The Fear of Things Going Wrong in Business

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I want to maintain our high level of success, but fear keeps popping up—that something won’t happen, or something will go wrong. I know you’ve said many times you don’t eliminate fear, but I’m a slow learner. How do I eliminate fear and stay focused on the opportunity?

In chapter 5 of You Too, Can Be Prosperous, faith is defined as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The last sentence says, “Faith is both Substance and evidence, both cause and effect.” Does this mean my faith makes me open and available for the cause of what I want to show up? Then I act on the cause, which creates the desired effect?

Neagle Code Answer

Yes, absolutely. Faith is both the substance and the evidence of something that’s not seen.

Remember, faith is a dual-edged sword. If you have faith in your fear, you’ll manifest your fear. Faith is something you can’t see, but it’s extremely powerful and will manifest whatever side you put it on.

If you think about the fear, you’re opening that door to cause it to be an issue for you.

As far as “eliminating fear,” you don’t eliminate it. Here’s the thing: your subconscious mind doesn’t want you to hear that. It blocks this stuff out, because if we don’t hear it, we can’t use it.

Fear is coming from a pattern that’s already in your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between what’s real and imagined. Whether you have a fear that you actually experienced before, or you’re imagining a fear someone else gave you—when your subconscious mind goes to fear, it always views it as real.

Part of removing it is, you have to experience whatever the fear is about without actually experiencing what the fear suggests.

How do we do that without making the fear go away first? We use faith, courage, and confidence.

You tell yourself: “Okay, I’m afraid. I acknowledge I’m afraid, but I’m going to do the thing I need to do anyway.” The fear doesn’t get a voice in the decision. It’ll be screaming at you the whole damn time. But the more you continue to do it, it will subside.

The fear screams the loudest just prior to the decision. Once you make a real decision, fear subsides.

This is true with both business and personal stuff.

Part of the problem is, you don’t want to experience something going wrong. You need to change that. When things go wrong in business, it’s an opportunity.

Now, I’m not saying you need to sit and “make things go wrong all day,” but you need to not be afraid of anything going wrong. If it goes wrong, it goes wrong. We’re going to learn from it. It will open the door to something equal or greater. Bring it on.

It doesn’t matter what goes wrong. It always provides an opportunity for equal or greater benefit to what you were experiencing in every area of your life.

It happens, you move on, create the next thing, and keep moving forward.

What “Spirit” Really Means…

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

In the book, “The Science of Being Great,” Wallace Wattles says “Nothing that is possible in spirit is impossible in flesh and blood.”

I’m confused about the word “spirit.” Does he mean imagination?—like what I can imagine through the power of the spirit? Does he mean possibility? Or does he mean God’s power?

Also, when I’m imagining, am I creating or receiving? Is it me moving the particles in the universe, or am I just opening up to receive what already exists?

Neagle Code Answer

I think “spirit” means all three of those things—imagination, possibility, and God’s power.

When you’re imagining something, you’re tapping into the universal intelligence. You can call it “spirit,” “energy,” “God,” or whatever you want to call it. When you tap into that, there’s infinite possibility. Nothing is impossible.

To answer your second question about imagination… when you’re imagining something, you’re opening up to receive what already exists in the universe. But you’re arranging the particles based on the correlation and the clarity of your imagination.

For example, if the image in your head is fuzzy, vague, or confused—you’ll get fuzzy, vague, or confused results.

But if the image of your imagination is crystal clear—and you can see it, hear it, feel it, taste it, or touch it—then you’re “arranging the particles” in a more powerful way. The universe responds to your clarity of vision.

The clearer your image is (in your imagination), the more you’ll receive what matches that.

If you want to understand this more, read “Your Invisible Power” by Genevieve Behrend. She talks about visualization at the beginning of the book and does a beautiful job with it.

