The Importance of reading Great Books!

The importance of reading great books!
By Douglas Vermeeren

Often people ask me what’s the one single thing that they could do to elevate their mindset, inject new and effective ideas into their business and increase their ability to get to their most important goals. The answer is really simple read more great books.

As I interviewed and conducted research into more than 400 of the worlds top achievers one of the biggest common attributes among them was that they were avid readers of great books. They recognized the importance of learning and made every effort to do so. I want to clarify that it wasn’t just a matter of reading anything – they specifically chose good books that would lift them higher. As every moment of your day is precious you must also chose your reading the same way.

I need to clarify I am not against reading for entertainment. There are some amazing and brilliant stories. But the kind of reading I am talking about is what I saw first hand develop people into leaders. The sections at the bookstore that they frequent most are business, self-help, economics and biography. I have tried to do the same. What you fill your mind with most determines what you will think about most. What you think about most determines what you feel about and decide to take action on. When you fill your mind with powerful strategies you are no longer acting haphazardly to create results. You actually have strategies that work and will get you what you are looking for.

The bottom line is that if you don’t know how to do a thing you can learn it from books.

A second highly valuable side effect of reading books from the best minds available is that in a sense they become your teachers, mentors and even peers. You may heard it said that you become like those you spend time with. Each page you spend in a book with an expert gives you a deeper relationship with them. Their thoughts become synergized with yours and new results are created altogether.

In conducting my interviews with the worlds top achievers I tried to read books these individuals had written before I met them. This also gave me great insight into what I need to learn from them when we had a chance to spend face to face time in real life. Many of the success strategies they had written about in their books I was able to learn even deeper when I saw how they implemented the strategy in real life.


Books also have a power and magic that videos and audios can’t capture. The learning style of reading is altogether different than just watching a video or learning. Watching and learning have great merit as well. But in a book a reader can progress at their own pace, take notes, annotate and allow the physical written word to imprint in their mind. Studies have demonstrated that the power of recall is often more powerful with information that is read versus information that is watched or heard.


Reading also allows you to pick up the pace when learning. You can progress at whatever speed you choose and you can even jump to things that you want to learn immediately. When I first started in personal development I tried to get my hands on and red everything I could get my hands on. In the short space of three months I once read just over 100 books. That was a little over one a day. I started early in the day and read through the day every chance I got and then read into the night. It was a push to do it and I certainly don’t run at that pace now. In fact, instead of trying to get through books quickly I have actually tried the reverse. I go slow and aim not for page count but for pay understanding. Recently I even decided to read a book three times in a row before putting it back on the book shelf. Speed isn’t the goal. Comprehension and implementation is.

As I mentioned reading great books was a common attribute of all the top achievers I encountered and that fact alone should convince you to get reading more. What you learn determines what you can earn. And great books are the best place to start.

Is this Your Millionaire Experience?

Is this Your Millionaire Experience?


What is the Millionaire Experience?

By Douglas Vermeeren

The Millionaire Experience can help you live the Lifestyle that you really want!

The Millionaire Experience is the name of our new training program.  I became a self-made millionaire through applying the lessons that I learned in my research of 400  of the world’s top achievers. (This was a study similar to what Napoleon Hill did to great the book Think and Grow Rich.) Armed with these findings I was able to develop tools that have allowed me to earn high incomes in a very short period of time.

Since then I have written several books and programs sharing my information on how you can become rich- and do it quickly.

My systems are not insane or highly risky. Instead they involve simply understanding how to use a variety of systems and vehicles to create multiple streams of income. And that is what we teach in our trainings. How to think it, create it and cause it to grow.

But the Millionaire Experience is more than just teaching you how to make more money. There are lots of systems out there that teach this. (Some are better than others)

The Millionaire Experience really has to do with the way you choose to live your life.

Most people currently choose to live their life paycheck to paycheck, making everyday fit within a limited budget and seeing everything from a small financial point of view. Most people live in this situation of poverty on the outside, because they have created a poverty point of view in the their lives on the inside, in their minds. What happens first inside the mind exports itself into their circumstances in reality.

The philosophy behind The Millionaire Experience isn’t just about thinking in positive ways and expecting the changes to just happen. Instead, The Millionaire Experience is about changing everything that is holding you back financially so you can begin to create the thinking, the circumstances and outcomes in your life that will yield a millionaire income… which in turn make Millionaire opportunities and will change your current life experience, whatever it may currently be, into a Millionaire Experience.

So why is the experience important? Like I said above there are a lot of programs and systems available that can teach you how to make more money. Many of them are good. But many of them take a lot of time, involve higher levels of risk and tie up your money. With your money absent you may be building your wealth on paper, but your day to day life hasn’t changed.

I don’t know about you, but the reason I decided I wanted to create more wealth in my life was to increase the joy in my day to day life. That is the experience I wanted. That experience can only change through access to immediate cash flow. I wanted to have a better experience now, not have to wait until my senior years to enjoy life.

One of the goals of The Millionaire Experience program  is to teach you how to create the thinking, systems and opportunities that create regularly cash flow. (Daily if possible) So what’s the goal for daily cash flow? While everyone can decide that for themselves what financial freedom looks like, I invite you to consider the following:

Daily cash flow for a millionaire is $2,739.

This breaks down to about $114 per hour.

or $1.90 per minute.

One of the puzzles we work with you to solve in The Millionaire Experience is how this  cash flow level an be attained in your own life. What are the systems that you can create in your life that will open up the doors for you to bring $2,739 a day in automatic income?

How would your experience currently change if you had $2,739 as a steady source of income into your life daily? Only you can imagine that.  But as you see that in your mind you are getting a glimpse of what The Millionaire Experience is.

Does The Millionaire Experience get results? “Within Half an hour with Doug at The Millionaire experience, I went from laughing at the idea of being able to make a million dollars in a year to jumping out of my seat and racing home to start putting our ideas to work and making them a reality. Doug helped me look past my limitations that I thought I had and realize I did have the resources to make this happen. We are launching our new idea in less than a month and I can not wait to write my next testimonial about how it is working. I know this is going to be my most successful venture yet. Its a no- fail idea!!! – Aleesha Gosling, The Newsy Neighbour Magazine.
