What are people Saying about the new movie HOW THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS? — A few reviews

Did you hear what people are saying about this extraordinary movie? If you haven’t seen it yet — you must! www.HOWTHOUGHTSBECOMETHINGS.COM

“The movie “How Thoughts Become Things” is a must see for everyone! The many powerful statements remind us of just how valuable and powerful our thoughts are. The movie shares valuable and life changing information that every viewer can benefit from in multiple areas of their life as well as affect how they impact those around them. I am so grateful to Doug and his associates for greeting such a masterpiece.” — Paula Vail owner of wellnessinspired and host of “Elevating Your Life”

“How Thoughts Become Things” is a movie for anyone looking to grow personally to a higher level of thinking. It’s applicable and tangible advice from both established names in the personal development industry with some newer faces adds genuine value to the subject as a whole. My favorite takeaway from this movie is to better manage toxic people instead of just avoiding them altogether. 7 out of 5 stars! — Dom Brightmon, Going North

The movie “How Thoughts Become Things” is very well layed out from the beginning about thoughts and concepts, then holding the vision of desires and into execution and taking action to manifest those thoughts. These principles should be taught in our school systems. The information in this documentary, would make for a fantastic book that can be used in academia. People from all around the wold are opening up to these creative principals. – BRAD MagicBrad GUDIM Synergy Ventures LLC

I throughly enjoyed watching ‘How Thoughts Become Things’ as it helped me to reinforce teachings that I have seeded into the lives of my five precious children. I learned so much about myself and the world around me and I was able to shift my perspective. This movie added such value to my life firing a time when the world stood still with so much fear and panic, it gave me an opportunity to reconnect with myself and family in such a deeply profound way.

I highly recommend that you watch this movie because it’ll totally transform your perspective in life no matter how much you May feel that you May already know.

HOW thoughts BECOME things… notice the two words that are capitalized. Douglas Vermeeren explained this in a way to really grasp the entire concept of the film. It is the HOW and BECOME that are the key focus. It is truly exciting when one can master their present thoughts and comprehend HOW your thoughts ultimately manifest or create what you BECOME. Through continuous repetition of the concepts and learning more from those whom have mastered the art of thought creation, I have been able to reshape, or as they say in the movie, reprogram my brain, to put me on the right path to attain everything that I want from life. Really understanding how my conscious and subconscious thoughts are creating my reality has been a great awakening for me, and I can’t wait to learn more and share this with the rest of the world! — Kristi Maggio (Radio & TV Host of What’s Up Punta Cana!)

The film was inspirational and insightful and made me realize want you can achieve with just the power of Thought.This film will when watched will release endless possibilities to improve you and your business.

I highly recommend it 5–5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟- Mark Antony Raines, Ghostman Radio Station

I had the opportunity to view Doug Vermeeren’s latest film where he uncovers secrets from some of the world’s top achievers. Doug recognized the things that we can learn from others that can change our lives. We all are programmed by what we read and experience, so it is critical to surround ourselves with people and ideas that help us strive to reach our full potential. These and other valuable lessons can be gleaned by the film.

— Dr. Diane Hamilton, CEO at Tonerra, Creator of the Curiosity Code Index, Nationally Syndicated Radio Show Host — Take the Lead with Dr. Diane Hamilton

“Before watching How Thoughts Become Things, I thought why am I watching this as I have been studying this stuff for like forever? I found out quickly this movie is like no other movie ever produced in evoking deeper consideration of truly how your thoughts become things. Every single speaker gave me insights into how to sharpen my focus for manifestation and what is really happening when thoughts become things in a way that never has been taught to me in my over 20 years in metaphysics. Doug is a master of capturing the best information to support others and making it much more useful for anyone willing to employ these teachings!!” — Daniel John Hanneman — Host of Spiritual Rockstar Podcast Show

“How Thoughts Become Things is different. This is a Must See EXPERIENCE. It is truly transformative and a major benefit to every one who utilizes, internalizes, and leverages these vital practices, tips, and tools. The (R(Evolution is HERE! BRAVO to Douglas and the TEAM.” – Barry Shore, The Joy of Living Institute

Is HOW THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS the NEXT Secret?

leave a comment »

How Thoughts Become Things — Is it really the next SECRET?

Lately it seems everyone, everywhere is talking about the film How Thoughts Become Things. It’s pretty much showing up everywhere just like the law of Attraction movie The Secret did from 2006 to about 2009. In fact, many people are calling How Thoughts Become Things a sequel to the film The Secret — but is it?

As the director and producer of the film I thought it was important to set the record straight. This is an easy question to answer: NO IT IS NOT THE SEQUEL TO THE SECRET.

But having said that there are some things that unmistakably connect those on a journey of self discovery to both films.

Let’s look at the similarites and differences.

Similarities:

Many of the cast from the original film The Secret make an appearance in How Thoughts Become Things to further expand on the knowledge they shared in the previous film. Some of the thought leaders that have appeared in both films include (Sorry the images are not all sized properly — I snuck them off the net):

Bob Proctor

Denis Waitley

Denis Wailtey in HOW THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS 2020

Joe Vitale

Marie Diamond

Bob Doyle

Bob Doyle in The Secret circa 2006

The other similarities are simply that both films talk about the Law of Attraction and the power of thoughts. Other than that there really aren’t that many similarities.

