00:00:45.730 --> 00:00:51.959
Julie Ann Cairns: Well, up until a few years ago I had a business that taught people how to trade the stock market.

6
00:00:52.120 --> 00:01:00.330
Julie Ann Cairns: and that was an 8 figure business, which I had run with my business partner. We started that in 2,001,

7
00:01:00.720 --> 00:01:09.029
Julie Ann Cairns: so we ran that through till we moved to a stro to from Australia to New Zealand in 2,018.

8
00:01:09.770 --> 00:01:21.669
Julie Ann Cairns: So I wound that business down that was based in Australia, and kind of send me retired and set up an Airbnb business here in Queenstown, New Zealand, which is one of the most beautiful places in the world

12
00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:52.869
Julie Ann Cairns: But one of my previous colleagues contacted me and said, hey? Would you be interested in doing some business coaching? So now i'm also doing business coaching.

00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:55.820
and and I do mindsite coaching

14
00:01:55.940 --> 00:01:57.119
Julie Ann Cairns: as well.

15
00:01:57.290 --> 00:02:05.100
Jane Atkinson: But you know that's our favorite subject over here at the wealthy Speaker school, because without the mindset piece

16
00:02:05.490 --> 00:02:10.230
Jane Atkinson: I can teach them all the how to that you want.

17
00:02:10.259 --> 00:02:27.109
Jane Atkinson: But if there's something blocking things mindset wise, then we're not gonna really get the job done. And so I I am so happy to be talking to you about this today. I did not know that you lived in Queens Town, and

18
00:02:27.500 --> 00:02:31.340
Jane Atkinson: it's really cool. Here I am saying to you, Where? Where from? Originally

19
00:02:31.590 --> 00:02:33.269
Julie Ann Cairns: I grew up in Canada.

20
00:02:33.430 --> 00:02:50.300
Julie Ann Cairns: and then went to Australia at the age of 16, and did high school and university in Australia, and then I've been kind of bopping around. I spent 5 years in Japan, lived in Singapore for a while. yeah, but mainly Australia. And now New Zealand.

21
00:02:50.830 --> 00:03:09.529
Jane Atkinson: Well travel. Well, I did my tour of a year when I was 25 years old, and I have my birthday in Australia, sitting in in Kuji Beach, overlooking this Rugby field, and thinking, you know. If this is it for me? If this is the end of my life I will have.

22
00:03:09.560 --> 00:03:10.890
I will be not

23
00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:13.770
Julie Ann Cairns: 25.

24
00:03:14.000 --> 00:03:15.300
Julie Ann Cairns: You're living

25
00:03:15.410 --> 00:03:16.749
Julie Ann Cairns: ever since. Yeah.

26
00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:37.369
Jane Atkinson: Rugby players and their giant thick thighs across the street for me play, you know this is it? This is all I need. Anyway, I tore around for a year and and that's why I knew that the pronunciation of cans can sometimes go different ways because of

27
00:03:37.540 --> 00:03:43.639
Jane Atkinson: okay. So let's talk about what it means

28
00:03:43.680 --> 00:03:49.209
Jane Atkinson: to have an but an abundant mindset. Tell us what what your thoughts are on that.

29
00:03:49.440 --> 00:03:57.330
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah, Well, let me just give you the quick backstory on how I got to considering mindset as a vital component.

30
00:03:57.730 --> 00:04:02.349
Julie Ann Cairns: So, as I said, I had a stock market business. And

31
00:04:02.860 --> 00:04:07.779
Julie Ann Cairns: teaching people how to trade the stock market, and in 2,008

32
00:04:07.900 --> 00:04:11.810
Julie Ann Cairns: nearly went bankrupt. The global financial crisis

33
00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:21.439
Julie Ann Cairns: and it was a real wake up call for me, and at that that at that time, like I was absolutely terrified, absolutely terrified.

34
00:04:21.550 --> 00:04:24.349
Julie Ann Cairns: being on the verge of bankruptcy had had

35
00:04:24.810 --> 00:04:33.459
Julie Ann Cairns: about 3 million dollars in debt. That was due like immediately, and no bank would re finance us because of the global

36
00:04:33.560 --> 00:04:36.070
Julie Ann Cairns: financial crisis. So this was business debt.

37
00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:45.220
Julie Ann Cairns: anyhow. yeah, didn't really know what to do, and I recognize this feeling of terror in my stomach

38
00:04:46.650 --> 00:04:50.310
Julie Ann Cairns: related to a feeling I had had when I was 11 years old.

39
00:04:50.660 --> 00:05:02.450
Julie Ann Cairns: and my parents had broken up, and so i'd growing up in Canada in a very prosperous family, and like wealthy, wealthy family. We had our own airplanes, that kind of well

40
00:05:02.540 --> 00:05:03.800
Julie Ann Cairns: and

41
00:05:03.870 --> 00:05:08.760
Julie Ann Cairns: and when I was 11 my parents broke up, and then by the time I was 13

42
00:05:08.910 --> 00:05:19.990
Julie Ann Cairns: mit ctl, and my mother, my dad had gone back to Australia. My mother had declared bankruptcy, and so i'd gone from this incredibly prosperous, wealthy life to us, being assisted by welfare 150,

43
00:05:20.330 --> 00:05:23.110
Julie Ann Cairns: and it was completely shoe on the other foot.

44
00:05:23.470 --> 00:05:28.190
Julie Ann Cairns: And when I had this experience in 2,008. I recognized.

45
00:05:28.250 --> 00:05:36.050
Julie Ann Cairns: Wow! The feeling I have right now in 2,008 is the same as when I was a kid in my entire world fell apart.

