Category Archives: Overcoming Difficulty

Do You Sometimes Feel Up Against A Wall?

What do your muscles need to grow? Proper nutrition is important, rest and resistance. Weight training builds muscle. It breaks it down and it grows back bigger. Our mental and our inner heart muscles need the same; proper nutrition, rest and resistance. It’s important!

Strength grows in your moments of challenge. Obstacles are the resistance that cause you to grow. You become stronger, more resilient, confident, happy and successful through overcoming difficulty, when you recognize it as a challenge to excel.

If you look at it as an annoyance, a devastation and something to avoid, your inner muscles won’t get flexed. They need a workout to grow and develop. The kite rises against the wind. It is the sail and the wind captured, that resistance that moves the boat ahead.

The Struggles Today Develops Your Strength For Tomorrow

So when things go awry, when your plans turn upside down, when the shit hits the fan and the bottom falls out, what to do about it? Accept it. We can move forward through problems if we choose to.

It requires awareness, it requires release and let go instead of giving up. It requires persistence and commitment to overcome and move forward. Attitude determines how well you do and how far you go. Embrace your problems. Look on them as real opportunity to learn.

Don’t run from problems that solves nothing. Don’t whine, complain, excuse or blame that only perpetuates the issue and brings you more of the same ill fortune. Instead embrace. Meet the challenge head on. Determine to be bigger than any obstacle. Decide to prevail!

I Never Met  A Strong Person With An Easy Past

Be David meeting Goliath. You can always find or create a way through, around, above, beneath, within. Create a path to victory. Adjust and continue. Keep going. Learn and develop resilience. Be thankful because gratitude can change everything. Attitude matters.

Count your blessings instead of your problems. Tell different situational and life stories. Determine to speak only to bless, heal and prosper. Affirm the good and the positive enthusiastically. Visualize the outcome as already yours. Feel it. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What To Do When You Are Stuck In A Bad Story You Keep Repeating PT 2

“In my recent post I asked, what is a fact and what isn’t? I asked where could you put your attention when things aren’t going right, so you can unlock positive, productive possibilities? Today, I’ll  elaborate on how you can make positive and powerful changes.

There are times when you feel down and beaten. Do not let yourself get too far down. It is important to take control, in spite of circumstances and do whatever you can to feel better. To feel your best. Negative thinking produces negative feelings and it loops.

You can spiral down or spiral up. It is always your choice. It may not seem like it is. You may have learned to feel helpless or that things are hopeless but you aren’t and they are not. That is only prior negative conditioning and it can be changed. Seek to change it.

You Are Not The Product Of Circumstances But Of Your Decisions

Do whatever positive things you can to feel better. Take a walk. Work in the garden or on some physical project. Exercise, do yoga, get a massage. Run, sing, jump. Hang in nature for awhile. RECLAIM YOUR POWER and feel as best as you are able to.

Even just a little better is a step in the right direction. Keep taking steps in the direction of feeling your best and you will eventually get there. Keep the faith when all seems hopeless. It is hard at first, especially, if you haven’t yet conditioned yourself to do this. You can!

So where else might you put your attention that would be more productive and feel better. Think and speak only to bless, heal and prosper. What story do you want to perpetuate? The habitual negative, limited one, or the one with positive possibilities?

Joy Is A Decision – Happiness Is A Choice – Decide To Live Well

You aren’t aware of what you aren’t aware of. You can’t be. But you can begin to become aware of the other possibilities that are available to you by shifting your attention. How might things be otherwise than how you think they are? Consider  this.

You may think you have the gospel version and that is because of your prior, chronic, limited, negative conditioning. You are locked in a thought habit. You think you know how it is because this is how you operate. Do something this time. Change what you think.

It is your choice! Energy flows where your attention goes. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CREATE? Ask yourself? HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE FEELING? What questions do you need to ask and where do you need to put your attention to do this? Then ask and then do!

Stop Reinforcing Negative Habits – Reinforce Positive Habits

Since you don’t know what you don’t know, STOP being limited by what you think you do know. Be willing to explore what else might be there you just haven’t considered yet. Explore. Search your inner resources. Make it a point to feel your best in spite of the obstacles.

Focus on gratitude. Focus on the little you have because when you do it expands. You can grow it. You can amplify the good or the bad it is your choice. How do you want to live? What do you want to feel like? It is always your decision and you determine the outcome.

The results you get are based on what you choose to focus on. Do you want to feel restricted, limited, and less than glorious or do you want to feel positive, powerful and unlimited. Either one depends on how you choose to use your mind. Start making positive changes.

Don’t Miss The Obvious Because Of The Obvious – Become Aware

DECIDE NOW to STOP REINFORCING NEGATIVE PATTERNS and scenarios. STOP living as a victim. Stop perpetuating your own limiting myths and start telling new stories. Start focusing on the good. Start living as a victor. Take charge!

