Time Is Not The Enemy But Your Friend

Horizons wandering-phil-koch

“You have changes you want to make in your career or your life. Perhaps, you are going through difficult times. You want relief. You have developed a better attitude and are moving in the right direction. Only it doesn’t seem fast enough, right?

Some people who learn about Intentional Creation, Positive Thinking, or the Law of Attraction give it a try and if they don’t get immediate success decide whatever they are doing isn’t working and abandon it. They want improvement overnight.

Instead of hanging in there they claim whatever they tried didn’t work, or at least not for them. No one can estimate the time it will take for you, because no one else is you. I can’t tell you how well, or even if, you actually apply the principles.

The More We Do The More We Can Do

My assessment of you doesn’t matter. Next concept. It takes whatever time it takes for a seed to grow and to flower. I’m sure you already understand this. Everything takes some time. Why is the question? One answer is because it does. Get over it already.

Another is, you actually wouldn’t be happy with immediate manifestation because it would work both ways. Instant success or failure depending on what your predominantly thinking. So that is why it takes some time to manifest. Be thankful in this regard.

I think there is a much better reason. Not because anyone ordains it the answer, but it just seems to work this way. The reason things take time is so that you can get to be better. The reason things take time is so it is attributable to YOUR efforts and not luck or accident.

Time Shows Us What Really Matters

Things don’t manifest right away to give you practice. Time allows you to develop good habits. You can build the habit of right thinking. Otherwise, you would think it is luck and you don’t benefit from luck. You greatest benefit is from truly conditioning your mind.

Once you condition your mind, once you learn how to control your thinking then anything can be yours. You become more powerful, and wise through experience BECAUSE things take time. You evolve and develop your attitude, abilities and talents. You improve!

The more we do the more we can do is one of my favorite sayings. Things take time so we can grow and develop our skills to become more of whomever and whatever we want to be. We learn the nuance of great power and deliberate attention and control.

The Way We Spend Our Time Defines Who We Are

When things don’t work out fast I accept, perhaps, I need to learn more patience while pursuing my goal. The two concepts are not mutually exclusive. One can be patient and continue to act in one’s behalf. Some people haven’t learned this. Maybe, it is time to.

When things are troublesome or downright tough, perhaps, we learn persistence or the ability to be joyful anyway. When money is tight and debt looms we learn to think and focus on abundance instead. We learn concentration and where and how to focus our energy.

I am not saying there is a god or design to this. There very well may be, but that part doesn’t matter for my explanation. It is through trials we become stronger and well seasoned. We get more back than we could ever imagine. So, I say bring it! I want to learn.

Time Teaches Us How To Live

We learn patience, faith and trust and much more when things take longer. If it is wham, bam, thank you… it just isn’t as satisfying in the long run. Immediate results don’t always benefit us overall. We live life while waiting for actual seeds to sprout. That applies here too.

While we wait and see things through, life continues. We continue to exercise out focus to keep our attention on what we want even when it doesn’t seem to be happening. We build so many character muscles this way. We can improve in so many different dimensions.

I want to improve. I want to get better at what I have learned to do. I want mastery not accidental results. I want to learn to stick it out and make it happen and live the utmost! I don’t merely want to escape what is, if I don’t it. I want to rule what is. Don’y you?

You Are Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

I have noticed that I am better off and far more happier because things didn’t manifest how or when I had hoped. I have become aware that I am far more delighted and well off because I went through some tough or long times without a quick remedy.

I have learned to be happy without regard to what is going on. Things can be tough or easy and that doesn’t change my happiness. It isn’t acquisition of money, things or people that make me happy but since I am happy I seem to be able to acquire and appreciate those even more. Happiness first is what time has helped me to be.

Time is not the enemy some people think it is. It can be a wonderful and useful friend. Learn to embrace it. Lean to embrace all things and life becomes much more wonderful. Time gives you more opportunities than you can even imagine. Become aware. Seek and you will find them. Meanwhile, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have a wonderful day!

How You Can Help Yourself While Helping Others Through Tough Times

Horizons colder-weather-phil-koch

“We all face tough times, don’t we?  Life throws us curve balls from time to time. That just is the way it is. Times can be hard. The question is do you rise to meet tough times and see them through or do you buckle, cave and let them triumph over you? How do you meet the tough times you go through?

Napoleon Hill maintained that when the going gets tough your sincerity of purpose will sustain you. I love this because so much of what he wrote about was going the extra mile, adding value to others, helping others and applying the Golden Rule. He stated that these practices will help you make your dreams come true.

When others know that their interests are in your heart they can and do go out of their way for you. You could end up with booking more jobs, getting more clients and customers because you become known for delivering quality above and beyond the call of duty. You get known as someone with integrity and who cares.

It is hard to beat that, especially in this day and age when customer service is hard to come by, profits above people rule the purchase. Wages are low, costs are high. People have been demeaned an devalued. Help them, care for them, go that extra mile, deliver on your promises and then some and you will stand out.

I love another story Hill shared about Henry Ford and a woman named Martha Berry, founder of a Northern Georgia school for poor girls and boys. Their parents were not able to pay to send them to school. Times were tough for Ms. Berry and it was difficult to keep the school afloat.

She managed to book a meeting with mogul Henry Ford and requested a small donation to keep the school running. Ford refused. ‘Well then’, she said, ‘would you give us a bushel of peanuts?’ Apparently, this amused Ford so he honored this request. She and the students planted, harvested  and replanted the peanuts.

They made considerable sums of money. She took the money to Ford to show him how she had increased the return on his investment. Because he was so impressed with her and the students efforts he donated farm equipment and tractors.  He gave enough equipment to keep the self-sustaining school in business.

