The Jim Fortin Podcast – E39 – Do You Have It In You


You’re listening to episode number 39 of the
Transform Your Life from the inside out podcast. And this episode, I’m going to talk about
what’s in you. Now, by the title, it may seem like this is
a rah, rah, you can do it, you’ve got the grit, you’ve got the determination, etc, kind
of podcast, but it’s not keep listening. Hi, I’m JimFortin. And you’re about to start
Transforming Your Life from the Inside Out with this Podcast. I’m widely considered a leader in subconscious
transformation. And I’ve coached super achievers all around the world for over 25 years. Here, you’re going to find no rah rah motivation,
and no hype. Because this podcast is a combination of Brain
Science, transformational psychology, and ancient wisdom all rolled into one to take
your life to levels, you’ve never thought possible. If you’re wanting a lot more in life, to feel
better, to heal, to have peace of mind, to feel powerful, alive, and to bring more abundance
and prosperity into your life. And this Podcast is for you. Because you’re going to start learning how
to master your mind and evolve your consciousness. And when you do that, anything you want, then
becomes possible for you. I’m glad you’re here. Okay, so in the introduction, I said What’s
in You? And I also said, you know, in the introduction, many people, when people will
say, Well, you know, do you have it in you? Many
times you’re talking about, as I said, grit and determination and the iron wheel? And are you going to make it happen? You know,
are you going to put your nose to the grindstone? Or are you going to get through, etc. But
that’s not what I mean, in this podcast. So let’s make this really simple. So I know
I’ve probably asked you this before. And the reason I have is because it’s such a powerful
metaphor, but a couple of questions. When you squeeze an orange, what do you get?
Well, obviously, you get orange juice. What about when you squeeze a lemon? What do you get? You get a lemon? So the question
that I have for you, because see what comes out of the orange and the lemon is what’s
in the orange, or the lemon? But what about you, metaphorically, if I were
to squeeze you, what would come out of you. And I do mean mentally, I don’t mean physically
or any of that. But I mean, mentally, what would come out of you. So let me give you
an example here. The Dalai Lama once said that, you cannot
be angry. If there is no anger in you. The whole point of this episode is you cannot
be unhappy. If there is no one happiness in you, you cannot
be unhealthy. If there is no unhealthiest and you, there’s
an ancient phrase, and it’s pretty simple. And it goes like this healthy mind, healthy
body. So also, you cannot be and I wanted, you know,
spend a lot of time in this podcast, because this pertains to a lot of you. But about what it pertains to you is money,
money consciousness, and you cannot be poor, or paycheck to paycheck, or struggling for
money. If that is not in you, something I want her. And by the way, let me back up here. And I’m
kind of fumbling here. Because as you know, I don’t use notes, I
don’t make notes for these, I just sit down and I start talking. But I know that what’s in me, and this is
something that I say a lot to myself is if I don’t have it on the inside, I won’t have
it on the outside. What that means is obviously, if I don’t have it, you know, in my self-image, I won’t have it and the external world. But
yet, all the other speakers out there, for the most part, most of them are telling you,
you know what, you’ve got to go out there and you’ve got
to hustle, and you’ve got to grind it out. And you’ve got to work and all these kinds
of things, which are all external things. This is why millions and millions if not billions,
of people, they’re working from the wrong part of the equation. They’re working from the doing, and not to
being something that was once said to me, and it kind of like just hit me, you know,
hit me like a two by four right between the eyes. And I sat with us for a long time when it
was said to me, and it was a very simple phrase. And it said, What’s in you is at your service,when
I heard that, it just stopped me in my tracks. And I remember just thinking about it, and
pondering and musing and being introspective with it for hours after I heard it. And even years later, that’s very powerful.
So let’s look at this for a second. If anger is in you, angers is At your service,
if health is in you, meaning in terms of your self-image and your unconscious identity, well, then it’s at your service. If poverty
consciousness is in you, well, then that is that your service. If wealth consciousness
is in you, then that also is at your service. So we have to be really careful about what
is in us. Because what is in us plays out in our external world. Also, whatever is in you, serves you to the
degree that it is in you, it plays out in your life, to the degree to which it is in
you as well. So by now, and you know, you hear me talking a lot of podcast, let’s look
at your bank account. Now, if you’re driving, obviously, I tell you all the time, you know,
pay attention to the road and do not do what I’m asking you to do. But but maybe you just
checked your bank, meaning physical things are writing down or whatever. But you know,
have you checked your bank account the last couple of days? What is in your bank account?
