Why did my best client let me go?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’m a social media specialist and I recently received an email from a really great client letting me know that she no longer wants to receive my services. She has 4 months left in her commitment with my company, and I have no idea what’s happened as she’s received great ROI from working with me. I’m not sure how to respond to her email. Do you have any suggestions?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Kalisee,

Thanks for the question!

My number one rule of thumb in situations like this is to never respond via email.

I recommend you pick up the phone and reach out to your client.

First, it’s imperative that you find out what’s caused her to request to be released.

Do not make assumptions.

It could be that she’s had a family emergency or it could be that something has triggered her into fear, worry and doubt.

You’ll never know if you don’t call her, and if you don’t know, you can’t help her.

Approach the conversation in a way that let’s her know that you truly care about what she’s experiencing and ask questions that get to the bottom of what’s really going on.

From there you can decide together what is the best course of action.

In my experience, those phone calls are very powerful and usually end up in the client feeling better and sticking with the program with a renewed sense of possibility.

How to apply Universal Law to referral partnerships

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’ve been studying a book you recommended on Universal Law, but my question is about application of those Laws. How do I apply the Laws when developing referral partnerships?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Jack,

Great question!

It’s actually a pretty simple strategy…

GIVE.

When you give you are obeying the Universal Law of Reciprocity.

Do your homework.

Take the time to really understand what your potential partner is currently working on.

Learn what message they are most interested in expanding in the world right now, and approach them with the intention of finding out how you can help.

Then formulate a plan to do so.

One great suggestion may be to send an invitation to your potential partner offering to introduce them to your connections or subscribers via email or interview with an explanation of how their current message would be of great interest and benefit to your subscribers.

4-6 weeks later send a card reiterating how much you appreciated the opportunity to introduce them to your connections or subscribers, and remind them of your offer to help them anytime, if there’s anything further that they need.

So you see it’s quite simple…

Give FIRST and build a relationship that will both last and reciprocate.

Is it better to stand up and fight, or let the issue go?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David…

My question is about letting go. When and how do you know if you need to let go or if you need to stand up for yourself and fight?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Morgan,

The answer to your question of when to let go depends on your attachment to the outcome.

On the surface, it seems standing up for yourself would often be the right course of action. However, there are times when the issue just isn’t that important and it’s better to walk away.

I have a perfect example of this.

Many years ago, I had a partner literally steal 5 million dollars from our business. What he had done was clearly illegal, and also very difficult for me, because I had worked so hard on creating that income and was responsible for paying the taxes on it.

For about a week I was really angry, and I spoke to several attorneys. The advice I got really changed everything for me.

One attorney told me that I could sue him, but likely it would take years and several hundred thousands of dollars, and I may not ever get that money back because it was likely already spent.

In that moment I knew I could either be right or I could be rich.

So I chose to walk away from it. I focused all of my energy on building my business even bigger than before, and using the lessons I learned from that experience, I very quickly surpassed that 5 million dollars.

The way to think about when you need to let go is to look at why you care.

If you have a strong need to be right, you may find yourself fighting about a matter of no consequence.

When faced with the decision to let go or take a stand, ask yourself if making a stand will be for your growth or if it’s coming from a place of fear.

If it’s coming from fear, it is a sure sign you need to let go.

How much trust should I give my team members?

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 that it takes a team to build the business that I want to grow, but I really struggle with trust. How much trust should I put into others? Or is it ALL on me?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for the question.

The concept of trust is interesting, and the more I speak to entrepreneurs, the more I see how their lack of understanding of trust leads to sabotage.

You see, trust MUST be earned.

To trust blindly in others is sheer ignorance.

Let me explain.

When you are building a team, you have to be a leader.

A good leader interviews and screens potential hires carefully and strategically.

A good leader ALWAYS checks references.

After the hire is made, the leader gives the new team member opportunities to earn the leader’s trust until they have proven to be trustworthy.

This is your business, it’s your responsibility, and I see so many entrepreneurs hand over the keys to their business to people who have not demonstrated that they can be trusted.

Do your part to make sure the team members you are bringing into your business are a good fit, and be willing to give them opportunities to showcase their gifts and earn your trust at the same time.

