Are You Costing Yourself Or Making Yourself A Fortune?

“In the HBO Documentary ‘Becoming Warren Buffet’, Mr. Buffet reveals two rules of investing. Rule Number One: ‘Never Lose Money’. Rule Number Two: Never forget, always remember, rule number one. Do not let the power of these rules be lost on you.

Consider that every purchase you make, how you use your money, either feeds you or eats you.  This concept taught by Robert Kiyosaki dates back to ancient Babylon. Everything is either a feeder or an eater; your house, your car, your hobbies, everything you own.

Does it appreciate and feed you, or does it cost you to own it? Your house could be a feeder, an asset, if it appreciates and makes you money, as in you rent a room. It could be an eater, a liability, that costs you monthly mortgage, taxes and repairs. How about your car?

Skill Comes Of Doing – The Proper Fruit Of Knowledge Is Action

Never lose money! Organize your thinking to adhere to this rule. No frivolous spending. Spend only to make more. Invest in yourself. Make what you have make you more. Put your money and investments to work for you. Never lose money! Be smart about it.

The way to wealth is to befriend money. Make it work for you while you sleep and play. Be smart. Save and invest wisely. Be frugal and always live beneath your means so you maintain your financial freedom. Remember the two rules. Apply the two rules. Get smart by learning how to invest. Don’t be stupid with what you have. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

If You Don’t Do This You Won’t Get Ahead

“For the last 100 years, and beyond, successful people, leaders, have told us, ‘if you do this ONE thing you can succeed.’ They’ve told us there is nary a chance of success if you don’t do this. It is deemed crucial for success. If you are struggling, you haven’t done it.

You can’t get to where you want to go if you don’t know, and haven’t set, your destination. You must know where you want to head. It must be clear, concise, specific and well-defined. You absolutely should write it down and look at it numerous times, daily.

Napoleon Hill, called it your Definite Chief Aim or Purpose. Some call it your biggest goal or dream. If you want your GPS to take you to another location in your future, you need to put in the exact address to get there. If you haven’t yet done this, do it today.

You Only Need The Roadmap And The Courage To Get There

How do you clarify what you want? One way is to ask yourself, ‘what do I want?’ Write it down. Another way is to ask, ‘what do I not want?’ Then, write down the opposite. Make sure it is positively stated and doesn’t include words like’ don’t’ or ‘won’t’.

Instead of saying, ‘I won’t eat sugar,’ state what you will eat instead. ‘I will eat healthy snacks,’ or ‘I’ll have a piece of organic celery’. This tells your mind what you want and will do. You can picture eating a healthy organic snack. Eliminate, ‘don’t’. ‘I don’t want to be fat’.

Rewrite that as, ‘I will exercise for 20 minutes daily,’ or ‘I will eat healthy snacks and meals.’ Get it. Phrase it positively for what you can and will do. So write down your major goal. ‘I will make an extra 100 dollars this month’. ‘I will speak nicely and kindly to my children.’

The Journey Is The Destination Too  How You Journey Is Important

You have to know what you want. Where are you headed? Consider this: you can’t tell your GPS where you don’t want to go. NOT ONLY THAT but it would be stupid and pointless. You only want to get to one place and there are countless places you don’t want to get to.

Define your goals and dreams. Your goal or dream, your Definite Chief Purpose, must be really important to you. You must absolutely want it, or it’s unlikely you will get it. If it is just, ‘sort of’, important, you won’t go the long haul. It isn’t worth it.  Get it? I hope so.

You must think about it day and night. Look at your written goal frequently. Recite it out loud. Keep it in the forefront of your mind. You must feel good about it. Know you can make it happen. If you doubt you will, then you won’t. You must want it and feel good!

The Easiest Path To Take Is One Already Made – Model Success

It must be absolutely important. You must believe you will make it happen AND feel good, feel great, about it when you think about it. If you don’t feel good about it you won’t make it happen. I’ll share more next time to help you with this. You must feel good about it!

It is up to you and no one else. Decide you will do it no matter what. The act of writing it down helps you crystalize it in your mind. You actually begin creating it by writing it out. You take it from an idea, to on paper. From paper, the blueprint, you make it a reality. THIS IS how it works.  Be glad. Be grateful. YOUR best attitude is necessary! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Tired Of The Hype? Who Makes The Law Of Attraction Work?

horizons walks-the-edge-phil-koch

“Do you want a happening career? Want to get a great job? Want to book more gigs? Would you like to be happier? Want more money? How about a relationship? Are you interested in the good life?

People try all sorts of things; they work really hard, hope, pray, they bargain, try magic and the Law Of Attraction (LOA). They do lots of different things but seem only to be spinning their wheels.

How do you get what you want? Lot’s of people work hard but don’t get anywhere. They try all those things but still struggle. That is sad. They can have what they want if they work smarter.

They don’t have to work harder. That is a myth. They don’t need anything added to them from the outside, but they think they do. SO they try lots of things that don’t produce the results they want.

It Was Called Think And Grow Rich

I don’t really like the term ‘the law of attraction’ but it has been around for a hundred years or so. Since it is popular and somewhat accurate, I use it to discuss what you can make happen.

