How Do I Handle My Crazy Work Load?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

How do I stop distraction? My mind is constantly pulling me in 10 different directions. I’ll study something you’re saying—then my mind drifts off…or my phone lights up and I get thrown off track.

Also, now that everything is open, my business is getting crazy. I’m trying to stay disciplined and stick to what’s on my calendar. But there are so many things I need to do that, and I keep getting off track. It makes me frustrated. There’s not enough hours in the day to get everything done, and my whole timing gets thrown off. Can you help?

Neagle Code Answer

There are a few things I’d suggest.

First of all, shut off the phone. Put it in a different room, away from you, and just turn it off.

Secondly, when it comes to studying, most people experience what you’re experiencing. When they’re reading or listening to something, their mind will go on a thought trip, based on something that grabbed their attention. They’ll start thinking about what they’re experiencing in the moment.

That’s why I encourage you to listen to things, and read things more than once. That’s the process of study.

Right now, your mind has a lot of unanswered questions… which I think is great.

Stop beating yourself up over it. I think you need to be a bit more calm and patient with yourself. Listen to the audios as many times as you need to, until you run the brain out of those questions, so you’re satisfied with the answers.

You’re doing fine. You really are. But calm down a little bit. Take a deep breath. Try to be as present as you can with whatever you’re doing.

Make the world start to conform to YOU, instead of you being pulled in so many directions by what’s happening around you.

Thirdly, when it comes to your business, you need help. Maybe it’s time to hire someone in the specific areas where you need help. Get an assistant or hire somebody.

That’s part of the challenge of being in business—is having to hire (and sometimes fire) people. Welcome to being in business.

Many business owners get hung up on, “How am I going to pay this person?” And so, they suffer and complain and don’t hire the person.

There’s no other answer. You can only do so much. Why be miserable? Just hire someone. If you have to lay them off in a month because things slow back down again, then you lay them off. That’s the nature of life.

But seriously, try to calm yourself and ask:

How can this be fun?

What’s the Process for Getting Unstuck?

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,

What do I need to do to get unstuck? Is stepping into gratitude all that’s required?

Neagle Code Answer

Great question!

To answer this, I’ll quote something from “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles.

In Chapter 7 on Gratitude, in the 13th line, he says:

“The whole process of mental adjustment and atonement can be summed up in one word: gratitude. First, you believe there is one Intelligent Substance, from which all things proceed. Secondly, you believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire. Thirdly, you relate yourself to it through a feeling of deep and profound gratitude.”

That’s it—that’s the process for getting unstuck.

When you’re stuck, it’s usually because you’re not viewing something accurately.

Getting unstuck is about adjusting your mind and shifting your outlook. (He calls this “mental adjustment and atonement.”) Atonement is simply correcting an error such as an error in thinking.

You bring yourself back to the awareness that “one Intelligent Substance” exists (i.e., God or the Universe and everything in it).

You see yourself as being a part of that “Intelligent Substance,” not outside of it. (Nothing can exist outside of God or the universe.)

And finally, you feel a sense of gratitude that everything you want is already here.

P.S. Whenever you're ready… here are 3 ways I can help you grow YOUR business:

The Art of Success – Article #1 – These Misconceptions Might Be Keeping You Stuck

These Misconceptions Might Be Keeping You Stuck

What two words can sink your success faster than anything else?

“I know.”

You probably grew up with the idea that if you read some information and can recite it back, then it’s something that you “know” and are able to apply to your life.

When it comes to the success that you want, nothing could be further from the truth.

If you want to be successful, you have to understand success.

What’s the difference?

Understanding is not just intellectual; it’s experiential.

When you understand something you’ve gotten to the heart of it and felt it from the inside out. The teaching is a part of you then, and you can apply it with ease and start seeing results.

Because the truth is, if you’re not getting the results that you want in your life, there’s something that you don’t understand. That’s all it is.

And that’s why I’m starting this series by correcting a pair of common misconceptions that might be keeping you stuck or in a constant state of struggle and frustration.

Common Misconception #1: Success is a future destination.
People usually view success as something to be achieved or a place to get to. They think it’s “out there” somewhere, and they strive and struggle to reach this unattainable place.

As you’ll begin to understand if you follow this series, success is not out there. It’s not something that you go out and get. It’s something that you discover in YOU.

Common Misconception #2: Success is a product of luck.
I was raised in a lower-middle-class dysfunctional family, where I was taught to believe that a loving God created us, and yet people lived in poverty and were sick, and they had terrible relationships. They were stuck and couldn’t figure out why.

