The Jim Fortin Podcast – E59 – Money Doesn’t Come From Hard Work


You’re listening to episode
number 59 of the Transform Your Life From The Inside Out
Podcast. Plain and simple, the headline is pretty self
explanatory. In this episode I talked about the fact that money
doesn’t come from hard work. Keep listening. 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. And to bring 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. So when I say that money doesn’t
come from hard work, that probably flies in the face of
what a lot of you believe. And if you’ve been listening for any
time to this podcast, you’re already aware that what I do
flies and things that I say flies in the face of a lot of
conventional thought, a lot of cultural myths. And you also
know you probably heard me tell my story that I grew up a small
town Texas farm boy, literally 2000 people in the town. I grew
up on a farm, a real farm. And a lot of people find that shocking
when they know that I lived in New York City. And I’ve been all
around the world that I really don’t look like a air quote farm
boy. But I was thinking this weekend as always driving that
my mother had us working when we were 12 years old. And
obviously, well, not obviously, but it wasn’t like child labor,
abuse and all that. But definitely when we were
kids, I remember in sixth grade, my mother already had us outside
working from the age of about 12. And I worked all the way
through. After school, I worked all the way through high school,
I get up at five o’clock in the morning, feed the cattle and get
dressed, go to school, come home three o’clock, if I wasn’t doing
sporting activities, or whatever, then I was back
working again. And I even remember, I’ve never told a
story. And it’s such an ancillary story. If you’ve ever
picked up a bale of hay, anywhere in the world, I mean, I
don’t know, there’s people here from all over the world. But a
bale of hay is I don’t know, it’s about 70 pounds. And my
last summer before college, a guy named Jimmy Mark and I work
for his dad, Jimmy and I both of us bailed 49,000 000 bales of
hay that summer, just just the two of us. I mean, that is hard
work. And we got paid a nickel each per bail. But I’m going to tell you that I
grew up and it was hammered in my head I mean, hammered and
drilled and instilled from my grandfather and my father, my
uncles, that you have to work hard, you’ve got to struggle,
you have to grind, you’ve got to put in the long hours, you’ve
got to sacrifice. And you’ve got to just as I said, work hard to
make money. Well, that’s not true. You know, in my family, I
make more than in terms of attracting money and wealth, I
have more wealth and my entire family put together. And I help
a lot of people in my family. The reality is the family
mentality, which is pretty much universal. I don’t care where
you are in the world is that you have to work hard. And when I
went to college, I said you know what number physical labor, I
mean, I’m a college guy, now I’m going to be college educated
back in the 80s. And I got a good education etc. Got out went
in the work world. And I even believe back then that you had
to work hard, and you had to put in the hours and you had to
struggle. And I’m going to tell you, if you look around you look
around you. I don’t care if you have a college degree, I don’t
care how many hours you work, if you look around you and I’m
about to demonstrate to you, and you might have heard me say
before, is that hard work is for the most part, there might be an
exception every so often. But if you look at the masses, hard
work is not going to bring you a great deal of money. And it’s
not going to attract wealth and abundance for you. You might
work hard, but what you’re doing for the most part is trading
dollars for hours. And for the most part, you’re trading
dollars. I’m sorry, you’re trading hours for not very many
dollars. And the story that I just gave
you about me growing up, I’ve done this for a lot of years.