Consider that what is in your bank account? Because what is in your bank account is in
you see, because your bank account is a reflection of you. What about your health? And you know, the
interesting thing is, and I don’t know why I think I do but I don’t know why is that
so many people value money and external things over their own health, and they put their
own health second, when people enroll mytransformational programs, stop that whole sentence start again,
when people enroll in my transformational programs, I will ask them to pick one major
thing to work on whether health or money. And I remember one time this woman said you
know what I’m focused on my seven figure business, that is the most important thing to me. Yet
she was 100 pounds overweight. And you know, it’s not my place to judge about her weight
or and that’s her thing that’s, you know, her her thing. Those are things that she has
to work on. But obviously being 100 pounds overweight has a serious stress on the body.
And about three quarters of the way through the program. She said you know what? You are
right Jim, I should have focused on my health and not on my business. But so many people
actually focus on money, as opposed to your health. And if you don’t have good health,
then guess what the money that many people are chasing becomes even harder to chase.
Because it’s a lot easier to metaphorically and I’m just kidding. Here, it’s a lot easier
to chase money if you’re trim and fit than it is, you know, being 100 pounds overweight. And obviously, you know, I’m kidding about
that, because I don’t advocate that we chase money, because money is actually a matter
of what you probably heard you know, me say here, I think it’s Episode Number nine, when
I talk about the Law of Attraction, money is a matter of actually thought and feeling
and vibration and frequency. So we don’t have to chase anything, we just have to be it on
the inside. You know Sun Tzu, he said something that basically
reflects everything I want to share with you in this particular episode. And he said “Victorious
warriors win first, and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first, and then
seek to win.” So in your own life, what we try to do many times, many, many, many and
probably most of you have tried to do and, again, I’ve been there is we’re not what we
actually want to be in the external world and our internal world first, we’re not wealthy
in our consciousness, we’re not wealthy in our mind. And that’s like actually going to
battle. And you know what you actually try to win
when you get there. But you can’t win when you get there, because you’re already a defeated
warrior. So that’s why and I know I’ve said, you know, in the first couple of episodes,
and this is a thread that runs all the way through the podcast, each and every week and
some form is that we have to be at first. So when we talk about, you know, your bank,
and your health, and all this kind of stuff, and your money and all these things in your
external world. What is your subconscious identity? Also, I’ve had people say before, and I know
I’ve said this, but I’ll say it again. And the reason I say it again, is because you
know what I will say things at different times in different episodes. And you might hear
it differently when I say at one time, or one time when I say you’re distracted, or
you know what you’re listening to the radio or thinking about your next appointment, or
the kids at home or the dog sick or whatever, and you hear it but you don’t hear it. And
as well. Part of that is that your brain filters it out. The brain literally actually filters
out a large degree of information that’s not consistent with your unconscious identity.
So even if I said, Well, I’ll say it actually is that you can be a millionaire very, very
easily. Or you can be healthy, or you can be wealthy, or you can be in great relationships. If you currently actually, you know, you don’t
have that in your unconscious identity. Notice how you’re already arguing or filtering that
out. Because for example, let’s talk about money. And the reason that I talk about money
a lot is because so many people struggle with it and don’t have it. I mean, in Middle America
right now, there are many Americans that struggle between paying their health care and paying
their mortgage. But the great thing about talking about money is it’s tangible. I mean,
you can look in your bank account and see there’s $100, there’s 10 million. I mean,
it’s very tangible. But when I talk about confidence, and in different ways of being
those things are intangible, and they’re harder for people to get their mind around. But the
question is this, let’s go back to this when it comes to to your health and your wellness.
What is your subconscious identity? Now, many people will say things like, Well,
you know, Jim, if my you know, if you say it’s subconscious, and my identity is subconscious,
well, then how do I know what it is? Easy, because your external world, meaning your
bank account, your physical health, the home that you live in the car that you drive, and
your relationships are all your subconscious identity, which actually precede your belief
systems. It’s your subconscious identity, objectified, meaning that if you want to know
what you believe about the world, everything about the world and banking and money and
health and finance and relationships, that’s really, really easy. Look at your external world, because that
is a reflection of your internal world. Now, obviously, here, I’m talking about identity.
