How Your Self Talk Affects You Good And Bad!

“Happiness is a left brain function. It is directly tied to what you say to yourself on the inside. Speech is left brain, too. We’re as happy as our self talk is happy and positive. We’re as happy as our thoughts and pictures. We’re as happy as the story we routinely tell ourselves.

We think in pictures more than words. ‘A picture is worth 1000 words’. We make pictures, both inside and outside of our awareness, and describe those images. We also describe what we experience and make internal images.  Words bridge the inner and the outer.

That’s why we create what we think and speak. Importance has been given to our words as a creative force from ancient times. Words are used to describe our mental blueprints. We translate an idea into action, for ourselves and for others, through the words we choose.

What You Say Is What You Get – Control Your Self Talk

The stories we tell ourselves are important. They affect us! We need to tell ourselves better stories if we want our lives to improve. We need to speak more kindly to ourselves, silently and out loud. We need to monitor and improve our self talk, and our talk to others.

You bring about what you think about. What you focus on expands. What you see, say and feel IS what you get. You either reinforce the crap in your life by your thoughts, words and deeds or you make things better by your thoughts, words and deeds. It’s mindset first!

If you’re feeling crappy you’re imagining things as crappy. You’re seeing crappy things inside and out AND saying crappy things to yourself and others. That’s why you feel crappy. You deserve better! You can change all that, by changing what you’re doing inside!

What You See Is What You Get – Visualize Only Positive Good

When you do have positive, mental images and nurturing self talk you feel good. Positive feelings arise. You can also create positive feelings, by making positive mental images and self talk, deliberately. This is called visualization and affirmations. See, speak and hear!

Every day, deliberately imagine what you want for yourself. Imagine the good you desire, as if you already have it. Affirm and declare it with words and your physical energy. Feel it, Be passionate and emotional about it. Enjoy it! Be thrilled and eager. Savor it!

Command yourself to be who and what you want to be. Imagine and feel that. Every day, see it. Command yourself to become that. Affirm that you are it. Declare it done! On the inside, live it. Make it real. Walk it about, live it in daily life. Act as if. Imagine fully. Get it?

What You Feel Is What You Get – Feel Your Best – Act As If

Repeated visualizing and affirming get your mind to work for you instead of you working for it. Make things happen. Get control over those words you already are saying to yourself. Stop talking about what you don’t want. Only affirm what you DO want to reinforce.

PAY ATTENTION to your words. Speak ONLY to bless, heal and prosper. Make them positive. The words you use are powerful, so use them wisely. Use everything you have in a positive and powerful way. Practice gratitude. Be delighted in the process and your progress. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

That One Or Two PerCent!

“You are the creator of your life. Mindset determines what you create. You create based on your thoughts and your feelings. Your actions matter. They are important but not as important as you might think. The key is to work smarter not harder. It’s important.

Many people are busy but not productive. They confuse activity with accomplishment. This is because they focus in the wrong area. They focus on how to do things and what to do rather than the mindset that gives rise to the right, inspired actions. You must get this!

Actions matter not as much as your thoughts, attitude or mindset. Your thoughts and mindset pave the way. It is hard for people to grasp this concept. Your mindset is 98-99% what you need to focus on. Your actions are the 1 or 2% that you do. Pay attention to this.

Your Attitude Determines Your Direction And Your Altitude

What you think creates how you feel. How you feel determines what you think and your actions. What you think, feel and do create your results. The starting point of your results is your thinking. Your mindset. Get that right and the rest falls into place. Get it?

Your mindset is the cause. The results are the effect. Get it, cause and effect? Sadly, when things don’t go right, most people start trying to change the results. They try to change the effect. They get preoccupied with what isn’t working and what to do next. 

Instead of being focused on the effect, you must work on the cause. You must improve the mindset that determines your feelings, actions and therefore your results.  Positive feelings stem from positive thoughts. To change your results change your thinking!

