Crypto Beadles and Mr. Herman discuss and delve more into detail about this concept and book in the video below:
“I’ve been through some hard stuff of my own and I understand the things that drive people are often complex and nuanced. Although I’m known for being brutally honest and often tough on my clients, I’m also deeply empathetic and compassionate because I know how important it is to not treat everyone like a nail, just because you’re a hammer.” ~ Todd Herman
The interview starts with Mr. Herman discussing how he went from a 10,000-acre farm in Alberto, Canada, to where he is today. He explained how he used sports to get him off the farm. Individual and team sports were encouraged to build mental toughness. As seen with many successful people, Mr. Herman discusses how he had two mentors, how he found them, and how they became his mentors. Jim Rohn and Harvey Dorfman are both influential in the mental side of success. Having them both as mentors, one could see how life-changing it could be.
Mr. Herman and Beadles next discuss The Alter Ego Effect. Herman shares how many athletes and successful people create almost like a separate character or identity that holds the desired traits they want which they then use on the field or the stage to give them an edge. Herman goes on to explain “enclothed cognition” and how people believe certain traits about others who wear specific clothing. The example he uses is if someone comes into a room with a white lab coat. Many people may unconsciously feel this person may be successful, trusted, knowledgeable, etc. If a person were to put on the white lab coat themselves, they would unintentionally take on some of those traits. Watching interviews with actors will give some of the same feedback. Many actors feel the final physical aspects of a character come out once they have the wardrobe in place.
Mr. Herman goes on to explain how we all have different roles in life and how taking specific characteristics that would benefit that area and adding them into an alter ego can be beneficial. Over the years, in psychology, thoughts about single self versus many selves theories have shifted. This shift ties back to the Alter Ego Effect as well since a person may not want the boxing ring version of themselves when they are at home with their children. Mr. Herman gives many examples of how this principle can be used in everyday life.
