Life Leadership Reviews Financial Fitness Pack

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 12, 2015

LIFE Leadership Reviews

The Financial Fitness Pack (FFP) is LIFE Leadership’s #1 selling product. There are several reasons for this.

First, it is a product that meets the citizens of the world where they are at. Financial debt is debilitating many people and without a plan to stop the bleeding, it will only get worse. In fact, the latest figures reveal that consumer debt (debt outside home mortgages) in America has reached the astounding figure of 3.2 trillion dollars according to Business Week. That’s $10,666 of debt for every man woman and child in the USA!

Second, people are waking up to the fact that the Financial Matrix is real. Debt is draining the productivity of all workers from ditch-diggers to doctors because modern society’s money supply is fueled by debt. Indeed, over 70% of the USA money supply is created by housing market mortgages. In other words, if every mortgage was paid off, 70% of the money supply would disappear, literally wiped out when house is owned outright. In the 1950’s the equity in houses in the USA was around 80%, now it’s less than 30%. This means that 50% of the value of all houses in the USA has been siphoned off in the last 60 years!

The Financial Matrix, in a word, is performing exactly as planned. The more people go into debt, the more money is created. Thus, the State and Big Bankers, using Keynesian logic, have wrongly concluded that debt is not only great for bank profits, but also the economy since it stimulates money production. Unfortunately, this economic canard (that more dollars leads to increased wealth) has a long life and only dies with society dies through the predictable boom/bust cycle. The State and Big Banks profit at society’s (the people’s) expense. 

Thankfully, however, reader is waking up to this reality. For just like Neo in the movie The Matrix, he is searching for the answers to why so many people are so far in debt:

Morpheus : I imagine that right now you’re feeling a bit like Alice… Tumbling down the rabbit hole? Hmm?

Neo : You….could say that.

Morpheus : I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees, because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth…. Do you believe in fate, Neo?

Neo : No.

Morpheus : Why?

Neo : Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my own life.

Morpheus : I know… exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life. That there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there…like a splinter in you’re mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?

Neo : The Matrix?

Morpheus : Do you want to know…. what it is….? (Neo nods yes) The Matrix is everywhere. It’s all around us, even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to work, when you pay your taxes. The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth.

Neo : What truth?

Morpheus : That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison…for your mind….Unfortunately, no one can be… told what the Matrix is… you have to see it for yourself.

Morpheus opens a container which holds two pills : a blue one, and a red one. He puts one in each hand, and holds them out to Neo.

Morpheus : This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back…..You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up and believe…whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill…..you stay in wonderland…and I show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Neo pauses for an instant, then reaches for the red pill. He swallows it down with a glass of water, and looks at Morpheus.

Morpheus : Remember…all I’m offering you is the truth : nothing more.

The Financial Fitness Pack

Life Leadership‘s Financial Fitness Pack (FFP) is the only product that covers the Defense, Offense, and Playing Field (explains the Financial Matrix) of finances. If the reader is sick and tired of throwing away thousands of dollars every month just to service existing debt, then perhaps its time to pick up the FFP and cut the ties of debt bondage. Laurie and I paid off our last mortgage payment in late 2003 and have lived free from the Financial Matrix (100% debt free) since that time.

What is the Financial Matrix?

I can answer no better than Morpheus answered (with just a few words added) it in the movie The Matrix:

The (Financial) Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around. What do you see? Business people, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the (debt) system, that they will fight to protect it.

Do not fight to protect the Financial Matrix, but rather fight to free yourself from it by learning the Defense, Offense, and Playing Field of financial management. What do you have to lose besides your debt? 🙂

    Orrin, thanks for posting. So many people are trapped inside the financial Matrix, and it’s up to a group of volunteer freedom fighters to offer them a red pill! Fortunately with the FFP, you and the LC have created a world-class solution to help people escape financial bondage. Thanks for all that you do!

    Thanks for the post Orrin. I feel people do not believe they have control and it is for lack of understanding of the whole financial matrix.

  3. Orrin thanks for continuing to provide information that allows us to improve our thinking!!

    Hi Orrin!

