More speaking business training too! Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

fear-of-public-speaking-imageLately I’ve had a lot of event organizers hire to me to participate in several upcoming events designed to help speakers grow their business. As many know I do a lot of speaker training and have been doing one on one coaching in this capacity for years. As I’ve done these events and met with speakers I’ve had a lot of people tell me that although they love the motivational articles and ideas that I share they would appreciate it if I’d share more tips and tools from speakers along the way. I am going to attempt to do that.

While I own the domain and brand high profit Speaker I had something fun happen the other day and it kind of stuck. One of my students that has been in my one on one coaching for speakers had a meeting with me recently. They have experienced quite a bit of success. They have some really great content and with a little guidance from me they have been able to build a very profitable 6 figure speaking company in a relatively short period of time.  In our last meeting he said, “You are the Speaking Business Multiplier.” I’d never heard that term before but I actually really thought it was cool.

As I share these speaker tips and other materials I am going to adopt that title of Speaking Business Multiplier. I like it. It’s what I want to do for the speakers that work for me. It describes my mission perfectly.

I want to clarify that’s not just about money in my mind though. It about multiplying everything that is good in your speaking business. I want o help you have more opportunities, more stages, more products sold, more students, more JV opportunities, more media, more people in you audience, more countries visited,  more recognition, more unique content, more power more of everything!!!! Where does it stop? I don’t know but by bringing my over 10 years experience I hope to make some massive differences for people.

I bought the domain the Speaking Business Multiplier so you will see that up soon and I will add tools there as it goes live.

For those unfamiliar with my work here a little about me and what I teach taken from some of the information we share about our courses. If you are a speaker, coach or training and you want to take your business to the next level I don’t see many people out there teaching about the BUSINESS of speaking. Most teach about how to overcome fear of speaking publicly or how to “Rock” the stage. (While there’s probably value in the 50+ courses claiming to offer this – I don’t really know what that means.)  After having a look around there really isn’t anyone who does what I do. If you really want to grow your speaking business we should meet!

Here’s what others are saying about me:

He is the author of 3 books in the influential Guerrilla Marketing series!
He is the author of books in the Dummies series
He is the creator of 3 of the top personal development movies of all time.
He has shared the stage with nearly every top name in personal development today
He speaks regularly to audiences of 1000s of people
He has spoken on nearly every continent on the globe
He is a regular featured expert on many of the top TV networks
He is featured on the covers of multiple personal development & success magazines per year
In his first six months as a speaker he earned more than 1.6 Million dollars
And he can show you how to do similar things in your career.
In this presentation you’ll learn:

*Why MOST SPEAKERS STAY BROKE and what you can do to position yourself for success.
*How to partner and Joint venture with some of the most influential speakers in the world today!
(In my movies The Opus, The Gratitude Experiment and The Treasure Map I had the support of the following well-know leaders. I will reveal the secrets behind why they were willing to help me:
Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John Demartini, Marie Diamond, John Gray, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Raymond Aaron, Marshall Sylver, Loral Langemeier, Randy Gage, Mary Morrissey and others….
*How to become a regular featured expert on TV, radio and in the media.
I have a strategy and formal that has been getting me booked for years. Click here to see some of my media appearances on FOX, FOX BUSINESS, CNN, NBC, ABC, CTV and others – https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=douglas+vermeeren
*How to get on more stages and make big money with your programs
I bought this Ferrari as a gift for myself as a result of one event I did in Las Vegas. You can do the same with my easy to follow system. Me and my reward for speaking

*How to develop presentations and products that people are lining up to have! At one of my movie premieres we had more than 6,000 people in attendance. Most speakers have never seen that many people at an event before! Imagine that those kinds of numbers would be interested to hear what you have to say!

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal
By Douglas Vermeeren

th-1

I am a firm believer that a goal that is well articulated is the first and most important step to achieving your goals. In fact, a mantra often repeated at my seminars is that, “a goal that is specific and clear, becomes attainable and near.” However after conducted extensive interviews and research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers the description is not only the first step. It’s also where most people stop.

