Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

Here is a recent interview I did for a teen magazine. The magazine hasn’t yet been published so I will leave the name out for now. The questions were asked by a teen and I found it interested to think that these were issues that were on his mind.  How amazing to see people at this age really thinking about this stuff. I’ll be honest with you at this age I don’t know if I was this focused. We have a great generation on the way!

1) When you are having a really bad day how can you tear yourself away from the negatitivty that keeps coming?

 

When I encounter moments that are really difficult I try to take a break. Sometimes I will go on a ride on my bike or on a walk. I find physical activity and a change of environment help. I also find it useful to do something that I am good at for a while and shift my negative thinking back to an activity I feel confident in. However, I try to get back to and through the negative situation as soon as I can. Leaving or ignoring a negative thing rarely makes it go away. And to create great success in your life you need to gorw your ability to solve problems.

 

2) If you do alot of things for others and they don’t seem to notice how can you prevent this from making you feel bad?

 

The first thing to think about when doing things for others is to ask the question, ‘am I doing this for them or me?’ If I’m really doing it for them then how they react shouldn’t matter. If I’m doing it for me then I should figure out what it is that I really want back from them in the first place. When you do something for someone and then expect them to respond a certain way can lead to disappointment. Especially if the other person doesn’t understand how you are hoping they’ll respond. Sometimes it can be a lot easier to just be upfront and explain to the other person what you’d like to have happen. Then they can know how to respond. All frustrations, negativity and anger that we ever have is linked to moments when our expectations are not met. We have to recognize that people won’t always meet those expectations. But it will be easier when they know what we really want.

 

3) If you are someone who typically keeps your emotions to yourself how can you break this haboit and be more vocal of gratitude or positive reenforcement?

 

There are many ways ot express gratitude. While vocal expressions of gratitude is one way it is not the only way. Many times the strongest gratitude is not expressed through words. It can be through our actions, written appreciation and even through being a good listener. The most effective way to feel gratitude is always the method that makes you feel most fulfilled.

 

4) If someone you care about is going through tough times what is the best way you can help?

The best way I have found to help others in a difficutl situation is to just be a real friend. When you genuinely care about someone and they can feel it there are often very few things you can do wrong in trying to cheer them up.  As part of this I find that reminding a person they are cared for and telling them why you appreciate them can make a big difference.

 

5)What tips are there to feel gratitude daily?

The best tip that I have to feel gratitude and recognize more things to be grateful for everyday starts with stopping. What I mean by that is that sometimes we get so busy with life that we forget to slow down and recognize some of the amazing things in our life.  It can help to pick a quiet time to just think. Sometimes it helps to make a list of things you are grateful for. I find that shutting off the TV and simply going on a walk can help to clear your mind and reconnect you to the things that make you feel grateful.

 

6)How can this philosophy help you overcome depression?

There are several books and articles that present research that suggests that a regular practice of gratitude can increase your quality of life and help you overcome the effects of negativity and depression. In addition studies demonstrate that a regular practice of gratitude  provides increased energy, alertness, enthusiams and vigor. Gratitude inreases your chances of getting to your personal goals. Gratitude provides better states of mind for coping with stress, closure in traumatic situaitons,greater feelings of self-worth, better relationships, improved cardiac health and clarity of thought. As far as science can determine there are no negative side effects for gratitude.

 

7) Is it possible that some people are so negative that they cannot change?

No matter where a person is in life or what they have experienced they cna make changes for the better. It may not be easy for them as change requires them to let go of their past and beliefs they may have had for a long time. I often use the analogy that change is like trying to hold an ice cub in your hand. It can be uncomfortable and it can take time. But if you have a desire to change it can be done. Does it require help sometimes? Absolutely. The bigger the cahnge or shift the more support that is generally needed. Depending on the scope of the change would determine the size of the help. It may require a few friends or family members all the way to a trained professional. But the good news is that change can happen and there is help available. And the end results can be incredible. You can actually live the life you really want!

 

8) How has gratitude positively affected your life and why did you decide to take on this philosophy?

My life has been incredibly affected by gratitiude. I think in my early twenties I really took a lot of things for granted. I sort of felt like life just owed me and that everything should work out. I didn’t feel I had to put in my own effort and if things went wrong they weren’t my fault. As I learned to take responsibility I found that I also became more grateful. And the more grateful I became the more I realized that I had more control on my outcomes. As I took control of my outcomes I was able to start creating the life I chose. Since that time I have chosen how I really wanted my life to go. I have chosen how much money I have wanted to make, the job that I want to do, the relationships that I have, the cars I drive, the house I live in… everything. Now I admit things do not always go according to plan. But having a plan and recognizing that I am in control have given me more than waiting and wondering for something good to happen by chance. I no longer take things for granted, I take them as gifts and when you treasure what comes to you, you can build on it to create more.