Over the years he contributed more than a million dollars to the school Ms Berry founded. Though skeptical at first, her strong belief in what she was doing convinced Ford to do what he first had refused to do. By her actions and faith she demonstrated that she was fully engaged in an absolutely worthy endeavor.

An endeavor so worthy that she would never let any obstacle or adversity prevent her from prevailing. She would never give in. Ford stated, ‘I couldn’t help but be impressed with her sincerity and the way she applied it on behalf of the needy boys and girls.’ Ms Berry was one who would not let circumstances rule but one who would rule over circumstances.

She demonstrated sincerity, ingenuity, the ability to take action, persistence, and much more, including her dedication and willingness to help others. Hill commented, ‘You can achieve your own goals in life by proving to others you have a sincere desire to help them. If you do,you won’t have to worry about the lean times. You will have more clients or customers than you can handle.’

I think this is a beautiful and excellent reminder to remember we are all in it together. A rising tide floats the entire boat. Together, we can make wonderful things happen. We can and should help others especially the more powerful we become. It reminds us that what we are on the inside will be reflected in what we create on the outside. From within to without. The good we put out there comes back to us!” Rex Sikes

Make it a marvelous day!

Not Able To Get Law Of Attraction To Work? Well, Guess What!

horizons no-regrets-phil-koch

“Frustrated? Not able to get your career or life goals together? That darn Law of Attraction stuff doesn’t work. Well, does it? Have you been asked this question? Law of attraction not working for you?Perhaps, after giving it a shot, that was your conclusion.

Well, guess what? That premise is all wrong. Let me explain.

The Law Of Attraction is one of many laws. Laws, such as the Law of Gravity or the Law of Lift, always work. They do not work sometimes and then not at other times. They always work! Prior to humankind flying one might have said the law of lift doesn’t work except for birds.

The law of attraction is always working. It never stops working. If you are not getting what you want it is not because the law of attraction doesn’t work. It is because you are attracting the wrong things. The attraction is pulling in what you do not want.

Gravity Is Always Working

Consider the law of attraction as the law of gravity because that is what gravity is. Attraction. Little bodies pulled toward larger bodies. You are simply pulling in the stuff you would prefer you didn’t. Hey, it is not your fault. Like the rest of us, you grew up uninformed.

It isn’t your fault. Do not blame yourself. BUT you are responsible. That sounds like a contradiction but it is not. Don’t blame anyone or anything if you haven’t got it to work in your favor, yet. You can and you will if you start doing the correct things today. It is up to you!

Stop paying attention, concentrating, giving energy to, concerning yourself with anything you don’t want to have more of. Poor health, bills, poverty, distress, bad relationships, awful job, whatever! Stop giving anything you don’t want more back of any thought at all.

You Attract What You Are 

Switch your focus to what you DO want. Concentrate and put your energy on what you do want to attract. Yes, you still have to pay your bills but learn to do so gladly. You will stay pay them when you have all the money so accept that. Pay them gladly, monitor your mind. Attitude is everything. Develop a rich attitude! Mindset rules!

Being upset about you bills, debt, lack of money or poverty won’t help you get out of it. Doing something about it will. What can you do? You first start with your mind and your attitude. You decide that instead of being poor you are rich. That you have plenty. Life is good. There is plenty to go around and you have your share of it.

Focus on this. Imagine yourself already with all the money you need. Living the good life. Bills taken care of. Leisure time and pleasure accounted for. Doing what you want and when. THIS is what you can focus on. Visualize it and affirm it. Live it now in your mind!

Your Thoughts Determine Your Destiny

Why? Because when you do, AND if it makes you feel good to imagine living your dream, then you are sending a clear message to your subconscious mind that THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT MORE OF! Tell your brain what you want NOT what you don’t want.

The law is working you have just been applying it in the wrong way. If you don’t take charge of it you brain runs on default. It gives you whatever it learned to give you while growing up. It mirrors your mindset. It produces more and more of the same.  It gives you the crappy beliefs and programming you adopted and re-produces it.

THAT is WHY the statement – ‘doing the same thing over again but expecting a different result IS the definition of insanity.’ It is why the statement exists, ‘if you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got.’ In order to get something else you must do something else! It is up to you! You ARE responsible.

What You Think You Create

In order to steer the law of attraction, because truthfully that is all you can do, you must take charge. You can’t turn it on or off you can only direct it. In order to direct it to get what you prefer your attention has to be on what you prefer exclusively. You have to let go and ignore the rest. Energy flows where your attention goes.

Many people try it and think positive for a few minutes and then fall back into their old default ways. Either they think negative or neutral which amounts to thinking the same thing. In order to create the life you want you must be mostly positive and focused on what you want, most of your time. Stop defeatist thinking. Think winner!

You must think positive and feel positive most of all your time. So learning to make the law of attraction work for you is learning to be more positive more of your waking hours. Frequently, think positive and focus on what you want during your waking hours. Quality and quantity are the rule.

What You Feel You Attract

Focus on what you don’t yet have, the invisible good in your future, as if you already have it. Ignore the present conditions and circumstances. Why? Because your present circumstances are the results of your former or prior thinking. Literally, from your past.

You have been too focused on what you didn’t want, or you didn’t focus on anything at all. Which is why you got poor results you don’t like. If you don’t run your brain your brain runs you. It learned to do all sorts or crummy, useless things. It does it reliably. Habitually!

Now you have the opportunity to change it. It is very simple but not always easy. Actually, it will be whatever you believe it to be. If you believe it difficult well, then it most likely will be. It is always only up to you. Only you make it work! Your present thinking will become your future reality.

