Is being yourself truly 'enough'? What if there were multiple versions of you that you could access to perform at your best, depending on the situation? I recently shared a video on this topic and received some skepticism (fair pushback) regarding the idea of creating an 'Alter Ego'.

In this episode, we explore your questions about authenticity and peak performance.
