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.

The Best Place to Start

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 literally just found you and have started listening to your podcast. You quote SO many books and resources, but what do you believe is the single best place to start studying if I’m new to the “personal development” world?

Neagle Code Answer

I get this question all the time and LOVE answering it!

I will give you a list of the books that I’ve found most helpful to my growth and the growth of my students.

If someone were to ask me what book has been the most influential in my life, I would say it is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles. I still remember the day I picked it up and read it, and I can honestly say, since that day over 20 years ago, I’ve never travelled or taught without it.

It’s a book that explained so much for me, and even now, I can open any page, at any time and see the truth in its pages. It appears to be a short simple book, but actually I’ve found that there are hidden “secrets” that most people miss.

I’m going to be sharing those secrets in a free training I’m hosting on Tuesday. If you’ve read it several times, or even if you’ve never picked the book up before, I invite you to join me.

If you’re interested, CLICK HERE.

The other books I’d recommend are:

  • You2
    – by Price Pritchett
  • God Works Through Faith
    – by Robert A. Russell
  • The Four Agreements
    – by Don Miguel Ruiz
  • Think & Grow Rich
    – by Napoleon Hill
  • Working With The Law
    – by Raymond Holliwell

Before you go blasting through each of these books to check them off your list, I suggest that you “STUDY” them. Go slow and take them chapter by chapter.

Each one of them contains pure gold.

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.

I Derail Myself

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

Neagle Code Question

I'm clear enough on my desires (to not be overweight and poor), but I'll start taking action, and as soon as I notice results starting to come into my life, I allow myself to get badly derailed. It's almost like paralysis sets in and I stop. Have you seen this before, and how the hell do I beat this?

Neagle Code Answer

Yeah, I have.

Every person has to overcome the part of their subconscious mind that wants them to stay the same.

The moment you start to do something different, especially if you're producing different results, it’s going to send a trigger up to your subconscious mind. And it will engage whatever story it has in order to keep you safe.

In what way do these new results threaten something either imaginary or real in your life?

The idea is that you need to integrate the new you with your new behavior.

You need to build a vision of yourself making the amount of money that you want to make and being in your ideal body.

You need to hold on to that vision, and get excited about that vision every day until your mind begins to accept the new you.

Now when you create this new image or the suggestion of a new image, which is you being healthy and wealthy, it's totally contradicting the image that your subconscious mind knows of you that it believes keeps you safe.

As you're taking the new action and getting the new result you have to build a new image in your mind of exactly how you want to be.

And then you need to incorporate that into everything that you do in your day-to-day in your life.

SEE YOURSELF AS HAPPY, HEALTHY, WEALTHY enjoying yourself as the new person you want to become.

Without faith there is no vision

Without faith there is no vision

Often when I teach, I refer to writings from different authors and religions that I’ve studied over the years.

Whenever I do that, I always ask that if I’m quoting something that’s not based on your particular religion — or which doesn’t reflect your understanding of God — then I encourage you to replace whatever terminology I’m using with words you’re comfortable with.

For example, if I say the word “God” and you don’t like that term…replace it with “spirit,” “universe,” “energy,” “the divine,” or whatever word you prefer.

The idea is not for us get blocked or hung up over a particular word…because that prevents us from understanding the deep truth of something.

Instead we need to figure out a way to allow ourselves to hear the higher truth of something — even if the words aren’t what we prefer.

It doesn’t matter to me what religion a person practices, or doesn’t practice.

My intention is to teach people to use universal truths in order to make their life exactly how they want it to be, and to help them fulfill their purpose.

Having said that…here’s a quote I want to share from Proverbs 29:18:

”Where there is no vision, the people will perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”

“Vision” means an image you hold in your mind of something you want to create or experience.

“The law” means “universal truths.” (Some people refer to this as “God’s law” or “God’s word.” Again, use whatever terminology you’re comfortable with.)

Without faith (in the laws or universal truths or “God’s word”), you cannot have future visions for yourself.

Without faith, you’ll only have the same vision you’ve previously had (usually a vision that was given to you by someone else)…and which you’ve been following all your life.

When you create a new vision for yourself, you must have faith in it…or it won’t come to fruition.

Faith gives you a vision beyond what you’re currently experiencing.

It lets you believe in something that doesn’t exist yet (i.e, the vision or goal).

In order to go from where you are now…to somewhere that’s absolutely extraordinary…you’ll have to overcome any fear that goes along with that (including any procrastination or complacency).

This requires a different kind of faith — a faith based in deep understanding of universal truths.

Without faith, success is impossible.