What You Imagine You Become

No one can do it for you. Only you can transform you mindset to develop a winning, champion, creator attitude. If you want the best in life it begins with the best thoughts and feelings inside you. From within to without. Then you create and attract that best of everything.

You brain assists you. You brain evolves by how you think. Think positive and increase and your brain finds ways and examples and opportunities to have more of that. Think negative and decrease and you brain will find all those reasons and examples too.

The bottom line is the law of attraction never stops working. You can only, and only YOU can, steer it in the direction you want to move in. It is up to you what you get back. If you decide to be a positive, ‘I can do anything’ person you will be. Your decision.

The Only Limitations There Are Exist In Your Thinking 

Be patient though, it won’t work overnight. Your brain will change too! It will evolve to be more positive. Your brain changes with you! You are either negative with a negative brain or you become positive and your brain becomes positive too. Then it gets easier to be positive. Whichever you choose, gets easier.

Everything takes some time. Trees grow from seeds. Your results grow from your  thoughts in the same fashion. You condition your mind to be healthy the same way you condition your body to be healthy; over time by repeated exercise. If you exercise your mind right you can have whatever you desire. It works this way!

The law of attraction has its own timeline, not yours. Those of you who tried it for awhile and then threw in the towel; you quit! That is all. You decided you had tried it and now you were finished trying because you didn’t get results as soon as you thought you should. You gave up and blamed the process. Pretty normal.

Anything Can Be Possible

You can’t force the seed to grow faster. You can’t force the cake to bake sooner. It takes whatever time it takes. You can accelerate it some by how much effort you devote to making it work. You can accelerate it some by getting out of your own way and not setting conditions on it. It responds well to the proper nourishment.

You need to do the work and let the outcome go. If you keep at it you will eventually get there, come what may. You just have to keep traveling in the direction of your desired dream, for as long as it takes to get there. IF it is worth it to you, ultimately you will.

If you absolutely have to have it, you will do whatever positive things you can do, that are necessary, to keep you working towards achieving your goal. You won’t quit if you must, absolutely must, have it. Napoleon Hill said, ‘whatever the mind can conceive and believe you can achieve.’

Take Charge Of Your Mind And Your Life

Notice, he didn’t say you will achieve it. He said you CAN because whether or not you will is completely up to YOU. Only you will make it happen. If you marshall your resources and keep going until you do achieve it. That is the reality of it. You can if you will.  Will you?

Learn how to do it. Invest your time, energy and even your money in yourself. Learn to make it work for you because it is already working. Go where you want to go. Be the person in charge of your mind, your feelings and your life. Decide and then follow through!

If you are truly wise and smart you will realize the law of attraction is you. It is your mindset and your will. It is your determination that sees you through to the conclusion. It is not some magical force outside you that changes circumstance.

Take 100% Responsibility For What You Create

YOU are the force. It is all within you. Either YOU make it happen or you do not. You either bring it about or quit and accept whatever is. Either way, you are the law of attraction. Remember always, it is up to you! Only you!” Rex Sikes

Just Because You Can’t See The Miracles Doesn’t Mean They Aren’t Happening

horizons 2-trinity-phil-koch

“Do you want to succeed in your career? Do you need more money?Want to lead a better life? Maybe, you are looking to fall in love? You tried the Law Of Attraction but it doesn’t seem to work. Right?

Has this happened to you? You read the Secret, saw The Secret but you just don’t seem to get the results promised. Hang in there it does work, but not as you probably think it does.

It isn’t magic. It doesn’t happen over night. It is a conditioning process, a lifestyle. It isn’t a light switch you flip and voila’. It is a process! It requires you learn it and use it to master it.

If You Always Say What You Have

You get results from regular consistent exercise. You get results from intentional thinking and deliberate creation when you are consistent and persistent. It absolutely works if you do.

If you have identified what you want to create and focused your thoughts and feelings on making it happen then it is happening. Believe it even if it doesn’t seem like anything is happening yet.

Circumstances around you may be dire, they may not be what you want. Do not give up. Do not succumb to doubt, worry or fear. Do not undo what is going on by what you think and say.

You Will Always Have What You Say

If you put your energy and focus onto the circumstances you don’t like or want, and think on those and talk about those THAT is what you will create more of! STOP! Don’t! That is what most people do.

That is how you undo the good you have coming your way. You must be consistent. You must be mostly positive, mostly feeling wonderful, mostly focused on the invisible MOST OF THE TIME!

Get it? Declare good things are coming. You are not, yet, able to see the goodness on its way. Seeds grow in darkness. The roots grow underground. There is no evidence anything is happening BUT it is!

What You Say Is What You Get

It is happening! Stay with it. Believe it. Trust. Have faith. Act as if that good you desire IS already yours. Be grateful, celebrate and keep showing up. Maintain a positive attitude. Affirm it! Say it!

You have no idea how or when the miracles will break through. If you maintain your attitude and keep moving forward the day will come. What you want now will be yours one day. Affirm it!

The day will come sooner the more you eagerly anticipate the new day coming. In spite of circumstances around you not confirming it. Goodness is coming your way if you planted and nourish the seeds.

What You Think And Believe Determines What You Find And See

Our brain looks for an outer match with what we have going on inside. If you don’t like the outer reality you need to make the inner nicer. We don’t see all there is but what your brain filters for you.

What we see is NOT the reality. It is OUR perception of reality. Our real reality comes from within. We make the circumstances. Keep your mind on what you want. Declare it! Believe it! Stay with it!

Keep your mind off what you don’t want. Believe in what you can’t yet see. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. It is happening! Accept that it IS happening.

