Live Now How You Want To Be Living Later

I wrote yesterday about celebrating my 1000th consecutive published blog post.Today, is 1001. I point this out because when I undertook writing it was not without some difficulty. I decided it I would write daily. I called this blog daily inspiration and gratitude.

I committed to it. I had no readers but I made a commitment to write daily to inspire and feel gratitude. That decision began everything. I mention this because what we decide to create, what we decide not to create governs us. Our decisions do shape our destiny.

Here is my point and this really isn’t about me, but I use it as an example. I had no idea what kind of commitment writing everyday meant. I only knew I intended to keep it. I knew that by doing so I would develop the habit. I would also WANT to maintain it.

You Provide The Desire And The Action The Universe Responds

I want to not break the chain. I want to keep it going. Hopefully, my writing has improved. I think it has because I have practiced it daily. I look forward to writing and sharing. I am conditioned to write and share. This is how we change. We make the decision first.

We decided what we want. We then begin. We  begin right from where we are at, in whatever condition we are in. We do something each day in service of that decision. The more we do the more we can do. The more we do the better we can get. We practice.

We keep our word and our commitments to ourself and others. We manage and maintain our attitude, thoughts and feelings. We create the actions that make it happen. In doing so we create our reality. We design and make happen what we want. Whatever it is.

Whatever You Can Dream You Can Do – Begin It – Take Action

Whether it is about writing a blog, getting out of debt and becoming financially free, developing more loving relationships, have more fun, freedom and living our dreams, whatever it is about, we can make it happen, when we decide to and take inspired action steps each day.

It is the steady progress toward fulfilling a goal that keeps us on track. The more we progress the better it feels and the more we progress. There will always be challenges and obstacles but how we get through those depends much on how we view those. It does.

Mindset is the first and foremost skill you want to develop. A steel will and backbone to persist comes from doing and overcoming challenges. The kite rises highest against the wind. Passion is important because without it, it is unlikely you will continue.

Whatever You Consistently Hold In Your Mind You Manifest

It must be worth it to you. It must be important and all consuming. It is important to have fun, too. It is good to have a sense of humor, take things lightly and enjoy all of the process. When you don’t know what to do, do anything positive. Leave your comfort zone. Have fun.

Explore, delight and discover. Adventure. Be playful. Make your dreams happen and have a great time doing so. Stop struggling. Stop worrying. Start living now, how you want to be living later. THAT is the art and the science of making everything you want happen.

Live NOW, how you want to be living later. Stop delaying. Stop putting off. Stop making excuses. Stop whining and complaining. Start feeling good right now for no reason. Start by expressing gratitude. Focus on what you like. Focus on what thrills you.

I Am A Manifestation Of My Own Fantasies – I Am What I Think

Focus on what and who you appreciate. Focus on what makes you happy. Big or small. Tiny and insignificant. Find it and focus on it. Focus on these to the exclusion of all troubles and woes. Feel the power of feeling good! Do it now. Don’t wait. Begin immediately.

This IS how you transform. Where you put your attention and energy is what expands and you get more of. Put it on good things, wonderful things, lovely things, fantastic thoughts, feelings, memories and moments, then and now. Imbibe and savor these!

Focus on delight and you will be. Focus on crap and you get more crap. So stop that. Make love, passion, excitement, enthusiasm, happiness, peace and joy a habit. Do it daily. Practice and rehearse and you get better at it. Begin to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Eliminate Unwanted Behaviors Now Using These Tips!

“You want to change but have not been able to. You’d like to stop whatever holds you back and move forward powerfully. You want to get better at particular skills and improve what you do. Continue to read on and learn how you can increase these abilities right now.

In order to change we need to replace the non-supportive habits we have grown up with. We need to replace the limited thinking and mental conditioning we adopted and grew up being influenced by. We need to practice new positive thoughts and feelings.

We need to develop positive new supportive habits to take their place.  We do this by practice. We do this by rehearsing the new thoughts, feelings and behaviors as we do any skill. Practice a little bit each day makes a world of difference. Athletes know this.

Practice Is The Difference Between Ordinary And Extraordinary

To get good at anything you must schedule time for it.  Through correct practice and  repetition for a long enough duration we create the neural pathways that are necessary to make these new habits. It is better to do a little bit daily than a lot once or twice a week.

We create new supportive thought, feeling and behavioral habits that then become automatic and reliable and replace the old ones. This is how we change. This is why we must persist. I have shared this with you for many years prior to, and within, these blogs.

