The truth about excuses

leave a comment »

excuses_Nike

Excuses keep people from so many things that would make their life better. Chances are pretty good that you’ve missed out on some of the greatest moments in your life simply because you let an excuse knock you out or keep you from even getting started with stuff you needed to do. Even when the ideas of inspiration come within you those same excuses have robbed you and taken that idea away. It sucks. It really does. You could have really been so much more.

But here is the truth about excuses today. When you can recognize this about excuses you will have more power to do the things you really want and achieve the success you deserve. Now I will start with one caveat and a last thought on why beating excuses is so important. Heres the caveat.

The number of excuses you chose to eliminate will be completely up to you. Beating excuses is not a one time event it will be something you have to do again and again and again. Everyday. Maybe even multiple times a day. It will not be easy. You will have to be aggressive and recognize these excuses every single time they show up.

Real-Samurai

And here’s the thought. There is an old Samurai saying that says “when we conquer the enemy within there is no enemy with out that can defeat us.” You’ve already heard that success is an inside job. Well, so is defeat. You need to decide right now that you will master the power over excuses so that you can create the things in your life that you really know want and deserve. You can develop your ability to reign over and destroy excuses. It is a habit that can be cultivated and built. So get started now!!!

Here’s the truth about excuses that I promised you.

YOU ONLY CREATE AN EXCUSE FOR THINGS YOU HAVE POWER OVER.

stop-making-excuses

In other words you only create an excuse when you actually have or had the power to do differently.

For example, If you say I will do it next time. Right now I just don’t have the time. You actually do have the time. You are actually just making a choice that the item you are excusing yourself from is just not priority.

If you say I am not making the phone call they probably aren’t there right now anyways. You actually have the power to make the call and you don’t always know if they’ll be there or not.

We only make excuses for something we could do. We don’t make excuses for things beyond our power. We don’ t make excuses for the weather, gravity or the way grass grows. We only excuses what we could have either done better or the things that we could do. Think about that next time and just get started.

Besides excuses never built anything.

Selling is a key to wealth

leave a comment »

Sales is one of the most important but dreaded skills you will have to develop if you want to become wealthy.  Sales are the way that all transactions take place. And I’m not just talking about financial transactions. In fact, sales are at the beginning of everything. Before you can receive money from someone you also have to sell them on the idea of what you are doing. That is generally thought of as the beginning… but there is even a series of steps that happens before that.

Before you can sell anyone on a transaction with you or even getting them to buy into your ideas there is one person that needs to be sold first. That person is you. You need to sell yourself every time you feel like staying longer in bed than you need to, every time you feel like you don’t want to get to work, or make those phone calls you know you should or whatever effort is required to stay grinding out your success.

It is not easy. And if you can’t sell yourself on going that little bit extra further you will never have great success convincing others that you are bringing a great opportunity to them. The energy you create in yourself is contagious. If your prospect senses that you are only partial involved and committed to what you are doing they will respond the same way.

So next time you are stalling or procrastinating something you know you should do – sell yourself on the idea and get started.

wealth Secrets that are often forgotten – 5

leave a comment »

Financial freedom is not an experience. it’s an exact number.

Just received a really cool thank you card from one of my students who expressed that learning the principle of what financial freedom really looks like meant to her. I must admit that when I learned this concept, that everyone misunderstands, from one of my mentors it also changed my life. If you’ve been to one of my events where we’ve talked about this principle you get it too. Financial freedom to most people is an emotional experience. In other words: more time off, more time with family, travel, the ability to do what you want, not worry about bills, etc. These are all incorrect definitions. Instead Financial freedom is one exact number. It is specific and clear and as such is attainable and near. When we know specifics we can achieve it. Your financial freedom is the exact amount of money you need to satisfy your obligations every single money. And to be truly free this amount of money needs to arrive passively. Type Amen if you get it. #douglasvermeeren #1wealthcoach #moneyandabundanceshow

Wealth Secrets that are often forgotten – 4

One of the biggest things that keeps people broke is inconsistency, hesitation and doubt. This morning I received an email from my assistant about one of my students who has a habit of committing to something and then changing her mind because she feels she always needs more information or isn’t prepared. I worry about her because no matter how often she gains the confidence to move forward she always changes her mind afterwards. Most likely we will stop working with her because I want to have a track record of getting people results. I am more interested in having successful students than an attendee who fills a seat in one of my trainings that someone more committed could have. Outside of my training she will also have a hard time building her wealth in the real world because people will stop working with her. Can you imagine her involvement in a major real estate deal or investment opportunity where she would commit and then keep pulling out. In the real world people don’t want the hassle and she will very quickly be excluded from opportunities. If you want abundance in your life start by making a decisions and stick with it.

Wealth secrets that often forgotten – 3

As I was writing on my newest book this morning on Wealth and Abundance I was thinking about something interesting one of my mentors told me once. I said to him, “I wanna be rich one day.” He said, “Thinking like that you’ll never get there.” I was really surprised I thought what I said was correct. He said, “It’s not committed enough try again.”

I then said, ” I am Going to be rich. And I am willing to do whatever it takes.”
Again he shook his head, “Not committed enough.” Frustrated I said, “Okay what’s better than that.”

He said, “I am rich and this is what I am doing right now.”

It was a profound lesson for me. True story.

money on your mind?

Money on your mind?

Wealth is found in your capacity to solve problems. The bigger the problem you can solve the more value you can add to others and ultimately the more wealth you will receive. Most people try to solve all of their problems by themselves. That’s why they are broke.

Build a strong network that you can draw upon to solve the problems that appear in your life and the lives of others. One of the things that I have learned form my mentors is to become a organizer of people to solve problems. When an opportunities appears rather than thinking about how I can solve it I think first of who in my network can solve it. I then say yes to solving that problem and delegate the activities to do so to others. In the end I am compensated for organizing the solution.

Even if you think and believe you can be abundant it will not be yours unless you are emotionally invested.

You must become emotionally invested in your strategies to create wealth. The reason why this is important is that there will certainly be problems, challenges and difficulties that will appear along the way. Unless you have a real commitment to your success these challenges will make it difficult to attain the success you are searching for. Many of my millionaire and billionaire mentors taught me to establish strong reasons why my abundance  is important for me. And to spend time rekindling those emotions each day. The more connected you are with the reasons why your actions are important the more likely it is that you will do the right actions.