46
00:05:36.720 --> 00:05:40.729
Julie Ann Cairns: and and I had just had this light bulb moment, and it was Wow!

47
00:05:40.920 --> 00:05:41.780
Julie Ann Cairns: Hmm!

48
00:05:42.520 --> 00:05:50.110
Julie Ann Cairns: Actually, I've had a couple of gains and lost cycles in my life of like radical game and loss, you know, up

49
00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:54.390
Julie Ann Cairns: 1 million or so dollars down millions or so dollars.

50
00:05:54.750 --> 00:05:56.280
Julie Ann Cairns: I wonder if this

51
00:05:56.430 --> 00:05:58.470
Julie Ann Cairns: crazy gain and lost thing

52
00:05:58.520 --> 00:06:04.890
Julie Ann Cairns: is my normal because of my childhood. I wonder if that's what I expect and believe

53
00:06:04.930 --> 00:06:06.859
Julie Ann Cairns: is the way that the world goes

54
00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:08.770
Julie Ann Cairns: and so that

55
00:06:08.980 --> 00:06:11.669
Julie Ann Cairns: aha moment, and we go -oh!

56
00:06:11.730 --> 00:06:15.140
Julie Ann Cairns: I do not want to be on this roller coaster for the rest of my life.

57
00:06:15.910 --> 00:06:26.150
Julie Ann Cairns: even if I get out of this situation, I certainly don't want to be hitting another just another, you know. Massive up and down roller coaster ride in the future. So I have to figure out

58
00:06:26.420 --> 00:06:31.129
Julie Ann Cairns: what is driving this. What beliefs have I got on board? And how can I change them?

59
00:06:31.920 --> 00:06:42.299
Julie Ann Cairns: And so that drove me into figuring out you know, really diving into the subconscious how the subconscious works. How do you reprogram beliefs?

60
00:06:42.490 --> 00:07:01.430
Julie Ann Cairns: And you know I didn't have much time because I was the president of bankruptcy. So it was rather urgent. So I kind of worked on this stuff really fast. I'm like I need a fast method. I can't, You know I don't have 20 years to spend in therapy here. Okay, I need a fast method to sort this out

61
00:07:01.440 --> 00:07:02.840
Julie Ann Cairns: as soon as possible.

62
00:07:03.320 --> 00:07:06.079
Julie Ann Cairns: And so yeah, I I

63
00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:14.470
Julie Ann Cairns: was given a book called the Power of your Subconscious Mind, by Joseph Murphy, which was written in 1,963,

64
00:07:14.710 --> 00:07:22.050
Julie Ann Cairns: and I pretty much followed that as a recipe book and a bunch of other books that I then found

65
00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:22.960
Julie Ann Cairns: and

66
00:07:23.030 --> 00:07:27.850
Julie Ann Cairns: within I was able to turn the business around with my business partner

67
00:07:28.130 --> 00:07:30.199
Julie Ann Cairns: and not go bankrupt.

68
00:07:30.320 --> 00:07:33.550
Julie Ann Cairns: and we went from being 3 million dollars in debt

69
00:07:33.650 --> 00:07:36.309
Julie Ann Cairns: in 2,008 to

70
00:07:36.890 --> 00:07:41.080
Julie Ann Cairns: the debt fully paid off, and 3 million dollars in cash in the bank

71
00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:51.309
Julie Ann Cairns: by 2,012. So within 4 years, in an economy that was, you know, essentially a recession post, the global financial crisis

72
00:07:51.510 --> 00:07:56.200
Julie Ann Cairns: so that was a massive turnaround and taught me the power of the subconscious.

73
00:07:56.800 --> 00:08:07.410
Jane Atkinson: it is so powerful, it is so powerful. I saw time and time again in my own life and in clients life during Covid.

74
00:08:07.580 --> 00:08:14.579
Jane Atkinson: How, if you can stop and recognize that you have gone into a fear spiral

75
00:08:14.780 --> 00:08:26.109
Jane Atkinson: that you can start to make the ship. But I, if you don't identify it. Then what happens? Do you just keep going? I mean exactly. You have hit on the number. One thing

76
00:08:26.950 --> 00:08:31.329
Julie Ann Cairns: I mean, really there's 3 steps to believe change. The first is identify.

77
00:08:31.620 --> 00:08:35.029
Julie Ann Cairns: the second is weekend.

78
00:08:35.530 --> 00:08:41.989
Julie Ann Cairns: whatever the the limiting belief is weak in it, and the third is, replace it with a more helpful belief.

79
00:08:42.049 --> 00:08:44.820
Julie Ann Cairns: but the hardest step is identify.

80
00:08:44.980 --> 00:08:50.600
Julie Ann Cairns: and you know you can spend your whole life not identifying what it is that's holding you back.

81
00:08:50.950 --> 00:09:08.290
Julie Ann Cairns: and so this is where Why, I, after coming through that experience, and you know, getting back on my P, getting back to prosperity and abundance, dealing with the codes, the subconscious codes that had been holding me back and creating this crazy gain and lost cycle my entire life.

82
00:09:09.640 --> 00:09:17.060
Julie Ann Cairns: I wanted to share what I what I had discovered with the world. And one of the things I realized in my reading was that

83
00:09:17.480 --> 00:09:21.000
Julie Ann Cairns: there was a lot of a lot of discussion about. Well, what

84
00:09:21.450 --> 00:09:32.940
Julie Ann Cairns: how do you? How do you reprogram a belief according to those essentially everything I read Boil down to those 3 steps I just described. It's identify, we can and replace.

