Absolutely absolute! by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

I am absolutely thrilled about life. I wish I could say that I felt that way everyday and in every way all the time. The truth of the matter is that I get frustrated, hurt and angry sometimes just like everyone else. I am human after all. But I do find that there are several things I can do that keep me more dialled in to my best self and I’d like to share a few of those things:

1)Have a mission, set goals and revisit them often

As I feel like I have a purpose I become on purpose. It’s very difficult to stay frustrated or bummed out when I have something that I am working on. An idle mind imagines and dwells with more problems. When we are busy working at something that excites us we don’t have time or energy to waste.

thAs I regularly revisit those goals I am able to reignite myself and get more on purpose. It’s hard to stay down when you are busy. In addition, by revisiting these goals often I can often see progress (even if it’s it not much) and that motivates me to do more and helps me feel good that I’ve made progress. I’ve consistently found with my students in Personal Power Mastery and confirmed it multiple times in my own life that when we make progress we are most happy.

2)Surround yourself with people who lift you higher.

You’ve heard it said that we become like those we surround ourselves with. And you’ve also heard hat tour income, relationships and habits will gravitate to the five people you spend the most time with. I believe that’s because we rise to the expectations of our peers and we would do more for others than we often are willing to do for ourselves. A great example of this are most mothers I know. They serve everyone around them and are often the last ones to get taken care of. They do more for others than they will do for themselves.

Surround yourself with amazing people and you will rise to an amazing life.

3) Decide what you will tolerate and raise your standards

You get absolutely what you decide your standards are. This not only applies to your finances, relationships, organization, cleanliness and so forth. Yes these are all standards, but this also applies to your thinking as well. You set the standards of what you will allow for your thinking. You can control your thinking to allow certain thoughts to stay. You’ve heard it said that happiness is a choice. So is worthiness. So is confidence. So is contentment. And any other positive thought you wish to have in your life. Set your standards high and put your focus on thoughts that empower you. When you have a thought that doesn’t make you feel good don’t give it space to grow. Dismiss it and remind yourself that it is below your standards of thought.

Stay tuned for more! Until then remember that now is your time! Make it count!

Are you worthy of success? Douglas Vermeeren

Are you worth of Success By Douglas Vermeeren, Creator Of Personal Power Mastery 

As I have taught the Personal Power Mastery seminars and other trainings over the last 10 years a common, but surprising question that appears often again and again revolves around worthiness. Many people struggle with the idea of worthiness and personal value. Often the question has to do with something they either did or failed to do in their past. But more often it is tried to things that others around them (Especially loved ones) have told them about their worth or potential.

Most often the now disabled person has been told that success, wealth, good relationships, positive situations or whatever else they are trying to achieve is not realistic for them. They are somehow different or broken when it comes to creating these outcomes in comparison to other people.

These feelings have often grown within them until they have very conflicting ideas about what they want out of life and what they are truly capable of achieving. They begin to believe the idea that they are somehow something less than everyone else.

Naturally these feelings of doubt, fear and unworthiness are paralyzing. They rob the individual of the ability to work on their most important dreams and goals. Most often they end up in a prison of pain. When you don’t believe you are worth the best things you tolerate and except the less than great. Which often means accepting more pain and frustrating situations and people because that is where you feel accepted and belong.

This is not true. You deserve better and are entitled to better. You are worthy.

The definition of the word worthiness means to have sufficient merit.  Sufficient merit to do what? Success is earned but not in the way most people think.

To attain success you do not appear before a standards board that evaluates your application. There is no one in the “success club” that must approve your membership or welcome you into the group.

To create success requires that you simply work hard and follow a certain set of rules (law of the harvest) which will produce certain results. (We will talk more about these rules in the future. for a quick preview look at my book Guerrilla Achiever.)  But these rules work when you get to work and take action. The rules don’t ask if you are afraid when you act. They don’t judge your past when you act. They don’t ask what others said to you or about you when you act. The only thing that they are concerned about is that when you are acting you are rolling those rules of success.

If you can do that you have all the worthiness that you need.

YOU ARE WORTHY NOW!

The wonderful thing about the journey to success is that your current feelings about yourself change the instant you gain a little momentum. In other words if you feel unworthy just get started. That movement will open your eyes to the true possibilities of who you may become and light will enter into your life and destroy the darkness of self-worry. JUST GET STARTED!

A second aspect of feeling worthy is also worth pointing out. It might be time for a friend or connection upgrade. We often takes our cues of what we are capable of by those we spend the most time with. We often believe the advice of those around us because we look for validation from our peers. Because of that we are not just living in our own comfort zones and with our own fears, but we are operating within the shadow of the comfort zone and fears of those we spend the most time with.  In other words who you spend time with is truly shaping your destiny. If who you are spending time with is limiting you – LEVEL UP!

Much of this will affect our feelings of worthiness immediately.

A caution to single people. You may think you are just fine hanging out by yourself or online in social media and that you don’t have any negative interactions with real people so the feelings of unworthiness or lack of high motivation isn’t attached to others. Actually it maybe. Studies have shown that isolation is also a contributor to depression, feelings of unworthiness or complacency. find good people to start surrounding yourself with and get out there.

Now is your time – Make it count!
