Your Hidden Wounds

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Roger.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

In some of your recent teachings you talk about uncovering what your areas of resistance are. I’ve been taking a close look at myself, and I notice that I resist being silly and vulnerable. I very much want to be a speaker, and I can see how this resistance is affecting my ability to really step into that. Any advice on how to break through this?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Roger and thanks for your question!

What’s so bad about being silly?

I’m asking you to answer for yourself, because hidden in the answer to that question is the wound you’re trying to protect.

Let me explain.

When you speak from stage, or in any instance where you’re influencing people, you must come from a place of authenticity.

This means allowing yourself to be vulnerable with your audience. Allow them to really see you, because in you showing them that vulnerability is okay, you give them permission to be vulnerable as well.

You make an immediate connection with a prospect and they know you can help them because you were able to do something that they are afraid of.

Are you afraid to be seen as silly because you worry about judgment? Are you concerned about what people think of you?

If so, you’re coming from a place of getting approval and acceptance rather than a place of helping someone else.

My recommendation is for you to begin embracing your silliness. Look at where you can share personal stories and

allow yourself to be more vulnerable.

Once you start doing this you’ll realize the impact it has on people, and you will gradually stop being afraid of the judgment.

A Paradigm Shift

A Paradigm Shift

If you’re reading this article, chances are you’ve reached a point in your life where what you want is colliding with what you think you can have.

You might feel dissatisfied with your life, upset at your prospects, tired of your job, whatever it might be, because you know that your life has a greater purpose than whatever you’re living right now.

You’re correct.

As I’ve discussed, we all have a specific purpose in life that we can step into. However, from a young age, we learn to deny that purpose and the desires connected to it. Why would anybody want to deny it?

The answer is simple, a fundamental fact of life:

When we’re born, we need to survive.

For the first years of our lives, we depend completely on our parents for all of our needs. Because everything we need comes from our parents—food, shelter, clothing, doctors visits, love—we, naturally, do whatever we can to make sure that they keep supporting us. Usually, this means that we learn and adapt to their mindset and their ways of behaving.

We value what they value, want what they want, and think how they think, all so that they will accept us and so we won’t feel threatened in our home.

Sounds great, right?

Except that’s not
our purpose.

Our purpose goes beyond that. However, when we’re young, we don’t recognize that we aren’t living true to our purpose, and we don’t recognize how dysfunctional this form of thinking is. We just keep trying to survive, trying to fit in, trying to be safe.

Ultimately, we’ve traded our purposes for safety.

To move forward, we have to sacrifice our illusion of safety, for our purpose.

I say illusion of safety because, the crazy thing is, we don’t have to make this trade. We will be safe—even more safe—living within our purpose and following our desires. How could we not be?

Our purpose resides to our spiritual DNA, it will always guide us towards more growth and more life.

Sadly, most people will go through their entire lives without realizing that they can live within their purpose, because it requires a lot of courage to do this. Any time that you begin to question the middle class mindset, your old paradigm of thinking, your subconscious mind will flare up.

Your subconscious has learned that there is one way to survive—whether that’s to fit in, go to Church, go to work, make your house payment—whatever it might be. As soon as you start to question these patterns, your subconscious thinks that you’re putting yourself in danger.

Those messages will get to your conscious mind, and, if you’re not aware of the way these processes work, you’ll stop going forward, and you’ll return to safety.

So, it takes a lot of courage to move away from where you feel safe. But, there is something good that comes from this impulse: you can follow your fear.

Usually, if the idea of making a specific change in your life scares you, then that’s exactly what you need to go out and do, because that fear is the middle class mindset trying to hold you back from your desires.

Follow your fear, step into your purpose, and you’ll start to see dramatic results.

And until next week…

I Literally Shrink

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Calle.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

Last weekend I attended a 4th of July party, and while I was there, several prominent business owners (who I look up to) arrived.

I immediately shut down and avoided any and all eye contact and conversation with these people.

It was CRAZY.

I literally saw myself get smaller, quieter and more invisible the longer I was there. Eventually I left without saying anything to anyone.

Do you have any suggestions that might help me from repeating this the next time this happens?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Calle,

The key to recognize that your thoughts and actions are coming from a place of your core wound…

You “disappeared” because of a core wound that says you’re not good enough.

And that is a lie.

So, the next time you’re in a similar situation, I want you to pay VERY close attention to the voices in your head.

As soon as they start to tell you you’re not good enough, smart enough, successful enough, confident enough, etc… I want you to say “NEXT”, and immediately start thinking of all the things you LOVE about yourself.

And then walk right up to the person, extend your hand with a smile and introduce yourself.

Here’s the kicker… it’s not going to feel comfortable. It might even feel like the scariest thing you’ve ever done.

DO IT ANYWAY.

You need to be disciplined with this…do NOT let your emotions take control of your actions.

