Overwhelmed with marketing?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I get overwhelmed with all the things I can and should do with marketing. How do I know what I should focus on and how do I determine my marketing needs?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for this question.

First, pick a plan or a system and work on mastering it.

Choose a marketing system or skill and stick with and master it. Test it. Follow through.

Second, the more you do it and stick to one plan, you will learn there’s a specific rhythm to marketing that you’ll start to embody.

If you're wrong, you can switch when you find out you're wrong, but you've got to stick to something and learn to build upon that.

Let the results tell you.

The results should tell you if you're on track or not. Don’t get emotional about marketing. It’s very results driven.

See what the results are and that's how you make decisions.

How to teach children to express emotions

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 we model what we're learning and teach children to express emotions … even when we feel like we don’t have time to deal with their “big feelings”?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for this question.

First, help your children understand what they're experiencing.

Remember, it's a whole new world for them. They don't know why they're experiencing what they're experiencing. 

The best thing to do is for you to withdraw your big feelings in the moment and get yourself centered before you address them.

Help them understand what they're experiencing and show them an alternate way of expressing their emotions.

When you say, “Don't do that,” or “Put your feelings away,” they don't know how to do that.

Managing emotions is a skill that takes a better part of 30 years for most people to figure out and that’s IF they're diligent with it.

You need to withdraw yourself first. Calm yourself down and then say, “How do I need to address somebody that's five?”

One of the best things that you can do is research and learn how to influence your children, so they WANT to do something and feel as if it’s their choice.

Don’t let fear tell you that you aren’t enough.

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’m always worried that I’m not doing enough, learning enough, or taking enough action. How do I stop these self-sabotaging thoughts?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question.

This sounds like a voice of “I'm not enough” that's creeping up for you.

You need to just ignore that voice, and repeat (out loud and over and over):

“I'm enough. I'm enough”.

Then the first step in setting a goal is to determine what needs to be done to achieve the goal.

There are things that we know we need to do… and then there are things that we don't know that we need to do.  As we move toward the goal, we’ll get clearer on EVERYTHING that needs to be done.

It might be required that we learn a new skill or improve upon a strategy we’ve tried in the past.

But the key is to let the goal drive your decision-making process, not the voice in your mind.

If the goal requires you to do more, than do more.

If the goal requires you to learn more, than learn more.

Do only what needs to be done today the best that you possibly can.

Stay present and let the goal dictate your activity.

Why am I so anxious?

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 never considered myself an anxious person, but recently I’ve been battling with a feeling of doom…kind of like waiting for the “other shoe to drop” rather than feeling hopeful and optimistic. I know I need to flip this switch or I’ll start attracting things I don’t want. Any suggestions here?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question.

What you are feeling is unfortunately becoming more and more commonplace… because we are being bombarded by more negativity and fear than we ever have in the past.

Let me explain how this works…

Watch how you respond when you see negative stuff on the news.

How emotionally charged do you get?

The second you realize you're emotionally charged, the negativity has already bypassed your ability to reject it.

It's gone into the reptilian part of your brain, and those media sources now control you.

The media’s agenda is to get your attention and KEEP it so advertisers will pay for that space. They can't get eyeballs if they're not trying to shock you into watching all the time. So you become numbed out and programmed to this response, and it's keeping you in a fear state.

When you’re in a fear state, your brain is constantly in a reactive mode, which means it's heightening the fear frequency.

This causes you to feel uncertain, like you're not enough, or that you're not safe.

So you feel like you're in less control.

When you feel like you're in less control,

you'll look out into your world and you'll see less opportunity.

I've watched so many people lose everything since COVID started, because they don't think that they have options. They're so focused on the negative, it's controlled their mind. Their frequency to receive has been replaced with fear. All they can focus on is what's wrong, and they don't realize it's their outside world that's controlling what their inside world sees.

We have to control this and get it the hell out of our line of sight. This will start raising our frequency, so that we can receive what we want.