And I talked to a lot of people and most of you have the same
story. As a matter of fact, I know you’ve heard me say before
that I read an article in the Wall Street Journal, I believe
that it was it was a reputable publication. And the statistics
are that 78% of the population works paycheck to paycheck here
in the US. And it’s probably similar around the world. If not
even much worse than that. Many of you might be working long
hours, you’re working two jobs, you’re working three jobs are
working long hours, some of you are working in an unhealthy
conditions, and then go look at your bank account. And I can
give you 1,000 examples of people working really, really,
really hard. But not being successful financially. And I want to point out that,
financial success really isn’t a big deal to me, and that, the
old phrase, you can’t take it with you. But I’m going to tell
you, it sure makes life a lot easier. And your life would be a
lot easier as well, if you had money just piling up in your
bank account, and you had money coming into you that show that
you could cover all the things that you want, whether it’s
taking care of your elderly parents, or extra health care,
or health care, even for that matter here in the US, which is
extremely expensive. As a matter of fact, here in the US, I know
people in the middle class that have to pick between healthcare
and a mortgage because they can afford both. And yet they’re working really,
they’re really hard and still not making their ends meet. So
if you look at your own life, and if not just look out your
window, look at people you know, look at your neighborhood, look
at your family, look at your friends, I guarantee you, I 100%
guarantee you there are people working very, very hard, their
nose to the grindstone, and guess what, they’re not making a
lot of money or they’re struggling to make ends meet.
Now, let’s go somewhere else with this. And I did create a
similar episode, episode number nine, which I definitely
recommend you listen to. But I want to take a little different
slant and talk a little bit more about where money comes from,
and give you some more perspective on it. As well, I know because I get
emails and Instagram messages all the time, that many times
you listen to something and you absorb part of it and you listen
again later or you hear it in a different way. And then finally
that little click a little a-ha ha goes off and you’re like,
whoa, okay, I get it. All right. Most people work from what I
call the Newtonian which is Sir Isaac Newton, the Newtonian
Mechanistic Model of the world. And basically, it’s like the
entire world is just a machine. And cause and effect. If I do
this, I’ll get that. But the Newtonian, the Cartesian. The
Cartesian Newtonian model of the world is that the universe is
one big mechanistic machine. And at the turn of the last century,
quantum mechanics, quantum physics started changing that
the work of Max Born and Werner Heisenberg and Wolfgang Pauli,
they’re the ones who actually coined the phrase Quantum
Mechanics. And then we have Einstein a little later, and
then Max Planck a little earlier, and then String. And
all these all these Scientists, all these Physicist, actually
completely invalidated the mechanistic model of the world. So what Quantum Mechanics and
Quantum Physics basically says, is that everything in the
universe E=mc2 mc2 everything is energy. And what’s interesting
is that you are a radiating bundle of energy. And most of us
have never really sat down to really, really grasp what that
means. I mean, you literally are electrons, neutrons and protons,
you have consciousness running through you. So if this is the
case, which is the case, it is a fact of Science, then the Laws
of the Universe and Consciousness apply to you. Yet
most people insist upon working on the or through the Newtonian
Cartesian Model of the universe being one big, giant, gigantic
machine. And it’s a 3d world. And I have to work in that 3d
world. And I’m not working with what I call the invisible world,
which is the World of Physics. Now, let me go somewhere with
this for you. Everything started to change for
me in 1996. That was the year that I met my brother in law,
Don Xavier the Shaman. And that same year, I was in a bookstore,
and I picked up a book. Well, I used to read voraciously. I
mean, a lot of books, I’ve read over 5000 books in my life. So
I’d go into bookstores and spend a half a day just picking out a
dozen books. That would be my books for the month. And I
picked up a little book called the abundance book. You can find
it on Amazon today for probably $5. The author is John Randolph
Price. Again, this is 1996. I remember I picked it up, it was
September of 1996. Because I remember where I was when I
picked it up. And the books are really easy. I mean, it probably
take you 30 minutes to read. And it has 40 days of meditations.
10 days of meditation repeated four times. And off topic here,
what you’re supposed to do is do the 10 days of meditation four
times in a row. And just being candid with you. It took me
many, many tries to be able to actually finish the 40 days of
meditation, whole different topic, and that that would be a
topic on habits, which I do have an earlier podcast about habits.