The practice is powerful and absolutely works but it is not the ‘instant magic pill’ people wish it to be.  When they find out ‘it’ doesn’t match their unrealistic expectations they quit.

They blame IT for not working, and move on. It’s not IT that doesn’t work. IT Does. The change that must first take place is an inner change. An inner attitude. Without this, IT won’t work, that is true.

It isn’t magic. It doesn’t come from outside of you. No one waves a magic wand. It stems from within you. It is a process and it requires time, so be patient. It is absolutely reliable.

It Was Called The Science Of The Mind

It does work. It is completely up to you. Just don’t believe all the hype about ‘finding the missing ingredient that wasn’t included in the secret’… there is much marketing BS around the LOA.

What is the law of attraction then?

It is the harnessing and focusing of your internal mental powers, your feelings and your actions in pursuit of a strongly desired outcome. Your inner workings determine your outer results.

It includes, the accurate notion that ‘birds of a feather flock together.’ That, ‘like attracts like’. THAT isn’t magic THAT is law! In order to have that happen YOU do it. I’ll explain.

What You Think About You Bring About

Simple enough. You put your brain to work deliberately accomplish what it is you want to accomplish. The difference between most people and those who make it work is outer and inner.

Those who have difficulty expect something outside of them to help them. Those who make it work know it is they who help themselves. They get their mindset right and create what they want.

The LOA means you focus on your goal with such desire, such passion, that all else falls away. You target your goal with laser like precision. All of your energy is devoted to making this come true.

Your goal begins as an idea that you make real. You create it and fashion it. It is all you. You focus your energies and resources the same way you aim a magnifying glass to focus light and burn paper.

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes

That same paper can sit in unfocused daylight forever and never burn. You focus, you create and you attract because of your mindset and your behaviors. Not because of magical wishing things different.

Your intention and attention is so devoted to what you want your subconscious works on this day and night and comes up with ideas and plans for how you can accomplish it.

You marshall your resources and abilities. You don’t have to know how to begin because as you act and move forward you initiate these processes. Begin where you are with what you have!

The ‘how’ will take care of itself as you act on your own behalf. You may change your plans many times on route to your destination but you keep traveling to where you want to get to.

You Don’t Live A Positive Life Thinking Negative Thoughts

You don’t give up. You don’t quit. If obstacles arise and you detour, you detour but keep going. You persist. This is where others throw in the towel. They think it should be easy. They want it easy. Easy!

It is easy. Not always, but it is. It is simple. When it does get tough you must too. You are the person in charge. Not a deity or deities, not magical fairy dust or laws, you, your subconscious mind.

As you journey you begin to understand that success never happens in isolation. If you are smart you do things that attract and enlist the aid of others. You develop your personality so as to be likable.

Develop a pleasing personality so others would want to help. You apply the Golden Rule. You treat others well, with respect and attention. You help first because you like people. THEY reciprocate.

You Become What You Think About All Day Long

Go that extra mile and add value. Again, you add it FIRST. You help without having to be asked. If you want others to help you it only makes sense you give them something worthy in advance. Get it?

Surround yourself with others who are smarter and who can help you on the way. Support others who are trying to succeed. Celebrate their successes as they move forward. They reciprocate!

Work together as a team. Become a valued player. Through co-operation we get further, faster than alone or in trying to compete. When we celebrate and validate others they reciprocate!

With your mind and energies so focused your brain becomes alerted to others, events and opportunities that are beneficial to you and you to them. More wonderful things seem to come your way.

Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

Your Reticular Activating System (RAS) in your brain works this way. Because you focused it, it  finds matches in your experience and out in the world. You notice opportunity previously closed off from you.

People are attracted to you because you are a more attractive personality. You friendliness, your commitment, your drive and your passion are attractive to likeminded people. Like attracts like.

Like a beacon light on a hill others are drawn to you. Never forget however, it is you doing it. You are evolving yourself. You are making everything happen. You are responsible. When you take charge!

You are a deliberate creator. You and others help you succeed so no need to get egotistical about it. Keep humble. Stay focused on all the factors that contribute to your success and be grateful.

What You Say Is What You Get

You started it. You have to maintain it. It is always up to you. Most people expect it to happen to or for them if they believe, pray, chant, affirm, visualize. It doesn’t. YOU make it happen. You keep it going!

Keep going until you have what you want. You will attract like minded dedicated people to assist you. Value these people, your time and energy. Use it wisely to accomplish your dreams.

You’ll find more opportunity. You will discover more of the good life. You will notice yourself having more fun, being more delighted and living large. Celebrate it all. Never forget you are doing it.

You are doing it!  Others are helping and you are helping others. Take advantage of and continue to enjoy the new good life that comes to you. This is why it does seem magical.

The Kite Rises Against The Wind

Consider obstacles as lessons. Learn from those moments.  All defeat is temporary unless you give up. Maintain your focus and your positive mental attitude. Persevere and learn!

Maintain your positive productive actions, behaviors and practices. As you do you will develop positive reliable habits and eliminate old worn out ones. Its a conditioning process of developing good habits.

You will have replaced tired, chronic, defeatist thinking with positive powerful, thoughts.  You will have evolved yourself and your life. You took charge and lived a champion lifestyle. Celebrate!

