Don’t Expect Anything If You Don’t Do This

“In a recent post I paraphrased an important concept from author James Allen ‘As A Man Thinketh’ which was, our minds are like a garden. It can be wisely and intelligently cultivated, or it can be allowed to run wild. Either way, it will bring forth results.

If you plant corn you get corn. If you allow weeds to grow and choke the corn they will. If you plant corn you don’t get carrots. If you plant poison you get poison, not corn. If you plant positive seeds you get positive results. If you let negativity grow you get more negativity.

If you don’t plant specific seeds, if you do nothing but let it go, all on its own then other seeds, weeds, animals and birds, leaves and sticks, insects and others will get into your garden. It will possibly overgrow and do harm to your garden. Whatever is allowed to grow will grow!

If You Really Want To Do Something You Will Find A Way …

Negligence produces results albeit unintended ones. This is how many people live and run their brains and mind. They live with whatever shows up, whatever their conditioning is. They do little or nothing to change it or make it better. Oh yes,  they do complain.

If you want a beautiful garden, if you want to create your best life ever, you must make it happen. You must care for it. You must tend to it. Eliminate the weeds and debris and nurture and promote that which you want to grow. You can’t ignore it into better health.

Seeds produce more. Seeds produce bountiful harvests which result in more seeds. One apple seed may produce 100s or 1000s of apples which may produce millions of more seeds. Positivity produces much more positivity. Negativity produces more negativity!

If You Don’t You Will Find An Excuse – Whatever You Feed Grows

You have to determine which it is you want to grow. Determine the results you want and tend to your garden. Manage the thinking, promote the positive. Whatever you give preferential treatment will multiple. Whatever your predominant thoughts are produce results.

If you aren’t getting the results you want you have some garden management to take care of. You will need to eliminate, drop, let go of, release, weed out the negative and plant, nurture and tend to the positive seeds. Whatever you focus on expands. It works this way.

You can fight it or learn to work with it. If you want to create your best life ever there are things you can do. If you do nothing it is unlikely it will ever happen. If you are primarily negative and operate from excuses and blames, you probably just ought to forget it.

You Are Either Growing And Expanding Or Shrinking And Dying

If it is to be it will be up to how you think, feel and what you do OR don’t do. Get it? If you can’t do it alone get guidance. Get a mentor or coach who can help you. Heck, people get tour guides to help learn the way, so should you. The point is if you don’t take care of this it will grow as it is on its own. If you don’t like your circumstances or results then you need to make some changes. Get it? Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Do You Struggle With The Law Of Attraction

“We live from the inside out. We operate off of mental maps. We have filters that delete information coming in. We distort things. Have you ever thought you saw your friend in a crowd only to discover you were mistaken? Looked like your friend, didn’t it?

That is an example of distortion. We generalize and make rules we think should apply in every situation and for all people. Oh, sure, we sometimes acknowledge the occasional counter-example, ‘not every rich person is a jerk’, but we think most all are. Get it? We do this.

All inside our head. Automatically and routinely. We believe some great things and some silly, stupid negative things. We create our reality from unconscious, habitual processes; neural pathways laid down while growing up. It is all good, too. We benefit from these.

The Map Is Not The Territory – Eat The Food Not The Menu

We don’t have to re-invent the world. We have automatic ways of doing things. They are streamlined. The issue most of us have is we struggle with our own processes. We struggle with our own beliefs. We want to do certain things and yet we actually resist changing.

We do all this automatically to remain the same. Our brains job is to keep us alive and keep us consistent. The same way our thermostat works to adjust the temperature to maintain its setting. All of it is good, we just don’t always think so. Therein is the rub.

It is what we think it is. If we think it is difficult or hard it will be more so than if we think it easy. If we think it doesn’t work it most likely will not. If we think we can’t we probably never will. If we think the world is against us we will find reasons that prove it to us. Get it?

