Is success reserved for someone else? Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Often times when I speak with people about success I will hear people point out that many people are born into ideal circumstances and that’s why they are successful. Sometimes it will be mentioned that those in the “lucky sperm club”  were born into money and opportunity and that the biggest successes experienced in the world are reserved for them.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 48After interviewing more than 400 of the worlds top achievers today (and even some who could be considered as being from the “Lucky sperm club.”) I would like to refute this idea. Success is available to all. Success is not a respecter of person. Success follows those who comply with the rules and laws of how success is created.

In fact, I have seen those from the lucky club who have not created lives of success because they haven’t kept these rules. They may have started with money or opportunity but very quickly they have revealed their values.

What we value most in life immediately becomes reflected in our actions and results. The only thing I have observed is that those who start with more money and opportunity can often get their a little easier or quicker, but that certainly does not prevent others from getting there. I have also noticed a massive shift even in the last few years of people who had no previous advantage rise to the highest levels of success.

The most important commodity for success (even more important than money and opportunity) is resourcefulness. Anyone can access this – especially with the way the internet connects us all together. There are no limits. Py the price and you will gain the reward.

Everything around you can change – Douglas Vermeeren

Everything around you can change

By Douglas Vermeeren, Creator of Personal Power Mastery

Too often people become discouraged because they are caught in the middle of a less than perfect situation. Sometimes these circumstances can even be painful. They are certainly not inspiring and often times do not give the individual involved the tools or beliefs that things can be better. we are highly influenced by what we surround ourselves with and these things often limit us rather than empower us. But are we trapped by where we are and who we spend time with. Is there no hope to live the dreams we have if we are surrounded by challenging circumstances?

The simple answer is YES! Things around you can change. Here are a few significant ways that negative circumstances can change. And quickly…

  1. Change the way you look at things and they will change. When we see things as a challenge they stay that way. But when we look at them as stepping stones to a new situation they become that. I do recognize that some situations are just difficult to paint positive. In some situations such as a abuse that may be near impossible. And quite frankly when something is just plain wrong you should not look at it in an acceptable manner. But even in those severe negative situations you do have a choice in how you will respond and react. Rather than look for a way through LOOK FOR THE WAY OUT! On this note I also want to mention that there is support, help and loving people who will be there for you to make this escape. Start looking at it in the way that you know there are people who will support your exit. You are not alone. Even this shift of perception will give you strength and courage to start to create the changes you need.
  2. Raise your standards. As you change what you will tolerate your entire situation will change. If you decide that you deserve better or more in your specific situation you will start to become more. As You become more you will begin to attract the things that will change your situation for the better. Most people settle for their current situation and so their current situation continues. If you don’t level up your life you will always get what you’ve always gotten.
  3. Get moving. Action always changes a situation. Results appear as a result of an equation. Things around you will change in the same way.  1 + 1 = 2. You have control over one of the 1s in this equation. It’s you. If you decide to raise your standards to a 2 and act that way the end result is this equation 2 + 1=3. The end result has changed. You can also choose to not participate which turn turns your 1 into a 0. 0+1=1. The equation is changed again. recently one of of my students shared that their marriage wasn’t going as planned. There was a lot of conflict and challenge. We had this discussion about equations and she decided that even if her partner was not going to be loving and kind she could be. Even if her partner didn’t value some of the things she did she would still live her live with those values. So in some circumstances she became a 2 in their 1 +1 and a 0 in their 1+1. As you can imagine things changed in both circumstances. Douglas Vermeeren PPM 47In this case her spouse decided he needed to change his behaviour to keep up with the new and improved version of his spouse and this story now has a happy ending. That is not always the case, sometimes the changes to where you know you need to be result in a recognition that you and the other person are more empowered apart.  as you create yourself in the way you know you should be those answers will appear.

Change is required for success and satisfaction in life. When the things around you begin to conspire to help you magical and marvellous things begin to happen. Everything around responds to what you do next. Both in positive and negative ways. So determine carefully what you want and then use these 3 concepts to shift your reality to follow your vision.

Get to Work – Douglas Vermeeren

In 2006 the most misunderstood personal development movie in the world came out. That’s right I’m talking about The Secret. With the movie appeared a concept many people had never hear of before “The Law of Attraction” became the hot topic of conversations everywhere. While I am a firm believer of the law of attraction it quickly became evidently clear that most people had the wrong idea of what it was and what was required to activate the law.

One of the more memorable experiences that I had was with a friend of mine. After just learning about the Law of Attraction he told me how he was going to test it out by using it to acquire a brand new Ferrari. Long story short, after meditating, hoping and wishing for his Ferrari something happened. I’ll never forget the day he invited me for lunch to show off his Ferrari. As I sat at the table across from him he pulled out the business card for his new assistant whose last name was Ferrari. It had arrived but not in the way he expected.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 46

It was a valuable lesson. we can’t leave what we want out of life to a wish, want, dream or regular thinking. Those things are important.But without the element of work focused on a specific outcome you have very little control over what arrives in your life.

