How To Stop Missing Out And Get What You Deserve

horizons-weed-road

“How do you create the career, the lifestyle, the leisure, the love, the happiness, the wealth you want? What must you do to attract it and make it happen. What part do you play? You play every part. The future is your future. You make it happen. You can as you do this.

Live it in advance. Go into the future, decide what you want it to be like, and imagine it as if you already are living it. You want to be healthy, imagine being completely healthy now. You are fit, full of energy, your ideal weight. You are able to enjoy it this moment.

See it, hear it, feel it!  Experience it! How happy and delighted are you to have it right now? You wanted it and it is yours. Imagine it as vividly as possible!  Move like it is true and it is your reality. Sit like it. Act like it. Speak like it. Notice everything you can. Be it right now.

To Enjoy Enduring Success – Travel In Advance Of The World

Create the inner reality where this is true. If you want wealth how much did you get? Where do you live? Who are your friends? What do you drive? What do you where? What do you do now that you are wealthy? Be as detailed or specific as possible. Explore and discover.

After all it is your dream. Create it as rich and nuanced as you are able. Enjoy it. Feel how marvelous it is. If anything doesn’t feel right correct it, adjust it until it does. Believe it. If you don’t, adjust it until you do. You are a creator. You have the right to imagine anything.

I suggest you make everyone around you win. Don’t foster discord or dislike. This isn’t for revenge. Instead, if you need to, imagine forgiveness. and Cooperation. Create peace and harmony. Manifest love and light. This is your future. Make it everything you want.

Luck Is The Crossroads Where Opportunity And Preparation Meet

Do it. It is your imagination. Why not? If you answer why not examine what holds you back, why that is, who it comes from and whether you want to keep that thought or not. If not, change it. Affirm a new one. Affirm this new reality. Let go and live fully!

Create your future vividly while leaving room to be pleasantly surprised as it unfolds in actuality. Affirm and re-affirm what you want by staying focused on what you want and off of what you prefer to exclude. Do you understand this? It is important.

If you don’t want something create what you DO want instead or in its place. Don’t be stingy with yourself. Be lavish. Have fun and enjoy it. Be thankful. Everything first originates as an idea then it becomes reality. It doesn’t magically appear but you make it happen. You do it!

The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It

You keep filling your brain with what you want and how it feels until your brain gets it. As you brain does it assembles your resources and scans inside and out for matches in experience and people who can assist you. It looks for opportunities. YOU still have to take them.

You still create and attract and make it all work together. You will have highs and lows, easy times and challenges but through it all if you maintain your vision you can accomplish it. Napoleon Hill said, ‘If you can conceive it and believe it you can achieve it’. This is true.

It takes time. It isn’t instant. Perhaps, it could be. Don’t rule anything out. Still, it takes time to organize your thoughts and behaviors and align these and become congruent. It takes time to assemble your resources and find opportunity. It all takes time. Never give up.

You Get What You Focus On – What You Focus On Expands

Stick with it. Baking a cake takes time. You get your ingredients together by shopping. You go to where you can put them together correctly in order and place in an oven. You set the temperature and the timer  and wait. When done, wait while it cools. Then enjoy.

You can hate and moan through the entire process OR you can be eager and excited and delighted knowing you are going to have delicious cake. You can be so eager you can almost taste it prior to making it. THAT is the feeling and way you want to live right NOW.

Live inside your future. Create your desires as fulfilled. Enjoy living in that reality. Spend at least a couple minutes of the day imagining and feeling that. Journal what it is like to have what you want. Keep visual reminders, pictures, Vision Board, slogans. Affirm. Believe!

What You Think About You Bring About – See It Speak It Have It

As you move through the day secretly imagine or pretend that is your reality right now. What does a healthy or wealthy person eat, do, think, and say? How does a healthy or wealthy person drive or place an order for an item? How does this person act each moment.

Live it. Feel it. Speak it. Affirm it. See it. Embrace, allow and accept it. Be thankful for it. Be truly grateful for everything you had, have and will have. Practice authentic appreciation. Love. Give and help others. Laugh and delight. It will happen more quickly as you do these things and become these things. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have an incredible day!