THE SECRET

The Secret introduced the world to a concept called the Law of Attraction. The premise is that universe responds to the frequencies which create our reality. You have control over those frequencies through your thoughts and feelings.

HOW THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS

How Thoughts Become Things goes deeper into the idea that our thoughts create our reality. This film focuses less on the Law of Attraction and explores concepts like your programming, overcoming negative thought, the role of emotion, how habits are created, overcoming fear and the process by which thoughts manifest themselves in reality.

Your Highest Value Skill is NOT sales

Your Highest Value Skill is NOT Sales.

Some business gurus are telling people that they need to develop their Highest Value or most valuable skills.That part is right! You need to focus on the skill that will give you the highest return on your efforts.

What they got wrong is that they are teaching that it is sales. Sales is important, but its not the first step.

Your network is. You can’t sell unless you have someone to sell to. And the level of your network will determine the level of the people who you get to sell to. Lastly I would also suggest that sales is not the most valuable thing your network could offer you either. You will find that networking to sell is the weakest kind of networking. Instead network to find more valuable things. Most of the time in life and business your highest value skills and assets are things that will give you long term returns not a short term sale or commission.

Here are 4 to think about:

1) Support and resources 

Who in your network can help yu with the things you need to grow your business. This can be education and mentorship, financial support, help implementing systems or even introductions to other people. There is truth to the russian proverb which states, “It is better to have a 100 friends than 1000 rubles.”

2)Opportunities 

Most of the big opportunities in my life have come through other people. Some of these opportunities have been to attend or speak at big events, become involved in excellent investment opportunities or attend high level events or meet celebrities. Recently one of my contacts in the UK invited me to have tea at Kensington Palace with the Royals and attend ASCOT. Your best opportunities in life will come through those you know.

3)Team members or business systems

At high level networking events it is not uncommon to meet people with specialized skillset who are very successful at what they do. These opportunities are fantastic occasions to find people, services or systems that you can use to strengthen your own business.

4) Customers (but not in the way you think) 

Low level networkers look for single individual customers — you need to look for people to collaborate with that have large groups of your customers.)

Again sales is an important skill, but it isn’t the one that will create the most wealth or success for you. The skill you need to develop is your ability to build a higher level network.

Hope this is helpful.

Too often people want short cuts. They want their success to be recognized and rewarded immediately. What they fail to understand is that faking it until you make it always gets found out and it actually prevents your success rather than creates it. People know when you’re faking it. When you do the work in private before you proclaim your proficiency you are respected and rewarded. Those who matter most to your success immediately recognize those who have done the work to be qualified. And while a good marketer may have temporary success they never have the staying power that a true business or individual of value possess. #douglasvermeeren #entrepreneurofinfluence #privatepreparation#prepare #power #success #fakeit #fakerich #businesscoach

Does your Business Coach Suck? – Entrepreneur of Influence, Douglas Vermeeren

Does your business coach suck? Entrepreneur of Influence

By Douglas Vermeeren

Online-personal-business-one-to-one-coaching

It seems that everywhere you look someone is calling themselves a coach or consultant. But with so many choices how do I know who can best help my business? Before you ask a business coach or consultant if they can help you it’s important to understand who you really are.

Let me share what I mean: I don’t help business owners. I help entrepreneurs. Most business owners don’t know the difference and so therefore they are getting the wrong people helping them.  Many entrepreneurs don’t know the difference either and that’s why they are upset when they have an experience with a business. Business coaches can’t help entrepreneurs.

The real challenge is that traditional business is not the same as entrepreneurship. Let’s share some differences: (Neither of these are in any particular order)

Traditional Businesses

  • Typically use traditional methods to generate business
  • Typical set up as a brick & Mortar location
  • Are biased towards real world connections, marketing and relationships versus online
  • Often have employees
  • They often have restrictive business rules
  • Often there is higher regulation
  • Higher bar and cost of entry
  • Slower to change and adapt
  • Focused on long term strategy and wealth development
  • They often provide or create the asset or service they sell themselves
  • They are held back by geographical boundaries
  • Their growth is measured through structure (ie. Number of locations or number of staff)
  • Organization and structure is the fundamental skill
  • They operate according to business hours
  • Most are not concerned about their passion and purpose during business hours
  • They do their best efforts in marketing (typically a shotgun approach and within their community)
  • Generally maintains normal business hours
  • As a business owner they are more of an operator than an entrepreneur
  • Customers found through traditional marketing, direct mail, in-person networking, sharing of business cards
  • Often tries to develop alone
  • Learning is to keep pace with marketplace (Versus an entrepreneur who learns to set the pace)
  • Most businesses are concerned about a local or regional market

 

Even just by looking at some of the things above you can imagine what most business coaches are equipped to teach you. They are fantastic and effective at sharing strategies and systems that thrive under these circumstances.

Let’s take moment to look at the entrepreneur.