My suggestion is to really sit down and do a thorough examination of what you're focused on.

Tune out anything that brings in fear and negativity and ONLY focus on possibility and what you WANT to create.

How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind to Get What You Want

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

How can I speak in terms of what I want in a way that my subconscious mind won’t reject what I’m talking about?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question.

There is no way to stop your subconscious mind from rejecting what you're saying until you reestablish a full, thorough pattern of thought, emotion, physical action, and result.

The first thing is to make a decision based on the understanding that that voice is not going to shut off right away.

The idea is that:

  1. You don't judge the voice, and
  2. You just let it be there.

Let it be and move forward.

That negative voice that tries to reject what you want is going to be there for some time.

Your job is to make the decision that you’re not going to listen to it.

Instead make the decision that you will not be denied your success and ONLY speak what you desire in life.

That's your choice. Your choice is to speak only what you desire in life.

For example: say to yourself, “The sales are coming in every day.”

AND…

When those rejecting voices get loud, get up and stomp your feet, and clap your hands, and scream at the top of your lungs, “The sales are here now, the people are here now”.

It is important to use your emotion to work on changing the vibration, and then immediately get on the phone and start making calls.

If you consistently make sales, you do the last little piece that helps change that voice in your subconscious because it can't argue with a different result.

Consistently follow these tips to reestablish your pattern of thought, emotion, physical action, and result, and soon, you rewire your brain …and that's when the rejecting voice will stop!

How to overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

How can I overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question.

What you give your energy to, will grow.

So, if you're focused on what you don't want or what you don't want to happen, like the procrastination, clutter and disorganization, you will notice that you will create more of the same.

The way to handle and overcome this is by first becoming aware that your thinking is causing the problem.

Procrastination, disorder, and clutter are actually caused by incorrect thinking.

Second, it's more than just making a decision to get things done, because the disorder that you experience in your physical world is a result of the disorder that's going on in the way that you think.

In other words, you have to retrain yourself to think in an orderly way, which will then bring you a sense of calm because you're not worried about constantly being disorderly.

Understand that everything happens by cause and effect, but if you’re willing to step into being the cause, the effect will take care of itself.

It takes time. You have to really work on yourself to be able overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter, but it can be done!

Your Quantum Leap: How To Know When It’s Happening

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

If you want something really bad and right away, is that a sign that you’re on the verge of a quantum leap?

Neagle Code Answer

Good question. Really good question.

When you want something right away, when you want to make a quantum leap, you have to ask yourself the question:

Do I want to do it right away because I'm in fear of something?

Is there any fear behind the wanting of a quantum leap?

If there is, you need to change that.

The desire to make a quantum leap should only come from a positive place.

Almost everybody that really, really wants a quantum leap is coming from some kind of fear.

A quantum leap happens when we become aware of something that we weren't aware of, and that awareness allows us to make a really markable gain in what we're doing.

For example, when I went from $20,000 to $62,000 in a month, that was a quantum leap.

It did not follow any of the rules in my mind for how that was supposed to happen.

I saw an opportunity that I hadn’t seen before, and I took advantage of it. Meaning I took action immediately toward it!

That's really when a quantum leap happens.

Don’t focus on a quantum leap…focus on being consistent

Remember, running a business is about being consistent in what you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward to hit the goals that you set.

Sometimes you will have quantum leaps, sometimes you won't.

Must-Read: Email marketing and sales mindset game changer

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 have a quick question about sales and email marketing. I will send a client an email. I then don’t follow up until two days later because I don't want to bother them too much. Is there something wrong with that?  Am I just trying to play it safe?

Neagle Code Answer

First off, any decisions about sales and marketing should be based on data… not how you feel.

Not doing something because you “don’t want to bother someone too much” is most certainly based in the fear of what others may think of you…

Here’s the truth:

Sales and marketing is all about helping people… it’s about being IN SERVICE.