What To Do To Begin Changing Your Life For The Better 3

horizons-moring-rush-phil-koch

“Feel delighted as you say, ‘I am learning how to be centered. I am learning how to stay centered. I am learning to control my attention I am beginning the process of focusing on what I want. I am beginning to think more positive.’ Feelings run everything. They do!

‘I am learning to enjoy thinking positive. I think positive and I am positive. I am able to calm myself and stay centered. I am learning to take control and enjoy my abilities.’  The feelings are the drivers! The feelings are what gets the subconscious attention. They really do!

The feelings are more important than the words!  When we are worried, anxious, stressed or angry it is the feeling, more than the words, that the brain responds to. The same is true of feelings  and positive affirmations. In reality, we are always affirming and feeling.

You Can Have Anything You Want Just Give Up Believing You Can’t

The question is what are we feeling and what are we affirming? This is important to understand. In this case you choose to switch or swap out negative feeling affirmations for positive ones. Affirm what you want while feeling the best you can. That is what makes it work.

You will get the hang of it. Take it a bit at a time. Step by step, bit by bit, inch your way into success. You’ll succeed soon enough if you will just  keep at it. Do it once or twice daily but do it! Do this as I have describe for a couple minutes morning and night. Easy enough.

Do it for a minimum or 30, 60 or 90 days. Just a tiny bit of improvement, just 1% positive change, and you will become 90% better at managing thoughts and emotions than you are today. Yes, you can do it a extra times or whenever you want during the day.

Your Past Was A Lesson Not A Life Sentence – Learn New Things

If you feel you need to do it another time, do it. Do it no matter what! Do it during good times and bad times. Do it whether you feel like it or not. Champion athletes don’t always feel like working out but they do anyway. They know the value of commitment. They do!

Get an accountability partner who will help see you through each day to make sure you continue. STAY WITH IT and never quit! You will surprise and delight yourself as you make it a habit. Start easy and enjoy it! Make it fun. Look forward to doing it. AND you will!

Celebrate it. Feel silly. That’s okay. At times you may be angry or upset.  That is okay. You can be mad and say I am learning to be calm dammit! JUST decide this, and this is most important, decide what it is it YOU want to create EACH moment? What do you want?

The More We Do The More We Can Do – Feel Better And Better

IF IT IS TO FEEL GOOD then FEEL GOOD. It is up to you to do it. If you decided you want to drive to the store and no one drives you then you must make the drive yourself to get what you want. It’s exactly the same here. YOU DO IT! Don’t expect it to happen to you.

When finished saying your declarations or watching your breath take a moment and just feel grateful. Acknowledge your progress. This helps you move forward swiftly. Then write down at least three things, circumstance and people you feel grateful for. What only 3?

During my programs I encourage participants to write down 25 things you are grateful for each day. Journal them. Keep the list. Look for things that are good and new; opportunities and new blessings. Find what you already have that you can appreciate.

What You Think You Become – What You Feel You Attract

Do this nightly. Make it a ritual and you will create positive new habits that serve you well. Remember a snail’s pace is fine just remain committed and consistent. Less can be more. Simple can be the best. Gratitude and persistence the key. Celebrate everything!’ Rex Sikes

Have a blessed day!

How To Feel Love At Anytime

horizons-insight-phil-koch

“Would you like a mental trick that can help you feel better overall? Adopting the right attitude or mindset can make all the difference in the world.  Sometimes, you just want to bask in the glow of ‘all is well’ and feel that the world and others ‘got your back’. Right?

Well, you can. Remember the key always is, ‘If it is to be it is up to me’. That means YOU go first. You think the thoughts. You adopt the mindset. Don’t wait for others. Just begin right away. Begin right now. I always suggest choosing thoughts that support you.

You want ones that uplift you. You want to feel more positive and optimistic. I  want ones I can believe and that are realistic, both plausible and possible because I want to be able to believe they are or can be so. I don’t want airy fairy ones that don’t support me.

To Accept Is To Say Yes To Life In Its Entirety

Here is one for today that you may try on. Think these thoughts, repeat throughout the day. Embrace the concepts and wrap the feelings around you. Remember, the non-conscious mind, or subconscious responds to feelings more than words.