Meanwhile, other people owned businesses. Some of these were entrepreneurs with a very strong work ethic, and yet, they also were stuck. While others, like a rocket ship, were very successful.

People in my neighborhood pointed at those successful people and said, “They are lucky.”

When I tripled my income in less than 12 months, that’s one of the things they said about me.

I’ll tell you all about it next week, but my rapid rise in income had absolutely nothing to do with luck.

Success has nothing to do with luck.

In fact, I don’t even believe in the concept of luck. And if you want to be successful, I suggest that you immediately delete that word from your vocabulary.

If success doesn’t have anything to do with luck, how does it come about?

As I just said, you discover it within yourself—and you do that through a very orderly process that bridges the gap between where you are and where you want to go.

I’m going to share that exact process with you in weekly installments over the next several months.

You really can double, triple, or even quadruple your income, and it doesn’t have to take a long time or be difficult.

So check back here next week to begin to understand how you can create the prosperous, abundant life of your dreams.

Stuck on the HOW?

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

Neagle Code Question

I have been doing well and have gained financial freedom and a fairly good 6 FIGURE passive income stream, but I feel stuck at this level. I have big plans and ideas that I am burning to get started on, but they need much more money than I currently have.

How can I receive this?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Jay, and thanks for your question!

The truth is if you have the desire to bring your plans and ideas into reality, there must also be the way and means to do so. This is a wonderful example of the Law of Polarity.

The “stuckness” you’re experiencing could be related to two things:

1) You are looking for the “how” and not seeing it based on your current situation

Or

2) You are resisting doing something that your sub-conscious perceives as a risk.

Really think about this for a moment. “What would need to happen for me to do this AND that?”

If you’re focused on the how, and keep seeing all the reasons that you can’t do this, do the following:

• Split a sheet of paper into 2 columns. At the top of the left side write down “Why I Can’t” and on the top of right hand side write down “How I Can”.

• Go to work emptying all the thoughts about why you can’t on to the left side of the paper, then draw a big X through those thoughts.

• Next focus on the right hand of the page and write down all the ways you can bring in the money you need. DO NOT CENSOR anything.

Note: You WILL see the 1st step in the “how”, but chances are it’s going to require you to do something that will force you to grow and step out of your comfort zone.

Take action on one of the ideas you wrote down on the right hand side NOW!

How do I get unstuck in my business?

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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I feel really stuck. I have LOTS of ideas for my business, and yet, I sit paralyzed because I can’t make a decision about what I should do first. I’m afraid I’m going to choose “WRONG”.
HELP!!!

Neagle Code Answer

First, there is no such thing as a mistake. Everything you do, regardless of the results you experience, is bringing you closer to truth. All of those experiences force you to grow, and in the growth, you begin to discover who you are and what you want for your life.

Many entrepreneurs hesitate to get started on an idea because they are afraid of making a mistake. Actually they aren’t afraid of the mistake itself, they are afraid of what other people will think about their decision and outcome.

So you must first DECIDE.

Choose ONE of your ideas. It doesn’t really matter which one, just choose one that inspires you the most.

Then take ACTION on that decision. Don’t worry about the results, don’t fret about what people will think, and don’t stop.

You see Spirit won’t give you your entire plan. You must take action on the first step before the 2nd step will be shown. If you never take action, you’ll never see the next opportunity.

If you should fall flat on your first idea, be grateful for what you’ve learned from it, and continue to look for the next opportunity. It WILL be there.

You will either win or you will learn, in which case, either outcome is a GIFT.

[Fast Cash Formula Series] Article #15 ~ What’s REALLY Holding You Back?


In my most recent article, I shared the first of two favorite tactics of the subconscious mind to keep you where you are.

That first tactic is our tendency to look for the magic pill, the easy solution, rather than choosing the option that requires us to change and which, therefore, leads to success.

The second tactic is what I call the rabbit hole of the subconscious mind.

The Rabbit Hole
Often when people get stuck and feel they can’t move forward, they think that a block stemming from a childhood trauma of some kind is holding them back. So they start focusing on what that could be, thinking if they could just remember or figure it out, they’d be able to release the block and start moving again.

The trouble is they’ve just fallen into a trap ~ the rabbit hole of the subconscious mind. They could stay on a therapist’s couch for 20 years, looking for memories, talking about change but not making any, and, therefore, unlikely to make the real growth that leads to the big wins.

It’s Your Excuse
The thing that’s holding you back is your excuse: what you say to yourself in the moment about why you can’t do something that would take you where you want to go.

