087: Are Superheroes Real?

Are superheroes real?

We're not talking about the web-flinging, cape-wearing, spandex-clad ones we see in movies. We're referring to our internal superheroes, our performance alter egos.

In this episode of Brain in the Game, we explore how alter egos impact athletes and coaches. 

We step through: 

  • Why do we feel the need to create alter egos — why do so many performers create an alter ego to overcome nerves and feel more confident in their abilities, such as Beyoncé's Sasha Fierce.
  • The primary role of an alter ego — it’s not what most people think!
  • How they are created — creating an alter ego is not merely about choosing a name and adopting a persona.
  • What we must be cautious of in creating our own — while striving for high performance, we must understand that the alter ego's purpose is not to be flawless.
