Why You Should Celebrate Troubling Times And Circumstances!

“My post yesterday posited that everything is a blessing. Whether or not that is ‘true’ everything can be viewed as a blessing. It is all about our perception, our mindset and whether that supports us or not. When you fill your being with gratitude, everything transforms.

Gratitude is the fastest and healthiest means of positively changing everything about yourself, and your life, for the better. That means true gratitude. Actually, feeling the feelings. The more we feel deep appreciation, and lasting thankfulness, the more we benefit.

The way to develop gratitude is to begin becoming aware of what things, people, events and circumstances there are in your life, all around you, at any moment, that you can give thanks for. Look around and note them. It doesn’t matter how big or small.

Train Yourself To Look For And Find The Blessing In Everything

Write them down. Keep a daily gratitude journal. List 10 or 25 things each day. While you do, sense the appreciation you have for each. Look back over your life and and connect the dots. You might be grateful for both the good and bad times that brought you to today.

Celebrate the lessons, too. Anything and everything. The more you find that you are already grateful for, the more room you make for more good things in your life. Delight in all. Let go of the negativity and focus on being grateful and positive. Live it up! Live IT up!

Celebrate and be grateful no matter what happens. If you can celebrate tough times, and be thankful, they no longer are as bad. You take the sting and power out of them if you think, ‘hooray, crack out the champagne and let’s celebrate this!’ It is 100% attitude!

Be Different Than Most – Count Your Blessings Not Your Problems

You either are bigger than all of your obstacles and challenges or you are not. Make it a point to be bigger. Be a champion, a winner, a victor. Live like you are! Act like you are! Claim it! Declare it! No matter how bad times are, you are capable to handle them well.

Everything is a blessing is as true today as it was yesterday. Times change. Things get better and things get worse. Everything is still a blessing. Troubled times are a sign that things are changing. Boiling water is always noisiest prior to the rolling boil. Molecules banging.

Things get agitated. Heated up. In our daily lives and all around us. It is all good. It is what it is! When the economy goes bad, many become very rich. It isn’t the times or events that determine the outcome but your attitude. Can you find opportunity in them?

Be Grateful For The Small Things The Big Things And Everything

Make it a point to focus on the blessing. You may not know what is coming next. Expect the best. Expectations shape results. Intend it to be the best. If it isn’t, adjust and continue. Find or create a way to be thankful, to work with what is, and to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Expressing Gratitude Transforms Everything! Don’t Wait Do It Now!

“Are you keeping a gratitude journal? Are you writing in it daily? If you answered yes to both, congratulate yourself. You have another reason to be grateful. If you said no, then NOW is the time to begin. I won’t ask why.  Reasons and excuses don’t matter. Just do it.

Gratitude expands your ability to see opportunity. It helps you create and attract good things into your life. When you appreciate what IS and what you already have, you make room for more good to come. You transform yourself through the practice of gratitude.

To see everything as a blessing comes with practice. Tough times, pain, sadness, loss are blessings too. Most of us never view them this way, but they are. Instead, we are conditioned to see problems and difficulty. When you can see these as blessings, all is transformed.

Life Is A Priceless Gift – Appreciate Very Minute Of It 

You are free! You are open and available. You no longer resist. You aren’t married to having the outcome according to your dictate. You allow. You accept. You can receive all the magic and miracles because you aren’t trying to manage the flow. You are going with it.

When you go with the flow, expressing gratitude for everything all along the way, you ARE enjoying the journey. That’s what life is all about! Living fully, enjoying now. Delight in the journey! NOW is the only time we actually have. Become present! Live in gratitude.

Transform yourself. Keep a journal. Make a list. Write down 5, 10, 25 things you are grateful for each day. Express your thankfulness and you open up to so much more to come your way!Really,  write them down. When you do you’ll discover much more to appreciate. Live in unconditional acceptance and love. Delight in all. Have fun. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Accept What Is As It Is And Accelerate Your Transformation

“Here’s a mindset that may seem difficult to adopt or except but if you do, I can promise you can get fantastic results. Here goes. Accept what is, as whatever it is is. Consider yourself lucky and blessed to have the opportunity to experience it. Feel lucky!