Whatever Follows I Am or I Have Is Your Declaration

Only after the miracles manifest will you be able to look back and see how the dots connect. Hindsight is 20/20. Keep your attitude up and feel good about the new day coming. This is HOW it works!

You don’t need to know how it will happen. That isn’t up to you. You only need to know what you want. Describe it and define it and focus on it and exclude all else. Imagine it has already happened.

Be grateful. Celebrate and live in delight. Expect the best and know good is around the corner. Keep the faith. Maintain a positive attitude and enjoy all things. Know that life is good and it will be.

Only Declare What You Positively Want

It works this way. From within to without. It begins as an idea then it becomes the outer reality. You make it happen. You create it. You attract it. You do it. Thoughts become things. Keep at it! Keep at it!

What you think about you bring about. You can absolutely be, do and have anything you want when you apply the principles consistently. You must stick with it UNTIL you have it. Get it?

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS! You stick with it until you get it! You pay the price. It doesn’t come for free. You will have it if you really must have it. Your desire will make it so. Your desire should increase.

Positive Or Negative You Make It So

When you go to the store you pay the cashier before you take the item home. You plant the seed before you harvest. You MUST pay for it before you get it. The payment is your desire and faith.

You should increase your desire over time. The time it takes is for you to grow your desire to make it happen. Most people decrease desire, give up and try something else SO THEY NEVER KNOW!

This is why you want to keep your thoughts focused on what you want. Control your mind. Stay focused and do not give up. Let nothing distract and your day will arrive. Celebrate that day NOW!” Rex Sikes

Make your day an wonderful!

You Are Already Deluded! The Least You Could Do Is Have Good Taste About It.

horizons -ice-cave-phil-koch

Remember, Henry Ford. He said, ‘If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.’ What people forget is how powerful a statement this is. First, he puts it squarely on you.

Everything rides on your shoulders and most people definitely don’t want to be responsible for that much of anything. He says, if YOU. It is up to what YOU think.

Next he says, it doesn’t matter what you think. If YOU think you can do something or if YOU think you can’t do something YOU are right. Whether you are positive or negative the result is the same.

It doesn’t matter. Either way, YOU are right. It is up to YOU which results you get. It is not up to anyone else, nor circumstances, or events it is up to what YOU think. YOU!

The Law Of Attraction states, we are attracting always, or creating always, whether it is positive or negative. We can’t avoid or escape it, that is the law. Just as gravity never ceases, the Law Of Attraction never stops. All that can be done is to direct it. You choose. Do you think positive most of the time or negative most of the time?

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

The answer to that determines the kind of results YOU get. YOU are either a CAN DO person or an CAN’T Do person. Whichever you are YOU are right! Your beliefs make it so. If you believe change is difficult and hard and only a few can be successful, well YOU are right.

If you believe without pain, there is no gain, well again, YOU would be right. If you believe there is a lot holding you back then YOU would be right. Whatever you believe you are right! Remember that, repeat that. Whatever you believe, you are right. That is what is so.

Whatever you believe, YOU are right. Your Reticular Activating System (RAS) I keep writing about will look for the match, examples in your experience, of what you believe and find the proof for you.

So you will condemn yourself to failing again and again because, darn it, YOU (and I, people in general) just hate to be proven wrong. So YOU will prove yourself a CAN’T Do person! That is a real delusion. Don’t you find that truly sad? I certainly do.

YOU have a choice and YOU choose to feel less than glorious. WOW. You could choose to feel glorious. Here, is where good taste comes in. If YOU believe you can do it, then you are right. If YOU believe, if anyone can do it you can, then you would be correct.

If YOU believe you have everything within you necessary to change or do what you want, right again. If YOU believe change can be easy, swift and enjoyable then it will be.

If You Dream It You Can Do It

Whatever you believe YOU will be right. Again, your RAS will look for examples in your experience to prove you correct. It will prove you a positive CAN DO person. The result is the same.

Whether you think YOU can or YOU think you can’t YOU are right! The difference is one feels better than the other! Again, good taste should prevail. Chose to be a CAN DO person. I would.

A CAN DO, powerful, positive, confident, happy person gets more done and gets better results just by attitude alone. If there is a problem the CAN DO person handles it well. While being positive doesn’t guarantee success alone, it feels better and IS more effective.

A negative attitude most certainly guarantees it will be tougher, rougher and success far less likely, if at all. Good taste, should prevail. Good taste should win here. SO what do YOU choose?

How do you get to the point that you believe what you want? How do you become a positive CAN DO person? Is it hard? Yes, if you believe it will be. No, if you don’t believe it will be hard. IT will be whatever it is.

You chose how you want to respond to it. It may seem difficult at first because you have never really chosen this way before. If that is the case, don’t you think it is about time you have actual choice?

Belief Creates The Actual Fact

Whatever you want to do with ease you must first do with diligence. In time, everything you repetitively do becomes easier. That is why in weightlifting people add weight or repetitions or both to keep challenging the muscles so they grow.

You will practice thinking new thoughts. You will make them your mantras, your affirmations. Affirmations work, if you didn’t know that. People affirm all the time. I CAN or I CAN’T are affirmations. Whatever you affirm YOU ARE RIGHT.

NOW, you CHOOSE you affirmations deliberately! Use good taste! Pick powerful, meaningful, easy to remember and speak, ones. Pick ones that when you think about what it means you feel good, EVEN, if you don’t feel you can be that way, yet. Pick inspiring ones. Make them count.

I will provide a few short, easy example but you really want to create your own, or make them your own. Write them out. Put them up on the mirror. Say them, shout them, frequently through the day. Think them, soon you will be them. You’ll condition your mind!

