MM057 - Former NFL Player Anthony Trucks: What Do You Do When Your Identity is Suddenly Taken Away?


Anthony Trucks is a former NFL superstar, author, American Ninja Warrior, and Founder of Modifidentity. Modifidentity is a coaching company that aims to help individuals find their real purpose in life and become who they want to be by employing identity modifications. He credits who he is today to the kind of rough upbringing he had experienced, particularly when he was given away when he was just three years old.


Anthony joins me today to share his story, his experiences growing up, and what made him choose to start his business. He describes what an identity shift is and how it factors into unlocking our true potential. He explains how his coaching program works and who qualifies for them. Anthony also shares some of the struggles he experienced in life and how he overcame them.




“Identity shift is the root of who you are, what program runs your brain that allows you to operate as you operate on autopilot.” - Anthony Trucks