To Guarantee Success Act As If It Were Impossible To Fail

Get it? More positive thoughts stem from the positive feelings. When those are correctly aligned you take inspired action. The actions feel right because they stem from right thinking and great feeling. Actions for action sake doesn’t get you anywhere.

There’s being productive, then there’s being preoccupied. It’s not what you do, it’s what you think and feel that determines how far you go. That’s why Napoleon Hill titled his book, ‘THINK and Grow Rich’, not Work Harder and Grow Rich. Mindset matters most!

This is why I keep suggesting you read and listen to audios. Attend events, live and online. Hang out with mentors, coaches and positive people. Do daily affirmations and visualization. Keep a success journal and practice gratitude. Get the mindset right so you succeed.

Do these things repeatedly, long enough, consistently and then your actions will matter. They will increase the likelihood of your success. You’ll be surprised with the results you will be getting. Actually, you won’t be surprised at all, because you will deliberately create them. Do you get that? Be thankful and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Need To Know About The Dark Times!

“Darkness is necessary for growth, as is sunlight. Everything has a season. Tides come in and go out. Life changes. People change. Nothing is written in stone.  It is all physical, mental and emotional processes. Process implies movement and movement is change.

Never give up. Even if you did nothing at all, ever, you would change. That is nature. That is the nature of life. Everything changes given enough time. Nothing is permanent. Everything is in flux at some level. You may or may not notice it but everything moves. Atoms.

Thoughts are simply those things you think. They are not you. They are something you do from habit. You may not like the thoughts you think much of the time. You may not like the results of your thinking. Still, habits can be changed. You can change your thinking! You!

Energy Isn’t Created Or Destroyed – Energy Is Transformed

Take control. It can be instantaneous, mostly it is by step by step. You change inch by inch, foot by foot, yard by yard, mile by mile. It is incremental. It seems slow at first but it gets faster as you go along. The more you do, the more you are able to do, and more easily.

You get better at it. So, know this: you can, and will, always get through, and beyond, any troubling issue. It may not seem like it but you can, if you decide to. It is difficult to see connections projecting forward. You can’t. You can only connect the dots looking back.

You can’t connect dots looking forward. Moving forward you need to decide, plan, take action and move. You go a far as you can see and when you get there you can see farther. Looking back, you may find the meaning of troubling situations BUT, in reality, all are blessings.

Focus On What You Have To Gain – Not On What You Give Up

Learn to practice gratitude for the past. Be grateful for every bit, all past. You may say, ‘but, but’. BUT do it. Learn to appreciate all the hard, dark, even terrible moments. You got through them. That was then. What did you, what could you, learn from the past?

It is no longer! Don’t carry the baggage from the past. Look back and see it how it brought you to now, this moment, where you can change your thoughts about it, and transform your life for the better. Feel gratitude for the past. Be thankful for the present, this moment.

Feel blessed for all of it, then and now; every moment, person, event and circumstance. Expect to be blessed in the future. Unexpected good will come your way, Feel gratitude for the future. You will be different. That moment passed, this moment, too will pass.

If You Want All Things To Change Faster – Change Yourself

You will always land on your feet. Expect to. Expect unexpected good. Realize, it mostly goes how you think it will; what you think it is. It becomes what you say it is; how you define it determines what you pay attention to. It is the gospel according to you. It’s yours!

What you focus on, you get. Thoughts are things. Still, you can change from negative to positive. You never have to remain stuck. Things change! Learn to think differently about anything. You can learn to feel differently, too. It is whether or not you choose to.

Moving your body, changing your physiology changes your mental and emotional state.  Exercise and hard physical work has been prescribed for depression and anxiety since ancient times. Everything can change, if you are willing. You can make it better.

Whether You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You’re Right 

Move, go for a walk. Change your thinking. Focus on what you want, not on the problems. Practice gratitude. Feel the gratitude. Stay with it. Focus on it, again and again. Read inspiring materials. Surround yourself with positive people and messages. Affirm your power and visualize the good, again and again. It gets better! Especially, when you celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Must Stop Vomiting On People!