My research has determined that in order for a goal to be achieved there are 4 other essential factors that must be included with the description in order to make it achievable.

Naturally I am assuming that you are already committed to the goal and your reasons why you want that goal are big enough for you personally. The idea that you have to be it before can have it is also true. But I don’t believe you have to be it in order to start going after it. What you will become will take place during the pursuit of the goal. Perfectionists need not apply.

So here are the four things that I have seen consistently repeated among top achievers when they set and achieve their goals. (And naturally I see people struggle all the time when they are missing one of these things.) Consider these four elements like legs on a table. Without all four the table isn’t able to stand properly.

1)Strategies & techniques
All goals require you to learn and employ techniques and strategies that are specific to that goal. You will need to gain that specialized knowledge and skill set that will enable you to effective accomplish the goal.

thOne of my original success interviews was former NHL player and Hockey Night in Canada TV host Kelly Hrudey. When Kelly was a boy he was discouraged because he was not that great of a hockey player. He wanted to measure up to the others so bad that he dedicated hours and hours of practice to learn the art of goaltending. As a boy these skills did not come easy but after years of practice and practice he began to surpass the others around him. Getting to playing professional hockey is very competitive. The Huffington post did a study on how hard it is to make it into the NHL. They found that only 0.16 of the hockey players who had NHL dreams ever made it into the league and only 0.02 percent will ever be able to make a career out of Hockey.

kellyhrudeyKelly gained the skills to the level that not only did he get drafted into the NHL but he played for several teams, the New york Islanders, the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks. He learned the game so well that he is now a TV commentator on Sportsnet.

It’s not enough to just have the dream or even the belief that you can achieve your goal. You must gain the skills too.

2) Effort
All goals require new habits and a rearranging of priorities. If it was something that was already part of your everyday life you would have accomplished it already. One of the challenges most people experience when pursuing a major goal is that they are often surprised at the amount of hard work or effort. The hours can be long and the investment of effort, resources and even money can be extensive.

Recently I met with a new realtor who had set a goal to become on of the top agents in his city. As he studied those in his area who were consider the top agents he was immediately startled at the hourly commitments that these individuals were putting into their business. He was also astonished at how much they invested in marketing. Determined to reach his goal to be among them he began to move forward with the same fierceness. While he is not yet considered the top in his town he is definitely on his way there. Recognize that effort will be required and if you want to rise above everybody else you have got to be willing to do more than anyone else.

3) Perseverance
Even if you gain the skills and put in effort getting to most high level goals require perseverance over time. Perseverance however means more than just continuing and putting in your time. It also means hanging in there when things get difficult and maybe even appear hopeless. Everyone has heard the story of all the challenges that Edison had working with the lightbulb. It is said that he failed more than 10,000 times before he found a way to stabilize the filament. While that may or may not have been the case there are countless examples of obstacles that all top achievers have experienced.

These challenges are not just experienced by those in our history books. Challenges will always be present when you are stretching to reach new endeavors. You may experience personal learning curves you as you struggle to apply new ideas and concepts. You may experience moments of doubt that come through your own feelings or from those close to you. You may experience resistance from customers who are unsure of your offering. You may even experience conflict with competition as they try to keep you out of their business. All of these obstacles and more will try you to the core to see how bad you really want what your trying for.

Morris-GoodmanSeveral courageous people come to my mind when it comes to perseverance. One that is worth mentioning here is my friend Morris Goodman. Some of you may have seen him in the hit movie The Secret or my film The Opus. Morris had been a successful insurance broker and decides to buy himself a small airplane. One his very first solo flight he had a power failure and crashes the plane into some power lines. As a result of the accident he broke his neck and crushed his spinal cord. He immediately lost all ability to perform every single bodily function except blinking his eyes. The doctors doubted that he would even survive…but somehow he did.

Through a code of blinking and using a chart to identify letters on a chart Morris spelled out that he would walk again. The doctors doubted it would ever happen. He then surprised them even further by saying he would walk again by Christmas. No only did the doctors doubt but they even suggested he was dilusional.

