This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life” comes from Michael.
I've heard you teach that building a business doesn't need to be hard, but with all the chaos around me, the sales objections, and difficulties in hiring a team, it sure DOES feel hard. David, please help me find peace in this craziness!
Hi and thanks for the question.
Here is the truth:
Peace is a choice.
I think it's very safe to say that every entrepreneur on the edge of an up-level or big growth opportunity has experienced what you described above.
The interesting thing here is that YOU are actually creating the chaos.
Let me be more specific. Your EGO is creating all the chaos, and it's serving a particular purpose.
All of these events are designed to place fear, worry and doubt in your mind, so that you go back.
But here's the great thing about the chaos. If you're creating it, you can stop it.
The great thing about being human is that you have the gift of choice. You can choose how you respond to these situations, and it's in that choice that you have the power to escalate or de-escalate them.
You can choose not be emotionally attached to the chaos around you and even in the midst of stress, you can remain peaceful.
If you're choosing to make things hard, take a look at your value system. Chances are that value system dictates success must be hard.
Remember, everything just “is”. It's your reaction and judgment that makes things hard.
Make a decision that it's easy to grow your business, and then when a negative result shows up, see it for what it really is and don't get emotionally tied to it.
Instead ask: “What do I need to see about this situation so that I can make a different choice and experience a different result?”
If you can do that, you'll be well on your way to building a more peaceful business.