By J. Ephazi

With all the advancements with technology, people are thriving on amounts of information available at our finger tips.  There are many people with brilliant minds that don’t have an outlet to release their ideas and philosophies.  Other people have a knack for assisting and motivating people to succeed with business ventures based on personal experience, or have been blessed to change another’s life by building people up, instead of tearing them down.  Now that people have access to share their knowledge and build people up with technology, it becomes a win-win situation for those starving to build businesses for success and turn lives around.

Information and technology have come together to offer a solution to individuals that desire to become a growing professional.  Unfortunately, these people are at a dead end for professional development, and that’s where you can be a relief and support these strong willed individuals on their ventures.

MAXIMUM RESULTS with Douglas Vermeeren, The Modern Day Napoleon Hill

MAXIMUM RESULTS with Douglas Vermeeren, The Modern Day Napoleon Hill

As a business owner in today’s tough economy, it is extremely easy for discouragement and pessimism to quickly turn a company with a very high potential of success into just another “failed business” statistic. Because the business environment is changing so rapidly right now, it can be extremely difficult for you as a business owner to focus on how to get what your business needs to stay afloat: results.

Without getting the results you need, you will quickly start to see the ceiling you once had for business growth quickly collapse. Without results you are going to constantly struggle to keep your company profitable and increasing your bottom line is something completely out of the question.

Fortunately it doesn’t have to be that way. Let me explain…

If you are any type of businessman, entrepreneur, or just someone who is looking to get ahead in life and take yourself to that “next level”, the odds you’ve heard of Napoleon Hill are pretty high. Napoleon Hill is the man responsible for writing one of the most popular self-help and personal development books that has ever been written. The premise of the book is simple: during the early 20th century, Hill conducted a bunch of research on 400 of the most successful people during the time period in an attempt to fully understand what separated the financially successful apart from the average person.

Fast forward 100 years. The things that worked back in the 1900s are not necessarily the same type of programs, strategies, and mindsets that would be successful in the generation we now live in. Can you imagine what the results would be if someone was able to repeat Hill’s experiment with top industry leaders and successful businesspeople today?

Now someone has gone out on a limb and done exactly that. Douglas Vermeeren, the man that has been called the modern day Napoleon Hill, the man responsible for shaping positive financial landscapes for thousands of businesses across the world, spent years doing exactly what Hill did. While still a broke college student, Douglas Vermeeren set out to discover those secrets that the millionaire’s and top successes of today must have.

Years later, after successfully understanding the business models, principles, and ideologies of 400 of today’s leading business men and women, Douglas Vermeeren knows exactly what separates the successful from the “average” business owner that just doesn’t know how to increase their profit and bottom line.

The best part? Vermeeren is determined to get this knowledge out to as many businesspeople as possible. To do so, Vermeeren has created the Maximum Results Coaching Program specifically for business owners like you who want to find out the secrets the successful business men and women aren’t willing to share with the public.

Unlike many “gurus” and other self-appointed teachers, Douglas Vermeeren knows exactly what it takes to maximize results; with the exact same strategies, teachings, and methodologies that he shares with some of the top business owners in the world, Vermeeren has been able to successfully turn himself from someone living on parental allowance during college into a self-made millionaire.

So what is it, exactly, separates Douglas Vermeeren and Maximum Results Coaching Program from other coaching and consulting programs that are available today? Simple: the majority of people who are talking the talk are simply doing just that; they don’t actually demonstrate that their systems will provide any type of results. For all anyone knows, these “strategies” that are being taught today to small business owners could be nothing more than theory to get the hopes up of unknowledgeable business owners.

Vermeeren, on the other hand, strives to provide teaching and materials that are specifically based and backed-up by real world data. The Maximum Results program isn’t full of fluff and filler that are simply there to waste time and make you think you’re learning something. No; maximum results can only be achieved if they are strictly tested against what is actually happening in the field today.

Just like Napoleon Hill went out and found the root of success by studying and learning from the successful people of his time, Douglas has done the exact same thing for the world we live in. The Maximum Results Coaching Program will allow anyone; whether you’re a small startup business owner who has 2 employees, or you’re a marketing executive for a Fortune 500 company, the answers you can uncover with Douglas Vermeeren and Maximum Results can change the entire financial landscape of your future, turn your business from nothing to a highly profitable company, or simply help you become a better person.

It’s time you put your business on the fast-track to success. It’s time you made your company as successful as possible. It’s time you finally strive for maximum results. With Douglas Vermeeren as your coach and guide, success is bound to be just around the corner.
