How You Spend Your Time Determines How It Goes

“When you order food at a restaurant, do you doubt that you gave the waitperson your order?  Do you hope and pray and worry they will deliver your food? Are you concerned you may not get it, nor get it in time? What do you do after you have ordered your food?

This actually is an important example. Similar to, what do you do when you plant a seed. Do you dig it up every few days to ensure it is growing? Do you fret and worry? Do you focus on how it isn’t growing yet or do you know it will show up in time? What do you do?

You know you gave your order. You know you planted the seed. What can you do? Wait. Wait and enjoy the time you are waiting. You never get your time back. You can fret and waste it. You can be distracted and focus on the less than glorious other things.

Patience Is All About The Attitude You Maintain While You Wait

Or, you can enjoy the time you have. You can do something positive. You can read. You can talk about or think about wonderful other events and things. It’s your time. How do you want to spend it? As for the plant, consider your joy as the nutrients it needs to grow.

How do you make muscles grow? You work out. Then you rest. You don’t grow them consciously. They grow on their own with proper rest and nutrition. You don’t grow the plant. Nature does. You don’t cook and serve your food, the restaurant does. Know your part!

Let go. When you enjoy and feel your best you reduce resistance. You allow. You’re receptive. Receive all the good things. Your food, and the plant, will be there in the time it takes to get it to you. Don’t micro manage the restaurant or the universe. It is not your job.

Blessings Can’t Come If You Are Not Willing And Ready To Receive

You can’t anyway. You can only do your part! Do what need to do to put in a clear, concise order. Determine what seed you plant. Then do it. Do your part, your work, then rest. Then wait. Allow your work to come to fruition. Attitude is everything. How you wait is the key!

Waste or ruin your time or wait joyfully. Plant another different seed or involve yourself in a different project. Let the current one come to you. Get it? Enjoy YOUR time. Have fun. Do anything else that fulfills you. Keep the faith. You did what you could do. Relax, let go. Wait.

When you get your food, accept it. Be delighted when the plant shows up. Feel good about the muscles you grow. You did your part and you get the results you get. All you can and should do is wait wonderfully while nature takes care of everything else. Accept it graciouly. Enjoy it. Delight.  Now, until and after you get what you want, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

The Secret To Success: Become An Excellent Giver And Receiver

Is there a way to increase the speed and likelihood of good things coming your way? Yes, indeed. Think and do good things first. Like attracts like. Be open and optimistic. Allow others to support you and do good things for you in return. Don’t dismiss other’s kindness.

Don’t diminish things by saying, ‘it was nothing,’ or ‘you shouldn’t have,’ or ‘you don’t have to’. Say, ‘you are welcome, my pleasure’, and ‘thank you!’ BE grateful. Be pleased. Enjoy the return. Accept good things that come your way. Feel blessed and celebrate. Receive!

You give. You allow. You create an intention and with faith take inspired actions to make it happen. You then allow. Get out of the way and let things happen. It doesn’t mean you quit giving or doing. It means you let things unfold without micromanaging. Receive!

The Thankful Receiver Bears The Bountiful Harvest

Be open and available. Allow it to come in whatever form it comes in. It may not come in the form of cash. It could come in the form of energy, or freed up time or a form of assistance from others. It could come in the form of a a new friendship. It can come in any way!

It can come in any form and in any number of different ways. Unless you are alert and aware, you may not recognize it. YES, it could come in the of cash, if that is what you gave or put out. You want to recognize it and celebrate it. You want to feel blessed. Feel it fully.

You want to realize the harvest. Recognize and acknowledge it. Celebrate feeling blessed. When you recognize the return you increase your faith and willingness to continue. Then you spiral up into more good things. Like attracts like. You get more good back!

The Secrets Of The Universe Are Energy Vibration And Frequency

Understand, it’s not for you to dictate how it comes back to you. Just as it is not for you to dictate how others use what you give. Let the unexpected happened. Let yourself be surprised and delighted. Open yourself up. Trust in what is. That is faith! That is believing.

Remember, ‘ask, believing you will receive and you will receive.’ Through faith you shape your  mindset to experience miracles and magic every moment; small and large. Be on the lookout for good things coming your way. You are likely to find what you look for.

