Desire and Purpose – The Same or Different?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I have two questions. First, are desire and purpose different or the same? Second, can you explain how our secret thoughts lead us toward our passion, our purpose?

Neagle Code Answer

So, to answer your first question:

Your desire and your purpose are different.

Your purpose is never ending. It's always expanding.

It is the track that you're on for your life, what you're going to be, do, and have, as a person. It's the reason that you're here.

Your desire is the inner compass that will keep you in your purpose all your life. It's your inner guidance system for you to follow and learn to follow that will keep you in your purpose.

To answer your 2nd question:

Yes, our secret thoughts do lead us toward our passion and our purpose.

But why are they secret thoughts, and why should we express them?

Most people learn at some point not to verbalize the things that they really want, especially if they were criticized or made wrong in their life. They don't express them anymore.

They think about them in their secret thoughts, the thoughts that they don't tell anybody about.

Very often, we've either been doing that for so long, or we don't recognize that we're doing it.

We don't realize that those secret thoughts are extremely important in telling us what it is that we really desire in life, and we need to find a way to give expression to them.

The only reason that we're not expressing our secret thoughts, is that we have shame or guilt wrapped up in them, somebody told us they were wrong, or society doesn't agree with them.

There's some reason you're not expressing it, but it's the actual thing that you should be expressing that will lead you into all the things that you want to do in your life.

Stop Feeling Overwhelmed. Start Acting

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,

Are there any tools that I can use to really see what that next step is, that next action? I just feel like I'm always pushing to an unrealistic point, even though I feel like I can do it, but then it ends up being this overwhelming thing.

Neagle Code Answer

The desire needs to be there, because if it's there, that will be the thing that causes you to overcome whatever resistance there is around the action.

If the desire is not there, then the fear will always be stronger than whatever it is that we're saying the desire is.

There are three important questions you must ask:

1) What do you really want?

And be 100% completely honest with yourself about this answer.

2) Are you currently doing whatever it is to achieve what you want?

This needs to be specific and it needs to have direction.

The achievement needs to be something that's measurable, so that you can determine not only what track to be on, but in what direction on that track you’re going.

3) What needs to happen every day in order to achieve whatever it is that you’re looking to achieve?

And this should be more than one thing.

You have to get clear on what these actions are, because they give you direction every day and tell you what you need to work on.

It could be identifying all the problems that are out there, how you overcome those problems, and how you know that you've overcome those problems.

People think success is a destination. It's never a destination.

Never, ever, ever. It is a journey. And it is a process.

Successful people live in the process, not in the destination. They love the process.

Fear Stopping You From Action?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I have a clear vision of what I want. I feel like I'm pretty clear on what my purpose is, but I struggle with some of those actions that I know I need to take in order to move my business forward (like in sales, making cold calls and networking). How do I overcome my struggle with following through with action?

Neagle Code Answer

The desire needs to be there, because if it's there, that will be the thing that causes you to overcome whatever resistance there is around the action. If the desire is not there, then the fear will always be stronger than whatever it is that we're saying the desire is.

What do you really want? What is your desire?

You have to ask yourself, are your ideas rooted in you being the best? Or are they rooted in everybody just doing okay, like being safe, being secure and motoring along at that pace?

If you really wanted to be your best you would be thinking, “How do I crush sales? How do I crush it? How do I master this damn thing so I'm the best.” You wouldn't say I'm struggling with it.

So, when I hear somebody use that language, I'm asking myself what is the real motive for what they're saying that they want. And usually a person's not clear on it.

They're not; they may think they're working to be the best, but they're actually working for some different level of safety or certainty in their life.

Because you have to understand something, the fact that you're struggling represents in your mind somehow that there's some uncertainty with that specific task, or that action or how you do it, otherwise you wouldn't be struggling.

If you want to be your best, nobody should be able to expect more from you than you.

Your demand on you should be so much higher.

It should supersede anything anybody else could expect from you, that you don't even care what other people think because your measure of your best is an internal measure.

You need to change what is determining your success and your best because you are doing it in a way where it's being reflected to you by the way others behave or treat you or expect something from you.

It needs to be an internal compass. If you change that one thing, if you just pivot that and really get solid on, you're the best judge of your success and what you're doing, I think these problems will go away.

It's really a practice in becoming very aware of what your own hidden motives in life are. And then getting them the hell out of there and doubling down on what you really, really, really want for yourself and not letting anybody else's opinion, acceptance, or rejection of you matter at all. The only thing that matters is what you think, and you set the bar for what is success in your life. Period.

I Derail Myself

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

Neagle Code Question

I'm clear enough on my desires (to not be overweight and poor), but I'll start taking action, and as soon as I notice results starting to come into my life, I allow myself to get badly derailed. It's almost like paralysis sets in and I stop. Have you seen this before, and how the hell do I beat this?

Neagle Code Answer

Yeah, I have.

Every person has to overcome the part of their subconscious mind that wants them to stay the same.

The moment you start to do something different, especially if you're producing different results, it’s going to send a trigger up to your subconscious mind. And it will engage whatever story it has in order to keep you safe.

