As people it is our human nature to select the activities and habits in our life to lead with our highest values. One of the disappointments that we create for ourselves is that we try to fool ourselves into chasing and pursuing things that don’t matter to us at deepest levels. We often pursue the wrong things because we take messages from those around us or the media as to what we are told we should enjoy and appreciate. Authenticity to our highest values will create results and happiness.

This can be seen in immediate gratification choices too. People grab what they think they want in the short term rather than what they really value in the long term.

Immediate gratification choices rarely add to our satisfaction in the long term. Most of the time they actually create regrets. They are generally based on what we value in the short term rather than support our long term vision of who we want to be and what we want to have. Those are long term decisions.

Most powerful opportunities and moments of greatness appear as people focus on sticking close tot heir long term values.

Make some decisions today that will allow you to identify your long term values as they manifest themselves each day as the decisions that you need to make. If you decide before the moment of decision arrives you will begin to see greater success!

You can’t hit a target you can’t define – Personal Power Mastery with Douglas Vermeeren

Most people have a hard time creating success because they never consider what success really looks like for them. Without a clue of what it looks like they lack a direction of what to do first to get there. And even if they happen to start down a correct path they have no idea what to improve or adjust along the way. You’ve probably heard the saying that a problem well defined is already half solved, The same is true in success. If you really know what you want half the challenge of creating it will be solved and you can more easily recognize what you need to do to make it happen. Take some time today to think more carefully about what you really want and don’t just passively wait and watch for things to happen. #personalpowermastery #ppm #douglasvermeeren #success #achiewvement #goalssetting

Are you seeking out the best? – Douglas Vermeeren

When it comes to the development of self you deserve the best. At least you’d think that’s how people would think. My experience in reality has been quite different. Not everyone understands the importance of seeking out the best. In fact, that has been one of the biggest differences between the top achieves in the world and those that are still struggling to find security, stability and success in their lives.

As I interviewed more than 400 of the worlds top achievers one common trait among the best of the best was that they always sought out the best. If they had a job to do they found the best people to do it. Doing something right once is always more effective and less expensive in the long run than doing things multiple times with an inferior solution.

Through out the years I have seen those who on the surface say they are interested in creating success remain stagnant and repeat the same mistakes because they are more committed to cheap and insufficient solutions more than they are to levelling up. If you want to level up you must increase the quality of your solutions. There is no other way. It’s like trying to dig a hole with a broken shovel.

This group is just rolling themselves. They are not committed to higher levels of success. They are seeking out a cheap, quick easy fix that doesn’t require more than they are currently willing to give. If you solve problems at the level you currently are comfortable with you get to keep the problems you are experiencing at this level. It’s that simple.

If you want more invest more in yourself and the solutions and support you need to get there.  Get committed to level up.

 

Everything around you can change – Douglas Vermeeren

Everything around you can change

By Douglas Vermeeren, Creator of Personal Power Mastery

Too often people become discouraged because they are caught in the middle of a less than perfect situation. Sometimes these circumstances can even be painful. They are certainly not inspiring and often times do not give the individual involved the tools or beliefs that things can be better. we are highly influenced by what we surround ourselves with and these things often limit us rather than empower us. But are we trapped by where we are and who we spend time with. Is there no hope to live the dreams we have if we are surrounded by challenging circumstances?

The simple answer is YES! Things around you can change. Here are a few significant ways that negative circumstances can change. And quickly…

