Do This To Start Succeeding More Quickly

“There is another reason why you might not succeed as quickly and as easily as you could. Most of us, at one time or another, have been guilty of this. In order to move forward most swiftly, you have to be willing to do somethings that seem counterintuitive, at times.

Stop trying so hard! Stop trying at all. This doesn’t mean you abandon your goals or give up.  You stay true to your ‘definite chief purpose’. You continue to be passionate about it. It stays a ‘white hot burning desire’ but you stop over thinking. You stop struggling.

You let go. Start trusting. Start having peace. Become certain about making it happen. After all, if it is going to happen at all, you are going to be the one making it happen. Trust yourself. Believe. Have faith. Trust your resourcefulness. Know in your heart you can do it.

Trust Is A Decision You Make – Allow Things To Happen – Trust

Expect the best. Let go of worry. Stop trying to figure it out!  Relax. Listen to the still small voice within. Follow your gut. This all comes about by taking charge of your thinking. The results you get and the inspired actions you take come from managing your mindset.

Be positive. Affirm. Stop speaking about your problems and worries. Begin speaking about making it happen. You don’t need to know the details but you do need to expect it will happen. That is faith. Be enthused. Be eager. Have some fun. Play, delight, enjoy the process.

Don’t furrow your brow. Smile more. Laugh more. Put an end to the struggle. Commit to ease. Do little things that move you ahead. Take some action. It need not be massive. Get into the gratitude habit. Enjoy the process. Be glad for the learning and the challenge. Count it all a blessing and you will move ahead more. Get out of your own way! Celebrate everything.”

ENJOY!

How You Can Change Habitual Filters To See More Clearly

“Do you know what a filter does? It allows some things through while capturing or not permitting other things through. Think, coffee filter. Water passes through it, releasing the coffee, but preventing the grounds. Grounds are trapped, but you still enjoy the coffee.

We all have filters. We have chronic old habitual filters that prevent us from seeing what is actually there. From these we live out beliefs and thoughts and values we adopted, as our own, from the others around us, while growing up. Some of these filters served us well.

All of the filters serve us. However, not all would be those one might consider desirable. We miss abundance and see lack. We miss love and see hate. We miss the smiles of the day and only see frowns. We miss all the good things and focus, instead, on the bad news.

A Pessimist Sees The Difficulty In Every Opportunity

We live from mental and emotional habits. Chronic, automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may hold us back from getting what we want. We miss opportunities as a result. The goods news is we can always change habits if we want to and are willing to.

You replace an old habit with a new one, the same way the original habit was built. You expose yourself to the concepts, feelings and behaviors repeatedly, for a long enough duration, until the new habit takes hold. Once it does you are on your way to new ways of being.

Research indicates it takes a minimum of 21 days of consistent repetition, or practice, of the new thought, emotional or behavioral habit to begin to take hold. 3 weeks that isn’t that long. Of course, it is just the beginning, but really that is pretty cool. Short, too.

An Optimist Sees The Opportunity In Every Difficulty

3 weeks from now you could be on your way to a new you. You could think, feel and behave more how you want to. You could be, do and have anything different you want.  You can transform yourself into a whole new you. Perfect practice makes perfect. Get it?

So what do you want? What could you begin to practice right now, that would make you that better you? What could you begin to imagine, and Act As If, you already have it, that you could rehearse again and again in your mind? What could you make real inside?

Think on this? What is your greatest passion and desire? What do you want more of? Careful now, I didn’t ask what don’t you want, I asked what do you want more of? Why do you want it? What will having that do for you? Can you imagine how life would change?

To Hell With Circumstances – I Create Opportunities

Clarify what you want. It is okay if you said, ‘I don’t want to smoke.’ Just remember, that you want to focus on what you want. ‘I want to be healthier’. You can make it as specific as you can. ‘I want to be able to walk a block easily’. Write down specifically what you want.

Focus on what you want a couple times a day. Close your eyes and imagine already living it. You already have it. It is yours and you are it. From this vantage point feel how it feels to have your greatest desire. Celebrate and accentuate the good feelings. Enjoy it.

Spend a few minutes. 5 at least. Visualizing and affirming. Then go about your day. Remember to focus on what you want as often as possible throughout the day. Write it on a card and carry it with you. Take it out and read it during the day. Before bed, repeat imagining.

You Can’t Live A Positive Life With A Negative Mind

Do this consistently with positive emotions until you make it yours. What you are doing is informing your subconscious mind this is what you intend to make happen. Once your subconscious gets the message it begins aligning your inner resources to make it happen.

It begins working for you. It begins to filter out the useless distracting stuff in favor of opportunities. You become aware of people, events and circumstances that would be beneficial in helping you bring about your great desire. Your brain works for you!

You begin to intuit right choices, and notice things you previously wouldn’t have. It is all because you powerfully focus on what you want to include in your life. Your brain finds the way to do that for you. You supply the message until it gets the message and takes over.