For instance, when you say, “I can’t go to the event because I don’t have the money or I don’t have the time,” that is in your imagination. You do have the money. The Law of Polarity says that’s true. If you have a desire, the way to fulfill that desire is also around you. And you have 24 hours in every day just like everybody else. You get to decide what to do with it.

Your Excuse Is Perfect for You
But you don’t see it that way, because your subconscious mind knows the perfect way to stop you. The excuse you come up with is totally logical, makes sense emotionally and is tailor made just for you. It’s so perfect, you can’t see any way around it.

And if you don’t bring in some other knowledge or perspective, you never will get around it. It’s another trap. And you will remain stuck.

How to Get Unstuck
You need people in your life, like a coach, to call you on the excuses you use to hinder your growth. You need to become aware of what you say to yourself so that you can stop believing it, and then employ helpful ways to make decisions.

For instance, if you’re considering whether to go to an event or take a class or start a project, ask yourself The 4 Questions I shared with you recently. If you get a green light, your answer is yes. Take advantage of the opportunity.

Stop making excuses and, instead, make the changes you need to make, and along the way you will grow. You will see your path lighted a step at a time before you, leading you toward your goal.

I am stuck, stuck, STUCK!

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

Question:

David, I just can't get started. I have so many ideas floating around my head that I don't know where to begin. They sound exciting and then when I start to work on them, it just doesn't feel good enough or the market is so saturated it feels fruitless.

I'm struggling with my purpose, what I should do with my life. It's truly leaving me lost and depressed because I can't figure it out. I've read everything on finding your purpose, spent thousands of dollars trying to figure this out with all the “guru” books/events out there and alas, I'm still at square 1.

Any ideas?

Answer:

Great question, and one I know many entrepreneurs who want to start their own business struggle with.

There's a lot of chaos going on in your mind right now, so let's look to the truth and shine the light on some of those lies.

First, there is no such thing as a mistake. Everything you do, regardless of the results you experience, is bringing you closer to truth. All of those experiences force you to grow, and in the growth, you begin to discover who you are and what you want for your life.

Many entrepreneurs hesitate to get started on an idea because they are afraid of making a mistake. Actually they aren't afraid of the mistake itself, they are afraid of what other people will think about their decision and outcome.

So you must first DECIDE.

Choose ONE of your ideas. It doesn't really matter which one, just choose one that inspires you the most.

Then take ACTION on that decision. Don't worry about the results, don't fret about what people will think, and don't stop.

You see, Spirit won't give you your entire plan. You must take action on the first step before the 2nd step will be shown. If you never take action, you'll never see the next opportunity.

If you should fall flat on your first idea, be grateful for what you've learned from it, and continue to look for the next opportunity. It WILL be there.

You will either win or you will learn, in which case, either outcome is a GIFT.

Blaming your competition?!?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Judy Katz. You can find her on the web at www.wealthtransformations.com

Question:

How can I break out of the pattern of being the best kept secret when it comes to my business? I fall back with the thought that so many people do what I do. How am I different, etc

Answer:

I’m going to cut right to the chase with this one…

The truth is that there is no such thing as competition.

There is only one YOU. There may be 5,000 different people who teach what you teach, sell what you sell, or provide what you provide, but there is only one Judy Katz! You bring your gift to the world through you, and there isn’t another you and so there cannot be competition!

AND

You’re using this excuse to stay hidden and small.

So the real question to answer would be; what are you afraid of that’s keeping you the best kept secret when it comes to your business?

I know that Spirit wants more for you than you want for yourself. Your purpose on this planet is NOT to stay hidden.

So, my question to you is…how is it serving you to stay small? Now, before you react, take a moment and really think about it.

What would happen if you really stepped into your purpose and became the huge success you know you would be?

Would it mean that your relationship with your friends or family would change?

Would it mean that you’d need to let go of something that you weren’t so sure you could let go of?

Would it mean that others may judge you?

You’re staying small for a reason, and it’s been a choice of yours to do so. The key to getting out of your own way is to become aware of what you are resisting. What are you not willing to do that’s keeping you stuck?

You also have to understand that if you continue to stay small, you are doing a disservice to those people who are looking for your help. Remember, if you have the desire, the way to fulfill it is waiting for you.

It just starts with a decision to get very honest with yourself about why you are choosing to stay hidden and then begin to walk right through those fears.

Once you become aware of your fears, you must bring the truth to it and TAKE ACTION!

Each day when you wake up, write down the 6 most important things that to be done that day to bring you closer to the goal.

Practice this every day.

It will take discipline, but it’s the most important habit you can develop as it will have a DIRECT impact on the success of your business.