The words are for your conscious understanding and for you to create the feelings. So try this on as you would some wonderful new clothing item you love. Say it. Repeat it until you mean it and believe it. That is how it works. You keep repeating it until you believe it!

Remember, it has been borne out that a lie repeated or heard often enough can or is substituted for the truth. Repetition is how we condition the non-conscious mind. Repetition of the feeling is the most important. Believe the words, feel the feelings. It works!

Love And Accept Yourself Exactly As You Are Past Present Future

Here it is: ‘I am loved by everyone! People appreciate, love and respect me. I am a beautiful person inside and out. Others can see and feel my presence. I radiate acceptance. I am surrounded by love and beautiful people. I am protected by love. I’m loved and I am love.’

‘I can love and appreciate others. I accept and allow others to be who they are. We can easily get along. People allow me to be me. I allow me to be me. I drop and let go of judgements. I accept myself.  I love myself.  It feels wonderful to give and receive love freely.’

You can tailor it to mean the most and feel best for you. As with any affirmation or set of thoughts it is best to pick a topic area and repeat it over and over for awhile. A rule of thumb you hear all the time is AT LEAST 21 days. Repetition is the mother of skill.

Real Change Is Not An Event – Real Change Requires Repetition

In order to make a new habit we have to repeat it enough, over a long enough period of time. 21 days is the shortest time period, according to researchers to begin to form a new habit. So try it out for at least that short while. Longer is even better.

Just pick something that uplifts and supports you in being positive and authentic. You can learn to think anything you’d like to with practice. Choose the best thoughts to think and you will feel better You will transform your experience, yourself and your life.

You can feel loved and loving at anytime. It is up to you. It is in your hands, your heart and your mind. If you can hold it in your head you can hold it in your hands. What you focus on expands. What you think about you become. It happen even quicker when you appreciate all life offers without judgement  and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Make all your moments meaningful!

Feeling Low Energy? Down and Out? Do This Immediately!

horizons-lucidity-phil-koch

“Are their times when you feel down and out? Would you like to learn how to feel better almost instantly? Did you know that there is something you can do that will help you shift your mindset? Yep! By changing your awareness and focus you can change your mood.

Many years ago during a reflective, meditative time, I realize my feet had carried me for 24 years without my ever thanking them. I immediately began to appreciate how they had carried me through life, through good and bad times, when they were well or injured.

Silly me. Right? I had missed out. How could I have gone so long without acknowledging them. But, I had. I began to list, one after the other,  how my toes had worked together. My soles of the feet. The muscles, bones, joints and cartilage. My skin. Each and everything!

When I Started Counting My Blessings My Life Turned Around

The flood gates soon opened and I was thanking each and every part of me I could think of and name, inside and out. The more I thanked the more incredible I felt. It is a great place to begin feeling better. It is a great place to get in touch with what is important. Embrace it.

Discover how blessed you are. Do it! Become thankful. Make a list. Do it each and everyday. Whenever and where ever you can. Think it, speak it, enjoy it. Feel it! Let the feelings of appreciation rise up in you. It will positively change how you feel for the better.Delight in all of it. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have an wonderful day!

How To Stop Getting Crappy Results!

horizons-hereafter-phil-koch

“Our outer world reality is determined by our inner reality. The results we get are products of the thoughts we think. At one time the chair did not exist. Someone conceived of it, thought it up, and made one. From idea to tangible item. That’s how it works.

Some suggest the outer world accurately reflects the inner. If the outer is peaceful and harmonious the inner is as well. If the outer world is in chaos and discord so is the inner reality. As within so without. This is an important concept to grasp and consider.

If our thoughts, our beliefs (thoughts we repeatedly think over and over) create our reality then it behoves us to think the very best thoughts in order to create the very best reality. It means we need to control our mind and master it or remain a victim to it. Get it?

Tell The Negativity Committee Inside You – Sit Down And Shut Up

Your mind learned to do what it does. It is habit. It is patterned. It is automatic. If you think negative thoughts, worry a lot, feel bad, you learned to be this way. It is chronic and it is habit you acquired while growing up. Since you learned it you CAN change it. You really can.