This is where the lesson in perseverance appears. Morris began little by little to work on whatever muscles he could get to respond. There were days it was painful. There were days when it appeared that no progress occurred. There were discouraging days when he felt like quitting. But he didn’t. Overtime muscles began to respond and remember. He worked and worked hard. He never gave up.

Then came Christmas and although he wasn’t fully walking Morris did walk those steps out the front door of the hospital as promised. Today he still struggles and things aren’t back to normal. they probably never will be. But he continues to persevere he is still setting and achieving goals today.

4) Support
The things that I find most people seem to forget in trying to achieve their goals is that they are never alone. Mount Everest has never been climbed by a single individual without a team and the same is true of big goals in real life. All major and massive things require support. It is important when you set out to achieve your biggest goals that you also recognize that support and help is available to you too. And the amazing thing is that this help is far more accessible than most people believe.

The first step to acquiring help to get to your goals comes from being extremely clear about your mission and what you a re trying to achieve. If you know how to articulate your mission clearly and sustinctly you can ask for help from others in a way that they can say yes.

In my own personal life I have been consistently surprised at how many people are willing to help you solve problems and get to your goals. When I created my first film The Opus there were many new challenges to overcome. many people thought that I had bit off far more than I could chew. Especially when I expressed who I wanted involved and the scope of the project. But there were those that believed in me and my mission. I’ll never forget specifically how supportive Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen were when it came to shooting the film. They made themselves very available in the midst of a busy conference. Joe Vitale wrote amazing blogs posts promoting the film and sent out notices through his network. Marci Shimoff came and spoke for us at our premiere launch and helped get the word out. John Demartini has promoted the film actively around the world and has since appeared in two other of my films. There were so many others that helped as well that I wish I could name. But as I think back about how the help was able to arrive it was all connected to my ability to articulate when support I needed.

Great things are always built by synergy rather than selfishness. Too often those who fail to get to their goals fail because they are trying to hang onto all the praise, money, opportunity or power. There is truth to the old saying that says it’s amazing what can be accomplished when we don’t care who gets the credit.

No matter what your goals are the above 4 pillars will help you. Consider them carefully and explore how you can implement them more directly in your pursuit of your goal and you will achieve success.

Millionaire Mentor Program coming to Las Vegas

Millionaire Mentor in Las Vegas

Millionaire Mentor in Las Vegas

Monthly Millionaire Mentor Program coming to Las Vegas for One day special event!

Do you want to learn what it takes to become a millionaire? Do you want to learn techniques to accelerate your wealth growth in todays economy? Do you want to discover tools that anyone can apply to create a fortune? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to be in Las Vegas on April 30th, 2011.

This one day event will feature several powerful and impressive speakers including:

Sally St.John, Louis Lautman, Aimmee Kodachian

…and Douglas Vermeeren.

Monthly Millionaire Mentor

Monthly Millionaire Mentor

Mr. Vermeeren is the CEO of the Monthly Millionaire Mentor program.

After conducting extensive research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers, much in the style of Napoleon Hill, he made $1,000,000 in 180 days starting with just $1. Since that time he has been teaching others superior and little known ways for growing their wealth securely and consistently in his coaching and mentoring programs.

Vermeeren is the creator of the film The Opus (Featuring Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John DeMartini, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Bill Bartmann and others.) Vermeeren is the author of several books including the latest ‘Guerrilla’ book with Jay Conrad Levinson, ‘Guerrilla Achiever’ and ‘The Millionaire Myth.’ (With foreword by Bob Doyle from The Secret.) Vermeeren has been highly successful helping many to take giant steps towards their financial freedom.

Why is a mentor important? And what would you look for in a mentor? 

Let’s say that your objective wasn’t just to learn about growing wealth. Let’s say it was something a little more dangerous. For example consider the following question:

If you had to walk through a field of explosive land mines which option would you choose?

a) To attempt to go through alone.

b) To go with some one who also had never been through.

c) Go with a person who knew the safe way through.

d) Read a book about it and give it your best shot.