The more you step through this fear, the more confidence you’ll gain.

And on Tuesday, I’m hosting a fantastic free training on how to SILENCE the mental chatter going on in your mind…you might want to think about joining me.  CLICK HERE for the details.

The Power of Pause

The Power of Pause

Nothing in nature plays small

An oak tree, in the right conditions, will grow to be the biggest, best oak tree it can be.

A rose, in the right conditions, will grow to be the most beautiful rose it can be.

Yet, people
constantly
play small.

We are the only species on the entire planet that gets in the way of our own purpose.

Why is that?

I think that Tim Grover, in his book, Relentless, put it best when he said, “We’re born bad, and we’re taught to be good.” I think that it is right on, and the next 4 articles will unpack exactly what this means.

For starters, we all come into this world with this relentless urge to grow, to succeed, and be everything we were put here to be. Grover calls that “being born bad”.

Then, we learn to relent to the rules, beliefs and values of our family. Grover calls this “learning to be good.”

In that mindset, we’re taught only to be safe, to be secure, to fit into the community. The problem is, this is not what we were born to do and it is not within our nature.

Naturally, we have all these desires to fulfill, to play big instead of small, and be the best we can be. I don’t mean that in relation to anybody else—your focus should not be comparison. What matters is that you do the best you can to achieve your own unique purpose.

How do you move forward? Luckily, the universe is designed in such a way that you will naturally grow to fulfill your purpose, if you allow yourself. So, the first step is to uncover exactly what it is that’s holding you back, which I cover in my next two articles.

Until then, really think about all the instances in which you do something because of the fear of how someone else will react.

Before you make ANY decisions, pause and ask yourself, “Is this something I really want to be, do or have?”  If it’s not, SAY NO!

Until next week…

Don’t drag them around

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Are there certain types of people that just wouldn't make good coaching clients? And if so, how do you spot them?

Thanks, David! xoxo

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for your GREAT question!

You know, I’ve been saying for years that people have the right to be as happy as they want to be or as miserable as they want to be.

A rule that I live by is if you have to drag someone into a program, you’ll have to drag them around. That’s not enjoyable for either party.

All this being said, there are some red flags to alert you that a prospect may not be a good fit for coaching.

1) Have they demonstrated a willingness to change? (You want a yes here.) In your conversation you should be able to identify their sense of urgency or their reason for wanting to change, and you should be looking for things they have already started doing to begin to change.

2) Do they take responsibility for their life and circumstances? (You want a yes here.) Generally, someone who does not take responsibility for everything in their life is not coachable, and if you take them on as a client, you’ll be the next person blamed for their situation.

Always remember, that you’re looking for people who WANT to change…not for people who find significance in drama and despair.

I Struggle to Post

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Amanda.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I own a brick and mortar business (a bakery), and I know I need to increase my online presence. I’ve been told by many marketers that I need to post about my store, my clients, and my product, but I REALLY struggle with it…actually I think I just plain resist doing it.

Every time I have an idea to post something public, this voice in my head tells me I’m bragging and everyone will think I’m full of myself. WTF?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Amanda!

I have a VERY important question to ask you…and I REALLY want you to think about it.

Whose voice is telling you that you’re bragging and people will think you’re full of yourself?

And here’s the thing… it’s NOT your voice…and it’s NOT Spirit’s voice… so then, whose voice is it?

Here’s the thing… someone is renting space in your brain, and they are NOT supporting your goals and dreams.

Because the truth is, God does not speak to you through a spirit of fear, but through love, courage and a sound mind.

What does this mean?

It means that you are allowing someone else to control the growth of your business and keep you small.

It means you’re allowing someone else to steal your purpose, passion and confidence.

And

It means that until you get them out of your head, visibility is going to cause quite the tug of war in your mind.

Do this…

First, the next time you hear that voice, I want you to think “NEXT!” and visualize yourself turning your back on that voice. Then complete the post.

Second, CLICK HERE and let me help you come out of hiding and stand confidently in who you are and the product you provide. It sounds like it’s TIME!

How do I Create Credibility for Myself?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

How do I create credibility for myself and be seen as an expert?

Thank You!

Neagle Code Answer

Thank you for your question. Many people get stuck right here, thinking they have to build credibility, secure testimonials and build a website before they can ever begin.

So, here’s the real question — are the people who need you finding you? And when they do, do they see you as an expert or just a friendly peer?

By posturing and positioning your actions, thinking, and energy all to match your expertise, people will see you in that way and want to buy your services.

How do you position yourself as an expert and get your message out?

Speaking

Sponsoring

• Leveraging other experts

– Guest interviews on Podcasts

– Media placements

– Guest Interviews on Virtual Summits

• Creating amazing content and giving it away through:

Video

– Social Media Platforms

– Media placements

But here’s another important question…

Are you confident
in your ability to deliver?

