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.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

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?

Neagle Code Answer

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:

because something much better is waiting for you.
