Personal Power Mastery


Personal Power Mastery is a no-nonsense, experiential growth masterpiece that encourages you to make shifts in your beliefs. Making these shifts will create paradigm shifts in your life. The power thoughts, stories, lessons, exercises and questions to consider presented in this book are inspiring and thought-provoking. This book encourages you to be a doer, not a talker. As Doug shares within the pages of Personal Power Mastery, the concepts in the book are simple to read; however, it’s the doing that will make the difference in the results you will achieve.

It’s amazing what Douglas Vermeeren has created in his life. He’s directed and appeared in three inspiring personal development movies, authored books and series, such as Guerrilla Marketing and Amazing Success. He gets to share his mission and message with rooms filled with people who are perfectly ready to hear his message. Douglas is a walking, talking demonstration of the lessons you’ll learn while reading this book.

Having mentors and inspiring books in your life is good, but more importantly, it’s what you do with the information that will create change. Doug Vermeeren’s life was forever changed by Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, just as mine was. We both learned that repetition and action are what creates a paradigm shift.

In 1961, I met a man named Ray Stanford. I was cleaning offices for a living at that time. He said, “If you do exactly what I tell you, you can have anything you want.” I didn’t really believe that at the time, but I believed he believed it, and I just made the decision I was going to do what he said. It was strange because I had never done that with anyone before in my life. I was always going in the wrong direction, and anybody who had tried to help me was unsuccessful.

One of the things Ray did was give me a copy of Think and Grow Rich and he said, “Read this every day.” That was on October 21, 1961. I’m still reading it every day and I carry it everywhere I go. I also listened every day to Earl Nightingale’s condensed narration of Think and Grow Rich. I couldn’t stop listening to it. The repetition of the positive reprogramming was sure making me feel different.

It wasn’t long before I had earned over a million dollars in one year. It was almost like a self-realization crisis. I thought, How in the heck did this happen? When somebody asked me what I was doing, I would say, “I was cleaning offices.” But there were a lot of people cleaning offices that weren’t doing what I was doing. I also said, “I’m listening to Think and Grow Rich.” There were a lot of people reading Think and Grow Rich – they weren’t doing what I was doing. Then, I thought of all the repetition I had with the book and the recordings. I would listen to the recordings every day; I still do. I still read the book every day, 57 years later. I realized that I had reprogrammed my subconscious mind. I changed my paradigm.

A paradigm is a multitude of habits in the subconscious mind. Our self-image is part of the paradigm, and if that isn’t changed, nothing changes. When it does change, everything changes. It doesn’t change like throwing on a light switch, it’s a process – and through the repetition, everything changes. Once I became clear on why things had changed for me, all I wanted to do was share it with everybody I could. I wanted to teach this to everybody I could reach.

I think Einstein had it down pat. He said that our only purpose being here is to serve. If you’re really locked into that, and all you want to do is help, when you see a person get it, it’s so rewarding.

In this book, you’ll learn about the power of choice, the power of your thoughts, the power of perception and beliefs, the power of change, and the power of mastery. Doing the processes, answering the questions, and more importantly reading this book over and over again will create a shift in your paradigm. Get this information in every form available; repeat the power thoughts over and over again. Repetition is key. I can assure you that if you wear this book out, you will see positive change in your life.

Enjoy the journey,
