Must I spend money to make money?


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

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

I’ve recently heard you tell people that they need to spend their way to success. Can you explain that a little better please?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the question!

What I mean when I say you have to spend your way to success is you have to be willing to invest in your own growth.

If you’re not willing to invest in yourself and your business, you will never be fully successful. For you to grow and your business to grow, you have to up-level.

You have to believe that you can earn a certain amount of money. Then you make financial commitments that will give you enough pressure to get to work. You want to commit to the next level, but not so much that you fold under the pressure.

When you’re too comfortable with where you are, it doesn’t create urgency to change and you won’t do what you have to do to earn the money you want.

It is easier to stay in your comfort zone than to go beyond it; therefore if you don’t create the urgency that forces you out of it, you will get just to the edge of your comfort zone, but not far enough to really create change.

So raise your standard of living and buy that new car or that new thing you want.

But remember, you also have to raise your standard in your work to bring in the money to pay for it.

Keep doing this and your level of success as well as your income will continually increase month after month.
