What’s the Process for Getting Unstuck?

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,

What do I need to do to get unstuck? Is stepping into gratitude all that’s required?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question!

To answer this, I’ll quote something from “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles.

In Chapter 7 on Gratitude, in the 13th line, he says:

“The whole process of mental adjustment and atonement can be summed up in one word: gratitude. First, you believe there is one Intelligent Substance, from which all things proceed. Secondly, you believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire. Thirdly, you relate yourself to it through a feeling of deep and profound gratitude.”

That’s it—that’s the process for getting unstuck.

When you’re stuck, it’s usually because you’re not viewing something accurately.

Getting unstuck is about adjusting your mind and shifting your outlook. (He calls this “mental adjustment and atonement.”) Atonement is simply correcting an error such as an error in thinking.

You bring yourself back to the awareness that “one Intelligent Substance” exists (i.e., God or the Universe and everything in it).

You see yourself as being a part of that “Intelligent Substance,” not outside of it. (Nothing can exist outside of God or the universe.)

And finally, you feel a sense of gratitude that everything you want is already here.

Are We All Energetically Connected?

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 intellectually understand the concept of karma, oneness, and universal energetic connection—that we’re all connected. Sometimes I’ll think of someone, and they’ll suddenly call me. Other than that, I don’t fully believe or trust that I’m connected with everyone else. I don’t feel that in my body. I continually doubt that it’s true. Am I supposed to feel it?

Neagle Code Answer

When we’re talking about being connected, I think it’s more of an awareness than a feeling.

We’re all energetically connected. Each of us is part of the same wholeness that we call the “universe,” God, spirit, or whatever you want to call it. None of us are outside of that creation.

This has to do with the law of vibration. There’s no mark of demarcation between one physical object and another.

What we call “space” is actually a place for energy.

Imagine your body as a universe—not the universe, but a universe. Picture all the little cells inside of you, seeing themselves as individual from you. They’re not individual from you. They live inside you. They’re part of you. It’s all part of you. But they’re also a thing outside of you.

You and I are connected right now, not because you’re reading this article, because we’re all connected through energy. You’re connected to everybody that way.

This doesn’t mean you “feel” that, or you feel everybody. It’s more of a conscious understanding. You might be misconstruing the terminology or the study of the law of vibration.

Telepathy is 100% real—where you think of someone and they call you. It can totally happen. There have probably been many times when you thought about a person, but you didn’t act on the thought.

Have you ever asked yourself, “I wonder why that person popped into my mind just now?” Probably because they were thinking of you.

But they wouldn’t know you’re thinking about them if you didn’t take the action on it.

I’ll think of several people of the blue whom I haven’t thought about for a long time—and I know the only reason I’m thinking about them is because they’re probably thinking about me, and I’m picking up on it.

I Taught My Kids Wrong…Now What?

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 raised three children with my middle-class mindset. I taught them to go to school, get a good degree, have a good major, get a job — and all three of them have done that, and aren’t exactly happy.

So now what do I do? How do I go about saying, “Hey, everything I taught to you was pretty much BS. Sorry.” What kinds of conversations can I have with them? I try to throw in some of the things I’ve learned from you.

Neagle Code Answer

That’s funny. I would just talk to them about what they want out of life. Don’t worry about correcting them.

They have to find their own path. This was their path — being raised by you and having you teach them about life was their path.

Now they have to find their own path.

It’s not your job to correct what you told them in the past.

It’s their path to move forward.

It’s the same thing I tell everybody: be an example for your children, because they watch you more than they listen to you. Just talk to them about what they want out of life. Most people don’t do that. Give them that ear.

If you find a way you can help them, like recommending a book or a seminar, go ahead and do that.

And always remember… if they aren’t asking for help… don’t give it!

Why is My Vision Unclear?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’m having a bit of a crisis. I’m trying to grow my business. I know I want to be paid for the services I offer and what I’m worth. However, I’m having trouble clarifying what my vision is. I have an idea of what I want, but it’s so blurry and vague. I feel a little lost.

I grew up with the idea that you’re not supposed to want anything. Wanting is bad. I know that’s not true. But I don’t know how to get past that. Maybe I’m not letting myself think about my vision, because I think it’s impossible?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks so much for this GREAT question!

It starts out that way for everybody. Everybody goes through that initial phase where their vision is blurry and vague. You have to do the work though, because it’s not going to do it for you.

You have to focus on your vision and keep bringing it into clarity.

Take what you know now and write it down. Then keep adding to it and make it clearer, until you have a crystal-clear vision of what you want.

Let yourself imagine and fantasize about what you want. That’s what our imagination is for. That’s how you refine your vision.

Our desire is what guides us in the right direction in life. It’s God, spirit, or the universe trying to speak through you. If you find yourself thinking desire is bad because of how you were raised, just switch your thinking.

You’ve got to snap yourself out of this hypnosis here. You’re choosing to think the way you think.

It’s not happening to you — you’re choosing it.