85
00:09:33.590 --> 00:09:41.589
Julie Ann Cairns: But what are they? How do you identify them? What are the beliefs? So I wanted to, contribute

86
00:09:41.820 --> 00:09:47.610
Julie Ann Cairns: to that sort of field by identifying the top 7 limiting beliefs about money.

87
00:09:49.090 --> 00:10:01.459
Julie Ann Cairns: because that identification step would help people a lot. And I had a wonderful lab because my business was teaching people how to trade the stock market, and they were dealing with their money beliefs every single day.

88
00:10:01.650 --> 00:10:13.130
Julie Ann Cairns: You know, trading them financial markets is a way to push on your limiting beliefs over and over again. It is like 95% mindset.

89
00:10:13.150 --> 00:10:14.470
Jane Atkinson: my brother. Actually.

90
00:10:14.570 --> 00:10:20.629
Jane Atkinson: he said, that you really have to decide ahead of time. You know where your limits are going to be

91
00:10:20.690 --> 00:10:43.069
Jane Atkinson: to them, because if you get involved in your emotionally and your trades, you're done for. So I think that's so, You know I have like a very light light version of what you talked about. When I was growing up we lived on the street with all the doctors and lawyers. My dad was an engineer, but he got laid off from his job at age 55,

92
00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:44.240
Jane Atkinson: and

93
00:10:44.490 --> 00:11:03.180
Jane Atkinson: to see him go into like a T about a 10 year depression as a result of that, and I do have to wonder I wouldn't say we went through major hardship so definitely not the same situation as yours. But I have to wonder what kind of things that lodged into my brain

94
00:11:03.350 --> 00:11:04.990
Julie Ann Cairns: about

95
00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:08.489
Julie Ann Cairns: and about safety and financial security.

96
00:11:08.850 --> 00:11:22.859
Jane Atkinson: Exactly exactly how much makes sure. okay. So we've got our 3 things identify, awakened, and replacing. You just mentioned this weekend. We can not awaken.

97
00:11:23.260 --> 00:11:25.810
Julie Ann Cairns: identify, we can

98
00:11:25.960 --> 00:11:27.240
Julie Ann Cairns: and replace.

99
00:11:27.490 --> 00:11:30.530
Jane Atkinson: Okay, Got it? Got it? Yeah, that's important.

100
00:11:30.690 --> 00:11:32.969
Jane Atkinson: That's good.

101
00:11:33.630 --> 00:11:45.789
Jane Atkinson: Now, before I think we can maybe have time to dive into 3 of the 7. But let's just talk about how big a role does opportunity play in a person's ability to access abundance.

102
00:11:46.720 --> 00:12:02.430
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah, it can play a big role. So you know, this is. This is one of the criticisms that you will hear about. You know abundance, mindset, and manifestation, and all that sort of stuff is, you know, not. Everyone has the same opportunities.

103
00:12:02.800 --> 00:12:05.589
Julie Ann Cairns: and that is that is absolutely true.

104
00:12:05.840 --> 00:12:11.289
Julie Ann Cairns: and not Don't want to debate that right like it's just like the way that

105
00:12:11.330 --> 00:12:17.099
Julie Ann Cairns: you know. Men and women face different opportunities in the workplace.

106
00:12:17.510 --> 00:12:24.330
Julie Ann Cairns: Right, you know. Women still do not have equal opportunity in the workplace. So I would call that

107
00:12:24.890 --> 00:12:28.880
Julie Ann Cairns: environment that you're working in the collective abundance.

108
00:12:29.940 --> 00:12:40.820
Julie Ann Cairns: So you know, people of color have a different collective abundance. you know environment than white people of privilege to

109
00:12:42.340 --> 00:12:46.250
Julie Ann Cairns: that's absolutely true. And at the same time

110
00:12:46.270 --> 00:12:54.959
Julie Ann Cairns: we can improve our access to abundance by working on our own internal stories and beliefs.

111
00:12:55.170 --> 00:12:57.180
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah.

112
00:12:57.420 --> 00:13:13.949
Jane Atkinson: we're not talking about generation or generational wealth or anything like that. Lot of people are really starting from, you know the ground level and trying to work their way up. They've identified that they think they can have a better life for themselves.

113
00:13:13.960 --> 00:13:26.210
Jane Atkinson: But maybe Don't have, you know, a lot of people around them to give the a leg up, and I love that. So Step Number One is really to start doing that internal work

114
00:13:26.310 --> 00:13:27.879
Julie Ann Cairns: do an inventory.

115
00:13:27.970 --> 00:13:30.589
Julie Ann Cairns: basically is step number one

116
00:13:30.670 --> 00:13:50.220
Julie Ann Cairns: pretty much, you know. and this is something that I take people through in my book. It's a very practical book. Chapter By chapter we go over what are the top? 7 limiting beliefs about money, and at the end of each chapter is like a bunch of questions, reflection, questions that help you get to the root of

117
00:13:50.290 --> 00:13:53.100
Julie Ann Cairns: how that belief might have shown up in your life.

118
00:13:53.550 --> 00:14:01.270
Julie Ann Cairns: Well whether it's shown up in your life. I most people find that actually they have some version of all 7 money

119
00:14:01.400 --> 00:14:14.269
Julie Ann Cairns: going on in in their you know source code in their subconscious code. And that's really why I called it the Abundance Code, because we are rewiring our subconscious code, which is like

120
00:14:14.380 --> 00:14:27.649
Julie Ann Cairns: Mit Ctl. And it's like a software update. It really is. It's like we're going through the code that we inherited from our parents that they inherited from their parents, and let's be clear. This is calm down the generations 150.

121
00:14:27.790 --> 00:14:33.369
Julie Ann Cairns: Some of these beliefs have come from times of extreme scarcity, like the great depression.