One of the first episodes I think first 10 episodes is about
habits. But in the book, he said
something and it just made sense to me. And I had no basis I had
no foundation, I had no reason for it to make sense. Other than
I used my sense, not my common sense, but my higher sense,
S-E-N-S-E. E-N-S-E. N-S-E. S-E. E. And it made sense to me what
I read. And what he said in the book is that and he uses the
word God I prefer to use the word universe. But he said that
money doesn’t come from work. Money comes from the universe.
Now if you’ve listened to episode number nine, you have
heard me say that before. All right. At that same time, the same
year, I met my brother in law, Don Xavier the Shaman, and he
wanted to and I wanted to I mean I was I was eager to start
working with him. And to start doing dreamtime work with him
where he assist people, he started assisting me to master
dream time and demand to master understanding dream time, the
different aspects of dream time. And by the way, there’s a
podcast on that here also, I think I call it your greatest
superpower is something like that. And it’s dream time. But
back then I quit my corporate job. And I was I was kind of
hobbling along waiting tables at that time not making a lot of
money working hard working, you know, so many hours a week
creating my, time my life energy for dollars, and not a lot of
them even though I was working at a nice restaurant. And he
said to me one time, he said, How come you’ve not started the
instructions that I gave you? And I said, Well, I can’t afford
to pay you. Now mind you, he never asked me for any money,
not even one penny literally not even one penny. And I don’t know why I had to
solution that I had to get him a set amount of money. But I
wanted to give him like XYZ amount of money. And he said to
me did I asked you for any money? And I said no. And he
said, You know what? My job, I am here meaning on the planet. I
am here to serve. And he goes I do what I do. I do this service
that I do. And I get my compensations from the universe. And that’s the way that I’ve
always seen him work. And I have a couple of Podcast here on
money. And I know I talked about him a lot because I’ve learned,
I’ve learned and I’ve come to know so much higher wisdom by
following him for so many years. And it’s worked beautifully in
my life to help me create a health, a life of health, wealth
and abundance and prosperity, and many, many life areas. So in the Price book it also and
I’m you know, I’m thinking here at this time, because I was just
starting to get to know and to start to work with my brother in
law. I thought the same thing. I’m like, well, Price says that
in his book is that money comes from what he calls God. So like
I said, I knew it was true. And I’m watching my brother in law
live that way, and back then we didn’t have any social media and
even today from back. It’s crazy today. You know, 25 years later,
he still has the same ridiculous AOL address, email, I mean, who
uses AOL anymore for the most part, and the same phone number
that he said 25 years ago? I’ve watched the universe
compensate him yet I have no evidence in my 25 years with
him. And I have no evidence from anyone that’s encountered him.
No evidence of anyone ever saying, you know, what, can you
please give me money? He has never said that. Why? Because
He’s also not a shaman, but he is a sorcerer. And a lot of
people don’t know what that means. They don’t think it
exists. But he’s a sorcerer. And being a sorcerer means that he
works with source and all of us whether or not we know it, we
work, you know, with source which I’ll get to in just a
moment. So the very first Christmas that
I knew him, I said, Hey, you know, I called him Xavier back
and I’m like, Xavier, what do you want for Christmas? And he
says, I don’t know. He goes, You know what? He goes, why don’t
you get me a copy of a book called the KYBALION and you
spell it K-Y-B-A-L-I-O-N. Y-B-A-L-I-O-N. B-A-L-I-O-N.