Whether what IS, is good or not so good, think of it as a game. Think of life, your life as a big, fun, challenging game worth playing. All of your challenges, all of your hardships, everything is there for you to have fun, to be fulfilled, to feel blessed and to transcend it.

It is a blessing! You are here! That is THE gift! What ever is going on IS a gift! You ARE alive. You HAVE so much to be grateful for. There IS so much in the world that is good. YOU ARE ALIVE! YOU GET TO HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE! Accept it. Feel it. Celebrate it! You ‘IS’.

Life Does Not Get Better By Chance But By Change

Stop disliking and start accepting. Start receiving. Start learning. Learn from your challenges and opportunities. Learn from those difficult people and events. These are ALL gifts to you. You ARE lucky to have included them in this life of yours. Get it?

You may not  presently choose to think so, but when you do your life will begin to transform. All of life, ALL OF LIFE, is an incredible, precious gift. Yet, some choose to suffer, whine, complain, blame and excuse. They choose to fear, doubt, worry, get angry and hate.

They, you and I, can always choose, otherwise. Whether we do or not is up to each of us. That is yours and my responsibility. Inside every hardship is an equivalent seed of opportunity stated Napoleon Hill and others. Everything is a blessing and an opportunity to grow!

If You Want Your Life To Change You Must Change Some Things

Thought leaders through out  history have said that you are blessed. We are blessed.  Consider all of life a game and any frustrations and  challenges are part of the fun of playing the game. If there weren’t any hardships to endure and overcome it wouldn’t be much fun.

You wouldn’t want to play against anyone other than a worthy opponent, would you? Teams want to compete against the best teams, don’t they? Masters at their craft want to play or compete against other equal or better masters. Difficult people are yours.

It is what is. Realize it is all a game.  How you go through it depends on your attitude. That is the single most important factor! Your attitude makes all the difference in what you experience. Develop a positive, powerful, optimistic attitude. Be bigger than problems.

Life Is Too Short To Worry About Stupid Things – Have Fun

When obstacles and challenges arise think, ‘Bring it! Is that the best you have? I can handle anything!’ Then do it! Go for it. Adjust and continue. Find or create a way. Remain calm and centered. Be the eye of the hurricane. Live life by your terms not someone else’s.

Be grateful. Be happy. Feel delighted and thrilled with the opportunities and blessings that present so you can grow and evolve and become so much better. Steel is hardened by the flame. Diamonds are created under intense heat and pressure.

The kite rises highest against the wind. Accept and utilize what is. Correct and continue. Have fun. Be curious. Be an explorer and an adventurer. Play the game well. Play the game to win and have fun! Enjoy. Be grateful. Feel it! Express it. Celebrate everything!”

Delight, have fun. Explore today!

You Should Treat Yourself To Some Unconditional Love

“A good habit is to put on positive, inspirational and motivational audios whenever you are driving. It is a great opportunity to feel great, drive safe and learn something of value. Use your time wisely. I hope you enjoyed my audio blog in the last post.

If you haven’t yet listened, be sure to take some time. Today, why not focus on giving to yourself unconditionally. Gift yourself. Accept yourself. Shower yourself with love. Unconditional love. Feel it. Embrace it. You deserve it. If you don’t feel you do, you need it.

Forgive yourself, if you feel you must. Most people have conditions and limits on their love. We don’t have to, but we do. We grew up and learned to behave in certain ways. We learned to feel certain ways about ourselves. We believe ourselves to be certain ways.

