Douglas Vermeeren – Are you Proactive?

Are you Proactive? What difference does it make?

By Douglas Vermeeren

Douglas Vermeeren ppm 22#DouglasVermeeren #dougvermeeren #personalPowerMastery

 

Being proactive or taking responsibility for your actions and choices is the first step towards creating any success in real life. If we avoid responsibility or choose to be reactive to what’s going on around us we actually give away our power. As we give away our power we also lose our ability to create outcomes that are important to us.

When we live in a reactive mode we become paralyzed and our world shrinks. We give up the right make choices as we by default give this power to others.

You can recognize a reactive person by the behaviours and language. Their actions often appear as follows:

They are easily offended

They blame others

They are often highly emotional (Super Highs and Super Lows)

They get angry easily and often

They say hurtful things

They criticize and judge others

They complain

They wait for things to happen

Find themselves often engaged in drama

Change only when they must

Unwilling to learn or follow

They are often financially broke

Paralyzed when problems appear

Always late

Disorganized

Use contention and intimidation as a tool

Don’t own their mistakes

 

The language they use is often as follows:

I have to

They made me

I must

I can’t

I don’t have the time, monte, opportunity, friends, resources etc.

It happened because of X

Because of these approaches reactive people always find their world shrinking. A shrinking universe is connected to diminishing opportunity and scarcity. You can never have abundance on any level in a setting where scarcity is nurtured.

The good news is that people are neither 100% proactive or reactive. We are all somewhere along a continuum. You are reactive some of the time and proactive some of the time. My encouragement to you is to identify areas where you are reactive and seek for improvement. Even a small degree of improvement will begin to open up more opportunities for choice. More choices simply equals more happiness and success. You’ll also find that taking responsibility sooner and more fully decreases the amount of negative stress in your life. When we take responsibility even for the things we don’t like in our life we immediately gain the power to change those things. You can only change what you choose to own.

By Douglas Vermeeren

I travel around the globe and have had the chance to discuss the rules of awesome with people everywhere striving to be more awesome. As I have I have found a common concern among these people in my interviews on the streets of major cities and rural communities. I have seen the same common concern appear in the classroom among the youth. I have heard the same concern voiced among those who enter my seminar rooms.

Overall perhaps this has been the most common issue that keeps people from living an awesome life.

My definition of an awesome life is as follows: An Awesome life is living your life by decision. You are where you want to be, doing the things that excite you, inspire you and bring out the best in you and in those around you.

The most common feeling that keeps people from living an awesome life are feeling of unworthiness.

Unworthiness is any feeling which interferes in your ability to create an inspiring life. It may come from feelings of self-doubt. It can be guilt from unresolved pain or hurt. It can stem from mean things others have said. It can come from a series of experienced that leave you feeling incapable.

Whatever the source of these feelings of unworthiness they are all lies. The state of unworthiness does not exist.

Each being born on the planet is a being of infinite worth. Although we may make mistakes or may find ourselves on the receiving end of negative people, circumstances or events those situations do not define us.

One of the most amazing abilities that humans have is that we have the ability to make choices. Each choice is an opportunity to create a new future. The ability to make a choice is not based on how successful a person has been in the past or determined by the value another may assign to you. Choices are available to all and as such all are worthy to make the choice for awesome.

Often at my seminars I find individuals who struggle with the idea that they are worthy to create the life they desire. The boldness required to move forward with an awesome life begins with belief. In moments where this boldness is required it is not uncommon for doubt and worthiness issues to strike a defeating blow. Overcoming these feelings is not an immediate or quick fix.

I often compare this experience like holding a cube of ice in your hand while it melts. It is not comfortable, but to make it go away (meaning the ice) you have to keep hanging on. As you begin to experience the tiniest glimpses of awesome your faith in your worthiness will grow.

Get started working on yourself now and when the doubts appear keep going. Don’t listen the negative voices that will try to sabotage you and steer you off your true path. As those voices rise from a whisper to a shout have strategies in place that can remind you that the negativity will pass and you need to keep going. A few of the strategies that I think work well are having a vision board, listening to a special motivational song, surrounding yourself by inspiring people and engaging in physical exercise. However, I have found one quick solution that also builds feelings of worth quicker than any other method. And that is service.

As you serve others your sense of worth explodes. You can’t feel bad for yourself while lifting others. It becomes even more powerful as you select someone to serve that can’t possibly repay you.

In conclusion I want to reaffirm that you are worthy to be awesome. Your past may be a reference point but it is not your destination. Go forward recognizing that you can repair any kind of past. You can rise above any haters and detractors. And negative situations are temporary. No mistake is permanent. There will be tough days ahead. But stay the course and cling to the moments of awesome when they appear. When you seek awesome it clings to you.
