Benjamin Hardy Quotes - Author, entrepreneur, visionary, thought leader. #BenjaminHardyQuotes #Visioning #FutureSelf #Goals #SetAGoal

Lots of great Benjamin Hardy quotes here, with more to come!

We pulled these together because Ben is one of our favorite authors and visionary thought leaders. Best selling author, organizational psychologist and popular blogger, we enjoyed an illuminating and inspiring interview with Benjamin Hardy, PhD, organizational psychologist, author, entrepreneur, for the iCreateDaily Podcast.

Many of these quotes were culled from that podcast conversation. Many of the other quotes here came from his book, Personality Isn’t Permanent. This landmark book is as essential in your personal development bookshelf as is Mindset by Carol Dweck and Start With Why, by Simon Sinek.

We will continue to add more over time because one thing’s for sure, whenever we tune into Ben’s books, articles, interviews, presentations, such as his TED talk or our podcast conversation, he’s always got gems to share.

Personalities and Benjamin Hardy Quotes

RESEARCH REVEALS:
Personality can be intentionally changed through goal-setting and sustained personal effort.
2015 study by Drs. Nathan Hudson and Chris Fraley

Personality changes accelerate when people are leading meaningful and satisfying lives. 
Study published in 2013 by Drs. Christopher Soto and Jule Specht

~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, writer

SOURCE: Personality Isn’t Permanent

“When you allow yourself to stop defining yourself as a certain ‘type’, such as “introvert” or “extrovert”, you become far more open. Your possibilities and choices expand. Your responsibility and agency increase. You can do what you want to do, regardless of how you currently see yourself.  
~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, writer

SOURCE: Personality Isn’t Permanent

“I believe that personalities should be created. The challenge with the current view is the idea that it must be discovered. When you seek to discover your personality then your whole goal becomes to confirm who you really are. But when you seek to create, then you become the creator and your goals become the shaper of your personality versus your personality being the shaper of your goals. And that’s crucial because your goals can transform you in so many beautiful ways.”
~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, writer

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

Perfectionism

On Procrastination:
“It’s better to be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and to realize it’s okay to do imperfect stuff.”
~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, philosopher

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

Relationships

The Self Expansion Model:
“We expand in our efficacy — our ability to produce results in life, based on our relationships. We expand our efficacy through relationships because we embed the strengths of each of us.”
~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, philosopher

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

Transformation

“I think to focus on the gains and not the gaps is one of the biggest ways to transform your past.”
~Benjamin Hardy, psychologist, author, writer

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

You have to have a future self in mind in order to practice in a certain way to go through a process that’s transformational.
~Benjamin Hardy, psychologist, author, writer

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

Visioning

“If you were genuinely honest about what you’d love to be doing; who you’d love to be… if you dared to admit what you wanted, and you start visioning that every day, the next major step is to tell everyone. Admitting that that’s not who you are now, but that’s who you want to be… beginning to be honest about who you’re striving to be allows your words to match your vision. It’s really important to tell everyone about what you’re trying to do. It really aligns you in your environment.”
~Benjamin Hardy, organizational psychologist, author, philosopher

SOURCE: ICreateDaily Podcast

“It’s best to make decisions based on what your future, not your present, self wants.”