Be on the lookout for good, because it will come. Relax. Trust. Be open and available. Be an excellent giver. Be an excellent receiver. Expect miracles. Expect unexpected good. Anticipate things working out. Give cheerfully and receive cheerfully. Be positive and joyful.

Universe Gives Without Discrimination – The Sun Shines On All

The more open and aware you become, the more good you find. Never be disappointed if things don’t work out as planned. Be open to new surprises. Know it will work out eventually.  Be curious about how good will come your way; how it will all work out for good.

Go with the flow. What is IS. Learn to adjust and carry on. Continue. Know that you can always create of find a way. Be flexible! Wonder and discover what potential good is in the new version of what is happening.  Welcome goodness and opportunity into your life.

When you are welcoming, it can come to you. Invite goodness by first sharing goodness. It begins with YOUR thoughts, and feelings and actions. YOU get back what YOU put out. Be both; an excellent giver and an excellent receiver. Life becomes truly fascinating. Celebrate it all. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Givers Get – Go First And Receive!

How do you get what you want? How do you create it and make it happen? How do you attract it? How can you most easily transform you and your life? If you apply this principle to your daily experience you will find yourself evolving much more rapidly. Ready for this?

It is mindset. It is attitude. It is creating a new habit; new neural pathways. Whether or not it is magical, or of god or the universe, infinite intelligence or your own brain doesn’t matter to me. Believe what is appropriate for you. Every culture has a version of this.

I mentioned tithing. Biblically, the principle is to take 10% of your first efforts, your grain, your livestock, your money and put that into action for god. Again, feel free to believe as you do. The point is to earmark the first portion and put it into a particular use.

Successful People Can Look For Opportunities To Help Others

Pay god first. Pay yourself first. Give to charity. Do something wonderful with it. The principle I refer to is: GO FIRST and know that givers get. You are generous with your goods, your love, attention, peace, respect,, loyalty, friendship, time and money.

When you do this, you develop a mindset beyond scarcity and lack. When scarcity and lack doesn’t affect you, you are free to discover well-being and wealth. Get it? You reorganize your thoughts, your perceptions, your practices and your habits. You become different.

One email I received yesterday from a marvelous person and friend, Karen Barben, exemplifies her recent experience with tithing. In her case she tithed at church. I leave what you do, up to you. Here are her words. Consider how you might apply the principle in your life.

Givers Advance The World – Give Love – Peace – Understanding

‘You totally nailed something in today’s blog, and you could not possibly have known this about me, because I don’t believe that I’ve shared it. I started tithing regularly at the beginning of the year when my church had a “90-day challenge” that I participated in.

‘It ended the end of March, but I’ve kept going … The floodgates literally opened the same week that I started. Now, we are half-way through the year, and I’ve already made more to-date than my last year’s entire income. I have also started paying forward my financial’

‘blessings to others and to charities, as well, (which I only sporadically had done in the past).  It is true that the more that I give, the more that I get.  Not that I “want” anything material or physical, because I don’t  I’m so “over” the material world,’ that the extra’

Be An Excellent Giver And Become An Excellent Receiver

‘money, though appreciated, is used to help others. … I got chills when I saw your message, because you would have not had any idea that I’ve been going through that.  As well, my friend Michael, and one of my colleagues at work started doing the same thing for the

‘same “challenge” at church, and both have repeatedly remarked on how the floodgates opened with such force as they’ve never experienced before, that they were shocked.  We all were, really.  It’s truly amazing.’ Thank you for you wonderful blogs.’

I still read them early every morning before I hit the road, and oftentimes refer to them during the day.  Life is grand.’

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

There you have some of Karen’s words and experience. Remember, I am not suggesting you do anything with your money. I am suggesting you learn the principle of givers get, and GO FIRST. You make things happen by what you initiate. You put things into operation. Get it?

You use your mind and your actions in new ways. If you want to play with the experience, that is up to you. If you want to feel a bit more generous, give more of your attention, your respect, your time. Tip a little better. Help others out. How you apply these principles and whether you apply any of my suggestions is completely up to you. Be grateful and celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

How Come Nothing Seems To Change For The Better?

“What happens when you pursue your dreams and goals? You believe you have done everything ‘right’ but you see no evidence of change. Circumstances  remain the same or even get worse. You think, ‘what on earth is going on?  It is worse than before!’

