What Will You Do? The Future Is In Your Hands

“‘The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken’. This quote has been ascribed to many through the centuries and has been repeated by Warren Buffet, one of the wealthiest men alive. It is worth paying attention to.

He says, ‘what matters most is the kind of person you are’.  So be sure to develop the best habits. Habits will rule you. Make sure you choose wisely those that rule you. Don’t be a servant to habits that hold you back, keep you down, negative, broke and unhappy.

Habits are formed, not at all at once, but gradually through repeated conditioning. Most of our habits evolve without us being aware they are evolving.  Unless we remain alert and aware there is a great possibility you will discover yourself with numerous ‘bad’ habits.

Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill – Skill Comes Of Doing

“You can transform yourself into the person you want to be, but you have to decide early,” says Buffet. At any age you can transform yourself by the decisions you make. When you decide to let go of the ‘bad’ habits and make good ones, you can and you will. It takes will!

Through the same process habits were formed, you will make new ones, but this time with awareness and choice. You will use repetition of behavior, correct behavior, consistently, for long enough, until the new habit, the new neural pathways, takes hold.

This requires dedication, will-power, awareness, correction and persistence. You must persist until the new ones lock in. You can’t dabble. You can’t do some today and then next week, then two days and then a month later. It can’t be random engagement. Get it?

Start Where You Are With What You Have –  Begin Today

You persist daily and see it through to the end. It may be frustrating but it is worth it. Only 2% of people ever do enough to master their mindset, feelings and behaviors to get the results they want that translate into great wealth or happiness! Most remain victims.

98% remain victims to their habitual thinking of lack, worry, fear and negativity. They remain victims to their feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, sadness and worthlessness. They remain victims to inaction, poor decision and procrastination. Time to stop it now!

You can change yourself from loser to winner, from victim to victor, when you repeatedly apply positive principles and practices long enough to make them positive, powerful, and reliable success habits. If you want to badly enough you will find a way!

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You – You Can’t Escape It

If you don’t you will find excuses. 98% do! 98% find excuses and blame others and outside circumstances. They are not in charge of their success. The default to failure through bad habits. So, what will you decide to do? The future is in your hands! The choice is yours right now. Transform yourself. Begin today. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

New Neural Habits And Old Feelings!

“Recently, I wrote about positive and negative feelings last only about 90 seconds. These findings are current science. The sensations last 90 seconds. We keep the feelings alive by how we talk to ourselves, think about it, imagine in our mind afterwards.

It is what we do from habit  that keeps them going. For most of us it is not a problem when we have good feelings. Unless, they’re too fleeting. Most of us have problems with feeling bad. We’ll continue to have issues  until we learn new habits that promote well being.

One of the reasons it seems as if we have no choice when it comes to our feelings is because we habitually react to the electro-chemical stimulation. We react the same way we learned and were conditioned to react. It is habit. Our habits drive us and keep us.

Skill Comes Of Doing – Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill

We don’t do habits consciously. Good or bad, a habit is something we mastered subconsciously, non-consciously, that we now find ourselves doing. We discover ourselves doing something, usually after it starts. We become aware of it after we engage in it. Get it?

We realize we have been biting our nail, as an example, or we smoked that cigarette we declared we wouldn’t We engage the behaviors and act the same way , automatically, reliably, because we have gotten competent at it. It is what we do. Our habits ARE us!

We can learn new habits. We can create a gap, find a pause, and choose to respond differently. We can re-condition ourselves for success, for positive new habits, and get different behaviors and results, instead of doing what we always did habitually.

Eliminate Non-Supportive Habits – Develop Supportive Ones

YES, we can learn new habits. It is simple, but requires awareness, and persistence. We do the new behaviors consciously, correctly, consistently, repeatedly, for long enough until it becomes the new habit. We overwrite the old neural pathways and create new pathways.

Eventually, we master the new habit and we no longer think about it or choose to do it consciously. It becomes automatic and reliable just like the old one was. We can learn to do anything we put our mind to. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Can Do About Bad Feelings And Emotions

“Positive and negative feelings only last about 90 seconds. We keep the feelings alive after the sensations pass by how our self- talk, think about it, or imagine in our mind. What we do keeps it going, from habit. We will continue to until so we learn new habits.

Promote well being. We tend to let good feelings go too soon and let negative feelings linger longer. Time to learn to stop doing that. Savor the wonderful and let go of the less than  glorious. It is a talent or skill you can absolutely learn how to develop when you know how. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Don’t Get Sucked In Or Distracted By Nefarious Forces

“Something very important to notice. Bad news is rare. That is why it is reported. It is the exception to the good that goes on. Bad news sells. People buy it. Bad news sells for this reason. People love gossip and road kill. It is a rating game. Still, bad news is rare!

Bad news is the manipulation of your mind whether intentional or not. If you think bad news is real then you have been drinking the sugary flavored drink. Good news abounds but no one reports the good news because it is common. It doesn’t sell. Bad news does.

There is a volcano. It makes the news. WHY? Because  it doesn’t happen all the time. It is rare by comparison. Get it? The less something happens the higher the signal value. So media looks for all the bad news it can find because it means ratings and more profits.

