How to make an identity shift 👨‍🎤

Hey there creator,

In last week's essay, I wrote about how the most important aspect of self-development is identity change.

Lately, I've been reading a lot about this topic.

It seems every teacher, author, and spiritual guru worth their salt highlights the power of changing who you are to create real, lasting change in life.

Even quantum physics touts the idea of identity shifting in explaining the nature of reality through the laws of vibration and resonance.

Identity change is where it’s at.

But how the hell does one shift their identity?

Truthfully, from everything I've learned about this topic, it comes down to nuance and in this week's post, I took my best stab at explaining them.

It all starts with asking the million-dollar question that your life depends on.

But when you answer it, do it in the spirit keeping in mind this nuance: life is merely a game of experimentation.

I explain more in the post.

Have a great weekend! 🙏

Ideas That Changed My Life

Your personal experiences make up maybe 0.00000001% of what’s happened in the world but maybe 80% of how you think the world works.

We’re all biased to our own personal history. Whatever you experienced in life you both understand something that people who haven’t experienced those things never will, but you’ll also likely overestimate the prevalence of those things happening again, or happening to other people.

Start with the assumption that everyone is innocently out of touch and you’ll be more likely to explore what’s going on through multiple points of view, instead of cramming what’s going on into the framework of your own experiences. It’s hard to do. It’s uncomfortable when you do. But it’s the only way to get closer to figuring out why people behave like they do.

Comparison = The Thief of Joy

James Clear

To improve, compare little things:

  • strategies
  • techniques
  • exercise routines

To be miserable, compare big things:

  • career path
  • marriage
  • net worth
Comparison is the thief of joy when applied broadly, but the teacher of skills when applied narrowly.

Why is it that we psych ourselves out when we come up with an idea that excites us but requires big change? Why are we conditioned to view any undertaking that diverts from our status quo as extremely difficult? Why is it when we close our eyes and envision a life we truly desire we dismiss it as mere fantasy?

This post looks at how we overthink the act of creating change in our lives because we are conditioned to think in terms of “being realistic”.