Why is My Vision Unclear?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’m having a bit of a crisis. I’m trying to grow my business. I know I want to be paid for the services I offer and what I’m worth. However, I’m having trouble clarifying what my vision is. I have an idea of what I want, but it’s so blurry and vague. I feel a little lost.

I grew up with the idea that you’re not supposed to want anything. Wanting is bad. I know that’s not true. But I don’t know how to get past that. Maybe I’m not letting myself think about my vision, because I think it’s impossible?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks so much for this GREAT question!

It starts out that way for everybody. Everybody goes through that initial phase where their vision is blurry and vague. You have to do the work though, because it’s not going to do it for you.

You have to focus on your vision and keep bringing it into clarity.

Take what you know now and write it down. Then keep adding to it and make it clearer, until you have a crystal-clear vision of what you want.

Let yourself imagine and fantasize about what you want. That’s what our imagination is for. That’s how you refine your vision.

Our desire is what guides us in the right direction in life. It’s God, spirit, or the universe trying to speak through you. If you find yourself thinking desire is bad because of how you were raised, just switch your thinking.

You’ve got to snap yourself out of this hypnosis here. You’re choosing to think the way you think.

It’s not happening to you — you’re choosing it.

You have to engage your ability to choose — choose to think differently. You have to practice this until it becomes easier. The only way for it to become easier is to practice doing it over and over again. There’s no trick out there that will make you not be pulled towards your past.

Your paradigm has almost exclusive control over your habitual behavior. The only way to change it is by you choosing to think something else. Immerse yourself in good information as much as you possibly can, so that you can change the entire paradigm.

When you recognize it, say, “Next. I’m not going to tolerate that. I’m going to think something else.

You’ve got to play hardball with yourself. Self-pity is not allowed here.

This is a no self-pity zone.

3 Steps to Forming a New Belief

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

How do you get a new belief from your conscious brain into your subconscious brain?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks so much for this GREAT question!

If you want to move a new belief from your conscious brain into your subconscious brain, you need to do 3 things:

  1. First, you want to visualize it.
    • Whatever the belief is — see it, create it with your imagination, and see yourself in it… as if you were in the first person. Not seeing yourself from outside of it, but looking from the inside out.
    • For example, if you want to create the belief that you’re going to get a new house, you would see yourself living in the new house — similar to seeing yourself in your current home now. There’d be no difference in your mind.
  1. Secondly, you need to get emotionally involved in the belief. Feel what it’d be like to already live there. The more emotionally involved you are in the belief, the more you sink it into your subconscious. Then at that point, it’s about repetition.
  1. Finally, whatever the belief is, you want to take the corresponding actions needed to produce the new result, so that your subconscious mind can’t argue about the belief on any level.

When it comes to money, people say all the time, “Oh, I want to be millionaire.” They’ll repeat to themselves, “I’m a millionaire. I’m a millionaire. I’m a millionaire.” But they don’t get emotionally involved with that statement or do anything that would cause them to be a millionaire.

So nothing happens.

You could say that statement till you’re blue in the face. But your subconscious mind will say, “Yeah dude, that’s great, but your bank account’s still negative.” That’s what allows doubt to creep into our mind.

If you want to become a millionaire, allow yourself to feel abundant, excited, and enthusiastic about what you’re doing. Go out and make sales, and actually see your revenue number going up. Then it’s easier to walk away from that voice of doubt. Nothing actually shuts it up. That’s a misnomer. We starve it out by not giving it attention.

All three of these are key — 1) visualizing the new belief, 2) getting emotionally involved in it, and 3) taking the actions needed to produce the new result.

If you mix it up the wrong way, it never works. If you do the work, yet constantly tell yourself, “This sucks”… or, “It’s never going to happen”… then you’re wasting your own time. You won’t ever change your belief.

It needs to be a positive confirmation in the direction you want to go or what you want to believe. You have to have an emotional expectation of reaching your goal, feeling that it’s already here, it’s already done. You have to take action based on the law of cause and effect — action that will create the result you want. Then you have to experience it, so you get the feedback of actually doing it in your life.