And you’ve heard me say, for probably the past four or five podcast, Mark your calendar
for September the fourth, because I’m going to be doing a no charge online training that
afternoon. And I’m going to actually put a lot of pieces together for you about literally
the way that I sequence thinking to transform people’s subconscious identity. And there’s
no charge for that. But again, that’s going to be on September, the fourth and there’ll
be more details coming later. But Mark your calendar for September the fourth, because
I’m going to be doing a training again, that’s going to show you how when I work with people,
how I sequence their thought processes, to assist them and creating the kind of identity
they need, at the unconscious level to create the outcomes they want in the external world. So by this point, it’s obvious that everything
that you do, and this is really hard for a lot of us to get our mind around. I mean,
it’s pretty grandiose when you think about it, but everything, not some things. But everything
that you do is part of your identity. I was hanging out with my family last night, and
there was a person. Well, there is a person in my family who used to be a vegetarian for
many years. And I was talking to her about that last night. And I didn’t talk to her
about identity or any of that. Now she eats red meat. But at one point, she was a air
quote person who was a vegetarian. And so because she was a person who was a vegetarian,
she did that and in her behavior. So as I was saying that everything in your life, everything.
You know, I don’t know where you are right now. So let me keep on going here. If you’re
at the gym, and you’re on the treadmill, do you finish strong? Do you finish hard? Do
you finish what you commit to? Or do you know that you run for like five minutes you like,
and I’m done. I’m going to go downstairs to the sauna. That’s reflection of your identity. You know, if you’re in the car right now,
and you’re driving, are you driving like a bat out of hell? Or are you driving like an
old lady? You know, what kind of car do you drive, that’s a reflection of your identity.
You know, I’ve said before I drive a Porsche, that’s a reflection of my identity. Because
you know what, it’s not about the money or even if people think courses prestigious or
whatever, I don’t care about any of that. That’s not why I bought the car. part of my
identity has always been, I love to drive. And I love to drive fast cars. So I have the Porsche because it’s a reflection
of my identity. You might even have, you know, what, what are those? the Prius. And by the
way, I am a huge, huge, like, I don’t know if I can justify that. I am very, very mindful
of conservation. I mean, I’m careful with the water in the house, I don’t leave it on
. You know, if I don’t need to, I recycle everything. And for the most part other than
my Porsche, I do what I can to reduce my footprint. What’s it called the co2, the carbon footprint?
There we go. But But look at your life right now. Seriously, wherever you are in your life. I mean, are you watching TV? You know, five
hours a day? Are you working yourself into the ground? I mean, literally, are you working
60 hours a week? Are you not showing up at all? Are you playing games all day long? You
know, online? Are you addicted to gambling? Do you not gamble at all? sex? Do you have
sex? That’s a big thing. As a matter of fact, it’s, it’s amazing to me. It’s interesting
to me, they put it that way the amount of and by the way, people don’t talk about their
sex lives in public. But it’s interesting to me the amount of unhealthy sex lives that
people have. I mean, literally the amount of relationships that go for extended amounts
of time, with no sex, but it’s not the sex, it’s the intimacy and the connection. But
a lot of people don’t have you look at your money. Well, your money’s reflection, which is very
clear at this point, it’s a very, it’s a reflection of your identity. Look at your relationships.
Do you have to be in a relationship? do you avoid relationships? Have you never been in
the relationship? Do you clean the relationships? Are you afraid to leave relationships? Look
at your anger. You know, I’ve never been no one that knows me can ever say they have seen
me yell or scream at anyone. It’s just not my way at all to yell or scream at anyone
and I wouldn’t allow it to happen. But do you yell at? You know, do you yell and scream
at people? Do you? Do you allow people to yell and scream at you? And then look at love?