Love Is The Absence Of Judgement – Unconditional Love Gives

It is time to let go of that previous conditioning. The way to do it is to treat yourself in loving ways. Be gentle. Be kind. Be open to who you are, and what you think and do, without judgement. Let go of your judgements. Most of them came from other people, anyway.

You are not your thoughts. You are not necessarily who you think you are. In reality you are awesome! You are a resourceful, intelligent, capable, powerful person. You may not have thought so but you are. You are a being of light and goodness. Accept it.

Let your light shine. Reveal yourself to yourself. Allow, accept, and receive yourself. Treat yourself special today. Do something nice for you. Think nice thoughts about yourself. Take yourself out for a good time, a special treat. Go first class if you are able. Treat yourself well.

The Measure Of Love Is To Love Without Measure  Unconditionally

Be glad. Be thankful you are who you are. Enjoy and feel lucky to be you.  Appreciate all of your experiences in shaping you. You have come a long way no matter how old or young. You are a person of great value. Love yourself without limitations. Celebrate yourself. Be filled with gratitude. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

I began this blog, years before on Facebook, posting primarily infographics and articles from others. This has been a passion and love of mine for quite some time. I love our ability to evolve and take control of our destiny. I am thrilled we can live our dreams!

Through ups and downs we can manage our thoughts and feelings and actions and create the life and opportunities we desire. We can begin to live life on our terms. I wanted to write and share about it. I wanted to reveal what I have learned in more than 40 years.

What You Think And Feel And What Manifests Is Always A Match

Hopefully, this blog fulfills its purpose; to inspire and help us feel more grateful. Gratitude is so important. It IS the transformational key. When we can feel blessed, no matter what is going on in us or around us, we are transforming ourselves and the world.

I plan to continue the blog, adding positive changes and more value into the future. I have plans for many more things coming up. Some take time to realize. This blog itself will change name and url sometime soon. We’ve been working on it for quite some time.

I hope you stay with us. I hope you comment and share. I have asked for feedback many times. I have posted a survey. I hope you get involved and let me know how I can best serve and help meet your needs. Please comment, like and share to others so we can grow.

Hold The Vision Trust The Process Fulfill The Mission – Love Life

I thank all my mentors during my life. There have been many in many different fields. Hypnosis and intuition, NLP, accelerated learning, acting and filmmaking, meditation, the science of thought and personal achievement, money management and so much more.

I thank those present in my life and those from ancient times. I am indebted to Napoleon Hill and like-minded thought leaders through time. I am thrilled with all the people I have met, loved, liked and been challenged by during my life-time. I am happy for the struggles.

With that in mind, remember to have fun, delight, stay focused on what you want to create. Build it! Manifest it. Attract it. Make it happen. Have fun, stop trying harder. Start trying smarter. Live, love, laugh, and learn. Feel the goal already achieved. Feel fulfilled.

Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge Live Your Dreams

Be at peace. Remain in harmony with all the people, places and things that surround you. Live from your light. Embrace challenges and opportunities. Spread love. Go the extra mile. Serve others. Give generously and receive abundantly. Thrill and be enthused. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stay invincible!

How To Choose To Be At Peace No Matter What is Going On

“Want some positive relief? Want to feel good today? There are things you can do. Claim control over your own mental attitude. Claim control over your feelings. Stop being a victim of either. Put yourself in charge. Realize now is all you have. Claim your power.

Make the decision that no person, no current event, no situation, no place or thing can annoy you or irritate you. Decide you will remain at peace. Be the eye of the storm. Remain calm and centered no matter what. Decide not to focus on the crap. Focus on the good.

Focus on being enough. Focus on feeling fine. Focus on enjoying the moment. Look for the silver linings. Look for what is good and new that you can appreciate and enjoy. Seek to discover the opportunities surrounding you. From chaos stars are born!

You Get What You Focus On – Thoughts Become Things

Decide to delight. Remember you get what you focus on. Delight, enjoy, be enthused, excited. Fill yourself with good feelings. Happiness is not a destination it is now. Live well. Feel well. Smile more! Wear a big smile. Live from the heart. Think happy thoughts. Giggle and laugh. Move more. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Feel marvelous for no reason!

