Do you have this blindspot?

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

Neagle Code Question

David, I watched your video training this week on financial set points, and so much of what you said helped me make sense of what’s been happening in my business. But I still don’t understand the role that shame plays in controlling my ability to become wealthy. I understand how shame relates to being poor, but not how it relates to being wealthy.

Why would I be ashamed of being wealthy when it would allow me to do so many amazing things including helping others?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for your question.

Your subconscious mind is insidious as hell. Even though it doesn’t make conscious sense to you, this “unseen” program is running your life, and it’s what I like to call a Blind Spot.

Let me explain.

As I said last week, each one of us has an internal “set point” that subconsciously governs our ability to make money.

This set point is based on the beliefs and values that we accepted prior to the age of 7.

AND, this set point is controlled by SHAME.

So, think about this…

What were the messages you received from your parents about wealthy people?

I know my parents passed the belief on to me that wealthy people were dishonest, just lucky, or even crooks. And the message I received was that I did not want to be like them.

Other people may have heard things like, “Look at that big shot, driving that car…they must be compensating for something.”

Or

Maybe the message of “we are not like them” was passed on simply by observing how your parents acted or changed when in the company of someone they perceived as wealthy.

Really think long and hard about the messages (both spoken and unspoken) that you received growing up.

It’s the reason why people may have a very profitable month or two, but then end up right back where they started. It’s pretty easy to hide a little extra money, but if you were to really be able to generate wealth and begin to spend it, people would notice; and in comes shame without you even realizing what’s happening.

In case you missed my free video training this week, I’ve decided to offer two encore presentations. If you’re experiencing an inability to create wealth in your life, I suggest you check it out…I want to walk you through EXACTLY how to identify what’s controlling your ability to make the money you desire rather than “barely enough”.

The REAL reason for the ups and downs

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

Neagle Code Question

David, I have heard you say that everyone has the same amount of money, meaning that there’s not some force that allocates riches to some people and nothing to others. We actually all have the ability to become wealthy if we desire to do so.

Here’s my issue: I have a deep desire to build my business, help others and create wealth for myself and my family, but month after month, I make just enough to cover my expenses. What am I missing???

Neagle Code Answer

Hi and thanks for your question.

The answer is quite simple.

What you are missing is awareness.

Let me explain.

Each one of us has an internal “set point” that subconsciously governs our ability to make money.

This set point is based on the beliefs and values that we accepted prior to the age of 7.

I know it sounds crazy to think that information you accepted prior to the age of 7 would even be a factor in your ability to make money, but it is 100% true.

It keeps you on a never-ending teeter-totter between making just barely enough and not making enough.

One month you’ll make more than you need, and the next you’ll have to scramble to make sure everything (and everyone) gets paid.

Your set point was created out of your subconscious beliefs about wealth and poverty, and is


Controlled by
shame and guilt.

And here’s the thing…until you become aware of this invisible mechanism, you’ll have a difficult time hitting your financial goals.

You’ll think that you need to:

• Work harder and longer hours

• Hire more people

• Change your programs or pricing

• Learn a new strategy

• Get another degree, certification or training

• Change jobs, businesses or careers

And really you just need to understand the underlying mechanism that’s secretly pulling your strings like a puppet, so you can then make a conscious choice.

I get this question so often that I’ve decided to start this year with a BRAND NEW video training on this exact subject. I want to walk you through EXACTLY how to identify what’s controlling your ability to make the money you desire rather than “barely enough”.

You better BELIEVE it!

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

Neagle Code Question

David you talk about belief in all of your teachings. Can you explain how belief works in helping me create what I want? I mean, if I don’t have the belief, how can anything change for me?

Neagle Code Answer

Absolutely!

Beliefs are powerful, and they can be used to create the life of your dreams, or keep you a prisoner in a life you never wanted.

Throughout history, people have created marvelous things…but all of these creations had to take place in the mind first. It had to start off as a fantasy.

Do you allow yourself to fantasize about what you REALLY want?

Or do you allow the voices in your head to shut you down?

To create something you must get emotionally involved in it, and believe in that idea for it to become a reality.

But unfortunately if we are not aware, we are controlled by the beliefs that were given to us by the people who raised us, and those voices end up telling us to:

• Keep quiet
• Stay safe
• Fit in
• Be nice

instead of encouraging us to break the mold and create our own life.

And if we don’t know that’s what’s controlling our results, we are powerless to change any of it.

So tell me, what’s the truth about what you want to create for yourself?
Is it taking away anyone else’s right to choose?
Is it unethical or breaking any laws?
Is it something you truly desire for yourself?

Choose to believe in your desires and opportunity WILL show up. It MUST.