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes – Choose Wisely

It is what we think and say it is. It is all within the realm of natural laws and principles. It doesn’t mean if I think I am 9 feet tall I am or will be. I hope you understand this point, it is important. You create your reality and how you experience the world, from within.

If you have difficulty manifesting what you want you need to make some changes. How you presently live, your level of health, wealth and happiness require little or no effort. You are already doing it and maintaining it. Positively changing will take some effort.

Whether you think that is difficult or easy will determine how you move through it. If you think it will be difficult to learn to play the piano, or juggle, or swim, or drive a car, it will be. If you think it will be easy with no learning curve it would be unrealistic. Get it?

What You Focus On Expands – Thoughts Become Things

If, however, you think, ‘I can easily and effortlessly learn to do this and any challenges that come my way I can readily move through and enjoy the process’, you will be better off. If you think you never get what you want, or getting it will be tough, makes it so.

If you think the Law of Attraction doesn’t work or is difficult to make work, you would be correct for yourself. You’d be wrong according to the experience of countless others. You create your reality! Do you understand this? If you want it easier, you must think it so.

You can learn to do this if you don’t. We all must go through it. Accept it and decide to transform yourself. Stop re-enforcing what hasn’t worked, what holds you back, and keeps you negative. Decide to shift to the positive and emphasize this. Put your focus to work.

You Are Always Creating Everything Whether You Want It Or Not

Energy flows where your attention goes. What you emphasize expands. You get more of whatever you think about. Practice thinking positive and feeling good. If you need more help that is why I am here. Ask for it. I have some great programs for you to benefit from. Meanwhile, practice being positive. Practice feeling wonderful. Practice being grateful and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Do You Want To Know A Secret!

“I want to share a secret. It is an open secret, meaning everyone should know it, but few actually do. By knowing, remembering and applying this secret your life can radically transform. It is unfortunate more people don’t realize this and live incredible lives.

It is simple. You may think, what is so profound about this, but it is truly profound. It determines how you go through your days and live your life. It is especially useful if you tend toward worry. So take it to heart, remember this each moment, and allow yourself to be still.

Your positive, or your best hope, is as likely to occur as your worst fear. Repeat this now as I re-write it for you. ‘My positive, or my best hope is as likely to occur as my worst fear. I have no reason to give more weight or importance to my negative expectations.’ Repeat it!

Too Many Don’t Live Their Dreams – Because They Live Their Fears

Do you get this? Once you understand this you can become free. Many people think, because they think or fear something, it is bound to come to pass. They fear and expect the worst. In all likelihood, good is bound to happen just as much as not so good. It’s perception.

Your own habitual mindset determines how you view the world; your past, present and future. Your mindset determines whether you are bound for good, health, love, wealth, success or not. Your thoughts make your reality. Change your thoughts change reality.

Change your thinking habits and you change the results you get. Stop fearing the worst. What you continually think about, you bring about. The more you think positive, and feel positive, the more you act positively and make positive results happen. It’s all in your mind.

Mindset Is Everything – Choose Your Mindset – It Is Up To You

From within, you create everything. You react based on your predispositions. Change these, and react differently. Instead of reacting from a negative mindset automatically, you can react from a positive mindset automatically. Why choose worst? Choose best!

Get it? Nothing changes until you change. Stop doing something unhealthy and start doing something healthy. Repeat it correctly for long enough, consistently, until it becomes the new habit. This is how you transform your mind, your circumstances, and your life.

Stop complaining and blaming and excusing and start feeling and expressing gratitude. Take responsibility for yourself and for making your own changes. Appreciate your past. It got you to here, no matter how you judge it. Appreciate your present. Enjoy the now.

One Day Or Day One – You Decide – If It Comes True It’s Up To You

What you do right now will determine what your future will be like. Appreciate now. Find the good, the blessing, in every person and circumstance. Live differently from how you have lived. Say thank you each moment. Your life will radically, positively and powerfully change. It all happens as you continually celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Universe Works In Mysterious Ways

“I’m driving with my daughter one evening when all the dash warning lights go off. I don’t lose power or lights but the alerts went off. Later, they went off again. I called my mechanic to discover the garage had permanently shut down between visits, without notice.

