A top performance expert reveals the secret behind many top athletes and executives: creating a heroic alter ego to activate when the chips are down.
Theres only one person in the way of you unleashing your potential: you. Theres also one person who can move you out of the way so you can perform at your peak.
That person is already inside you. You just need to unlock them. This other part of you is your alter ego. After 21 years of working with elite athletes, performers, and leaders, Todd Herman has discovered how you can use your alter ego to achieve the seemingly impossible. It all clicked for Todd when he met Bo Jackson.
When Herman met Bo Jackson, the professional athlete told him, Bo Jackson never played a down of football in his entire life. Bo explained that when he was young, hed get into trouble because of chaos caused by his anger issues. Then, he saw Friday the 13th and became fascinated by the cold, calculating nature of Jason Voorhees. In that moment, he resolved to stop being Bo Jackson and start being Jason the moment he stepped on the field.
In this transformative guide, Herman teaches you how to create and control an alter ego like Bo – and the thousands of other athletes, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who have used this simple tool to change their lives. Herman also shares his own story: He knew that inside was a confident, self-assured, intelligent person who could help others get better results in their lives. When he started using Supermans classic trick – putting on a pair of glasses – he learned to trigger the specific traits he needed to achieve his goals.
TheAlter Ego Effectis not about creating a false mask – its about finding the hero already inside you. Its a proven way of overcoming the self-doubt, negativity, and insecurity that hold you back and empowering you to ultimately become your best self.