Can fear be used as a guide in your life?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

How do you “be” the person you desire when your whole life has been filled with fear? Where do you get the strength and courage to step out of your paradigm?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Dave, thanks for the question!

The first thing to realize is that everything comes from within you. As children, we are taught to look outward for validation of what the world is like. But the truth is that all experiences come from inside of you.

You get to decide who you want to be and what you want your reality to be. It is not determined by anyone else but you, especially now that you are an adult and no longer dependent on anyone for survival.

But, your reality won’t change until you start making new decisions.

In my line of work I deal with the ideas of fear and courage everyday. They are, after all, inherently linked. However what I’ve come to realize from years of working in this arena is that people have an innate misunderstanding about courage and fear. Most people think courageous people aren’t scared, that they don’t feel fearful.

That couldn’t be further from the truth.

The thing is, you can use fear as a signpost of what TO DO in life. You can use fear to catalyze new possibilities in your life, and it’s why I’m hosting my next FREE training on this exact topic! CLICK HERE  if you’d like to join me this Tuesday afternoon at 1pm ET.

Once you believe more in the Truth than you do your own story, change will be automatic.

The wealthy mindset embraces fear. Here’s why

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

Neagle Code Question

If fear, worry and doubt are programmed in our minds, it seems inevitable that they will surface at some point after I make a decision. How do I suppress or eliminate them?

Neagle Code Answer

You are absolutely correct that fear, worry and doubt may surface, especially once you’ve made a decision to do something new or even if you are in the decision-making process.

Fear, doubt and worry show up in different ways for each person, depending on their programming.

The problem is that we’ve been taught that fear is a bad thing…something to avoid or eliminate. In fact, the Middle Class Mindset is focused on completely avoiding fear altogether.

But the truth is successful people know how to use fear, worry and doubt to create what they want.

The Wealth Mindset actually embraces fear as an indicator, and seeks to understand the hidden messages in worry and doubt.

Most people spend their lives running from fear, but successful people have a completely different understanding, and I believe it’s so important that I’m going to be hosting a FREE virtual training titled:

The Crossroads of Success: Two Critical Decisions You Must Make to Transform Fear and Anxiety. It’s coming up on June 13th at 1:00 pm ET. In this training I’m going to explain how you can actually welcome fear, doubt and worry and use them as a catalyst for your own success. I’ll show you how to take your power back and stop letting fear control you.

If you’d like to join me, CLICK HERE and get all the details.

Because you see Brett, trying to suppress or eliminate fear actually keeps you in the problem.

Do I need to spend my way to success?

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

Neagle Code Question

David I've heard you teach recently that you need to spend your way to success. Can you explain a little more about what that means?

Thanks so much for your time and message!

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the question, Marta!

What I mean when I say you have to spend your way to success is you have to be willing to invest in your own growth and desires.

If you’re not willing to invest in yourself and your business, you will hit a financial wall and not be able to break through. For you and your business to grow you have to up-level.

First, you must believe that you can earn a certain amount of money. Then make financial commitments that will give you enough pressure to get to work.

Keep in mind that you want to commit to the next level, but not so much that you fold under the pressure.

When you’re too comfortable with where you are, it doesn’t create enough urgency to change, and you won’t do what you have to do to earn the money you want.

It is easier to stay in your comfort zone than to go beyond it; therefore if you don’t create the urgency that forces you out of it, you will get just to the edge of your comfort zone, but not far enough to really create change.

So raise your standard of living and buy that new car or that new thing you want, expand your team or invest in trainings and coaching.

But remember, you also have to raise your standard in your work to bring in the money to pay for it.

Keep doing this and your income will continually increase month after month. If you commit to setting aside 10% of your gross income each month, not only will your income increase, so will your wealth savings account!

What is your life’s purpose? 3 questions to help you find it

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

Neagle Code Question

I understand about purpose, do what you love and the money will follow, but I don't have a clue what I should be doing. How do I find my purpose?

Neagle Code Answer

Miranda,

Thank you for your great question.