Looking back you can connect the dots and see how you made it happen. Going through it keep your desire and faith high. Keep going no matter what. Are you beginning to understand?

Hindsight Is 20/20

When finished you’ll know the Law Of Attraction works. You have created and attracted what you want. Once you have put it into practice it is easy to do again and again. Thoughts become things.

Henry Ford said, ‘if you think you can or you think you can’t you are right.’ I say, ‘if you believe it will be easy it will be. if you believe it will be hard it will be. It will be whatever you believe it to be.’

Live the life of a creator. Live with gratitude and appreciation. Help others. Most don’t and won’t ever live this way. They drop out anywhere along the line. They didn’t have to it is just what they did.

Instead of owning up, they blamed the LOA. They say, it didn’t work. That thinking will never get them what they want because they are not in charge. Some ‘IT’ is in charge, but ‘IT’ doesn’t do the work.

Focus On What You Can Change

Since you are not like that, have fun and enjoy. Delight and make more moments marvelous. Have fun and enjoy all the good things you were born to enjoy. The world is your garden. Love it and care for it. Celebrate everything” Rex Sikes

If You Want Success To Be Yours You Must Prepare The Way

horizons only-a-moment-phil-koch

“A lot of people hope they will be successful. Do you? They wish and they want but they just never seem to make it as they would like. Has this been your story? They try really hard to no avail. Success doesn’t come often to those who want it, wish for it and hope they will have it. Rarely, if ever! Success comes to those who expect it!

If you want to be successful you have to KNOW you will be. It has to be a certainty! Originally, it may start out as a hope but it must be transformed. Otherwise, it is unlikely. Success is a mindset. It begins inside you before the results become available to you in the outer world. From within to without. Be Success and Success Follows!

Successful people think successful. It doesn’t occur to them that something they want to make happen, won’t. They know they will find a way. It doesn’t matter if they don’t know how, the how will come. Success comes from certainty not wishing. Certainty aligns all of your resources like a laser beam so you can act and move forward.

There is a Bible story, I will paraphrase, for an example, and just an example. I may not even get it correct as I am pulling it from the back of my head. Some where, some people were waiting and praying for rain that was needed. I think god ordered them to dig some trenches to prepare.  They did not.

At some point god speaks to them and says, ‘where are the trenches? If you expected it to rain you would have dug the trenches.’ I guess his point is, if you knew it would rain you would most likely take an umbrella. Okay, pretty poor paraphrase at that. Hopefully, you get the idea.

If you know something will happen then you get ready for it. If success is inevitable you do certain things because of that. This is how you become successful. What starts as a wish and hope must be clarified into a strong want, increasing in desire. It must become you obsession that you transform into faith, knowing you will succeed!

You do things because you know you will succeed. You might also not do other things because of that. You would no longer wish, hope, worry, fret, get sidetracked, of bummed out because it wasn’t happening quick enough. You would remain steadfast and secure. ‘O ye of little faith!’ Am I right or am I right! You would be secure!

Yes, you would still visualize, you would still affirm, you would still ‘act as if’ with complete faith in yourself making it happen. After all, you’re the one who makes it happen. YOU with others are responsible for your success. No one ever makes it alone,  in isolation. You make it with others. So be a nice team player!

A good team player helps uplift and support others. You add value first. You would go the extra mile. When others know their interests are in your heart they can puts your interests in theirs. You celebrate anyone’s forward movement and together you move to the top of the ladder. A rising tide floats the entire boat!

Granted some not so nice people claw and trample their way to the top but that is not you. You can be positive and nice and very, very rich, happy and successful. In fact, if you are happy, successful and rich on the inside first, if you are nice first, you will be nice, happy, successful and rich as the days play out. It works this way!

Commit to being a positive player! Work on developing your certainty. Develop complete faith in your positive ability to get your dreams and goals. You CAN DO This when you believe you will! Be persistent and keep moving forward. Have faith and never give up. You will succeed! SO, right now, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Follow The Recipe For Success!

horizons 2-in-the-beginning-phil-koch

“You know what you want and you really hope you get it. How come you are struggling so much? What isn’t working? What must you do to get ahead? Do you know? If you aren’t sure that is part of why you may be having a rough time. The answer is not working harder.

The answer IS work smarter. Success is a science, a formula, a system. If you follow it, as you do a recipe, you will be successful. Most people don’t do what is required.  They don’t learn the formula.  They try to do it on their own.  In a nutshell:

If you know what you want it must be more than a wish or a hope. It may start that way but it needs to be much more. It needs to become what Hill said, is a ‘white hot burning desire’. It should become your passion, your obsession. From there it becomes applied faith.

If You Really Want To Do Something You Will Find A Way

What is applied faith? It is the certainty that you will accomplish your definite purpose or goal. It is that inner knowing, that feeling that you are on the path and nothing can prevent you. Faith applied means you take action. You take the initiative and do what you must.

You work your plan and because you know one day you will arrive you never give up. Success begins with thought on the inside. It becomes a feeling. You feel successful. You act successful. You take action and you keep at it. Then, you become successful.