When you take charge, when you deliberately focus your mind on the positive, when you live in gratitude for anything and everything, everything begins to change. You can make it all different. You can start living how you deserve to be living. DO IT! AND celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What To Do When You Are Stuck In A Bad Story You Keep Repeating

“What is a fact and what isn’t? I spoke with someone who described a situation and said, ‘that is the way it is.’ They let me know  they weren’t expressing, ‘it is what it is’, but that their version of reality was the only version. They felt circumstances couldn’t be changed.

They (I use they to obscure the individual and gender) felt they knew how everything was and would play out. I reminded them to be careful what story they were telling and repeating to self and others. After all, this is how we interact. We describe our history; our day.

Be sensitive to what you continue to perpetuate and to what you want to create. Put a guard before your thoughts and words. SPEAK ONLY to bless, heal and prosper. SPEAK ONLY the version you want to perpetuate. Speak the truth in advance of it happening. Declare!

Most People Miss The Obvious – Because Of The Obvious

Let the rest go. For example, when you think, ‘I don’t have enough money. I can’t do it. I will never find real love. Business sucks. With this economy I will never succeed. I am so unlucky’ or any other limiting thought variation, ask yourself a question or two.

‘What am I not noticing right now, that I could be seeing, had I another level of awareness? What am I missing that I could soon begin to notice? What else might I pay attention to that I haven’t yet? How might things be otherwise than how I think they are?’

‘What am I not seeing, not noticing or considering, that’d make a difference? Where else can I put my attention that would be more productive? Consider this: you are simply reacting the way you typically react because of your prior, chronic, conditioning. Get it?

Become Alert – Become Aware – There Are Infinite Possibilities

You aren’t noticing what you don’t notice, hence you accept your version as the only version. I am not trying to get you to doubt yourself. I am trying to get you to doubt your limiting version. It is only a mental creation, as is anything else. You can believe it or not.

As Henry Ford stated, ‘whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.’ In other words, you don’t know, what you don’t know. There are many other possible avenues for you to pursue than you realize. It is important to be open to other versions. Get it, yet?

‘In how many different ways might I discover I am truly loved and can find an ideal mate?’ May be a question to consider. ‘How quickly can I discover that I have always had enough money, even when it didn’t seem like it, Things always work out and I land on my feet.’

Recognize When You Are Stuck In Your Own Loop And Change It

‘There are businesses all around me. Some do better, some worse. How soon might I be delighted, to begin, to discover the many different ways I can improve my  business success? ‘In how many different ways have things always worked out positively for me?’

EVEN IF I DIDN’T NOTICE IT YET! Awareness is an ongoing process. We can’t consider everything. We typically consider what we are used to considering. There are many things outside our present awareness we could consider instead. This is important!

More in the next blog. Now ask yourself, what can you feel grateful for? Discover your many blessings you haven’t fully validated, yet. Put your attention on the good. Fill your mind with what you have that IS working. Suspend putting attention on anything less than glorious. Begin now to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Make Changes You Haven’t Been Getting PT 2

“Have you wondered why I have this as a lead picture? Why a field with a bale of hay? What does this farm image have to do with you, your career, your success and happiness? What do you suppose Rex might be getting at? It is important; the picture and the point.

I’ll get to that reason in a moment, but first, realize you are energy. Every thing is energy and everything vibrates. You vibrate your thoughts and feelings.  Current research indicates your heart vibrates and transmits 1000s of times stronger than your brain.

Tens of thousands of times stronger than thoughts, are your feelings. You can research into this area of ‘heart coherence’. What does this mean? It means you vibrate a feeling. What you are feeling most often in your life is what you are radiating, transmitting, creating.

You Will Always Be Out Of Your Comfort Zone If You Are Growing

What you feel is what you attract. How do you feel most of the time? Are you frustrated, are you okay, or are you enthused and joyful? It actually matters! You create who and what you are over, what you want. You create and attract what you feel most frequently.

This is one reason it is important to feel your best. Even if you feel crummy, move towards feeling a little bit better. It also dictates how we create and attract what we want. If you want a brand new car, thinking of the car is not what gets you the car. The car isn’t it.

It is the feeling you will have of getting the car. Why do you want it? How will you feel to get it? What does it feel like to own and drive it? Get it? It is the feeling of already having the car that gets you the car.  You make it happen. Feelings are the driver! Feelings matter!

Stay Positive – Be Strong – Feel Your Best – You Can Do It – Do It

Feelings come from the thoughts, the images and beliefs you repeatedly think. If you think a bad thought you feel bad. Because you feel bad your next thought is negative. It is a loop, spiraling downward. You can spiral upward, too. That’s what you want to do!

Positive or negative feelings drive your actions and inaction. When you are feeling top of the world, on your game, vibrating high, you generate inspired actions. These feelings inform the brain’s Reticular Activating System (RAS) to be alerted to opportunity.