A-L-I-O-N. L-I-O-N. I-O-N. O-N. N. He says, You know what, many
years ago somebody gave me that book and I lost it over the
years and it’d be nice to have another copy. Now me thinking in
a very simple way that I did back then and I thought, oh,
okay, he wants a copy of the KYBALION. No, that wasn’t it. He
doesn’t need a copy of the KYBALION. What he was literally thinly
veiled doing is saying, Hey, Jim, I want to introduce you to
and I want you to get the KYBALION and I want you to start
understanding the KYBALION. And now the KYBALION was written,
it’s believed the manuscript was posed was published in the early
1900s. But it’s believed that the manuscript was written by
Hermes Trismegistus, which means thrice great, he’s also an Egypt
known as Hermes. And it’s an ancient manuscript of the seven
cosmic laws. The first cosmic law is that the universe is
mental. Now, this is believed to be this manuscript is literally
believed to be thousands of years old. And when the first
universal law is the universe is mental. Well, Quantum Physics is
everything is consciousness, everything is and even thinking
is consciousness, which is mental. Alright, so I want to jump ahead
here, as I said, I read a lot of books. And I tell a lot of
people to read a book that was written about 100 years ago
called the Science of getting Rich. And it’s by Wallace
Wattles. It’s an extraordinary book, pretty simple formula and
an extraordinary book. And I want to say that I endorse
what’s in the book, through what I’ve learned in my own life
experiences, and what I’ve learned through working with a
shaman, and a sorcerer. And in the book, he says, one of the
main principles to getting wealthy to attracting money is
to understand that there is a thinking substance that pervades
all things. Now listen, again, a thinking
substance. And this is, by the way, was prior to even quantum
mechanics and all the news about it, it was around that same
time, but I mean, news traveled really slowly back in the early
1900’s. And basically, Wallace Wattles says, if you don’t get
this concept, then nothing else is going to matter when it comes
to creating great wealth and abundance is that there is a
thinking substance that pervades all things in the universe,
which in the KYBALION, and thousands of years old
manuscript says the same thing in terms of the first cosmic
law, everything is mental, and quantum physics validates it. So money doesn’t come from hard
work. It doesn’t, it can, but really, very limited supplies.
Because also hard work is finite. Because to do hard work,
you’ve got to trade your time and your energy to do the hard
work and your time and energy are finite, therefore the hard
work is finite. Therefore the wealth you can make from your
hard work is finite. So what I’m sincerely wishing and sincerely
hoping that you get here is that your level of wealth in life
doesn’t come from your behavior in your physical activity. It
comes from your prosperity consciousness. So you can work hard and you can
have high prosperity, consciousness, and the hard work
will contribute to the wealth. But you can work really hard and
have a low prosperity consciousness. And you’re going
to do nothing but work really hard and not attract a lot of
money. What I’m sharing with you in this podcast and in an
episode number nine, I’m not sure the correct word that I
want to use here. But this leap, leaping from the Newtonian
Cartesian Model of the world, everything’s physical. And I’ve
got to go do things to make money to the Quantum Mechanics,
Quantum Physics model of the world, that everything is
consciousness, and everything is energy. That leap is when I say
I’ve got to be careful of words, but I’m going to use the word
hard. That leap was one of the hardest
leaps I ever made. And it’s one of the hardest leaps for most
people, is because in our behavior, we can see our
behavior and we can say, Well, if I do x,y, y, z behavior. And
then I calculate x, y, z dollars are my metrics are my
conversions or whatever. If I do xyz behavior then I can make XYZ
dollars. If I punch the XYZ time clock for eight hours, and I get
paid 20 bucks an hour, then I’ve got XYZ dollars coming. That’s
all mechanistic, it’s all mechanical. And to make this leap, to make
this leap requires and Wallace Wattles said it and I agree, is
that we must embrace, we must come to know we must own we must
work from that there is a thinking substance in the
Universe, that pervades all things. Now when I say thinking
it’s that’s a very nebulous way to put it. But basically, what
he’s saying is everything is consciousness. And if you can’t
get your mind around that, then in my experience with me and
watching the world is most of us continue to toil away, and get
up early and work long hours and not make and not attract a
significant amount of money. Many years ago, I had a client
when I did a lot of one to one coaching. And he refused to
accept this. And literally, he was making what I would say is
decent money he was making $700,000 a year. And I actually
had to let him go as a client because he wouldn’t let go of
his old paradigms about money and about service. And I’ll just
leave it at that for now. But he said to me, and he was always
worried about money, because he lives in California. He has two
boys, they wanted to go to private school. He lives in a
wealthy area of California. And he said to me, he goes, you
know, Jim, You don’t worry, you don’t worry about money because
you have money. And I started, you know, gently laughing and I
really liked the guy back then I like him now, he’s a good guy. And I said, No, no, you have it
reversed. I have money because I do not worry about money. I have
money, because I do not worry about money. And I want you to
look at your life. Do you have money? Do you not? Do you worry
about money? Because for the most part, there’s always
exceptions to the rules. But just take a step back and look
at this. Have you noticed that most people that have money,
don’t worry about money? And people that actually don’t have
money do worry about money? Do you see a big aha here,
considering the fact that science demonstrates that
everything is consciousness, the KYBALION and the Science of
Getting Rich, everything is mental? Are you starting to see
the correlation here that the more peaceful of mind that we
are, the more wealth we can attract more abundance we can
attract. And the more worry that we entertain, the more that we
actually repel money, because money, money is consciousness.