Sadly, many people wish, hope, want and desire but they never take the steps that make it happen. For most it is because their attitude is not correct. They don’t have a positive mental attitude to see them through. They believe their negative programming.

They listen to other people discourage them. They look to present conditions and circumstances instead of keeping their eye, their mind, their heart where they are headed to. They get distracted. They are hasty and it doesn’t happen fast enough, so they quit.

If You Don’t Want To Do Something You Will Find An Excuse

There are numerous reasons why people don’t make it. There is only one reason why people do succeed. That one reason is: they keep at it until they do succeed. They let nothing prevent them. Why? Because in their mind they are already a success!

I leave you with this poem:

“You can do as much as you think you can, But you’ll never accomplish more; If you’re afraid of yourself, young man, There’s little for you in store. For failure comes from the inside first, It’s there if we only knew it, And you can win, though you face the worst, If you feel that you’re going to do it.”  Edgar A. Guest  From A Heap o’ Livin’. The Reilly & Lee Co.

You Are Where Your Thoughts Take You

You can absolutely DO whatever you put your mind to. That is what Hill proved when he modeled 500 of the most successful people of his time. That is the result for those who have applied his philosophy fully. His works are responsible for millions of people from all walks of life becoming the success they want to be. You can too! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Success Secret: Passive Enthusiasm! What The Heck Is That?

Horizons bluetiful-phil-koch

“One of the giants of the 20th Century was Henry Ford. His vision, ingenuity and determination made him an incredible success. Yet, it has been reported that Henry Ford was terribly shy and lacked charisma. This is wonderful news. If Ford could succeed as lackluster as he was, perhaps, all of us can. So how did he?

Napoleon Hill offered us lots of examples of success because he studied more 500 of the richest and most powerful of his day. He claims that Ford possessed something quite remarkable. He possessed enthusiasm but Ford’s enthusiasm was what Hill calls ‘passive’. His personality was limp but inside he was on fire.

Hill pointed out that if you have a white hot burning desire for your Definite Chief Purpose you can develop effective working enthusiasm. This is what he maintains Ford had. While seemingly passive on the outside his enthusiasm was quite active and dynamic on the inside. I quote Napoleon below.

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

‘When you want something real badly, you make up your mind to get it. You have that burning desire. It steps up your thinking processes. It wakes your imagination so that your imagination goes to work and works all the ways and means for getting the thing you desire.’

‘That enthusiasm gives you a brighter mind. It makes you more alert to opportunities. You see opportunities that you never saw before when your mind is stepped up to that state of enthusiasm for a burning desire for something definite.’

Ford’s enthusiasm was inwardly directed. His enthusiasm was focused on and transmuted into his imagination, his power of faith and his personal initiative.  Ford believed that he could do whatever he wanted to do. So he went and did it or got it done.

Don’t Find A Fault Find A Remedy

He kept his mind sharp and alert with applied faith (the ability to believe fully and take action toward your goal because of that certainty) through his passive enthusiasm. He delighted in thinking about what it was he was going to do and all the joy would get from doing it.

Hill, said he once asked him, after Ford was already greatly successful, if he ever wanted anything or wanted to do anything that he couldn’t do. Ford said, ‘No. Not in the recent years.’ He said when younger, until that time he learned how to get or to do whatever he wanted to do, he couldn’t answer in the affirmative.

Hill then said,  ‘Mr. Ford, are you saying if there is anything that you need or want you can get it?” Ford said, ‘That’s right. I’ve formed the habit of putting my mind on the can-do part of every problem. If I have a problem, there’s always something I can do about it; there are many things I can’t do but something I can do and I start where I can do something.’

Failure Is The Opportunity To Begin Again More Intelligently

Ford added, ‘As I use up the can do part of it, the no can do simply just vanishes. When I get to the river where I expected to have a bridge, I didn’t need the bridge because the river was dry.”

Hill says, ‘People have the greatest asset in the world; an asset sufficient unto all of their needs. That asset consists of the privilege of using their own mind and thinking their own thoughts and directing those own thoughts to whatever objective they choose and yet they don’t do it.’ That is sad and unfortunate.

Yet, Hill says, ‘When people do change the reason they change is that they discovered this great mind power and start using it.’ You and I can use our minds in much more efficient and better ways to live the kind of life we want. We can make our dreams come true.

Obstacles Are What You See If You Take Your Eyes Off The Goal

There is absolutely no reason we can’t or shouldn’t. It is making the best use of your natural resources and learning to develop our talents and abilities. We CAN DO just as Henry Ford did. We can put all of our resourcefulness to work for us. We can develop our inner enthusiasm and our abilities toward productive means and ends.

Ford maintained that whenever anyone gave him a counter opinion or information from the media of his day or they said ‘I hear tell’ that he did not pay any attention to what was said. He maintained that it was because what they were saying might not be accurate.

Once he knew the source, if the source was faulty, then there were chances the statement was faulty. If he wanted to do something he wasn’t discouraged by the experts, or the popular opinions of his day. He wasn’t put off by attempts to discourage him whatever the reasons. He went ahead anyway.

