You may have heard of alter egos before. For example, Beyonce has Sasha Fierce when she goes on stage. It’s almost as if she becomes someone else. An alter ego gives you power, confidence, courage, and bravery to do things that you are afraid of.
The alter ego you should be focusing on is the future version of yourself. The one who has already been through the tough times, learned the lessons, and came out on top by conquering fears. This is the alter ego you should be embodying when you’re faced with something difficult or scary. Pull from her strength and unwavering belief that everything will work out.
What’s most interesting about this concept is you aren’t trying to be someone you’re not. You’re just becoming the future version of yourself.
You might be wondering how you become the future version of yourself. Here are the three steps to becoming her.