The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think – Learn To Think Well

That is the business they are in. Selling bad news. Actually, selling commercial products. How can you tell you’ve been brainwashed? You buy all the bad news and the breath, hair, body products, designer logo clothing and goods. People are walking billboards.

People are walking commercials for corporations and the news media. We wear it and we share it. We gossip about it and brag about it. Still, all the bad news pushed on us pales by all the unreported good news! Still, we’re influenced and feel bad.

We watch or read the news and then think everything is bad.  Advertising convinces us we are stinky, foul, flakey, humans in need of more products to eliminate our ‘humaness’ so we buy the ‘right’ clothing and advertise their brands for them as walking billboards!

Learn To Vet And Verify – Seek Accurate Information – End Gossip

News influences us to be worried, angry, intolerant and scared. We give in. Because news and advertising is relentless in all forms of media, music, movies, TV, cable, streaming, books, magazines, online social media, clothing, food products we succumb to its influence.

We can’t escape it.  It is repeated endlessly 24/7. There is no escape from it any more than there is escape from all the microwaves and radio waves and gamma waves in the atmosphere. We are in it. We can limit it but can’t shut it out. The onslaught surrounds us.

We are influenced by the pessimistic thoughts and speech of others. Family, friends, strangers all influence us. We get caught up. We must realize it is not as it appears. The picture being painted is for profit and power. We willingly buy into it. We give our minds away.

We’re Surrounded By Forces That Attempt To Disable Us – Notice

We buy into it because we have grown up in it. As a fish doesn’t notice the water, we don’t notice the propaganda. We do live in an Orwellian world. We are facing some difficult times in the U.S. and around the globe. We must become aware of the influence on us.

If we don’t become aware of our own past conditioning, and the ongoing inculcation, we will be the worse off. We need to wake up. Some will and some never will. Some will believe, no matter what, the lies being told. It’s easier to convince a stump than some people.

They’ll believe the advertising, the news, the political agendas. Some will tune out and become apathetic because of the onslaught. Since, we are overwhelmed continuously we need to claim our minds back. Then we won’t be as susceptible as we’ve been. We may wake up.

Become Aware – Your Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes

Because of the chaos, confusion and distraction from what we could and should, be paying attention to some will tune out, give up and do nothing. They will become apathetic. They’ll refuse to notice. They are unaware of the consequence. They’ll miss and lose out.

Then, only those who believe the news will act. They’ll support choices that go against their own interests because they’re being conditioned to do so every minute of the day. Make sure you don’t go numb from this all mind-numbing. Claim your mind back!

Become conscious. Stay alert. Be aware. It may seem we are all going to hell in a handbasket. It may seem as if nothing good happens. Still, more good still happens than bad. Good can and will still prevail if we commit to making it so. Transform yourself. Love yourself.

You Are Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You – Be Aware

Love others. Help others. We all need to row in the same direction, together at the same time, to get ahead. We don’t win by not playing or by hurting the other team. Rise to a higher standard. Live from that standard. Be alert. Work to remain free in mind, body and spirit.

Stop buying into bad news and advertising! Recognize that there are changes that need to be made and help make them! Help make the world better. Don’t give up. Keep the faith. Remain optimistic in the face of opposition. Seek the truth. Look for accurate information.

Vet your sources. Pay attention to all the good, the blessings, the kind acts, the people who help each other. Pay attention to the loving, the generous, the kind and the peaceful. Be accepting. Never give up your freedom to think and choose for yourself. Become whatever you want to be, do or have. Make good happen! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Only Think You Think

“Thoughts are really, mostly, just past old tapes of self-talk, pictures and feelings people identify with. They are old movies. Reruns mostly. This is why you think the same thing over and over again. You have habitual, patterns of review that get triggered. New? Hardly!

Most people don’t think at all. They just run the old tapes and movies and think they are thinking. They aren’t. It isn’t new, creative, thought. It is past, conditioned habitual thoughts. People argue with themselves because they have both sides taped.

This is why people have difficulty deciding. They have both sides and they repeatedly, obsessively go back and forth. People are not these thoughts. They are not thoughts at all. They are running the old programs in new situations. You might have noticed this yourself.

You’re Where Your Thoughts Brought You And Will Be Tomorrow

It is reaction not response. It is habit. It is patterns playing over and over. This is why the statement, if you always do what you always did but expect different result it is insanity.  AND, if you always do what you always did you will always get what you already got. Get it?

It is sad but we all go through this. You can become aware of your thought habits. You can learn to direct them and shift from non-productive, negative, non-supportive thinking to productive, powerful positive thinking and begin to get better results.

You can learn to think. It takes re-education and rewiring. Transformation is possible. Stop using borrowed maps. Create new updated ones. You can become aware. You can change thought patterns and manage thoughts. You can even transcend thoughts!

The Brain Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think – Learn To Think Now

Then your entire life can begin to change for the positive. Stop living from the outdated and update and upgrade your thinking. Design your mind, your experience and your life. Learn to create your best life ever. I’ll help you. Nothing will change however, until you do. Meanwhile, practice gratitude and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Bad News And Good News You Need To Do Something About!

