Personal Power Mastery minute – Your future is determined by what you do NOW!

leave a comment »

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power Mastery 180

Often times people talk about how they would like their life and future to look. Where things go amiss is when they fail to connect that future with the present. The key to creating a better future is to decide what you will do today to bring that future. Decisions are the hinge that either make or break the connection to your ideal future. But too often people make their decisions based on what they are currently experiencing rather than what they want. Decisions create future, not the present. You are already in the present.

So next time you say “I can’t because of… (lack of money, lack of connection to people, opportunities, things, knowledge, etc.) recognize that the only thing that can possibly change your future is to simply DO IT anyways.

Your decisions of today are the only thing that will give you something better tomorrow.

A decision now may require you to stretch and grow. But one thing is certain if you always do what you have always done you will always get what you’ve always gotten. Nothing will change. You can’t repeat the same patterns and expect different results.

If you want more money = you must make a new decision.

If you want more opportunity = you must make a new decision.

If you want better relationships = you must make a new decision.

All things can be improved and changed for the better if you decide. Decisions lead lives.

What will you decide today?

Personal Power Mastery Minute – Are you in flow for success?

leave a comment »

PPM seriers 2-1

All growth requires your expansion. If you want better relationships, more abundance, bigger results at work or in your business… or whatever it is you are looking to grow and improve it’s going to start with you. You can’t expand what is around you until you are bigger and better. Growth requires new perspectives, new skills and new understanding. Positive change is always a result of positive preparation.

If you think about it its pretty obvious to see the importance of expansion. Even the universe is in a constant state of expansion and has been since the beginning of the Big Bang. Anything that is not expanding is by nature contracting and as a result fighting against the entire universe.

In other words, when we hold back from growth and expansion we are in fact fighting against the entire universe. Expansion is the direction for everything. Are you in line with the movement?

I hope so. It is a decision to do so. It has been interesting to observe that both expansion and contraction take work. There is a significant amount of effort required to dig in your heels and resist growth. It is not easy to stay the same in a world that is ever changing. But some people choose to stay put.

As a result they end up doing more work and fighting an uphill battle more frequently. We all know people who end up repeating serious life lessons again and again because they refuse to learn. We have all seen people in financial or relationship troubles because they keep repeating poor patterns without improvement. These same people often seek out immediate gratification (with no long term benefits or power) or they would prefer to relax and lazily watch others progress.

Expansion and growth on the other hand open doors of possibility. Yes, there is work involved. But it is easier because you moving with the flow rather than against it.

So here’s the question, What are you doing today to expand?

The true definition of Passive Income freedom – By Douglas Vermeeren, #1 Passive Income Coach

IMG_0743

Too often passive income gets a bad rap because everyone thinks those creating it are just out to make some money for themselves and then sit on a beach somewhere. Recently y students proved once again that this is not the case.

I was so proud to see that so many of our students have understood that the true purpose of wealth is ultimately to bless the lives of other people too.

Passive income isn’t just about making your own life easier and gaining your own freedom. In the truest sense it is about liberating all within our influence and seeking to extend that influence wherever we go. True freedom and joy come as we are able to create abundance beyond our immediate circumstances.

I am grateful agin to my students who are taking the lead to demonstrate in the world the true meaning of abundnace and a passive income lifestyle. Thank you!

Creating the outcomes you want – Personal Power Mastery by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

The reason why most people are not successful is that they either wait until they feel inspired, in the mood or excited enough to do something to get to work doing what they need to do to get what they want. Or they wait for the opposite feelings of pain, regret, guilt or remorse to come to spur them work. Top achievers and those who are successful actually get to work by choice not as a result of feelings or reactions to something outside themselves or around them. That is the definition of proactivity. To be successful you must be a self starter regardless of what is going on around you or how you feel. #douglasvermeeren #ppm #personalpowermastery #success #goalsetting #achievement #personaldevelopmentDouglas Vermeeren Personal Power MAstery 193

One of the first things you should do to improve your speaking career in 2017 – Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

One of the first things you should do to improve your speaking career in 2017

Douglas Vermeeren, The Speaking Business Multiplier

When it comes to a new year everyone is thinking about fresh beginnings, resolutions and setting goals for how they want their life and business to look in the upcoming year. most of the speakers that I come into contact with are setting goals about how many stages they’d like to speak on, which new products they are going to launch, maybe even declaring goals to speak in far away countries that they’ve never visited yet and many are even thinking about how they will increase their income. While these are all valuable and exciting things to think about there is something that I think will help build your speaking business more than any other business goal, product launch or world tour…

Would you like to know what it is? If you’ve been following me for any length of time you know how I believe that the foundation of everything in your speaking business will come back to creating powerful content.  But there is a part of creating powerful content that is often overlooked. If you get this part right then everything else in your speaking business, including the content will come together more easily and all the goals that you’ve been thinking about will fall more easily into place. Well, enough of the suspense. Here it is:

You need to get talking to your audience. In specific you need to connect with individuals in your audience. You first goal will be to discover what challenges they are currently struggling with and which ones they foresee coming in the year. You need to be able to identify how you can best be of service and how your skills, knowledge and tools will best benefit the marketplace.

