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

leave a comment »

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

leave a comment »

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.

Douglas Vermeeren ppm 49

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.

Results – Are they really on the way for YOU? Bam #10

Results – Are they really on the way for you?


By Douglas Vermeeren of Personal Power Mastery

There are five areas of life where people try and achieve results. These areas are: Self (meaning in the areas of how they feel about themselves and their inner most desires), Spirituality and their connection to spirit, Health and elements associated wight heir physical nature, Relationships and interactions with others and lastly Abundance which has to do not just with money but includes aspect of their work, business, free time and more.

How many paths are there to achieve a goal?
In my seminars I ask students to select a goal that they’d like to achieve one of these areas. Once you have your goal selected think carefully before you answer this next question. How many paths are there to this goal? In my seminars people share all kinds of numbers as to how many paths they feel there are to accomplish there goal. But the truth is that there is only one actually path but what makes it seem like there could be many paths comes down to the tools that are used to accomplish each step on the path.

No matter what a persons goals are for the results they want in life there is only one path.

Let me illustrate with this example, the path is like a road yet you can choose what vehicle you will drive on the road.

845611598-billion-cars-road

To share what the path and also what that path effects and eventually includes it is also important to first identify that achieving results is not the first step on the path. In fact, it is not the end destination either.

Watch below to see where Results actually fits in. Here’s the path:

Thinking leads to Beliefs to Emotion to Goals & Decisions to Actions to Results

The ripples caused by your original thinking do not end here. As your actions begin to create results in the real world they affect the following:

Your results first effect You then Your Family then Your Immediate Network then Your Community or Tribe then (And this has changed a lot since the invention of the internet) now the World and onward to the Universe.

More later on how you actually affect the Universe. This one will surprise you:

universe-nebula

(We will go into greater detail on definitions of these in the future)

Some of the effects of your action are certainly more noticeable than others and some of your actions have more profound effects on those around you than others. But there is a concept called the Butterfly effect which states that all things are effect eventually even by the smallest of actions like a butterfly flapping its wings.

Purple-butterfly

For todays purposes it is important to recognize that this path of getting to results meaning, Thinking to create Beliefs which create Emotions Which cause goals & Decisions which create Actions which produce Results, this is the same for everyone. There wis only one way to create results and this is it. Even if the results you are creating happen as part of a team or delegation the early steps from thought to decision are still included. There is only one way.
Where people get the idea that there are different ways is that there are definitely differences in thoughts , beliefs, emotions, goals and actions that produce those results. If we were to look again at the analogy of road being the path. The differences of how a person moves along that path could be compared to the mode of transportation. Some people are walking and very slowly I might add, others are driving a high powered sports car.

As you grow more successful in your ability to drive this path you graduate to faster and more effective vehicles. As you are more creative in your approach and do things that others won’t, can’t or don’t think of the vehicle you select also improves. As you enlist the help of others in your journey your vehicle also improves and so does the quality of the ride.

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.

PPM logo

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.

unspecified-1

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!

One of the quickest ways to get awesome in your life – BAM #3

I-Am-Awesome-Close-Up-e1346147344621One of the quickest ways to get awesome in your life…
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.

But this kind of life doesn’t come easy. Lots of people want it, but most people aren’t prepared to let go of the things that are in the way. Surprisingly one of the biggest obstacles to living your life on your terms is not the most obvious.

Are you ready for it? Ego. Your ego is one of the biggest things that keeps you from being awesome. Without getting into too much detail you probably already get where I am going with this. If you look at the most inspiring moments from your life you will quickly see that they were not connected to moments where you pushed yourself to the front, manipulated circumstances to get your own way or made someone else feel bad to “make yourself look better.”

Now I’m not suggesting that all definitions of ego are bad. That could lead to a massive debate about what is healthy ego and so on. I don’t want to go there. I believe you can’t be awesome without a proper level of self -esteem. What I am talking about is the level of ego that pushes others down in an attempt to lift you up. That kind of ego and awesomeness cannot co-exist.

True greatness requires that you recognize and respect the greatness in others too.

And if you look at those around you carefully those that are truly awesome never have to tell anyone about it. Goodness doesn’t need a promoter. It always gets found out on its own. (Which is kind of ironic to say considering the image I used at the beginning of this article.)

As I started thinking about, and more importantly trying to practice this principle of awesomeness, I found that I was also more calm and still. I was no longer as competitive to make my points known or demonstrate that I was someone special or smart. I stepped back and started trying o become a better listener, learner and support for others.

The result immediately I began to have more awesome (Look back at the definition above) experiences. I also found that immediately the way others treated me back came more awesome. It may sound kind of strange but as I put myself second I began to experience things in a more inspiring way. The reward was I was feeling further ahead than when I tried to push ahead. Weird isn’t it?

Anyways, that’s my challenge to you if you want more awesome in your life. Put your self interests and selfish ideas second, slow down that ego and let others go first. It’s that simple.
