How were those alter egos different to the people who portrayed them?  If you could build the ideal person to become, what would you be able to achieve?  Now, make that person an alter ego, and slowly morph your life to become that person and outperform your former self.  Joining me today is Todd Herman. He is an accomplished author and sought-after coach, and today he’s going to be enlightening all of us on the magic of the alter ego, and giving steps for you to be able to accomplish anything in your life by simply using the creative imagination between your ears.

Alter Egos Are Tools for Mental Toughness with Todd Herman

The Dad Edge Podcast (formerly The Good Dad Project Podcast)

Todd Herman is a high-performance coach and is the best-selling author of the book The Alter Ego Effect: The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life. Over the past 20 years, Todd has worked with celebrities and professional athletes, of whom the majority of his clients are kept secret. In his book, Todd teaches us how alter egos work, how we create them in different aspects of our lives, and how to activate them to help us become the most effective businessmen, the most intentional husbands, and the most patient and present fathers. Alter egos help us find the real version of what we are capable of. This is due to the fact that you no longer care about people judging you for who you are. One thing Todd mentions is that there's only one person keeping you from your full potential and that's YOU.  According to Todd, the way to bypass fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs is through creating heroic alter egos. Todd's biggest aspect of coaching is mental toughness. He tells us the true definition of mental toughness which is, "Mental toughness is your ability to be flexible and adaptable despite what your circumstances are giving you right now."

58 — Todd Herman — The Alter Ego Effect: The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life

The Game Changing Attorney Podcast with Michael Mogill

"The reality is that human beings have all sorts of qualities, abilities, and traits available to us. But what ends up happening is because of this story and this narrative of who we think we are, we end up acting through the exact same person over and over again, telling us stories about what we think we can and cannot do. The Alter Ego is the thing that just allows these abilities to more freely come out of you so that you can truly kind of lead the life that you most want." - Todd Herman How can you employ the concept of the Alter Ego to achieve your goals? Who are some people who have utilized the Alter Ego method successfully? What's the one thing you can't coach? What are the Four Core Motivators? Coach of the YearTodd Herman is the founder of Upcoach and Herman Global Ventures, a WSJ best-selling author of “The Alter Ego Effect: The Power of Secret Identities to Transform Your Life,” and creator of the award-winning "90 Day Year" program for leadership and skills development. He has been coaching elite athletes, executives, and entrepreneurs for over two decades and has helped thousands through his work. In addition, HGV was named one of the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies in America.Through his work with Olympians and top athletes, Todd has developed a multitude of mental strategies to achieve peak performance, which he has brought to the world of business.Finding Your SupermanPerhaps the most notable of Todd's mental strategies is the Alter Ego Effect. After all, he wrote a whole book on it! In his career, Todd has seen that the narratives we construct about ourselves can be limiting. For example, if you don't consider yourself to be outgoing, how will you get onstage to deliver that keynote address?Todd recommends creating another version of yourself — one that is strong in the areas you lack — and activating it in times of need.Drawing on the science of enclothed cognition and other psychological phenomena, Todd explores how simply perceiving ourselves differently can have a measurable effect on our performance across a host of categories.Your Own Worst EnemyIn addition to the Alter Ego, Todd uses a concept called "The Enemy." This can be your ego, a negative idea of yourself, or the words of an old bully from your past. But at the root of it, it's the story or habits that get in your way as you pursue your goals. These maladaptive behaviors can seem amorphous and therefore insurmountable. One of Todd's methods is to give the Enemy a name and a form. By doing this, you contain these habits into something tangible that you can subsequently manage.You can't fight something until you can see it clearly.Key takeaways: You contain multitudes. Don't worry about being your "authentic self." There's no one single "you," and what you think you might be could limit what you become. You construct yourself. So often we feel at the whim of forces out of our control. But the thing you can always control is yourself and the six inches between your ears. The real deal. These strategies aren't just self-help platitudes. The idea of the Alter Ego goes back to the ancient Romans, and Todd's system is built off evidence-backed science.
