Success is EASY...find out why here (It's FREE) =>

They think I’m too expensive

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 parted ways with a client who was becoming a toxic relationship. After making that decision, many new leads showed up in my pipeline.

I’ve had calls with several of them, but many haven’t panned out. I believe part of it is “sticker shock” — they think I’m too expensive.

Now I’m starting to go into doubt, fear, and worry. I’ve become a split personality. Some days, I’m focused, pumped up, excited about my goal, and ready to do what I need to do. Then something happens… a client says, “No,” or they cancel the call before we talk. I’ll think, “That one didn’t work; now I’m screwed.”

It’s a back-and-forth battle. I’m frustrated with myself, and starting to fear this won’t work — maybe my goals are wrong. Why am I doing this?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the GREAT question!

When you have a vision and a goal for your life and business, it is your responsibility to hold onto that dream.

It’s not anybody else’s responsibility to verify that you’re on the right track by buying from you.

Everyone has a dream, and everyone is responsible for holding on to their own dream.

If someone doesn’t see the value in what you offer, and is not willing to pay for it — there could be a million different reasons why. But it has nothing to do with you.

It has nothing to do with you being on the right track, or being on the wrong track.

It IS an indication that they’re not the right client for you.

This is where I see people get really messed up. They’re using outside verification to determine whether or not they’re doing the right thing.

The responsibility for that is squarely in your hands.

You’re responsible for bringing your vision and goal into the world. You’re responsible for finding the people who see the value in it.

More people will always tell you “no” than “yes.” That’s how business works.

Your job is to find the people who see the value, and who will say yes.

For the ones who don’t — don’t take it personally, because it’s not personal. Their “no” is a reflection of everything going on in their life, their judgments, and their evaluation of things.

It has nothing to do with you.

There are plenty of people here for you, who will buy from you, so you can become wealthy… and THEY can receive the service you’re offering.

But the vision is yours. You have to hold it, and go look for the right people. That’s it, period.

Every time someone says “no” or doesn’t show up for a call — all that is saying is they weren’t the right person to begin with. That’s it.

Move on from it, and find those who are right for you.

Lost? Find yourself by doing THIS

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 HATE when someone asks me what I want. My brain literally goes blank when faced with that question. I have tried everything to get a clear picture of what I want and where I want to go, and all I see in my mind is static. Is there something I can do to help me get clear?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the fantastic question!

Most people don’t spend enough time looking deeply at their own life.

Here’s what I suggest:

Take an entire day, and go sit in nature where it’s quiet.

(If you’re in a big city, and can’t find a quiet place… get everyone out of your house for the day, and spend the entire day just sitting alone).

Get yourself a notepad, pen, or pencil. (Don’t use the computer for this exercise.) Something magical happens when we put pen to paper.

Just sit there.

…And start writing whatever comes into your mind.

It doesn’t matter how crazy or off topic it seems… write it all down.

I’d suggest giving yourself a full 12 hours to do this exercise. Start early in the morning, maybe after you’ve showered. (The shower is more metaphorical than anything else. It’s like you’re cleansing yourself and your mind.)

Prepare yourself a cup of tea, coffee, fresh greens, or whatever you like. (No alcohol.)

Sit down, and be quiet. Be present. Pay attention to whatever is running through your mind. As different ideas and topics go through your mind, write them all down.

As you do this, you’ll begin to find a sense of “order” coming into your mind.

Your thoughts will become more orderly and clearer. They’ll become more directed.

Once you get the most “common” thoughts out of your head and on to the pape… you’ll find that new thoughts start coming to the surface… thoughts you’ve never had before.

You can ask yourself a question.

You could ask your subconscious mind, “Please show me what I want to do in life.” “Show me what my next goal is.” “What do I really desire?”

“Reveal to me what I want most. What do I want to be, do, or have?”

You could even drawn three columns on the page:

“Be” in the first column.
“Do” in the second column.
“Have” in the third column.

Write down anything that comes to mind in each column.

Eventually, you’ll start coming up with things that inspire you, things that bring you freedom, joy, happiness, and excitement.

As you write those things down, you’ll open the door for more of that “road” to reveal itself to you.

I didn’t know how either

I Didn't Know How Either

When I started my company over 17 years ago, I came to a crossroads.

I had to choose between staying at my corporate job (where I worked for a direct fuel distributor) — or walking away, so that I could step into something related to my dream (my life’s purpose).

I didn’t know what my dream or purpose was, exactly.

All I knew was that if I stayed in my job, I would never be able to live my dream.

Today people always ask me, “David, how do I do this? Here’s what I want. But I get stuck in the how.”

Well, I was stuck in the same place. I had no idea “how” to do what I’m doing today. I had to learn all of that along the way.

But I couldn’t learn any of it without first coming to that crossroads — and then having the faith to make a right turn instead of a left turn.

“Left turn” was staying in a place that was comfortable.

“Right turn” meant stepping out in faith towards my dream… and making the decision that I would let Spirit (or God) lead my life.

I had to trust that the opportunity would show up, and it would guide me to where I am now.

To the average person, that’s crazy… quitting your job to follow a dream.

I was married, had four kids, a mortgage, car payments, the whole thing. I had everything we call “the American Dream.”

I was going to risk it all to follow what some people would think is a crazy dream that had no basis in reality.

I’d never done it before. Nobody I knew had ever done it before, and nobody even knew how to do it.

How do you make a decision that seems absolutely nuts in most people’s minds?

It required that I gain more than an ordinary knowledge of FAITH.

Faith would allow me to step out and embrace my dream… and do it while knowing EVERYTHING that was required for me to succeed, would show up.

That’s exactly how I did it. I totally stepped into that road.

I studied faith and applied it to my life. This allowed me to overcome a massive amount of fear.

On this day before Thanksgiving, I urge all of you to take a few moments and remember those times in your life where you stepped outside of the box, did something no one thought you could do, or really followed what your inner voice was telling you to be, do or have.

Be grateful for your own courage and faith and all the people and resources that supported you… and remind yourself that you CAN do GREAT things through the power of decision, faith and action!

Lost in my own 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

I have my own business. After years of struggling, I’ve been able to live off my work, but never in a sustainable, recurrent way. I’m burned out. This year has been terrible. I feel like not doing anything anymore, and I’m lost. I have an email list, but they’re not very responsive.

I’m in a position where I need to bring in money… and I’m stuck. My mind keeps thinking, “How do I bring in money?” I get paralyzed in analysis.

What can I do, or launch, to turn this around?

Neagle Code Answer

The best thing you can do… is to do the thing that touches your heart the most.

Don’t think about the money. Don’t think about the fear. Instead, do the thing that brings you the most joy.

Doing the thing that brings you joy will bring the highest level of service to other people. AND it will bring you money.

…But nothing will happen if you just sit there in your fear all day.

It’s time to get serious. It’s time to say to yourself, “Listen, I’m not going to tolerate this fear running my life anymore. I’m better than this. I can make a difference in people’s lives.”

You have to make a difference in your own life first. THEN you can make a difference in other people’s lives.

…But you owe it to yourself to do what makes you happy.

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?
