Only a change in identity creates a lasting result. Adjustments in action and behaviour will slowly creep back in line with however you define yourself. Great example. Here’s a guy who got in shape for a movie (behaviour level) but he defines himself as an actor not a bodybuilder (identity level) and so the behaviour will not be maintained. The Spartan workout was all the rage around the time that movie came out, everybody wanted to know the secrets of how the actors got so ripped… so does it work? well initially yes, but in the long term behaviour is irrelevant … only identity works. Compare that to The Rock who does not exercise for movie roles (behaviour), The Rock IS a bodybuilder (identity). big difference
Action vs. Identity