Some of the key ways I do this in my business are the following:

11219646_10153683373454804_2387624971824876664_n

1)I start with my most profitable and loyally clients. Those that are most profitable for you and most loyal are the audience members you want to keep with you. They are also the kind of people you want to duplicate in your business. It’s a simple reflection of the Pareto principle or the 80/20 rule. You don’t need to or ant to serve everyone. You need to find and nurture those who are best positioned to help your business grow. By focusing on the leaders in your tribe you can get the best sense of the needs of the tribe. Your leaders are dialled in and as pioneers they know what’s really going on. If you haven’t identified them that’s your first bit of homework. You need to explore such questions as:

What are their goals for 2017?

What were the biggest challenges of 2016? And what are you doing about it?

What changes are happening for you that will effect your marketplace?

Who are the emerging leaders this year in your industry? Why?

What are the important issues facing you and your business this year?

What is the new products, services and tools you are bringing to market?

What will you need to learn to do that successfully?

What efforts worked really well last year that you will duplicate again?

What efforts did not work?

Naturally these seem like very business oriented connections and I’m sure many of my students who are more focused on the healing arts and heartfelt teachings are thinking that these questions will never work with my people. That may be true but you can always create variations of these questions. Especially when working with individuals who are trying to gain clarity to begin with.

Even those in the healing modalities have clear goals and can identify many of the needs they are trying to solve.

Back to the business conversation for a second. I have found that my top students that I want to interview appreciate these kinds of explorative conversations and questions a lot. In fact, when I am asking for the interview I position it as a strategy session where they will gain and at the same time I am able to do my research.

2) Survey the group. In addition to one on one conversations to discover what my top students are wanting to learn and receive support with I share a survey with my first few audiences of the year and often I will even send out the survey to those in my database. (I actually create a contest for people to get them back to me.) The surveys work really well.

Here’s an example on one I use:

I find that by using a survey especially at the beginning of my events has been very valuable. In addition to helping me gather information it also works as a teaching to tool to get my students thinking about things they need in their business. (But that’s another conversation) For now I want to point out something which you’ve already discovered by a quick look through. It gives me an idea of what students want to learn more about, what they’ve spent over the last while, what they are willing to spend and more. I encourage you to create your own surveys to use to get to know your audience better.  (By the way if you go to my Youtube channel there is a really short video on some additional benefits of using a survey. Check it out.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ3FpuXGieM )

3)Talk to your competitors. This may sound crazy but one of the most valuable tools I use in understanding my audience is to look at what my competition is doing and also talk with them. I have a relatively positive relationship with nearly all of my competitors and the one thing I have noticed without variation is that they love to talk about their business and tell me what their doing. Maybe its a feeling that they want to let me know they are smarter than me, doing better than me, more unique than me or whatever. That’s okay. I love them telling me about what they are up to and often it confirms I am on the right track or gives me new ideas or reveals things that they may be missing that I can take advantage of. I am sure they feel the same way that I do when they talk with me. I don’t want this paragraph to sound like I am trying to be engage in corporate espionage. Truthfully these discussion are often more of a collaboration that an investigation. But I am always paying very close attention. How are your relationships with your competitors? If you are afraid to boldly call them up at least add them as friends on Facebook and you can see what they are doing.

(And I never worry about competition because MASTERY = MONOPOLY and I know most of the other people training speaking are doing other stuff on the side. That’s the secret of why I’m getting such high rating everywhere. This is ALL I focus on. )

All in all the purpose of this post is to really help you understand the importance of dialling into the conversation of what your audience really wants, what’s happening in your marketplace and to help you recognize any areas you should be focusing on this year. If you can uniquely fill a void, deliver high value and service your audience better than anyone else all the other stuff that I spoke about in the first paragraph of this article most speakers thinking about will fall into place.

Douglas Vermeeren – Focus on what we can Influence.

leave a comment »

What we focus on is what we see. When it comes to creating our ideal life or even an improved life focus is the key to making things better. What we focus on we can improve. Or in the language of the Personal Power Mastery training “What you own you can change.” Your focus determines you feeling and if you chose to focus on things you cannot change all you will create is frustration.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 29This is not a call to ignore difficult things that need to be dealt with. There is a difference awareness, being responsible and dealing with negative challenges and focus. Focus is where we direct our attention and put our mental resources.

Often  those who experience consistent negative results experience this because their constant focus is on things they have no control over. When our sense of well beings is based on situations, people or things that we have no power over we are destined to become let down. When we have expectations of outcomes that do not or cannot happen we are let down and frustrated.

Proactive, success people recognize that their focus and efforts should primarily rest on things they can change and as a result the things they cannot change do change. Even if it is just in the matte rod how they are perceived. Changing focus actually changes everything.

Think of it like trying to move a mountain. If you are standing up agains the mountain and trying to push it to move. It is something you cannot influence and no matter how much you push at the base of the mountain it will never move. Yet if you focus on what you can influence like for example hiring the construction crew to start removing rocks, in time you can even move the mountain. I believe this is in part what is meant when it is talked about having the faith to move mountains.
