My employee/friend can’t keep up. Should I let her go?


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 have an employee who has been working with me for a long time. We’re friends, and she works for me. The problem is: I’ve grown and she has not. I find myself NOT asking her to do things because I know she’s not at the level to do the task, so I do it myself. More and more I find myself imagining hiring someone else who can meet me on my level and keep up, but I care about her and don’t want to make a mistake by letting her go. I’m concerned I won’t actually find the right person to fill the role or that my expectations are too high. How do I know what’s the “right” decision to make?

Neagle Code Answer

Hi, and thanks for the GREAT question! I know many people struggle with this.

One very important TRUTH to understand is that everything in the Universe is seeking you. Health, wealth, relationships, it’s all seeking you.

It’s like that famous, finger-pointing Uncle Sam poster: Prosperity wants YOU.

So when you have a desire for something, it’s because that thing is seeking you and it’s resonating with something that’s inside of you.

The Law of Polarity states that a desire can’t be felt until the supply is ready to appear.

So what does this mean?

It means that the desire you feel means the right person to fill that role is already looking for your position.

It also means that the more qualified person is also, based on the Law of Vibration, in harmony with your desire.


It also means that you’re tolerating your current employee, which is not only negatively affecting your business, it’s also keeping this new person from appearing.

The REAL problem here isn’t about making the right decision is it? What you’re actually struggling with is either a) you feel responsible for this current employee b) you are afraid of what she’ll think about you if you let her go or c) you are purposely sabotaging your business.

And it could be a combination of all 3.

There’s one more thing you need to understand…and you may want to write this down and re-read it.

If it’s not working for you, it’s not working for her.

If you look to the truth you will see what is the “right” decision.
