How To Handle Unexpected Bad Events

What to do when unexpected bad happens? Something comes along, out of the blue, that is less than glorious. How can you best handle it so  you don’t create more problems? How can you begin to create more opportunity and manifest good things for your future?

It is all depends on what you think and what you say to yourself and to others. Keep in mind the notion I frequently promote here. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper. Don’t repeatedly tell, and relive, the ‘negative’ story. Stop doing that! Instead, tell one that supports you.

Say, ‘well I didn’t expect that. Some people might say they had a problem. I have a new opportunity presenting itself to examine and utilize my resources. I don’t know what to do about it, yet, but I know everything always works out well for me in the end.’

Train Yourself To Find The Blessing In Everything – Feel Blessed

‘I also know that in adversity is the seed of opportunity. This situation will help me get clear on what I want. Getting really clear about what I want will help me make it happen.’ Don’t judge or label it bad.  Simply say, it’s something you didn’t expect.

Don’t get negative. Don’t speak in less than glorious terms. Do not ignore it. Don’t lie about it. Don’t say it is ‘all fabulous’ if you don’t feel that. That only creates internal conflict. Don’t create a conflict. Simply, reframe how you think and speak about all of it. Get it?

Simply say, ‘I have a situation and I don’t know how it’s gonna work out. Ultimately, it’s gonna work out for the best. Things always work out for the best. I’m gonna celebrate the learning and all the opportunities that are now before me. This is an opportunity.’

Count Your Blessings Not Your Problems – Think Differently

‘I have an opportunity to think, feel, be, do and act differently than I had planned. All of it is an opportunity. All of it will work out. I just don’t know how, yet, so I’m going to get clear on what I do want. I’m going to work on what I can make happen.’

Things never work out the way you think they will. There’s always twists and turns and surprises, so you might as well get used to that. Accept it. Life is an adventure. You can plan but, almost always, your plans will change. Life is ups and downs. Life provides contrast.

Adversity helps you. Perhaps, you really do need what is occurring in order to get clear and focus intently on what you want. Perhaps, you  have to intensify your pursuit. Use it to your advantage. It is a good and positive thing that happened. Get clear on your goals.

Be Grateful For Small Things Big Things And All In Between

You can never know how things will turn out. Adventures are filled with good times and challenges. All of them are a blessings. Sadly, you and the rest of us, have been previously conditioned to accept some and reject others. You have beliefs about what is good and bad.

Until now, you may not have believed that these events can be blessings. Most of us were conditioned to dislike the unexpected. We whine, blame, excuse. and accuse. So we lose out and we suffer. We suffer because of our chronic, old conditioned mindset.

Now you have opportunity to go beyond your beliefs and evolve as a person. You can go to a higher level. When everything is a blessing your life becomes incredible! You didn’t get the outcome you expected. So what? Celebrate. It is a gift and a blessing! Get it?

Perception Is Everything – Believing Is Seeing – It Is All Up To You

Still, you may not yet believe this. These kind of experiences, these lessons, these opportunities, will happen over and over again until you learn that this IS how it works. Everything is a blessing. Give yourself room to accept this. Until you do, expect the unexpected.

Begin to believe that everything happens for your good even though you may not be able to see what that is right now. Don’t let defeat define you. Don’t succumb to negativity because ‘crap’ hits the fan. What anything IS is whatever you DECIDE it is. It’s all up to you.

Things happen to you. It can all be good. You just haven’t believed that before. Give yourself permission to. Accept and allow it and your life can transform. Find the silver linings. Consider everything an opportunity, a lesson and a blessing. Give yourself permission to shine! Feel grateful. Express your gratitude. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Do This To Start Succeeding More Quickly

“There is another reason why you might not succeed as quickly and as easily as you could. Most of us, at one time or another, have been guilty of this. In order to move forward most swiftly, you have to be willing to do somethings that seem counterintuitive, at times.

Stop trying so hard! Stop trying at all. This doesn’t mean you abandon your goals or give up.  You stay true to your ‘definite chief purpose’. You continue to be passionate about it. It stays a ‘white hot burning desire’ but you stop over thinking. You stop struggling.

You let go. Start trusting. Start having peace. Become certain about making it happen. After all, if it is going to happen at all, you are going to be the one making it happen. Trust yourself. Believe. Have faith. Trust your resourcefulness. Know in your heart you can do it.

Trust Is A Decision You Make – Allow Things To Happen – Trust

Expect the best. Let go of worry. Stop trying to figure it out!  Relax. Listen to the still small voice within. Follow your gut. This all comes about by taking charge of your thinking. The results you get and the inspired actions you take come from managing your mindset.

Be positive. Affirm. Stop speaking about your problems and worries. Begin speaking about making it happen. You don’t need to know the details but you do need to expect it will happen. That is faith. Be enthused. Be eager. Have some fun. Play, delight, enjoy the process.

Don’t furrow your brow. Smile more. Laugh more. Put an end to the struggle. Commit to ease. Do little things that move you ahead. Take some action. It need not be massive. Get into the gratitude habit. Enjoy the process. Be glad for the learning and the challenge. Count it all a blessing and you will move ahead more. Get out of your own way! Celebrate everything.”

