Get to Work – Douglas Vermeeren

In 2006 the most misunderstood personal development movie in the world came out. That’s right I’m talking about The Secret. With the movie appeared a concept many people had never hear of before “The Law of Attraction” became the hot topic of conversations everywhere. While I am a firm believer of the law of attraction it quickly became evidently clear that most people had the wrong idea of what it was and what was required to activate the law.

One of the more memorable experiences that I had was with a friend of mine. After just learning about the Law of Attraction he told me how he was going to test it out by using it to acquire a brand new Ferrari. Long story short, after meditating, hoping and wishing for his Ferrari something happened. I’ll never forget the day he invited me for lunch to show off his Ferrari. As I sat at the table across from him he pulled out the business card for his new assistant whose last name was Ferrari. It had arrived but not in the way he expected.

It was a valuable lesson. we can’t leave what we want out of life to a wish, want, dream or regular thinking. Those things are important.But without the element of work focused on a specific outcome you have very little control over what arrives in your life.

The Law of attraction requires us to have strong feelings around what we want to attract and then do everything in our power to bring it about.

As I interviewed more than 400 of the worlds top achievers I saw this formula at work again and again. Each of these top achievers possessed a highly emotional commitment to what they wanted to achieve and then they worked harder, longer, more constantly and consistently than everyone around them to make that goal happen.

If you want to be a success you will have to do the same.

Decisions and the power to change everything – BAM#11

Decisions and the power to change everything – BAM#11
By Douglas Vermeeren

You are just a new decision away from new possibilities in your life. All things change in the moment of decision. Many people recognize this truths yet very few people make real decisions to start living the life they’d prefer and feel they deserve. Why is that? And for those that do attempt to make a new decision why is it that they have so much difficulty making those decisions stick?

One of the definitions I like regarding decision is that it is a conclusion drawn after consideration. So if now is the time you’d like to bring some of the less desirable situations in your life to a conclusion this article is for you.

Here are 3 tips to keep in mind when deciding to move forward on what you want in life.

1)What you expect you get. As you embark on this new decision you need to expect to succeed. You need to expect that people and things will fall into line to help you. You need to expect that when things get difficult you will find a way through and you will succeed. Expecting tough moments and preparing ahead of time mentally is important. Most people stop trying to achieve their goals because they hit a difficult moment. Expect that those moment will arrive and have a strategy for breaking through. (More on strategies later.)

2)Decisions are not decisions until they have action attached. When action is attached to a decision it gains momentum. As you begin to move forward and take a step into the unknown the universe conspires to help you. Action always has consequence and bold action towards good things always comes with reward.

Your mind also recognizes the forward movement into action and develops confidence that you will actually achieve what you decided to do.

In our Personal Power Mastery seminar we talk about the importance of consistent progress. If you add new and regular activities that take you in the direction of your decision you will stay motivated to continue forward. People are happiest when they are progressing and there is a lot of strength gaining if you recognize your progress towards what you’ve decided to do. In the seminar we encourage our students to have 5 action steps towards their decision each day.

3)Own the future destination of your decision in the present tense. How we think determines ultimately what we believe and will take action on. If your decision is to achieve the goal of becoming a top sales person in your company you have got to begin by saying to yourself that you are worthy to be there today. You have got to see yourself as the person who has accomplished this goal.

More important that what other people say to us is what we say to ourselves. There is an ancient saying attributed to the Samurai which says that, “When we conquer the enemy within, no enemy from without can destroy us.” While it is true that others may encourage or discourage us their words have limited power until we decide to repeat them to ourselves with certainty.

Your words must support this. You’ll have to eliminate all fluffy conversations where you say, “I’d like to…” “I hope to…” “I should…” “I could…” “I Would…” You need to start thinking and speaking in terms of “I am.”

Here’s one bonus idea that can be added to this point. In the Personal Power Mastery seminars we call it the law of probability. If you want to achieve the decisions you make quickly and in the most powerful lasting way possible you need to surround yourself with the people and knowledge that will make it more likely you will reach that destination. This also includes often getting to knew locations and activities.