If you do this consistently, your belief will change in a short period of time. It doesn’t take long to change a belief.

This is Why You’re Stuck

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

Neagle Code Question

Ok, David… I’ve had the same results for the past 3 years, and now I’m even starting to see a decline. I can’t see what needs to change…but I know working harder is NOT working.

What is going on? I REALLY want a different result!

Neagle Code Answer

Amazing question!!

And the answer is very simple.

You are in resistance.

Resistance pops up when you experience a value conflict.

Let me explain…

If we are resisting something, we're literally pushing the good that we desire away.

It's like we're building a wall in our life, and the Universe is trying to send us the good that we desire, and it can't get to us because we've built this wall.

We call that wall resistance.

Resistance happens when your desire says one thing and your psychological program or your pattern says another.

Remember we are all a product of the people, places and experiences of our youth — and as children, security was incredibly important to us. We avoided doing anything that would jeopardize that security.

And we’ve carried that fear into our adult lives.

You, my friend, have a value conflict that is causing resistance to doing the things necessary to grow your business.

How does this show up?

  • It will show up with a person not wanting to make sales.
  • It'll show up with a person not wanting to create a product or a service that's relevant to what the consumer market needs currently.
  • It'll show up with a person either not hiring help or hiring the wrong kind of help.
  • It’ll show up in a person's attitude about their business and how they see the business world and their place in it.
  • It’ll show up in their lack of confidence in what they do and how they bring their product or service to market.
  • It’ll show up as a financial ceiling in their business.

Is this making sense?

I’m doing an entire 60-minute FREE training on The Universal Law of Non-Resistance on Tuesday at 2pm ET. I’ll be explaining this more in-depth and giving some tips on how to quickly identify and move through resistance…there’s nothing worse than feeling stuck! CLICK HERE  for the details!

When to reconsider a relationship

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I jumped out of a relationship last year, so my ex and I have been living apart for a year now. But sometimes, I still think about whether I should go back.

Should I completely stop myself from moving forward with my own life? Should I be with her and my child again? Because I still miss them…

I’m looking for a way to break free, but I’m afraid to make the same decision and another mistake.

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the great question!

Quite simply… here is the root cause of your problem:

You haven’t made a decision.

You’re essentially trying to live in two worlds at the same time. And the only thing that this does is that it adds even more confusion to your life.

What I’d suggest is to get crystal-clear on the vision of what you want for your life. This is a vision in which you won’t have to change anyone.

Remember:

Whenever doubt comes in our mind, it destabilizes the thought process.

Confusion does nothing, aside from opening doors to even more doubt in your life. 

This is because you’re considering a part of what you don’t want. Our mind then tries to rationalize this, and it does so based on pain – the very same thing you made a decision not to be a part of. And at this point, you start considering things that don’t serve you in any way.

Unless something’s changed so significantly that it now checks all the “yes” boxes in your mind, there’s no reason to reconsider the relationship.

All of this confusion can go away once you’ve clarified your vision. And the moment this happens, there will be no more of these hypotheticals. You won’t have to wonder what would happen if something or someone changes. 

Besides, it’s not your job to change anyone.

Rather, your job is to clearly define your vision and its parameters. By doing so, you’ll make every decision relatively easy. 

Either someone fits the vision of your life or they don’t. 

Then, it’s only a matter of making that final decision and moving forward.

How to overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

How can I overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question.

What you give your energy to, will grow.

So, if you're focused on what you don't want or what you don't want to happen, like the procrastination, clutter and disorganization, you will notice that you will create more of the same.

The way to handle and overcome this is by first becoming aware that your thinking is causing the problem.

Procrastination, disorder, and clutter are actually caused by incorrect thinking.

Second, it's more than just making a decision to get things done, because the disorder that you experience in your physical world is a result of the disorder that's going on in the way that you think.