In what way do these new results threaten something either imaginary or real in your life?

The idea is that you need to integrate the new you with your new behavior.

You need to build a vision of yourself making the amount of money that you want to make and being in your ideal body.

You need to hold on to that vision, and get excited about that vision every day until your mind begins to accept the new you.

Now when you create this new image or the suggestion of a new image, which is you being healthy and wealthy, it's totally contradicting the image that your subconscious mind knows of you that it believes keeps you safe.

As you're taking the new action and getting the new result you have to build a new image in your mind of exactly how you want to be.

And then you need to incorporate that into everything that you do in your day-to-day in your life.

SEE YOURSELF AS HAPPY, HEALTHY, WEALTHY enjoying yourself as the new person you want to become.

Is My Desire Lame?

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

Neagle Code Question

Is that accurate:  If you have the desire and you keep that desire pure and undiluted, then you will have the drive to do the hard things that need to be done to accomplish your desire.   Perhaps my question is how do we develop that desire, and how can we be sure it is strong enough to keep us motivated?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question!!

And you are correct…

If your desire is average, which is a problem most people have, you won’t break through and do the “hard things” needed to accomplish your goal.

Why is this? Why do so many people have an average desire?

It’s because they won’t be honest about what they REALLY TRULY desire.

It’s not that it’s not there. It’s not hidden.

You need to be honest with yourself and understand that you’re not afraid of your desire, you’re afraid of what it’s going to cost you. 

To really understand and see the reason why you’re here can be terrifying because what do you do when you realize that you may have to change very significant things in your life?

How do you rearrange your life to be able to live your desire?

This is the most serious realization that a person ever comes to in their lifetime and it requires 100% commitment.

Most people have created their life based on how their parents taught them to get on in the world, and usually that is in great conflict with what a person truly desires for them self.

So, get really quiet, and listen to that voice inside that is telling you what you really want, and then fall in love with that…make it your magnificent obsession…and nothing will stop you.

Tired of Trying to Do It All?

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

Neagle Code Question

Over the last 7-8 years, my biggest limiting belief has been that I can’t make great money doing something I love — and if I do, the thing I love will become something I hate because I can’t figure out how to do it all.

I feel like I have conflicts across several things. Can you help me see what’s going on?

Neagle Code Answer

First of all, you can’t do it all.

Nobody can do it all.

The need to “do it all” comes from a middle-class mindset.

That type of thinking will immediately shut down your desire, and make your life miserable.

Here’s the thing…in order to reach your goal, you have to grow past that mindset.

Your need to do it all is in direct conflict with your desire, and it’s showing you where you AND your mindset needs to grow.

If you look at any successful person, you’ll see that they’ve had to adopt a WEALTH MINDSET, and be willing to abandon old beliefs that would have kept them spinning their wheels.

It’s not necessary for you to “do it all.” You can hire people to handle the things you don’t want to do.  

But that requires you to step into the unknown and spend more, learn more, lead more, BE MORE…

You say to yourself:

 “If I’m going to be, do, or have this thing, then I have to grow in this area. If I’m not willing to do that, then that will become the place where I stop.”

You can’t think about what you don’t want and move forward at the same time.

You have to focus entirely on what you DO want. And give it your all.

If you feel like you’re being controlled by a middle-class mindset and want to eliminate that value conflict, join me THIS WEEK on June 2nd and 4th for a FREE 2-Part video training I’ll be delivering. I’ll be sharing The Hidden Secrets Inside a Wealth Mindset and helping you see how to change your thinking to be able to fulfill your desire…without all the struggle. CLICK HERE to register.

How to Change Your Thoughts

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’ve heard you teach that the image you hold in your mind, is the result you will receive. How do you change the images in your mind in order to get the results you want?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question, and one that I hear often.  

The simple answer is:

You have to build a new image of what you want, and then take action every day until it is achieved.

You can’t simply meditate or visualize what you want.  

You have to realize you aren’t just creating a new image, you are replacing an old one.

When you start to apply the action to the new image and you start to see results, that is when you know you are programming your mind all the way through.  

It’s image, emotion, action and result.  

You can’t just do one or some of these, each component is required in order to make a change. 

When you take action and get a new result, you know you have truly let go of the old belief and created the new one.  

Without the action, part of your mind just knows it isn’t real and will keep reinforcing the old programming.

Every day write down:

  • Your purpose. 
  • Your goal.

And then ask yourself, “Who do I need to be today to create this right now?”

It takes real commitment to say:

“I am abandoning the person I was, and I am going to recreate a new me.”  

You have to take it seriously and not waiver. The second you start to waiver, you instantly go back to the old behavior.

A Rough Few Days

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 been having a rough few days. I feel like everything in our firm is broken. My employees aren’t doing a good job. Our technology isn’t working. We’re not collecting money. I’m finding fault in everything, and it’s discouraging to me. I can’t even think of one positive thing to try and break out of this.

It really hit home when you were teaching on the need to focus on the vision and not the problems. I made a list of broken things that I need to fix. But maybe I’m phrasing it the wrong way. Can you help me?