122
00:14:34.790 --> 00:14:42.249
Julie Ann Cairns: you know, and then compound on that many of our own experiences of, say, the 2,008 recession. And

123
00:14:42.260 --> 00:14:55.229
Julie Ann Cairns: you know, Covid and all of the problems and issues in the world that we're facing now, so those can just trigger these beliefs that are already in there because they were coded from our grandparents and

124
00:14:55.400 --> 00:14:57.590
Julie Ann Cairns: and great grandparents, and so on.

125
00:14:58.450 --> 00:15:02.230
Julie Ann Cairns: So it is really important to get in there and go. What

126
00:15:02.270 --> 00:15:05.610
Julie Ann Cairns: What is my source code on, you know.

127
00:15:05.640 --> 00:15:08.839
Julie Ann Cairns: in terms of money and abundance.

128
00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:13.779
Julie Ann Cairns: And how can I change that source code? Because we cannot.

129
00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:15.290
Julie Ann Cairns: cannot

130
00:15:15.320 --> 00:15:18.950
Julie Ann Cairns: bring forth something that is contrary to our

131
00:15:19.010 --> 00:15:20.710
Julie Ann Cairns: subconscious beliefs.

132
00:15:21.830 --> 00:15:26.629
Jane Atkinson: we cannot bring forward something that is contrary

133
00:15:26.770 --> 00:15:29.050
Jane Atkinson: to our subconscious beliefs.

134
00:15:29.140 --> 00:15:30.310
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah. So

135
00:15:30.540 --> 00:15:40.349
Jane Atkinson: if you want something in your life, you're saying, bring it forward. You want it. You're putting it out there. What I want, You dreamboard it!

136
00:15:40.490 --> 00:15:42.260
Julie Ann Cairns: You do all the things.

137
00:15:42.460 --> 00:15:47.180
Jane Atkinson: And still, if it's still not showing up, that is telling you.

138
00:15:47.270 --> 00:15:51.789
Julie Ann Cairns: There is a belief on board that is blocking you or sabotaging you

139
00:15:52.400 --> 00:16:04.399
Jane Atkinson: the leaf on board. I I I do not want that. well, maybe I do want that bumper sticker if I can make it positive belief on board, you know, like the baby on board one.

140
00:16:04.790 --> 00:16:08.059
Jane Atkinson: Okay, so these first of all.

141
00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:25.770
Jane Atkinson: tell people where they need to go. Get this book, because I think that the abundance code, how to bus the 7 money, miss, for a rich life now is absolute. Must have reading for all of our listeners. Where's the best place for them to buy it?

142
00:16:26.120 --> 00:16:35.510
Julie Ann Cairns: Amazon. I guess it's just you you can visit. I have a site for the book called the Abundance Code Bookcom

143
00:16:35.940 --> 00:16:46.619
Julie Ann Cairns: and that gives you links of where you can buy it. And also, you know, you can sign up for free video series if you want to know more about where what these beliefs are and where they came from.

144
00:16:46.760 --> 00:16:53.389
Jane Atkinson: I love it all right, so we have time to go through 3 of your favorite

145
00:16:53.490 --> 00:16:58.279
Jane Atkinson: myths that you wanna but bus, tell me what

146
00:17:03.320 --> 00:17:06.519
Julie Ann Cairns: mythbusters okay, what's number? Okay?

147
00:17:06.829 --> 00:17:09.950
Julie Ann Cairns: Well, number one is really the the myth.

148
00:17:09.970 --> 00:17:11.649
Julie Ann Cairns: That is,

149
00:17:12.060 --> 00:17:14.920
Julie Ann Cairns: this, the origin myth of

150
00:17:14.940 --> 00:17:18.740
Julie Ann Cairns: you know, these 7 money. Myths are kind of a system of beliefs.

151
00:17:18.770 --> 00:17:23.170
Julie Ann Cairns: but it all starts with this first belief that we take on.

152
00:17:23.410 --> 00:17:26.740
Julie Ann Cairns: and it is the belief that there is not enough.

153
00:17:27.650 --> 00:17:31.890
Julie Ann Cairns: It is the belief in scarcity. There is not enough to go around.

154
00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:38.770
Julie Ann Cairns: There is not enough for me. There is not enough for everyone. If I have more, someone has to have less

155
00:17:39.060 --> 00:17:39.810
Julie Ann Cairns: right.

156
00:17:39.830 --> 00:17:49.330
Julie Ann Cairns: not we can all have more. No, if I have more, someone has to have less. This is a limited system, and there is essentially not enough.

157
00:17:49.890 --> 00:17:54.540
Julie Ann Cairns: And so what that causes is, if I if I want more, and you know

158
00:17:54.820 --> 00:18:01.319
Julie Ann Cairns: I want things right. I want things in my life. If I want more to have more than my neighbor.

159
00:18:01.770 --> 00:18:06.399
Julie Ann Cairns: then, if I believe in scarcity, what that tells me is okay.

160
00:18:06.890 --> 00:18:10.410
Julie Ann Cairns: i'm in competition. Here we are in competition.

161
00:18:10.630 --> 00:18:16.000
Julie Ann Cairns: If I get a bigger piece of the pie, you're gonna have less. It's probably gonna make you annoyed.

162
00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:26.599
Julie Ann Cairns: you're not gonna like it, and I have to be defensive. I have to be competitive. It kicks up all kinds of emotions like envy, jealousy, comparisonitis.

163
00:18:26.640 --> 00:18:27.690
Julie Ann Cairns: You know

164
00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:32.330
Julie Ann Cairns: all of that. All of that stuff springs out of there is not enough.

