Do you feel like you are an imposter when trying to change your life circumstances? Do you get a promotion or reach a level of success only to fear you are fooling yourself and others? In this episode, we explore the psychology of the “Persona,” or the mask we wear to fit in socially, and how this function of our ego helps us survive but also limits us. We explore:

  • How projection works and how it is a false sense of reality
  • How to recognize the conditioned limitations of the persona and transcend the ego for transformation