I loved my mechanics. They were wonderful. However, the owners shut everything down without notifying them in advance either. Okay, I seem to have a need and I am without a trusted garage. No problems with the car but the warning lights go off a few times.

Every couple of days. Might be a short. Doesn’t seem to effect anything but I don’t want to press my luck. Then, I loaned the car to my daughter who called to say it was driving funny. It was a Saturday night. She brought the car home and it had no brakes. WOW!

All Good Things Come To The Person Who Believes – Have Faith

I really needed a mechanic. I called a friend who said he had a friend who was a mechanic and who would take good care of me. Meanwhile, I researched what might be wrong with the brakes. I called a few shops nearby telling them what I discovered.

They couldn’t quote it but said, most likely it was expensive. Okay, I prepared to shell out if I must, but obviously, who wants to and I didn’t. I take the car to my friends garage this morning. I meet the gentleman who says ‘let me take a look’. He does. He tells me to wait.

He says it might take 20 minutes or longer, depending. 20 minutes later it is fixed. Great! I ask what I owe. He says, ‘You don’t owe me anything. Glad I could help.’ WOW. Really great! I found my new mechanic, BUT I wouldn’t have, had I not had the problem. Get it?

Another Name For Faith Is Trust – Trust It Will All Work Out

I could have looked and searched for good reliable mechanics but I hadn’t yet. The pressing brake issue meant now I had to.  I should have when the alerts went off. Which by the way, never have since. If they do I know where I will take my car. Universe provides! Get it?

When problems arise, expected or unexpected, it is normal and easy to think negative thoughts. We have been conditioned to worry and have fears or doubts. THAT is precisely when we need to shift to the positive thinking and feeling. That is when we need to trust. Get it?

Inside every adversity is a seed of equal opportunity. When my other garage had closed I thought, ‘okay, now for something equal of even better’. I just didn’t make it a priority at that time. I put it out there that I needed a new mechanic. Then, I got a worse the problem.

Count Your Blessing – Things Always Work Out For The Best

AND it wasn’t really even a problem. It didn’t cost me anything and I found a great new mechanic. I am blessed. I called my friend and got a tip on how to gift the new mechanic. I went, purchased a gift, returned and gave it to him. The look I got back was worth it!

How cool. He gifted me with free service. I gifted him with something I found out he would like. He feels good and I feel good! I felt great giving the gift. While it may, or may not, be true that everything happens for a reason, I prefer to think that it does. That way everything IS a blessing to be grateful for, even, if at first it doesn’t appear to be one. I am blessed. You are blessed. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

It Sucks But You Aren’t Thinking Your Own Thoughts!

“I like to be challenged to think and challenge others to think. Thinking is a rare act for most people these days. Especially these days, but for all of time. Most of us live from memories. We run  old mental movies in our mind. The same old memories and thoughts.

We run the same repetitive self-talk we’ve repeated endlessly for years. It never changes but the days change. We rag on ourselves the same way. We blame others and circumstances the same way. Events and people change but our thoughts stay the same.

We live from old preconditioned thoughts we think over and over, believing them to be ‘free thought’. They aren’t. They are rules, beliefs, and opinions we accepted while growing up. We bought into them from parents, peers, experience and media of all types.

The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think

We are socially conditioned. We think we should go to school, get a job, work 40 hours a week, marry, have kids, be a good citizen because we have bought into that. In and of itself, none of that is not necessarily not good, but it can be if you accept it without choices.

Thinking and regurgitating our old pre-conditioining are two separate things. Opinion versus fact are not the same.  Most of us accept opinion as fact. This is why we are so easily deceived. We don’t bother to check for ourselves. How often do you vet sources?

We believe it because someone said it, or we heard it, read it, saw it on the internet, or TV or in movies and popular songs but we don’t fact check it. We elect officials off of platitudes and slogans and media image campaigns without checking first if they are any good.