165
00:18:32.600 --> 00:18:36.869
Julie Ann Cairns: whereas if I have a belief, a fundamental belief.

166
00:18:37.350 --> 00:18:41.159
Julie Ann Cairns: there is enough. There will always be enough.

167
00:18:41.800 --> 00:18:47.780
Julie Ann Cairns: There's enough for me. There's enough for you, then that allows a space

168
00:18:48.180 --> 00:18:49.810
Julie Ann Cairns: for collaboration

169
00:18:50.980 --> 00:18:52.619
Julie Ann Cairns: as opposed to competition

170
00:18:52.810 --> 00:18:54.669
Julie Ann Cairns: for creativity.

171
00:18:54.960 --> 00:18:55.980
Julie Ann Cairns: For

172
00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:56.939
Julie Ann Cairns: you know.

173
00:18:56.970 --> 00:18:59.170
Julie Ann Cairns: thinking outside the box.

174
00:18:59.490 --> 00:19:05.240
Julie Ann Cairns: instead of getting stuck in this. There's only one path to success, and you know I have to, you know.

175
00:19:05.510 --> 00:19:13.889
Julie Ann Cairns: work hard at school and go to college, and da da da da, whereas a bun is thinking allows us to open up and go Well, maybe there's some other ways.

176
00:19:14.530 --> 00:19:15.710
Julie Ann Cairns: If there's

177
00:19:15.740 --> 00:19:19.630
Julie Ann Cairns: plenty to go around them, there's plenty for me and my way

178
00:19:20.060 --> 00:19:21.669
Julie Ann Cairns: which might not be your way.

179
00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:37.890
Jane Atkinson: Maybe there's some other way I love that. So the myth is that kind of ingrained belief that a lot of us don't even know that is in there. But of course you know for me personally, I would say, is in there somewhere for sure.

180
00:19:37.900 --> 00:19:51.109
Jane Atkinson: because i'm not financially exactly where I would like to be. So there's gotta be something at the root of that a belief in scarcity that I have not flipped the switch on yet for sure.

181
00:19:51.550 --> 00:19:58.580
Jane Atkinson: So the scarcity is Number One Number 2 is one of my favorites Go ahead and talk about that

182
00:19:59.270 --> 00:20:02.349
Julie Ann Cairns: Number 2 is the belief that time is money.

183
00:20:02.580 --> 00:20:08.299
Julie Ann Cairns: and so if I want more money, the only way to get more money is to exchange more time.

184
00:20:08.770 --> 00:20:09.620
Julie Ann Cairns: you know.

185
00:20:09.870 --> 00:20:20.669
Julie Ann Cairns: and that is limited inherently, because there is, there is only 24 h in in a day. So that's not a belief. That is a fact. There's 24 h in a day.

186
00:20:20.820 --> 00:20:21.640
Julie Ann Cairns: Right

187
00:20:21.740 --> 00:20:23.250
Julie Ann Cairns: we have

188
00:20:23.330 --> 00:20:28.229
Julie Ann Cairns: our lifespan. We don't even know how long it is so we have. We do have

189
00:20:28.620 --> 00:20:31.250
Julie Ann Cairns: our limited time on this birth.

190
00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:38.160
Julie Ann Cairns: And so, if I believe that time is money, then there is inherently a limit to how much

191
00:20:38.300 --> 00:20:49.139
Julie Ann Cairns: money I can get, because I only have so much time. So cracking the back of that belief says, Well, actually, there are ways to get money that don't require my time. And what are they?

192
00:20:50.150 --> 00:20:52.869
Julie Ann Cairns: What are the ways, you know? If I invest.

193
00:20:52.920 --> 00:20:59.189
Julie Ann Cairns: for example, you know my current business is investment properties that I rent out on Airbnb.

194
00:20:59.220 --> 00:21:02.729
Julie Ann Cairns: So last night I was safely tucked up in my bed.

195
00:21:02.770 --> 00:21:04.630
Julie Ann Cairns: and I had a bunch of money

196
00:21:05.110 --> 00:21:07.070
Julie Ann Cairns: coming into my bank account.

197
00:21:07.200 --> 00:21:09.730
Julie Ann Cairns: because all my houses were full

198
00:21:10.500 --> 00:21:18.190
Julie Ann Cairns: right. So that's that's an example of I'm making money in my sleep. It is not. It is not a time for money equation.

199
00:21:19.110 --> 00:21:29.499
Jane Atkinson: I love that so much, and I I really was grateful. Having heard Dan Sullivan, who was been one of my mentors over time.

200
00:21:29.800 --> 00:21:34.109
Jane Atkinson: Talk about stop trading your time as speakers

201
00:21:34.460 --> 00:21:47.800
Jane Atkinson: stop trading your time for money. You can only do so many speeches in a year. Let's figure out how we're going to create wealth outside of trading time for money.

202
00:21:47.810 --> 00:22:17.019
Jane Atkinson: So maybe there's books. Maybe there's, you know, projects that you could be doing that are bigger than and not requiring just you and your time. Maybe there are membership sites and courses, and you know there's a lot of ideas for us. Maybe there are investments that we can make outside of the industry that will allow us to stop trading our time for money. I think the time is money. One

203
00:22:17.070 --> 00:22:22.089
Jane Atkinson: is something that people may have locked down, and they don't even recognize that they have that.

204
00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:23.310
Julie Ann Cairns: Let me

205
00:22:23.330 --> 00:22:36.370
Jane Atkinson: that and start thinking about. You know we really have grown our business through our school and our mastermind, and things like that, and books product sales has been huge for us.

