The Jim Fortin Podcast – E65 – The Biology Of Success


You’re listening to episode
number 65 of the Transform your Life from the Inside Out
podcast. This episode is titled the Biology of Success. And in
this episode I want to talk about actually not the biology
of success even though it’s titled that way. But I want to
talk to you about the neurology of success, which obviously
pertains to biology. Stay tuned. Hi, I’m Jim Fortin and you’re
about to start Transforming Your Life from the inside out with
this podcast. I’m widely considered the 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 and alive. bringing more abundance and prosperity
into your life. 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 this episode, I do
want to talk about, what I said the Biology of Success, but also
the Neurology of Success is perhaps a better way to say it.
And what I mean by that is that an entire marketing team and
somebody titled a video called the biology of success, and
without conferring with me at first, and really, obviously,
your brain is biology, but it’s neurology, and we want to talk
about the neurology of success. And I want to talk about habits,
which I’ve talked about in other episodes before, but yet I want
to put a different spin on it in this particular episode. Now, that being said, I
mentioned in the last episode that I was, came down with a
cold and I’m still shaking it. As well, I am on family
vacation. I’m in my home in Sedona, and I’ve got literally
like 10 people here and kids and dogs and the whole shebang, and
more noise in this house. If any of you have been on a large
family vacation, you know what I’m talking about. So you may
hear some dogs barking or kids screaming or something in the
background. Yet I have to get this done today for you guys.
Alright, so when I say the neurology of success, I did say,
that I’ve also and if I didn’t say I’m saying it now is that
I’ve also created episodes, and one of the first five episodes I
believe on habits, and I’ve said before is that you don’t get
what you want in life, you get your habits. And where I want to take this
episode a little differently, and I’m not a fan of podcasts
that just repeat the same thing, same topic, and they repeated
over and over it, come on, at least give me a different spin
on a particular topic, which I want to do here at the end of
this episode. So we know and you know that we don’t get what we
want. We get our habits and habits come from the oldest part
of the brain and let me explain very quickly, it’s three parts
of the brain. The oldest part of the brain is the reptilian part
of the brain, it is the fight or flight part of the brain. It’s
the part of the brain responsible for survival. And
it’s also the part of the brain where habits are housed. We have
the middle part of the brain, which is the limbic system, the
mammalian brain, it is the emotional brain. And then we
have the prefrontal cortex, which is the largest part of the
brain, the thinking part of the brain. The prefrontal cortex is a part
of you thinking right now okay, this makes sense. Yes, I get it,
etc, etc. I want to make 200,000 a year I want to be a
millionaire, I want a new boat, a new car, a new home, a new
job, whatever, I’m going to set my goals. And if you’ve listened
to the other episode on habits is, the habits come from the
oldest part of the brain, which is the reptilian part of the
brain. And many times we get into what I call habit battle,
which is the thinking part of the brain will fight the habit
part of the brain and I won’t go too far here with this because
there’s there’s a whole nother episode on habits so I won’t go
too far into habits because you can listen to the other episode
which I believe is number,3,4,5,6 3,4,5,6 6
somewhere in that order I don’t know where. But as I just said,
we don’t get what we want in life. And again if I’m hopping
around here, little guys this episode’s a little
discombobulated it’s a combination to me not feeling
well in a house full of guest and dogs and kids and everything
else. So stay with me though, because I promised to give you a
big takeaway at the end of this particular episode. So continue
to listen. So as I’ve said a couple of
times is that we don’t get, you don’t get, I don’t get, we don’t
get what we want. We get our habits. And the habits come from
the reptilian part of the brain. And the reason we create habits
or the brain reptilian part of the brain creates habits is
because imagine that you want to ride a bike and each time that
you ride a bike or drive a car or make a sandwich or read that
anytime that you do anything it’s research demonstrates 95%
habit. So imagine each time that you wanted to do something, you
had to really learn how to do it. I mean, think about how
inefficient that would be as beings is that you had to learn
how to ride a bike every time you wanted to ride a bike. So
that’s why we have habits. And what I want to say and I
say, this is my habit program. And it’s so simple that most
people miss it. I mean, it’s so blatantly simple that we miss
it. And it’s also true and it’s also proven by science. But I
want to say it this way, is that everything you have, when I say
everything, every bit of health that you have, for the most
part, meaning your physiology, providing you don’t have
disease, which also that can be habit created by environment and
things that you eat and things of that nature. But for the most
part, pretty much everything that you have is a result of
habits. You have a lot of money that is a habit providing that
you created the habits to create that kind of wealth and income.