Most of us are carrying around all kinds of beliefs that are keeping us from where we want to go, which is why I’m hosting a free training next week designed to help you Stop Playing Small and Create an Extraordinary Life. It’s the perfect shot in the arm you could use to really jumpstart 2019.

My friend has a lack mentality. How do I respond?

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

Neagle Code Question

I was visiting with some friends who are very much in the lack mentality. For instance my friend prides herself on how she only buys her clothes on sale or at Goodwill because it saves her so much money or constantly is telling me how much she paid for something. I find myself either biting my tongue to share my new insights with her or judging her. She is a close friend and I don't get to see her often, but how do you respond to people who have different beliefs than you?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the great question!

I know first hand that this is a question that many people struggle with.

The first rule of thumb is that you should always surround yourself with people who are of like mind and goals. There is some truth to the old saying; “You are a product of the five closest people in your lives”.

The second thing I’d like to point out is that if you’re not verbally disagreeing with your friend, her lack beliefs are seeping into your subconscious.

Have you ever spent time with them, and then suddenly found yourself slipping back into lack thoughts and decisions, not even realizing it until you caught yourself days later?

And the third point here is that your friends aren’t asking you to help them change, therefore, it’s not your place to “set them straight.” They have the right to believe whatever they want, and if it bothers you, it’s your responsibility to make the choice to accept them, or to limit your time with them.

Usually when I get this question, I ask, “How is the relationship serving you?” I think this is something you may want to take a look at.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “A relationship is for a reason, season or a lifetime.”

It may be time for you to spend less time with these dear friends, and focus on making new friendships that support your ideals and growth.

[5 Simple Steps to Unshakeable Self-Confidence Series] Article #6 ~ Step One: Identify the Thoughts That Keep You Stuck


When you were a child, the adults around you either nurtured the self-confidence you were born with — or they tore it down.

Unfortunately, as I’ve said, most people’s natural self-confidence was torn down.

Again, this wasn’t malicious in most cases. Your guardians were trying to keep you safe, and, in the process, taught you to fear.

Luckily, rebuilding your self-confidence is not as difficult as you might imagine. It follows a simple procedure of only a few steps.

I Can’t Because…
The first step to rebuilding your natural self-confidence is to identify the thoughts, stories or beliefs that are running through your subconscious, reinforcing the fear messages you received as a child, and keeping you stuck.

One of the best ways to recognize those thoughts is to find the I can’t because messages that are operative for you.

Let me explain.

Most of us have some variation of this statement running through our minds: “I would like to do this, but I can’t because ____.”

Whatever comes after “because” reveals two things:

1. The circumstances or environment that you are experiencing.

2. And the story that you have about those circumstances or environment.

For instance,

I would like to go to the conference but I can’t because:

…I’m not ready.

…I don’t have the money.

…I’ll just waste the opportunity.

…I’m spending too much time away from my kids as it is.

…I’m not smart enough (or accomplished enough) to play at that level.

Each of those clauses reflect a different limiting belief about why that person can’t go to the conference.

Apply This
Before we go any further, I want you to apply this for yourself. Recognize what I can’t because messages are controlling you.

I would like to ________, but I can’t because _________.

You don’t have to spend a lot of time digging this out. You don’t have to go to a psychiatrist.

Whatever follows “because” tells you exactly why you believe that you can’t do, be or have the thing you want.

Now, chances are you have several I can’t because messages swimming around your subconscious.

So, do the exercise again with a different situation. And then again.

Take this opportunity to ferret out these toxic messages, once and for all.

What to Do Next
You now have a list of 2, 3, 5, 7 harmful messages that you believe. So what do you do now?

First, let me acknowledge that your belief system is your reality and perception of what you’re experiencing. And whatever you’re perceiving is very real to you. I understand that.

The problem is, as long as you’re coming from that kind of thinking, you are allowing the fear messages you learned as a child to undermine your self-confidence, and limit your life.

So Step One is to identify those limiting beliefs, thoughts, or stories that you tell yourself about why you can’t do, be or have what you want.

And Step Two is to replace those thoughts.

I’ll show you how to do that next time.

Why you should leave your corporate day job

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

Neagle Code Question

I am in two worlds, the corporate world during the day, and then my world as an artist – if I have the energy afterwards. I want to transition from the corporate world to having a successful, lucrative career as an artist, and so far have had some small successes, with being juried into shows, etc. I want big success, I want to get my stuff out there and share my vision of beauty with the world. I am not financially secure enough to just quit my day job, and I find the struggle disheartening at times. Any words of insight would be very much appreciated!

Thanks!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Leona!

This is a great question and a perfect example of what I wrote about last week in reference to what Maxwell Maltz calls a Cybernetic Mechanism.

You see the truth is that you have a deep desire to be massively successful artist, but you also have a conflicting “set point” or sub-conscious belief that is giving you the message that it’s just not possible.