You know? What are your interpretations about it? Do you have it? Do you not have it? And
do you have self love? So I went through a lot of stuff there. But I really want you
to really get your teeth into, you know, everything. Just take your time with us. Everything that
you have in your life is a reflection of your identity. Now speaking of identity, the definition
of of identity is a state or a nature, or the nature of being who you are. Okay, so
let’s use an example about who you are. If you’re broke, if you have no money, that has
nothing to do with what you do, everyone thinks that it does, but it doesn’t, because see
who you do is reflection of who you are. But if you don’t have any money, or you’re struggling
with money, that has nothing to do with the external world, that has to do with who you
are. Now, let me share a simple example that I
use all the time. And actually, you’ve probably heard me talk about smoking and Diet Coke
before, because they’re very tangible, very real examples. And remember, someone actually
wrote in and said, can you use different examples except smoking and Diet Coke? Well, I could
use a bazillion examples. I mean, what if you’re eating Cheetos every day or hohos or
ding dongs or there’s it just doesn’t matter? I mean, it’s just an example of apply your
own value here. But let’s let’s go to smoking for a second. Now I want to ask you, and this
will just this will bring it home for you. Did you smoke any cigarettes today? Very simple
answer. Yes, I did smoke or no, I didn’t smoke. Okay, here’s where we bring it home. If you
see smoke cigarettes today, which is a behavior, that means for the most part, I mean, this
might have been the first day you ever smoked a cigarette, I don’t know. But for the for
the most part, you know where I’m going here. If you smoke cigarettes today, then most likely
like a 99.99% chance you are a smoker and your identity. Because what we do in our identity
is what we do and our behavior. So if you smoked cigarettes today, you are
a smoker. If you did not smoke cigarettes today, which is a behavior, then in your identity.
For the most part unless you’re electro you know, air quote trying to quit today, then
you are a nonsmoker. Now, I want to go somewhere that for a second, what I want to point out
here is that people, we tend to actually just think very simply one dimensionally A lot
of times, but I want you to look at those two examples, because you can be listening
and you’re like, Well, no, I didn’t, I didn’t smoke today. Or I did smoke today. Notice
that smoking or not smoking is a reflection of identity. But let’s go to your health and
wellness. Did you eat well today and healthy, or did
you not eat healthy today, because I know people that actually have the identity of
a very healthy person, and they would not in a million years, put it you know, Kentucky
Fried Chicken in their mouth or Cheetos or Doritos or whatever. Why because in their
identity, they are a healthy person. So hopefully that brings it home for you because we’re
talking about smoking or Diet Coke or whatever. But what you do, is what you are. Now here’s
the kicker. Let’s go a little further with the example of smoking. Notice, if you are
a smoker, it was very easy for you to smoke a cigarette. What I mean is, you know in your identity,
you identify as a smoker, you did not have to fight yourself, you did not have to work
to make yourself smoke. And the same thing if you are a nonsmoker, because most of you
probably the majority, I don’t know percentages, but the majority of you are non-smokers. Notice
that being a nonsmoker, you didn’t have to fight yourself, you didn’t have to force yourself
not to smoke. It just happened naturally. So the whole point is, is whatever you are
in your identity, it happens automatically. And it happens naturally. Doesn’t have anything to do with the external
world. So if you are broke in your identity, it happens automatically. And easily. And
your external world. If you are wealthy and your identity, then you literally because
you were being that you do things that actually bring that kind of wealth and attract that
into your life. And it happens easily and naturally. Hopefully, that for you guys right
there. Hopefully that is like a big aha, when you get that, you know, what, if I am poor
and my mind, but I try to go do things to make money, then it’s going to be hard, because
I am not that thing. Just like the example I gave you about smoking, if you were a nonsmoker,
that you know, then it’s hard to smoke. But if you’re actually poor in your mind, then
it’s going to be very, very, very hard to be wealthy. Why? Because you are not that,
you know, simple phrase, and you may have heard me say before is that it’s easy to do
what you are. And it’s hard to do what you are not. So it’s easy to be healthy, if you were that
in your mind. And it’s hard to be healthy, if you are not that in your mind. So let’s
apply this, I want you to think right now, I want you to think about what is the number
one thing that you want in your life that you do not currently have. Take a second with
that. And for many of you again, it’s going to go right back to one of two places, money
or health. What’s the number one thing that you want in your life right now that you do
not have? Okay, here is and I know that I’ve asked this before, but you know, what? we,
as human beings, and I am not exempt from this, we as human beings, sometimes it takes
us a long time to learn things. I mean, we we can hear something like eight times, and
we kind of think we, you know, we get it. And that ninth time, we’re like, oh my god,
you know, palm the forehead, I get it. And being transparent with you guys. You’ve heard me if you’ve been with me for
any amount of time, you know that my brother in law is a Shaman that I’ve worked with he’s