Naturally, the correct answer is C) Go with a person who knew the safe way through. Unfortunately too often people try to go through life and create a life of wealth focused on one of the other three options. Their results are  generally unproductive.

To get to the best results in the quickest time possible you need a mentor who can help you recognize the dangers, time-wasters and pitfalls that will take you off course or even keep you from completing your goals.

The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program is such a program. It is the first program of its kind that involves an ongoing relationship with your mentor and not just a one-time seminar. It is also the first program to take the participants through the process of the education all the way through to implementation. What that means is that you no longer have to wonder what to do next when you hit the inevitable challenges that will appear on your path. Growing your wealth exponentially is not a get rich quick or easy venture. If you want to do it correctly there will be many thins to learn ahead. This program ensures that you get it!

Can a single word create Greater Success?

Can you keep the secret of success a secret?

Can you keep the secret of success a secret?

By Douglas Vermeeren

Our words are one of the most powerful tools we have to convey our wants, desires, motives, intentions and expectations. Our words are more powerful than we give them credit for. Our words are responsible for much of our thought construction.

Rudyard Kipling, Author of the famous book, “The Jungle Book” once said, “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” When we think of the word drug we think of a substance that is used to alter states and create certain feelings within the body. When we approach the definition of drug in that way, words certainly qualify.

They can inspire us, cause us to feel loved, bring out the best in our actions and help us discover parts of ourselves we never knew we had. They can also create an opposite effect that limits us as well.

You’ve probably heard that what we talk about comes about. When we are engaged in conversations with others the words they use can tell us what  to expect and what another person is feeling inside.

Our words and the language that we use are symbolic representations of things or ideas in the tangible real world. When we think on these words or use them in our speech they activate specific areas in our brain that creates recall or recognition of the symbols those words represent. Based on our past experience with the specific thing or activity the word represents energies or charges are activated, or rather conditioned to activate when we interact with the word symbol.

These charges will either be positive or negative. (Not electrical necessarily – but of an emotional quality, either positive or negative.)This makes some words empowering to us and other words cause us to doubt, become fearful and even become offended when they are emotionally activated. When we attempt to process our thoughts in such an emotionally charged environment they are affected. (More on this phenomenon called, ‘Affect Illusion’ another time.) Depending on the emotion environment the thoughts nurtured in will often determine the end results they will produce.

Positive thoughts which increase our belief in ourselves immediately allow us to expand in our view and look for greater possibilities. On the other hand thoughts which limit us, make us afraid or cause us to doubt constrict our thoughts.

Our brain are wired to solve problems or escape danger. Even simple words which activate the state of fear, doubt, threat or containment requires our brain to seek a way to protect ourselves or escape. This survival instinct causes us to focus on that negative  energy until the energy dissipates, we escape or it is replaced by something more powerful.

An Experiment on the Energy of Words

Read the following two lists of words below for an experiment. Read them out loud. Read slowly and pay careful attention to the first images that come into your mind and how they make you feel. Let your brain find an image that corresponds to each word. Make the image vivid enough to feel the emotions your brain attaches them to. As you feel this energy ask: Are the words positive and empowering or do they cause negative emotions within you and cause you to feel contracted? Here’s the list:

Disgusting

Tragedy

Dirty

Vomit

Sorrow

Carnage

Pain

Fall

Regret

Wounded

Stench

Fail

Broken

Rude

Liar

Cruel

Did you feel a negative energy begin to circulate within your thoughts as your brain sought for recall or recognition of the symbol the word represented?

Let’s try another list of words, this time more positive.

Again remember to let your brain seek for the  images in your mind that you associate with these words. Make these images vivid, bright and real. Feel after the the emotions these images begin to plant within you. Read them slowly and out load. Here’s teh second list:

Joy

Love

Precious

Kind

Unstoppable

Caring

Hopeful

Expanding

Tranquil

Affection

Delicious

Clear

Harmonious

Strengthening

Comfort

Generosity

Friendship

What was the difference in the emotion, images, thoughts and feelings that these words created within you?

The energy that positive words ignite is undeniable and they have a profound effect on our thinking and behavior.

