Douglas Vermeeren announces new Brand and seminar series

unspecified
A lot of people have been writing in to me about my recent posts around the BAM movement. (Be Awesome Movement) The comments have been encouraging and exciting. I have received several comments asking specifically why I don’t share more of these ideas in my seminars. The truth is that I used to. In fact, these are the kinds of things that I taught when I first started in personal development and I loved it. I felt these lessons really made a difference in the lives of those I was teaching and it made me feel good to help so many people on a personal level.

I kind of gravitated away from this over time because most event organizers wanted me to teach about some of the successes I was having in business and financially. I like teaching those things too and I probably still will from time to time.

But today I would like to announce that I am introducing my new brand PERSONAL POWER MASTERY. The tools included in the initial program will share strategies on how to:

Create a more inspiring life
Make more effective decisions
Get those decisions to stick when things in your life are difficult
Overcome limiting beliefs permanently
The true way goals are set and achieved (Which surprisingly I haven’t found anyone teaching yet.)
Set up effective boundaries to stay positive in a negative world
Create more abundance in your life
Improve your relationships at business and at home
Take charge of your situation and create the results you want in all areas of your life
Recognize how your thoughts are becoming things
What the law of probability is and how is changes everything
Why top achievers success where others failure

And much more.

And that is what I’m choosing to focus on in level 1. I am excited about this content because I know from experience with past student – IT IS LIFE CHANGING!

As a result of this material:
I have a student who repaired a relationship that was destined for divorce.
I have a student lose close to 200 pounds and keep it off.
I have a student who developed a 6 figure business directly coming out of a bankruptcy.
I have a student who immediately increased his sales closing rate by 65%
I have a student who overcame substance addictions and suicidal thoughts
I have a student who grew his client list to the extent where he received two massive promotions in three months.

There have been so many success stories with this material. It is unique and powerful. It will change your life too.

My invitation to you is to register for a personal power event in your city and come and learn for yourself. I look forward to meeting you soon!

The new Website for the TV show Powerful Thinking Powerful Results is now live. The Television show Powerful Thinking Powerful Results is focused on exploring insights into the psychology of success and how to harness the power of thought to create better outcomes in the real world.

Vermeeren also explored a wide range of industries and business models that did not exist in Napoleon Hills day. Vermeeren has shared the findings from his research in several books, movies and at live training events.  Vermeeren is probably best known as the producer behind the Hit film ‘The Opus’ featuring many other top personal development teachers like Jack Canfield, Dr. John Demartini, Dr. Joe Vitale, Marci Shimoff, Mark Victor Hansen, Bob doyle, Morris Goodman, Bill Bartmann  and others.

Money cannot solve Money problems!

Money cannot solve Money problems

Money cannot solve Money problems

Money cannot solve money problems

By Douglas Vermeeren

Money cannot solve money problems. Yes, that’s what I said. No doubt you are shaking your head saying ‘this Vermeeren guy has really lost it this time. That doesn’t make any sense.’ Naturally our first assumption is that any and all problems created by a lack of money ought to be able to be solved by simply throwing a few bucks at it. Simple right?

Wrong.

The financial problems that most individuals and families face find a root much deeper than on the surface. All financial problems, like financial successes are first born inside. All financial situations begin first in your mind.

Thoughts are drawn like gravity to lower an less productive results. So when you decide that you would rather not give direction or leadership to your thoughts they naturally settle to the lowest possibilities. The real problem isn’t a lack of funds. The real problem is a lack of constructive, empowering and wealthy thinking.

One of my favorite sports is scuba diving. In diving we learn of the principle of buoyancy. Buoyancy is simple the measurement of an objects ability to float or sink. If it stays in the middle and doesn’t sink or float it is considered neutrally buoyant. Our thoughts are similar and different in one significant way. We have positive thoughts that empower us and allow us to create the lives we want and deserve. Negative thinking is just like what it sounds. Thoughts that pulls us down and frustrate our ability to be great. Neutral thinking also exists. In fact, this is where most people spend most of their time. They are thinking neither positive or negative.  However, when it comes to thinking we won’t just rest neutrally in the middle. As  the world moves around us our thoughts that are neutral keep us from participating and making any progress. The result: Negative results.

You see it isn’t enough to just avoid being negative. You actually have to do something positive and proactive to change your situation or it will not change.

This is where most people run into their money problems that we started talking about at the beginning. You see, we could cut you a check to cover of all your debts and put you on the road to easy street, but until you understood the power of being highly proactive and positive you would fall right off that road. You have got to believe that you can stay on the road yourself and begin to think about things that will repair and change your situation. The more effort you spent thinking about this objective the more resources will appear to help you accomplish that mission.

So what can you do about all this? The only two ways to fix a financially dismal life is to either spend less money or make more money. The answers as to how to do that come from your thinking. Here are few thoughts:

What thoughts have I been holding onto about my financial situation that is keeping me from solving it? Why do I feel I need to be poor? Take a careful look at what things you are simply not paying attention to that are costing you money. Where is money disappearing for late fees, interest charges, unnecessary credit fees?  How can I change this? What are you passively spending your money on without thought? etc. etc. etc.

How can I make more money? I prefer this route because to be honest I like to spend lots of money on things that maybe some people would think are foolish. What gifts and talents do I have that can be shared for profit? Where are you spending your most productive hours? How can you use these hours to build additional income streams?