Hope you enjoyed this video. I hope it helped you understand why we need to dedicate ourselves to our own personal transformation. Correct practice works.  Practice those things that count. Create positive thought habits, feeling habits and behaviors. Practice!

When You Understand This You More Easily Make Changes

Want To Change Your Life-

“Why is it we have difficulty changing? What prevents us from easily getting what we want? You need to know this. First awareness then right action produces change. Read on and you can transform you life. LOOK for the LINK BELOW after my blog. Check it out now!

I had been wrestling with a major respiratory ailment for a few weeks now. I say that only to put it in a historical perspective. It has been an incredible blessing and I have learned a lot going through it. I’ve learned so much about manifesting what we want more of.

In order to be healthy or wealthy or happy one needs to feel healthy or wealthy or happy first. From that feeling or state of being we more readily manifest what we desire. So during this time I emphasized how incredible I feel and how blessed I am. It works!

We Are What We Repeatedly Do Excellence Is A Habit Not An Act

What I want to share with you is something I have been pointing out for many, many years. How our habits dictate what we do, pay attention to, what we get and why we must replace these in order to make the changes we want to. Here’s an example from my life.

About a week ago the electrical socket in one of my bathrooms went bad. It throws the circuit breaker. No power in rooms. 3 of the bedrooms and a bathroom. Because of my condition I didn’t run out to replace it. There are no lights or electricity in any of the rooms.

Nearly, every time I go into one of the rooms, particularly the bathroom, I hit the light switch. I know it doesn’t work but I turn it on anyway. I have done this nearly every time I enter. Why do I do it when I know it doesn’t work? Habit! It is a habit. It is reliable.

Skill To Do Comes Of Doing 

My brain knows what to do because it has always done it. It will continue to until a new habit replaces it. If I never replace the socket eventually the light turning on behavior would extinguish. That would take as long and as many times as it takes. It is what it is.

Why is this example important? When it comes to making the changes you want, you have to hang in there long enough to override the old conditioning. You need to replace the old non-supportive habits with new supportive ones. Your brain doesn’t care.

Your brain doesn’t know the difference between a supportive habit and a non-supportive one any more than it knows the electricity is off in my bathroom. It does what it does. In order to change what it does we must change what we do. We must practice it and rehearse.

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You 

We continue to perform new thoughts, feelings and behaviors until they become reliable new replacement habits. The good news is as we begin to change these habits the process of changing habits becomes easier. The more we do the more we can do.

As Emerson said, ‘do the thing and get the power’. I hope you learn and use this example from my life to transform yours. Manage your thoughts and feelings. Those who complain that The Secret doesn’t work are typically those who don’t try correctly for long enough.

It isn’t magic. It isn’t wishful thinking. It is dedication to replacing limiting thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors that no longer serve us, but have prevented us from living as we want to. We can change anything we want but we must be committed to changing.

Take Control Of Your Habits Take Control Of Your Life

Find blessings in everything. Look each day for what you can feel thrilled about and grateful for. Make it a habit. You will radically transform your life for the better, and discover the improvements you seek when you live in appreciation and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What Is Critical You Learn From The Cold Or Flu

Horizons bails-phil-koch

“A few blogs ago I shared what we could learn from having the cold or flu. One of the main points is, when things don’t feel right we notice it. It may be painful, but this is a good thing. Our body signals us that something is amiss and needs attending to. We need healing.

If we didn’t feel bad we might never know to take care of it. So it is good that painful symptoms get our attention. The issue, however, is to not focus on the symptoms and the pains, but on feeling well. I pointed out I learned to focus on feeling blessed and what was good.

By shifting away from the negative, or less than glorious or painful current physical events, and to positive or more healthy feelings, I could find in me, I began to feel better and heal more rapidly. The better my attitude is, the more my health swiftly improves.

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes – Your Thoughts Begin It

It isn’t easy to shift focus. It takes practice and conditioning. That is why I recommend daily practice. Find the good. Find the delightful and the new. Find the blessings. Shift away from the negative, the hurtful, the destructive to the positive and the productive. Get it?

Over time we develop the habit of shifting our attention. Remember our energy flows where our attention goes. After a long enough duration of daily practice it becomes automatic. Be thankful for problems and obstacles. They help you strengthen the habit.

