Dr. Benjamin Hardy - Personality Isn't Permanent and Willpower Doesn't Work - Speaker Meeting 14
I was introduced to Dr. Hardy through a podcast that he was a guest on, called the Richie Norton Podcast. I was in the process of developing the idea of the Reco12 Speaker Meeting Podcast and his interview with Richie Norton (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-richie-norton-show/id1493699560?i=1000473674959) spoke the language of addiction and the powerlessness of willpower so clearly that I had to reach out to him right away and ask if he would be a guest speaker. I am so grateful that he has agreed to do this. Here is his bio:
Dr. Benjamin Hardy is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work and Personality Isn’t Permanent. His blogs have been read by over 100 million people and are featured on Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, Big Think, and many others. He is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today and from 2015-2018, he was the #1 writer in the world on Medium.com. He and his wife Lauren adopted three children through the foster system in February 2018 and, one month later, Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018.
Welcome to the Reco12 Speaker Meeting. We are an organization whose addictions include alcohol, drugs, lust and sex, food and gambling, just to name a few. We come together from all places, faiths and backgrounds to learn the similarities of addiction and to gain tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. We invite recovering addicts with at least 1 year sobriety and who are actively working their recovery in their respective fellowships to share their experience, strength and hope on a live Zoom meeting, each Friday at 12:00 pm central time, for 20-25 minutes. Then, we, the live audience, get the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker for another 20-25 minutes. If you are hearing this podcast recorded and would like to participate as a live audience member, or if you would like to be a guest speaker in a future meeting, please go to www.reco12.com to learn more and submit your email address there to receive weekly invitations.