Start inside your thoughts to look differently at your financial problems. From your thoughts everything can change. The problem for most people is they look outside for answers when the truth of the matter is they have all the solutions inside them already.

Money problems are never about the money.

Regret keeps you from success. Where do your biggest Regrets come from?

Regret keeps you from success

Where do your biggest Regrets come from?

By Douglas Vermeeren

Regret is like a weighted anchor that can tether you so strongly to the past that it may prevent you from accessing the best possible future. Regret is defined as memories with high emotional content, particularly with a sense of loss, sorrow or frustration. We all have some regrets and our ability or inability to manage them can be the difference between a life of ease and awareness or a life of stress and turmoil.

The bigger the thought of regret the more difficult it is manage those thoughts. The more heavily they weigh upon you will paralyze your ability to create a better future.

Where do your biggest regrets come from?

To understand this subject clearly we must first understand the 5 ways your brain learns and processes information. (This is something that is covered in greater detail in the book and movie “How Thoughts Become Things.” and the practical application of using this strategy to increase wealth, improve relationships and lifestyle are covered in the courses The Neuroscience of Success and Primed for Power.)

Essentially there are 5 ways or categories your brain uses to process information.  We all use each of the 5 areas, although we are generally more dominant in one or more of these areas. While all of these areas are important one specific area is responsible for most of the major worries and long lasting regrets in our life.

The 5 ways your Brain learns are Factual learning, Experiential learning, Social learning, Spacial learning and Intuitional learning.

Just briefly, here are simple descriptions of these learning categories so you can understand them in the context of this article.

Factual – This has reference to things that we interpret as fact. For example, 2 + 2 = 4, the capital of the United States is Washington D.C., and the declaration of independence was drafted in 1776. These are facts.  Our mind often categorizes opinions as facts too, but that’s a discussion for another time.

Experiential – This has reference to things we can only learn through experience or by direct interaction with our senses. (Taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight and sense of equilibrium or balance) For example, something like riding a bike or ice skating can only be learned through experience.

Social – This has reference to what we learn through observing those we interact with. This specifically includes what are we learning from our families, communities, religious environments, business associates, classmates and anyone else we may interact with. This is where much of our moral compasses are established as well as our beliefs and values.

Spacial – On the exterior this has a lot to do with organization and construction. For example, this is the learning you experience as you build a jig saw puzzle, play a game of Tetrus or even hang a picture on a wall. On the inside, in your mind, this has a lot to do with how we organize our thoughts and how we organize things into context. Sometimes this is referred to as conditioning. (As a side note it is in this category that top achievers are separated from those who struggle to create wealth, better relationships and lives of abundance. If you want to be wealthy then you need to learn how to master this kind of learning. More on this in a future discussion or get the book or audio program “The 5 Ways your brain learns” available on either of my websites listed below.)

Intuitional – The source of this learning is often hard to describe as it comes from within and is somewhat intangible. Something either feels right, or it doesn’t. With intuitional learning we know or learn something from out ‘gut instinct’ or a ‘hunch.’ Intuitional learning is the source of our greatest creativity and power. All significant successes have been sparked into being by this kind of learning.

So where do our regrets come from?

Is it Factual learning? Let’s think about this.  Have you ever had a lasting regret long term because you didn’t know the answer to 12,732 divided by 14? Or because you didn’t know the state capital of South Carolina? Or the exact date in history that the Berlin wall fell? You might have been slightly bothered, but the regret soon past. Our biggest regrets don’t come from factual learning.

Is it Experiential learning? Perhaps, while trying to learn a new thing like cooking you burnt the turkey or like me on one occasion when baking a cake, I forgot to even turn the oven on. Was it a source of major regret? Not necessarily.

Is it Social learning?  No doubt you have called out to someone in a crowd, “Jason!” only to realize that oops, that’s not my friend Jason. You duck your head and pretend it was someone else who shouted out.  Kind of embarrassing. Or maybe you tripped while walking down the street and picked yourself up quick and ran away hoping no one would notice. Also embarrassing, but not the biggest form of regret.

What about spacial learning? No one has ever been embarrassed long term because they struggled to put a jig saw puzzle together or didn’t hang a picture straight. This is not the source of our biggest regret either.

What is it?

It is intuitional. Our biggest regrets come when we felt something strongly and ignored the prompting. We experience the most regret when we know we should have listened to our gut, when we felt inside we should do something and did not do it.

This is where our biggest regrets come from. We will remember our whole life the love that got away, the time we should have acted on something we knew needed to be done, the words we knew would hurt and we knew we shouldn’t have, but we did. These are the source of our biggest regrets. Not listening to our inner voice or intuition.

From a science point of view our intuition is the only aspect of how our brain processes information that does not rely heavily on logic.  And if you think about it are any of your real dreams built on logic? If they are they’re probably not big enough. They should be built on passion. And passion like intuition are both very feeling based in nature and have little to do with logic.

My challenge to you is to listen carefully for that intuitional voice and trust your gut to guide you more often. Especially at the times when we don’t see logically how something may work out.

There have been many times in my life when I knew I needed to do something, even though the timing wasn’t perfect, or the finances were not in place, or I had to put something else off for the moment. I wish I could say I always listened, but I too have some regrets. One thing is certain, my best answers and results always came when I have seized an opportunity that my intuition, not my logic, told me to grasp.
