Looking Back or Forward

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

A couple of months ago, we executed some pretty bold moves and made some hires that we couldn’t really afford. We did it because we knew that it was the team that we needed to reach our goals. 

As we’re now nearing these goals, I’m wondering whether I should stay focused on them. Or should I look backwards and figure out what caused the initial inadequate results?

Neagle Code Answer

The only time looking back makes sense is when you need to change what you’re doing.

It’s always a good idea to know your metrics and take a look at them. This way, you can see what’s not working and make the changes necessary to move forward.

What you never want to do is get caught up in regret and doubt over your initial decision.

As for everything else, you must look forward and shift your emotional center. You need to change your vibration enough to move to a different level of awareness.

What does this mean specifically?

You’ve hired your team and now you must make the money necessary to keep it. In this case, it’s got to become a must for you, rather than something you hope will happen.

Your thinking must change to address this. There’s no room for guesswork here – just a clear “must.”

Napoleon Hill talks about this in Think and Grow Rich. 

When you make this shift, you get introduced to your other self. This is the side of you that’s capable of so much more and being more effective than you ever thought possible.

To reach this person, you need to make a decision. Again, it needs to become a must, not should.

So, yes, you should look back if what you see will help you move forward.

But remember to make that shift into what must be. That’s when you’ll see what you’re truly capable of.