The reasons why so few people get to live the life of their dreams is not that they abstain from making difficult decisions. It’s actually the easy ones that they don’t make. Rather than choose the life they want they accept the situation they are in. And nothing changes.

Go get what you want today. It’s a new day and a new opportunity!

Does Meditation Increase stress?

Does Meditation Increase stress?

By Douglas Vermeeren

Often we hear regularly in our world that to think effectively we need to slow down and make our thoughts become still. We are told that as we learn techniques like mediation we will be able to become more in touch with our thoughts and they will become more productive. This is not entirely true.

 

While meditation has high value for your productive thinking processes it is only one kind or style of deliberate thought that our mind needs to cultivate for functioning at high levels.

 

In addition to mediative thinking there are two other productive thinking states I’d like to touch on, creative and constructive thinking. In the same way we bring out our different personalities in certain social settings, we also switch gears between different thinking styles depending on what a specific situation requires.

 

The Mediative Mode of Thinking – Mediative thinking is generally considered the kind of thinking that puts your mind at ease. While it can put a mind at ease research has demonstrated that it is not necessarily the mode of thinking that relieves the most stress. 1. In fact, research has demonstrated the opposite that often times when we are left to think on the problems of the moment they grow.

 

Example: A friend of mine who suffered a relationship breakdown and then a divorce confirmed that as she was left alone to think about what was going on it was near impossible to still her mind. In fact, the quiet moments often caused the intensity of her negative thinking to grow.

 

Depending on the current circumstances in your life mediation and being still is actually dangerous. (If you want to know where the true relief from stress comes, keep reading.)

 

Often those teaching mediation describe the most successful state of meditation is to think of nothing at all. It’s a lot harder than it sounds. The mind is always on a quest to solve, sort, prepare and repair. Clear thoughts won’t come until the mind has cleaned off the space to do so.

When the mind is clear and stable, meditation then becomes a very powerful tool. Mediation will allow us to reattach ourselves to the values, beliefs and feelings that are most important to us.

 

Meditation does have its place in building strong thinking. Generally this mode is also considered the recharge mode. It is where our empty cup is prepared to receive more. But if the cup is already full with significant problems it multiplies what is in the cup to overflowing.

 

When we are ready to receive more it comes most often through the next stage of deliberate thinking…

 

The Creative Mode of Thinking – When we are relaxed and feel safe, our mind begins to explore possibilities for our present and future. In a relaxed state our mind makes no judgements about what it is possible, it explores whatever it is drawn to. This is where much of our inspiration comes from.   Creativity has a certain liberating energy about it that can lift an individual to new levels of satisfaction.  Creative thinking is also employed every time we recognize a challenge or problem and begin to search for the solution in a spirit of hope. If we look at a problem in a negative way it becomes paralyzing and creative thought is stifled.  All problems are in fact invitations to creativity.   But the creativity only grows in an environment of hope.

 

Creation is our minds way of finding a path where there was nothing before and the method it uses to make sense of things which are otherwise disorganized.

 

All problems we encounter are really puzzles. Creativity is where we find the solutions.

 

When our mind becomes excited about creative possibilities it begins to look for a way to make them happen in real life…

 

The Constructive Mode of Thinking – The Constructive Mode of Thinking deals with the strategies, plans and organization to create the thoughts into reality. We begin to formulate the actions that will bring the thoughts into a tangible reality in our world.

 

The research demonstrates that this mode of thinking is in fact where most of our stress is relieved. As we get busy and engage our brain in tasks in the current moment our worries are put on pause. Our subconscious mind sorts them out while our conscious mind gets out of the way. The key to stress relieve or stilling the negative thinking in your mind is to get busy occupying your mind with a task that requires your thinking.

 

As we talk further about the process of how thoughts become things in the movie we will return to discuss more of this essential thinking mode.

 

Each of these modes is necessary. We can’t expect to have results if we spend all of our time in the mediation mode any more than to expect results if we spent all our time in the creative mode. Each of these modes are necessary and each are interconnected. You cannot fill the cup with creativity, unless it has been prepared in meditation and it cannot be prepared in meditation unless it has been emptied out in constructive thinking.