Thought is consciousness. Consciousness has a vibration.
Worry is consciousness. Peace is consciousness and vibration as
well. So what I want to share with you, think about this, and
this is the biggest leap for most people, I get it. And
actually, I consider this to be one of the greatest victories
you will ever experience in your lifetime, is when you stop
working from that 3d mechanistic model of the world. And you
start working from the quantum mechanics, the quantum physics,
the consciousness aspect of you and the world and physics, and
recognize that every thought that you have, even Ernest
Holmes, who wrote the Science of Mind back in the early 1900s.
Now, I don’t have this in front of me, but let me see if I can
recapitulate one of his quotes, and there’s a good chance I will
mangle this. But he said something along the
lines of and again, I’m not going to be able to recapitulate
all of this. But he said, “Just imagine your mind. So plastic,
so receptive, that it receives the slightest impression of your
thoughts. Not some thoughts, but every thought is taken up and
acted upon.” Actually, I think I nailed the first paragraph. But
notice what he said there is that not some thoughts, but
every thought is taken up and acted upon? So what are your
thoughts about hard work? And what are your thoughts about
money, and then again, do your own research if you want go to
YouTube, look up the double slit experiment, double slit, S-L-I-T
L-I-T I-T T experiment on YouTube, watch the one by Dr.
Quantum, and basically the material world around you bends
to your consciousness. So I also want to point out,
actually, before I point this out, have you ever noticed, have
you ever noticed that the people who need the money the most have
the least amount of money, generally speaking, and that’s
pretty much 9.9 times out of 10, the people who need the money
the most which where is their consciousness, where is their
energy, have the least amount of money. Why? They have the least
amount of money because their need for money, and they’re
wanting money, which is worry, and fear and anxiety, these are
all vibrations, they create a corresponding experience in the
physical 3d world around them. This, again, is why money does
not come from hard work, or at least a paradigm that I’ve got a
struggle and I’ve got to work till my eyeballs bleed, and I’ve
got to just bang it out. And I’ve got a hustle. And I’ve got
to be the first one up in the morning, every bit of that is
absolute nonsense. Okay, so to contribute more to
this, is go listen to episode number nine. And in it, I talked
about this, but in a different way. And I think if you take
episode number nine, and you put it with this one, that may
actually help you chip away even some more and give you more
epiphanies and more AHA’s about how to attract the kind of
abundance and prosperity that you want into your life. Okay, so the big leap is this.
