What do you value? Personal Power Mastery Minute by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

As people it is our human nature to select the activities and habits in our life to lead with our highest values. One of the disappointments that we create for ourselves is that we try to fool ourselves into chasing and pursuing things that don’t matter to us at deepest levels. We often pursue the wrong things because we take messages from those around us or the media as to what we are told we should enjoy and appreciate. Authenticity to our highest values will create results and happiness. This can be seen in immediate gratification choices too. People grab what they think they want in the short term rather than what they really value in the long term. #douglasvermeeren #ppm #personalpowermastery #success #goalsetting #personaldevelopmentDouglas Vermeren Personal Power MAstery 189

Emotion is our highest trigger – Personal Power Mastery minute with Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Emotion is our highest trigger. Often people say that they really really want something in their life and they are still not taking action. That is because they re not emotionally attached to what they claim they want. Emotion is actually a function of the imagination. If they haven’t yet captured deep emotions about a subject its because they haven’t really spent time imagining that future and really seeing themselves in the picture. Take a moment to really own your desired outcome and paint it vividly in your mind and do it often. You’ll find that soon enough you will begin to develop a stronger emotional connection which will in turn motivate your actions! #personalpowermastery #ppm #douglasvermeeren

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.

Douglas Vermeeren – What do you really want?

leave a comment »

If want to know what has been most important to you take a look at the realities you have created in your life. What you have created is the result of choices, priorities and decisions you have made. What you are currently are experiencing in your reality are the consequences of those choices. For most people the reason they are experiencing a reality that isn’t measuring up to all of the things they dream about is that they haven’t considered what they really want in the long term. Most people settle for a life a ease in the short term or immediate gratification with a quick fix solution rather than a long term beneficial solution that requires a little more upfront work.  The first step to really creating the life you dream about starts with deciding what you want.

When you decide what you want in the long term more than what you want in the short term you can make changes that will elevate your entire life.

Douglas Vermeeren – Decision interruptions than rob you of your goals.

Decisions are a hard thing for many people to make to start with. It gets even harder when a decision is interrupted by people, events, situations and “emergencies” that are not in line with the direction you are heading and the goals you have. One of the main reasons why this happens is that often we only make decisions on what we hope to achieve and the things we want in our lives. We neglect making clear decisions and distinctions about the things we don’t want. As a result we often sacrifice what we want most for the things that we allow to interrupt us.

There is a significant power in learning how to say NO and in establishing boundaries. It has been wisely observed that unless we fill our time with the things that are high priority your time will get filled up with trivial. In the PPM (Personal Power Mastery) seminars we discuss this phenomenon as we talk about being proactive. If you don’t decide what your boundaries are you will have none. You will be become the victim of the needs of others. I have often declared that reactive people become the slaves of proactive people. But they are also the slaves of other reactive people. Unless you have boundaries clearly set you can become a victim of the emergencies and challenges that others experience as well.

I’m not saying don’t ever help or respond to those in need. Do that. But have a plan in place ahead of time so that you can empower other people rather than enable then. As I interviewed the 400 top achievers I was surprised to learn that each one of them had boundaries in place when it came to rescuing others and providing aid. They had a system rather than a knee jerk reaction.

They also said NO regularly. If you have trouble with this have a polite phrase that you can memorize and repeat without having to think about it. Something simple like, “Thank you for thinking of me, but unfortunately I won’t be available for that.” Often as other experience you establishing boundaries their level of respect for you and your time will elevate. As a side effect in your future interactions they will value you and your time at higher level.

With a limited number of hours in a day, week, month, Year and lifetime you can’t afford to waste it by saying yes to things that pull you off course from your mission.

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.
