The 4 pillars of reaching any goal

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal
By Douglas Vermeeren

th-1

I am a firm believer that a goal that is well articulated is the first and most important step to achieving your goals. In fact, a mantra often repeated at my seminars is that, “a goal that is specific and clear, becomes attainable and near.” However after conducted extensive interviews and research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers the description is not only the first step. It’s also where most people stop.

My research has determined that in order for a goal to be achieved there are 4 other essential factors that must be included with the description in order to make it achievable.

Naturally I am assuming that you are already committed to the goal and your reasons why you want that goal are big enough for you personally. The idea that you have to be it before can have it is also true. But I don’t believe you have to be it in order to start going after it. What you will become will take place during the pursuit of the goal. Perfectionists need not apply.

So here are the four things that I have seen consistently repeated among top achievers when they set and achieve their goals. (And naturally I see people struggle all the time when they are missing one of these things.) Consider these four elements like legs on a table. Without all four the table isn’t able to stand properly.

1)Strategies & techniques
All goals require you to learn and employ techniques and strategies that are specific to that goal. You will need to gain that specialized knowledge and skill set that will enable you to effective accomplish the goal.

thOne of my original success interviews was former NHL player and Hockey Night in Canada TV host Kelly Hrudey. When Kelly was a boy he was discouraged because he was not that great of a hockey player. He wanted to measure up to the others so bad that he dedicated hours and hours of practice to learn the art of goaltending. As a boy these skills did not come easy but after years of practice and practice he began to surpass the others around him. Getting to playing professional hockey is very competitive. The Huffington post did a study on how hard it is to make it into the NHL. They found that only 0.16 of the hockey players who had NHL dreams ever made it into the league and only 0.02 percent will ever be able to make a career out of Hockey.

kellyhrudeyKelly gained the skills to the level that not only did he get drafted into the NHL but he played for several teams, the New york Islanders, the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks. He learned the game so well that he is now a TV commentator on Sportsnet.

It’s not enough to just have the dream or even the belief that you can achieve your goal. You must gain the skills too.

2) Effort
All goals require new habits and a rearranging of priorities. If it was something that was already part of your everyday life you would have accomplished it already. One of the challenges most people experience when pursuing a major goal is that they are often surprised at the amount of hard work or effort. The hours can be long and the investment of effort, resources and even money can be extensive.

Recently I met with a new realtor who had set a goal to become on of the top agents in his city. As he studied those in his area who were consider the top agents he was immediately startled at the hourly commitments that these individuals were putting into their business. He was also astonished at how much they invested in marketing. Determined to reach his goal to be among them he began to move forward with the same fierceness. While he is not yet considered the top in his town he is definitely on his way there. Recognize that effort will be required and if you want to rise above everybody else you have got to be willing to do more than anyone else.

3) Perseverance
Even if you gain the skills and put in effort getting to most high level goals require perseverance over time. Perseverance however means more than just continuing and putting in your time. It also means hanging in there when things get difficult and maybe even appear hopeless. Everyone has heard the story of all the challenges that Edison had working with the lightbulb. It is said that he failed more than 10,000 times before he found a way to stabilize the filament. While that may or may not have been the case there are countless examples of obstacles that all top achievers have experienced.

These challenges are not just experienced by those in our history books. Challenges will always be present when you are stretching to reach new endeavors. You may experience personal learning curves you as you struggle to apply new ideas and concepts. You may experience moments of doubt that come through your own feelings or from those close to you. You may experience resistance from customers who are unsure of your offering. You may even experience conflict with competition as they try to keep you out of their business. All of these obstacles and more will try you to the core to see how bad you really want what your trying for.

Morris-GoodmanSeveral courageous people come to my mind when it comes to perseverance. One that is worth mentioning here is my friend Morris Goodman. Some of you may have seen him in the hit movie The Secret or my film The Opus. Morris had been a successful insurance broker and decides to buy himself a small airplane. One his very first solo flight he had a power failure and crashes the plane into some power lines. As a result of the accident he broke his neck and crushed his spinal cord. He immediately lost all ability to perform every single bodily function except blinking his eyes. The doctors doubted that he would even survive…but somehow he did.

Through a code of blinking and using a chart to identify letters on a chart Morris spelled out that he would walk again. The doctors doubted it would ever happen. He then surprised them even further by saying he would walk again by Christmas. No only did the doctors doubt but they even suggested he was dilusional.

This is where the lesson in perseverance appears. Morris began little by little to work on whatever muscles he could get to respond. There were days it was painful. There were days when it appeared that no progress occurred. There were discouraging days when he felt like quitting. But he didn’t. Overtime muscles began to respond and remember. He worked and worked hard. He never gave up.