Neagle Code Answer

Here’s the thing. With everything that’s going on right now with COVID-19, it leaves the mind open to suggestion.

Our mind is constantly on alert for finding things that are wrong.

If we start looking at one thing that’s wrong…we get consumed by that idea. We go into the “creative energy” of making other things wrong.

That’s where we start having all these other problems.

Very rarely does it look like we’re creating this ourselves.

It’s like, “Well, now all my employees are having a problem, and my vendors are having a problem. Nobody’s collecting any money.” It seems like an external issue.

We then start expanding on that…by focusing on it more. That’s the “creative energy” we’re putting out into the universe around the thing we’re afraid of.

The idea is that you have to stop it. Forget about the problems.

Focus on: Where am I going? What is the result I want? What is the outcome I’m going to focus on?

And you start moving in that direction.

Even in my company, we’ve had to change many things over the last two months. Some things broke down. There were miscommunications within our team. There was a lot of pivoting, a lot of doing things last minute. A lot of things got overlooked.

I think as a business owner, you’re always faced with this choice of, “Do I look at this as something negative — or do I look at this as something positive?”

What’s worked for me is focusing on being super grateful for all those things that broke down…because they tell you where you need to grow and what you need to fix, so that you can have the business you want in 6 months, 12 months, or a year.

Don’t focus on the problems or beat yourself up for them. That actually keeps you in the problem.

If you find a problem, or someone on your team brings you a problem, it’s an opportunity to say, “Fantastic. Now we know what needs to be fixed. Now we have a crack to fill. That will help us as we move forward.”

Try to stay focused on how each “problem” will help you, how this will be one less issue you’ll have to solve in 6 months or in 12 months.

Focus on gratitude and where you’re going in growth.

A Blind Spot Around 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

David, I believe I have a blind spot around money. I can list off lots of reasons why I think this, but the primary reason is that I have been stuck at a financial ceiling in my business for over 3 years now…and I often catch myself making decisions based in money fears. How can I uncover what this blind spot is? Is it just simply a belief?

Thanks!

Neagle Code Answer

So here's what I want you to consider first off.

Your problem… your blind spot is probably a generational problem.

I want you to think about something. Somewhere back in your history, in your family lineage, problems started, and those problems literally became belief systems.

Now, I want you to think… if your great-great-great grandparents had experienced some misfortune in their life, and they didn't understand it, and couldn't see a way out of it, what would invariably happen is they would create a belief system around that problem.

That problem, all the circumstances around that problem, all the people around that problem, all the conclusions of that problem would become a belief for them.

It then gets passed down to the next generation that comes along until it finally hits you and your generation, and you have no choice but to accept it as being true.

(Remember, prior to the age of 7 you didn’t have the ability to reject beliefs.)

You’re now in a place where you’re asking a different question. You’re ready to take this downward progression of a blind spot that has probably been going on for generations in your family lineage, and actually turn it around for a big win in your life.

Blind spots are usually masked in resistance… so get really quiet and ask yourself the following question:

What am I resisting Doing, Being or Having?

Examine ALL areas of your life, because how you do anything is how you do everything.

When you uncover the resistance, immediately take action.

And if you need some one-on-one help seeing what you can’t see, CLICK THIS LINK and see how I’m working with entrepreneurs to move them through their blind spots into results-based action… Because sometimes you just can’t see what you’re resisting without help.

And congrats to you for being willing to question the deep beliefs that are causing your problem!

Not Sure What to Believe

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

Neagle Code Question

My biggest issue right now is that I’m not sure what to believe. I’m a small business owner, and I feel so confused about what to do. On one hand I have people telling me to act as if it’s business as usual, and on the other hand I have people telling me about how they are losing business and may have to file for bankruptcy, so I should be conserving and planning for the worst.

WHAT IS GOING ON? I feel like I can’t get my feet solidly underneath me. Can you help?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Amanda!

Please know that you’re not alone in what you are experiencing. I’ve spoken to so many business owners over the last few weeks who have asked me the exact same question.

So, let’s clear the confusion.

First: Get focused on what YOU want. NOT what you think you can do…but the deep desire you feel in your heart for what you want to experience or create in this world.

This feeling has to be strong, because the power of your desire will push you through any fear or resistance that you may experience as you progress toward the goal.

Second: Make a decision. Decide on your goal and make sure it is in line with your desire. For example, if it’s your desire to expand your business, a goal may be to increase the number of clients by 25% in the next 30 days.

Third: Make a list of new behaviors (This is where it may get uncomfortable). For example: If your goal is to increase the number of clients by 25%, then new behaviors may be calling all your pre-existing clients and directly asking for referrals, running paid advertising or creating videos to send to potential clients.

Fourth: TAKE ACTION. Begin to take action and implement the new behaviors.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter what someone else is experiencing…YOU can create your own experience. Tune out everyone else and focus on YOU and what YOU can do right now to create exactly what you want!

If you’re looking for more support around how to control your thinking, see the truth and create a plan of action, join me next week on May 6-8th for my Art of Success Watch Party! Tickets are only $97.00 AND 100% of the proceeds will be used to purchase Face Shields for NYC Hospitals!
