DIM 35: Stop self-sabotaging your financial goals (Atomic Habits #1)

If someone asks you want you do or who you are, how do you answer?

The way you answer is a reflection of how you identify. Your identity is either reinforced or undermined by your daily habits.

In Atomic Habits, James Clear talks about how habits shape your identity.

It's important that our habit changes start with our identity. When adopting a new identity, you must:

  1. Decide the type of person you want to be.
  2. Prove it to yourself with small wins.

Kurtis tells a personal story about an identity he adopted and how he self-sabotaged himself out of that identity. The episode ends with 2 questions for you to reflect on:

In what ways have you adopted a new identity in your life?

What are you holding onto that could stop you from keeping that identity?
