighted to get to speak to one of my online virtual heroes and mentors, and in particular to talk about his epic new book (as well as book launch tips for you authors and creators).

Laugh at Fear - Coffee Break
Our Coffee Break Sessions are various conversations we have about quotes, people who've uplifted us, ideas we've been pondering and sometimes we'll bring in other mystery guests! 😎
This episode LeAura and I cover the topic of fear, a feeling every creator is intimately familiar with.
In this Episode
- Addressing one of Devani's fears
- The various ways fear will show up
- Why you need a like-minded peer group
- How to combat fear
When you train your mind that fear can be a fuel to propel your vision, you take away it's power to control your life.
Coffee Break - Finding the Good in the Bad
Finding the good in the bad can be challenging, but possible, and the more we practice it, the easier it gets.
This isn't about denying the bad or negative. Rather, it's about not focusing on that and instead, focusing on the attitudes and actions that empower us rather than paralyze us with fear.

I start most mornings with iCreateDaily podcast while drinking my morning coffee and completing tasks. A great way to jumpstart the day, having good content that always is applicable to creators. It is honest and raw information to guide any creator toward a successful path.
I love the inspiration I get from these coffee break episodes. After listening to just one episode my creative ideas start flowing. I love the variety of guests they bring on as well.
Listened and quite enjoyed the gratitude break episode. I liked the distinction they make between real joy and gratitude and just feeling happy or feeling pleasure you occasionally get. I really liked the idea of making and keeping a joy listen to start and find the direction you want to move in. Also Really enjoyed the hosts openness and am excited to check out the other episodes