206
00:22:36.380 --> 00:22:46.100
Jane Atkinson: and will continue to be huge for us as we launch another book next year. So I love that time is money. let's talk about Number 3.

207
00:22:47.190 --> 00:22:55.620
Julie Ann Cairns: So number 3 is actually not number 3 in the book, but it is one of my favorite ones, because it is linked

208
00:22:55.920 --> 00:22:57.809
Julie Ann Cairns: to this Time is money

209
00:22:57.880 --> 00:22:58.950
Julie Ann Cairns: concept.

210
00:22:58.990 --> 00:23:01.729
Julie Ann Cairns: and it's the idea that money.

211
00:23:02.470 --> 00:23:04.400
Julie Ann Cairns: more money, more problems.

212
00:23:04.500 --> 00:23:08.090
Julie Ann Cairns: Essentially. money is easy. Come, easy.

213
00:23:08.300 --> 00:23:10.409
easy Go is another belief

214
00:23:10.820 --> 00:23:14.550
Julie Ann Cairns: that people have. Okay, and that's in between, you know.

215
00:23:14.970 --> 00:23:21.059
Julie Ann Cairns: This time is money, and this next belief. The next belief i'm talking about is

216
00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:26.179
Julie Ann Cairns: money won't make me happy. It's going to bring me drama. It's going to be made problems.

217
00:23:26.510 --> 00:23:36.450
Julie Ann Cairns: And so it. You will probably have this if you think that time is money, because if you want to have more money. Then you have to exchange more time, and you lose the balance in your life.

218
00:23:36.730 --> 00:23:40.090
Julie Ann Cairns: And so then it is more money, more problems, right.

219
00:23:40.490 --> 00:23:45.279
Julie Ann Cairns: and money doesn't make me happy. That is something that you trigger when you don't

220
00:23:45.680 --> 00:23:48.600
Julie Ann Cairns: deal with the time as money believe first.

221
00:23:49.550 --> 00:23:57.990
Jane Atkinson: So more money, more problems. I I've built it right into my 2,023 motto.

222
00:23:58.190 --> 00:24:06.969
Jane Atkinson: which is business in life profitable and easy on my terms. I've got profitable in there.

223
00:24:07.040 --> 00:24:18.389
Jane Atkinson: and I've got easy in there because I I wanna say, people who are just starting out in the business, please be aware of when you are over complicating your life.

224
00:24:18.440 --> 00:24:34.280
Jane Atkinson: because then that more pro, more money, more problems, actually does become true. But I believe that there's a way, and you clearly have found the way to earn a lot of money without a lot of problems.

225
00:24:34.290 --> 00:24:41.700
Jane Atkinson: What say say more about that? And I love this Airbnb idea. I think that's so good.

226
00:24:43.250 --> 00:24:54.690
Julie Ann Cairns: Well, I think the the key to it First, as you know, this is this is my mantra. Deal with your subconscious beliefs first, because often people will ask.

227
00:24:54.760 --> 00:24:57.779
Julie Ann Cairns: What is it that I should be doing differently?

228
00:24:58.200 --> 00:25:00.639
Julie Ann Cairns: And that is the wrong question.

229
00:25:00.750 --> 00:25:04.729
Julie Ann Cairns: The right question is, what is it that I should believe differently.

230
00:25:05.120 --> 00:25:08.370
Jane Atkinson: What is it that I should believe differently?

231
00:25:09.610 --> 00:25:10.620
Jane Atkinson: I love it

232
00:25:11.860 --> 00:25:17.720
Julie Ann Cairns: so. Instead of what should I do differently? What should I believe differently? Because I can tell you the how

233
00:25:17.770 --> 00:25:19.890
Julie Ann Cairns: you know. I can tell you my how

234
00:25:20.250 --> 00:25:29.379
Julie Ann Cairns: you know which is a lot to do with investment. not just in the property, but also the stock market. And

235
00:25:29.720 --> 00:25:32.230
Julie Ann Cairns: the greatest investment I ever made

236
00:25:32.330 --> 00:25:34.370
Julie Ann Cairns: was the investment in my mindset.

237
00:25:34.700 --> 00:25:37.570
Julie Ann Cairns: and I would still be on.

238
00:25:37.700 --> 00:25:41.229
Julie Ann Cairns: I knew how to make money. That was never my problem.

239
00:25:41.420 --> 00:25:50.450
Julie Ann Cairns: Actually, it was never my problem. I was on a roller coaster of gain and loss, and i'm talking millions of dollars at a time, gain and lost 200

240
00:25:50.700 --> 00:25:54.009
Julie Ann Cairns: until I fixed my subconscious code.

241
00:25:55.420 --> 00:26:06.599
Jane Atkinson: So good, and I remember another one of my mentors, saying, You know, learning how to keep money is important. And that was a big opener

242
00:26:06.720 --> 00:26:22.890
Jane Atkinson: 3 years ago, actually, at the beginning of Covid. that was my goal was to have this comfort funds set aside so that I could ease that scarcity mindset that, you know, just came naturally to me.

243
00:26:23.360 --> 00:26:24.290
Julie Ann Cairns: Yes.

244
00:26:24.340 --> 00:26:31.149
Julie Ann Cairns: and I mean, here's another belief that plays into all that money is hard to make.

245
00:26:31.530 --> 00:26:36.429
Julie Ann Cairns: which is really this. This similar to to there is not enough.

246
00:26:36.820 --> 00:26:39.690
Julie Ann Cairns: you know you have to work hard for your money.

247
00:26:40.130 --> 00:26:53.589
Julie Ann Cairns: So this this all ties in the time is money. Money is hard to make. You have to work hard for your money, and even you know, if you get money that you didn't work hard for do you really deserve it?