You Can Do Anything If You Have Enthusiasm

If he had a problem he wanted to solve or an objective he wanted to realize, if he wanted to turn out a new model or increase his production, he immediately put his mind to work on the plan to make it happen. He looked for how he could do it and he never paid any attention to the obstacles.

Ford did this because he knew, after years of applying his mind in particular ways to make his plans come true, that his new plan was strong and definite and backed with the right kind of active faith. He was convinced that any opposition he might meet with would melt away. He developed experience using and relying on his mind.

Ford said, ‘The astounding thing is, that if you took that attitude of putting your mind behind the ‘can-do’ part of every problem then the ‘no-can-do’ part takes to it’s heels and runs.’ Hill stated that was true in his experience as well. Turn on the light and darkness flees on its own. You don’t have to push the darkness out.

Anyone Who Stops Learning Is Old Whether Twenty or Eighty

Hill, states, ‘And my experience has been that if you want to do something, you’ll work yourself up into a faith of white hot enthusiasm. Go to work where you stand.’ If it’s nothing more than drawing a picture in your mind of the things you want to do then keep drawing that picture and making it more vivid all the time… That’s one of the strange things of life but that’s the way it works.’

He encouraged all of us to use the mental tools available to us. Happily, we all can. AND we can use all the tools. We just have to begin where we are. Right now. As we are. We can decide to make our lives more of what we want. It begins with the decision. What decision will you make today?” Rex Sikes

Not Able To Get Law Of Attraction To Work? Well, Guess What!

horizons no-regrets-phil-koch

“Frustrated? Not able to get your career or life goals together? That darn Law of Attraction stuff doesn’t work. Well, does it? Have you been asked this question? Law of attraction not working for you?Perhaps, after giving it a shot, that was your conclusion.

Well, guess what? That premise is all wrong. Let me explain.

The Law Of Attraction is one of many laws. Laws, such as the Law of Gravity or the Law of Lift, always work. They do not work sometimes and then not at other times. They always work! Prior to humankind flying one might have said the law of lift doesn’t work except for birds.

The law of attraction is always working. It never stops working. If you are not getting what you want it is not because the law of attraction doesn’t work. It is because you are attracting the wrong things. The attraction is pulling in what you do not want.

Gravity Is Always Working

Consider the law of attraction as the law of gravity because that is what gravity is. Attraction. Little bodies pulled toward larger bodies. You are simply pulling in the stuff you would prefer you didn’t. Hey, it is not your fault. Like the rest of us, you grew up uninformed.

It isn’t your fault. Do not blame yourself. BUT you are responsible. That sounds like a contradiction but it is not. Don’t blame anyone or anything if you haven’t got it to work in your favor, yet. You can and you will if you start doing the correct things today. It is up to you!

Stop paying attention, concentrating, giving energy to, concerning yourself with anything you don’t want to have more of. Poor health, bills, poverty, distress, bad relationships, awful job, whatever! Stop giving anything you don’t want more back of any thought at all.

You Attract What You Are 

Switch your focus to what you DO want. Concentrate and put your energy on what you do want to attract. Yes, you still have to pay your bills but learn to do so gladly. You will stay pay them when you have all the money so accept that. Pay them gladly, monitor your mind. Attitude is everything. Develop a rich attitude! Mindset rules!

Being upset about you bills, debt, lack of money or poverty won’t help you get out of it. Doing something about it will. What can you do? You first start with your mind and your attitude. You decide that instead of being poor you are rich. That you have plenty. Life is good. There is plenty to go around and you have your share of it.

Focus on this. Imagine yourself already with all the money you need. Living the good life. Bills taken care of. Leisure time and pleasure accounted for. Doing what you want and when. THIS is what you can focus on. Visualize it and affirm it. Live it now in your mind!

Your Thoughts Determine Your Destiny

Why? Because when you do, AND if it makes you feel good to imagine living your dream, then you are sending a clear message to your subconscious mind that THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT MORE OF! Tell your brain what you want NOT what you don’t want.

The law is working you have just been applying it in the wrong way. If you don’t take charge of it you brain runs on default. It gives you whatever it learned to give you while growing up. It mirrors your mindset. It produces more and more of the same.  It gives you the crappy beliefs and programming you adopted and re-produces it.

THAT is WHY the statement – ‘doing the same thing over again but expecting a different result IS the definition of insanity.’ It is why the statement exists, ‘if you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got.’ In order to get something else you must do something else! It is up to you! You ARE responsible.

What You Think You Create

In order to steer the law of attraction, because truthfully that is all you can do, you must take charge. You can’t turn it on or off you can only direct it. In order to direct it to get what you prefer your attention has to be on what you prefer exclusively. You have to let go and ignore the rest. Energy flows where your attention goes.

Many people try it and think positive for a few minutes and then fall back into their old default ways. Either they think negative or neutral which amounts to thinking the same thing. In order to create the life you want you must be mostly positive and focused on what you want, most of your time. Stop defeatist thinking. Think winner!

You must think positive and feel positive most of all your time. So learning to make the law of attraction work for you is learning to be more positive more of your waking hours. Frequently, think positive and focus on what you want during your waking hours. Quality and quantity are the rule.