If you continuously have no money, that is a habit. If you
have great health, for the most part that is a habit if you
have, poor health, for the most part that is a habit as well. And it’s so simple, it is so
simple that when we, we really get that everything in life is a
habit. And what we have to focus on is our habits, not what we
think we want, because that gets into self deception a lot of
times and that’s prefrontal cortex, but we have to focus on
our habits. So what I’m going to tell you right now, and again, I
promise you, I’ll change this up and I’ll give you a different
ending here. And this is going to be a shorter episode, but I’m
going to point you in a different direction this episode
to create new habits, which I’ve not talked about with what I’m
going to give you here in any other episode. So what I want to share with you
is this is that if you want to create more in life, if you want
more plain and simple, you have to change your habits. Consider
that. You have to change your habits and habits are something
that happened automatically in the brain. I mean, it’s
just,it’s it’s hardwired in the brain when we create habits. So
what I want to say here very quickly also is that you cannot
use willpower to change your habits. For example, let’s say when we
learn to read learning to read is a habit we do it through
wrote in repetition. You can’t will yourself and scream at
yourself when you’re, back when we learned when you were five
years old, learn that, learn that verb, learn that word, etc.
You can’t do that. So what I want to talk about here is I
want to combine two concepts that I talked about a lot. And
by the way, guys, if any, I’m sure every one of you have had
the cold and the flu and stuff like that, and your brain is
muddled. So if I’m making no sense because my brain is
muddled, if I’m making no sense in this episode, email support
or something and say, Jim made no sense I’ll record it again or
a different perspective or something later. So thank you
for your patience with me. But what I want to talk about
here is a want to talk about using the power of self-hypnosis
hypnosis to retrain your brain to retrain your habits. So
that’s why we said and the headline and again, as I looted
to earlier, somebody on my team wrote a headline, the biology of
success when it’s really the neurology of success. But what
we can do is we can train, you can train your brain, which is
biology, you can train yourself to create new habits to be
successful. So what I want to point out also, which I did a
little earlier, is that you’re thinking pretty much is a habit
and make meaning there’s a difference between thought and
thinking. And I’m not going to go into that in this episode. But for example, when you you
see somebody and you have some thought about them, let’s say
that Bob is a user and he takes, he’s always taking advantage of
people and let’s say that Sally’s a doormat. Or vice
versa, it doesn’t matter. But every time you see Bob, you
might think oh, there, he’s a user. He’s a user, he uses
people he uses people or there, Sally, she’s a doormat. She’s a
doormat, she’s a doormat, or whatever. And I’m just using
those as arbitrary examples, obviously. But what I want to point out is
that you have habits and habitual thoughts about
everything in your life. And even your, what I call your
counterproductive thinking, is nothing more than learned
behavior that’s habitual, your positive thinking, is nothing
more than then learned behavior. And it’s habitual. So what we
want to do is we want to habituate new thinking. Now, the next question would be
is, Well, Jim, exactly. How do we do that? So I want to go back
again to self-hypnosis. hypnosis. And what I want to do
is I want to refer a link here and you’ll find the link in the
show notes. And the link is… I don’t, people will always ask
me, Jim, can you refer a certain hypnosis products, self hypnosis
for fear, anxiety, nail biting, test taking, hair pulling and
just the whole gamut of human behavior. And I don’t refer a lot of sites
because every site is different out there. And you can google
self hypnosis audios and you’ll find a bazillion different sites
and different authors and, and kinds of downloads and
everything else. But let me let me share something with you that
I share with my students. The most powerful lifetime tool that
you can ever master is the power of Self-Hypnosis. Hypnosis. And
that literally means just learning how to reprogram your
subconscious mind. And technically, all hypnosis is
self-hypnosis hypnosis because no one has power over anyone
else. But there’s one audio and people have said, Well, Jim, why
don’t you create a similar audio and I’m like, why would I do
that when this company’s already done a great job, what’s the
point of reinventing the wheel? I like the product. It’s a
really, really good process. So let me let me just share
share this with you and we’ll be in the show notes. There is a
website called hypnosisdownloads.com. com. So
what you want to do is you want to go to hypnosisdownloads.com.
com. Again, the link will be in the show notes. And they have a
particular audio that’s called learn instant self hypnosis.
Again learn instant self hypnosis and they use what I
call neuro linguistics they use what they call the three two one
technique. Basically the audio will condition you to drop right
down into a state of self hypnosis in a matter of seconds.