248
00:26:54.140 --> 00:26:56.409
Julie Ann Cairns: That's another little hidden

249
00:26:56.610 --> 00:27:05.769
Julie Ann Cairns: belief in there about my inherent deserving this as well. So there's a lot to unpack when you start on packet. There is a lot to unpack.

250
00:27:05.800 --> 00:27:11.040
Julie Ann Cairns: and that is part of the reason I wanted to write the book to just help people unpack it.

251
00:27:11.180 --> 00:27:13.659
Julie Ann Cairns: because there are layers to this.

252
00:27:14.420 --> 00:27:34.370
Jane Atkinson: It's it's so important. I wrote a story I'm just in the middle of getting ready to launch my my sixth book. It's called the Wealthy Speaker, 3 Point, 0, and I shared a story about imploding a job where I was making too much money, and didn't think that I deserved it. You know there was a

253
00:27:34.380 --> 00:27:40.790
Jane Atkinson: people in this company, and I was often the last one to leave at night, and I worked. My

254
00:27:40.930 --> 00:27:44.190
Jane Atkinson: good I what

255
00:27:44.350 --> 00:28:01.109
Jane Atkinson: It came so quickly. I went from, you know I just didn't think I deserved it. And so what did I do? I blew it up, and I started out again that kind of pro and had to build my way back up. It really interesting to go backwards and

256
00:28:01.120 --> 00:28:07.930
Jane Atkinson: notice what had happened. When I didn't think I was deserving. There's gotta be something in your

257
00:28:08.200 --> 00:28:09.990
about

258
00:28:10.180 --> 00:28:17.950
Jane Atkinson: the level of deserveability people. We? Why do we inherently start by thinking we deserve nothing.

259
00:28:18.220 --> 00:28:26.450
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah. Well, this is the generational programming. And you know, I think that that's something to understand is that,

260
00:28:26.880 --> 00:28:28.240
Julie Ann Cairns: essentially.

261
00:28:28.380 --> 00:28:37.920
Julie Ann Cairns: most of the people that you will meet have come from the working classes, I mean, the middle class is a new thing, right? The middle class is a new thing.

262
00:28:37.940 --> 00:28:40.879
Julie Ann Cairns: Generationally we came from

263
00:28:40.920 --> 00:28:43.559
Julie Ann Cairns: most of us from working class roots

264
00:28:43.590 --> 00:28:49.699
Julie Ann Cairns: and those working-class roots. If you weren't part of the aristocracy and the landed gentry.

265
00:28:49.790 --> 00:28:53.859
Julie Ann Cairns: right, they have a whole different set of beliefs. Their beliefs

266
00:28:54.020 --> 00:29:01.930
Julie Ann Cairns: whole other story right. If you weren't part of that, then you inherited beliefs that were designed to

267
00:29:02.410 --> 00:29:03.850
Julie Ann Cairns: keep you down

268
00:29:04.210 --> 00:29:08.279
Julie Ann Cairns: that were designed to have you accept your lot in life

269
00:29:08.380 --> 00:29:12.519
Julie Ann Cairns: that we're designed to have you not question and rebel

270
00:29:12.720 --> 00:29:17.499
Julie Ann Cairns: against the power structures that were in place to keep people poor.

271
00:29:17.860 --> 00:29:18.640
Julie Ann Cairns: right?

272
00:29:18.690 --> 00:29:25.260
Julie Ann Cairns: And so, you know, we've had this wonderful Renaissance, I guess of. You know the middle class.

273
00:29:26.550 --> 00:29:30.170
Julie Ann Cairns: and you could. You could definitely argue that, you know, on a

274
00:29:30.230 --> 00:29:40.660
Julie Ann Cairns: societal level. We're kind of going backwards and regressing back a little bit, maybe to that, you know. Great wealth divide that existed in an aristocratic times.

275
00:29:41.370 --> 00:29:44.810
Julie Ann Cairns: so it's more important than ever

276
00:29:45.040 --> 00:29:53.899
Julie Ann Cairns: that we revise our beliefs and not get caught again in that belief system that holds us down and holds us back.

277
00:29:54.420 --> 00:29:59.610
Jane Atkinson: What do you say to people who say? Well, it's easy for you.

278
00:30:00.200 --> 00:30:06.199
Jane Atkinson: It's easy for you, You, you know, had this or

279
00:30:06.400 --> 00:30:15.550
Jane Atkinson: this for a job, or you know you've built this thing, whatever it might be. What? What? What do, what's the answer to it's easy for you?

280
00:30:16.730 --> 00:30:19.929
Julie Ann Cairns: The answer to? It's easy for you is, everyone

281
00:30:19.970 --> 00:30:24.389
Julie Ann Cairns: comes in with their own set of starting conditions.

282
00:30:24.830 --> 00:30:25.689
Julie Ann Cairns: you know.

283
00:30:26.050 --> 00:30:32.360
Julie Ann Cairns: and not not. Everyone starts in the same place. That is absolutely true.

284
00:30:32.490 --> 00:30:33.330
Julie Ann Cairns: Okay.

285
00:30:33.580 --> 00:30:38.320
Julie Ann Cairns: not. Everyone starts with the same opportunities. However, everyone.

286
00:30:38.690 --> 00:30:44.040
Julie Ann Cairns: This is the great leveler. Everyone can do their subconscious reprogramming work.

287
00:30:44.470 --> 00:30:46.250
Julie Ann Cairns: Everyone can do that.

288
00:30:46.380 --> 00:30:47.930
Julie Ann Cairns: and you can.