Finding your purpose comes from knowing who you truly are and what you desire. Your purpose is already within you and it isn’t something you look for outside yourself.

I’m sure you’ve heard my story about my boating accident where I almost died after being sucked into a dam. When I was hanging onto a tree branch for dear life, I made a promise to God that I would figure out why I hadn’t been able to do the things that I knew I should have been doing. And then do them.

Right after the accident, nothing happened. God didn’t tell me what to do. After much frustration, I realized God wasn’t going to tell me what to do. I had to make that decision myself. I started by asking myself, “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?”

At first I didn’t know the answer. I kept asking myself the question and then answers began to come forward. The first three answers I received and acted upon were to:

1. Change my attitude

2. Treat everyone with total respect

3. Do everything to the best of my ability

Now, this didn’t immediately give me the answer to my life purpose. It did help me to change and to raise my awareness. Whenever we raise our awareness, we discover more of who we truly are. The more we know who we truly are, the more answers we’re given about our unique gifts we have to share with the world.

The key here, Miranda, is to continue to ask yourself conscious questions to raise your awareness of who you are. Everyday, ask yourself, “What am I going to do with the rest of my life?” and “What do I really want?”

Just as I did and continue to do, follow the answers you are given as if they were bread crumbs creating a path and you will find yourself living your “purpose.”

Do I have to sacrifice peace to have a successful business?

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 building a business doesn’t need to be hard, but with all the chaos around me, the sales objections, and difficulties in hiring a team, it sure DOES feel hard. David, please help me find peace in this craziness!

Thank you!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for your question.

Here is the truth:

Peace is a choice.

I think it’s very safe to say that every entrepreneur on the edge of an up-level or big growth opportunity has experienced what you described above.

The interesting thing here is that YOU are actually creating the chaos.

Let me be more specific. Your EGO is creating all the chaos, and it’s serving a particular purpose.

All of these events are designed to place fear, worry and doubt in your mind, so that you go back.

But here’s the great thing about the chaos. If you’re creating it, you can stop it.

The amazing thing about being human is that you have the gift of choice. You can choose how you respond to these situations, and it’s in that choice that you have the power to escalate or de-escalate them.

You can choose not be emotionally attached to the chaos around you and even in the midst of stress, you can remain peaceful.

If you’re choosing to make things hard, take a look at your value system. Chances are that value system dictates success must be hard.

Remember, everything just “is”. It’s your reaction and judgment that makes things hard.

Make a decision that it’s easy to grow your business, and then when a negative result shows up, see it for what it really is and don’t get emotionally tied to it.

Instead ask: “What do I need to see about this situation so that I can make a different choice and experience a different result?”

If you can do that, you’ll be well on your way to building a more peaceful business.

How to stop yourself from ruining everything

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 followed you for awhile now and I am blown away. Your teachings allowed me to see an opportunity that was right in front of me for a LONG time. This opportunity has already put an additional $50,000 in my bank account. But now that I have the income I am feeling the pull of my psycho-cybernetic setting and I can feel resistance creeping in. I am so worried and scared that I am going to sabotage this opportunity and all the new income it brings- how can I stop it?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for your question.

First of all, CONGRATS on the extra $50,000.00 in income. That’s fantastic, and something I enjoy watching my private clients discover for themselves as well.

The key thing to remember is that you CAN stop yourself from breaking down and sabotaging yourself. Immediately stop saying that you can’t.

The first step is to become aware of what beliefs are causing the worry.

Ask yourself why you are feeling worried and scared. From that answer, keep asking questions until you feel like you’ve hit the root issue. This will shine the light on the belief that’s allowing fear, worry and doubt to creep in.

Let the worst-case scenario play out.

Once a light is shined on the fear, you can respond to it.

For example, if you discover that your worry is coming from a place of what other people will think of you if you ruin everything, you can now address that fear for what it is.

If you shine the light on it and realize that your fear is coming from a place of wanting love and acceptance from other people, you can bring in the truth to remind yourself that what people think of you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.

This awareness helps neutralize the worry, because you can see it for what it is and understand your next area of growth. In the above instance, it would be strengthening your self-esteem so that you stop fearing judgment from others.
