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.

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.

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

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!

Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

leave a comment »

Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

Can gratitude make a difference for your teen?

Here is a recent interview I did for a teen magazine. The magazine hasn’t yet been published so I will leave the name out for now. The questions were asked by a teen and I found it interested to think that these were issues that were on his mind.  How amazing to see people at this age really thinking about this stuff. I’ll be honest with you at this age I don’t know if I was this focused. We have a great generation on the way!

1) When you are having a really bad day how can you tear yourself away from the negatitivty that keeps coming?

 

When I encounter moments that are really difficult I try to take a break. Sometimes I will go on a ride on my bike or on a walk. I find physical activity and a change of environment help. I also find it useful to do something that I am good at for a while and shift my negative thinking back to an activity I feel confident in. However, I try to get back to and through the negative situation as soon as I can. Leaving or ignoring a negative thing rarely makes it go away. And to create great success in your life you need to gorw your ability to solve problems.

 

2) If you do alot of things for others and they don’t seem to notice how can you prevent this from making you feel bad?

 

The first thing to think about when doing things for others is to ask the question, ‘am I doing this for them or me?’ If I’m really doing it for them then how they react shouldn’t matter. If I’m doing it for me then I should figure out what it is that I really want back from them in the first place. When you do something for someone and then expect them to respond a certain way can lead to disappointment. Especially if the other person doesn’t understand how you are hoping they’ll respond. Sometimes it can be a lot easier to just be upfront and explain to the other person what you’d like to have happen. Then they can know how to respond. All frustrations, negativity and anger that we ever have is linked to moments when our expectations are not met. We have to recognize that people won’t always meet those expectations. But it will be easier when they know what we really want.

 

3) If you are someone who typically keeps your emotions to yourself how can you break this haboit and be more vocal of gratitude or positive reenforcement?

 

There are many ways ot express gratitude. While vocal expressions of gratitude is one way it is not the only way. Many times the strongest gratitude is not expressed through words. It can be through our actions, written appreciation and even through being a good listener. The most effective way to feel gratitude is always the method that makes you feel most fulfilled.

 

4) If someone you care about is going through tough times what is the best way you can help?

The best way I have found to help others in a difficutl situation is to just be a real friend. When you genuinely care about someone and they can feel it there are often very few things you can do wrong in trying to cheer them up.  As part of this I find that reminding a person they are cared for and telling them why you appreciate them can make a big difference.

 

5)What tips are there to feel gratitude daily?

The best tip that I have to feel gratitude and recognize more things to be grateful for everyday starts with stopping. What I mean by that is that sometimes we get so busy with life that we forget to slow down and recognize some of the amazing things in our life.  It can help to pick a quiet time to just think. Sometimes it helps to make a list of things you are grateful for. I find that shutting off the TV and simply going on a walk can help to clear your mind and reconnect you to the things that make you feel grateful.

 

6)How can this philosophy help you overcome depression?

There are several books and articles that present research that suggests that a regular practice of gratitude can increase your quality of life and help you overcome the effects of negativity and depression. In addition studies demonstrate that a regular practice of gratitude  provides increased energy, alertness, enthusiams and vigor. Gratitude inreases your chances of getting to your personal goals. Gratitude provides better states of mind for coping with stress, closure in traumatic situaitons,greater feelings of self-worth, better relationships, improved cardiac health and clarity of thought. As far as science can determine there are no negative side effects for gratitude.

 

7) Is it possible that some people are so negative that they cannot change?

No matter where a person is in life or what they have experienced they cna make changes for the better. It may not be easy for them as change requires them to let go of their past and beliefs they may have had for a long time. I often use the analogy that change is like trying to hold an ice cub in your hand. It can be uncomfortable and it can take time. But if you have a desire to change it can be done. Does it require help sometimes? Absolutely. The bigger the cahnge or shift the more support that is generally needed. Depending on the scope of the change would determine the size of the help. It may require a few friends or family members all the way to a trained professional. But the good news is that change can happen and there is help available. And the end results can be incredible. You can actually live the life you really want!

 

8) How has gratitude positively affected your life and why did you decide to take on this philosophy?

My life has been incredibly affected by gratitiude. I think in my early twenties I really took a lot of things for granted. I sort of felt like life just owed me and that everything should work out. I didn’t feel I had to put in my own effort and if things went wrong they weren’t my fault. As I learned to take responsibility I found that I also became more grateful. And the more grateful I became the more I realized that I had more control on my outcomes. As I took control of my outcomes I was able to start creating the life I chose. Since that time I have chosen how I really wanted my life to go. I have chosen how much money I have wanted to make, the job that I want to do, the relationships that I have, the cars I drive, the house I live in… everything. Now I admit things do not always go according to plan. But having a plan and recognizing that I am in control have given me more than waiting and wondering for something good to happen by chance. I no longer take things for granted, I take them as gifts and when you treasure what comes to you, you can build on it to create more.
