10 Great thoughts on money from Douglas Vermeeren

  1. Millionaire in 2011

    Millionaire in 2017

     

1.Do you have a plan on how you will create more abundance in your life? Most people do not. In other words they are expecting wealth, abundance and prosperity to all happen by accident.

 

2. You can’t create what you don’t identify. Get specific on what your financial goals are.

3. Money is not logic. If you try to make money using only logic you will fail. Money comes through exchange. And that is based in emotion. People buy emotionally and they back it up logically.

4. Broke people wait for others to help them. Wealthy people bet on themselves.

5. Money has no opinion, emotions or motives. It gets it’s meaning from the meaning we give it.

6. Income is not an accident. Income follows the systems and strategies you set up in your life. Most people are broke because they’ve never built these things.

7. Fear is the most powerful emotion and keeps most people from ever experiencing wealth, abundance and prosperity.

8. If you are having trouble shifting your money mindset and your prosperity habits make a commitment to start by doing one small thing everyday. Your habits will build as you begin to experience results.

9. Begin by being part of the money conversation. Read books about growing money, watch videos about wealth building strategies, follow the markets, read articles on real estate, attend investment seminars, talk to your banker. All these things put money on your awareness and it needs to be there first before it arrives in real life.

10. Money follows habit.

When A Terrible Day Strikes – Bam#5

When a terrible day strikes – BAM # 5
By Douglas Vermeeren

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.

But the truth of the matter is that not all days are like that no matter how hard you try and how positive your outlook. Sometimes life is just hard and things seem to go completely wrong. These are all part of our existence as humans.

A bad day does not mean you have a bad life.

So how can a person continue to be positive and seek an awesome life when things hit the fan so to speak? These challenging days will be something that everyone faces from time to time so here are three suggestions on what to do to stay on track with an Awesome when these moments strike.

Have correct expectations – The greatest reason for negative human emotions like anger, hurt, frustration and pain all stem from unmet expectations. In other words, you expected a certain result from a situation and you were disappointed that the outcome did not match those expectations. Think about the last time you were upset with your spouse or a close friend. It will be because you had a specific expectation that they would act a certain way and they did not. Your expectations were not met and you became frustrated, angry or hurt. (We will talk more about expectations in a later article, because I do believe it is important to have expectations and people often rise to what is expected of them. But for today’s article I simply want to share that it with a correct expectation that occasionally things and people will disappoint we can be better equipped to deal with them when they appear.) The beginning of getting through a terrible day is to have a correct expectation that they will occur. The next step of this process is now that you expect that they will show up from time to time is to identify the terrible day for what it is when it arrives…

Identify the terrible day for what it is – So you expected that occasionally there will be tough days and here one shows up. You have identified it. When you recognize something for what it is you gain power over it. Awareness is a massive key to unlocking awesomeness in life. The instant you can identify a challenging day is also the moment you can remember that negative days are temporary. You can also instantly recognize that you are in the circumstance but you are not the circumstance. Once you recognize that the situation will pass and that it is not your identity you can evaluate whether you need to provide solutions or simply let it pass. Many problems will just pass if you give them the needed time to do so. However the majority of problems will require some efforts from you to help them move out of your life. That brings us to the final point….

Move forward and create awesome. Forward motion and moment generally break through most negative funks or situations. It is near impossible for the power of positive and the anchors of negativity to exist in the same moment. I want to be clear that I’m not just saying think positive and everything will change. While that’s a good start positive thinking is only a starting point. for example, if you don’t have the rent money just thinking it will be okay won’t make it so. You need to add positive actions and solutions to positive thinking. As you get moving you will experience a state change as well which will immediately change your thinking and situation. All situations can be improved upon by generating forward motion. Often when negativity strikes people shut down and accept the negative fate. There is always something that can be done.

Not too long ago I had a very negative experience that left me with a bill of nearly $390,000. Naturally the day I discovered this was a terrible day. Some of this debt arose from something that wasn’t even my fault. At first I felt the paralyzing despair that everyone feels when faced with something that seems truly overwhelming, frustrating and difficult. I had bruised expectations of the way something should have happened – yet it did not.

Recognizing that there was nothing I could do in my frustrated state I decided to identify the situation for what it was. I knew this was a circumstance I had to deal with. I knew could get through this with time. I also knew that although I had contributed to this situation it was not a reflection of who I was. Even though I had helped to create an awful situation I was still capable of creating awesome too. I determined I would get through it.

