A Fork in the Road

A Fork in the Road

Nothing happens in the universe by chance.

There’s a purpose for every single thing you experience in your life… whether you’re aware of it or not.

In a very real sense, we’re constantly coming to a “crossroads” with each opportunity we experience.

At any moment, you are faced with a choice: stay where you are… or do something to change your experience.

Each time we’re faced with a decision… we’re also being called to step into “faith.”

We either have faith in moving in the direction we want to go in…

Or we have faith in the fear that’s holding us back.

If we have faith in the fear, then we stay stuck. We stay right where we are.

Think about a decision you’re trying to make in your life. What is that decision?

Whatever it is… faith is coming in at this specific time, for a very specific reason in your life.

You cannot break through the fear that’s stopping you without the power of faith.

Faith allows you to keep moving forward, even though fear is present in your life.

I’m not talking about an ordinary faith… but a faith with deep understanding.

That’s really the key to freedom.

I find that as a person begins to understand the truth behind everything they’re experiencing… their life starts to change in that moment.

As you read this now, you’re at a crossroads in your life. You’ve been given the gift of making a conscious choice.

(A conscious choice happens when you’re aware that you’re choosing… and you’re not just choosing based out of a reaction.)

People are always making choices… but they’re often choosing between two things they don’t want.

They’re not thinking to themselves, “If I could do ANYTHING, have anything, and be anything — then THIS is the direction I would take.”

What choice is in front of you right now?

Are you going to stay the same or are you going to make a choice to step into your purpose?

Choose wisely.

Scattered and Sucked Dry

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! Here’s my question… 

I feel like I’m being pulled in a hundred different directions. I’m a mom, a business owner with employees, a wife, a daughter, a neighbor, a church member, and I’m starting to feel like I’m losing touch with who I am outside of those roles. I wake up and go through the motions, making sure everyone is taken care of, but at the end of the day, I honestly feel sucked dry.

It’s beginning to scare me because it’s getting harder and harder to see where my business needs to go, and I’m actually starting to resent it. I’ve lost the spark I once had. How do I get that back, and still be the best version of myself?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the great questions!

I think a lot of us are really raised with the idea that putting ourselves first is not really a good thing. And while I understand that sometimes putting everyone else before yourself can be a kind or generous thing, the hard truth of the matter is that if we don't put ourselves first in our mind as far as our own health, our own well-being, our own growth, then anything that we actually bring to the table for other people is kind of half-hearted and only at half-capacity.

One of the things that I like to teach people is put yourself first in your own life.

I know some of you might be thinking, “Well, that sounds kind of selfish David.” So let me explain…

When you put yourself first, you actually become the center of your life, not from an egotistical perspective, but from the perspective of:

  1. you have a specific purpose for being here,
  2. it's your responsibility to develop that purpose so that you can not only be a benefit to yourself, but you can be a benefit to other people, and
  3. that you have the ability to take care of your own needs so that you can help other people with their needs.

So let me ask you…

What are you doing that you really DON’T want to be doing?

If you look at all the roles you listed in your question and you make a list under each one of all the things you do, that you actually don’t want to do, how long would that list be?

And the next question for you is:

WHY are you doing these things? What are the excuses you tell yourself to keep yourself from living the life you REALLY want to live?

Are you:

  • Afraid to rock the boat?
  • Worried people will think you’re a bad person?
  • Concerned you’ll be perceived as greedy, selfish or lazy?
  • Controlled by guilt or shame?

The truth is that you’re holding yourself in this place because of a deep inner conflict…and you’re right, it’s sucking you dry.

Here’s how I can help you further with this…on Tuesday at 1pm ET, I’m hosting a FREE training that I’ve titled: How To Live Life on Your Own Terms. Join me, and I’ll share with you a process to help you start to turn this situation around and fall back in love with your life. CLICK HERE for all the details.

The Power of the Dark Side

The Power of the Dark Side

No matter what you believe… the truth is that how you show up in the world today is based on what your experience of life was between the ages of 0-7.

Let me explain…

Most parents do the absolute best job they can raising their children. I think we can all agree on that. But I think we can also all agree that as children there were things that we did or said that our parents reacted strongly to. If we did something to embarrass them, if we were disrespectful, if we showed anger, our parents would react in a way that caused us to stop that natural expression of who we were.

And if you shut down your ability to express yourself to your parents, because you were only allowed to express yourself in ways that they deemed fit, you never got to know who you really are.

Why?