This belief is causing you to choose the perceived security of a day job over fully stepping into your gift. There may also be a hidden fear that’s keeping you from sharing your work with the world.

It’s hard to know the set point that’s stopping you without actually having a conversation with you. But just know if you truly wanted to be an artist more than anything and share your work, you would.

Uncovering those hidden beliefs you have is going to be key in helping you see how realizing your dream of becoming an artist is possible.

One suggestion I have for you would be to set a date to leave your day job and then go to work preparing for that day.

You must force yourself to release the belief that you need the day job to support you, it’s simply not true.

The other suggestion I would make is to really look at your beliefs and values. If you can become aware of what’s controlling your thinking, you can consciously choose differently.

It’s one of the main reasons I’m hosting a one-day training in New York on this specific topic. My goal is to help all the attendees identify their own set points that are in their way of their own wealth and success.

Change your internal “set point” to increase your income

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I’m so frustrated, and I’m not sure what to do to solve my problem. I seem to be stuck under a great glass income ceiling. Every time I have a great month and make sales, the following months decline, and my yearly income always stays the same (3rd year in a row). I feel like I’m “doing” everything I can to grow my income, and yet at the end of the year, here I am AGAIN.

Any suggestions for me?

Thanks!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Britt!

What a fantastic question!

First I want you to understand that sometimes your income has less to do with what you’re “doing” and more to do with what you believe.

Let me explain.

Maxwell Maltz, in his book Psycho-Cybernetics, teaches that all people have an internal “set point”, which he calls a cybernetic mechanism.

A cybernetic mechanism is a mechanism in both man and machines that determines and measures the deviation between a set point and a goal.

In fact, we have these set points everywhere in our lives. Think about your weight, your finances, and your environment.

What you may be experiencing is your own cybernetic mechanism or “set point” in regards to your yearly income.

Researchers have found that our cybernetic mechanisms are set based on our past programming. This means our ability to hit our goals, is actually based on beliefs that were passed on to us by others.

The only solution is to really become aware of what those hidden beliefs are, and then consciously begin to change and re-program them.

If you feel like you’re constantly trying to pedal up-hill, chances are that’s because your cybernetic mechanism is kicking in and your sub-conscious beliefs are working against you.

This is the reason I decided to host a 1-Day Income Acceleration Intensive this January in New York City. During that single day, I plan to take no more than 100 attendees through a process that will help them identify their cybernetic mechanism or set point and the beliefs behind why they just can’t seem to hit their financial goals.

My friends are penny pinching & proud! Do I keep quiet?

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

Question:

I was visiting with some dear friends who are very much in the Lack mentality. For instance my friend prides herself on how she only buys her clothes at Salvation Army because it saves her so much money or constantly is telling me how much she paid for something. I find myself either biting my tongue to share my new insights with her or judging her or thirdly slipping back into the same thought patterns. She is a dear friend and I don't get to see her often but how do you respond to people who are on a different path than you. Is it best just to keep quiet?

I want my wife to grow too…

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

Question:

I have been struggling for some time to replace the limiting beliefs that were holding me in an endless loop. I meditated on it and repeated affirmations. I made new contacts with myself and people whom I know have the knowledge to help me to move into the world that I have been desiring. My question is, how can I help my wife to move with me instead of against me in this effort? I love her and don't want to leave her and our family, however I feel that every time I make headway in the direction of my aspirations, she keeps me from making that final leap of faith to actually start accumulating wealth, and we fall back into the debt habits and I have to start all over. Help me help her, please!

Answer:

Thanks for your question, Steven.

First, your wife's personal growth is not your responsibility.

I know that may seem harsh, but it's a selfish thing to force someone to change who does not want to change.

We are all responsible for our own growth, and there are those who welcome the change, and others who have no desire to change.

Your only responsibility is to accept her for who she is, and then ask your self if you want to be partners with someone who doesn't want to change. And I think it's important to for you to understand that no one can hold you down, unless you allow yourself to be held down.

With this in mind, ask yourself how it's serving you to allow her to hold you back.

Don't say it doesn't, because if it didn't serve you in someway, you wouldn't be experiencing the situation.

In any healthy relationship, both people should have the room and freedom that they need to foster their own growth. You have a responsibility to yourself to pursue your dreams, and if she doesn't agree; she has the option to leave the relationship.

As Vernon Howard so eloquently states, “Behave the way you really are, even if it ends a relationship. Never suppress yourself in an effort to influence, hold, or win someone. When we are unreal, so are our rewards. To say this in another way, never behave the way you think the other person wants you to behave, but in the manner you must. Nothing you really need to do or have ever requires a yielding to a person or custom.”

Your relationships will only affect your ability to manifest if you're not true to yourself.