Then came Christmas and although he wasn’t fully walking Morris did walk those steps out the front door of the hospital as promised. Today he still struggles and things aren’t back to normal. they probably never will be. But he continues to persevere he is still setting and achieving goals today.

4) Support
The things that I find most people seem to forget in trying to achieve their goals is that they are never alone. Mount Everest has never been climbed by a single individual without a team and the same is true of big goals in real life. All major and massive things require support. It is important when you set out to achieve your biggest goals that you also recognize that support and help is available to you too. And the amazing thing is that this help is far more accessible than most people believe.

The first step to acquiring help to get to your goals comes from being extremely clear about your mission and what you a re trying to achieve. If you know how to articulate your mission clearly and sustinctly you can ask for help from others in a way that they can say yes.

In my own personal life I have been consistently surprised at how many people are willing to help you solve problems and get to your goals. When I created my first film The Opus there were many new challenges to overcome. many people thought that I had bit off far more than I could chew. Especially when I expressed who I wanted involved and the scope of the project. But there were those that believed in me and my mission. I’ll never forget specifically how supportive Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen were when it came to shooting the film. They made themselves very available in the midst of a busy conference. Joe Vitale wrote amazing blogs posts promoting the film and sent out notices through his network. Marci Shimoff came and spoke for us at our premiere launch and helped get the word out. John Demartini has promoted the film actively around the world and has since appeared in two other of my films. There were so many others that helped as well that I wish I could name. But as I think back about how the help was able to arrive it was all connected to my ability to articulate when support I needed.

Great things are always built by synergy rather than selfishness. Too often those who fail to get to their goals fail because they are trying to hang onto all the praise, money, opportunity or power. There is truth to the old saying that says it’s amazing what can be accomplished when we don’t care who gets the credit.

No matter what your goals are the above 4 pillars will help you. Consider them carefully and explore how you can implement them more directly in your pursuit of your goal and you will achieve success.

Douglas Vermeeren – Conclusion of “The Monthly Millionaire Mentor Program” and New course announced: Achievement Accelerated

leave a comment »

This will be kind of a casual post/rant, but I still hope it will still be of value to you the reader. For several years I have been teaching wealth related courses and strategies. I’ve seen a lot of success with those programs and so have my students. But I always felt something was missing. You see although I love to teach that subject, to me it was a bit one dimensional.  The reason why is that perhaps most of the courses I taught were focused around money or at least that was the dominating theme. I apologize if that’s an impression I left people with. Because wealth is about so much more! Maybe the term I should have been using was abundance. The abundant life is really the objective. Success isn’t just money. It’s about abundance in all areas of life. For Example, Better relationships, more freedom, more ability to explore, more time to learn, more opportunity to give back, more opportunity to be there for others and more opportunity to just be alive.

It is for this reason that I am announcing the conclusion of  The Monthly Millionaire Mentor Program. We will complete all obligations and programs that have already commenced, but we will be taking on no new clients nor introducing no new ‘investment’ or ‘financial’ opportunities through that program. Effective immediately.

Instead I have decided to return to my passion. This is really where I got started and where I find the most excitement. I have always been excited about the stuff I alluded to in the beginning. Just creating MORE out of life. When I started this work of personal development nearly ten years ago I started because I was in awe of what I could do as a human being. There appeared to be no limits. I became fascinated by what I also saw others do and I set a goal to learn what they knew and then bring it into my own life. I soon found that to become like them I needed to cultivate the ability to also share what I was learning. And the more I shared the better I learned it personally. In the beginning it became my mission to help other achieve success and achieve their goals. Through the years that vision became narrowed to just money and wealth as I expressed earlier, but now I feel like it’s time to return to the roots of where I started.

With this objective in mind over the last few weeks I have been designing what I feel would be the most effective course for helping to create Maximum results in a person’s life. In other words, what were the tools I used to create my abundance, wealth and opportunities in all aspects of my life. The results that I have experienced did not happen by accident. the results in the lives of the top achievers I have researched did not happen by accident. There is a formula.

I feel that this program which will replace all of my other programs is in my opinion the best program I have ever seen on achievement. I have taken all of the best materials and lessons that I have found over the years and I have only taken the very best and most effective tools. This is a program that works. I will be introducing it to the world on March 21, 2013 at the Grant MacEwan student conference. I hope it is well received.

I am excited. I am pumped. I think it will be the most exciting thing I have done to date! Soon I will post some additional information about it, but if you are interested to know how you can be involved please contact me at doug@douglasvermeeren.com I will require several support coaches also, so if this kind of work interests you please reach out to me and I can fill you in. And naturally if you have results you’d like to improve in any area of your life please take a careful look at this program. I can assure you that you’ve seen nothing like this. This program has literally been 10 years in the making and it will give you exactly what you need to be highly successful.

And by the way I am calling it ACHIEVEMENT – ACCELERATED!!!!

Thanks for reading,

Doug
