Some People Never Bother To Change…

“Many people don’t bother to improve themselves. They simply slug along doing what they have always done. Whining, complaining and blaming. Their focus is on others, what is wrong and what should be corrected so they have it easier. Some people are like this, right?

In reality, they’re blessings for the others who seek to improve. Some consider them thorns, not blessings, but they are blessings! They are mirrors for us. Being who they are they show us where we need to change. They reflect us. So, don’t judge them. Love them.

They actually help us see our blind spots. Be grateful for them and  for all circumstances for the same reason. “Challenges’ provide us opportunities to recognize where we need to change and the opportunity to change. Don’t judge, love instead. Be thankful.

How You Change Is How You Succeed – Skill Comes Of Doing

Today, decide on something to be grateful about. Enjoy it and express your thankfulness. Also, find one area to improve on. Whatever it is, in your experience, find a way to make it, or yourself, better. Imagine if you did this every day. 1% improvement per day.

That is 365% improvement in a year. Your abilities to improve and feel grateful increase with use. Muscles atrophy when not used. Plants, animals and people die if not watered. If everyday you exercise your happiness, and condition your success, those muscles will grow. They will grow a lot in time! So, do something wonderful for yourself each day. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How Do You Really Get To Carnegie Hall?

“You probably know the answer to this famous question. ‘How do I get to Carnegie Hall?’ The famous answer, ‘Practice, practice, practice!’ The answer is accurate and true. While you may practice and not get there, most assuredly you won’t if you don’t practice.

That is how you make it happen. Any skill or talent you want to learn improves with correct practice and repetition. That is how you learned to roll over, crawl, walk, talk and feed yourself. It is how you learned reading and writing and arithmetic. It is how you play games.

If you want to be a concert pianist you must practice, practice, practice correctly. What is difficult at first becomes easier. The more you do the more you can do. This is how it works. You stick with it until you master it. You are in a process. There is a learning curve.

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

You are in the Conscious Competence until you are in Unconscious Competence. It takes the time it takes and that time frame differs for everyone. It isn’t a straight line. It is uphill, downhill and has plateaus. There are for phases to learning. I’ll briefly explain.

Unconscious Incompetence means you don’t know what you don’t know. Prior to being exposed to bike riding you didn’t know about bikes or that one, or you, could ride them. You are ignorant to it. Conscious Incompetence means know you know you can’t.

The Conscious Competence is when you talk your way through it. It seems a struggle. You have to pay attention to so many things. Just like when you first learned to bike ride or drive a car. You had to ‘think hard’ about it. You forgot. You made it work. You forgot.

The More You Do The More Capable Of Doing You Become

The more fun and delight, the more you nurture and encourage yourself and the process, the more you enjoy, the swifter and easier the process is . Always keep the faith. Know where you are headed. As you keep moving forward you eventually will get there.

Unconscious Competence is when you have made it a part of you. Your skillset becomes a reliable, automatic habit. You can do it without thinking. As you did one day when you hoped on a bike, or drove the car without thinking. You just did it. Everything worked.

You now can drive and be caught up inside your head and not even realize for a time period you are still driving. Your unconscious does it, similarly to how it takes care of beating your heart and digesting your food. You no longer talk your way, think your way, through it.

Drop By Drop The Tub Fills – Skill Comes Of Doing – Repeat

Our habits are all like this. The difference is we have learned some positive, supportive, uplifting habits and we have learned some negative and non-supportive habits. Some habits are both depending on when applied. Running away from tiger, good.

Being afraid to start a project that is good for you, not so good. You can overwrite the non-supportive habits the same way you learn to ride a bike, drive a car, become a concert pianist or learn to do anything. Through correct, consistent repetition for long enough.

You can learn to do and master anything you put your mind to. You can learn to be happier, more positive, more successful, you can take control of yourself to create your best life ever, when you know you can. When you apply certain life changing principles! Design your mind and you design your life. Pretend anything and you can master it! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

If You Think You Are Beaten You Are!

“When things seem discouraging as the sometimes will, do not be discouraged. That is when it IS important to keep the faith. Trust in the invisible coming to pass, that which you want to create and make happen. Don’t buy into discouraging thoughts and circumstances.

Enjoy this poem first published in 1905 by author Walter D. Wintle, that Napoleon Hill included in ‘Think And Grow Rich’ 1937. It is a classic and you might take these words to heart. Apply this thinking!

‘If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost a certain – you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost;
For out in this world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can!’

