Creating an alter ego allows you to step out of those fears and doubts and activate your inner super power.


Let's dive into what an alter ego is, how it can make your life way more awesome, and how to bring it to life in a fun and relatable way!


What's an Alter Ego, Anyway?


An alter ego is like a special alter-ego version of yourself, with its own unique qualities and strengths. It's a way of expressing different parts of your personality that you might not show in your everyday life.


So, picture this: your alter ego is like your own personal superhero or rockstar version of yourself. It's the you that's braver, bolder, and more epic than you ever thought possible. Think of it as your very own secret identity, just waiting to be unleashed!


The Benefits of Embracing Your Alter Ego


Now, here's the fun part. Embracing your alter ego can be a game-changer in so many ways:

It gives you a Confidence Boost: Your alter ego can give you the confidence to tackle challenges and be the hero of your own story. It can give you the boost you need to tackle the tasks that your conscious mind may be afraid to take on.

It opens up your Creative Superpowers: It's like tapping into a whole new realm of creativity and imagination that lets you be whoever you want to be. It's not about being someone that you are not. It's about being the version of you behind all the doubts, limiting thoughts and fears your ego state presents to you.

It helps you Overcome Obstacles: When life throws curveballs, your alter ego can swoop in and help you face them head-on, like a true superhero.


Developing Your Alter Ego


To develop and activate an alter ego, consider the following steps:

The purpose of your alter ago: Determine the purpose of your alter ego. What do you want to accomplish and who do you need to become to accomplish this? This can help shape the characteristics and behaviors of your alter ego.

Dream up your alter ego: What would your alter ego be like? What's their name, style, and superpowers? Let your imagination run wild! Find a photo that represents them if you can (I like to have a photo handy in my phone, where I can connect with her daily).

Create a compelling backstory: Develop a backstory for your alter ego, providing depth and context to their character, making it easier for you to embody their persona. This allows you to have a deeper connecting with them, which will help you embody them fully.

Finding a trigger: Find something physical—a piece of jewelry, a special item of clothing, or even a small object—that represents your alter ego. When you see or touch this item, it can remind you to embody their qualities. You can even come up with a ritual or that can help you activate them. For example I wear a special necklace and then think about her essence and take a step forward saying "Let's do this". That activates her and I am ready to go.


Using Your Alter Ego in Everyday Life


Integrating your alter ego into your daily life involves consciously embodying the traits and mindset of your alter ego in various situations:


In challenging situations, imagine yourself stepping into the persona of your alter ego, embodying their confidence and resilience to tackle the specific task.

Use your alter ego as a tool for personal reinvention, allowing you to explore different aspects of your personality and behavior.

In professional settings, your alter ego can help you adopt a confident and assertive persona, enabling you to navigate challenges with poise. It can help you with things like asking for a raise, taking on projects, suggesting ideas, stepping into speaker roles.

• Your alter ego can help you take action on creating various things that you may have fear around such as creating a podcast, starting your Youtube channel, putting together a masterclass.

If you are someone that struggles with taking action and you procrastinate, activating your alter ego can help you overcome that and develop a healthy habit of taking action. You can activate them in the morning to help you overcome procrastination and get things done. You can have an alter ego that is a doer. You can even build an alter ego around this and call them Super Doer :)


Activating and Embodying your Alter Ego:


To activate your alter ego, immerse yourself in the persona by visualizing their traits, behaviors, and mindset. If you are choosing a non made up character, this can be done through reading about them, listening to their voice, watching videos, or looking at a photo of them.


Power Up with a Cool Trigger: Find something that triggers your alter ego—like a piece of jewelry, a special outfit, or even a secret handshake. This is your signal to activate superhero mode!

Practice Makes Perfect: Start practicing being your alter ego in different situations. It might feel a bit silly at first, but soon it'll feel totally natural and fun! Try to do this daily.

Behavioral Spot-Checking: Use your alter ego as a benchmark for your behavior. When faced with challenging moments, ask yourself how your alter ego would respond, helping you align your actions with their traits. Soon you will just become them and you wont even need a trigger.

Visualize Situational Moments: For example, for something like sports, activate your alter ego in situational moments, such as during a game or performance. Visualize yourself as your alter ego to enhance your performance.


Real-life Examples of Alter Egos


 Several prominent figures have utilized alter egos to enhance their creativity, confidence, and performance, here are just a few:
