Wealth secrets that often forgotten – 3

leave a comment »

As I was writing on my newest book this morning on Wealth and Abundance I was thinking about something interesting one of my mentors told me once. I said to him, “I wanna be rich one day.” He said, “Thinking like that you’ll never get there.” I was really surprised I thought what I said was correct. He said, “It’s not committed enough try again.”

I then said, ” I am Going to be rich. And I am willing to do whatever it takes.”
Again he shook his head, “Not committed enough.” Frustrated I said, “Okay what’s better than that.”

He said, “I am rich and this is what I am doing right now.”

It was a profound lesson for me. True story.

10 Great thoughts on money from Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

  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.

Are you in the right frequency?

The Millionaire Frequency

The Millionaire Frequency

Are you in the right Frequency?

How is it that some people can make money without even trying and others stay broke no matter what they try? Is there more to becoming rich than just wanting to have money? Douglas Vermeeren thinks so. You may remember Vermeeren as the producer of the film The Opus, which featured  many of the stars from the hit movie The Secret. In the film The Secret, the teachers of the film suggest that by implementing something called the Law of Attraction that anyone, anywhere can achieve the dreams and live the live that they really deserve.  The premise behind the Law of Attraction is that anything we think, feel and value strongly enough will ultimately allow us to create those wishes as reality in our lives. There are many people who subscribe to the law of attraction including Douglas Vermeeren.

In his newest program called The Millionaire Frequency, he suggests that there is a frequency in our thinking and our feelings that can create greater financial abundance in our lives. According to Vermeeren, most people are not in tune with the vibration of abundance and that is why they are often without. He contends that all millionaires, billionaires and high net worth individuals are in tune with this frequency – even if they don’t know it.

So how can you learn this frequency? It is available in an audio program that provides the affirmations and affirmactions, a term Vermeeren came up with to describe a style of his teaching that partners affirmations with actions that you can take. These affirmations and affirmactions are calculated to get you on the right track, and more importantly in the right frequency of wealth and abundance. And as you get into that frequency, your thinking will change, your actions will change and ultimately your results will change.

This CD is now available on http://www.DouglasVermeeren.com http://www.TheMonthlyMillionaireMentor.com and of course, Amazon.

The book accompanying this program will be released later this year, for more information call 1-877-393-9496

 

Powerful Thinking Powerful Results – #1 thing that can turn your thoughts into power instantly!

Powerful Thinking Powerful Results

Powerful Thinking Powerful Results

It is estimated that each day we have more than 70,000 unique thoughts. So what is it that controls our thoughts? How does our mind select which thoughts to develop and which thoughts to ignore? How do the prominent thoughts become things?

In order for thoughts to develop into reality they must be permitted to develop in the mind.

As they develop they grow and are built upon. If the spark of thought continues to grow action can result. Action will then bring that thought into reality.

Many of the thoughts that develop in the mind do not become a reality. We have all had thoughts that began as a brilliant burst of inspiration. Perhaps these ideas even got you excited for a few minutes, maybe an hour, a day or even a week… Then they faded away.  Even though they started as powerful ideas they did not end up as a tangible reality in your life?

How could an idea so bright and exciting turn dim or disappear altogether.

 

Even more frustrating are the ideas that do not disappear. They anchor themselves in the back or your mind, they cling to you waiting for the day that you may act upon them. These are probably the most painful ideas. You know in your heart that if you did something with these kinds of ideas they would really make a difference in your life.

 

What is it that holds us back? What is it that keeps us from creating the reality we are thinking about?

One of the most significant factors that determines our reality are our expectations.

What we believe could happen is the line that all thoughts must pass in order to become action. Taking action on a thought is the way it is translated into reality.

Expectations can include what we believe a specific outcome will be, but also what we believe we are entitled to and how we believe we should act in certain situations.

 

As expectations can often be based on past experience or pre-determined values often our expectations will cause our thinking to follow a similar course to what we have done in the past.

 

Expectations of outcome often guide our thoughts and our behavior to conform our new experience with a past situation. Here is an example of where we have experienced this:

 

  • We also see expectations at work in the movies. If I said Tom Hanks is in a movie what kind of movie do you think you’d be going to watch? What if I said Ben stiller? Would you envision a different kind of film? And when you went to see it how would you feel if it didn’t jive with your expectations? You’d be disappointed. In fact, Hollywood has seen a lot of movies over the years that didn’t make it simply because they changed the formula, or constructed a story with an actor contrary to your expectations.

 

Entitlement is also an overlooked element of expectations.  What you feel you are entitled to will dictate your thinking on certain matters.

 

There was a study conducted some years ago to determine the role that sacrifice or activity had on entitlement. The experiment involved two groups. One group was given a variety of tasks to complete and then after completing the work, was ushered into an empty room with a table and chair. On the table was an envelope with $50 bill and the words thank you written on the envelope.

 

The second group was simply ushered into the room. They had no work to do. The same envelope rested on the table.

 

The majority of people in the first group that had done the work felt that the envelope was left there for them and it was payment for their efforts. Most in the second group felt the envelope was meant for someone else and it was probably left there by mistake.

 

Work, sacrifice and effort give the mind a sense of entitlement.

 

Entitlement is a mysterious thing. I often encounter people who feel that they have not yet paid the price to have what they want, to be who the really feel they should be, or have the relationships they deserve because they have not sacrificed what is required. This is a victim mentality and it keeps many from acquiring the reality they truly desire.

 

The next expectations are expectations about how we believe we should act.

 

I have seen examples of this at numerous seminars and motivational events. This lesson is often used by the speaker to teach people to think differently and to consider that there are often more direct routes than those we initially consider to solve a problem.

 

This is how the scenario plays out, the speaker typically takes a prize (I’ve even seen it done with $100 bill) and simply holds it up and asks “Who would like to have this prize?” Naturally a number of hands raise within the group. He asks again, “Who wants this prize?” Still more hands are raised in the group and often people begin to get a little excited. At this point the speaker asks again with more intensity in his voice, “Who wants the prize?” By this time the audience usually gets it and an audience member actually leaves their set and comes to claim the prize. Again this is a great example of social expectation.

 

Why won’t we leave the seat instantly to claim the prize? We don’t leave our seat to get the prize because we question ourselves. Is it the right thing to do? What will others think of me? Is it proper?  We ask ourselves similar questions on a daily basis that and as a result we prevent ourselves from acting on the thoughts that will empower us most.

 

In a study of the most successful businesses and inventions of all time, you will find that the majority of these successes are innovations on existing ideas. I always get a smile when I hear that Thomas Edison is considered the greatest inventor of all time. It isn’t true. Every major invention that he produced from the light bulb, to the phonograph to the motion picture camera is an innovation on a earlier effort by someone else. You can be an innovator too.

 

You don’t have to think according to a set of imaginary rules.

 

Expectations are a great source of power as much as they can be a great obstacle to your success.

 

If we expect to fail we will not think in empowering ways. We do not dedicate action energy to created failing expectations a reality. That doesn’t mean we don’t dedicate thought to create negative expectations. we do that quite often. If we believe that expectation to be the coming reality, we will create it positive or negative.

 

If we want to create the life we really want we have got to expect it can happen. When we expect to succeed, our thoughts become like a magnet directing all our energies to supporting the expectation.

 

Just a few more thoughts on why expectation is important

The subconscious mind seeks to find solutions to challenges quickly and so it seeks for the most direct route to solutions in the thinking processes. The mind doesn’t really care if the solution is positive or negative. It just wants an answer. When we are on “automatic” pilot, so to speak, our expectations guide thinking almost entirely.

 

Because our mind is always looking for immediate solutions we think and act from a reactive position.   Essentially what our mind is doing is trying to protect us. It is constantly analyzing scenarios and situations to prevents us from experiencing harm or other things we may need to defend against.

 

So how can we build positive expectations?

Positive and empowering expectations must be build on purpose and ahead of time. They cannot be reactionary.

 

Why must they be planned ahead of time and how can that help? In order to explain why it is important to plan ahead of time what you to expect let me address an important characteristic of how our mind remembers.

 

Try to remember two things, notice which of the two things is easier.

 

1)What was the date that United States entered world War 2?

2)What did your first love look like?

 

If you are like most people you found the first question to be much harder than the second. Why is that? The first question dealt with the recall part of your memory. It was a cold hard fact your mind went searching for.

 

The second dealt with recognition. You probably also spent a lot more time thinking about the second question and you might even still be thinking about it now. emotion is attached more to recognition than recall. for those of you who are familiar with the 5 ways the brain learns this would be experiential learning versus factual learning.

 

This is the point: It is a lot easier for your brain to recognize something than it is to recall it.

 

Back to how this effects expectations.

 

If you build your positive expectations clearly, carefully, and emotionally you will have greater power to recognize these expectations and when you are thinking in harmony with them. Your mind will begin to bring your thinking into a supportive position to these expectations and look for evidence to support your new expectations.

 

Your mind also recognizes what is not in harmony with your expectations and discards those thoughts.

 

Expectation can be used in a positive way. Once we begin to expect things to occur in a way which is empowering to us our thoughts begin to direct our actions to follow that course.

 

What we expect, our thinking will support.

 

Expect good things and your thoughts will follow! If your thoughts follow you will begin to see the fruits of these expectations become a reality in your life.

What do 84% of all self-made millionaires have in common?

Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

What do 84% of all self-made millionaires have in common?
Douglas Vermeeren, CEO of The Millionaire Training Systems

Many people in the world would like to become millionaires. Becoming a millionaire comes with privileges and financial freedom that people who live paycheck to paycheck will never realize. A millionaire lifestyle comes with greater opportunities and increased freedoms. Millionaires experience less stress and increased opportunities to creatively explore their full potential. Most millionaires today are self-made and according to current research are made quick quickly. The average self-made millionaire today accomplishes this task in less than five years. Each year there are more than 200,000 thousand added to the ranks of the millionaires. Which translates into 547 per day and 22.8 per hour.

There has never been a better time or an easier time to become a millionaire than now!

Most self-made millionaires today live in North America. 84% of them have one thing in common. That one thing is that they are entrepreneurs. (The other 16% of self-made millionaires typically come through investing, including real estate.) These entrepreneurs can be divided into several sub categories. For this article I will focus on three.

Inventor – Inventors recognize a need for a solution to a specific need in the marketplace. They then devise a way to provide that solution. Often inventors partner with manufacturers and distributors to take the new invention to market. Inventions don’t always to be unique and incredible to be successful. In fact, generally inventions that are not highly simple don’t make it. Inventions aren’t limited to products, inventions can also include services or systems. Generally speaking, the bigger the problem the invention solves for the most amount of people, the more successful it will be. What could you invent that would solve a problem in todays marketplace?

Innovator – Innovators take an existing idea, service, product or business model and innovate it into something more effective. Typically the best innovations make something easier to use, save time or take up less space. Innovators are always on the prowl to determine how they can take something and make it better.The majority of Thomas Edison’s patents (and things which we was credited for inventing) were actually innovations on existing ideas that were either already in the marketplace or that had been presented in a more clumsy form by other inventors. Innovation is generally most successful when the subject being innovated is something that large groups of people need or would use. What existing idea, service or opportunity in the marketplace today could you innovate to become highly success?

Goods and service provider – Goods and service providers generally do not invent or innovate at all. they simply out perform their competitors. A great example would be Walmart founder Sam Walton. He simply found a better way of delivering products at a better price. The products weren’t essentially different from other department stores. The difference was in his ability to deliver them at a discounted rate by acquiring them in greater bulk. You’ve probably caught a little bit of a theme by now that you need to have a significant audience to support your entrepreneurial idea. In order for your goods or services venture to be successful you need to have something where a large enough support audience exists. What goods or service could you bring to market that a significantly sized audience would support? How could you bring it to them in a way which is better or more convenient?

84% of all self-made millionaires are entrepreneurs. Once they understand what they will deliver to their target audience they then develop systems to make marketing, sale and delivery possible and easy.

Our organization Millionaire Training Systems  shares expertise from many self-made millionaires who have done this before. Mentors like ours can help you analyze and strengthen your ideas, and then help you take them to market in the best ways possible.

Not everyone can be Rich? Is this true?

Can I be rich?

Can I be rich?

 

Not Everyone can be rich? Is this true?

(an Excerpt from The Millionaire Myth by Douglas Vermeeren)

One of the most oft repeated excuses keeping people from becoming wealthy is the idea that ‘not everyone can be rich.’ There are three specific problems with this common belief. We’ll address each of them.

1)Not everyone can be rich, therefore I have no choice but to be poor.

The thing that many people do not grasp is that not everyone can be poor either. Who gets to decide? of course, you do. And those decisions are happening every moment of the day. All decisions begin first in your thoughts.

Someone does have to be rich and someone has to be poor. The question is ‘Why can’t you be the rich one?’ There is no reason it couldn’t be you, except for you.

Decide today that you can be among the rich and abundant.

2)Not everyone can be rich because being rich requires specific smarts and ability.

While becoming and staying rich do require you to learn certain things, these things are generally not the things learned in school. The things you need to learn about creating wealth are less about the lessons and more about the character traits.

Several of the most well-known millionaires and billionaires did not excel in their post secondary education. Fred Smith, founder of FedEx, shared his overnight delivery concept for a University class at Yale. The professor awarded him a C for the project.

Some financial giants even chose to leave post secondary education to grow their business. Bill Gates for example left Harvard University without completing to start Microsoft.

In regards to formal schooling Eiji Toyoda, The founder of Toyota motors once said, “…more important is the work a person  accomplishes in the 10 or 15 years after school.”1.

While school smarts are valuable there are attributes that are more valuable. Things like discipline, self-control, tenacity and patience. You have got to learn to control emotions like frustration, anger and greed.

Many of the most successful millionaires and billionaires in the world have experienced several setbacks. One report suggests that the average self-made millionaire suffers bankruptcy 3.2 times.2.

There are going to be times that will test you to see how bad you want to become rich. Becoming wealthy is not a simple exercise of ‘sit back and watch.’

You have got to want to make it happen and then get busy doing the right things.

3)They don’t really have a real understanding of what rich is.

Lastly, many people do not understand what it is to be rich. One definition of rich is to be able to make whatever choices you wish without considering the financial cost.

In my seminars “The Millionaire Experience” we share the concept of finding your Financial Freedom Number. You Financial Freedom Number is simply the income or cash flow amount that needs to come to you every month guaranteed, to cover your financial obligations. Once this number has been met you are free to make any and all choices you want to better your lifestyle.

The challenge that most people have is they have no clue of how much they need every month to become financially free. (In the book The Millionaire Myth there are some exercises that will help you determine this number.) Once you understand what this number is you can go beyond your Financial Freedom Number to something called your Financial Fortune Number.

This where your wealth can grow exponentially. We’ll talk more about how to build this number in a future setting. The key principle that I want to leave with you now is that most people don’t understand what rich looks like for them. They simply say I want to be rich and have now idea what the target looks like.

When you have a clear view of what you want to accomplish, your chances of accomplishing it grow.

So decide to be rich today. Recognize that anyone can do it if you have the right attributes and get to work doing the right things. And lastly, get a clear vision of what rich looks like for you. Armed with these three tools your chances of becoming rich will increase dramatically.
