The Financial Matrix is how the Aristocracy controls the masses by controlling capital.
Financial Literacy is the key to get out of the matrix. 

You are in the Financial Matrix if you …

1.    Unable to see your financial freedom day.
We must believe to see; belief is the main component of faith.

2.    Sign more checks on the front than on the back.
When there is more money going out than coming in; the matrix got you.

3.    Are planning your fun more than your financial future.
It is really amazing how many folks want to play now and pay later; the formula for a personal financial crash.

4.    Are not doing the things you don’t feel like doing.
We must be willing to do the things the ordinary man is not willing to do so we can have the uncommon things the common man will never have.

The Financial Matrix – Daily Dose 17

The Financial Matrix – Daily Dose 17

Are you trapped in the Financial Matrix?
The Financial Matrix is how the Aristocracy controls the masses by controlling capital.
The financial illiterate slave is in bondage to the financial savvy aristocrat.

You are in the Financial Matrix if you …
1.   Do not have meaningful personal values.
Life is empty without meaningful personal values; an existential vacuum.

2.   Do not have the guts of a contrarian.
If we do what the common person does we get what the common person gets, very little.

3.   Are not willing to take risks.
The greatest risk of all is not taking a risk.
Analysis paralysis keeps Jack and Jill and Joe and Joan broke.

4.   Do not apply the psychology of personal discipline.
The discipline of investing in oneself is the first step to financial freedom.

5.   Are a conformist.
You heard what happens to the herd; gets slaughtered every time.

6.   Do not understand the value of dissent.
We can never take our grubby old self of a bright new future; a new version of ourselves is required.
Ignore plan B; sever ties with what is holding you back and focus on plan A only.

7.   Are a dabbler.
There is nothing more common than know-it-all dabblers; they go from one endeavor to another without learning the fundamental lessons required to succeed.

Solution: Get financially fit and prosper.
Get out of the Financial Matrix by investing in your financial education!