mentored me for literally like 24 years now. And last night when I was with him, I read
to him an email that he wrote to me in 2001. And last night, I said, You know what, you
wrote this to me, I guess what is that, you know, 19 years ago or whatever, I don’t know,
part of my identity is I’m not good in Math. Anyway, I reading the email that was extremely
profound. And I said, You know what, even after all these years, I still don’t comprehend
all this. And I’m just like you I’m working. I’m learning my lessons. But I’m learning
different lessons and a lot of people because of the nature of apprenticing with a shaman
and working with a shaman. However, we’re all learning things. So that’s why at some
point, some of you guys might be saying, for crying out loud, I wish some of you guys would
get it, or Hurry up or speed up. But you know what, everyone’s at their own pace and their
own place. And, you know, be compassionate and be patient, you know, listening right
now, wherever you are. Because I promise you, if you’re sitting here saying, Oh, I got this,
I got the health and wellness. Well, you know what, I know this, there’s other places in
your identity where you’re not getting it, but you’re not seeing it because you have
the things that you think that I’m talking about right now. So be compassionate. But
the question that I have for you is this for all of you. And I guess where I was going with this is
you could say Oh, you know, I made a million a year or 2 million whatever. But you know,
what, if you’re, if you want it, and it doesn’t, you know, it’s up to you, you don’t have to
want it doesn’t matter. We all have different values. But what if, for example, you’re making
2 million a year, but you actually are lonely, and you have no relationship and you can’t
sustain a relationship. So what I want to ask all of you is what identity, what identity
what I need to be to have X, Y, Z in my life. Consider that What identity what I need to have to have
XYZ in my in my life. Because I asked you just a couple of minutes ago, I do believe
I asked you is what is the one thing that you want that you don’t have? If you don’t
have it, it’s because you were not that and you were not that at an unconscious identity
level. So ask yourself and write this down. And you know, post it on the refrigerator
or your screen or a sticky note or somewhere, but what identity, what I need to be to be
the number one salesperson in my office, or, you know, if you’re in sales, but here, you
know where I’m going with this, what identity what I need to be if I were to be perfectly
healthy, or if I could run five miles every day, or if I could be really good at playing
the piano, or if I could be wealthy or whatever it is for you. So the question the $64,000
question, and actually, that’s, that’s a it’s a lot more valuable than $64,000. But the
question is this, what identity what I need to be or have to have? blank? And what goes
in the blank is what you’re wanting to create. So the transformational takeaway is, if you
don’t have it on the outside, it’s because you’re not yet that on the inside. So the
question is, which this whole podcast is about What’s in you? And if you don’t have it on
the outside, it’s not in you on the inside. Okay, the next episode, we’re going to do
something a little different next week, and we’re going to give it a whirl and see how
it works. But the next episode on Monday, instead of q&a, it’s going to be called something
like my transformational story. And what I’m going to do is I’m going to invite people
from my transformational coaching program, to sit down and visit with me about how they
have to significantly transform their life. The first person that I’m interviewing her
name is Jennifer. And the reason I’m doing this is because I can do this podcast all
day long. And you know what, you can listen to me. And it may resonate. And then sometimes
you know what, this is what I’ve noticed by doing transformational coaching, and then
having actually many times have my coaches actually, not just coach people, but do some
some live training for me is that I can say something 10 times, and then one of my coaches
will say it in a live coaching. And for some reason, it just hits home with people. But the reason why it’s not some reason I
know the reason is I’ve been doing this a lot of years, and even my coaches who have
been with me for you know, almost a couple of years now, all of them, they put their
own spin on the content, like like you’re learning here in the podcast. And when they
put their own spin on it. Many times people are like, yep, I can see myself in their eyes,
I can see myself, you know, and I can see myself in their life and everything. So we’re
going to do a transformational story next Monday with Jennifer. And, as you’ll hear,
when she came into my programs, she will tell you that she was so depressed, that she couldn’t
even get out of bed. And I also want to point out that I do not diagnose, I am not a psychotherapist,
I’m not a licensed counselor, or any of that I do not diagnose or dispense psychological,
you know, counseling or any of that. But we talked about that in the interview. But she’s
going to talk to you about how she literally went from a place of not even wanting to get
out of bed to a place of enjoying and creating a very, very happy life. And it’s going to
be her story. I mean, I asked her a few questions here and there, but you’re going to hear her
story, you know, from her, and she’s going to tell you the steps that she went through,
that she started living from to create this new way of being for herself. So whatever
you do, make sure that you tune in and listen, and I’ll catch you on that podcast. Bye bye. Thank you for listening to this entire podcast.
