Are you making excuses to play small?


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


I’m a mom, wife, sister, caregiver, chauffeur, self employed hypnotherapist, and do volunteer work. Not enough hours in a day to focus on my love – my business. Help!!



Let’s go back again to what we know as truth.

The truth says that we are responsible for EVERYTHING in our lives, both the good and the bad.

If that’s the truth, I have to ask you why YOU have put yourself in the situation of being the mom, wife, sister, caregiver, chauffeur, volunteer and hypnotherapist?

There are thousands of entrepreneurs who are moms, sisters, caregivers, and more, and still have the time and energy to focus on their business.

Why have YOU made it so difficult for YOURSELF?

You see, people do this to themselves all the time. They make everyone in their lives more of a priority than themselves. Most times it’s because it allows them to stay small, which keeps them feeling safe.

So, how is it serving you stay small?

Why are you using your sister, husband, and children as excuses not to succeed?

Do you only feel worthy when you are providing for others and sacrificing yourself?

Are you worried about what other people will think of you if you FINALLY make yourself a priority? Will they think you’re selfish?

Let me tell you something… most people have the definition of selfish all wrong.

The true definition of the word selfish is: expecting others to live the life that you want to live. Many people think that if they live the life that they want to live it’s selfish, and they are WRONG.

The truth is the truth. You can be all the things that you mentioned and still be a successful hypnotherapist. Many have done it before you. I, myself, built my business to seven figures, and I was still a husband, father, brother, chauffeur, fixer of all things broken, and coach to others.

The difference is that successful people don’t use the situations in their lives as excuses to play small.