    Life Leadership has the answers for those to apply!
    Fired Up!

    Hey Orrin,

    This post blew our minds. We’ve read a ton of material, listened to audios, and have associated with Life Leadership for about 9 months and this truth in your blog is astonishing. We both work in public schools as a counselor and a teacher and we find it incredibly difficult to do what we do. What we teach and tell students, is literally the matrix. Here is what we want to tell kids
    “You’re not sure what you want to do? Alright, well hold off on
    college and read, listen, and associate with people whom you feel
    have the results you want. From there, stay out of debt, and read
    your bible to understand the message of Jesus Christ.”
    Instead we say,
    “Why aren’t you doing your homework? Don’t you want to get into a
    college? Just fill out a FASFA (Financial Aid Form), it’s no big
    deal, everyone does it.”
    Literally mind blowing (small explosion!). Thank you Orrin for helping us know the truth!

  6. This was, without a doubt, the most impassioned talk I ever saw you deliver in St. Louis.

    Scary stuff. But we have the answer to the Financial Matrix. Getting the word out.

    Love you Brother!

  7. Bill schmidt said

    Great post Big O, so true and so scary at the same time! You truly are waking up America with truth! Like you said recently on a cd, -Truth will set you free, after it ticks you off! the financial matrix is truth, if we don’t do something about it, we will be slaves til we die! Our Freedom is worth fighting for everyday!
    Thanks Brother, love YA 🙂

  8. Nancy Monsipapa said

    The entire world needs to know about the Financial Matrix.

    Thank you Orrin for always sharing truth!

    Hi Orrin,
    Great post! I really enjoy the parallel to The Matrix. It’s something the masses can understand whereas debt and the economy are scary and intangible ideas. Let’s make life the change America’s been praying for!

  10. Well said Orrin!

    • Curtis, I will have the pleasure of attending your open meeting in Vista and meeting you and your lovely wife. I recently began participating in LLR and I look forward to associating with like-minded people. See you (actually tonight!). Take care. Deborah Katz

    • Correction! I am informed that your meeting is Thursday. I apologize and will CONTINUE to look forward to meeting you. Thanks. 🙂

  11. Jerry Harrison said

    thanks Orrin for Friday leadership talk St Louis freedom from financial matrix We will be free indeed

  12. Orrin, I listened to Vinkat (sp) and Lynda at the monthly mtg in Fullerton. They were magnetic and informative. Because of them, I purchased my ticket for the February event. Thank you for all that is being accomplished. I look forward to being a part of this great movement. ~ Deborah Katz (Eli Bowman’s mother)

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Amen Deborah! I am very proud of you for coming to the seminar and committing to coming to the major. It’s going to be awesome! God Bless, Orrin

  13. Jon said

    This is spot on, Orrin. We offer the truth, and while some choose to remain inert and dependent, there are those that choose truth and freedom even when it is tough. As you’ve said many times, “The truth will set you free… after it ticks you off!”

  14. Paul Horst said

    Benjamin Franklin said, “I’d rather go to bed without dinner than to rise in debt.” Orrin, this information is what every person needs to correct their finances going forward. The information from LIFE Leadership has helped Janet and me become debt free. We can’t thank you enough!

  15. Maura Galliani said

    I’ve never seen the movie The Matrix and have heard many references to it over the years, but after this post, Orrin, my curiosity is finally piqued enough to rent it! 🙂

  16. Lori Wells said

    I am so so trapped there and don’t know what to do, my restaurant eats all the money we bring in from all sources and we LIVED beyond our means too long and I dont know what to do with it.

  17. wendi witkowski said

    I love the Matrix Movie and how you are using this to help people see! It’s relatable. Because of the Life information, I have down sized my life to live in freedom from the financial matrix. As I continue to create my life business/ income, I will have the ability to increase my lifestyle debt free. I am so thankful for all the leaders in life and the ability to offer others a way out!

  18. Elaine Mallios said

    Way cool analogy!

