This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I’ve heard you say fear screams the loudest just before you make a decision. I had a goal to make seven figures. I’ve been doing “terror barrier stuff,” doing things I’ve never done before, and getting good at facing fears. “You get the courage to do the thing by doing a thing.” I did everything that would lead to making seven figures.
But if I’m honest, I never thought my goal would actually occur. I wasn’t worried about it, because I didn’t believe it could happen. I wasn’t absorbing it as a real goal. Now, it’s happening. I’m super delighted and excited.
Now I have this bigger fear where I’m like, “Oh my God, now I’m going to BE that person who makes seven figures.” To overcome this—do I need to make a decision to BE that person now?
Yes. You need to decide to be the person who makes seven figures.
It’s a double-sided decision. It’s the decision to become that person, and it’s also the decision to let go of the old one.
This can feel very much like someone’s about to die. Because someone is about to die. It’s very real.
It’s not a metaphor.
That’s the decision you have to make—to become this new person who makes seven figures.
Decide that earning this amount of money will become part of your new reality, your new experience, and your default.
Decide that you’ll continue doing the necessary things a 7-figure earner would do on a daily basis—including facing all those fears.
Use all the tools you have at your disposal and everything you’ve learned to stick to this commitment.
…And congratulations for making that decision!
