Are You Failing Because You Are Distracted? Yes!

“My recent blogs were devoted to two concepts; why you fail and is media, and more, distracting you from your goals and dreams? There are many factors that usurp your power. If you aren’t able to realize the power you have, you may never maximize your potential.

The distractions, those deliberately imposed, and those that simply arise in daily living, compete for your attention. They rob you of focus. They lead you astray when you succumb to them. Your thoughts become diluted so the results you get are weakened.

If you are distracted, you may never realize your true self and what you are capable of achieving. Because you are ‘caught up’ you miss out. Napoleon Hill called it ‘drifting’, as a cork bobs along in the current. There is no power in drifting. Power is in your focus.

Everything Is Energy – Your Thoughts Begin It …

Power is in your decisions and determination. Power is in managing your thoughts, feelings, and actions. If anything can distract you, it will lead you away from what is most important. If it can take you away from pursuing your goals and dreams, it will. You lose out.

That is why, social networking, popular books, movies, music, gossip, bad news, is dangerous. It takes you out of the game. Your focus isn’t on who  you can become, and what you can accomplish, it’s caught up in the bad news and banter on your feed. Focus is everything!

Energy flows where your attention goes. What you focus on expands. You become what you think about most frequently. I’m not saying there isn’t room for entertainment or frivolity that makes you feel good. There is plenty of room for it. It’s how much time is spent?

… Your Emotions Amplify It – Your Actions Increase Its Momentum

If most of your time is caught up in media distraction, daily distractions, traffic and nuisances in work and home life, then less time is spent focused on what you want. If you get what you focus on,  how will you get what you want, if you’re not focused on it?

You have to control what you pay attention to. That is why it is important to read and listen to material that inspires and motivates you to continue your pursuit, daily. It is why you need to hang out with positive like minded people who are making things happen.

It is the reason you attend seminars and events and invest in yourself. All of these help you to stay focused on your goals and dreams, and expand your imagination to include more good things. Spend more time on what is important, and less time on what isn’t.

Take Back Your Attention – Energy – Time And Emotions 

Affirm and visualize. Enjoy making your world what you want it to be. Contribute to others positively, and allow them to contribute to you. That is much better for you than the latest bad news or gossip. The goal, of the powers that be, is that you spend money trying.

If you become what you want to be, you live life on your terms. You have choice and power. You can opt in or opt out. If you are always struggling you are spending your time, energy and money to become. If you never become you keep struggling. Get it? It’s a cycle.

Put an end to the distractions. You get nowhere drifting and being wishy washy. Focus! Focus yourself. Become a laser beam and enjoy the process. Find the people, things, and circumstances you are grateful for and focus on these, instead. You’ll get more bang for this buck than discussing headlines. Get it? Practice gratitude. Live fully. Delight in life. Manage your thoughts and your feelings and actions and results will align. FOCUS! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

First Tame The Mind Then Transcend The Mind

“Enlightenment can happen in an instant but it often happens in stages. We progress in the process of remembering who we truly are. You must first tame the mind and then transcend it. The difficulty for most people is they do not realize that you have choice.

Becoming aware that you have choice, is a first step. Taking control and managing your thoughts, brings you that awareness. Become aware that you were thinking less than glorious, negative thoughts and feelings and shift, instead, to positive, thinking and feeling.

You begin to manage your thinking process. It begins with awareness and by exercising your choice. You choose to move from negative to positive. You take control and manage your mind. You become its boss. You stop being the victim of your own mind.

Mind Is A Beautiful Servant But A Dangerous Master – Go Beyond

Once you take control of your thinking, and learn to shift your thinking, manage your thoughts and feelings, you’ll begin to realize you are not those. You are not your thoughts. Most people do not recognize this important difference. You are not your thoughts!

You are beyond those. YOU ARE beyond those. When you begin to realize you’re beyond those, you are not your thoughts, you’re not your feelings, you are not the body, then the possibility of transcending emerges. You are the one choosing.  YOU are!

This is an important realization to embody. There is someone who is choosing. Presently, if you are like most people, you aren’t in touch with the one who is choosing, because most people identify with their thinking. That is the illusion, the maya, the deception.