You Become What You Think About Most Frequently

We accept so much at face value because it is repeated to us over and over again. We affirm what we are told numerous times. The same applies to our own thinking. We don’t check to actually see whether it is valid or not. Most of our own thinking is broken.

We just believe it is because we ‘think’ it. We shouldn’t! Most of our thoughts are old accepted conditioning that is now habit to think. We do it automatically. We react from habit not from new thought. We are conditioned to do this. We can change, but only if we want.

In order to change we must first become aware of it. We must recognize what we have been doing. We need to take responsibility for it and become aware when we do it next. This requires vigilance and dedication. It may seem difficult, and it can be, but gets easier.

To Change You Must Make The Unconscious Conscious – Be Aware

If you don’t do it you will continue the way you always have. If that is great and okay with you then continue. If it isn’t and you prefer to change and live more fully, abundantly, happily, heathy, wealthy and more successful then you need to make changes now. Don’t wait!

It doesn’t get easier or better the longer you wait. It only gets worse. Realize now, that you are where your thoughts have brought you. Take responsibility for everything you have and don’t have in your life. No one else is responsible for thinking your thoughts but you.

To change become aware when you find yourself thinking old negative, less than glorious, dis-empowering thoughts and change them to more powerful positive thoughts. Continue to do this until you make the new choices, the new thoughts, habit. Get it?

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

It is up to you and no one else. So stop blaming, excusing, and complaining and start telling the stories you want to be told. Create positive life experiences, new goals and dreams you achieve. Live, laugh, and love more. Practice gratitude. This is how you begin to change. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Are You A Faux Optimist?

“Some people think, ‘I can’t’ but who think they are, or may appear to be optimists, but they are not. They say nice things, but think mostly negative thoughts. A true optimist thinks ‘can do’ and handles any challenge. They see possibility, opportunity, success.

They don’t notice or pay attenton to negativity because they ARE an optimist. Remember, they see the glass half full. They think, ‘I can’. The negative person, pretend optimist, sees the glass half empty, not full, and worries this will disrupt their happiness. They worry a lot.

They are afraid, something will spoil their happiness. Their negativity does hamper their happiness. True happiness, or bliss or peace, transcends worry and fear. It only sees what is possible and what is good. It is not afraid of what is bad or what can’t be done. 

Optimism Is The Faith That Leads To Accomplishment

It notices it and then looks back toward the positive to what can be done and what is good and what is the potential for changing it. Then they do something positive. They don’t retreat or fear or segregate. Their awareness is recognizing when a change needs to take place.

From that awareness they then find solutions. They do not let the need for change cause discomfort. After all, they are true optimists. The look for and find the good in all. So, the true optimist isn’t bothered by anyone or anything. The live free from fear.

If one fears the negative, their actual focus is on the negative. If they doubt, worry or fear, that is where their attention it. That is where their energy goes. That is what they create and attract. Stop focusing on the negative. The optimist already knows this.

Pessimism Leads To Weakness Optimism Leads To Power

It is really quite simple when it comes down to it. You are what you eat. You are what you fill yourself with. You are where you spend your time. You are what you embrace. You are what you focus on. Therefore, focus on the good, the joyful. the fun, gratitude, positivity, peace, love, kindness and abundance. Stop focusing on anything less. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Must Choose Every Moment!

“Every day, every moment, you must make a choice. Faith or fear? Which do you live from? Choose. Will you look for the good or the bad? Choose. Will you speak only of the good, the blessing, the healing and prospering or will you speak of bad, lack and ill?

Choose! It is always, only your choice. No one else can choose for you. No one can force you to pick. You choose each moment what to put your attention on. Whatever you attend to most you end up creating or attracting or getting. What you focus on expands.

Time to stop choosing lack, fear, anxiety, sadness, and worse. Time to choose to focus on joy, peace, love and abundance. Concentrate on that which you already have to be grateful for and you will get more. Look for the blessings. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