Hope You Enjoyed This Reminder! Celebrate Everything” Rex Sikes

If You Don’t Believe This You Will Not Succeed

“If you  don’t  believe that you will get what you effort for, ask god or the universe for; if you don’t believe your subconscious, god or the universe, or your efforts will give you what we ask for, you  have no reason to expect that you will receive it. You must believe! Trust.

Believe in yourself. Believe in your higher power or source. How can you develop this faith? The Bible provided a clue when Jesus stated “Unless ye be become as a little child, ye shall in no wise enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”  What do you think little children do?

The have complete faith in their provider. They believe their parents will take care of them. They trust wholeheartedly! They also pretend and dream and use their imagination freely and vividly. We all do. Until trained or conditioned out of believing and positive imagining.

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You – Skill Comes Of Doing

As children we pretended whole-heartedly. We believed we can be, do and have anything. We trusted those ‘in charge’ to provide for us. We prayed believing our prayers are answered. Whether or not they seemed to be, we believed. Mindset, heart and behaviors matter!

The way you make things happen is by believing in yourself. You believe you can and will do it. You will do it because you are responsible for it. No one else will do it for you. You are the one who makes things happen. Imagine it. Affirm it. Over and over again.

Continue until you absolutely believe it. If you do it correctly, repeatedly, consistently, for long enough, you will come to believe it. Believe it. Develop the faith and imagination of a little child. You can if you practice it. Have faith. Relax, let go and let god.

You Develop Certainty By Conditioning Yourself – Repetition

Sometime, sooner or later you will look back and you will realize all you have created and allowed.  Keep playing and having fun. You will be grateful and express you gratitude then. So begin now. Delight and enjoy. Be grateful. Find all the blessings. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

It Sucks But You Aren’t Thinking Your Own Thoughts!

“I like to be challenged to think and challenge others to think. Thinking is a rare act for most people these days. Especially these days, but for all of time. Most of us live from memories. We run  old mental movies in our mind. The same old memories and thoughts.

We run the same repetitive self-talk we’ve repeated endlessly for years. It never changes but the days change. We rag on ourselves the same way. We blame others and circumstances the same way. Events and people change but our thoughts stay the same.

We live from old preconditioned thoughts we think over and over, believing them to be ‘free thought’. They aren’t. They are rules, beliefs, and opinions we accepted while growing up. We bought into them from parents, peers, experience and media of all types.

The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think

We are socially conditioned. We think we should go to school, get a job, work 40 hours a week, marry, have kids, be a good citizen because we have bought into that. In and of itself, none of that is not necessarily not good, but it can be if you accept it without choices.

Thinking and regurgitating our old pre-conditioining are two separate things. Opinion versus fact are not the same.  Most of us accept opinion as fact. This is why we are so easily deceived. We don’t bother to check for ourselves. How often do you vet sources?

We believe it because someone said it, or we heard it, read it, saw it on the internet, or TV or in movies and popular songs but we don’t fact check it. We elect officials off of platitudes and slogans and media image campaigns without checking first if they are any good.

You Become What You Think About Most Frequently

We accept so much at face value because it is repeated to us over and over again. We affirm what we are told numerous times. The same applies to our own thinking. We don’t check to actually see whether it is valid or not. Most of our own thinking is broken.

We just believe it is because we ‘think’ it. We shouldn’t! Most of our thoughts are old accepted conditioning that is now habit to think. We do it automatically. We react from habit not from new thought. We are conditioned to do this. We can change, but only if we want.

In order to change we must first become aware of it. We must recognize what we have been doing. We need to take responsibility for it and become aware when we do it next. This requires vigilance and dedication. It may seem difficult, and it can be, but gets easier.

To Change You Must Make The Unconscious Conscious – Be Aware

If you don’t do it you will continue the way you always have. If that is great and okay with you then continue. If it isn’t and you prefer to change and live more fully, abundantly, happily, heathy, wealthy and more successful then you need to make changes now. Don’t wait!

It doesn’t get easier or better the longer you wait. It only gets worse. Realize now, that you are where your thoughts have brought you. Take responsibility for everything you have and don’t have in your life. No one else is responsible for thinking your thoughts but you.

To change become aware when you find yourself thinking old negative, less than glorious, dis-empowering thoughts and change them to more powerful positive thoughts. Continue to do this until you make the new choices, the new thoughts, habit. Get it?

