Ryan A Bush is a thinker and designer focused on building better systems, better people, and a better future. As founder of Designing the Mind, Ryan’s central purpose is to provide wisdom education and expand human potential beyond the norm. He’s written multiple bestselling books like “Designing the Mind: The Principles of Psychitecture,” built life-changing programs like “The Anxiety Algorithm,” and launched “Mindform,” the world’s first psychitecture collective and training platform. Through his books, programs, and community, Ryan integrates the insights of ancient and modern thinkers to form a new vision for psychological growth and self-mastery.

 After spending over a decade researching the psychology and philosophy of well-being, and even writing his first book on the topic, it took struggling with his own mental health for Ryan A Bush to integrate the data studied to form a groundbreaking new psychological theory. “Become Who You Are” argues that the peak form of human happiness is determined, not by pleasure or pain, loss or gain, but by the admirability we observe in our own behaviors.

 “Our overall well- being does not correspond to the surface-level events…But it corresponds perfectly to something else— something going on beneath the surface of our external outcomes.” This philosophy-infused self-development guide takes readers on a kaleidoscopic journey through Stoic philosophy and neuropsychology—Nietzschean virtue ethics and evolutionary psychology—spiritual wisdom and psychotherapy. It offers a moving account of Ryan’s own descent into depression, his climb back to flourishing, and the ambitious new framework this journey led him to that we can use to decode and direct our lives.
