Your Will-power starts with your Why-Power! Personal Power Mastery

Your Will-power starts with your Why-Power! Personal Power Mastery
By Douglas Vermeeren, Personal Power Mastery

Douglas Vermeeren – Personal Power Mastery Success quote

Too often I have people that attend my seminars ask about the idea of motivation. Most of their questions and comments revolve around the challenge that have experienced in the past about not being able to stay motivated. They often share how they’ve thought out their goals and they really know what they want. They even confess that the things they have set goals around really are going to serve them best in the long run. They stress in their explanation that they are bewildered by how they just can’t follow the logical plans that were so well-laid.

The challenge does not rest in their desires or even their well-laid plans. The challenge lies in how our brain actually chooses the activities it will support. Without getting into a long explanation this particular post actually addresses a few of the various “powers” we discuss in Personal Power Mastery. I could have easily positioned this topic with The Power of Focus, The Power of Momentum, The Power of Thought, The Power of Values and others. Today I’m going to position this article and solution that I want to discuss squarely on The Power of Values.

To get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible I’m simple going to share that our actions and motivation only coincidences with our highest values. In other words, we give our attention to the things that are most valuable to us. And by the way that is with every activity through out every moment of the day.

Let me share an example from the lives of one of my students. (But it might as well be my life as I am sometimes guilty of the same thing) One of my students Shane works at home. He is a home based entrepreneur. He has three small children who are now in school but are at home during the summer. Shane loves his business which is web design and social media marketing. However his highest value is his family and especially spending time with his wife and children and seeing them happy.

Recently Shane was telling me about a day at home during the summer. He had a lot of work to do and several clients counting on him with a handful of projects. Just as he was getting started his wife and kids appeared on the scene and pointed out the beautiful sunny day outside. Shane’s highest values are his family and so his attention shifted there.

Within a few moments plans were made to go to the zoo for day. Obviously Shane’s highest value caused him to stop working and he went with the family to the zoo. Thankfully after the kids went to bed Shane was able to catch up on his work.

Thankfully this was a happy ending but for too many people it is not. They are constantly placing their real value on immediate gratification, the current netflix series or even taking a nap. This misplacement of activity is the primary reason most people never accomplish their goals and dreams.

But how do you stay motivated with what matter most to you in the long term? How do you stay focused on the goals that you know will give you best rewards? How do you do what you logically know you should do and keep recommitting to do?

The first thing to understand is the emotional part of your brain is more important than the logical part of your brain. Your brain does not seek out logical activities as the priority. It does seek to satisfy the emotional demands first because those necessities are closely tied to our survival instincts.

So if you want to create more success and stay focused with the logical goals the question really becomes how do you make the Logical more emotional?

There are several techniques that we share in the Personal Power Mastery live sessions but the one I’d like to focus on here is the seek out more important emotional reasons why the goals you’ve chosen are important to you. Why do you really want these things in your life? And the more powerful and emotionally connective your answers for why are the more power you will have to get to your goals.

As the article title infers – Your will-power with be a reflection of your why-power. if you have no reason why, when emotional disruptions appear in your day you will have no will power to stick to the task at hand.

Emotional connections to your goals and dreams help you to create boundaries that keep you on task.

Exercise for today – Consider your top tasks for the week. What do you really need to get done in order to make progress towards your really big goals? Take some time right now and come up with some strong emotional reasons why these activities need to get done.

Teaching about money in schools

leave a comment »

College-Tuition

Recently a friend of mine posted a new article on Facebook about how in his area the school system has decided to start teaching about money in the local high school. I think this is a great start as most schools don’t educate students about what ends up being one of the most important life skills that they will ever gain.

My challenge is that whenever these money courses are offer they are general taught by financial institutions or people within that system. Those advisors are trained to invite you to save, invest in specific investment instruments and follow their prescribed pattern. Most of the time people who follow this route maintain an average yet secure income.

That is one route to understanding money.

Why I want to know is why don’t they ever invite the entrepreneur mindset to come in to talk about money. This group far surpasses the institutional people in terms of personal worth and and creativity. They also see money in far different ways that the ‘save and sit on it’ crowd.

If you really want to understand the economics of society you need to invite those who are conducting transactions into the conversation. Just sayin’

Stupid Motivation quotes #3 A Master has failed more times than a beginner has even tired.

Stupid Motivational quotes #3

A Master has failed more times than a beginner has even tried…

well, duh. Obviously isn’t that what beginner means.

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.

Douglas Vermeeren ppm 27

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.