‘I am a good person! I am great. I can learn to do anything I set my mind to. I am talented. I am loving. I am confident. I am powerful. I am good with money. I am great at meeting new people. I am magnificent. I have everything I need and more keeps coming to me.

I am grateful for all I have. I have a loving partner.’ These are a whole lot better than, ‘I suck at things. I can’t remember names. I am fat. What a loser I am. I have poor judgement. I am broke’. Remember, good taste should prevail. Get your RAS on YOUR side for goodness sake.

Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

How do you come to believe the glorious, positive affirmations? Through dedicated, constant repetition and exposure. It’s the same way you developed the beliefs you don’t want. The difference is when you began believing what you now don’t wish to any longer, the limiting beliefs, you were unaware of the process.

You co-opted them from others at mostly a very young age. In growing up, you adopted the beliefs of parents and others through exposure and experience. Most, if not all of them you did not choose. Some conclusions you came to, mostly confirming what you already adopted. As you grew reinforced them by thinking them over and over.

After all beliefs are really only thoughts you habitually think. Your RAS demonstrated to you how they were true by finding the matches in experience for you to prove you right. It was a process. We all grow up this way, for the most part, and are unaware of the conditioning while it happens.

NOW, years later, YOU have a choice! That is excellent news! YOU can determine what you want to think, instead of thinking repeatedly the thoughts you got from others. YOU can be the master of your own brain instead of other people.

You CAN take control. You don’t have to live as a victim with other’s people’s limitations limiting you. You can be free. NOW you can decide what to think! You have an incredible opportunity to make the changes you want.

Those Who Don’t Believe In Magic Never Find It

Declare it! Assert it! Command it! Affirm it! Over and over again the new thought you want to think. Shout it, sing it, dance it with enthusiasm. This is how the military conditions minds within 6 short weeks.

Emotional repetition of thoughts and values and practices and procedures conditions the troops mind and body. Condition your mind to think what you want to think! Take control back from those other people.

Determine to be a more positive CAN DO person. Maintain a positive mental attitude. See yourself, imagine yourself, visualize yourself, already as the person you want to be. See yourself doing what you already want to be doing and already having what you want to have. Hey, it is YOUR gray matter make it work for you.

It should be your servant, you should not be its servant. You can eliminate worry, anxiety, fear, depression, anger and live with love, peace, passion and purpose. You can begin to be more confident and learn to do the things you want.

If you want it enough you will work to get it. The work you do is not to work harder on the outside but to work on yourself within. Learn to have and maintain a positive mental attitude. Learn that if you think you can, YOU ARE RIGHT!” Rex Sikes

Is A Wonderful Manifestation Miracle In Store For You?

horizons moments-of-discovery-phil-koch

“Is something good going to happen for you? Do you feel it? Do you feel lucky? What is around the corner for you that you can’t see yet? Will it be fame or fortune? Will it be large or small? Will you be pleased or not so pleased? What do you expect to happen soon?

Well, what do you expect? Think on that a moment. What do you expect? What do you expect? It is known our expectations shape what we find. They literally put a frame around it. For example, if you expect to find smiles you are more apt to during the day.

If you expect to find frowns you are more apt to as well. If you expect to find money or be lucky you are more likely to than if you decide you won’t. What you think,see and say to yourself is what you get. Your declarations, your expectations matter.

What You See Is What You Get

What you believe will happen is more likely to happen. That is the job of the Reticular Activating System (RAS) to find the match in the outer world with what you believe and expect within. Your thoughts really do determine much of reality. Maybe all of it. Yes, all of it!

How many times have you had your worst fears confirmed? Sometimes, it wasn’t as bad as you expected but it still came about. Sometimes, what you hoped for wasn’t as good as you hoped but it still came about. Our thoughts shape our reality. They really do.

Set your mindset for the best. Develop an unshakeable positive mental attitude. Keep your mind on what you want and the good you want to have most of the time each day. Keep your mind off what you don’t want, off bad news and distractions. Limit negativity.

What You Say Is What You Get

Too often we think we are positive thinkers because we spend a couple minutes each day affirming some things. Most of the day is distracted, filled with petty annoyances, bad news from FB, TV, or media of some form. We listen to gossip or complain.

We aren’t nearly as positive as we think we are. When you are predominantly positive, when you think the finest thoughts and feel your best, when you are optimistic and enthused, you literally do radiate or vibrate at a higher frequency. People can tell. It’s true!

When you are delighted from within you are more apt to create, attract and manifest wonderful, delightful, serendipitous moments more often. You are attuned for it! It can be.  You make it happen. You shine bright, vibrate at high frequency and resonate with good!

Affirm It And Confirm It

It doesn’t matter whether you believe it comes from within you or the universe responds to your requests. You just need to be feeling wonderful and open to the possibility that you will get what you want. Open up to the possibility that magic is in store for you.

It most likely won’t happen unless you take action and begin the creative process. You initiate with your thinking and the rest reacts to you. You put it out and it comes back. Expect a miracle and you are more likely to find one. Live in enjoyment and delight all your days. Plant the seed reap the harvest. It works this way!

Celebrate and appreciate what you already have and you are bound to get more and get better. Celebrate the love and friendship in your life. Celebrate your health and vitality. Celebrate your career success. Celebrate your wealthy finances and abundance in all areas. Live like happy royalty within! Imagine It! Declare it! Affirm it!

See it, say it! Assert and affirm it. Then confirm it! Focus on it. Attend to it. Energy flows where your attention goes. Become it! You don’t get what you want you get what you are! If you are happy you get more in return! If you are rich you get more back! Live with gusto! Live, love, laugh, learn, prosper and celebrate. Enjoy all good things!” Rex Sikes

Are You Finding Opportunity Where You Look?

horizons the-first-gift-phil-koch

“There is so much around us that we miss because we do not see. We look but not well. It is no different than when you put your keys down and then can’t find them, even when you are looking straight at them. We miss so much.

