I needed to sell my boat…
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I recently read something you had written a while ago about the Law of Sacrifice. I don't get it… you teach that we can have it all, so why do we have to sacrifice anything?
Hi Jean! What a GREAT question, and one lots of people misunderstand.
The Law of Sacrifice is quite simple…
It states that one must
let go of something of a
lower nature for something of a higher nature to take its place.
It's interesting you ask this question, because earlier this week I sent an email to my community about my decision to attend my first personal development seminar.
It was in 1993 after I had bought Tony Robin's cassette-based virtual program. I wore those cassette tapes out, and knew I HAD to go to his seminar.
My problem was, that I didn't have the several thousand dollars for the ticket.
I remember looking out my window and seeing my boat (the boat that I had worked like crazy to be able to purchase). And a voice inside my head said, “Sell the boat.”
Here's a picture of it…
I thought to myself, if I sell my boat and go to this seminar, I'll be able to buy ANY boat I want.
So, I sold it and went. And if you read my email this week, you know that it was at that event that I first got a glimpse of my purpose.
This is the Law of Sacrifice at work. I needed to let go of the boat (which was no longer serving me) to let something of a higher nature come in.
You see, nature abhors a vacuum, and by letting go of something of a lower nature, you instantly make room for something of a higher nature (something you REALLY want) to come in.
Sometimes you may need to let go of a relationship, a value, a belief, or a thing that's no longer serving you; but when you do that — you grow — and you will immediately attract something of a higher nature.
I've never regretted selling that boat…and in fact, I was right, what I learned allowed me to get an even better one. (see below)
So, Jean, ask yourself this:
What am I holding on to that is no longer serving me?
And then my advice:
LET IT GO…
because something much better is waiting for you.

Thanks Nara, glad to hear it struck you. Appreciate the post and the readership.
OK David…i really liked this post!
You made it personal and added some PICTURES 🙂
Thanks Mark, a little #TBT from the way back machine. Man I loved that Lund, but selling it to attend Tony’s event was the best decision I ever made. At the time it was tough to see it go, but I knew my desire and grit was going to allow me to buy any boat I wanted once I mastered myself and the sales process. That kick a** Chaparral is a testament to that. All it took was a decision! Appreciate the post.