You have to engage your ability to choose — choose to think differently. You have to practice this until it becomes easier. The only way for it to become easier is to practice doing it over and over again. There’s no trick out there that will make you not be pulled towards your past.

Your paradigm has almost exclusive control over your habitual behavior. The only way to change it is by you choosing to think something else. Immerse yourself in good information as much as you possibly can, so that you can change the entire paradigm.

When you recognize it, say, “Next. I’m not going to tolerate that. I’m going to think something else.

You’ve got to play hardball with yourself. Self-pity is not allowed here.

This is a no self-pity zone.

Is It Good to Save 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

Hi David,

I’ve heard you say money is currency, and it’s not meant to be held onto forever. So I was curious, how do you pair that mindset with saving money, diversifying, and investing? Those things are important too, right?

Neagle Code Answer

I don’t “save” money. With everything I do, I invest money. My money’s moving all the time. For the most part, my money is in a place where it’s doing some kind of good. It’s being put to work for me.

I invest in things that will grow myself, and/or my business—things that will pay off either immediately or at some point in the future.

I don’t hang on to money from the aspect of being afraid that I won’t have any.

That thought doesn’t ever cross my mind. I know that I can always make more money if I need it.

As far as diversifying and investing your money into different things, I think that’s an intelligent thing to do, for sure.

Sound financial principles are about growing your money, preserving the principle, and putting it to work for you.

I Keep Hiring the Wrong People

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,

My question is around team. I’ve recently hired a few people whom I’ve had to subsequently fire. It’s frustrating, because I need good people on my team right now. I feel like I’m stagnating my own growth. I’m not moving as fast as I need to be moving. It seems like the people I’m hiring are just taking advantage of the situation. I’m spending all this cash and they’re literally not doing the work.

Why does this keep happening? What is going on subconsciously where I’m attracting people who aren’t good for my business? Is it something energetic where I’m stopping my own growth unintentionally? Or is it just the simple fact of hiring slow and firing fast? I have contracts and statements of work, so these people should be clear on what my expectations are. As soon as I see that they’re not meeting the expectations, I address the issue head on.

Neagle Code Answer

I’m a big fan of not giving meaning where it’s not supposed to be given.

The truth is, you don’t really know who you’re hiring until after you work with them. Part of this may be that you need to take some time to find the right people. It might take a couple of hires to find the right person, that right fit.

And never forget that hiring is a SKILL.

Anybody can say whatever they want on a resume. References usually turn out okay, because people will only give you references from those who will say good things about them.

Ask yourself:

  • Have I done everything on my end to make sure I’m clearly communicating?
  • Do I have clear standards and expectations?
  • Am I holding people accountable?
  • Am setting them up for success, and doing everything I can to make sure they’re successful in their role?
  • Am I having them do test projects to prove their competence?

If you can check all those things off the list—and that person still isn’t meeting expectations—then they’re not the right person. Fire them fast and hire someone else. And don’t get bogged down into making this mean something it doesn’t mean.

All of those things listed above are a big piece of hiring someone—unless you’re flat out missing something key during the hiring process. If not, it could just be that they aren’t who they say they are.

It’s about looking at it for what it is, getting a second opinion, and being like, “Hey, here’s my process. Do you see anything I’m missing?” And then letting it go and finding the right person.

Sometimes you just have to go through that process of hiring a few people to find the right one.

And sometimes you may not be the right person to do the hiring. There’s nothing wrong with hiring a recruiter or a service to complete the vetting process for you.

Why Can’t I Hang On To 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

Hi David,

I’ve recently raised my prices and made almost $24,000. People are coming to me and asking to work with me, which is great. However, I’m having an interesting scenario where money’s coming in unexpectedly—and then in the same day, more of it goes out.

Bills are getting paid, and I’m happy to pay them. However, it feels like I’m chasing a dangling carrot. Stuff is coming in one day, only to be gone again the next day. It’s bizarre. I’m feeling anger and resentment about it, and find it hard to be in gratitude. Can you give me some guidance?

Neagle Code Answer

Do this quick little exercise. Hold your breath…and keep holding it. Don’t let it go. Just keep holding it.

Keep holding it…

Keep holding it…

Keep holding it…

If you’re like “David, I can’t do that,” then realize; you can’t do that with money either.

Just like you need to exhale and breathe in again, money needs to be spent (i.e., circulated) and brought back in again. That’s part of its nature.

Money wasn’t meant to come into our bank account and just stay in there. It’s meant to come in, and then go back out. Whether it’s for paying bills, being invested, donated, paying for things…

It’s meant to be in circulation.

The whole reason you bring it in, is so that you can send it back out again. It’s doing what it’s supposed to do. If bills are getting paid, and you’re making the money to pay them, that sounds like a good scenario to me. I’m not seeing a negative here.

My question to you would be: Are you paying yourself first?

This is the biggest mistake I see entrepreneurs make. They pay everyone else first and then resent the fact that there’s nothing left over for them.

This requires discipline.

If you want to generate wealth, I recommend setting aside 10% of your income and only using it toward things that appreciate. Do this religiously and without exception.