  19. Jim Craig said

    Hi Orrin,
    I have young couple that purchased the Financial Fitness program and applied the 47 principles into their daily life and in less than 2 years wiped out $87K of debt that allowed the wife to quit her job to be a stay at home mom and begin home schooling their two young children. Now that’s a real victory! Thank you!!! The Financial Fitness program is saving marriages and families!

    Ha! I read the same script in California Saturday. Love it!
    I love the fact that LL has the best way to exit the Matrix

  22. Rick Satterstrom said

    Well said Orrin, and I love the closing paragraph!

  23. John Hatchell said

    Thanks Orrin, I love offering Life Leadership (the red pill) It is a blessing!! And yes we go against everything the matrix has to offer…Larry VanBuskirk did a seminar for us here in SC on true World / US economics. It was powerful and moving. My daughter (18year old) asked me the most profound question that night on the way home. “Dad, what are we GOING to do?” I said, lil girl we already are with Life Leadership “Our business.”

  24. Pastor E said

    Orrin. This pack is awesome! Our church is doing a study with the FFP. All those going thru the class are on fire right now! A lot of “AHA” moments! We have used several financial resources and this is by far the best! Thanks for all your hard work in making this pack available to us!

    Awesome tie in with the Matrix! What we have learned in LIFE leadership is what got Abraham and I out of over $60,000 in debt (that was without a house, car payment OR student loans…how did we manage to get into that big a hole financially with nothing to show for it?! We were definitely in the matrix). And now because our finances had changed so drastically, before even increasing our income hardly at all, we were able to have me come home 2 weeks before our first son was born. We are proof that one pack can truly change a persons life, change a family lineage and leave a legacy. I know it takes incredible courage to recognize, admit and fight your way out of the matrix, but it is SO WORTH IT! Especially with a paved road a la LIFE, I know for certain ANY person, any debt load, any background personality or obstacles can get out of the matrix also. What a blessing that not only did we get free but we can so easily turn right around and help anyone else do the exact same thing.

    This blog was spot on! It is so amazing to help someone through the FFP and watch their eyes slowly open up till the truth! Thanks for blazing the trail Orrin!

  27. Rory Sayers said

    I have many thoughts about the whole system. Here are a few that have created conflict in my brain. Can you help create some clarity?
    1. The bank does not have the money that it supposedly lends a person to buy a home and then makes the home buyer promise to pay them. Otherwise they will take the residence. How is that? Is it moral to continue to support this?
    2. What is securing all the CC debt?
    3. The math of the entire system does not work and there will be a collapse when the confidence of the users goes away. It’s like a game of musical chairs and we know that not everyone will have a place to sit when the music stops. What can be created as a replacement?

    The people that have tangible assets, such as tools of production and knowledge to use them will be able to produce valuable goods to trade with others that have the same.
    I believe the hedge is to build a community of producers that can create real value in the world while we figure out a suitable replacement of the current system.

    I know you moderate the comments so do what you feel is proper with this.

  28. Rob Crichlow said

    Debt both person and government, has got to be understood and dealt with and it is good to have a tool to help people truly understand it. Thanks for the post and providing the information we need to fight the battle.

  29. Awesome post! It’s a must-read and share post as always!

    Good morning, Orrin,
    Thank you for your trip to Waxahachie. I know you could sit back and “enjoy life.” So, I really appreciate your massive effort to free the rest of us.
    I think I understand how paying off mortgages decreases the money supply. Is it because the banks no longer have an asset to leverage multiple times?
    Thank you,
    Jim Wilson

  31. Jim Wilson said

    Good evening, Orrin. Since my previous comment, I listen to a talk you did on fractional reserve banking. I believe that answers my question. Further, I reflected on my thoughts when I was a young man in the 60s that credit card was driving the manufacturing sector. I didn’t think of it at that time as increasing the money supply. But, I see that is exactly what happened. I did discern that it was causing inflation. Thank you for your observations.

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Jim, you got it. Increasing the money supply and inflation are directly linked. As more money flows though society, it begins to bid higher and higher on items, thus leading up the prices! 🙂 thanks, Orrin

  32. Orrin this is phenomenal! Wow 🙂