Because you shut off your inner voice.

That inner voice is there for every person.

It is the same as instinct is for the bird, or the squirrel, or the moose, or a tree. It tells you what to do, who to be, where to go, how to show up… but you have to learn to listen to it. And unfortunately, most of us were NEVER taught how to listen to that voice.

Instead we were taught to get our guidance from outside our selves. We were taught to look to our parents, teachers, relatives or others with “authority” over us, and thus began the slow process of losing ourselves.

Look, every one of us has a purpose, but because of the way we were raised, we can’t hear our own inner desires… and even if we DO hear that inner voice, we have excuse after excuse as to why we can’t have that, do that or be that.

It's there for all of us… that purpose, that desire.

We have to start to be aware of is how much information that we've been given that leads us in the opposite direction of that. Because when you're living a life and you're not happy, when you're not making the money that you want, when you're not expressing yourself the way that you want, when you're in a relationships that sucks, what you're really doing is you're listening to somebody else's voice in your head.

You're not listening to yourself.

And you've got so many insecurities, you don't know even how to make a decision to move yourself out of that place and into the place where you want to be.

I’d like to help you with that. I’d like to help you turn this cycle around and tap into your greatest power… the power of being who you REALLY are. I’ve created a quick FREE lesson that you can access by audio or video that explains this process… and gives you steps to finally start to see who you were meant to be rather than the person everyone told you that you had to be. ENJOY!

I totaled my car AND my attitude

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 recently had a car wreck. My vehicle was totaled, and I’ve been in serious pain.

Although I’m better now… I’ve had a crappy attitude because I’m in chronic pain.

How do I get my business jump-started, despite my poor attitude? I can’t afford coaching or things like that, because I had to replace my car. Can you offer any advice?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question. And I’m sorry you’ve had that trouble.

Here’s the thing… you had a setback in your life. We all have setbacks. And yours is starting to affect your thinking.

It can be very difficult and challenging to keep your attitude in a good place when you’re in pain.

I’m no stranger to pain. After I broke my back years ago when I got sucked through a dam, I was in pain for 30 years. (I’m just now figuring out how to get out of that.)

If I were you, I would find something about this setback to be deeply and profoundly grateful for.

This situation is asking you to pay attention to something. You have to figure out what that is, because it will totally change your life.

Moving forward, the mindset you have is your choice. You get to choose that, and nobody can take that away from you.

After you’ve expressed gratitude… ask yourself, “Why am I working? What do I really want to achieve? What do I want my life to be about?”

Really get a bigger vision for yourself. I think that’s important.

If we don’t have a vision for our life, then we don’t have much of anything… because we’re just showing up, being reactive to everything. Then it’s about survival. It’s about getting through one day to the next. (That can be really important when a person is in so much pain.) You’re just trying to get from one day to the next, because that’s what’s getting your attention the most.

Create a vision for your future. Bring that in close and intimate with yourself. Then create a plan to go after it with everything you’ve got.

The Law of Polarity states that everything has an opposite, and it is equal and opposite. The bigger the setback you have in your life, the bigger the opportunity is for you to move forward. That is an absolute law.

Most people don’t know that. Or they don’t take the time to find out what the opportunity is… because the setback causes so much pain and distress in their life. All they can focus on is how miserable they feel in the moment.

The way to break through this is to become grateful. Find anything to be grateful about.

Ask yourself, “What is the biggest gift in this, that can change my future?”

When the answer shows up, pay attention and move on immediately.

More Than Just the Money

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

Neagle Code Question

I’ve been in business for 4 years, making $100K per year. Recently I got sick and had surgery. It took me several months to get back on my feet. (I don’t think I got sick due to over-working or stress, or anything like that.)

I’ve been living off my savings. I feel better now, and am ready to go back into my business. But it feels like there’s a block or resistance. What I used to do isn’t working anymore.

How can I turn this around?

Neagle Code Answer

Thank you for the question!

If your illness wasn’t related to overworking… and if you’re not associating work with your getting sick, then something else is going on.

Here's what you need to do. You need to come up with a new goal for yourself, something that really excites you. Something you really, deeply want.

When a person is not enthusiastic about what they’re doing, all it means is they’ve got the wrong goals set for themselves.

You need a goal that excites you to get out of bed each day and go to work.

Pick a goal. It can be whatever you want. Create a vision board for yourself. Put it in front of you every day, and set different mark points for yourself to reach as you work towards it. Then reward yourself while you’re doing that.