Shift when things are personally painful. When you are sick. When you feel overwhelmed by bills. When you feel lonely or underserving of love, kindness or abundance; shift from less than productive, less than glorious, negative, painful thoughts and feelings to the positive.

Your Emotions Amplify Your Thoughts – Stop Feeding The Weeds

Stop focusing on what is. Don’t deny it. Acknowledge it. It is a symptom. Focus on what you want instead. Put your attention on what you want. Get it? Create what you want!! Don’t get caught up in what is wrong. STOP and focus on what is right! Promote that.

The same can be said about current affairs, the political climate, the economy, wars and the world at large. Don’t focus on the wrongs. Notice, these are symptoms. Something must change. Don’t deny. Shift attention from the wrongs to what the rights can and must be.

Attend to what you want to build. Don’t focus on debt. Focus on making money. Don’t focus on war. Focus on creating peace. Don’t focus on illness. Focus on promoting health. Don’t focus on restrictions. Focus on ensuring freedom. BUILD what you want.

Reclaim Your Time Attention Energy And Feelings From Negativity

Be glad you can! Be glad you can find good. There is still always more right than there is wrong, but sometimes our perceptions get screwed up. Focus on the blessings. Focus on the fact that you can create change! Even if you don’t know how yet, you can do it.

Be grateful personally and for the world. Find the silver linings. Find the hidden gems. Seek to uncover treasures buried deep. You can miss them if you don’t look for them. Find what there is to be thankful and be thankful. You can! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What Napoleon Hill Wants You To Know And Why!

horizons light house

“The following quotes are extremely important and powerful. If you understand them and apply them you can dramatically and positively up-level your life. You can make what you want to come true, come true. Think of these as immutable laws. They work.

As with anything powerful it comes with an upside and a downside. If your thoughts and beliefs are negative and sickly you are likely to experience life much the same way. Equally, if your thoughts are positive and healthy you will find life as much. It is up to you!

Great power comes at a price. If you want what it affords you, you must be willing to pay the price. You must accept responsibility and use it wisely. All that follows are quotes I selected from Napoleon Hill. Study these. Apply these. Transform your life because you can!

Thoughts Are Things And Powerful Things At That

‘You have a great potential for success, but first you must know your own mind and live your own life – then you will find and enjoy that mighty potential. Become acquainted with your inner self and you can win what you want within a time limit of your own choosing. Certain special techniques help you win the goals of your dearest dreams, and everyone of these techniques is easily within your power.’

‘It is a major indictment against the world’s educational systems that most people come into this world, live their span of years and pass on without being made aware of their thought power and the fact that their lives are made or unmade by this thought power. Worse, yet, we are taught all kinds of things and yet rarely taught to use our minds for the attainment of the one indispensable form of wealth – peace of mind.’

‘Your subconscious mind is your hidden boss. Although your conscious mind controls your conscious actions, the subconscious dictates the patterns of those actions. If, subconsciously, you are afraid to do something, you may fill in with excuses and evasions which prevent you from taking that action. But your subconscious can be persuaded to change any of its standing orders and thus completely change your life. Your subconscious mind is the seat of deep belief which becomes your constant guide.’

If You Do Not Conquer Yourself You Will Be Conquered By Self

‘Conceive a great step forward in your life, form a deep subconscious belief, and the belief becomes the very foundation of reality. Wishing won’t make it so, for a mere wish does not penetrate the depth of the mind; but a true belief becomes part of your complete being.

‘Belief is the key to basic mind-power which turns concepts into realities. Goals can be attained in ways which seem miraculous, yet we only use natural forces available to everyone. Even physical changes in the body can be caused by deeply implanted belief.’

‘The key to having quantities of money often lies in a simple process of auto-suggestion. Concentrate on precisely what you want, and you will see signposts that point the way. The forces of human evolution now have been brought under human control, and you can control your own evolution as a better, more successful person.’

It Takes A Habit To Replace A Habit

‘Your only limitation is the one you set up in your mind.’

‘Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve.’

Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Thoughts You Will Want To Keep In Mind

Horizons distant-rise-phil-koch

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” Alice Walker

“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Christopher Columbus

“Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; what you can do or dream you can do, begin it! Boldness has genius, power and magic in it; only engage and then the mind grows heated; begin and then the work will be completed.” Goethe

“Remember, no more effort is required to aim high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity, than is required to accept misery and poverty.” Napoleon Hill

“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are right.” Henry Ford