In order to do so you have to deliberately change it. You have to deliberately create new positive supportive thinking and feeling habits. Then the results you get will be a reflection of those new positive changes. Your outer world changes because your inner did.

Adopt the best possible beliefs. Affirm these. Declare them. Repeatedly expose yourself to these new thoughts. That is how you learned the old ones in the first place. Repetition and strong emotion. Use the same to create new positive thought habits.

Worry Is Misuse Of Your Imagination And Is Negative Planning

As a potential place to begin realize that enormous wealth and power are available to you right this moment. Abundance is yours! You don’t believe it? Of course not. You won’t if you listen to your old negative conditioning. Your old beliefs will make you think nonsense.

The old, which is only doing what it learned to do, is protecting you from changing. It isn’t trying to harm you, it is just keeping you consistent. That’s what it is designed to do. Keep you the same even if it hurts. Still, you can learn a new and better way. Think positive.

Think, ‘I deserve the best! I accept the best! I can learn to do anything I put my mind to. I accept abundance. I choose to think positive. Enormous wealth and power are available to me.’ Think it. Repeat it. Chant it eagerly, enthusiastically, excitedly, powerfully!

Don’t Ruin A Good Day By Thinking Bad Thoughts

Put some oompf behind it. Mean it. If you don’t at first keep chanting it until you do. Day in and day out. Make it your mantra. Make it your favorite song. Think it, feel it, be it! This is HOW you take control.

This is how you claim your mind back. You think and declare what you consciously decide to. You choose the thoughts you think and repeat them again and again with strong emotion. Words don’t mean much but emotions mean everything. Powerful emotions are critical.

Claim your mind back. Live from your strength not your weakness. Decide what you want to believe and make yourself believe it. The choice is yours? Would you rather believe you are powerful and fail at some things or believe you are helpless and fail at a lot.

What Consumes Your Mind Controls Your Life – Consider That

You determine the kind of life you live. How is it working for you so far? If you love it, wonderful. If it needs a little adjustment. Go for it. If you need a major overhaul, so be it. Take charge and take control. Claim it. Declare it. Make your word the law. Live your dreams.

Turn the within into something so incredible the outside delights you. Live from abundance. Live well because YOU DO deserve to. Find gratitude and be thankful you have this opportunity. It may seem slow at first but it accelerates. You will transform beyond your wildest dreams. Delight in all and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have a gorgeous day!

How To Overcome Difficulties

horizons-homesoil-stormed-phil-koch

“Just because things are falling apart around you doesn’t mean you have to feel bad inside.

Just because everything is going to hell in a hand basket doesn’t mean you have to.

Just because everyone is jumping off a cliff doesn’t mean you should.

Just because there is a violent storm circling you doesn’t mean you have to be affected.

Be the eye of the hurricane instead.

Discover your inner peace. Go to your center. Breathe.  Live higher. Think higher. Act higher. Meditate. Reflect. Let go. Let the world do its thing around you. Stay steady. Focus on what you want. Remain positive. Determine to see it through. Persist. Be grateful.

Do it.

OR…

Don’t do it.

The choice is always yours.

Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

As you decide it will be it will be. Make your day marvelous!

How To Get What You Want For Yourself And Others

horizon-the-risen-tree-phil-koch

“Some people get the opposite of what they appear to want. They hope and wish but they aren’t creating or attracting their desires. I’ve talked with a few recently. When you talk with them it is easy to understand the issues. It is clear the adjustment they need to make.

We attract and make happen what we focus on most. What is it we focus on most? It is that which we think about most frequently. It is that which we think about with the most emotion attached to it. It’s what we feel the strongest about. It is what occupies our being.

For many people IT is what they desire. It is their MAJOR PURPOSE. They want to accomplish something big for themselves It is critical that they do. They want it so much they can taste it.They believe they can. They will absolutely make it happen. They know it!

Determine What You Want – Go For It Positively – Commit To It

It isn’t a matter of ‘if’ it is only a matter of when. When the world throws curve balls at them, they adjust, adapt and continue on. Nothing deters them. They are invincible. The pick up wins along the way. They are positive and optimistic in their pursuit. They get it!

