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

In 2006 the most misunderstood personal development movie in the world came out. That’s right I’m talking about The Secret. With the movie appeared a concept many people had never hear of before “The Law of Attraction” became the hot topic of conversations everywhere. While I am a firm believer of the law of attraction it quickly became evidently clear that most people had the wrong idea of what it was and what was required to activate the law.

One of the more memorable experiences that I had was with a friend of mine. After just learning about the Law of Attraction he told me how he was going to test it out by using it to acquire a brand new Ferrari. Long story short, after meditating, hoping and wishing for his Ferrari something happened. I’ll never forget the day he invited me for lunch to show off his Ferrari. As I sat at the table across from him he pulled out the business card for his new assistant whose last name was Ferrari. It had arrived but not in the way he expected.

It was a valuable lesson. we can’t leave what we want out of life to a wish, want, dream or regular thinking. Those things are important.But without the element of work focused on a specific outcome you have very little control over what arrives in your life.

The Law of attraction requires us to have strong feelings around what we want to attract and then do everything in our power to bring it about.

As I interviewed more than 400 of the worlds top achievers I saw this formula at work again and again. Each of these top achievers possessed a highly emotional commitment to what they wanted to achieve and then they worked harder, longer, more constantly and consistently than everyone around them to make that goal happen.

If you want to be a success you will have to do the same.

CONCLUSION and RESULTS: Only you can judge if you are living to your fullest and most awesome potential.

The measurement you will want to consider is what your heart tells you in how you can improve and be the best person you can be. This is a process and not a destination.

And if it was my job to evaluate you my evaluation would be simple and is consistent with everything outlined in the Be Awesome Movement. YOU are AWESOME and I encourage you to continue every activity that will lead you to more awesome! Don’t be satisfied with who you are today. The you from tomorrow is excited to welcome you to the possibilities ahead. You are Awesome!

You can’t attract what you criticize – BAM #4

You can’t attract what you criticize

By Douglas Vermeeren

An Awesome life is living your life by decision. You are where you want to be, doing the things that excite you, inspire you and bring out the best in you and in those around you.

This is the ideal that most people strive for, yet there are many who have a really hard time creating this as the reality in their lives. There are many reasons why they struggle creating the awesome life described above but the most common begins prevention is found in their thinking. Often this negative thinking manifests itself in the form of criticism towards other people, situations, circumstances or objects.

Criticism is a dangerous thing. Not only does it bring in negative energy it also established a fortress that keeps positive possibilities out. It becomes even more counterproductive when the individual criticizing other does so out of jealousy. In jealousy the offender is actually repelling what they what by criticizing other individuals who have achieved or are achieving what they want.

We have all been guilty of this.

As I have been guilty of criticizing others I have recognized that it never produced a positive or productive result. Criticism in my life has never produced better results or made me feel good. The more I thought about this there really has been no benefit to criticism, but it is still such an easy trap to fall into.

While in the criticizing mindset we shut off possibilities to create an awesome life as described above. The longer we stay in the mode of criticism the more it begins to affect others. What starts with a mutter or whisper in our mind soon becomes verbalized. What then is said to others gets repeated as a gossipy statement. These comments do not help to enlist the support of others you may need to accomplish your goals. Instead they let people know that you are not inspiring and fun to be around. You are a complainer.

Eventually the criticism will reach back to the person it discusses. This is when things really can turn for the worse. Have you ever had someone criticism you and felt to thank them for it? Of course not. The criticized person feels hurt and often distances themselves from the critic. It’s a great way to lose friends and create enemies.

While objects don’t have feelings I believe the same energy unfolds. You can’t attract what you criticize on any level.

My challenge to you today is to notice your criticisms and follow the two pieces of advice that your mother most likely gave you years ago:

“You get more with sugar than spice. SO be nice.”

and…

“If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

Be awesome not a critic. No one is perfect although we are all trying pretty hard to do the best we can. Seek to praise and find goodness and praise and goodness will find you. It’s that simple.

And besides the world has too many critics already. Try being original instead.