“Does what we say matter? Does it matter to others? Does it matter to ourselves? From early times to present there’s a wealth of wise people pointing out that what we say shapes our reality. We think it and then speak it into being. What we talk about we bring about.

What we think about we bring about is an important notion. Recently, at a meeting I attended, a devout Christian stood up and quoted Proverbs 18:20. ‘A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.’

I don’t care whether you believe the Bible or not. That is not the purpose of my posts. Whatever you choose to believe or not, is up to you . Your faith is yours. I simply want to point out what all faiths and new thought leaders and thinkers have pointed out for eons.

Words Are Seeds – Be Careful What You Plant And What You Say

What we think about we bring about. What we say is what we get. The quote above is easily understood as what we say is important. What we repeatedly talk about IS what we think about. It IS what we feel about. It is what we create and experience and attract.

We can’t escape that we are responsible for our situations in life. The stories we tell daily about what happens to us, affect us. Most of us love drama. We want to tell others how we are used, abused, mistreated here, there, on the freeway, in the home and office.

By friends and by strangers; we talk about what we don’t want. We keep that morning commute skirmish alive throughout the day by repeating the tale to all who will listen. ‘Let me tell you what happened to me today!’ Blah Blah Blah we verbally vomit on others.

Life Is A Boomerang – What You Give Out You Get Back

We talk about the banks, big biz and government, gossip and the latest bad news on the internet. Our focus in not on the good we can create. We aren’t talking about how good things are, how easy it is, how beautiful life’s moments are and the many ways we are blessed.

This, however, is what we should endorse and repeat. We should speak only to bless, heal and prosper ourselves and others. Put a guard before your lips. Only command into being those things you want to bring into being! Stop talking about what is wrong!

Start talking about what is right. Practice gratitude and appreciation. Be thankful. Whatever you are talking about YOU ARE thinking about. What you think about you become. Get it? Instead, start feeling blessed and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Not Doing This Literally Robs You Of Your Life!

“Everyday you are being robbed. That absolutely sucks. Has anyone ever taken anything that belongs to you and not returned it. Not good, right? Every single day you are losing out.  Every day you are missing the mark and ending up with far less than you could have.

Each day you lose time. You lose energy. You lose opportunities that bypass you. Have you ever had an idea you thought was great, a money maker, but you didn’t take action on it. Someone else did and they enjoyed great success. Opportunities like that, may come once.

You may be reading the newspapers online and offline, articles on FB and more of the same, daily. You may be posting your displeasure and arguing with others. You may be viewing countless hours of video or attempting to get the very latest breaking news .

What You Read Has The Power To Change You 

You could be gossiping with co-workers and neighbors. Playing online games and gambling. Perhaps, you run down to the casino every few days to try your luck. Perhaps, you are reading trashy romance or popular novels one after the other. It doesn’t matter.

There are lots of ways to spend time.  It is important to feel good. Some things make us feel really good, which IS really good. Other things distract us from feeling not so good. They are ok. They bring pleasure and guilty pleasure but they are a substitute for good.

These distract us from ourselves and from our life. We can never get our time back. Ever! Wasting time robs us! So, how we spend our time, should be a priority for each of us. It is probably an accurate statement, that you could make better use of your time.  Am I right?

Reading Can Change Your Thoughts – Your Words – Your Actions

If you want to change, and transform yourself and your life into the best it can be, then there are things you need to do, that help you do that. One of these is reading. Reading inspirational and motivational books. Not just any book that comes along but some of the classics.

You’d be better served if, daily, you spend your time reading Napoleon Hill, Ernest Holmes, Wallace Wattles, Neville Goddard, David Schwartz, Joseph Murphy, Norman Vincent Peale, Dale Carnegie, and Abraham Hicks. Feed your mind some positivity.

