Douglas Vermeeren – Focus on What you can DO and the results will surprise you.

leave a comment »

When we focus on what we can do we are proactive. When we focus on things we can’t do or the things we can’t change we are reactive. A reactive state or individual gives the power of choice away. It places the ability to make a situation better outside themselves. By giving this power away the individual becomes dependant on outside influences to determine their destiny.

When we focus on the things we can change none of our energy is wasted. We begin to take back our power and even the situations which we thought we had no control over will begin to change. As we start working with what we have its almost as though a magical universal power steps in to bring us what we need to get our desire met – even if those things our outside of our influence.

Recently I had an experience that illustrated this. I had a challenge to solve in my business. Much of the challenge was beyond anything I could control. I decided I would do everything in power with everything that I could within my power. A very short time later I received a phone call from someone I hadn’t talked to in months. They had an opportunity to present to me that brought solutions to several of the elements of this challenge beyond my control. It was incredible. I had not reached out to this individual or made them aware of my challenge. The Universe knew and put this person in my path with help.

Start with what you can do and the momentum and commitment of that will bring you the other pieces you need.

In addition often when we begin to confront what the elements we have control over we begin to recognize elements that we may have initially thought were out of our control that actually are in our ability to do something with. Its almost as if we can’t shine a light on these elements until we have started to work with the elements that evident and immediately before us.

In the Movie The Opus, I said “There are no such thin as problems. Everything is a puzzle and there are solutions to puzzles.” If we begin to look at problems and challenges as puzzles they become much more easy to solve.

Do you want to achieve more? How did you start your day? BAM #12
By Douglas Vermeeren

All success is a matter of habit. What you repeatedly do determines the outcomes and results you will experience. It’s as simple as that. Or is it?

Most of us know what we want. We also have desires to make our lives better. We also have relatively clear ideas of some of the immediate things that we can do better and need to improve. So what’s keeping us from implementing these elevating ideas and strategies? What’s keeping us from locking the habits of success into our daily routine?

The answer may surprise you.

All success is found in how you start your day. If you own you morning you’ll own your day.

Over the last decade I have had the opportunity to study the lives of more than 400 of the worlds top achievers. Among this group were world class athletes, top business leaders, celebrities and high powered entrepreneurs. As I looked for the elements of success I looked at things both on a macro level (meaning the big picture) but I also was very interested in thing on the micro level (meaning the tiniest of details.)

I am a firm believer that the macro is a composition of the micro and that the biggest successes are found in the smallest moments, decisions and activities. As I tried to find a common denominator among the small details there was one striking feature among all of them.

It was how they started their day. Top achievers and successful people start their day very differently than the average person. I believe this difference sets off a chain reaction that allows them to achieve not only more through out the day – but to achieve the things that add the most progress and advantage to their day as well.

Here’s a list of ten things I noticed about how they start their day.

Early riser – They begin by rising earlier than most. In the early hours of the morning they have solitude to dial into the things that are most important to them without the distractions of the day. It is interesting to notice that those who remain in bed and hit the snooze button to start their day also hold back and hesitate to get actively involved later in the day. Holding back rather than pouncing forward are a habit that starts immediately.

Self work – The top achievers that I observed started the morning by working out both their body and their mind. I recently read a report on how Barack Obama, President of the United States begins his day before any meetings with a 45 minute work out. Oprah Winfrey begins with a morning meditation. Howard Schultz of Starbucks begins the morning with a long walk with his dogs. Exercise and contemplation are both activities that put you in an empowered state for the remainder of the day.

Avoid criticism, negativity or urgency – The world around us has great power to influence us. Often the information, personalities and events we come into contact with first thing in the morning shape how we will view the rest of the day and direct the energy with which we view our circumstances. Top achievers that I observed actually do not start out the day with the news or by checking email. They set their own emotional temperature before they accept the influence of others.

Determine their highest priorities and values – Some of the top achievers I studied did this the night before as well and then reviewed it again in the morning. After taking their own time for exercise and reflection the top achievers then reviewed their day and prioritized how it would be spent. They evaluated things not in terms of creating a to do list but by evaluating what needs to be done to move them closer to their big picture goals. They often focused on what they really wanted not just stuff that needed to be completed. Most average people fill their day with habitual activities that don’t move them closer to their goals. They live their day in reaction mode rather than proactively. As a result most people spend their day putting out fires and not accomplishing the things that inspired or encouraged them. Steve Jobs was well-known for asking this question in the morning, “Would I do what I’m about to do if today was last day on earth?” He found if he answered no too often he was on the wrong path.

How we start our morning is an important part of setting out how our day will move forward. Days are what make up our life. We need to treat each day as a valuable gift. When we use these small units of time as a tool to achieve what’s most important to us we create a live that is powerful and exciting.

 

How will you start your mornings going forward? Will you change the routines and habits that you currently have? If you do you’ll find that everything will change. So what are you waiting for? Get started!