ENJOY!

If You’re Like Most People You Say You Are But You Probably Aren’t

“Most people will make this claim, yet, most people are not what they claim. They say they are, but they aren’t. This is the reason they don’t change, nor do they get what they want. In order to have the life you want to have, certain things are necessary.

You must do this! What is it? You must have a true willingness to change. Yup, people claim they are willing. They say they want changes. They want it different. When it comes right down to it they really aren’t willing to do whatever it takes to make it so?

Many are mostly unwilling. What about you? If you want things in your life to change you ACTUALLY have to change things in your life! What would you give up? What would you trade in exchange? Would you go a year without Facebook? Would you give up television?

If You Are Not Willing To Change – Don’t Expect Your Life To

What are you willing to do, to sacrifice, if you had to, to get the life of your dreams? What will you do to make you big goals and dreams a reality? Most people won’t do much when it comes right down to it. They are comfortable as it is, even while they complain about it!

It boils down to habit. What habits do you have that keep you the same? Most people don’t change their habits because they think it too hard. They try, but give up. Some succeed. You actually can! To succeed you need to put some skin in the game. Are you willing?

What do you need to do in order to get what you want most? The number one thing most people need to start with is to change their thinking? People need to develop the mindset that they can and will do anything positive to bring about good results they desire.

You Have To Be Willing To Leave Your Comfort Zone

They need to take responsibility for everything in their life. Why? Because once you take responsibility for everything it puts you in charge. If you created a mess, or something you don’t like, you can create what you want, too. You are doing it. No one else is.

That mindset helps you make the changes necessary to develop new habits. If I said, you can have the lifestyle you want, but it will cost you X, many people would say, ‘wow that is too much!’ The cost could be a money investment or giving up golfing on weekends.

Not forever, but until you have what you want. What do you continue to allow that gets in your way? When will you stop it from being a distraction? How soon will you decide you are willing to change and do whatever necessary to stop losing and start winning?

Stop Complaining About Things You Aren’t Willing To Change

A willingness to change means you are willing and you actually take charge and change things. If you change nothing, you get nothing. Still, this is what most do. They continue doing the same things, hoping it will be different. That IS the definition of insanity. It is!

Develop a positive mindset. Napoleon Hill called it THINK and grow rich. It truly is mostly a mental game. When your thinking is right on, your actions will be too. It isn’t about working harder, yet that is what most people think it’s about. Work smarter not harder!

Until you are truly willing to change your life will mostly remain the same. You have to leave your comfort zone and stretch yourself in new and different ways to make headway. This means you must develop new thinking, feeling and doing habits. Are you ready?

You Will Never Change Anything You Are Willing To Tolerate

If so begin. Begin assuming responsibility for everything in your life. No joke. You created it all. That is the mindset. Now begin creating what you want. Fill your mind each day with positive thoughts. Read, listen to positive material. Repeat affirmations. Visualize. Have fun.

Make it a point to enjoy what you already have, whether you have little or lots. BE grateful. Express your appreciation. This is really, the secret. It is all an energy game! When you are vibrating right, exuding the right energy, you are in the zone. It is about energy!

You make things happen when you are positive. When you are delighting and enjoying all of life you are closest to making all your dreams come true. Live in appreciation. Be grateful. What you think about you become. What you focus on expands. Delight in it all and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!

Experts Reveal: The Determining Factor Between Being Rich Or Poor

“What do successful or rich people do that gives them the edge? Most people, who are not successful and rich, don’t do this? That’s why there’s a difference between who succeeds and who doesn’t. There is a difference between the wealthy and those who aren’t.

Yup, it is mindset or attitude. It is the expectation the successful, or rich person has, that those who aren’t, do not have. Rich people expect to succeed. That’s it! It is that simple! Successful people expect to continue to succeed.  The believe in themselves!

They have confidence in their talents and abilities. They believe they can always find or create a way to have what they want. They know they can make it happen. They trust their ingenuity and creativity. They feel it with every fiber of their being. They FEEL it first!

Focus On Being A Blessing And You Will Always Be Blessed

It is the feeling and the mindset, the expectation or certainty, that they will be successful, that makes the difference. They take 100% responsibility for creating their future. They determine what they want and decide to go for it. They know THEY make it happen.

They are open and receptive to insights coming from anywhere. They trust their gut or intuition. They are receptive to unexpected good happening for them, because they know it will. They know! No matter how difficult the road, they will get there. They believe!

You can too. The rule is, if you want it, you have to go get it. You have to go first. You create it and make it happen. Your mindset is more important than your actions because your right mindset directs your actions. Hence, you work smarter not harder. Get it? You do it.

There Is Always Something Good Coming Soon – Remember This

You adjust and continue. You keep the faith. Open yourself up to some unexpected good. Be willing to be blessed beyond belief. Allow yourself to ‘act as if’ you already have all you desire and express how good that feels. Express your gratitude and you will create more good. Do it! Delight in all. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!