Would you like to notice more of the good there is? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to take advantage of this? Why keep missing out if you could change it all for the better? Don’t you think the time is now to wake up to the opportunity that abounds.

I think it is all about opportunity. It is our opportunity to learn, to evolve, to do well and succeed. It’s about opportunity to be happy. It is about our potential to be, do and have anything we want in life and to live wonderfully. It is about maximizing each moment.

It is about the opportunity we find inside every challenge or obstacle we face and what we do with it. Within every bad day is so much good. If we only focused on the good instead of the difficulty we’d find it. We miss it because our focus is occupied with problems.

Attitude Is That Little Thing That Makes A Big Difference

It is about looking around and recognizing what is good and new to us that constitutes an opportunity for discovery and celebration. When we celebrate anything and everything more becomes available to delight in. Whole new worlds open up for us.

Consider this: we have the ability to be happy regardless of what is going on and regardless of whether we believe that or not. We have the ability to celebrate everything whether we ever do or not. Some of us will, sadly, many of us won’t. Because we just don’t choose to.

We have so much more going for us than we could ever, even begin to realize, appreciate or utilize. It is about the opportunity we have to explore this and realize a little be more, appreciate a little bit more and utilize a little bit more. It is always right there.

Our attitude determines how much or how little opportunity we find in the world. During bad economic times millionaires are made. During good times millionaires are made. It is not the times that matter but that those people find opportunity in both bad and good.

Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude

Regardless of what is going on there is opportunity all around each of us. Whether or not we recognize the opportunities is the issue. You can’t, literally can not.  Nor will you, you won’t, if you are negative and your view is limited. Negativity closes you down!

You need to be positive, open and expansive. Your neurology has to be primed to find opportunity and it will. When you expect the best you are better equipped to find the best. Positivity opens you up!

If you always say what you have you will always have what you say. It is important then you only speak to bless, heal and prosper. You create whatever you declare whether or not you understand this. It is an ongoing, never ending process. You can’t use it intentionally, if you aren’t aware of it. Awareness opens us up to more opportunity.

I finished writing this, took a break, picked up a book and began reading. Within the first 4 paragraphs, author, Joseph Murphy stated, ‘If you fail to recognize and utilize the wisdom and power within in you, it is just the same as if it were not there.’ Could the message be made much clearer?

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

Look within. Discover what is inside you. Accept it. Enjoy it and celebrate it. After all it is you, so it is divine. Release it. Use it. Get the good you desire. Bless, heal and prosper yourself and others. Live fully and happily with those around you.

Make your life what you want it to be. As above so below. From within to without. The time is now. Seize it. This could be your opportunity to make some wonderful changes. Will you take it? The choice is yours. What will you do with it? ” Rex Sikes

Have a blessed day!

Things Suck! Life Sucks! What You Can Do About It!

horizons the-end-of-days-phil-koch

“My career sucks! My relationship sucks! Life suck! Why bother with career, relationship and life goals? Why dream and want to make things better? What is the point?  It seems like it will always be this way. These are some questions I am asked.  Others include:

I’ve heard manifesting is easy, is it? I have heard the process of deliberate creation is difficult? Well? It’s can’t be both can it? What if I suck at it? Life sucks! What to do about it? Is working with the Law Of Attraction tough?

Yes, sometimes it may seem like it. What is going on? Why bother? What is the payoff? I might struggle and not end up getting my goals, then what was it all for? I am not sure it is worth my time. Have you heard or thought things like this? Many people do, I have. It’s okay if you do.

People Think Life Is A Certain Set Of Circumstances

Intentional, deliberate creation and the Law Of Attraction are simple, and easy. Truly! Yes, it can take some time to see results and it typically does. It takes time for plants to grow so patience is required.  Still, things can happen faster or slower depending on your attitude and approach. Let it go.  You can’t suck at it

Whether you get what you want precisely, the ultimate pay off is huge. The benefit beyond your desire and your belief. Some people are too narrowly focused and miss what else is available to them. It requires a blend of concentration and an open mind. Flexibility is desirable.

Dedication and commitment are required. Dabblers get dabbler results. When you dive in and immerse yourself you tend to get quicker results. Things change for the better all over. Still, you swim the length of the pool bit by bit. You are rarely beamed up anywhere. That is just the way nature unfolds. We work with nature!

Some things do seem instantaneous. Transformation can occur immediately. Aha’s can make everything miraculous in a moment. Still, everything is what it is. The best attitude is absolutely committed, and persistent. Yet you have fun and enjoy the process regardless of the speed. Speed isn’t the greatest benefit anyway.

Life Is Actually A Certain Set Of Attitudes

Take it lightly. After all you can’t push a rope. You can’t force things. When things are easy. you may coast a bit, while remaining dedicated. When the going gets rough,  hang in there, and remember that’s when ‘the tough get going’. Self discipline and persistence are required. A big benefit is you learn flexibility by going through it.

Working with creation and attraction isn’t about suddenly finding oneself in utopia. Indeed, there can be obstacles. Usually there are, perhaps numerous, you just have to accept that. Skiing down a hill you may frequently encounter some pretty big bumps, dips and jumps; that is what makes it fascinating and enjoyable.

Becoming skilled and hanging in there no matter what means you don’t quit or give up when you encounter obstacles.  You create more of what you want as necessary. Continue undaunted. You learn from whatever is going on to become more resilient. For most of us, this would be a really big benefit to learn. A major plus!