No Meditation – No Life – Know Meditation – Know Life

First, learn to change the mind, to manage and control it. Then, realize you are the one making the choices beyond the mind. You are able to watch it and decide which to choose. Then, you actually choose and implement the changes. You are beyond the mind.

You have always been.  You just don’t know that yet. Perhaps, intellectually you can entertain the concept, but it is not your present reality, yet. You just don’t experience it because you’ve been living as a victim of the mind. One day that will end. You’ll wake up.

Tame the mind and you go beyond it. When you go beyond it, is when you can discover your original self. You come home to the fact that you are source. You have always been source disguised as a fragment. You are the ocean in the drop. You are one with all.

Get Out Of Your Head And Into Your Heart – Think Less Feel More

The drop is always still the ocean. There is no difference. You just don’t know it, yet, but you can and you will.  Tame the mind and you’ll transform the mind. Transform the mind and you will transcend the mind.  You will become one, and be at home inside yourself.

The charade, the game will end when you realize who you truly are. So be grateful. The game of playing hide and seek with yourself will end and you will be one. Be grateful that you have chosen to play this game. Be grateful because every moment, every person, every event, every situation is designed to help you wake up. All of it IS a blessing. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!

Make each moment marvelous!

Everything Is A Blessing!

“This mindset that may seem difficult to adopt or accept at first,  but if you do, you can get fantastic results. Any time we want to change or add in new behaviors or skills, we must first overcome inertia and the tendency, we have, to remain the same. That’s just how it is.

Overcoming inertia is the part of the process where most people give up. They try for a while and then throw in the towel claiming it is too hard. Of course, it seems that way at first. If you never played basketball or chess, starting out can be tough. It just is.

There are many new and different things you have to get used to. If it is fun and the end result is deemed most desirable, you might keep going long enough to get proficient at it. Getting over that beginning hump is the key to progressing long term. You just have to keep at it.

Happiness Can Only Exist In Acceptance – Accept And Allow

This mindset can seem tough, at first, but the payoff can be enormous. The resistance to it will be old, chronic thoughts and conditioning. Our limiting beliefs will raise their heads. So, get over that and commit to moving yourself forward. It is truly worth it.

Adopt this mindset, this way of thinking and viewing the world.  Whatever it is, whatever happens, all of it, everything included, IS as it is supposed to be. It is what it is!  You are lucky and blessed to have the opportunity to experience it. It is all good.

Ultimately, everything will turn out for your good. It is all a blessing and you may not yet be able to see around the corner, what is coming, but it is all an incredible blessing, no matter what it is. It is all as is should be. Accept and allow and feel blessed. Celebrate.

Become A Generous Giver And An Incredible Receiver

It is an opportunity to explore new things you may never have considered. Stop labeling. Most of our problems are due to our thinking about them. It is how we chronically consider the situations that occur in our life that upset us. It is our perception of them.

Consider it all a big game. Life is one big, fun, adventurous game. It includes all kinds of drama, and scares, and heartbreak and good things and thrills, that a really fun game might include.  All of your challenges and hardships are part of the game.

They are there for you to have fun.  They are there to help you transcend. They aren’t there to hold you back but to strengthen you. Everything you encounter, good or not so good, is a blessing. You are living here. That is a gift. Whatever is going on is a gift. Life is a gift!

Accept The Present Moment As If You Have Chosen It – Accept

Imagine everything IS as it should be. It is all designed for your ultimate good. You are strong enough, big enough, you have all the resources, you can overcome any difficulty, ride out any storm and you can play, have fun and win the game. It is an adventure!

Remember, I am not saying this is true, I am saying this is a mindset you adopt. I am suggesting how you think about things determines whether you sink or swim. If, when you encounter difficulty, you label it as bad and overwhelming, that impacts your results.

Develop a powerhouse mindset that gets your through any troubles. Develop a mindset that is compassionate towards yourself and others, while being strong willed. Love, have peace, support others, allow them to support you. Be confident, have fun, explore.

What You Deny Or Resist Delays And Persists

Life is process. Stop resisting what comes your way. What you resist persists. Instead, allow, accept, invite and receive. Think, ‘I am bigger than my problems. They are here as a blessing and as an opportunity for me to grow, evolve and develop.’ Try this thinking hat on.