Economist Dr. Rudi Dornbusch  said,  ‘Things takes a much longer time coming than you think, and then it happens much faster than you would have thought.” Napoleon Hill shared a very similar concept. The time it takes is the time it takes. You can’t force it.

Essentially, Hill said, when people pursue money, it takes as long as it takes, but when it comes it does so fast it is scary.  Hang in there. A seed planted takes time to bear fruit. Be patient. It is darkest before the dawn. Sometimes, it is very dark and turbulent prior.

Difficult Roads Often Lead To Beautiful Destinations

Hill said of the 520 richest people on earth that he studied and modeled, all of them had disappointment after disappointment, even catastrophe before breaking through. Similar to a roller coaster ride there were numerous uphill climbs and down times. It was tough.

This tends to happen almost without exception. When you decide to go after things you shake things up and make changes in the atmosphere. You pursue and you struggle. The journey may be difficult and long. You can’t see when it will come. You must trust.

How you wait is then secret ingredient. It is not THAT you wait but HOW you wait.  Trust the universe’s timing. It is out of your hands. You can’t know everything. I saw an info graphic today.  It read, ‘A Rolls Royce takes six months to make, a Toyota takes thirteen hours’.

Until You Are Broken You Don’t Know What You Are Made Of

Learn to have faith. This means letting go of how it shows up AND when it shows up. Trust, means knowing it will show up at the right moment. Hill stated, you must remain passionate and certain you will make it happen. Expect it, even though you don’t know when.

Certainty in the face of opposition IS how we grow. If it were easy we wouldn’t evolve much. Having to believe and keep the faith in spite of obstacles, and in spite of no evidence anything will happen for us, is how we develop this certainty. How else would we?

We grow by opposition, just as muscles grow by resistance. Consider the time between the moment you decide to make it happen and the moment it does happen, as your time to learn and evolve into the kind of wonderful person you can be. It is you very special time.

The Caterpillar Doesn’t Know It Is Going To Become A Butterfly

You will encounter doubts, opposition, worry, fear and down times. Feel blessed. Whenever these occur it is an opportunity to make changes. If you think, ‘it will never happen. I can’t do it.’ This is a belief you have held. Now, that it is up and in the open, change it.

It reared its head for you. You are facing it. It isn’t in the dark. It is out in the open. NOW, is when you can do something about it. Now, is when you can shift to the belief you would prefer to have. Now, you can take charge and learn to manage your thoughts and feelings.

Making the decision to go after your dream, pursuing it and waiting expectantly while you pursue it, is all part of making it happen. The seed grows under the cover of the earth and you can’t see exactly when it will break through. It will. Have faith. Be grateful for the journey. Gratitude will make the journey much more delightful and easier. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Your Eyes Always Deceive You

“Your eyes will always deceive you. So will your ears. In fact, all of our senses deceive us on a regular basis. Still, people insist they will believe something only when they see it. This, is a sad state of affairs. Our neurology deceives us. Our brains see, our eyes really don’t.

We interpret what we see. The mind does the real seeing. We pay attention to limited amounts of information. Our brain filters much of the incoming data. We make associations and connect memories to what is going on. We miss much of what else may be there.

We have biases. We have habitual ways of noticing things and of missing things. What we pay attention to determines much of how things go. We can miss opportunities right in front of us because we are paying attention to something else at the time. What to do?

Expect The Best And Get It – Expectations Shape Your Results

If you want to see something, believe that you will. This is how it actually works. Expectations can shape our results. Expect it to be a good day, no matter what, and you are more likely to have one. Expect the best and you are more likely to find it. Believe it!

Things may come along that throw a wrench into the day, but if your expectation is that you can have a good one, no matter what, you can handle it, all will ultimately be fine, you are far more likely to. Your attitude determines what you pay attention to. Mindset matters.

Expect to be healthy, rich, loving and kind. Expect your best. Expect the best of others. Expect the best outcome in any situation and you are more likely to make that happen. You marshall your resources when you think positively and optimistically. Put yourself in charge.

Attitude Is Everything – You Get What You Focus On 

Believe miracles are possible and you are more apt to discover one. What you focus on expands. Energy flows where your attention goes. Manage your thoughts and your expectations. Believe everything always works out for the best. Believe in yourself.

