⚡️ Trick without the treat

To: Society Members

Good Morning!

Not to be overly cocky or anything but we would describe this week’s issue as life-changing. Transformational some would say.

New Identity, Who Dis?

Our parents weren’t totally wrong when they told us, “you can be whatever your heart desires!” Most of us probably can’t be astronauts or NBA players, but we can become the type of person we strive to be by basing our habits around it.

Here is a diagram of how our identity (who we choose to be) will affect our processes (the actions we take), which will eventually affect our outcomes (results).

No one says it better than James Clear: “The more you repeat a behavior, the more you reinforce the identity associated with that behavior.” Embracing the right identity is the first step to attaining your desired results.

Extra Brownie Points for You

Take healthy eating as an example. People who are “healthy” would usually say no to a brownie. If you want to be a healthy person, you need to identify as a healthy eater. Once you identify as such, your actions will now be shaped by your identity. AKA, you will say no to the brownie, getting closer to your desired results.

Trick, Without the Treat

It’s really trickery for your brain. Imagine every time someone offered you a Juul hit, you said: “I realllly want one but, I’m trying to cut down but man would I love that right now.” Eventually, you will give in because, at your core, you still feel like someone who would take a hit. Instead, maybe you say “I don’t Juul, but thank you”. Point blank. You no longer debate it and the temptation leaves your system. You stop thinking about your craving and you move on from this mundane event. Also, it saves your friends a boring lecture about why you aren’t Juuling tonight.

If you want to be someone who meditates, you will no longer debate whether or not you will do it each morning. You can’t call yourself a meditator if you don’t meditate. Meditate. Meditate. Meditate. That word is starting to sound weird. Let’s move on.

Who do you want to be, {{ first_name|default:” }}?

Here is James Clear’s Two-Step Process for becoming that person:

1) Decide the type of person you want to be.

2) Prove it to yourself with small wins.

Act like your identity: readers read, runners run, meditators meditate and THS readers read THS.

“It’s quite simple actually. You are just acting like the type of person you already believe yourself to be.Fundamentally, [habits] are not about having something. They are about becoming someone. Your identity emerges out of your habits. Every action is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”

– James Clear

Enhance your morning routine with Station Cold Brew. It’s delicious coffee at the right ~cool~ temperature, without all the sugar and artificial ingredients you would usually settle for on-the-go. Save time, money, and your taste buds. Cut the sugar (sorry @Starb) and support local.

If you’re happy you subscribed to THS, your SCB subscription will not disappoint. I mean, a marvelous read every Monday is one thing, but cold brew sitting at your doorstep—well that’s a whole other bean game.

Station Cold Brew is not a normal cold brew. They’re a cool cold brew. They understand what makes coffee so… so… y’know, life-changing. Whether you want a divine cold drip concentrate, oat milk lattes, or cold brew cans for on-the-go, SCB will be your BFF.