What You Feel You Attract

Focus on what you don’t yet have, the invisible good in your future, as if you already have it. Ignore the present conditions and circumstances. Why? Because your present circumstances are the results of your former or prior thinking. Literally, from your past.

You have been too focused on what you didn’t want, or you didn’t focus on anything at all. Which is why you got poor results you don’t like. If you don’t run your brain your brain runs you. It learned to do all sorts or crummy, useless things. It does it reliably. Habitually!

Now you have the opportunity to change it. It is very simple but not always easy. Actually, it will be whatever you believe it to be. If you believe it difficult well, then it most likely will be. It is always only up to you. Only you make it work! Your present thinking will become your future reality.

What You Imagine You Become

No one can do it for you. Only you can transform you mindset to develop a winning, champion, creator attitude. If you want the best in life it begins with the best thoughts and feelings inside you. From within to without. Then you create and attract that best of everything.

You brain assists you. You brain evolves by how you think. Think positive and increase and your brain finds ways and examples and opportunities to have more of that. Think negative and decrease and you brain will find all those reasons and examples too.

The bottom line is the law of attraction never stops working. You can only, and only YOU can, steer it in the direction you want to move in. It is up to you what you get back. If you decide to be a positive, ‘I can do anything’ person you will be. Your decision.

The Only Limitations There Are Exist In Your Thinking 

Be patient though, it won’t work overnight. Your brain will change too! It will evolve to be more positive. Your brain changes with you! You are either negative with a negative brain or you become positive and your brain becomes positive too. Then it gets easier to be positive. Whichever you choose, gets easier.

Everything takes some time. Trees grow from seeds. Your results grow from your  thoughts in the same fashion. You condition your mind to be healthy the same way you condition your body to be healthy; over time by repeated exercise. If you exercise your mind right you can have whatever you desire. It works this way!

The law of attraction has its own timeline, not yours. Those of you who tried it for awhile and then threw in the towel; you quit! That is all. You decided you had tried it and now you were finished trying because you didn’t get results as soon as you thought you should. You gave up and blamed the process. Pretty normal.

Anything Can Be Possible

You can’t force the seed to grow faster. You can’t force the cake to bake sooner. It takes whatever time it takes. You can accelerate it some by how much effort you devote to making it work. You can accelerate it some by getting out of your own way and not setting conditions on it. It responds well to the proper nourishment.

You need to do the work and let the outcome go. If you keep at it you will eventually get there, come what may. You just have to keep traveling in the direction of your desired dream, for as long as it takes to get there. IF it is worth it to you, ultimately you will.

If you absolutely have to have it, you will do whatever positive things you can do, that are necessary, to keep you working towards achieving your goal. You won’t quit if you must, absolutely must, have it. Napoleon Hill said, ‘whatever the mind can conceive and believe you can achieve.’

Take Charge Of Your Mind And Your Life

Notice, he didn’t say you will achieve it. He said you CAN because whether or not you will is completely up to YOU. Only you will make it happen. If you marshall your resources and keep going until you do achieve it. That is the reality of it. You can if you will.  Will you?

Learn how to do it. Invest your time, energy and even your money in yourself. Learn to make it work for you because it is already working. Go where you want to go. Be the person in charge of your mind, your feelings and your life. Decide and then follow through!

If you are truly wise and smart you will realize the law of attraction is you. It is your mindset and your will. It is your determination that sees you through to the conclusion. It is not some magical force outside you that changes circumstance.

Take 100% Responsibility For What You Create

YOU are the force. It is all within you. Either YOU make it happen or you do not. You either bring it about or quit and accept whatever is. Either way, you are the law of attraction. Remember always, it is up to you! Only you!” Rex Sikes

The Secret Knack Some Already Know: How You Can Get What You Want In Life

horizons the-angels-sang-a-whispered-lullaby-phil-koch

“Do you want a happening career? Do you want to get a great job? Would you like to be happier? Want more money? Are you interested in the good life? People try all sorts of things; they work really hard, hope, prayer, they bargain, try magic and the law of attraction.

How do you get what you want? Lot’s of people work hard but don’t get anywhere. They try all those things but still struggle. That is sad. I think they can have what they want if they work smarter not necessarily harder. They could stop trying and start getting instead. It is not that difficult once you understand how.

I don’t like the term ‘the law of attraction’ but  I use it occasionally to discuss what you can make happen. The practice is powerful and absolutely works but it is not the ‘instant magic pill’ people wish it to be.  When they find out ‘it’ doesn’t match their unrealistic expectations they quit, blame it for not working, and move on.

To Bring Anything Into Your Life Imagine It Is Already There 

When I say it isn’t magic I mean it doesn’t come from outside of you. No one waves a magic wand. It all stems from within you. It is a process and it requires time, so be patient. It is absolutely reliable. It does work AND it is completely up to you. What is the law of attraction then?

It is the harnessing and focusing of your internal mental powers. That means you focus on your goal with such desire, such passion, that all else falls away. You target your goal with laser like precision. All of your energy is devoted to making this come true. With your brain and your being you make it happen.

Your goal begins as an idea that you make real. You create it and then you fashion it. It is all you! You focus your energies and resources the same way you aim a magnifying glass to focus light and burn paper. That same paper can sit in unfocused daylight forever and never burn. You use the power of concentrated focus!

