Am I worthy of raising my rates?
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous
How do I convince myself that I’m worthy of increasing my prices and receiving the financial success that I so dearly desire? I think somewhere I have a belief that I don’t deserve financial freedom, because even though I want it, it eludes me.
You don’t have to convince yourself of anything. You just have to look at Truth.
The truth is that you are a divine being, created in the likeness of Spirit, God, Allah, or whatever spiritual belief that you subscribe to. You are worthy of everything and anything that you want.
This is TRUTH.
What made Bill Gates or Oprah worthy of their riches? They are the same as you.
Nothing separates you other than your own perceptions and beliefs.
The fact that you are even asking this question shows that somewhere a message got handed to you that you agreed with. The message could have been that you need to work hard for anything in life, or that you weren’t good enough, smart enough, or pretty enough. Your self esteem was damaged, and you vowed that you’d never open yourself up to that vulnerability again. Questioning worthiness comes from a place of being afraid to be seen or heard for fear of ridicule.
Imagine for a moment what your life would be like if you didn’t care what others thought. If you weren’t worried about making mistakes, looking like a fool, or being humiliated. How would your decision making be different? More importantly, how would your LIFE be different?
I encourage you to make a decision today that you ARE worthy. Don’t “convince” yourself.
Stand in your power, say it out loud, and continue to do so until small changes in your thinking and behavior begin to occur. Every morning, look in the mirror, and tell yourself that you’re perfect just the way you are and that NOTHING unworthy of God is worthy of you.
Treat yourself like the King or Queen that you are.
Accept nothing less than what you desire and take action as though you are filled with confidence.
Only then will you see your brilliance in this world and be shown the opportunities in life that will change EVERYTHING.
Because, my friend, THAT is the TRUTH, and Spirit wants you to have all that you desire even more than you than you want it for yourself.

First, thanks to the person who stepped up and asked this question! I too have felt this way.
David, I’m just finishing The 7 Mindsets of Manifesting – and now here is this question. Love that the message keeps showing up until we decide to work through it! This is a biggie. Thanks for making it so clear and connected to Universal truth!
Thanks David! I REALLY needed that this morning!!! I love your stuff! Keep up the great work! I look forward to meeting you at Be the Change in FL at the end of the month!! ~Gwen
I agree with David’s answer and comments. The problem however, for
each of us is how to go from agreeing to Belief, deep belief in our-
Selves. This is the missing ingredient, the Belief and if it is missing
nothing else will work. My question is how do we get to the point
where we now truly believe without question and unfailingly in the Truth
– of who we are? What does it take to get to that point?
May be I am not getting the point, isn’t “raising rates” more related to the quality of the service or product? Is it really an issue with worthiness? Can insecuritynot also come from not knowing what the service or product is actually doing for people, shouldn’t the focus be on the client? I thought the money people pay is not about somebody “being worthy”, but for the benefit they get from somebody’s work. At least I thought that it is not about me, but about what they get out of my service or product. The more they get out of it, the more they are willing to pay, no matter how worthy I feel. Even a divine being has to provide value for money, it is not just entitled to anything just because of the divine status, or not?
I particularly love the line “make a decision today that you ARE worthy. Don’t “convince” yourself.” I find with everything it really, really, really starts with making a decision first. If I think I have to convince myself of something, then I will continue to have to convince myself of something. Thank you David for such clarity in this answer.
Great post. I’ve felt the same – afraid to raise my rates even though I’m totally skilled at what I do and have always had a talent for it. Definitely a fear of ridicule lurking behind that fear.