You can’t look at sales as bothering someone. A sales call or email is an opportunity to help someone, and that's where you need to make the mindset shift.

When you make a sales call or send an email, look to find a way you can help that individual, and shift your thoughts and feelings from “getting” to “giving”.

If you developed the viewpoint that your product or service is there to help other individuals, then…

your job is to sort through those individuals to find the ones that you can help.

If you have the belief that you need to “get” from someone, you will actually repel sales and money.

If you have trouble receiving money, making sales calls (even though you’re in the red), sending marketing emails or directly reaching out to prospects on social media, you have an issue with your money mindset. For one reason or another you’re carrying shame around money, and that shame is detrimental to your ability to make the money you desire.

Here’s what I’d like to do…

I’d like to invite you to join me at Noon ET Monday, when I’ll be hosting a FREE 4-Hour Workshop specifically designed to help you shift your money issues. We’re going to work on 1) How to charge what you’re worth and actually RECEIVE that money 2) How to make decisions that make money rather than repelling it and 3) How to shift your thinking (and energy) from getting to giving.

Marketing 101: Learn how to best influence and attract more clients

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 need to start reaching out to more to clients. What is the best way to do that to influence and attract clients so that they are receptive?

Neagle Code Answer

In order to reach out to and engage with more clients, you first need to find out what they need. 

Find a way to help them and then speak that to them.

You can’t just throw information YOU THINK they'd be interested in on various different platforms.

You need to offer information that is TARGETED to your audience … pieces of marketing that speak to exactly what they need at the moment.

That's what will catch their attention.

That's what you have to find out, and that's where you have to do research. What are your audience’s needs or their pain points?

Every company that's worth their salt is doing tons of research to find out what their client needs and then they enter the conversation that the client is currently having in their own head based on the problems and needs that are experiencing right now.

Then start putting out high value content on the platform that best suits your ideal client or send them information that speaks directly to solving their problem, and you'll naturally attract them.

They will immediately know that you both understand their needs and that you can help them.

Why do I sabotage myself?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’ve been quite successful recently. My business has grown and grossed more money than ever.

However, I feel like whenever I take a big step forward… I end up suffering some major setback.

Why do I self-sabotage after doing really well?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the question!

We all have an internal compass that dictates how much money or success we’re allowed to have. It’s set at a certain level (based on our programming), and once we go past that level…it gets stuck.

It’s called a Cybernetic Mechanism… or in simplere terms, a financial set point.

That’s when you find yourself “taking a step back.”

To break through this, you must first understand what’s actually taking place in your mind.

Let’s say you start making a lot of money — far more than what you were programmed to make.

Your financial set point immediately kicks in.

Once your brain senses that you’re making more money…it runs away from that, because it thinks it’s not safe. (It’s unknown.)

Our mind hits this place where it goes, “You’re OK here. You can back off from whatever you were doing.” And you take your foot off the gas.

It will cause you to “not feel like doing the work today.”

It will cause you to “get depressed.” (Or sick. Or tired.)

It will create some kind of “extenuating circumstance” in your life — anything to knock you off the disciplined routine you have for earning.

Your internal financial “governor” is literally controlling your behavior.

It will bring you right back to wherever your “financial set point” is.

Before you know it, you’ve dropped back down, and it takes all your energy to get it back up. You get exhausted. It drops back even further. We go through this cycle our entire life…without realizing what’s going on.

(That’s why you’ll have one month where you make the most money you’ve ever made before…followed by a $0 month or several low months.)

In these moments, ask yourself, “Why I am choosing to fail?” or “How is serving me to let this pattern be in control of my results?”

Get really quiet and honest with yourself.

And then…

Keep your eye on your goal.

You have to make an agreement with yourself that you’ll keep going — keep doing the actions needed to bring in the money — no matter what shows up to slow you down or stop you.

When you continually take action to move you forward, you’re reprogramming your mind to believe there’s an abundance, and your cybernetic mechanism will lose it’s power.