If you are focused on the car, and having the feelings of already having it, your RAS alerts you to opportunities to make getting the car happen. It works this way. Feel great and great things happen. Feel less than great and less than great things happen. Get it?

Energy Goes Where Attention Goes – Feel Your Very Best

You are responsible for what you get, or don’t. If you aren’t getting what you want, then you must make some changes in order to create what you want. It is completely up to you! Stop blaming and accusing, making excuses and complaining, and start feeling better.

Think, feel and act better. NOW the picture. The bale of hay, those bales of hay, didn’t attract themselves magically into the shape they are. Someone did the work. Someone made it happen. Whether the person enjoyed it or not, a human did it, by hand or machine.

You must take charge and be in charge to get what you want in life. Don’t wish it or expect others to do it for you. YOU do it! You and only you. When you take 100% responsibility for everything, no matter what, you operate from a place of power and leadership.

You Make It Happen – You Create It – You Attract It – It Is You

Lead yourself into greatness, why don’t you? If you spend most of your time feeling great and blissful and ecstatic and joyful, then you’ll get more of that.  If most of the time you feel OK, you’ll get OK. If you feel sucky, then you get sucky back. That’s Law Of Attraction.

You get back what you put out. You get back the results of your creating. Become ‘the cause’, instead of being ‘at effect’. To be responsible means you look at what it is that you’re not getting and make changes so that you can make it happen.  Get it? I hope so!

100% responsibility. Shouldering that responsibility means changing things in your life, so that your life can change. Be willing to examine yourself about what you’re doing or are not doing. Then make the positive change that brings you closer to what you do want. Do it.

What You Feel Is What You Get – What You Think Is How You Feel

This is another reason why gratitude is so important. When you’re focused on what you’re thankful for you feel better. When you feel better you create better. You attract better things into your life. You make better things happen. That is why it’s important to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Need To Know About The Dark Times!

“Darkness is necessary for growth, as is sunlight. Everything has a season. Tides come in and go out. Life changes. People change. Nothing is written in stone.  It is all physical, mental and emotional processes. Process implies movement and movement is change.

Never give up. Even if you did nothing at all, ever, you would change. That is nature. That is the nature of life. Everything changes given enough time. Nothing is permanent. Everything is in flux at some level. You may or may not notice it but everything moves. Atoms.

Thoughts are simply those things you think. They are not you. They are something you do from habit. You may not like the thoughts you think much of the time. You may not like the results of your thinking. Still, habits can be changed. You can change your thinking! You!

Energy Isn’t Created Or Destroyed – Energy Is Transformed

Take control. It can be instantaneous, mostly it is by step by step. You change inch by inch, foot by foot, yard by yard, mile by mile. It is incremental. It seems slow at first but it gets faster as you go along. The more you do, the more you are able to do, and more easily.

You get better at it. So, know this: you can, and will, always get through, and beyond, any troubling issue. It may not seem like it but you can, if you decide to. It is difficult to see connections projecting forward. You can’t. You can only connect the dots looking back.

You can’t connect dots looking forward. Moving forward you need to decide, plan, take action and move. You go a far as you can see and when you get there you can see farther. Looking back, you may find the meaning of troubling situations BUT, in reality, all are blessings.

Focus On What You Have To Gain – Not On What You Give Up

Learn to practice gratitude for the past. Be grateful for every bit, all past. You may say, ‘but, but’. BUT do it. Learn to appreciate all the hard, dark, even terrible moments. You got through them. That was then. What did you, what could you, learn from the past?

It is no longer! Don’t carry the baggage from the past. Look back and see it how it brought you to now, this moment, where you can change your thoughts about it, and transform your life for the better. Feel gratitude for the past. Be thankful for the present, this moment.

Feel blessed for all of it, then and now; every moment, person, event and circumstance. Expect to be blessed in the future. Unexpected good will come your way, Feel gratitude for the future. You will be different. That moment passed, this moment, too will pass.

If You Want All Things To Change Faster – Change Yourself

You will always land on your feet. Expect to. Expect unexpected good. Realize, it mostly goes how you think it will; what you think it is. It becomes what you say it is; how you define it determines what you pay attention to. It is the gospel according to you. It’s yours!

What you focus on, you get. Thoughts are things. Still, you can change from negative to positive. You never have to remain stuck. Things change! Learn to think differently about anything. You can learn to feel differently, too. It is whether or not you choose to.

Moving your body, changing your physiology changes your mental and emotional state.  Exercise and hard physical work has been prescribed for depression and anxiety since ancient times. Everything can change, if you are willing. You can make it better.

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

Move, go for a walk. Change your thinking. Focus on what you want, not on the problems. Practice gratitude. Feel the gratitude. Stay with it. Focus on it, again and again. Read inspiring materials. Surround yourself with positive people and messages. Affirm your power and visualize the good, again and again. It gets better! Especially, when you celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