You don’t need to tell prospects how much you know or about your raving testimonials or how wonderful your product or service is.

Your confidence in your ability to help them gets transferred TO them, and then they know you can help them.

It’s an example of The Impression of Increase in action.

You don’t sell people… people sell themselves when they realize what they need to do to solve their problem; which ultimately results in them purchasing your expertise to help solve it!

If you feel like you’re on shaky ground and your confidence is spotty, I suggest you join me for a FREE training I’ll be hosting this Tuesday at 1pm ET titled, 3 Secrets to Unshakable Confidence.

I can’t ask for money

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

I've lived the Law of Attraction for years now and all but one part of my life “clicks.” My bills are paid. My new desires are met. I love what I do and find that incoming jobs come to me at the perfect time. I'm so happy I could bust, except for this one thing.

I find it gut-wrenching to charge for my work. When I invoice, I rarely charge what the work was worth. I am excellent at what I do, as my clients will attest. I have good self-esteem. I just prefer to do what I love and let the Universe provide.

I'd like to step up my income and move to the next level, which will mean charging what my quality of work is worth. Can you help?

Neagle Code Answer

I love this question…

I need to tell you something, and I’m typing it with nothing but love.

You don’t have a good self-esteem.

If you did, you wouldn’t be afraid of the rejection you would have to deal with when you begin to charge what you’re worth.

Above you said that you’re excellent at what you do, and that your clients will attest to it. So tell me, if this is the case, why would you find it gut-wrenching to charge for your work?

You prefer to do what you love and let the Universe provide because you are afraid of what will need to happen for you to grow. You would need to stand in your power, be confident and not be afraid of hearing the word, “no”.

And let me tell you something, the Universe doesn’t “provide” anything. You create it. And right now you are creating just enough to get by.

You see Spirit doesn’t speak to you through fear, therefore, it’s not Spirit that’s making it gut-wrenching to charge for your services.

It’s your ego.

Your ego knows that you are afraid of rejection and judgment from others, and so it uses that belief to stop you from growing.

Charging what you’re worth means that you would need to grow into being that person, and that’s something your ego DOES NOT want you to do because it views any kind of growth as a risk.

So, what are the services you offer worth?

Pick a number.

Can you see yourself feeling good about asking for that price for what you offer?

Write it down and practice saying it out loud. Make it feel real to you.

THEN

In your next sales conversation ask for that price.

It’s the only way to push through that gut-wrenching fear.

Should I have a business card?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I know this may sound like a strange question, but how important do you think business cards and websites are? I’m trying to decide if should pour a significant amount of money into those things or if they are really just not necessary. I’d appreciate your opinion before making that decision.

Thank you for your time!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for your question!

You know, I NEVER carry business cards and I tell all my students to do the same.

When networking, if someone asks for your card, tell them that you don’t carry cards, but you’d be happy to take one of theirs and follow up with them. Take their card and write notes on the back so you can remember the conversation you had.

That way YOU are in control of the follow up.

Several years ago my website was down for almost a full year, and my company GREW!

Actually it was the best year I had ever had.

Most marketers will tell you that you MUST have a website. I disagree.

NOTHING can take the place of a personalized person-to-person approach to sales.

In fact, in this market, it’s been the single most IMPORTANT thing my company has done.

Don’t get me wrong, a website has a purpose, but if your most pressing need is sales and income, a website is not going to get you closer to that goal. Your ability to reach out to someone, have an effective conversation, and close a sale WILL.

My advice would be to prioritize.

First, bring in the sales through one on one conversations, and when you have the capital, build a website that focuses on collecting opt-ins to build your marketing list.

Calendar and Cash Flow

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

How do you find the time to do everything that needs to be done to actually make more money?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for the fantastic question!

I learned a long time ago that we can’t manage time…we must manage activities.

You see work will always fill the time you allot for it. This is why one of the first things I teach my VIP Clients is the fine art of calendaring.

Let me explain… as entrepreneurs, there are so many things that can bombard us on a daily basis. Whether it’s making sales calls, handling client satisfaction, fulfilling orders or programs, marketing planning or dealing with our personal lives, there is ALWAYS something to fill our time.

One of the key strategies to ensuring money-making activities get done is to schedule those activities every day, and

STICK TO
YOUR SCHEDULE.

Start with calendaring the “non-negotiable” items first. These items can be up-coming travel, presentations, and other activities that are firm.

Next schedule all your money-making activities. These should include sales calls, strategy and launches.

From there, schedule everything else.

In doing this you may even come to see that you actually have more time than you need or you may see opportunities to hire people to help you with the things you do not specifically need to be doing.

Once you have your schedule in place, you must discipline yourself to stick to it!

Sometimes this is the most difficult step, and if you find yourself straying from your calendar, take a moment to re-align yourself and course correct.