Douglas Vermeeren reinvents Speaker training with High Profit Speaker
By Terri McCoullogh

In a world where there are so many good tools available for speakers to take their business to the next level it’s hard to believe that something could come along to take the idea of good training and make it spectacular. That’s exactly what Douglas Vermeeren, the president of High Profit Speaker has done with their training. Perhaps the name says it all – HIGH PROFIT SPEAKER. (www.HighProfitSpeaker.com)This is what their focus is on and it makes sense as you’ll see in the following interview:

Terri McCoullough: With me is Douglas Vermeeren, The President of High Profit Speaker. His company focuses on training public speaker, or motivational speakers to create greater success in their business. Today he is going to share with us a little bit about how his company is changing the speaker training world and what speakers can do to take their business to the big profit levels. Thanks for being with me.

Douglas Vermeeren: It’s good to be with you.

Terri McCoullough: Most people who would know you know that you are the producers of 3 of the most successful personal development movies, The Opus, The Gratitude Experiment and The Treasure Map. They also may know you as the author of 3 books in the Guerrilla Marketing series and one for the dummies brand. But what they may not know is that you are a highly profitable speaker and you teach others how to do the same. Can you tell us how you got there?

Douglas Vermeeren: Thank you Terri. Actually I’m kind of glad you mentioned the other things too, but becoming a high profit speaker really involves a bigger picture than just focusing on profit. It’s important to have a full business model and a variety of elements in place to grow your expertise and credibility in the marketplace. That’s what I’ve tried to do with the books and movies I’ve created in addition to what I’ve been able to do on the stage.

Terri McCoullough : What would you say is the biggest mistake that most speakers are making today?

Douglas Vermeeren: Well, I think the biggest single mistake is that they don’t really have a business model figured out for their speaking. And without the model any speaking, coaching, products, seminars, workshops or whatever they are trying to do is not attached to strategic plan for growth. They basically wing it. And because they are reinventing themselves nearly every presentation they are also begging at square one to find new customers each time.

Terri McCoullough : Explain to us what you mean by business models for speakers? What are you referring to when you say a business model?

Douglas Vermeeren: I think a business model really means two parts. It’s not a business plan when you break down what you are going to do. It’s really about identifying the transactions that your customer base is willing to pay for based on the problems you can solve for them. And the second part of the business model deals with your funnels. When you find customers where will you take them so that they can get results and compensate you for your support and teachings.

Terri McCoullough: What elements are important for speakers to consider?
Douglas Vermeeren: Well, I think a big thing that most speakers do as a mistake is that they spend a lot of time developing great content, but not enough time thinking and planning about how they will sell it so their audience can get results and they can make a profit. Profit is important as a speaker. I often tell our students that if you don’t make a profit you don’t get the privilege. Meaning the privilege to be in the speaking business.

Terri McCoullough: How can people learn more about your programs if they’d like to become High Profit speakers?

Douglas Vermeeren: They can go tour website http://www.HighProfitSpeaker.com There they can find a free ebook called 3 Obstacle to Speaking Success. This will help give them basic tools to start. From there they could also register to attend a free info session in their area.

Terri McCoullough: Thank you talking the time to talk with me.

Douglas Vermeeren: Thanks for having me.

A weird way of setting Goals for transformational leaders and speakers

A weird way of setting goals for transformational leaders and speakers

By Douglas Vermeeren

Goal setting is the hot topic of the day! Most people that I’ve chatted with on the subject generally do it in categories in their life. Some of those categories include what they will do in their personal life and relationships, Business/product growth and revenue growth, things they’d like to learn and accomplish personally. These are all important areas to focus on – but here’s a quick thought. Have you ever made a list of the people you’d like to serve this year and what you’d like to do for them?

I’m talking simply make the list and leave it at that.

Think about it. If you make a list of who you’d like to serve and how you want to empower them, don’t you think most everything else will take care of itself?

If you are truly interested to become a transformational leader and help people get results doesn’t this approach make more sense. Your students and contacts will reward you as they get results. We have a saying at High Profit Speaker, “Compensation follows completion. People don’t pay for good intentions.” So in your planning focus your time and look at who you can help, how you can help and make it less about what you want.

You already have heard Zig Ziglar’s oft quoted truth, “You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough other people get what they want.” Don’t just say it. Live it!

Happy New Year!
