Financial Matrix Quadrants

Financial Matrix Quadrants

Did you know that fifty percent of all American workers are Financial Slaves! Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you, I could hardly believe it myself until I started doing my own research. According to the latest data reported on Economist.com, over half of all Americans over 18 have no net worth, not even a penny. Let that sink in for a moment. Imagine all the hours husbands and wives work every year and over half of the households have NOTHING to show for it? No ownership and no choices is simply slavery under a different name.

Furthermore, over 80% of Americans over age 18 are in debt, a debt trapping them into financeal subjugation. For if the typical family loses one of its jobs, be it by downsizing or medial challenge, the family boat is capsized. This makes the family subject to the whims of employers and health – not a good position to be in.  Is this really the American Dream we imagined growing for people living in the home of the brave and the land of the free? BTW, for the Canadians reading  this, the data is very similar and the Financial Matrix has trapped your nation as well.

Financial Matrix TrapThe two groups getting hammered by the Financial Matrix Scam are the Financial Slaves (no net worth) and the Financial Subjects (servicing debt to survive). In total the Financial Matrix is siphoning trillions of dollars from these two groups plus businesses and governments at every level.  In the video below, I share how to move from Slave and Subject to Serf and eventually Financial Sovereign, the coveted position where citizens have ownership and choices over their life. Everyone can be free if they are willing to learn how to play defense and offense to avoid the web of debt and control inherent within the Financial Matrix.

Watch the twelve minute video below and the reader will realize the question is which quadrant are you in and what is your plan to move onto Financial Sovereignty? If you don’t have a workable plan, perhaps the Financial Fitness Program can help.

Sincerely,

Orrin WoodwardLife Leadership Chairman of the Board

Taxation, the new Slavery!!!!

tax-slavery

Is taxation the new Slavery???

How did you feel when you got your first job when you were a teenager and you calculated that you worked 40 hours in a week for $5 bucks an hour and you got your check and it said $174 and you noticed you had money taken off your check.

You then start to learn everyone has to pay their share, that we are all doing our part to help with roads, school, police, etc..

As we get older and start to make more, we quickly reliaze the more you make the more they take. I have literally heard people say that they don’t want to make more cause they will hit the next bracket and they will take more off their check and make even less then before.

Here is a break down of the percentage you’ll pay for taxes on your income here in Nova Scotia.

I use to always want to make $100,000 a year when I was a kid. I thought I would be rich. As I started to learn more I realized if I make exactly $100,000 in a job I would only technically bring home to my house $56,500. I’m all for helping out but taking almost half of my hard earned dollars to pay for the debt of the Canadian Government I think it is putting us back into slavery.

The Definition of the word Slavery is as follows:

1.the state or condition of being a slave; a civil relationship wherebyone person has
absolute power over another and controls his life,liberty, and fortune

2.the subjection of a person to another person, esp in being forced into work (I owe I owe so its off to work I go)

3.
the condition of being subject to some influence or habit

4.work done in harsh conditions for low pay

Back in the late 1800s to 1930s many of our ancestors came to North America for freedom and a better life for their families.  Back then the only way many of them could get land was to find an land owner that was willing to let them harvest their land in order for ownership down the road. This was called Sharecropping. If someone harvest their land and gave any more then 30% of their Harvest to the land owner you were considered a Slave.

Today the majority of Canadians that have jobs pay more then 30% of their hard earned dollars to the government for taxes. I even know people that are paying over 65% of their income to taxes.  How would anyone feel if they knew they worked from January-August for the government and from September-December for themselves.

I learn more and more about how free our country use to be but slowly over time it is getting worse and worse and our country is losing its freedom one bill, one new tax at a time.

Here is a post by Ron Hitsman I just had to share.

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Accounts ReceivableTax
Airline surcharge tax
Airline FuelTax
Airport MaintenanceTax
Building PermitTax
CigaretteTax
Corporate IncomeTax
DeathTax
Dog LicenseTax

THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

The Greatest Business Advice!!!

Here is a great video by some vary successful entrepreneurs. I am not endorsing everyone of them, but listen to the comments they say about creating success in your life. Are you striving for excellence in everything you do, are you pushing outside your comfort zone, are you willing to look silly short term so you can live a life most won’t long term?. Put in the effort, stay consistent, and dominate your field.

You are worthy of living a successful life. Believe in yourself and don’t quit.

Comment on the bottom and let me know your biggest take away way from this video.

Be Amazing.

Alex Nickerson

Are you living each day to the fullest, or just passing time!!!

Hey Everyone,

“It’s not death that most people are afraid of, it is getting to the end of life and finding out you never truly lived.”

I just had to post another video by Prince Ea. He nails it on the head how the majority of people are living with regrets as they get closer to the end of their lives.  They realize that they never tried much of anything, that they never took a risk, they just floated through life.

Get excited about your life, that you can make a difference. You can add value to others. You can develop what ever life you want, you just have to go after it.

Whats the opposite of success?????

Most people say failure, but it is the people who fail the most that end up winning the biggest. Look at any successful person and they will tell you they failed and they failed and they failed. Don’t be worried about failing be worried about regretting you never really took a risk!!!

The opposite of success is quitting. Don’t be a quitter, don’t set that example in your life and for your family.

Start on your new path now, take a chance and truly live your life….. remember you only get one shot!!!

Chase after what you were called to do!!!
