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

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
