Powerful Thinking Powerful Results to be a TV Show

PRESS RELEASE – POWERFUL THINKING POWERFUL RESULTS to be a TV show

Powerful Thinking Powerful Results

Powerful Thinking Powerful Results

Since the late 1990’s Douglas Vermeeren has been conducting the Powerful Thinking Powerful Results seminars through out North America. The program has focused on how thinking an modern neuroscience shape our day to day activities and help us achieve the results and outcomes we want.  This program has made a difference to many professions in the financial planning industry, real estate industries, among sales professionals and more!  This highly sought after program has been recognized for continuing education credits in may fields and has been the subject of many articles and books. But now things are about to get bigger!

Vermeeren’s representatives have just confirmed that an agreement has been reached for Powerful Thinking Powerful results to launch as a TV show on two national networks in the United States and Canada. “The commitment at this stage is for 20 Episodes.”  Stan Romero, press agent for Vermeeren confirmed. “The show will share many of the lessons that Doug has been teaching in the program, but there will also be a lot of new things that no one has seen before.”  The new things he is refer to  have a lot to do with the lessons on the brain and neuroscience involved. “In last decade so much of what we know an understand about the brain and how we process information has changed. This show will provide the most cutting edge research available and share the most current methods to implement it into your life that we can find.”

Douglas Vermeeren, who is also known as the creator of  film The Opus, expressed his excitement at the deal. “I think media is being very under used in the personal development world. These tools can be used to teach in such powerful ways. Not to mention the sizes of the audiences they can reach. It is astounding.” On the surface this may appear true, but why didn’t it work for Tony Robbins. He can fill seminars with thousands of people but his television show, ‘Breakthrough’ on NBC was cancelled after just two episodes. Is the world ready for personal development on TV?

Vermeeren and his team think so. “It’s unfortunate that Tony’s show did not make it. I keep hearing from many people that they liked it and what I saw I also liked. What will make us different? What will help us stick around? We are trying a different model and a different approach, but that may not guarantee us success either. But we’ll do our best and see what happens.”

Currently there are no confirmed dates for the airing of the first episode, but all sources confirm that production has begun. We will post on this story as it develops.

Selling Power

Calgary Sales trainer featured in Selling Power Magazine with cutting edge brain science.

 

Douglas Vermeeren is a Calgary based success teacher. His expertise sales, the brain and creating wealth. This month (December 2010) he was featured in Selling Power Magazine(www.sellingpower.com) where he unfolded 3 myths of the mind that keep people from reaching their greatest success in sales.

 

“These myths,” Stated Vermeeren, “are things that we cling to and believe are true. Ultimately many of these things are not true and they keep us from reaching our greatest potential. When we accept an idea as truth our brain work toward providing evidence of our beliefs. If these beliefs are false or negative they can have a negative effect on our end results. However, once we recognize that these ideas are not truth, we can dissolve the myth and create a more empowering future based on truth.”

 

In a sales career those who are most success rise to the top not because of a better product or system of sales.Without exception the top players are those who have the right mindset and beliefs about their abilities to succeed. Belief by itself however, is not enough, the top salespeople are also committed to developing the accompanying skills to be the best.  The winning combination therefore, is belief + skills.

 

The sales training that Vermeeren teaches is quite different than what you would commonly see from the many sales trainers in the business. His materials go beyond teaching ettiquette and closes. Included in this next step training are many scientifically based principles, including exclusive research on how the brain sorts and processes information while making a purchase and the rule of psychology in selling.

 

These sales programs are available from The Sales Success Academy to increase your sales skills, which will ultimately grow your bottom line.

 

Vermeeren is best known for his studies of 400 of the world’s top achievers. (No one has conducted such a study since Napoleon Hill did in preparing his landmark book, “Think and Grow Rich.” Vermeeren is also known as the producer of the movie The Opus and the upcoming film ‘How Thoughts Become Things.’

 

Vermeeren is The director of The Succeed Research Center (www.SucceedResearch.com) and the owner of The Sales Success Academy. (www.TheSalesSuccessAcademy.com ) Both organization are committed to ongoing research into the psychology and performance of success.

The Success Secret no One else will tell you

Do you have this Secret of Success?

Do you have this Secret of Success?

The Success Secret no one else will tell you

By Douglas Vermeeren

Everywhere you look today you can find promises of new products, books or classes that will teach you how to create incredible and immeasurable success. The success they promise may be the changes you want in the areas of increased abundance, improvements in your relationships, optimal health, greater self esteem and even increased spirituality.  While many of these products and programs offer valuable information and insights for creating success they are generally missing something. If you want to create success that will last this final ingredient may be the most important of all.

The success secret that is rarely talked about is kindness.

Although this principle is rarely eluded to in the success library of today it is common in all of the philosophical and religious materials of the world. Variations of the golden rule, to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, appear in the philosophies of almost all religions. The earliest record being that of the ancient Babylonians in a text called the Code of Hammurabi purportedly written in 1780 BCE.

Perhaps, because we have heard it so often we have taken it for granted.

While quick money and easy victories can be made without kindness, only kindness and consideration of others builds a sure foundation. As you do unto others as you would have them do unto you, they generally do it.

You’ve probably heard it said in jest that the golden rule is simply ‘he that has the gold makes the rules.’ But the opposite is actually the truth; he who knows and keeps the golden rule eventually gets to keep the gold.

Kindness allows for relationships of growth and trust. Kindness fosters a spirit of  cooperation and collaboration. Kindness breeds creativity and best results. When we feel that we will be valued and treated with kindness we bring forth our very best. On the other hand, greed and self centeredness cause a business, organization, community, family and even an individual to shrink rather than expand.

You’ve heard the saying that ‘nice guys finish last?’ Nice guys may take longer to build something, but they receive the privilege of being permitted to finish. When you engage in dishonesty or manipulation, you may fool people once but you will rarely get a second chance to do so. Success is about creating something that will last and endure. Something that a mean spirited and self centered person will never get to experience.

Kindness is not just about being cordial, polite and politically correct. It is about being of service, leaving someone better than you found them and improving things wherever you go. Kindness does not mean doing everything for everyone, everywhere and every time. It means being filled with a desire to see yourself and others succeed and then doing appropriate things with consideration in an empowering way. Learning how to establish proper boundaries is an act of kindness. Kindness includes using wisdom. Kindness arrives often in the little things and comes from character more than pocketbook.

Kindness is not necessarily found in solving problems. It is found in pointing the way to solutions and giving hope.

Your rewards in life will be proportionate to your ability to be of service and improve the world around you. Opportunities for service and improvement rarely come with labels attached. You need to actively look for these. I challenge you to go on a quest to spread kindness and consideration. As you do so success will become yours.