You Attract Whatever You Give Your Attention To

You marshall your resources and abilities. Your intention and attention is so devoted to what you want. Your subconscious works on this day and night. It comes up with ideas and plans for how you can accomplish it. You do not have to know how in order to begin. Your subconscious initiates these processes as you move forward.

As you act the ‘how’ is taken care of by you brain. It makes the connections and generates ideas for the how. Your may change your plans many times en route to your destination. Still, keep proceeding to where you want to get. Don’t give up. Don’t quit. If obstacles arise detour, but keep going. Persist.

Along the way you begin to understand that success never happens in isolation. If you are smart you do things that attract and enlist the aid of others. You develop your personality to be likable. You make certain you are someone others would want to help. You apply the Golden Rule for this purpose.

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes

You genuinely respect and like people. You go the extra mile and add value first. Help without having to be asked. Surround yourself with others who are smarter than you and who have talents and abilities you do not. That way you don’t need to know how to do everything because there are friendly others who can help you .

They support you because you support others. You celebrate each other. Together, you work in pursuit of your goal as a team. You are a valued player. Through cooperation you all move ahead. Life is wonderful because you surround yourself with positive and inspiring people. You are one too.

With your mind and energies focused your brain becomes alerted to others, events and opportunities that are beneficial.  Wonderful things come your way because you are more attractive. Friendliness, commitment, drive and your passion are attractive. This is how you attract opportunity to yourself like a magnet.

Whatever You Consistently Hold In Your Mind You Experience

You become a beacon, a  light others are drawn to. You evolved yourself. You make everything happen. You are responsible. You are a deliberate creator. You and the other people help you succeed. You discover and create opportunities. There is no reason to be egotistical. Together you make it.

You started it. You have to maintain it. Keep going until you have what you want.  Value your time and energy and use it wisely to accomplish your dreams. Because you have surrounded yourself with like minded dedicated people together you can discover more opportunity.

Enjoy this new good life as it  comes to you; that you draw your way. Celebrate and appreciate everything. Be thankful and express it freely. Remain humble and, yet, certain. Keep the faith always. Obstacles that arise are learning opportunities. Remember, all defeat is temporary unless you give up. So keep going.

You Are The Designer Of Your Destiny

Maintain your focus. Keep up your positive mental attitude and your positive, productive actions, behaviors and practices. Develop positive, reliable habits and eliminate the old worn out ones. Replace tired, chronic defeatist thinking with powerful, positive thoughts. It is far, far easier than you might even imagine.

You have evolved yourself and your life. Looking back you can connect the dots and see how you made it happen. While going through it keep the desire high and the faith high. Believe in yourself and you ability to go after and get what you want. Keep going no matter what.

When finished you will know the law of attraction works.You will have created and attracted what you want. Once you have put it all into practice it is easy to do again and again. Live the life of a creator. Your thoughts become things. What you focus on you get. It gets easier the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time. You develop the knack for it.

Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

Live with gratitude and appreciation. Help others. Most don’t and won’t ever live this way, but you can, if you only will. Celebrate and enjoy! Delight and make more moments marvelous. Have fun and enjoy all the good things you were born to enjoy. The world is your paradise. Love it and care for it. The Law Of Attraction is YOU!” Rex Sikes

Just Because You Can’t See The Miracles Doesn’t Mean They Aren’t Happening

horizons 2-trinity-phil-koch

“Do you want to succeed in your career? Do you need more money?Want to lead a better life? Maybe, you are looking to fall in love? You tried the Law Of Attraction but it doesn’t seem to work. Right?

Has this happened to you? You read the Secret, saw The Secret but you just don’t seem to get the results promised. Hang in there it does work, but not as you probably think it does.

It isn’t magic. It doesn’t happen over night. It is a conditioning process, a lifestyle. It isn’t a light switch you flip and voila’. It is a process! It requires you learn it and use it to master it.

If You Always Say What You Have

You get results from regular consistent exercise. You get results from intentional thinking and deliberate creation when you are consistent and persistent. It absolutely works if you do.

If you have identified what you want to create and focused your thoughts and feelings on making it happen then it is happening. Believe it even if it doesn’t seem like anything is happening yet.

Circumstances around you may be dire, they may not be what you want. Do not give up. Do not succumb to doubt, worry or fear. Do not undo what is going on by what you think and say.

You Will Always Have What You Say

If you put your energy and focus onto the circumstances you don’t like or want, and think on those and talk about those THAT is what you will create more of! STOP! Don’t! That is what most people do.

That is how you undo the good you have coming your way. You must be consistent. You must be mostly positive, mostly feeling wonderful, mostly focused on the invisible MOST OF THE TIME!

Get it? Declare good things are coming. You are not, yet, able to see the goodness on its way. Seeds grow in darkness. The roots grow underground. There is no evidence anything is happening BUT it is!

What You Say Is What You Get

It is happening! Stay with it. Believe it. Trust. Have faith. Act as if that good you desire IS already yours. Be grateful, celebrate and keep showing up. Maintain a positive attitude. Affirm it! Say it!

You have no idea how or when the miracles will break through. If you maintain your attitude and keep moving forward the day will come. What you want now will be yours one day. Affirm it!