Be thankful for the opportunities each day to discover how blessed you actually are. Count your blessings. Discover your blessings. The more you look and are grateful, the more you will find. Delight in all of it. Everything can be wonderful. It really can. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What I Learned From Manifesting Parking Spaces

“What I learned from manifesting a parking space I didn’t expect to actually get. Miracles happen. Lessons abound. Keep the faith. Make things happen and accept whatever is. I settled for the first spot instead of risking and going for the one right in front.

So what it is all good. It is what it is. Allow it. Trust it. Continue to create and attract and allow and accept. Don’t try to push the water. Understand that this or something better exists for me. Everything IS a blessing, an opportunity and a learning. Take from that. Learn.

I got exactly what I wanted. A spot right in front AND a back up spot. Precisely, as I imagined them. I created the back up because I wasn’t convinced I could get the first spot. Always go for what you want. In this case I got both and took the second one because it was there.

What You Think And Feel Always Manifests – Do You Notice It

I encountered it first. Rather to be safe than sorry I snatched it. The other one was around the corner waiting. I couldn’t see around the corner. My unexpected good was right there. It would be easy to blame or make myself wrong but NOPE. That isn’t the case.

I created what I wanted. I got what I was ready in that moment to accept. No harm no foul. All is good. I don’t take this to mean take more risks. Nope. I did what I did. What amazes me most is that even while I didn’t believe I could have what I wanted I got all of it.

Then I didn’t take the prime spot. So what. I create or attracted or lucked into both spots. Whatever you want to think about it there are lessons here. What are yours? I am still learning from it. I could say more but enough for today. Bottom line celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Can You Visualize And Make Things Happen?

“I learned a lesson about manifesting by manifesting a parking space. Something so small many people would call it a coincidence. Perhaps. Still, see what you can derive and learn from this example from my experience. You may come away with a lot of insight.

I stayed at an apartment, in an area, that did not require a nighttime parking permit. Across the street to the south and a block a way a permit was required. This is where I would park if I couldn’t find a space on my street. My street was packed and spaces were rare.

They were much rarer if you parked there after 5pm. During the previous week no spots were available after 5 or 5:30 pm. I was going to be traveling the next day. I’d been at a meeting which was delayed. I left at 7:30 pm. I knew I’d have to park a block away.

What You Hold In Your Head You Can Hold In Your Hand

I decided at that moment to create a spot for myself right in front of the gate to the apartment. I saw it clearly in my mind. I affirmed that this was what I wanted. Heck, I’d even take a nearby one around the corner too. That was still close enough. I threw in the 2nd request.

Why? I imagined two spots because frankly, the likelihood of getting a spot in front of my apartment was nearly zero. I didn’t want to be disappointed in not getting one. I doubted there would be one. It was actually difficult for me to muster up enough energy to do it.

My thinking was don’t do this. There won’t be a spot and it will just weaken your convictions. Doubt, is a great de-motivator. I didn’t want to try something and have it not work. If I don’t know it won’t work I am willing, but I was certain this wouldn’t work. I knew it.

What You See Is What You Get

So I determined the first spot right out front and then a back up spot just in case. Neither were even remotely likely. I drove up the street and lo and behold the back up spot was available. I thought better take it now while it is here. I was tempted to drive around the corner.

I wanted there to be a spot in front of the apartment but if I didn’t take this one and there wasn’t I might miss out on this one too. I nabbed it. I parked. I felt good enough. I walked around the corner and there in front was the available space just as I imagined.

Both spots were there. I took the first one  got to, to be safe. This was unreal. Both spots in the exact places I visualized at a time when every day that week, and prior to that, there would be none. I felt fantastic, and a little bit disappointed I didn’t turn the corner first.

What You Focus On Expands – You Get What You Think About

I learned a lot from this experience which I will share soon. What might you have learned from my experience? This is important to explore? What might you have gleaned that you can use to manifest and create what you want in life? Please answer this for yourself.

What are your beliefs? Your convictions? Your doubts? What can you do to assist yourself in beginning to manifest with greater ease?  Take some time. I’ll share more soon. Meanwhile, enjoy! Delight and keep making great things happen. Practice gratitude and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
