SIX WOMEN IN ONE
Who are you? Do you really know? Are you the same person all the time? Or, do you do an identity switch depending on the circumstances or the people you are with?
Don’t worry. If you answered yes to the identity switch question, that’s a good thing. Unless of course, you’re not aware of it, or you do it to manipulate and fool people. That kind of identity switch is not healthy or ethical.
Meet Madelyn Wilkinson, today’s smart, funny, passionate, compassionate podcast guest. She’s a master of the identity switch. In her case, it means that she is evolving, self-aware, and not afraid of change. In other words, she is always growing and intensely alive.
Madelyn has identified and nurtured six personality traits in herself that have developed into independent characters or personas. Each one shows up when it is most appropriate for her to show up.
This episode is an excellent and unique example of “changing your story.”
You may be thinking that we all act differently in different situations. Most of us do. But Madelyn takes the identity switch a step further. Her different personas have different wardrobes, thoughts, emotions, and actions. That may sound like trickery to you. It isn’t at all. It’s about giving yourself permission to be fully present and authentic in all situations.
Listen to Madelyn’s entertaining, revealing, thought provoking story. Here are a few highlights:
- Madelyn’s secret for creating magic in her world
- The persona that delights children and inspires them to grow
- Who Madelyn is as a secret agent
- The freedom of switching from childlike innocence to bold sultry confidence
- The friendly battle between Madelyn’s different personas