What I Learned From The Cold And Flu That You Can Too

horizons-destination-unkown-phil-koch

“What happens to most of us when we get a cold or flu? We get symptoms, body aches and pains. It can be an uncomfortable time. Bottom line, we hurt. What actually is happening during this time is our body is fighting the infection, working to heal.

My household got sick. It is plenty tough for each person. I noticed something I have noticed each time I have been ill in my life. Our thoughts, mine sure did, focus on what is wrong. We pay attention to what isn’t right. It is certainly natural because it is not the norm.

For many of us, we not only focus on what is wrong but we talk about it. When asked, we tell others we don’t feel good. Some people can get very descriptive. This only focuses attention on it all the more. Again, we become aware of what feels different from normal.

Let Go Of Negativity – Focus On The Good – What’s Not Wrong

It isn’t wrong. Get that out of your head if you are thinking that. Pain is a signal the body needs to, or is, attending to some things. So, if you find your thoughts going to ‘woe is me’ don’t feel bad or guilty about it. However, I’d like to point something out.

For the most part, a cold or flu is over within a few weeks. Ultimately, you will feel better soon. Some strains, nowadays seem to endure much longer but the bottom line is you will get well. You are in the process of getting well while you are suffering. This is important.

I noticed my thoughts tend to go to what is wrong too. This time, each time, I noticed that occurring I shifted to what feels good or right. What I can do as opposed to what is wrong or what I can’t do. I emphasize the things I can do and am grateful for. It works, too!

What You Say Is What You Get – Affirm What You Want

I can breathe. I can sit. I can move. I can speak. I can think. I can see. I can hear. I can feel. I can sleep. I can eat. I am alive. I can plan. I am able to rest. I can read. I can watch movies. I can listen to audios. There is so much I am so lucky I can do each day. I am blessed now!

It does work wonders. I am not saying I have no discomfort, but it is  an important learning point we can all benefit from. Many things in life can be wrong or uncomfortable. We can, and do, have challenges each day. These draw our attention away from normal.

If we focus on them, they don’t get any better. If we focus on how and why our relationship is broken, how lonely we are, how much debt we have, how much we aren’t where we should be, how we aren’t enough or undeserving, or how much life sucks, guess what?

When You Focus On The Good – The Good Gets Better

We continue to perpetuate it. Ultimately, it might get better. Things usually do in time but we keep it going with what and how we think about it. It is natural, it is painful. Our attention is drawn to it, just like when we get ill. Perhaps, similarly, it is a way for us to heal.

Perhaps, the challenges, the disappointments, and the less than glorious feelings are there because within we are attempting to heal, to correct, to get over these and move forward, but our thoughts keep us locked in, at least temporarily, but it seems as if forever.

What we focus on we get more of. Illness is a prime time to learn to shift focus. I am not saying it is easy at first. As with any skill you get good at eventually, it takes practice and conditioning. Still, it is an opportunity to learn to grow and make things better for oneself.

Focus On The Good – Let Go Of The Bad – Life Is Too Short Not To

Gratitude works wonders in all cases. That shift of focus can be miraculous. When challenged look for the positive, the good, that which you are able to do, feel grateful for and enjoy. Emphasize these as much as possible. As within, so without. Focus.

It makes a difference for ourselves in our personal experience. I believe it can also make a difference in our social, political, economic areas as well. If we can draw our attention to what feels good, and is working, we can better find solutions. We can help changes occur.

Exercise: Find all that is right, and good, in the photo at the top. Meanwhile, drink plenty of water.  When ill, stay hydrated. It is also a great time to get rest. It is a break in normal activities. If you can appreciate that too, you are further ahead. Appreciate anything and everything you can. It works wonders. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Delight in this day!