  1. Change the way you look at things and they will change. When we see things as a challenge they stay that way. But when we look at them as stepping stones to a new situation they become that. I do recognize that some situations are just difficult to paint positive. In some situations such as a abuse that may be near impossible. And quite frankly when something is just plain wrong you should not look at it in an acceptable manner. But even in those severe negative situations you do have a choice in how you will respond and react. Rather than look for a way through LOOK FOR THE WAY OUT! On this note I also want to mention that there is support, help and loving people who will be there for you to make this escape. Start looking at it in the way that you know there are people who will support your exit. You are not alone. Even this shift of perception will give you strength and courage to start to create the changes you need.
  2. Raise your standards. As you change what you will tolerate your entire situation will change. If you decide that you deserve better or more in your specific situation you will start to become more. As You become more you will begin to attract the things that will change your situation for the better. Most people settle for their current situation and so their current situation continues. If you don’t level up your life you will always get what you’ve always gotten.
  3. Get moving. Action always changes a situation. Results appear as a result of an equation. Things around you will change in the same way.  1 + 1 = 2. You have control over one of the 1s in this equation. It’s you. If you decide to raise your standards to a 2 and act that way the end result is this equation 2 + 1=3. The end result has changed. You can also choose to not participate which turn turns your 1 into a 0. 0+1=1. The equation is changed again. recently one of of my students shared that their marriage wasn’t going as planned. There was a lot of conflict and challenge. We had this discussion about equations and she decided that even if her partner was not going to be loving and kind she could be. Even if her partner didn’t value some of the things she did she would still live her live with those values. So in some circumstances she became a 2 in their 1 +1 and a 0 in their 1+1. As you can imagine things changed in both circumstances. Douglas Vermeeren PPM 47In this case her spouse decided he needed to change his behaviour to keep up with the new and improved version of his spouse and this story now has a happy ending. That is not always the case, sometimes the changes to where you know you need to be result in a recognition that you and the other person are more empowered apart.  as you create yourself in the way you know you should be those answers will appear.

Change is required for success and satisfaction in life. When the things around you begin to conspire to help you magical and marvellous things begin to happen. Everything around responds to what you do next. Both in positive and negative ways. So determine carefully what you want and then use these 3 concepts to shift your reality to follow your vision.

Douglas Vermeeren – CHANGE: It begins with Influence

leave a comment »

Change has been the recent subject of many of my posts and articles. The reason why is that change is such an important topic. To get to new outcomes in life and achieve higher levels of success, self worth or power change is required. Naturally you’ve heard the logic that if you keep doing what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten. While this sounds very easy on the surface to do new things can require sometimes overwhelming change. Even for the brave and courageous there are changes that are just very difficult to make.

One of the biggest obstacles that I have noticed as I have taught change to my students is they often begin their desires for change to focus on things outside of their control. For example, they want to change their spouse, boss, their children and so forth. Often times they find themselves in consequences they created or fell into and rather than face those consequences they want to change those too. The truth is that while change can begin quickly the results or new solutions of change sometimes take time to unravel the problems that exist in the moment.

Often change is temporary or ineffective because the person making the change becomes discouraged when things aren’t working as quickly as they’d like. This article is not on the speed of change although there are many things we can do to get lightening speed change. But rather this is on the one things that slows change more than anything else.  And that is to give our power of change away to things beyond our influence.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 40You can only change what you choose to own. In other words, you can only have power over the things within your influence. I’ve often heard the argument when a relationship isn’t working “Why should I change. I’m okay It’s him/her that’s the problem.” That may be true (or not) but the one thing I will tell you is that every circumstance is the result of an equation. You + The other person = the Situation. Maybe it could look like this 1 + 1 = 2. In order to change the situation it is not necessary to change the other person. Starting with you will actually also change the results. If you change yourself to a 2 instead of 1 the equation looks like this: 2 + 1 = 3.

Changing the other person or other element of the equation rarely works in the long term. Sure a person may rise their behaviour to respond to the last argument or frustration. but it is never lasting.

However when you take the first steps to change – everything can change. Remember though it can take time and patience, but it will change. It has to – that’s just the way equations work out. When you change what you do you change what you get.

MyKnot-4319

So the next time you are tempted to require change of someone else recognize that it will not give you long lasting change. I have always loved the saying, “People are like string you can pull them along, but you can never push them.” If you want the situation to rise lead it there.
