How Do I Hold Myself Accountable?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. 

Neagle Code Question

How do I keep myself accountable to my goals and deadlines I set? Should I hire a coach, or is there a way to do it myself?

Part of this is, I’m doing something I don’t really love to do. I have a family and responsibilities that aren’t going away. What I really want to do is educate people and help them change their lives.

Neagle Code Answer

People often ask me, “How do I control my mindset? How do I hold myself accountable?”

This question always indicates that a person is doing something they don’t want to do.

If you’re doing something you love and you WANT to do it — then you wouldn’t need to be “held accountable.” You would just get up every day, and do it. You’d do it to the best of your ability.

We only have this problem when we’re doing something we don’t want to do… OR if we’re afraid of it.

Which one is it for you? Is it something you don’t love? Or something you’re afraid of?

If you don’t love what you’re doing… ask yourself: “Why am I continuing to do something I don’t really love?”

Why can’t you do what you love AND meet your responsibilities?

Ask yourself: “What do I love to do?” Figure out how to bridge the gap between doing what you “have” to do and doing what you LOVE to do.

When we don’t have a passion in life that means everything to us — any fear will stop us.

When you pick the thing you love to do the most, you’ll crawl over a mountain to get it done. The courage and enthusiasm will show up, allowing you to conquer any fear.

When you’re doing something you love, you don’t need a coach to get past the fear.

If you really want to help people — find one person every day that you could help in some way. You can help them with absolutely anything.

You can do this without thinking about business, clients, customers, or charging anyone.

Start embracing this gift in all areas of your life. If you go to the gas station, ask someone, “Is there something I can do for you today to make your day great?”

Give people gifts, smile at them, tell them they look amazing. Over-tip someone. Find ways to be a benefit to every person you come in contact with.

You’re not doing it for acknowledgement. You’re doing it because that’s your purpose in life.

This will get you in touch with the side of yourself that you are suppressing — that says, “I can’t do what I love, because of all the responsibilities I have.”

If you really want to help people, it won’t matter what it is. Find people to help every day.

How to Break the Debt Cycle

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

Neagle                 Code Question

Hi David,

I have been listening to your and realized a $ pattern I have perpetuated my entire adult life. The pattern has been to invest in school, and now my business, which creates debt. That in turn creates pressure to work to eliminate this debt, which I always have, only to turn around a repeat the same pattern. My question is now that I can clearly see this pattern how do I get to the root cause of it. I know it has nothing to do with the money or the debt but whatever belief or value is attached to the pressure that comes with this cycle.

Hi Mikki, and thanks for your question!

Here’s the thing…getting to the root cause isn’t necessarily going to solve the problem, and it will just distract you from doing what’s necessary to change the pattern.

Sometimes it takes awhile to get to a root cause, and it’s even more difficult if you’re trying to do it yourself.

What I suggest is to start focusing on the solution to the issue rather than on the cause (which just keeps you in the pattern).

The solution is to RAISE YOUR BOTTOMLINE.

Right now, you’re used to only bringing in “just enough”. You have to raise that bottom bar.

For example, instead of setting your sights on just bringing in enough to survive, increase that to 10%, 20%, 30% ABOVE what you need to just get by.

And then DO NOT LET YOURSELF off the hook.

You see, it’s a two-part process. The first part is making the decision to bring in more than enough, the second part is being willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you hit that goal.

You may want to start with a small increase to begin to build that muscle, and once you hit that goal, use that momentum to keep going to the next goal.

You’ll have to keep those commitments to yourself or this won’t work. You must not stop prior to hitting the goal.

If you do, you’ll be back in the same pattern.

Give yourself this new experience of bringing in more than enough, and you’ll break the pattern!
