“BEE Your Best Version”

“BEE Your Best Version”

Many of us claim to be moving down the road to self improvement and just as many anchored in their ways. The latter seem not simply opposed to alternative courses of action, but downright indignant to alterations of perspective and resolute to continue down the path of their “identity”. 

Why do we refuse to accept new thoughts or approaches, even when deeply rooted in logic and evidenced by real life outcomes?

The brain doesn’t like changing its mind.

Our ideas are tethered to, “Our Identity”.

We often rely on mental shortcuts that speed up our ability to make judgments, but this can sometimes lead to bias. There are many types of biases—including the confirmation bias, the hindsight bias, and the anchoring bias, just to name a few—that can influence our beliefs and actions daily.

Cognitive bias: a systematic thought process caused by the tendency of the human brain to simplify information processing through a filter of personal experience and preferences. The filtering process is a coping mechanism that enables the brain to prioritize and process large amounts of information quickly. Thus, making decisions based on beliefs or previous experiences.

Our brains employ some 180 biases and three most common/prevalent are

confirmation bias, the hindsight bias, and the anchoring bias. 

-Confirmation bias: the tendency of people to favor information that confirms or strengthens their beliefs or values and is difficult to dislodge once affirmed. 

-Hindsight bias: the common tendency for people to perceive past events as having been more predictable than they were. 

-Anchoring bias: where we hold onto the first thing we learn about something. 

Now keep in mind (pun intended) that you operate on these and 177 other biases, or in other words, “reasoning filter shortcuts” to formulate your opinion on a matter. Freeing yourself from your biases and leveling up will likely require an abandonment of the old identity.

Unless you are ready to change your identity, you will be tethered to your past biases, habits, and ways of thinking. 

The cool part about your identity and biases? 

You can change them.


Identity your biases.

Take a moment to realize the things that are holding you back.

Where do you want to be?

Who do you want to be?

Adopt a new identity. 

Adopt the identity of the person you want to be.

BEE consistent with CHANGE and embrace the unknown possibilities that present themselves as you make your habits congruent with the identity of who you want to be.

IE: You want to be healthier and more active, that is to say, “FIT”.

Title dictates behavior.

Re-Label yourself as a fit person. 

What does a FIT person do?

-Lift weights 3-6 days per week, consistently.

-Eat 20-50 grams of protein at every meal to get to about 1 gram of protein daily per pound of bodyweight. 

-Consume 32 ounces of water upon waking.

-walk 30 minutes per day (good to break into 3-4 walks). 

-practice gratitude. 

-embrace optimism.

-journal your thoughts (5 minutes + per day)

-Read (no limit)

-minimize time on social media (or none, because honestly, what good does it bring you? Besides this post, haha).

-Belong to the nicest gym you can afford (your environment means a lot & training around other driven individuals is as contagious as being surrounded by undriven people= surround yourself with winners).

Are you ready to identify your biases, assess, and commit to a new identity?