The only thing the audio does is it will teach you, it will
condition you how to go down in the self-hypnosis, hypnosis, it
does not program you for anything other than that. Let me
be very clear. It does not program you for success. It does
not program you for anything other than how to use the tool
of self hypnosis. Then what you’ll do is you will actually
if you choose, you will purchase that audio, learn instant
self-hypnosis hypnosis and going to start reprogramming your
subconscious mind. Now, there is a one here let me
just hop around here a little bit. This is definitely I think
the most hodgepodge episode I’ve ever done And if this is your
first episode, please do not judge me on this episode. Like I
said, I’ve got a house full of people and a cold and a muddled
brain at this moment. So I’m doing my best to get this
episode to you guys. Alright, so what you want to do
is you want to use that episode to learn how to reprogram your
subconscious mind. Now if you want more direction other than
what I can give you right now, one of the episodes also is
about the power of your subconscious mind double live
it’s it’s right next to the one on habits Episode 5,6,7,
something like that. And I recommend a book by Joseph
Murphy called the power of your subconscious mind. Plain and
simple that when you use the audio and you use a technique
and you Learn instant self hypnosis, after a while because
it will condition you to use self hypnosis, you won’t need
the audio anymore. For example, this thing in age, I’ve done
this for so long, I don’t even I don’t need audios. I simply take
a deep breath, I follow the processes and the audio and I
dropped right down into self-hypnosis hypnosis in a
matter of seconds. But I’m going to give you the easy version
here. And the thing about us human
beings as human beings love to make things hard. But I’m going
to give you the easy version is what you want to do is you want
to drop down and the self hypnosis, the audio will teach
you how to do it very, very quickly. And what you want to do
is see things as you want them to be. Now let me give you an
example there. Let’s say for example, that you want to be
successful because this entire episode is about the biology of
success, or as I said, rather the neurology of success. Let’s say that you want to be a
successful public speaker and you have to speak in front of
people but every time you get up to get therapists, your hands
claiming your knees knock . Well, what you want to do in
this giving you a crash course here is you want to drop down to
the self hypnosis and you want to imagine, imagine yourself in
front of an audience doing well, being comfortable feeling,
feeling good, feeling calm, feeling confident, and crushing
your presentation. You do that over and over and over again.
And that’s how you reprogram your subconscious mind plain and
simple. And when I say plain and simple, people love to make it
really, really hard. Now, I told you that I’d make this episode a
little different than others, because it’s not just content.
I’m literally suggesting you click the link, go get that
audio and learn instant self hypnosis. And you can use it for anything.
You can use it for calming your nerves, anxiety, you can use it
to make yourself as I said, calming your nerves if you have
to speak in front of people. I remember one time I had a
student who came to me for hypnosis and he goes Jim, this
is many years ago. And he says that I got through the police
academy using self hypnosis because there was so much stress
involved with it, that every day I’d go into self hypnosis and I
used it to calm myself down so that I could get through the
police academy. So what I want to share with you is this tool
is a lifetime tool. And then what you’re doing is obviously,
you’re using your mind and your brain. Because what you’re doing
is when you go into self hypnosis, and you see things
over and you imagine over and over and over and over again,
because that’s how the brain learns. Literally, that is the neurology
and the biology of success. And you can use this strategy to
create success. Well, you can use it to create success with
anything that you want in life. Okay, geez. I made it for this
episode. I muddle through, not quite sure. I know it’s a
shorter episode the most. And, hopefully you’ll take this out.
You’ll get the download and you will start learning how to
reprogram your subconscious mind. Okay, I made it through.
So next episode is obviously, on a Monday and it’s a Q&A. A. And
the person asked a really good question. The question is when
you have extremely large goals, should you start by focusing on
smaller goals. One of the biggest mistakes that most
people make, and I see it all the time, and I used to be there
is when we want to create a lot of change in life, we tend to
take massive action, which you hear one speaker talk about a
lot. Well, the problem with that is that most of us can’t sustain
the massive action. When most of us have big problems. We’re
looking for big solutions. And that’s not how we create change
in life for the most part. How we create change is consistency
and little by little by little. So I’m sure many of you that
when you’ve had extremely large goals, you’ve tackled the goals
and you’ve failed. Why? Because you’re biting off too big of a
piece. And where I’d rather you start is focusing on smaller
aspects of it. I’ll dig into that on the next episode. Okay,
so thank you again for putting up with me through this entire
episode. And I’ll catch you on the next one. Take care. Bye