Ferrari-458-Italia

The Law of attraction requires us to have strong feelings around what we want to attract and then do everything in our power to bring it about.

As I interviewed more than 400 of the worlds top achievers I saw this formula at work again and again. Each of these top achievers possessed a highly emotional commitment to what they wanted to achieve and then they worked harder, longer, more constantly and consistently than everyone around them to make that goal happen.

If you want to be a success you will have to do the same.

The 2 Reasons Why You Quit! – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

The two reasons why people fail
By Douglas Vermeeren, Creator of Personal Power Mastery

Why do people fail to accomplish the goals and dreams that they select for themselves. It ’s not because these dreams or goals are not important. It’s not that they don’t really want these things in their lives. The dreams and goals are often worthy and inspiring things that would make the participants life more full and rich. There isn’t a problem with the destination of where they want to go. The problems that keep most people from succeeding is found in two different obstacles they may encounter on the way to that goal.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 45

The two problems that they can encounter can be divided into two groups; Feelings and Fiction. Although you can experience both simultaneously we’ll talk about each separately.

Feeling are the emotional concerns that a person encounters on their way to accomplish their dreams. Often these are manifest as feelings of fear, inadequacy, unworthiness and doubt. However this category of feelings can include additional feelings of laziness, contentment, or a willingness to settle for where they are currently. It can also include feelings of discomfort when it comes to new changes required to get to the new goal.

doubt

We will talk shortly about how and who overcomes the feeling obstacle to getting to your goals.

The second group is fiction. These are the stories that people tell themselves that keep them from accomplishing the goal. Another word for these stories might be excuses. Most people think excuses are not based on a perception of reality but rather a lie that is told to keep progress from happening. This may be true some of the time. My experience has reveal that although excuses rarely give power to the person sharing them there rate occasions when the excuse maker is correct. Some of the fiction they are sharing to escape the responsibility of accomplishment is based on fact. In other words the story a person may be telling themselves may indeed be based on real life deficiencies in the plan, the skills, the abilities and the opportunities needed to accomplish the goal. But while there may be real reasons why getting to the goal may be difficult high achievers always find a way around, over of through the obstacle. We’ll talk more about this shortly because the good news with this category is that there is always a way to keep going.

This-is-a-Work-of-Fiction-1

So how do you recognize whether your reasons for struggling with your goal is based on feeling or fiction? Recently I was having a conversation with my 18 year old son. In this discussion he was telling me about a goal he had decided to possibly abandoned. “It was just too hard.” He told me as we begun a discussion on this feeling or fiction conversation. He declared that it was both feeling and fiction that was keeping him from success. I decided to test the theory and you can too with anything preventing you from success.

frustration1

The first step to determine if something is feeling or fiction is to define it. If you can actually define what it is or what would have to happen to get past this obstacle then it is fiction. It is based on a story you are telling yourself. If you need X to happen in order to move forward it is fiction. If you need X as a resource to appear it is fiction. If you need X to go away it is fiction. The good news about fiction is that you can always get help to solve the problem. The bad news is that if you let a fictional story or external excuse stop you you are coming from a reactive perspective. If you haven’t read about the reactive/proactive theory in my articles yet I encourage you to do so. But in a nutshell proactive people own their situation and recognize they have power to change things. A reactive person gives their power away by blaming external sources and they determine that they can do nothing until the problem outside their control is resolved.

If the problem is based on a story or fiction that you are telling yourself if you shift to proactive point of view you will always find some form of solution of something you can do to either get through, around, over or under the problem at hand.

If the problem is feeling it is always internal. It will often have no reason for being. It will just be a feeling. Feelings are experienced often just because you are trying to achieve something new that you’ve never experienced before. There is no problem with feelings. Feelings are normal and natural. Being afraid, nervous or unsure are natural states. They do not mean you can’t do a thing. Often the result of a feeling comes as you decide to interpret the feeling. Some people get nervous and stop. Others experience nervousness and it ignites within them great power, sharpens their mental capacity and primes them to experience a massive rush.

As I interviewed the 400 top achievers in the world many professional athletes and entertainers told me of the kinds of feelings they would have before performances or competitions. Butterflies was a term I heard again and again.

Power over feelings comes as we recognize that they are just that – feelings. The best way to overcome feelings of doubt, fear, unworthiness or nervousness is to just do it. Commit yourself to recognizer he feeling and then do it any ways. The more you push through uncomfortable feelings the better you will get at it.

So the next time you think about quitting and giving up because of either a feeling or a fiction you tell yourself keep going. The finish line is up ahead and you can do it.