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

It is up to you and no one else. So stop blaming, excusing, and complaining and start telling the stories you want to be told. Create positive life experiences, new goals and dreams you achieve. Live, laugh, and love more. Practice gratitude. This is how you begin to change. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

All Big Ideas Are Met With Opposition!

“All big ideas are met with opposition. When Henry Ford first attempted to sell the automobile people protested stating they didn’t need one since they owned a horse. Edison had difficulty selling the public on electric lighting. Go figure, right? Yup.

Big ideas are opposed. Einstein said, ‘great spirits must do violent contention with mediocre minds’. True dat! Right. We have all been opposed by others. Tell your family you want to be a poet, singer or actor. Probably, you were told you’d fail. But it gets worse. Yup.

Much worse. How much more worse? Much, much! Your own big ideas, your dreams, goals, plans and intentions are met with doubt, fear, anxiety and limiting beliefs. You think, it will never happen. I don’t deserve it. Okay for others but not for me. Get it? Right.

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You

People are great spirits and their conditioned mind is mediocre. Attempt to make a change and your mind resists and puts you in your place. Many people want to do things but don’t feel like actually doing. They procrastinate, excuse or blame. Resistance from within.

In order to move forward you need to re-condition your mind. Your mind doesn’t care which program it runs. It only runs the one it knows. You need to replace that old conditioning with an updated message that states I CAN instead of I can’t. Change your mind.

Replace the old with the new. Condition yourself for success. Stop resisting and begin cooperating with your self. Set yourself on the path and move forward without the battle, the fear,  the hesitation and worry. Time for faith instead of doubt. You can! Yup. YUP!

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

You may need to learn how. If what you have been doing isn’t working and hasn’t worked then continuing to take that same approach isn’t serving but preventing you. You need to begin to do things and take actions and develop the mindset that works.

Stop failing and start succeeding. Stop fighting with yourself and start living the life you deserve. You can when you know you can. When you believe you can and take right action. When you live intuitively and from your higher self. You can accomplish anything. So start changing. Be happy. Be grateful. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Won’t Make It If You Can’t Concentrate

“There are plenty of distractions in life. Media, social media, gossip, circumstances, events, people and more. Our attention shifts moment to moment. Perhaps, as never before in history, our minds are fractionated and led this way and and that every few seconds.

Films, television, music video, the news shifts focus and directs our attention quickly. We never get to settle on any subject of shot for long before it is replaced.. Reading and handwriting are becoming lost arts. Is it any wonder people have difficulty paying attention?

We have been trained out of concentrating and focusing for any length of time. Yet, that is precisely what we must do in order to create. Students have difficulty sitting still and concentrating ins school as a result. Adults too. They are medicated instead of trained.

F.O.C.U.S. Means – Follow One Course Until Successful – Do It

You can’t be going this way and that when you want to manifest your dreams. You must have purpose, clarity of purpose, and single mindedness. If you conceive it and believe it you can achieve it but to do so requires you put your attention, thoughts and energy into it.

People give up and move on too quickly. We’ve been conditioned out of staying with something long enough to master it. Online articles are filled with pop-ups and videos. All bright shiny objects to capture your attention, but they do harm. You lose your ability to focus.

If you can hold it in your head, you can one day hold it in your hand. The trick is holding it in your head. You must keep seeing it in your minds eye. You must stick with it. Concentrate on it and become passionate about it. You determine to make it happen. You do it!

The Sun’s Rays Don’t Burn Until Magnified And Brought To Focus

BUT you won’t if you keep changing what you pay attention to. If you can’t concentrate on something for a solid duration of time, you won’t stick with the pursuit and creation of your goals. People need, more than ever, to train their minds to stay put on their dream.

People want it fast and easy. They want it yesterday. The days of apprenticeship and mastery seem long gone, except for the few who know the value. Most of the promises made to us are for faster, better, easier, instant, take a pill and it will all be resolved. It won’t!

It get’s worse not better. Learn to focus on what you want. Understand, you need to stay with it, just as planting a seed takes time to flower, so do your abilities require time to mature. Seek mastery and you will continue on the path. You’ll make it happen.

Focus On One Thing At A Time – Let All Else Fall Away

Stop being flighty. Start being committed. Be passionate and steadfast. It doesn’t come to you. YOU make it happen. Stick with the principles and practices daily and you will prevail. Master the habits that support you. Master concentration. Master gratitude. Master persistence. Then you can be, do and have anything you want, within reason. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