“You made your thoughts, feelings, self-talk and behaviors habitual all while you were growing up from birth on. By about age seven your beliefs, mindset and behaviors were locked in. All of us go through this. Our limitations and beliefs govern us from then on.

That is the bad news. We are limited from the beginning. The good news is not everything we were conditioned with was negative or a limitation. We also have resources but we don’t even realize we have them because the limitations get most of our attention. We miss out.

More good news. Once we become aware of the conditioning process, and our own conditioning, we have the opportunity to change it. Awareness is the beginning point. When we realize what we are doing isn’t working any longer, we can begin to do new things.

Skill Comes Of Doing – Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill

Then we can re-condition ourselves and become free. It is simple, but not always easy. It requires we do the new thoughts, new self-talk, new feelings and new behaviors correctly, consistently, for long enough to overwrite the old habits and lock in the new habits.

We can do this! You can do this! I can help you. I’ve programs designed to help you make positive and powerful changes easily and have fun while doing so. If you realize you need to change and transform and create your best life, check into Mind Design™.

Here is an important quote:  ‘It is only when the correct practice is followed for a long time, without interruptions and with a quality of positive attitude and eagerness, that it can succeed… Distractions arise from habitual thought patterns when practice is intermittent.’

If You Want Your Life To Change You Must Change Some Things

That’s from Patanjali, about 1700 years ago, author of the ‘Yoga Sutras’. The success formula to follow for change goes way back! It is rooted solidly in time and practice. Follow correct practice and you will develop the results you seek. Sadly, most people don’t. Will you?

Practice gratitude. Inspire yourself. Inspire others. Be thankful. Look for the good. Enjoy each moment. Let go of the past. Let go of limitations. Encourage your resourcefulness. Become aware. Consider all a blessing. Live joyfully. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why You Are As You Are

“What people mostly miss is this: how you are right now, in the present, is what you have practiced to be, albeit without realizing it. Current reality is fashioned from the thoughts and actions that have come before. It doesn’t just happen. It evolves. The past leads here.

People repeat the same thoughts, feelings and behaviors, habitually. We live from our previous conditioning which leads to our present day results and outcomes. It is a journey. How you travel determines how you are when you arrive. We live from habits. You and I do.

If you want it to be otherwise and better, then you would need to change some things. You’d need to make some changes in what you think, feel, say and do. You’d need to change what you are doing to get different results. Get it? Then, the past doesn’t equal the future.

Want To Change Your Life – Change Something You Do Daily

You need to practice and recondition yourselves for success and happiness. Everything you do in life you practice and you master, whether it is good or not so good. Learn to make wiser, and better choices. Practice the things you want to include and keep.

Let go of the former not so good and wire in the good, instead. Then you are much wiser and smarter. Whatever you do repeatedly you are practicing. You practice and practice it, albeit unintentionally and unconsciously, over and over and then, voila’ it becomes habit.

It is now permanent until you learn how to be otherwise. Our habits are a godsend. They are all good, even when they lead to less than glorious results. Each has a special purpose. They are designed to be streamlined so you don’t have to think it over and over again.

Successful People Are Those With Success Habits

You just do it. You don’t have to keep learning something because you learned it and it is reliable and automatic. The truth is your brain doesn’t care whether you learned a good habit or a bad one. It treats them all the same. There is no judgment. You just do it. It does it!

YOU may  judge it because you want to do something different from what you ‘find yourself’ doing,  but in actuality, there is no judgement. It IS what it is AND will continue to be what it IS until you learn a different habit. You are a compilation of habits!

You  can be taught how to learn new habits. That is good news. You can recondition yourself  to make new positive ones. This is how you change. The new habits become permanent until you decide to change them. You trade one habit for another; bad for the good.

A Change From A Bad Habit Leads To A Positive Change In Life

If it isn’t working well for you, change it. If it is working wonderfully, allow it to continue and nurture it along. Promote what you want. Let go of what you don’t You can learn glorious new ways to be! It’s all marvelous when you think about it. The process is amazing.

Most people just don’t understand the process. They don’t work the process in their own best interests, because they don’t know how. This shouldn’t be surprising since we see people acting against their own interests much of the time. They simply don’t know any better.

All of us can be awakened to new possibilities and a positively marvelous life! That, for me, is the purpose, and outcome, of learning and training; to assist others to see in the dark, as long as it takes, for them to find their own light. It is to assist people in choosing better.

At The Heart Of Mastery Is Practice – Stay On The Path

It is to help you go beyond what you have known and into new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving so you can start accomplishing your goals and dreams. It is to help you skyrocket your results to create your best life ever! I love it! People are amazing. People can change.

You can change! Never wait. The time is now. Now, is the only time we actually have. Begin today then tomorrow can become incredible. Put into motion the principles and practices I share. Rehearse them, practice them, until they become habits for you.

Wire them in and they’ll become automatic. Wouldn’t you like to be automatically supported instead of automatically screwed? You can be when you learn how! That is great news! You can change and transform in ways you might never thought possible, BUT, you can! Plant the seeds, tend the garden, and harvest the results. That is the process. Live the life you are meant to live. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