289
00:30:48.020 --> 00:30:51.559
Julie Ann Cairns: If you do that, you can leapfrog

290
00:30:52.010 --> 00:30:57.140
Julie Ann Cairns: quite rapidly over people who had better starting conditions than you.

291
00:30:57.210 --> 00:31:00.210
Julie Ann Cairns: But didn't do their subconscious reprogramming work.

292
00:31:00.740 --> 00:31:20.119
Jane Atkinson: So good. Okay. So let's go back to the 3 again. First, we need to identify that, hey? We got something that's just not serving us very well. There's a thought. There's a mindset that needs to be busted. Then we need to weaken it. What? What

293
00:31:20.130 --> 00:31:24.740
Jane Atkinson: for? Weakening Something negative that you might have as a belief.

294
00:31:24.820 --> 00:31:25.620
Julie Ann Cairns: Yeah.

295
00:31:26.060 --> 00:31:30.790
Julie Ann Cairns: Well, this is actually a process. I run in the book, and I i'm not.

296
00:31:31.240 --> 00:31:38.629
Julie Ann Cairns: I'm. I'm not over to about it in the book. But i'm running a so subconscious reprogramming process while you read the book.

297
00:31:38.770 --> 00:31:48.329
Julie Ann Cairns: So i'm, I'm: basically taking you through these 3 steps, I help you identify what are the top? 7 limiting beliefs? And then in each chapter

298
00:31:48.390 --> 00:32:07.299
Julie Ann Cairns: I do the weakening for you. So when i'm one of my strengths is, I have a background as an economic researcher. That was my my training, You know. I spent 9 years at university, and i'm very well trained as a researcher. So I use my research skills in my

299
00:32:07.310 --> 00:32:14.629
Julie Ann Cairns: you know skills in constructing an argument to argue the counter case against the belief.

300
00:32:15.190 --> 00:32:34.630
Julie Ann Cairns: So we take each belief. You know the belief. Let's look at the belief that there is not not enough to go around and I go Well, Really, is that true? Here's this evidence. And here's that evidence. And here's some more evidence that there is enough to go around that we live in an abundant world, that we have more access to a bonus than ever before.

301
00:32:34.890 --> 00:32:40.379
Julie Ann Cairns: so that's how we weaken is we? What the simplest way is. Argue the counter case

302
00:32:40.470 --> 00:32:46.169
Julie Ann Cairns: so that you all you have to do is just crack the back of the belief, the

303
00:32:46.300 --> 00:32:50.449
Julie Ann Cairns: in which you hold the belief in your mind. We just crack the back of it.

304
00:32:50.630 --> 00:32:52.670
Julie Ann Cairns: That crack lets the light in.

305
00:32:52.860 --> 00:32:55.080
Julie Ann Cairns: and then the light does the rest.

306
00:32:55.300 --> 00:32:57.510
Julie Ann Cairns: So then.

307
00:32:57.860 --> 00:33:01.560
Julie Ann Cairns: we we put on top of that correct belief

308
00:33:01.660 --> 00:33:03.070
Julie Ann Cairns: a new belief

309
00:33:03.580 --> 00:33:20.460
Julie Ann Cairns: that is positive that supports our goals that supports what we want. That is well constructed, and I go through how to how to do a well formed belief in the book, because that's also important. You want to don't want to put a new limitation in place. You want your new belief to be unlimited.

310
00:33:20.840 --> 00:33:23.090
Julie Ann Cairns: and and truly abundant.

311
00:33:23.190 --> 00:33:28.029
Julie Ann Cairns: So then you you put that new belief on top, and you just work it in.

312
00:33:28.190 --> 00:33:29.020
Julie Ann Cairns: and it

313
00:33:29.090 --> 00:33:29.700
Julie Ann Cairns: it

314
00:33:29.810 --> 00:33:31.650
Julie Ann Cairns: then, with the crack

315
00:33:31.710 --> 00:33:34.400
Julie Ann Cairns: in the prior belief it can take

316
00:33:34.440 --> 00:33:43.810
Julie Ann Cairns: now. So this is a really interesting point, because this is something people say, Well, I've I've tried vision boards, and I've tried affirmations, and I've tried all that stuff.

317
00:33:44.030 --> 00:33:46.230
Julie Ann Cairns: and it has not stuck.

318
00:33:46.800 --> 00:33:52.020
Julie Ann Cairns: And the reason it has not stuck is because the prior belief was not correct

319
00:33:53.500 --> 00:33:59.880
Julie Ann Cairns: before you've stuck the new stuff on top, so it's kind of like. The analogy I give is like, okay.

320
00:34:00.020 --> 00:34:03.059
Julie Ann Cairns: if you have a room and it has a moldy wall.

321
00:34:03.760 --> 00:34:14.329
Julie Ann Cairns: You can make that moldy wall look better by just whacking some wallpaper on top of it right. But if you did not clean the mold off before you did that it will grow through.

322
00:34:14.920 --> 00:34:17.919
Julie Ann Cairns: and soon enough your wall will be moldy again.

323
00:34:18.420 --> 00:34:23.699
Julie Ann Cairns: But if you clean the wall before you put the wall paper on You're good.

324
00:34:24.409 --> 00:34:25.709
Julie Ann Cairns: So it's like that.

325
00:34:26.050 --> 00:34:39.810
Jane Atkinson: A little Tsp. We'll do the trick, and this is what it is required in terms of. We need some Tsp. For the mind also, in order to layer on some good positive beliefs.

326
00:34:39.969 --> 00:34:48.619
Jane Atkinson: Oh, well, I wanna say, shout out to Victoria Leban, I think that's who introduced this wasn't it? She is amazing. I love Victoria.

327
00:34:48.810 --> 00:34:49.600