Why Some People Win: The Smart Ones Do This!

Today’s post is a tale of two men. Similar in almost every way. The two men take their axes and go into the woods to engage in a wood chopping contest. From sunrise to sunset, they were to chop down as many forest trees as possible. The prize, fortune and fame.

Both men chopped and chopped steadily from sunrise until noon.  At noon they were neck and neck. Then one man stopped chopping. He took a break. The other man saw this and thought to himself:  ‘Certainly I will win. His lunch break gives me the advantage!’

A little while later the man resumed chopping. As the day progressed this man chopped more trees than his hungry, hard-working competitor. By mid-day he had taken a clear lead. By sunset, he had chopped twice as many trees as the man without the break.

To Become Successful – Learn How To Do More With Less

‘How on earth did you beat me?’ asked the hard working, exhausted, sweaty, chopper. ‘You took a lunch break. I chopped straight through. I never stopped chopping, yet, you beat me! How?’

The winning chopper replied, ‘Yes, I did take a break for lunch. During that time I sharpened my axe.’

That’s our tale for today. The question is, have you sharpened YOUR axe? The goal is not to work harder and exhaust yourself but to work smarter. Are you tools sharp? Have you invested in yourself? Can you produce 80% more with 20% less effort? Smart ones do, do you?

Maximize Your Efforts With Inspired Right Action –  Mindset First

Be sure to take time to prepare yourself. That is what the winning wood chopper did. He made sure his tools worked properly. You have to invest in yourself and prepare your mind, your feelings and actions for forward progress. Use visualization and affirmations.

Put your mind to work. Spend time reading, studying, positive, productive, inspiring material that can help move you closer to accomplishing your goals and purpose. YOU are worth the investment of your money, time and energy! Love yourself.

Love yourself enough to give yourself the best. ‘Act As If’ you already have accomplished the good you desire to bring to pass. Sharpen you mental skills, your attitude, your mindset to work for you and with you. Develop success habits you can rely on!

From Within To Without – As Above  So Below – Plant Right Seeds

Dedicate yourself to making your goals come true. Be thankful for the road you have been on. It has led you to this moment. It leads to where you want to end up. Have fun, travel well, delight in the journey. Be grateful for each step along the way. 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

There Is Nothing More Important You Can Do Than Learn To Control Your Thinking!

“The most important thing  you can do is learn how to control your thinking. Everything first begins with thought. Your actions and results originate from your thoughts and feelings. You can’t do anything more important than to learn to manage your thoughts.

From within to without. From inside your head to your hand is how creativity happens. It is how everything happens for us. Sadly, most people never take charge of their thinking so then never take charge of their lives. Napoleon Hill stated most people drift through life.

The secret to success is getting your mindset right. Develop an unshakable, unstoppable attitude that supports you in your positive endeavors. Remember this saying, ‘you get what you practice’. You get better at whatever you do through consistent right practice.

What Consumes Your Mind Controls Your Life – It’s Up To You

Yet, many never practice developing how they think. They remain victims of others, of events, of circumstances. They whine, blame and make excuses. Instead of taking responsibility for the life they have created they think it has happened to them. Lucky or not.

They hope and wish things were different, yet they spend their time in worry, fear and doubt. The hope it gets better but anticipate the worst. This is not a productive way to spend your time, is it? Another secret is to not be smaller than your problems but be to bigger.

Stop trying to avoid and eliminate problems. Instead evolve, work on yourself, make yourself larger than the issues. Become capable of finding solutions and resolving whatever comes your way. Whether you succeed in life or not is completely up to you. It really is!

I’m In Charge Of How I Think And Feel – I Choose To Be Happy

Take 100% responsibility for who you are, what you are doing, where you are in life and what you have. If you want it to be better, decide and determine to make it so. You absolutely can do this. You can begin to make an incredible difference for yourself. Get it?

Grow yourself up. Make yourself a champion. Put faith in you that you can and will do this. You see, it begins with your thoughts and whether you think you can or or you think you can’t. If you think you can’t, you absolutely must begin to learn how you can. Get it?

It isn’t that hard. It can be far easier than you might think it would be. However, nothing will change unless you take charge and make some changes. Practice positive thinking. Practice declaring and affirming who  you want to become and practice being that.

Every Thought We Think Is Creating Our Future – How Is Yours

Live it. Breathe it. Then, you will enjoy it. Your future is in your hands. Magical thinking means you put your faith and hope in outside forces. You hope and pray for things to change but do nothing to actually change. Realize, now YOU can change it all.

Begin today! Don’t wait. Start now. Right where you are. Decide to improve yourself. Decide to fill your mind with positive thoughts. Read inspired, positive books and articles. Affirm, declare, visualize. Listen to inspired audios. Keep a gratitude journal. Do it daily!

Otherwise nothing really changes. Manage you mind. Be the boss of your brain, not its servant. Be larger than your problems. In fact, you have no problems if you consider everything a learning opportunity and a blessing. Live in gratitude and your life improves. Practice thought management. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