You might not grow and evolve as much as you could if these challenges were not present. The reason why most people have problems is because they fight them. They keep the problems going by attempting to resist them. They try to ignore, BUT they live them.

They think about the problem, speak about it to self or others. They label it bad. They feel bad. When feeling bad they aren’t at their optimum so the issues persist and they spiral downward. They whine, complain, excuse and continue into the mire. Thoughts!

What You Face And Accept You Conquer 

All of us have problems. Get over the notion that life may be free of them. Instead of judging them as bad things consider them blessings for your own good. Live as if everything is a blessing. All of it, every itsy bitsy bit of it is good. All the drama is good. It is all good!

When everything is a blessing, when every moment is a gift and every second is a joy, then your life can be truly magnificent and incredible. That is when you are invincible and unstoppable. You can manifest and create whatever you want, whenever you want. When your mindset and being are aligned you live more fully. Live in gratitude and joy. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why Some Succeed While Others Fail

“Some people think one’s ability to think positive is silly. They don’t believe it is good for anything. In fact, they believe it may be hoping against hope that something comes to pass and that most positive thinkers only end up getting disappointed. Do you think this is true?

I think it is possible that anyone, at anytime, could get disappointed. Things don’t always work out as planned. That is for certain. I don’t think positive thinking will get you to do anything.  BUT, you will get better results with positive thinking, than with negative thinking.

Positive thinking doesn’t ensure things happen a certain way. It means you have control over your mind to look for solutions when things go wrong, instead of spiraling down in defeat. It means you have trained your mind to look for possibilities and opportunity.

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

Things may, and do, go wrong for the positive thinker. But the positive thinker overcomes that which goes wrong. The positive thinker overcomes because the positive thinker has trained their thinking in the same way an Olympic athlete trains to do their best.

It is worth it to learn to control your thoughts and feelings. Your mindset and attitude do control how far you travel. Some people are stopped by limiting beliefs, thoughts of fear and anxiety, or for any number of reasons. The optimistic positive thinker may not be.

The positive thinker doesn’t succumb to excuses, reasons, blames and complaints because the positive thinker is conditioned to rise above them. Positive thinking is learning to be in charge of your mind so you can get the results you determine to get.

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

Positive thinking is brain training. It is training your mind to submit to you. You are in charge and your thoughts support you. Your feelings support  you. You take inspired actions. You get more of the results you go after, because nothing detours or stops you.

The positive thinker finds good in all. Finds opportunity and blessings hidden in problems and challenges. The positive thinker is able to adjust, to find or create ways, to succeed in the mission. The positive thinker is able to delight in the journey and not be distracted. The positive thinker celebrates 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

We Are Prisoners Of Our Own Making But We Can Change That!

“Growing up, my main idol was Harry Houdini, escape artist extraordinaire. He was a magician and an escape artist who died in 1926 but whose name is used nearly daily to describe incredible feats. His name became a verb in the dictionary. ‘To do a Houdini’.

What does he have to do with our thoughts? I have shared here how great thought leaders from ancient times through today have pointed out that our only limitations exist in our thinking and what we believe. If we think we can or we can’t, we are right.

Thinking makes it so. Whatever we focus on expands. If we are predominantly negative or don’t think we can, if we don’t believe we can make things happen and design a life to live on our own terms, then it is unlikely we will ever do so. Thoughts stop us if we let them.

A Breakthrough – When The Impossible Becomes Possible

Houdini made a name for himself by going around this and other countries offering to escape from their jail cells. He challenged the police to restrain him and constrain him in such a way that he could not get free. He offered cash rewards to those who could hold him.

He never had to pay. He escaped. He knew what he was doing and beyond that he was a master marketer and publicist. He knew how to get attention. In one jail, he was stripped naked as usual. Searched to make sure he had no keys or lock picks and then shackled.

The door is closed and locked. The jailers and press leave. Typically, within a certain amount of time Houdini would emerge dressed and free of the shackles having escaped the locked cell. Houdini is now inside a cell, his jailers gone and he is working on the cell lock.

