Douglas Vermeeren – Our best self gives us our best outcomes.

leave a comment »

Often the decisions we make day to day come either from habit (the decisions that we always make without thinking) or our of crisis or necessity (urgent pressing matters that need our attention.) As a result the outcomes that we experiences and the consequences they bring pretty much keep us where we have always been or put us in a state of stress. Very seldom are accidental decisions likely to create powerful outcomes for us.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 31As decisions are the important transition moment of bring our thoughts into reality it is important that the important ones be made with care. We cannot randomly approach important issues and expect that they will take us to our best results.

Within each of us is a better self. We have caught glimpses of that person from time to time. We know he or she is there and quite frankly eager to get out. When we are our best self we feel great and inspired. We know that this best self has important contributions to make to our wellbeing and the world around us.  However to have that best-self come forward requires effort. Our best self doesn’t automatically appear unless we proactively decide to allow them forward.

Most often we settle to have our average self solve problems quickly because we are Impatient.  We allow our average self to maintain relationships because its quicker. We let our average self rush through our day because they are more or less efficient and its comfortable.

While this may work occasionally it rarely gives us the life we really want and deserve.

You will soon find that getting your best self to make decisions will make your life easier and more rewarding although it requires more effort at first.

The next time you are making an important decision ask yourself am I settling with the choice my average self is making or is my best self choosing the best path?

Warning: Mos tot the time the decisions your best self would make will take more time, more effort and more commitment. But as the old saying goes it’s better to do something right the first time than to have to repeat it.

 

Douglas Vermeeren – Focus on What you can DO and the results will surprise you.

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.

Success comes from Habits – Bam #13

Success comes form habits
By Douglas Vermeeren

habits-wordle1

There are many people around us each day who have accomplished a high level of success. We sometimes see them on tv or read about them in best selling books. When we see these people it is not uncommon for us to feel a sense of awe and literally explain “wow!” Often times we may be tempted to look at these individuals and think that they are lucky or somehow endowed with some unique magical attributes that have brought success to them.

By creating this idea that there are skills unique to these individuals it gives us an escape route or rather an exit to be able to excuse ourselves from attempting and accomplishing the same levels of success. While there are certainly unique skills at a high level of success the truth is that they did not arrive in a magical way.

In addition, most of these people were just like you and I at the beginning. They just added one ingredient that made those skills stronger, better and powerful. That one ingredient is to turn the actions they knew they needed to accomplish their desired success into habit.

habit

Habit is the key to creating lasting success. We literally become what we repeatedly think about and do.

make-our-habits

But the answer is not that simple. Developing habits takes hard work, dedication, consistent effort, refining, recommitting when things don’t go well, and staying on track especially when things go right.

Developing the right habits can also be an elusive journey. Once you know what you want to develop as a success in your life how can you determine which habits you need to develop. The Chinese philosopher Confucius declared that the very best way to develop wisdom is to imitate. In modern parlance we call this modelling. If you wish to create success in a specific area you need to find role models who have accomplished success in the same area and duplicate their habits. Developing habits therefore begins with intense study to identify the habits that you will need to create the same success.

Often I encounter people who pick and choose elements of those habits that they will duplicate and other things that the decide are not needed. Maybe the things that they reject they fell are too hard or inconvenient. Maybe they feel like some of those habits will be too difficult to implement or take too much time to develop. What they experience in the end is only partial success. When you pick and choose and decide to do only that which is easy you get less than the result of your mentors.

Imagine if you wanted to be a heart surgeon and you decided to only attend half the classes. In doing so you would rob yourself of the lessons you would need from the entire experience. When developing the habits of success you cannot pick and choose. You have got to become engaged and immersed.

habits

Developing new habits is hard work. Anytime change is required the commitment that comes with those changes is massive. It requires you to literally be obsessed with the new destination. You have got to establish a strong WHY. That WHY must be bold and emotionally charged. We only stay engaged with the activities that have significant meaning to us. Especially when the going gets hard. When you have a powerful and emotionally charged why it is more likely that you will stay on track and continue to practice the habits that will lead you to success.

There is a statement attributed to Michaelangelo. He allegedly said to someone complimenting him as a master, “It you knew how hard I had to work you wouldn’t call me a master.” Whether the event actually happened or the statement is true I can’t say. But what I have noticed as I have worked with top achievers around the world is that the statement is true. Every master started as a disaster. To get to high performance levels much hard work is required.

My challenge to you is to identify several new habits you need to develop in order to start moving towards your most significant goals. Push forward and recognize that habits are also developed in much the same way as turning on a dimmer switch. You aren’t going to get it right all at once but it will get better and better with hard work and dedication! Get started now!
