More Than Just the Money
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Emily.
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?
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.

This article was just what I needed.
I’ve been feeling less than enthusiastic about what I’ve been doing. I realize I’ve been attached to the money alone. Picking a goal I really want opened my eyes and has me choosing what I really want. Attaching the money to the goal I can see is key.
I’ve been looking for something to turn me on but focused on the money alone.
