Rob's Story: Experiencing The Fundamental Shift

Mar 01, 2024

As the creator of Identity Shifting, my journey is deeply rooted in understanding the intricate web of meaning and beliefs that shape our lives.

Like so many of us, I've faced formidable challenges: abuse, addiction, homelessness, and cancer (just to name some).

I'm lucky because my transformation went beyond mere survival. It involved understanding the core mechanisms that dictate our identities and what it takes to fundamentally alter them. This journey is a testament to the profound transformation known as the The Fundamental Shift.

From my earliest memories, my life was overshadowed by abuse and dysfunction. This led to a relentless cycle of pain and self-destruction, fueled by drug and alcohol addiction and resulting in homelessness as a young adult.

It also led to all kinds of legal troubles, altercations with the police, and other extremely destructive behaviors. My life seemed to be a script written by circumstances beyond my control, viewed through lenses tinted by trauma and fear.

The turning point came during one of my darkest moments...

If I didn't make a radical change, I wouldn't survive. Which actually would have been welcomed many times in my life. But instead of giving up, for some reason I began to question everything very, very deeply.

Why was I here? What was the purpose of my suffering? Why was there so much suffering everywhere I looked?

It was during this profound crisis of identity that I experienced the Fundamental Shift. 

In a profound moment of clarity, I saw the possibility of a completely different existence. This wasn't an external change but a deep, internal awakening. I realized I was no longer a victim. The abuse had ended long ago, but I had continued to carry it with me, letting it define my present and cloud my future.

This shift wasn't about forgetting or dismissing my experiences, but about seeing them from a new perspective. I learned how to observe my life's story as if I were an outsider, realizing I could rewrite the script. Not what happened to me, but the meaning I chose to make of it.

This changed everything.

We often recognize the need for change but grapple with the 'how.' It's not just about altering a particular behavior or thought. It's about recognizing the higher leverage change. A shift in our conscious mind, that can alter the beliefs we hold in our subconscious mind.

I began to detach from the "pain vs. pleasure" dichotomy that had governed so much of my behavior. Recognizing that my subconscious was keeping me in familiar yet destructive territory was the first step in reprogramming my thoughts and actions.

I adopted a new identity.

Not as the familiar victim, but as a survivor, an architect of my future. This mindset transformed every aspect of my life.

Starting from a temp job, I quickly rose the ranks to become the youngest Vice President of Technology at my company. Even a serious cancer diagnosis didn't derail me. It was just the next thing to deal with. I found ways for it to fuel my ambition, which quickly grew beyond corporate success.

Driven by a profound calling to share what I had learned, I transitioned from the corporate world to founding a coaching practice dedicated to helping others achieve profound personal and professional transformations. (Learn more here: About Rob Scott.)

My approach is rooted in the real-world application of identity shifting. My life's work offers not just inspiration but practical pathways to achieve the freedom and success we all seek, proving that true change is not only possible but accessible to us all.

I specialize in identifying and transforming core limits.

Those deeply ingrained narratives that dictate how we perceive ourselves and interact with the world. Through my own experiences, I've developed a keen insight into pinpointing these critical limits and, more importantly, creating a simple process to repattern them effectively.