Rule Your Mind Or It Will Rule You – What You Focus On Expands

All the while express gratitude for this ability and the opportunity to make your desires come true. Anything and everything you can find to appreciate, do so. Make a daily list. Affirm and be grateful. Express it silently and verbally. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper.

The more thankful you are for everything, the more you allow more things in. You stop filtering out all the good you have previously missed out on. You, now begin noticing it and receiving it. You allow and accept more incredible moments into your life. Get it?

This is how it all works. Affirm, visualize and repeat your great desire long enough to make it a habit. Sincerely and joyously give thanks and more good comes your way. You make it happen from the inside to the outside. You create your reality. Your brain filters in ways that serve you the best. So, go get what you want. In the meantime, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Tony Robbins Is Wrong! Research Shows Positivity Affects Your Health

Does positivity help you to be healthy? What does research indicate? Can happy thoughts lead to a happy body? If it were true you could influence your health by thinking differently would you? John Hopkins University research indicates it makes a difference.

Filling your mind with happy, positive thoughts is a quick way to health. It may be the fastest road to good health. This is why it’s important to read positive materials, listen to positive audios, and think positively consistently. It helps keep you healthier.

This is why your daily rituals should include positive affirmations, visualization, hanging out with other positive people and making the effort to think and feel better. Tony Robbins is wrong, positive thinking is not thinking, ‘there are no weeds, there are no weeds’.

Go 24 Hours Without Complaining Notice How Your Life Improves

Positive thinking doesn’t mean you ignore less difficult situations. Positive thinking means that you approach circumstances in a more positive and productive way. You think or expect the best will happen, not the worst. You determine to make things work out.

The Mayo Clinic reported the maintaining positive thoughts and self talk leads to an increased life span, lower rates of depression and distress. It leads to greater resistance to colds, better psychological and physical well being and better cardiovascular  health .

It also helped people have better coping skills during times of stress and hardship. The Mayo Clinic suggested people learn to manage their self-talk. This is our inner auditory thoughts. Instead of getting down on ourself and life we manage our thinking to be the best.

Always Begin And End The Day With Positive Thoughts 

We can practice this and make positivity a habit. Whenever we become aware we are thinking or speaking silently or out loud less than gloriously we stop and correct it. Instead of saying, ‘I could never do that’ we switch it to, ‘I could do that.’

It is important that we believe our thoughts too so we may need to get there in steps. If you doubt you could do that you can work your way there by saying, ‘I could learn to do that. Given the opportunity I could begin to learn to do that. I can learn to do that.’ Get it?

‘I will learn to do that. I can do that’. It is up to you how you traverse this mental pathway but you select the thoughts that move you forward bit by bit. Positive thinking can be powerful and really make a difference for you in your life. Spend more time thinking good.

Positive Anything Is Better Than Negative Nothing – Be Positive

Then you will spend more time feeling good. A great way to think better is to appreciate more of yourself, life and those people, circumstances and things around you. Most of what makes us feel good and makes us truly rich are free; family, friends, the world.

Notice the beauty of the world, the taste of your food, the time spent having fun and express your gratitude for these. Spend more time thinking better, appreciating yourself and life and you’ll spend more time feeling good. That is reason enough to celebrate everything.” Rex Sikes

Enjoy your day. Stop and appreciate all the goodness around you. If you don’t immediately see it, look for it until you find it. It is always there. Be grateful for wherever you are on your journey. Help put a smile on someone else’s lips too. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Today’s Collected Wisdom To Keep In Mind

horizons-what-kind-of-world-do-you-want-phil-koch

“Every morning, we should set our day at the beginning. Use this valuable time to put on a positive mindset and greet the day. This has great practical value. It helps us to focus on what we want to accomplish and sets the frame for the day.

How we begin the race determines how we may end the race. Not always, but enough of the time to realize, how we start can determine how we follow through. Emerson said, ‘Do the thing and and you will have the power.’ Create positive morning rituals.

These rituals become positive supportive habits. A great ritual to develop along with morning affirmations and physical movement is to read some or listen to some positive audios. Here are some uplifting quotes to help send you on this day. Enjoy and remember.

A Flower Doesn’t Compete With Other Flowers It Simply Blooms

‘Every morning is a new page in the story of your life. You are creating your life every moment. Think wisely about the day you want to create for yourself.’ Jenni Young

‘Declare I am blessed and talented. All things are coming my way and working together for my good.’ Sandi Krakowski

‘Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.’ Lisa M. Hayes

‘When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.’ Napoleon Hill

Be Optimistic It Feels Better – You Get What You Focus On

‘When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.’ Helen Keller

‘The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to become.’ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Another fantastic way to begin the day is in gratitude. Remember those people, things, events and situations you are grateful for. Make it a point to appreciate where you are in your journey. You are where you are so feel blessed and grateful. When you do you open the doors for more wonderful possibilities. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