This isn’t really anything new, the earliest recordings of someone utilizing ‘The Power of Suggestion’ or words as Psychosomatic medicine date back to 934 AD.  The principles are explained by simply recognizing the mind is influenced by the words it hears, reads and considers.  Modern psychosomatic medicine regularly uses linguistic suggestion to create positive results in patients. What we suggest to the mind (most often by words) causes the mind to construct the reality internally and externally. The entire efforts of hypnotism rests on the power of suggestion.

In more modern times other systems have been developed to expand our view on the relationship between cognition, behavior, tangible result and our words and language. NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) developed in the 1970’s  by Richard Bandler and John Grinder established connections between our neurology, our language and our behavior patterns.

Through understanding these principles and several new other discoveries I have personally developed systems that are producing great results for people. Strategic Cognitive Construction (SCC) and The Ripple Effect are two specifically which accelerate the process of creating tangible realities from the things we think about using the power of linguistics.*

Through all these discoveries one thing becomes very clear.  Our words and language do play a significant role in our thinking processes.  To create great successes in our lives we need to harness the power of being more careful with the words we are using and accepting as truth when we consider our dreams.

One significant key to Success…

One significant key to Success…
By Douglas Vermeeren

As I have had the opportunity to study more than 400 of the world’s top achievers I have found a single interesting key to creating greater productivity and success in all areas of life. This key can be readily seen in behavior, but it really begins in our thoughts. In fact, as I have studied neuroscience and how the brain works it begins at a level even more precise than thinking. It begins with how thinking is made.

It begins with our neurotransmitters.

Thoughts move through our brain over a pathway that begins with a neuron, then crosses a bridge called a synapse and is received ultimately by a receptor called a dendrite. Neurotransmitters are the agents (either chemical or electrical) which send signals over the synaptic bridge between neurons and dendrites. This is the exact place where the critical thing happens. The information in the thought either makes the jump over the synaptic bridge and continues on or it does not.

To be simplistic there are really only two kinds of neurotransmitters. Those that activate or allow the impulse to go forward and those that inhibit the continuation of the impulse message and prevent it from going forward.

So when it comes to creating success which one is more important? The neurotransmitters that activate or the ones that inhibit? While they both are important I would argue that there is one that may play a more significant role in creating success. Which one do you think it is?

Most people would say instinctively that it is the neurotransmitter that activates that connections leads us to greater success. After all, we hear and read so many messages from modern gurus that say we need to be proactive and those that are out there “doing more are getting more done.” But is this true?

No.

In fact, success on the inside at a molecular level all the way to success at an outside level is a matter of inhibitors.

Think about it. Everyday and in every way there is an overwhelming amount of information coming in at us from all six of our senses. (That’s right six, balance is one of our senses too.)1. In fact, too much information is coming in that we can possibly process. If our brain had to analyze and sort every bit of information it reacted with it would be paralyzed by processing. That is why our inhibitors are so important. They sort everything into either important or non-important. The most important things it lets become activated the non-important it eliminates.

We see the same effect in the world outside our brains. Successful people do not try to participate in everything. They understand that they can only succeed if they eliminate or inhibit things that are not important. They understand that success means a clear focus on the most valuable opportunities. 2. Less successful people on the other hand let every small distraction and meaningless opportunity steal their attention from the most valuable things. When the valuable things come last your cannot every create that which is most meaningful.

The one significant key to success that we alluded to at the beginning is simple. It is to learn how to inhibit those things that are unnecessary or unimportant. That is called productivity.

Often times people erroneously consider that the definition of productivity is simply to get things done. And they argue that productivity is increased when you get more done. While that is partially true, the real definition of productivity is better stated as minimizing input while increasing output.

The definition of productivity must include the decreasing of input, which demonstrates that you have learned how to create a better and more effective level of input.

The key to become a success in anything in life is not to do more. It is to do less, but to ensure that which we do is done more effectively. (That is something we teach in our Primed for Power event.)

The one key to significant success

There is one key to significant success

When we can learn to inhibit more of the distractions that are keeping us from the important things in our life we will find that our levels of success will increase.