The day will come sooner the more you eagerly anticipate the new day coming. In spite of circumstances around you not confirming it. Goodness is coming your way if you planted and nourish the seeds.

What You Think And Believe Determines What You Find And See

Our brain looks for an outer match with what we have going on inside. If you don’t like the outer reality you need to make the inner nicer. We don’t see all there is but what your brain filters for you.

What we see is NOT the reality. It is OUR perception of reality. Our real reality comes from within. We make the circumstances. Keep your mind on what you want. Declare it! Believe it! Stay with it!

Keep your mind off what you don’t want. Believe in what you can’t yet see. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. It is happening! Accept that it IS happening.

Whatever Follows I Am or I Have Is Your Declaration

Only after the miracles manifest will you be able to look back and see how the dots connect. Hindsight is 20/20. Keep your attitude up and feel good about the new day coming. This is HOW it works!

You don’t need to know how it will happen. That isn’t up to you. You only need to know what you want. Describe it and define it and focus on it and exclude all else. Imagine it has already happened.

Be grateful. Celebrate and live in delight. Expect the best and know good is around the corner. Keep the faith. Maintain a positive attitude and enjoy all things. Know that life is good and it will be.

Only Declare What You Positively Want

It works this way. From within to without. It begins as an idea then it becomes the outer reality. You make it happen. You create it. You attract it. You do it. Thoughts become things. Keep at it! Keep at it!

What you think about you bring about. You can absolutely be, do and have anything you want when you apply the principles consistently. You must stick with it UNTIL you have it. Get it?

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS! You stick with it until you get it! You pay the price. It doesn’t come for free. You will have it if you really must have it. Your desire will make it so. Your desire should increase.

Positive Or Negative You Make It So

When you go to the store you pay the cashier before you take the item home. You plant the seed before you harvest. You MUST pay for it before you get it. The payment is your desire and faith.

You should increase your desire over time. The time it takes is for you to grow your desire to make it happen. Most people decrease desire, give up and try something else SO THEY NEVER KNOW!

This is why you want to keep your thoughts focused on what you want. Control your mind. Stay focused and do not give up. Let nothing distract and your day will arrive. Celebrate that day NOW!” Rex Sikes

Make your day an wonderful!

Characteristics Of The Success or Failure: Which Fits You?

horizons the-language-of-my-soul-phil-koch

“Can you be successful in your career? Is it in the cards for you? Will you make your dreams come true? Are you be the kind of person who makes it happen?

Are you not sure? Do you doubt that you might make it?  Are you failing? Is there a lot of conflict? Do you know why? What are the differences between the successful and the not so successful?

The Successful Person has a definite chief purpose well defined. She knows precisely what she wants. She made plans to accomplish her goals and believes firmly in her abilities to make them happen.

She works her plans. She spends a significant portion of time each day toward achieving these.  She maintains a positive mental attitude. She has an optimistic outlook.

She looks for solutions instead of problems. She enjoys her life and makes the best of all situations. She looks for the best in others and praises instead of criticizes. She uplifts. She is great to be around.

She knows others help you to succeed and are important so she learns how to communicate and influence them positively. She creates bonds of friendship and takes an interest in them.

She respects people, is friendly and co-operative. She celebrates their successes and does not envy them when they advance. She is a valued member of the team and she values the others as well.

She is thoughtful and does not criticize. Careful with her words, she thinks before speaking. She only expresses opinions about things she actually has bothered to look into, inform herself of and learn about.

She keeps current with what is going on in the world, as well as immediately around her. She is able to intelligently and calmly discuss current affairs.

She keeps her mind open and is tolerant of others and their opinions and practices. She includes rather than excludes others. She is inviting. She is a person who unites rather than divides.

She assists others and adds value to them first. She goes the ‘extra mile’ or renders more service in her work than she is paid for. She under promises and over delivers.

She adds service knowing that she makes herself highly valued to those around her and who have hired her. Because of her attitude and her behaviors she is indispensable. She succeeds!

The Not So Successful Person doesn’t know what she wants. She drifts and floats from plan to plan, idea to idea. She never spends enough time with any one goal to be successful.

Her success depends on luck, the right events or on others. She does not take responsibility for her thoughts, decisions, or actions. It is not within her control and she doesn’t hold herself accountable.

She is frequently negative or just so-so. The weight of the world is carried on her shoulders. She complains often or blames. She criticizes and finds fault with others and the world at large.

She speaks without thinking. She is not well informed and often misstates events or positions. She repeats gossip and breeds resentment. She hurts feelings and causes strife with her tongue.

She is intolerant of others, their opinions and their practices. She divides and has a closed mind. Her behaviors cut her off from forming bonds, supporting each other and enjoying opportunity.

She looks to benefit a lot by doing very little. She doesn’t pull her weight nor does she offer any added value. Her own needs are her immediate concern.

While the successful person cultivates friendships with all, the not so successful person only cultivates friendships with those whom she thinks she will gain something from. She is in it only for her self.

Both types of individual are where they are in life because of their mental attitude and their actions towards self and others. This list is not exhaustive by any means. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Make your day an incredible one!