I determined to move forward by exploring solutions that would get me through this situation and allow me to get back on track with creating more awesome. Naturally as I looked for solutions I found several ways to immediately make the situation more better and more manageable. I recognized payment options I could make to clear this obligation. I thought about additional business activities I could engage in that would provide for the debt. I thought about friends I could enlist to help me by letting me sell their services. I thought about talents, assets or gifts I had that I could utilize. Solutions began to appear.

As a result I actually developed a new opportunity within my business. This would never had appeared without the terrible day pushing me for solutions. Often solutions only appear out of necessity. This was a blessing in disguise.

In conclusion, don’t let a terrible day destroy your hopes and efforts for an awesome life. All terrible situations are temporary. If you have a committed and focused effort at making your life better your life will continue to follow the direction you have build for it.

P.S. – One last thought that I think is the most powerful way to shift out a negative situation is to find someone to serve. When you do something for others that helps them it allows you to escape the negative energy of your own problem. Often it is in the midst of this serving that your best ideas for solving your own problems shows up. That’s actually what happened to me in the above the example.

The Treasure Map Movie unfolds the secrets of wealth

leave a comment »

You may have seen the hit film The Secret or the follow up films produced by Douglas Vermeeren, The Opus and The Gratitude Experiment. But you’ve never seen anything like this. This is the first film dedicated exclusively to teaching about wealth and abundance. “Money is not the root of all evil. It’s actually the seed that let’s you accomplish your dreams,” Revealed director and producer Vermeeren, “Money is the ingredient that closes or opens doors to how far you can achieve what you really want in life.”

While he goes on to suggest that money should not be worshipped or put in the place of family or other high priority items he and his speakers from the film suggest that money allows everything worthwhile and worthy to be more in your life. “Money gives you the freedom to make better choices.” Is a reoccurring theme from the movie.

The Treasure Map

The Treasure Map

The film features John Demartini (The Secret) Loral Langemeier (The Secret), Raymond Aaron, Marshall Sylver, Randy Gage, Stefan Aarnio, Darren Jacklin and Vermeeren. Each of them share insights and strategies on why you should become wealthy and how to do it. The film is one of the more practical approaches available today and is sure to get you thinking differently about your money situation.

If you are looking to escape the prison of debt and financial challenge in todays economy this film should definitely be on your list of MUST SEE movies this year.

1 simple step that will put you on the road to financial freedom

What does your financial freedom look like to you?

I often ask this question at my seminars and the responses I get are often as follows:

“I’d like spend more time on vacation.”

“I’d like to live in the house of my dreams and drive the vehicle of my choice.”

“I’d like to quit my job and spend more time with family.”

Although these answers are nice – they are not correct.

Financial freedom is not about what experiences you will have and how you think you will spend your day to day life.

Financial freedom is an exact number. How much exactly do you need to meet your obligations each month.

When you passively achieve the exact amount of income you need so that all your obligations and expenses are met you are financially free. Does this make sense? That monthly amount is your obligation or prison. So once you have attained it passively it’s no longer your prison. It’s satisfied without you.

The problem for most people is that they can tell you what they want (The experience) but they can’t tell you what it takes to make it happen.(The exact number) If your goals are specific and clear they are attainable and near. So if you want to be financially free how much money exactly do you need to have coming in passively each month.

Here’s an example:

If your monthly bills are as follows: (I know this is not a reflection of most peoples bills. But its an oversimplified example)

Mortgage $1250

Utilities $239

Groceries $250

Car payment $249

Gas $100

Total monthly Commitment: $2,088

So your financial freedom is actually $2,088. If you can build a passive income stream that replaces whatever you a re doing to get to $2,088 then you have achieved your financial freedom.

Naturally this is oversimplified. And of course, your financial freedom number will change based on your needs and situation. Once you have achieved a passive income that covers your necessary obligations you are financially free. The next step is to move onwards up to financial abundance which is something that is rarely discussed. Financial freedom is important – but financial abundance is where life really begins to change.

More on this later…

By the way, knowing your financial freedom number is just the beginning. Knowing how to get there is where things really get interesting. If you’d like to come out to one of our events near you go to http://www.MillionaireTrainingSystems.com

Most people are currently at the level of Financial Insecurity, which means that they have must work every single day to make the money they need and even then things are relatively tight. How would you like to learn what a handful of billionaires and many multi-millioniares taught me personally about creating financial abundance? (Which by the way is different than Financial Freedom.) Do you think those lessons would make a difference for you? THEY DID FOR ME. If you are interested I will be in Vancouver for one day only in July teaching it. call 1-877-393-9496 to find out how you can be there. We have 19/25 spots left.