Get some positive nutrition. Don’t get pulled down into the fray, rise above. Do some daily mental conditioning. If you could read for an hour each day that would be wonderful. If you think you can’t, then read whatever you can. 30, 20 15, 10, 5 or even a minute. Get it?

Your Life Does Not Get Better By Chance – You Change It

How you spend your time is crucial to your happiness and success. The more time you spend feeding and conditioning your mind for positive thoughts and enjoying positive feelings, the more positive actions you will take, that lead to positive outcomes and results.

Get it? Read these books and let them inspire you and direct your mind. Why read? Because when you do you use your imagination. You visualize and can picture yourself happy and successful. You affirm. You think, ‘I can do that!’ ‘I will do that!’ You use your mind.

Stop robbing yourself and start caring for yourself. You have to value your time and energy and how you use your mind and feelings.  Put an end to distractions that rob you. Instead, put your mind to good use. You never get back the time you waste! NOW, is the only time.

It Is Important To Think Positive And Feel Good Most Of Your Time

Remember, the more time you put your mind to better use, the more likely you are to get the good results and have the lifestyle you desire. Spend time feeling good. Use your imagination. Affirm your happiness!  You’ll feel happier and more successful as you do.

You’ll get further, faster, when you spend your time, filling your mind daily, with good, positive, reading material. Utilize  this blog as part of your regime. Spend time being inspired and feeling grateful. Practice appreciation for everything in your life. It will change you. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Can’t Get There If You Don’t Know Your Destination!

“You can’t get there if you haven’t set and don’t know your destination. The reason most people don’t accomplish their goals and dreams is because they want to be comfortable. They don’t want to stretch outside their comfort zone. They THINK it is too hard.

Continued from previous blog: People think it takes too much. Their limiting thoughts and beliefs, their excuses, whines and blames keep people the same. If this is you you need to change it up. Nothing will change until you change. The good news is YOU CAN CHANGE!

Yes, it takes some effort. You can’t do nothing and expect it to be different, but, even a small shift, a 1% change over time, can make an incredible difference. All you have to do is open that tiny window of possibility for change and you can. You decide to be different.

Every Day Is An Opportunity To Change Your Life For The Better

Read books. Read inspirational material that is motivational. Feed your mind a positive, healthy, mental diet each day. Walk outside and move your body. Spend some time in nature. Pick some positive affirmations and recite them frequently, with strong positive feeling.

Practice gratitude. Feel blessed. Smile more. Laugh. Even these small changes will make a big difference. Don’t bite off more than you can chew, but realize the more you do, the more you become able to do. Success breeds success and confidence. You can do it. YOU CAN! Learn to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Don’t Ever Let This Stop You!

“Why do most people quit? What makes them quit pursuing their goals and dreams? Somehow, they let a thought stop them. A mental packet of energy. A thought or thoughts that run counter to what they want is enough to prevent them from getting their goals.

Wow! Consider that. A thought stops them! Not any physical giant. Not an army. Not anything in the real world. Most people are stopped by a thought, a worry, or a fear. They don’t think they can succeed. They doubt. So they give up. I mean, really? They quit.

If a thought is that powerful it makes sense then to cultivate positive, powerful thoughts that see you through, doesn’t it? It would be desirable to make oneself unstoppable and invincible. Create the thoughts that propel you forward into your future. Make it happen.

If You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You Are Right

Right? If you can let a thought stop you, you can let one help you. This is called good taste. Good judgement. This is called being wise and acting in one’s own best interest. If you don’t think you can, that IS being stopped by a thought. Change it! Switch to the positive.

Things are always much more possible than you think them to be. Get out of your own way. Create the affirmations and positive declarations. Repeat them with strong emotion until you believe them. It will work! You just have to do it. Fill yourself with gratitude.

Appreciate yourself. Appreciate everything about your life. Be thankful and express it. Think it and speak it. Feel it fully. Start loving your life and approving of yourself. Enjoy and delight. Have fun. Smile more. Love more. Feel thrilled. Feel eager. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