For example, let’s say you give yourself a goal — when you hit $20,000 in income, you’re going to reward yourself with something.

When you hit $40,000, you’re going to reward yourself with something else.

Then when you hit $100K, or whatever number you’re choosing for yourself, you’ll give yourself a big reward.

You can pick whatever numbers or goal points you’d like.

If you pick a financial goal, make sure you associate it with something you really want more than just the money…because there’s nothing worse than working for money alone.

Make sure your goal is something that excites you.

How to Move Past Fear and Procrastination

How to Move Past Fear and Procrastination

HI! David here…

Have you ever felt the devastating power of fear and anxiety in your own life?

(If the word “fear” doesn’t resonate with you, you can replace it with “procrastination” or “complacency.”)

Think about something you want to do. Whatever it is, you’ve probably wanted to do it for a long time.

But fear (or procrastination) stops you…

It keeps you bound to a limited life you don’t deserve.

It keeps you totally stuck… as if you’re paralyzed.
You want to move forward, but you can’t move at all.

The fear (or procrastination) causes you to not take consistent, confident action towards everything that you want to achieve.

Have you ever experienced that?

If so, then you probably have faith in the wrong things. Your faith is being misdirected… like lightning that is not being properly channeled.

Right now, you have more faith in the FEAR (or anxiety or procrastination) than you do in your vision for what you want.

You see… everybody already has some measure of faith.

We all use “faith” every single day. (We couldn’t get through life without it.)

It takes a measure of faith for you to cross the street.

It takes faith for you to write a check or charge a purchase to your credit card (you’re trusting that the money, or the credit will be there).

It takes faith for you to go out on a date with someone, or get married. (You don’t know what will happen. You’re trusting that something good will happen.)

No matter what you do in life — take a new job, start a business, or create something — you’re using a certain measure of faith.

You don’t know how the action will turn out, but on some level you’re trusting that it will work.

That’s faith.

Here’s the problem:

Most of the “faith” we have is based on the “knowledge” we’ve been stockpiling our whole life. That knowledge comes from all the experiences we’ve had up until now.

All of that has created a certain level of faith that you’ve been following on a regular basis.

If you want to get to a place where fear, anxiety, and procrastination no longer control your thinking, actions, and results… then you’ve got to build a new kind of faith, one based on deep understanding of universal truths.

So, tell me, what do you have faith in?

Releasing Resentment

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 work for myself and am an expert in my line of work. I take lots of action…yet I feel SO resentful because I’m not getting the results I want. I have what I call “hunting fatigue.” Things seem to take forever to materialize. I’m really frustrated.

I saw a blog you did about resentment, and that resonated with me.

How can I get over the resentment?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question!

Many people struggle with this, so you’re not alone.

Let me ask you:

What is your resentment really about?

Whenever you have a situation you feel resentful about… it’s waking up a dormant sense of resentment that’s already in you.

It’s not causing the resentment — it’s stirring up a feeling that’s already there.

The key is to figure out what you’re truly resentful about. Those other things in your life are just triggering that feeling within you.

If you want to change this, you have to want to let the resentment go.

In your core, be honest with yourself and ask, “Am I ready to let this go?”

If the answer is yes… then don’t ever say you’re resentful again. Let this be the last time you say that.

Don’t allow the feeling to be in your life at all.

The only emotion you should be feeling is gratitude.

Be grateful for everything that shows up in your life.

I don’t care how bad it is — everything that shows up in your life is moving you towards being more of who you really are.

Gratitude is the only appropriate emotion for whatever shows up.

All of our negative emotions were handed down to us by other people. We “learned” these emotions by observing how other people responded to different problems in life.

Most of us didn’t see people responding to problems with gratitude. We saw them respond with resentment. Or anger. Or entitlement. Or in a sad way.

…So WE learned to respond in those ways, too.

Every problem in your life is there to show you:

  • another side of yourself
  • a better way to move forward
  • something you’re doing wrong, so you can correct it

When you recognize this truth… the appropriate response is to have gratitude for each “problem” that shows up.

Decide: “This is the way I’m going to live from this day forward — with gratitude for everything.”

YOU are the common denominator in all the problems in your life. If you’re exhausted, then you’re putting too much stress onto it.

All of us are going to have to get up, take a shower, eat, and do all kinds of things… every day for the rest of our lives.

We can either resist doing those things, or we can accept them.

If we accept them — and if we’re grateful for the opportunity to be alive in a wonderful world — then we move through the world in a completely different way.