And this requires trust. And the second hurdle. When I say it
requires trust, I’ve been there, I’ve been there before. The
first hurdle for most people is to stop working from the 3d
mechanistic model of the world. And to fully embrace that we are
consciousness, we, as beings, we have energy running through us,
you might have heard me say before, we have a heartbeat,
which is energy, we have an EEG and an EKG, brainwaves and a
heartbeat, we are electromagnetic beings. Sit with
that for a second you are an electromagnetic being. Because
without electromagnetics running through your physical body,
which is your 3d body, your 3d body would be a dead bag of
skin. So the fact that you are an
electrical magnetic being also means that you are subject to
the Laws of Pysics, which are the Laws of the Universe. And
what that means is that you’re part of consciousness. And what
that means even further is that wherever you hold your
consciousness, according to the double slit experiment, wherever
you hold your consciousness, the physical world, because it’s
responding, the consciousness actually organizes its way
around you. So what a lot of you doing is you’re working from
circumstance, and then you feel bad about the circumstance
you’re working from. Because you know what I’m working all these
hours, oh, my gosh, I’m really, really tired. And then I look at
my bank account, and I feel bad. And then because I feel bad,
what’s happening is I’m actually creating that and putting that
out out in the consciousness. And the universe is returning
that to me, you know, in episode number nine, which is your
Transformational Takeaway, is I clearly lay out that the layers
and levels of thinking, and actually, let me let me just say
this, what I see in that episode is that, from our thinking,
comes our feeling, from our feeling comes our vibration, and
from our vibration comes our frequency. And guess what? Money
responds to frequency. And when you think things like I’m going
to worry, worry, worry, then you feel, and that brings your
vibration and your frequency down. When you’re thinking that
you know what I’m grateful, and money flows into my life.
Money’s easy to attract. And I am part of this, this quantum
soup. And when I feel rich, I vibrate that. And that frequency
brings it to me. So the takeaway is this, is that
and I tell people this and I’ve seen this and there could be
there could be an exception to the rule, but really, I haven’t
seen it is that you will not be rich, you will not be rich and
attract wealth, until you feel wealthy. Now the next question
is going to be here, as people will say, and I’m going to make
this very short, people will say, but Jim, I don’t have any
money, how do I feel wealthy? Easy. Look at all the things in
the world around you, that supports you, the water that you
drink, that support you, the air that you breathe that supports
you, your lungs actually support you because without lungs, you
wouldn’t be alive. But what about this? What about being
grateful, because when we are in gratitude, Oprah used to say
gratitude is the attitude. Well, gratitude, it’s a way of
thinking, which creates a way of feeling which affects your
vibration, which affects your frequency. So be in gratitude.
And when you start feeling rich, and you start feeling grateful
for what you have, the money starts coming in, based upon or
I’m going to say commensurate with your level of consciousness
relative to money. Okay, so I think in our time
together, I have fully dispelled and you know, I’m probably going
to do some more episodes on this because again, 78% of Americans
alone live paycheck to paycheck, you must get, you must accept,
you must embrace, if you want to stop working as hard as you’ve
been working, is that money doesn’t come from the hard work.
It comes from your consciousness. And when you’re
working from the 3d mechanistic model of the world, and money
comes from hard work, and hard work comes from your time and
energy and time and energy are finite. What happens is you are
then stale point to what I call it your stale point when it
comes to attracting a significant amount of abundance
into your life. OK. So the next episode is a Q&A
A episode from Cathy. And her question is this. Her question
is you talk about working from point B, meaning where you want
to go in life, to point B, meaning instead of trying to
work from where you are to where you want to be work from where
you want to be, which is point B. And then she says, but I
don’t know what my point B is? Well, she says many other
things, and I’m going to take it apart in the next podcast. So in
this podcast, remember that I just said that everything is
consciousness, everything is energy, and the double slit
experiment, the physical universe actually organizes
itself around your consciousness. Well, I didn’t
even realize it till I start to think until I just started
thinking about this, the next episode corresponds, because
when you work from point B, as if you are at point, I’m sorry,
let me back up. When you work from point A, that’s where your
consciousness is. So you keep creating more of point A, where
we must work from is point B. Because when we work from point
B, then that’s where our consciousness is, and the
universe, the physical universe, actually materializes around
that. So these two episodes kind of go hand in hand. And again, I
didn’t know it until just now. So thanks for listening, and
I’ll catch you over on the next episode. Bye, bye. Thank you for listening to this