Once this becomes a habit you will see how easy it is to make enough to pay yourself AND everyone else.

You’ve got to take responsibility for your own situation.

You have to manage your money, and if you’re not good at it, hire someone to do it for you.

Are You Too Pushy?

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 say you make sales calls and stay on the phone with people until they basically tell you to screw off. I’m also a bit relentless like that—I’m not afraid to reach out and enroll people into one of my programs.

However, I don’t want to be pushy. I know everyone’s on their own journey, and I want to respect what the other person says. Some are a ‘yes,’ others are a ‘no.’ Some are on the fence, with time and money objections—I don’t want to let those people off the hook.

Where do you draw the line between letting them be on their journey, and also being relentless in your pursuit?

Neagle Code Answer

When a person tells me, “No, I’m not interested, I don’t want to do this,” I move on. They have to be willing to do it. They have to want to change.

I see many people struggling with the same issues for years—until one day they decide they’re going to let the struggle go. That’s when change happens. I’ll stick with them through that.

For people who are on the fence…I’ll stick with them until they tell me they’re not going to do what I’m asking them to do. If they show up to a coaching session but don’t do what I asked them to, I’ll fire them. I’ll give them like three chances to change something. But if they’re not going to do it, then we have a conversation about letting them go.

Otherwise, they’ll end up blaming you for the results they’re not getting.

If you’re upselling someone and they’re on the fence—don’t let them walk away and just “think about it.” It’s not a think-about-it situation. Which questions aren’t getting answered? Let’s have a conversation about it.

In my company, we ask people to really make a decision. It’s like, get off the fence already, and make a choice. If you want to do this, let’s talk about it, we’ll help you. If you don’t want to do it, just say so, and we’ll leave you alone.

We’ll also do what’s called a “take-away.” We’ll say, “It sounds to me like this isn’t something you really want to do, so let’s just take that off the table.”

Sometimes they’ll come back and say, “No, no, no, I really want to do this.” Releasing the pressure actually pulls them forward, because they’re not pushing against you anymore.

In sales, your job is to help the other person reach a decision, even if it’s a no.

If somebody doesn’t want to do my program (or offer), that doesn’t mean I agree with them. I’m just respecting their boundary. That’s all. If they don’t want to continue, I’m like, “Cool, no problem.” If they don’t see the value in it, then don’t do it. I don’t want people spending money with me who aren’t going to do anything.

That’s a total waste of their time and money, and I’m all about the win-win.

How I Stop Judging People?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I find myself judging a particular person in my life for the actions they’re taking. I don’t understand why they’re doing what they’re doing. I’m trying not to judge… but in my head, I feel like my mind automatically wants to judge this person. I’m thinking negative thoughts about it.

Even if I don’t say what I’m thinking out loud, am I still judging? If so, how do I stop?

Neagle Code Answer

The act of judging isn’t actually the problem. We all have to judge. We have to evaluate things as we go through life. That’s part of being human. That’s how we make decisions. We have to look at things (and people) and assess them to figure out if they’re healthy for us.

I don’t know what that person’s purpose is for what they’re doing. So I couldn’t give you the right information about it.

I think you need to simply ask that person why they’re doing what they’re doing, so you can get a better idea of where they’re coming from.

Judging has to do with perception.

You cannot not judge. It’s impossible. That would mean giving no meaning to anything in your life. That’s what we do—we give meaning to things. It’s a survival strategy. It prevents us from petting a tiger or something.

It keeps us alive.

If you’re thinking negative thoughts about the situation… then don’t think negatively about it. Think positively about it. Bring in gratitude if you need to. Be grateful for the situation.

But know that even if you think positively about it—you’re still judging. Switching from the negative to the positive makes sense, but it’s still a judgment.

I’m Afraid to Raise My Fees

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 attended one of your seminars in 2018, and I credit the first 15 minutes of it with fundamentally changing my business model. I’ve moved from a solely commission-based, to a fee-based model. I haven’t fully implemented this change across all of my customers yet. I’ve hit pause on approaching the ones who aren’t a giant pain in the ass.

What’s holding me back?

Neagle Code Answer

It’s a fear of losing business. It’s that simple.

Here’s the thing… sometimes when you make a change like that, you lose business—but then you end up getting more business.

During the most significant times when I changed my pricing based on my own growth, I always lost business at first. There were many people who weren’t going to continue. When you’re doubling or tripling your price, they just can’t make sense of it.

But then I immediately went out and brought in new clients at the new price. It wasn’t difficult at all. I was 100% solid in what I was doing, and that’s all you need to do.

If something is stopping you from moving forward and approaching that next level of customer, remember the following principle:

See what you want, be clear on your outcome, and go after it.

Fear shows up in interesting ways when you’re dealing with pricing and sales… it’s insidious as hell.

On Tuesday of this week I’m going to be hosting a FREE live 4-Hour Workshop to address some of the issues that pop up in sales and pricing when you’re looking to grow and expand, and I’m planning on giving everyone very specific step-by-step strategies to move through these issues quickly.