Then there are the rest of the people. Many, who want things but fear the worst. They worry they won’t get what they want. They worry the world or others will somehow prevent them. They feel inadequate and doubt that it will ever happen. They hope, but…

They just don’t ever see it happening. They see calamity, they see trouble and they feel uneasy much of the time. They aren’t necessarily down and out but they think, feel and act as if they are. The think and feel mostly about what they don’t want. They worry.

Don’t Think About What’s Wrong – Think About What’s Right

If we are predominantly occupied with that which we fear,  look out. If it is what we want,enjoy.  Then there are the others. Those Napoleon Hill called ‘drifters’. I was one of these first, fearing second. Drifters are aimless. They don’t have goals. They drift.

One day they go one way. The next day they can go the other way. They are like a cork in the water they go where the current takes them. They aren’t ‘go with the flow’ people because they do want it better. They just don’t aim at anything. They do fear and worry.

They try things but they don’t stick with anything long enough to master it. They don’t focus on a target and make certain they hit it. They look at the target, lob some things at it, miss some, hit some, think ‘oh well’ and move to another target. Hence, they miss out.

Believe In Yourself – Commit To Being A Better Person Each Day

There are people who occupy themselves with getting what they want. There are those who occupy themselves with avoiding what they don’t want. Then there are those who just aren’t sure either way. There could be other descriptions but this is enough.

Time spent creating what we want instead of what we don’t want makes the most sense to me. If I want something then it is up to me to get it. That is how it works. Yes, some people are good at waiting on others to provide it. Some people were raised that way.

Some people have been beat down and don’t believe they deserve anything at all. Some people give up. We don’t need to judge others that isn’t what this is about. We need to evaluate ourself and decide what we will do about creating our life and our future. Ask yourself?

Train Your Mind To See The Good In Every Situation

What do I absolutely want and need? What do I absolutely don’t want? This second question actually helps clarify what you want. Once answered shift your focus to what you WANT and let go of what you don’t. Clarify it, then focus on it! That is how it works.

What kind of life do I want, for me, my kids, the rest of the world? How do I contribute to that and help make it happen? What can I do each moment that brings me great joy and fulfillment? How can I share that with others so they can too? There are many questions.

You might have others. Simply ask yourself what you want? Don’t bother with HOW! You may not know how yet. That is fine. You do not have to know how yet. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU WANT FIRST! Too many miss out trying to figure out how.

Think Positive And Positive Things Will Start To Happen

The how will come as you clarify the want. You will ultimately build a plan but you don’t need to wait. You go as far as you can see and when you get there you can see farther. Do you get that? Don’t put things off because you don’t know how. How is irrelevant!

Edison didn’t know how to make a light bulb work until he made one. Until he succeeded he was trying things, experimenting, but he did not know how to do it. The Wright Brothers did the same with flight. No one had flown before. No one knew how to. They did it by trying.

Focus on building something better, something wonderful for yourself. Stop worrying about the opposite. Stop the excuses as to why you can’t, or won’t. Stop blaming and complaining. Start deciding you can and you will. Commit to making it happen.

The Mind Is Everything – What You Think About You Become

After years of attracting the wrong people, events and situations into my life I decided to THINK DIFFERENTLY and create what I want instead of what I don’t. Funny thing is, it works.  We each come to it in our own time. We may have missed it many times previously.

When we are ready the teacher appears. That IS how it works. We wake up to new opportunity. We awaken to a new way of being. Until then we repeat the old conditioned ways. Once we awaken we work to develop new thought, feeling and behavior habits.

Make your dreams come true. Think ‘I can’! Think positive. Then consider this. Together, how can we build a better world? Think positive.  What CAN we begin to do?  We might not have all the answers yet, but we will find them as we apply ourselves.

Your Happiness In Life Depends On The Quality Of Your Thoughts

Think about possible positive outcomes. Find them and amplify them. Let’s make more good. Let’s let go of the bad. Let’s concentrate on what we want our future to be. Let’s get on the same positive, optimistic, powerful page. Then let’s work to bring it about.

You know the saying. ‘Don’t waste time tearing down the old. Spend your time wisely building the new.’ That is my preference. Get your life in order. Create the future you want and along the way help others. Together, we can build a better tomorrow. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