Modern Entrepreneurs

  • Fast and skinny (what I mean by this is that they are Fast: flexible and can make things happen much faster than tradition business. Skinny: They don’t have a high overhead of cost and they can shift fast without a lot of retooling or effort.)
  • They typical use technology in more effective ways
  • They have fewer rules that are more flexible
  • Often there is less regulation
  • Lower bar of entry
  • More adaptable to ideas and change
  • Able to take advantage of shorter term payoffs
  • Does not have normal business hours
  • Marketing is directly focused and little is wasted
  • Understands the power of systems and delegation
  • Mobile
  • Entrepreneurs understand the importance of virtual assistances, remote teams, work for hire or creative employment agreements
  • Entrepreneurs understand how to create Joint Ventures, Affiliate partners and strategic alliances
  • Growth through systems rather than structure
  • Sales is an essential skill (versus business where if you take out a big enough ad in the yellow pages or elsewhere people may come to your location -sales skills secondary)
  • Entrepreneurs understand the power of attraction marketing and influence selling
  • Entrepreneurs thrive on their passion and purpose daily
  • Most entrepreneurs don’t have business cards (they use social media)
  • Vision led
  • Very connected to other entrepreneurs (more likely to connect to peers for support, advice or learning)
  • Seeking out and engaging in trends
  • Entrepreneurs understand the power of positioning and influence
  • Entrepreneurs seek a global reach and are minimally concerned about local or regional markets
  • Entrepreneurs understand the power of collaboration
  • Entrepreneurs understand the power of leverage
  • Entrepreneurs understand the importance of community
  • Entrepreneurs define scaling and grow by the number of transactions they create not by the size of their structure

A simple glance over these two lists reveals several important differences between an entrepreneur and a traditional business owner.

As stated earlier most business coaches int he marketplace today are wonderful at supporting people in the traditional business model. They understand, often through their own experience how business unfolds. The big challenge with this however is that they expect your business to unfold in the same way.

Traditional businesses are barely sustainable in the current marketplace, but they do not thrive. Traditional business in todays marketplace are always in a constant uphill battle for marketshare against those who are operating by the entrepreneur rules.

Before you choose someone to mentor, coach or consult your business it is essential you understand where they would like to take you.  A recent survey conducted by Entrepreneur Magazine revealed that a staggering 87.8% of business coaches in the marketplace were teaching and sharing outdated strategies and were able to produce only marginal growth. The same research also determined that many business programs offered through schools and universities performed only slightly better at 71.2%.

The programs that utilizes the support of other entrepreneurs and peer learning had a success rate that generated significant positive outcomes in relation to the investment required. Moral of the story: Make sure you know what support your re actually seeking and then confirm that the one seeking to help you is qualify to do so.

You’ve heard that you earn to the level you learn. While this is true it’s incomplete. Not only are you required to learn, but you must implement and grow. You must become better than you’ve ever been before in order to receive benefits that you’ve never experienced.

One of the most powerful things that you must become is a master delegator. This principle multiplies your ability to expand. You must learn to learn from others and also use their talents, skillsets, knowledge, networks and resources. The strongest businesses are built by those who understand that expansion comes through collaboration and implementation.

How customers feel about your brand is just as important as the product they purchase. However most entrepreneurs don’t spend a lot of time thinking about, planning and creating more powerful touch points during their interactions with others.

My challenge to you today is to take some time and think more about the touch points you create with your clients.

Finding a mentor – Entrepreneur of Influence,

By Douglas Vermeeren

I frequently get the question How did I get access to more than 400 of the top business leaders and achievers? How was it that they agreed to meet with me? How was it that I was able to get them to teach at the Entrepreneur Business School?

I have indeed been blessed to have these high level leaders teahc me and my students. But it wasn’t by accident.

Most people think that you simply choose your mentors and they will happily teach you what they know. While many mentors are prepared to help they also choose who they want to help. They don’t want to give their experience and power to those who will do nothing. Or even worse to those who will create a mess. They want to be proud of the additional successes they create. Mentors look for those who they can help and be proud of. You’ve also heard that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. If you aren’t happy with the mentors who are appearing in your life you might want to take a look at how you are conducting your life.

Resources follow resourcefulness

leave a comment »

65243565_2712210352141150_1527187213933084672_o

Many entrepreneurs struggle because they focus on their resources. They talk about the things that they like whether it be time, money, knowledge, support, connections or whatever else they feel like they are missing. This focus on what they lack paralyzes them. If you look at successful entrepreneurs very rarely do they spend much time thinking about what’s missing. They dedicate their thoughts to what is and what they can do. As I studied more than 400 of the worlds top business leaders another important question that they always asked was not how will I do it, but who will help me. All of the resources that you need exist somewhere and in the hands of someone. The best question to ask when you are lacking something is who can help me that already has this? That question is a demonstration of resourcefulness. Resourcefulness always proceeds resources. Resourcefulness always has solutions. #DouglasVermeeren #Entrepreneur #EntrepreneurOfInfluence #BusinessSkills #BusinessMindset #BusinessTips #EntrepreneurTips #Entrepreneur #Entrepreneur #EntrepreneurLifestyle #Number1BusinessCoach #TopBusinessTrainer #BusinessConsulting #BusinessCoach