We were given this God-like ability to make choices. We can create our life any way that we want.

Don’t spend another second in resentment. Be grateful for everything, and if you don’t like something, change it.

Without faith there is no vision

Without faith there is no vision

Often when I teach, I refer to writings from different authors and religions that I’ve studied over the years.

Whenever I do that, I always ask that if I’m quoting something that’s not based on your particular religion — or which doesn’t reflect your understanding of God — then I encourage you to replace whatever terminology I’m using with words you’re comfortable with.

For example, if I say the word “God” and you don’t like that term…replace it with “spirit,” “universe,” “energy,” “the divine,” or whatever word you prefer.

The idea is not for us get blocked or hung up over a particular word…because that prevents us from understanding the deep truth of something.

Instead we need to figure out a way to allow ourselves to hear the higher truth of something — even if the words aren’t what we prefer.

It doesn’t matter to me what religion a person practices, or doesn’t practice.

My intention is to teach people to use universal truths in order to make their life exactly how they want it to be, and to help them fulfill their purpose.

Having said that…here’s a quote I want to share from Proverbs 29:18:

”Where there is no vision, the people will perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”

“Vision” means an image you hold in your mind of something you want to create or experience.

“The law” means “universal truths.” (Some people refer to this as “God’s law” or “God’s word.” Again, use whatever terminology you’re comfortable with.)

Without faith (in the laws or universal truths or “God’s word”), you cannot have future visions for yourself.

Without faith, you’ll only have the same vision you’ve previously had (usually a vision that was given to you by someone else)…and which you’ve been following all your life.

When you create a new vision for yourself, you must have faith in it…or it won’t come to fruition.

Faith gives you a vision beyond what you’re currently experiencing.

It lets you believe in something that doesn’t exist yet (i.e, the vision or goal).

In order to go from where you are now…to somewhere that’s absolutely extraordinary…you’ll have to overcome any fear that goes along with that (including any procrastination or complacency).

This requires a different kind of faith — a faith based in deep understanding of universal truths.

Without faith, success is impossible.

How Not to Take “One Step Back”

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

Neagle Code Question

I’ve been quite successful recently. My business has grown and grossed more money than ever. I have higher net profits, and a strong vision for my goals and why I’m doing this.

However, I feel like I take a big step forward…then I take a step back. I end up with a “net” forward, but not as much as I’d like.

Why do I self-sabotage after doing really well?

Thanks!
Anna

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Anna,

Thanks for the question!

You have what’s called a “financial set point.”

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.

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 taking my foot off the gas?”

The way to break through it is to keep going, no matter what.

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 — so that you can have a breakthrough.

The whole idea is that you never stop. You continually break through and take action to move you forward.

By doing this, you’re reprogramming your mind to believe there’s an abundance.

If you do this, then you’ll break through it forever.

More life…even when it doesn’t feel like it…

More life…even when it doesn’t feel like it…

If everything is an uphill battle all the time, what’s something you can do right now to stop making things hard?

When I first started studying the universal laws, I had to learn just like everybody else does. One of the most difficult things to do is to learn to follow Spirit or to follow the universe.

The first thing is to understand that the universe is perfect all the time.

We have a saying in our company: “God is good all the time.” You could also say, “The universe is perfect all the time.” Use whatever language you prefer.

What we mean by this, is that the universe is always for good. It’s always for more life.

That means the exact thing you need is always right in front of you…whether you can actually see it or not.

What I suggest to people is to do the one thing that’s directly in front of you right now.

What is the one thing in front of you that’s pointing you in the direction of where you want to go?

Don’t even think about it. Just do it.

Step in with faith, believing that thing will take you in the direction you want to go.

The universe is never wrong. We’re the only ones that create confusion in our own mind.

The problem is that the universe always sends us the answer, and then we start thinking about it.

“Should I? Shouldn’t I? Do I have the money? Don’t I have the money? Do I have the time? Don’t I have the time? Do I want to commit? Don’t I want to commit?”

The moment we start thinking about it, we start going back into the value system that keeps us stuck, creates the congestion, and keeps everything from NOT flowing.

It’s not the universe that’s doing that. WE are doing that.

Do the one thing that’s right in front of you…and don’t even think about it.

My mentor used to say, “Don’t even look sideways. Just make the decision and move forward in that direction.”

If you keep doing that, your success is assured. It will come. It will show up, and it will show up right on time. No question about it.