Life IS what it is. The biggest and most valuable lesson may be to learn how to go with the flow while you direct the current. Those may seem at odds but they aren’t. You get to discover how they work together. Once you  embark on the journey it is an amazing adventure. It is a blend of many different things! Allow it! Enjoy!

There Is A Time To Plant And A Time To Harvest

There are so many delights. There are times when it is challenging. So why bother? Why put yourself through it? I believe for the many reason I have already cited. You become deliberate and flexible. You create wonderful things, learn patience and dedication. You learn to maximize and utilize your resources but there is something greater.

The greatest benefit is discovering WHO you are. You find out what you are made of and capable of. As you peel an onion the layers come off. When you are challenged you uncover  your true self. Challenges are an opportunity to learn who you are and ‘what you got’ each moment. You discover new talents and abilities. AND it’s learning how to go with the flow!

There can be nothing better than becoming one with yourself. You never arrive but you get closer to home. It is exciting. It is relaxing to come into your own power. It is beyond words. In order to be at one with yourself, to embrace the true you, you must go through the process. Whatever that process is for you. Trust it.

At times you may be exhilarated, at other times bored. You might be challenged to your limits and other times coast or blast along at amazing speed. It IS what it is. You were born to discover who you are, and what life can be like!  It IS what you were born to do! You were born to enjoy the good life.

Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude

You are here to maximize your potential. You were born to evolve and to realize your true nature. You are here to wake up. You are here to become aware of your real self.You are here to learn YOU create your reality. You have already been creating it all along. It is time to wake up to your power and your responsibility.

You are an amazing creator and attractor. If the results you previously have gotten aren’t to your liking you can change that. Learn from it and change it! You are here to delight! You are here to enjoy the fullness of life and all the good things that abound. You have been born to celebrate and to create all sorts of wonderful moments!  Seek yourself!” Rex Sikes

Enjoy your day!

This Is The Missing Piece To Getting Everything You Want!

horizons the-wild-blue-yonder-phil-koch

“Do you want your career to take off? Do you need more money? Would you want a better connection with your loved ones? Perhaps, you’d like to travel or afford nice things. Whatever it is you want to have you can have it all once you learn this very important principle or secret. It has been hidden in plain site forever.

I am going to share it with you. I believe this is one of the most important messages you need to get. You need to know, understand and appreciate this about being a deliberate, intentional creator. This ‘secret’ is what  makes the Law Of Attraction work and I am giving it to you right now, right here. Celebrate and Share it!

It is absolutely critical. It is so simple. Even then, people miss it. Please don’t. Pay attention and keep an open mind. Once you recognize the truth in what I am saying, you may have an ‘aha’ mind opening experience. I hope you do. Enjoy learning how to make your important, good dreams and desires come true!

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe you can achieve, said Napoleon Hill. It has been said in different ways, by  different thought leaders from the dawn of recorded history. Everything begins with thought. Thought originates everything humans produce.

What You See Is What You Get

Thought precedes form. Thought precedes action. We know this is the case. It is not even in dispute. Everything that humans have made with their hands began first as an idea inside their minds. Said differently, In order to make it with your hands it must first exist in your mind.

Numerous people have stated this next concept in many ways. I’ll quote a scripture. ‘Ask, believing you have already received, and you shall receive.’ The key to getting is to believe you already have it. Imagine you already have the good you desire in your life

People have asked, how can they believe it when they look at their circumstances and those run counter to their thought? They find it difficult to believe since they don’t see it in the world. They are troubled by this scripture or concept. They are riddled with doubt.

How can I have faith first? How can I believe something is there, already, when it isn’t? Does this bother you? It certainly bothered me. I’m supposed to believe this invisible desire already exists and I am supposed to feel what it feels like to already have it. How? How exactly am I supposed to do that?

What You Say Is What You Get

We don’t understand that we are already doing it. It is there but we miss it. You create it prior to it existing in the real world. Remember, thought precedes action. Thought precedes form. Everything that exists first exists as an idea. Are you beginning to understand yet? It’s okay, keep reading.

When an architect imagines a bridge or a building they blueprint it. They plan it in every detail in their mind and put it down on paper. They create it inside their head, they visualize it or envision it. The actual building takes much longer to physically create. It first, only, exists in thought and plans.

Get it now? What you want DOES already exist. You say where? Where is it? Where does it exist? I don’t see it? OH, but you do! Yes, you do! YOU do ALREADY have it. You have it within you! It is in your thoughts you have already created it. BUT, BUT… BUT!!! IT EXISTS!!!!

It exists. As within so without! It hasn’t yet translated into physical reality but it IS already there in your mind. It exists FIRST there. What are the steps to getting your dominant chief purpose or your goals. Know what you want. Imagine it. Be specific. Be detailed and vidid. Write it down.

What You Feel Is What You Get

What does the architect do? Imagines it and writes it down or draws it out.  Conceive it, write it down, plan it. You already have what you want inside you. NOW believe you can make it happen. Think about it day and night. Make it more real and vivid. Really, truly want it!

Intensify the desire for it to transmute into form. It is already in your head ready for you to make with your hands. You repeat thinking about it, affirm it and give it over to your subconscious by repeated suggestion. Hillary climbed Everest. Edison invented the light bulb. The Wright Brothers flew. Everything starts on the inside!

Constantly think about it. See it, feel it, affirm it! Your subconscious takes over to help plan it. What you believe on the inside is what your subconscious mind works to match on the outside. That’s the job of the Reticular Activating System. Find opportunities, people and circumstances that match what you already believe inside.