In other words, you have to retrain yourself to think in an orderly way, which will then bring you a sense of calm because you're not worried about constantly being disorderly.

Understand that everything happens by cause and effect, but if you’re willing to step into being the cause, the effect will take care of itself.

It takes time. You have to really work on yourself to be able overcome procrastination, disorder, and clutter, but it can be done!

Your Quantum Leap: How To Know When It’s Happening

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

If you want something really bad and right away, is that a sign that you’re on the verge of a quantum leap?

Neagle Code Answer

Good question. Really good question.

When you want something right away, when you want to make a quantum leap, you have to ask yourself the question:

Do I want to do it right away because I'm in fear of something?

Is there any fear behind the wanting of a quantum leap?

If there is, you need to change that.

The desire to make a quantum leap should only come from a positive place.

Almost everybody that really, really wants a quantum leap is coming from some kind of fear.

A quantum leap happens when we become aware of something that we weren't aware of, and that awareness allows us to make a really markable gain in what we're doing.

For example, when I went from $20,000 to $62,000 in a month, that was a quantum leap.

It did not follow any of the rules in my mind for how that was supposed to happen.

I saw an opportunity that I hadn’t seen before, and I took advantage of it. Meaning I took action immediately toward it!

That's really when a quantum leap happens.

Don’t focus on a quantum leap…focus on being consistent

Remember, running a business is about being consistent in what you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward to hit the goals that you set.

Sometimes you will have quantum leaps, sometimes you won't.

Time Management And Goal Setting … How Do They Relate?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’ve heard you say that there is no time. What does that mean exactly, and how does time tie into the big picture in massive goal setting?

Neagle Code Answer

Fantastic question! I know this can be a confusing concept.

We all have the same amount of this illusion that we call time.

As human beings, we break time down into days. We have a 24-hour measuring system that we use, but what do we use time for?

We use it to manage our life.

You also cannot have time without space or space without time.

The moment you start to focus on time, like on your calendar or in setting your goal, you bring space into the picture.

The question is what are you going to fill the space with?

Northcote Parkinson has a law that says that work tends to fill the time allotted.

In other words, if we shorten the timeframe on almost any kind of work, we will get it done in a shorter timeframe than we originally thought that we could.

When I'm going to set a goal, I am going to pick a timeframe, but the question then is, “How do I know if that timeframe is correct?”

I don't.

If I don't reach the goal, I don’t change the goal. I only change the timeframe in which we're doing it.

One of the things that's important to understand is that things can happen much quicker than we think they can.

Think about how can we remove the time barrier and actually make something happen quicker.

Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't.

For thousands of years it took a certain amount of time to get from one place to the other because we couldn't fly, but once we understood how to do that, we certainly filled the time barrier from one place to another.

So, time is not set in stone as far as a measurement of what’s possible.

Time is really just a matter of perception.

Decision Making Stages

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

Does making a decision start with saying, “I'm making a decision,” or is it just a switch that you flip, and you just do it?

Neagle Code Answer

If a person is very solid in the decision-making process, they don't necessarily say, “I'm making a conscious decision to do this.” They know that they're doing it.

They're in a stage past the idea of not making a decision. When they see that a change needs to happen, they immediately see it, and they make that change.

To answer your question you must first identify what stage of decision making are you in?

Some of the stages of decision making include:

1.) Identifying you have a problem that needs to be changed or having a goal you want to accomplish.

2.) Next, you may do research and gather all the information you may need to make your decision. You then may weigh your options and evaluate the pros and cons of your potential decision.

And

3.) Finally, you make your choice, your decision and act on it.

Remember, some people may easily go through these stages without realizing they are checking off stage 1, 2, 3 etc. It happens naturally. As you said, they just “flip the switch”.  

For others, it is more of a conscious process, and they may say “I’m making a decision…”.

When you make a change in your life, you did make a decision, because you switched from one thing to another.

That's a decision.