The Mind That Perceives The Limitation Is The Limitation

He can’t pick it. He used hidden picks but today it was not working. An hour went by and he began to panic. He had never encountered a jail cell lock he couldn’t pick. He kept trying. His entire reputation was on the line. If he failed his career was over. He couldn’t pick it.

Another passed. He was covered in sweat. Afraid. Near exhaustion he collapsed against the jail cell door and it swung open. What? It swung open! The jailers, in all the commotion, had forgotten to lock the door. They simply shut it and left the room. No one realized.

Not even Houdini. Shocked, but relieved, he quickly dressed and exited the cell triumphant. Headlines in the paper praised his escape. Only Houdini knew the truth until he revealed it years later. He was a prisoner of his own mind. He thought the door was locked.

Life Becomes Limitless When You Become Fearless

That is the same with each of us. We are prisoners of our own limiting thoughts and beliefs. We have assumptions we grew up with that go unchallenged. We think we can’t or are not good enough. We must stop believing the limitations and instead challenge them.

Whenever you doubt you can do anything positive that would mean a good change for you and for others you should stop. Stop doubting you can and start doubting that you can’t. You should doubt your limitations. Stop believing them. Know you can and doubt you can’t.

Our beliefs and thoughts are old conditioning we adopted growing up. Perhaps, useful at one time or in a particular context, they need to be evaluated and challenged. Houdini learned to always check each door after that just in case someone left it open. He learned.

The Only Thing Limiting Us Is Our Belief There Are Limits

We can learn too. We can learn to go beyond limitations and stop being a prisoner of our own thinking. We can excel and move forward in positive ways when we give ourselves reasons to. Find your strengths and talents. You have so many. Begin appreciating yourself. Be grateful for who you are. Feel blessed. Realize you are incredibly resourceful. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Change Your Thoughts And You Can Change The World!

“You determine what your world will be. Your decisions and your thoughts influence your reality. It all depends on what you choose to make it.  You can soar to unbelievable heights, you can experience success and happiness beyond belief or you can settle for okay.

Or worse. You can live afraid, in fear, worry, doubt, lack and misery. The choice is yours. It is your choice and yours alone. Right now you are creating and sustaining the world you live in. You can continue to perpetuate it or change it. You’re where your thoughts brought you.

When you choose to manage your thoughts and feelings and create a positive mindset you become an unstoppable force. You take charge. You shape yourself and your destiny. You create your future by becoming a powerful, positive creative person of action.

With An Open Mind Accept That Anything Is Possible – Believe

You can create a happy, fulfilled romantic life, you can enjoy the love of your family and friends and improve all your relationships. You can create a fulfilling career. You can take charge of your physical health, your mental and spiritual well-being. All of it is possible!

You can do the things you want, travel to the places you have dreamed of and acquire the things and true riches of life. To change you must change from the inside out. You begin by changing yourself. You begin by learning what you are truly capable of.

You learn how powerful your thoughts are. You discover how powerful you are to make things happen. Most people, sadly, never know. They continue to live from worn out prior negative conditioning that keeps them trapped and weak. You don’t have to!

Your Thoughts And Your Words Create Your Experience

Exercise your mind power. When you do, you change your world. Your own brain begins to look for opportunities you otherwise might have missed. When you are no longer focused on lack and worries you begin to see and take advantage of what else is there. It’s true!

That puts your on a positive track!  You change your life for the better. You create and attract new people, events and circumstances into your life. You take advantage of new opportunities. You create your future and make your dreams come true. You alter the world.

You positively influence the people you come in contact with. You change your daily behaviors and begin to live life on your terms. BUT it starts within. From within to without. It begins with your decisions to become aware and no longer live from past conditioning.

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

You recondition. You re-train your brain to be a positive, automatic, reliable, opportunity seeking force. You make your life the one you want to live instead of living less than gloriously. Fill your mind with positive thoughts. Affirm and declare daily. Visualize what you want.

Spend most of your time feeling good. Do those things I have shared with you in these blog pages. Create a daily ritual, a daily positive routine. Practice gratitude. Keep a list. Write it down. Journal your wins. Look for the good and new. Meditate. Allow, expect and anticipate wonderful experiences. You will change your life! Delight and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