Keep the faith in that inner vision. It WILL become reality. You create just as the architect does. You first think it, then believe you will have it and you can achieve it. You decide to make it real in the outer world. Stop looking at the present circumstances and complaining it isn’t there. Start making it happen!

Act As If You Already Have It – Because You Already Do

It doesn’t exist in the outer world, yet, BUT it can and it will if you stick with it. You have to keep at it. YOU DO already have it. You do already possess all the good you desire. It is already yours inside your thought world. This is great news! You already own what you want.

This is CRITICAL to understand! It will make your creating, manifesting and attracting so much easier and faster. Assume it, affirm it, declare it. Speak to yourself as if you already have it. See yourself already in possession of it. Feel these feelings. Expect it. Know it will happen. Believe it.

It is yours! Believe it. THIS is WHAT you WILL make happen! Command yourself to do it. If you were to build a chair. You would get the idea, imagine the chair. Plan it or draw it out. Get the materials and put them together. NO BIG DEAL! That IS what you would do. You wouldn’t fuss over whether you could or not.

The first step in creating what you want was accomplished when you thought it. You put the intention out there. It now exists. It exists as a thought seed. Just as an acorn seed needs nutrition and time to grow into a mighty oak so does your thought seed. Expect it to grow!

Once You Believe Your Mind Opens To What Is There

You do that much for the acorn seed you plant. Do as much for your thought seed. Plant it and expect it to grow. Give it nutrition and it will. You don’t doubt the flower seeds you plant, do you? You expect flowers to grow and bloom. Do as much with your thought seeds.

‘Ask, believing you have already received, and you shall receive.’ Your desire already exists. No question about that. It has a literal thought form. It is an idea! Thoughts are things. The results you get are from translating your thoughts into reality.

Once you make your thought a burning desire and think about it, obsess about it, you begin to get other ideas and plans how to make it happen. You attract like thoughts, like energy, like people, like events. Your brain is on the look out for these.

When you buy a brand new car you start seeing the same make and model everywhere you hadn’t noticed previously. Your brain now alerts you to them because YOU OWN IT! You notice what you hadn’t before. So keep the faith! You will make it happen. This is how it works. Conceive it, believe it and achieve it! Happy Creating!!” Rex Sikes

How To Have Everything You Want: What You Need To Stop And Start Doing

horizons sweet-surrender-phil-koch

“There are people who want to read and learn and get the right information to make a change. The read and study and do seminars and phone calls, but when it comes down to it they are info junkies. I know this because I am one of them.

I never thought I was but I am. I am addicted to info. I want the next book that will tell me what I need to know and do to evolve myself and my skills further. I want to read. So I buy lots of books. Videos and Cds too. I have so many! I’ve watched The Secret a dozen times.

I buy more books than I can ever read. So many are still waiting from decades ago while I buy the next new one I think I need. I used to buy record albums based on the cover art. YOU should never do that if you actually like music. I have spent a fortune on self help books.

I see it I want it. BUT I don’t actually want to do it. I want to learn about it not implement it. I want to read about healthy eating more than eating healthy. OH, I know I should eat a certain way because I have read everything about nutrition, and health, and diet, and… but geez those cupcakes look good.

Okay, I’ll eat a bag full of organic, gluten free, cookies or chips in a single sitting with a natural soda or juice. I want the body to be sculpted like Schwarzenegger’s only I don’t want to do what is required. I know I could visualize 68 seconds each day, or five minutes on my goals but I don’t. I don’t even really do affirmations.

If You Want Your Life To Change You Have To Change Things In Your Life

Most of my day is spent dealing with difficulties at work or at home. It seems there is an endless parade of distractions and issues that keep me occupied until I fall into bed at night exhausted. They call this the good life, right. It is trouble just making ends meet. Bills, bills, bills, you know. Death and taxes.

I could write in my manifestation journal everyday but instead I read about writing in the journal and about all the people who have made things happen. Then I sit and wonder why things aren’t happening quick enough. This LOA stuff just doesn’t work. I blame everyone and everyone else around me for my difficulties.

Tough making thing happen. I always believed that. Mom was right when she said ‘not everyone can be rich.’ I always thought some people were lucky but I never was. WOW, can you believe some of these silver spooners who have everything. Lucky bastards for sure!

I don’t know why things suck so much and nothing really ever works out for me how I hoped. It really bothers me to have lived this long and got so little… there is a webinar I plan to do this week that is supposed to get me all my dreams and show me how to turn on my magic attractor button. Can’t wait.

What You Say Is What You Get

Does this sound familiar? Do you do any of this? If so stop it! Stop it right now and take control of your thinking and your life. You dreams could be right around the corner. They might be here right now but you push them off by not doing what you can be doing now to make them happen.

Now is the time! Right here is the place! You begin from wherever you are with whatever you do or do not have. You no longer wait, you stop procrastinating, you stop seeking another ‘key to the future’ and you work right now with what you have.

See your goals as already having happened. Affirm the same. Describe them as completed and you are living your dreams. Describe the feelings! Feel the wonderful feelings as you do. Yes, write it in a journal a bit each day. Celebrate and be grateful.

What You See Is What You Get

Visualize for a few moments each day. Affirm while driving! USE your day to DO THE WORK and you will THINK and Grow Richer! Or spend the rest of your life complaining and seeking. The choice is yours. Monitor your feelings, control your thoughts and self-talk. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper. Spend your time creating!

Decide, right now, in this instant, how you want the rest of your life to be! To do nothing is a decision. Stop tolerating and start living your dreams. You can be, do and have anything you want BUT there are some things YOU MUST ACTUALLY DO. If you want your life to change YOU MUST change some things in your life! Don’t wait! Go for it Now! ” Rex Sikes
