016 Be-Do-Have: The Secret Formula for Creating the Life you Want

Apr 10, 2019

How many times have you told yourself, “As soon as I lose a few pounds, I will buy some new clothes, and then I will feel confident”?

Or, “If only I had some extra money, I could invest more in growing my business, and finally be wealthy”?

Sooner or later, all of us realize we live by the Have-Do-Be model. You know, what I’m talking about. You tell yourself that as soon as you have something you want, you can do the things you want to do, so you can be the person you want to be.

The problem is, if you follow this model of thinking, your life will never change. To radically transform your life, you must operate from the Be-Do-Have model. Start with knowing who you need to be, to do the things you need to do, to have the things you want to have.

Who you are being = your identity.

The results you are getting in your life and business reflect your identity. And, if you aren’t getting the results you want in your life or business…well, that’s a reflection of your identity as well.

Don’t think it’s true? Examine your bank account for 10 minutes, and you will see what kind of money identity you have.

In today’s episode, Jay and Nikole describe how the teachings of their friend and mentor, Jim Fortin, have revolutionized their thinking and their business.

Before Jim entered their lives, Jay and Nikole had begun transforming their business using a very scientific and methodical approach. They had each taken numerous personality assessments and had worked hard to understand why they behaved the way they did. They also dove deeper and discovered their core drivers: those influences outside of their thinking that influenced their behavior.

But they knew something was missing.

Jay and Nikole had worked hard to answer the question, “Who am I.” But they never asked the question, “Is this who I WANT to be?”

Until completing Jim’s coaching program (and then repeating it 3 times), Jay and Nikole had never considered they could choose the person they wanted to be, who would do the things needing to be done, to have the life they wanted to have.

If you want to learn more about how Jim taught Jay and Nikole to live the Be-Do-Have model, then join the free Facebook group, Transformational Power Couples, today. In this pop-up group, Jay and Nikole will be sharing how you, too, can apply Jim’s teachings as a couple and completely transform your life.
