Don’t get discouraged – Douglas Vermeeren

Don’t get discouraged

By Douglas Vermeeren

Things can go wrong. Things can go really wrong although you had good or even great intentions. Obstacles arise that you hadn’t planned for. People change their minds or sometimes lie to get their way. Your efforts don’t always produce the results you expected. feelings get hurt unintentionally or things you say or are said to you can misunderstood.  Sometimes even the weather won’t cooperate. And we can get discouraged when things like this happen. When we are discouraged its very difficult to perform at our best and see situations and opportunities clearly. we tend to paint everything with a cynical or less than enthusiastic point of view.

Things don’t always go perfect. Or do they?

Often we are quick to judge whether an event or situation is positive or negative. What makes an even positive or negative? Most people would say the results or the way it makes me feel. This definition can be a little misleading. The problem with the hastiness of this definition is that it instantly has an effect of how we perform and what we are willing to believe. It immediately changes our desires and dedication to what we may be trying to do.

The truth of the matter is in handiness nearly everyone I have ever met have admitted that sometimes they are very grateful that certain things did not work out. They often are excited for the fact that because something didn’t work out they were able to discover better opportunities and situations waiting for them just ahead. So then was the negative experience really a negative experience or was it the seeds of a more positive opportunity just ahead?

This is why whenever something challenges comes along we need to do our best to deal with the matter at hand but recognize that this event may be the cataylst to unlock the more positive experience just a short distance away. When we get discouraged we shut off many possibilities.

Now I want to clarify I’m not saying its not okay to feel hurt, frustrated, maybe even angry at times. Those are natural human emotions and you will experience them. What I am saying is don’t get discouraged. What discouragement is defined as is the removal of the courage to move forward. DON’T DO IT.  Get mad, get angry, be hurt – just don’t quit.

Students at Personal Power Mastery have expressed at times how had they quit they would never have found the perfect job. started the business that made them wealthy, found their soul mate and in one case I am aware of beat a terminal illness.

Life is not easy. That much I agree with.

But it is easier for those don’t get discouraged. When you move forward with hope things get more hopeful.

It is time to recognize that it is not our business to declare what a negative situation is. Because they seldom turn out that way in the long run. Now is your time – Make it count!

How do you think your life should be? – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

As I have taught people around the world I have noticed several common feelings and thoughts around success. It didn’t matter if these people were from a corporate setting, high level executives, prisoners in a maximum security prison, students at a high school or members of a network marketing company. Many of the these common feelings and thought surrounding the ability to create success existed.

I am going to focus on one of these “Rules of success” today. And that rule is:

WE CREATE OUR LIFE TO BE  A REFLECTION OF HOW WE THINK LIFE SHOULD BE.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 54

Often people feel that life needs to be far more difficult and hard than it is. They feel that if they don’t create drama or challenge that the rewards life has to offer them aren’t really theirs. I have noticed that people consistently make attaining success much harder than it really needs to be. The truth of the matter is – Success isn’t hard if you’re committed to developing better habits. It’s no more complex than that.

People who believe it to be harder will seek out ways to pay the price beyond what is required. Or they will add steps that do not matter just to give themselves work to do. Success and achievement flow naturally to those who seek to simplify.

Those that think life should be easy understand that the ease of living comes from getting prepared and making smart choices. There are two stories I remember being told once although I can’t remember the source.

The first story is about two farmhands that come to a farmer for a job. The first  told of “how hard he could work and how good he was at solving problems.” The second simply said he “could sleep soundly when the storm came.” The farmer needed the help and was intrigued by both answers he hired both men. They both work hard but had very different methods of doing things.

work-farm

The one day a big storm came and the farmer understood what the second man meant in his interview. The first man had always worked hard and got the job done but at times it was sloppy and a little chaotic. The second man always seemed to finish first and was organized. When the storm came the scone man was prepared and could sleep because he had originally done the job correctly and with preparation against any challenge. The first man was out in the rain trying to fix things he had rushed through or done incorrectly.

Preparation and working correctly allow you to sleep in the storm while others become frantic.

Commercial-Stage_Coach

The second story is about a stagecoach company looking to hire drivers to take their passengers through the canyons of Arizona in the old west. The interviewer asked the first driver, “With your skill level how close can you drive to the edge of the cliff before you consider it unsafe?” The first driver responded, “I am skilled enough that I can even let the back wheels of the coach hang over and I will still have control.” The interviewer nodded and then asked the second driver the same question, “How close can you get tot the edge of the cliff?” This driver responded by saying, “I try to stay as far away from the cliff as I can.”

Which driver was hired?

Too many people in life look for how close they can get to trouble. That does not create a life of ease. It is a stressful place to be in and they may get lucky from time to time but it is dangerous place. Eventually things will go wrong.

Where do you put your stagecoach in life? Do you wait until the last minute to pay bills? Do you leave important tasks to do until later? Are you flirting with danger in your job, relationships, finances and more?

Your life is a reflection of how you think it should be.

What makes us act? Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

It has been estimated that each day we have more than 70,000 unique thoughts. Most of these thoughts pass by with no action and little acknowledgement. Some of these thoughts however are somewhat important to us and connected to our dreams and desire yet again we do nothing. Why is that? What is it that provokes us to act on the thoughts we have?

Douglas Vermeeren ppm 52The answer is simple. We act on thoughts that are emotionally charged for us. If a thought evokes no emotional response we let it go. There is no action.

On the other hand when a thought sits us or excites us enough it will cause us to do something. Its that simple.

Sot he real question is how do we get emotion (and high emotion at that) attached to the thoughts that we would like to turn into action?

That’s something we will cover in a future post. Stay tuned!!!

P.S. – By the way one of the things I really love about teaching Personal Power Mastery is that we actually experiment with this concept right in the seminar in real time. You learn how to establish empowering emotional charge around the ideas you want to turn into reality in your life. It’s pretty cool.
