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

ENJOY!

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

Giving can be an unconditional act which seems to be the biblical injunction, or it can be a qualified act expecting some form of reciprocation. True compassion, true giving, means you give without qualifications. There are no strings attached.

Don’t worry about how the recipient utilizes your gift. Give and connect with the people you give to.  Treat people as people. Don’t just pass by the people you might give to on the street,  My belief is this form of giving is similar to the biblical form of forgiveness.

Forgive to forgive. Your forgiveness releases you. It has nothing to do with the object of your forgiveness. Let it go and go beyond petty grudges and ‘I’ll forgive but will never forget’ thinking. Give.  Forgive. Love. Help heal freely without qualifications. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Keep The Faith During Turbulent Times

horizons -ice-cave-phil-koch

“Times can be difficult. You or your family may endure hardship. Your neighborhood or city may be going though troubled times. Your country or the world. It can be environmental, financial, societal, or political. There are all manner of challenges and obstacles. It is true.

Whatever your burden; whatever your political persuasion; whatever your religious persuasion; whatever you  fears and concerns for the moment are, keep this in mind; THIS TOO will pass! Perhaps, not as quickly or in the manner you want, but it will.

Be patient, stay clam, fight the good fight civilly (in other words don’t give up because times may be tough) and allow for yourself to be pleasantly surprise. Don’t rain on other people’s parade to save your own. Help each other all be better off. Work as a team to improve.

Just Breathe – Have Faith Everything Will Work Out For The Best

If disappointed, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and continue to persevere. Always remember the pendulum swings both ways. Time is the great leveler and the great healer. Optimism and hope and love and peace are better than negativity, fear, hate and war. Forgive.

Build something better. Don’t lose hope. Keep the faith. Nothing lasts forever. The kite rises highest against the wind. Our challenges, obstacles and problems teach us lessons if we are open. They make us better and stronger. We develop muscle and strength. We win!

If we stop worrying and learn from these tough lessons we will be able to accomplish more of what we want in the future. Live and let live. Learn and grow. Laugh off the difficulties and be larger than the problems facing you! Keep the faith! A better day truly is ahead!

Let Go A Little And Just Let Life Happen – Relax And Have Faith

Focus on the good you want to bring about. Stop concentrating on what is wrong. Look at the solutions and work to make those happen. Appreciate what you already have right now. Never give in or lose faith. Focus on reason to be grateful and glad. Persevere.

Positive thinking IS NOT thinking ‘there are no weeds, there are no weeds.’  It is the systematic application of strong productive thoughts to resolve any difficulty and move ahead. Think the best so you feel the best. You are more resourceful at the top of your game.

This is why you want to learn to manage your thoughts and feelings You want to have control of your thinking, your mind, any time,  but especially in tough times. In order to be able to do that you need to practice and practice to build the skill. Make it a habit. Only you can.

If Things Haven’t Worked Out Yet – It Is Not Yet The End

Then when the going is tough you are prepared. Without opposition you don’t grow strong. Welcome difficulty for how it can make you a better person if you learn while going through it. Practice gratitude and positive thinking. Focus on the good. Focus on all you can appreciate. It makes a real difference when you celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have a marvelous day!

To Get What You Want Learn To Accept The Timing Of The Universe

hhorizons-ere-we-stand-phil-koch

“You can’t push a rope. You can’t be two places at once. You can’t turn back the clock. You can’t advance the clock. You can’t step into the same river twice. You can’t hurry mother nature. Accept it. Give in. Go with the flow. Stop insisting the flow goes with you.

The universe has its own time. When you plant a seed you have to wait until it germinates, breaks the soil, and bears fruit. That is the natural progression of things. Plant, wait and harvest. When it rains you wait for it to stop. When it doesn’t rain you wait for it to start.

An aspect of manifesting what you want is being open and ready to receive. Receive what is there for you. Be willing for it to arrive however it arrives. Be willing to receive it WHEN it shows up. In the mean time wait expectantly and enthusiastically. Don’t force when.

Trust That You Will Have Everything You Need When You Need It

When it happens is when it happens. Where you are is where you are. You don’t know what you don’t know. You are in the right place right now whether or not you realize it. Most don’t, or won’t. Hence, they miss opportunities that are plentiful and immediate.

Right here, right now, is incredible opportunity. How and when and where it shows up for you is determined by you, and your thoughts and attitude. Do your part and wait. How you wait determines how long you wait. Let go and enjoy. Be patient. Allow.

I love the freeway mediation I have described numerous times in these blog pages. You are right there in the middle of traffic. It does whatever it does. You either go with it or you resist it. Whichever you do determines the kind of experience you have.

Trust The Timing Of Your Life – Trust The Timing Of The Universe

Pleasant or unpleasant it is all up to you. Act. Wait. Enjoy! I’m not suggesting you do nothing while waiting. I am suggesting ‘how’ you wait determines what and when you get what you are seeking. Let go of your agenda and be open to a greater one. Do you get it?

Celebrate the universe. Celebrate that everything happens when it happens. Yes, work to make it happen but let go of the outcome. Let go of how it shows up. Pursue and be ready to receive. Commit 100% and know it will happen. How and when no one really knows.

It just will! Certainty, trust, faith, optimism, positivity all work together. Gratitude for what you have been through, what you have and what you will have is important. Living in appreciation opens doors for more. It opens your mind and heart  to receive. So receive. Delight in all. Be thankful. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How delighted can you be today?
