Episode 22
14m | Jan 26, 2024

Ever felt like there's a part of you holding back, whispering cautions and fears into your ear? That's the Protector, the voice that aims to keep us safe but often at the cost of our full potential. Contrastingly, the Projector represents our bolder, more outspoken self, pushing us to expand our comfort zones and embrace the unknown.

In this riveting episode of the Love Not Fear podcast, join hosts David Henzel and Eduard Brink as they delve into the compelling concept of the 'Protector' versus 'Projector' within us all. Through their engaging discussion, David and Eduard explore how we can identify and balance these inner voices to transform our lives. They bring in fascinating insights from SpeakerLab's, and even touch upon the power of alter egos to demonstrate how adopting a new persona can empower us to overcome deep-rooted fears.

But it's not just about creating a new self. As David shares from his personal journey and the inspiring lessons from the book, "The Alter Ego Effect," it's about integrating these aspects to be a more authentic, fearless version of ourselves. Eduard brings the conversation full circle by discussing how we can practically apply these concepts in everyday situations, from public speaking to personal relationships.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to break free from the shackles of fear and self-doubt. So, tune in, as we embark on this thought-provoking journey from the confines of the Protector to the liberating realm of the Projector. Where do you stand in this inner debate? Let's find out together in this episode of Love Not Fear.

"The new you is the old alter ego." Eduard Brink

In Today’s Episode:

  • The protector is the voice of fear that keeps us in our comfort zone, while the projector is the voice of boldness and expansion.
  • Adopting a projector alter ego can help us overcome fear and step outside of our comfort zones.
  • Affirmations can be a powerful tool to calm the protector and shift our mindset from fear to love.
  • Surrounding ourselves with the right people who push boundaries and inspire us can help us overcome our own fears and limitations.
  • Prioritizing tasks and using time blocking techniques can help us manage our time effectively and accomplish our goals.

"Projector reminds me that everything you want is on the other side of fear." David Henzel
