Success Comes From Steady Progression

My last post included this quote ‘Success is the steady progression toward the realization of a goal,’ by Earl Nightengale. To succeed, all you have to do is keep progressing toward your goal. It is never over until it is over. You decide that moment. Many quit too soon.

Keep moving forward. An inch moved in the right direction, is progress in the right direction. Whether you get there slowly or quickly, you get there. Remember, the story of the tortoise and the hare? The tortoise methodically made it to the finish line.

You can too. Keep the faith. Keep doing a little bit each day. ‘Drop by drop the tub gets filled.’ You are not in a race. Remember that and keep the following in mind. Steady, positive progression is all that is needed. As long as you are progressing you are succeeding.

You Become What You Think About Most Often Each Day

Keep going. Keep making progress toward your goal. YOU can make it happen. You will! Just don’t quit. Never give up. You will learn and grow in the process. You’ll make mistakes and correct them. You will find or create a way. Along the way, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Are You Cut Out For Happiness And Success?

“‘Success is the steady progression toward the realization of a goal,’ said, Earl Nightengale. Some give up while still progressing. They quit, throw the towel in on their career, romance, business or life goals. When quitting isn’t an option, most people can succeed.

Statistics demonstrate that most people quit right before they would have succeeded. Most businesses fail within a couple years. Had they been able to stick it out, they’d have soon succeeded. Are you cut out for success? Will you do what it takes to get to the top?

Mindset is the key factor that determines how far you go. You either decide you are all in, or you decide to opt out. No one can tell you when to cut your losses and change direction, but you. Of course, you can take advice from worthy mentors. That might be wise.

Winners Never Quit – Quitters Never Win – Which Are You

Chose someone one who has what you want and started out as you did. This mentor should be successful and knowledgeable in the lines you desire to get mentored about. Don’t go to a farmer about banking or a banker about farming. Get it? Go to a qualified expert.

When it comes to mindset, you can make awesome progress in your evolution alone, and especially with a good mentor.  Mindset determines how far you go, your level of commitment and persistence. Make it a point to daily work on your attitude.

Commit to positive, powerful thinking. Take charge. Learn how to direct your mind to go after your goals; to make happen what you want to make happen. Stop wishing and hoping things change and change them yourself. You can, when you realize you can.

Winners Fail But They Don’t Quit – Winners Fall But They Get Up

It is all up to you. Champions know this. It’s time you learned it, too. Champions aren’t born. Champions are made. They condition their mind and body and finely hone their mental and physical skills. They invest in themselves; their time, energy, even money, in making it so.

Don’t you think you deserve to be a champion? I do. I believe you can. You must believe it, too, because it doesn’t matter what I believe about you. Take hold of your thinking and feeling power and begin to make these work for you. When you do, truly, you will celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What To Do When Support Is Needed

“It isn’t cool to gloat over the trials and tribulations of anyone. Nor is it cool to further kick someone when down or when they screw up. We all can stand to learn this. Hopefully, we can be sensitive to others when they are going through tough times, friends or foe.

It isn’t for us to judge.  Most of the time, the worst moments of our lives are our most powerful, defining moments. We only discover this when looking back on them. Unless, one is wise enough to realize everything is a blessing, if we choose to view it that way.

Speed bumps in individual life and collective lives are evidence of evolution and change. Not much more, really. We change, we grow, we rise, we fall. Hopefully, we get up again, because we can. It is in getting up that we learn our strength and our tenacity.

Encourage Believe And Love Yourself – Never Lose Faith In You

Prevail by persisting. Face the demons. Face Goliath and conquer him. Whatever holds you back, whatever the limitations in thought, feelings, actions, know how or skills, won’t stop you if you don’t let it. Keep moving in the direction to getting your goals. Make it happen.

Help others when they need it. Be willing to lend an assisting or supportive hand to friend, stranger or foe. Do the same for yourself. Be your own best, non-judgmental friend. Encourage yourself. Give yourself a friendly pat on the back and a kind word. Do the same for others, too. Consider all a blessing and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What And Who Determines Your Success? The Bad And Good News

“The great problem for most people is they believe they’re victims of circumstance, events and other people; others and circumstances determine whether they, the individual, rise or fall, succeed or fail. They believe ‘something else’ is responsible, not them. Do you?

It can be blatant or quite subtle. I overheard someone the other day say, what a positive thinker they were, but how the economic downturn caused them to go under. On and on this person went. Is this an accurate description of reality? Perhaps, but perhaps not.

If you believe others and circumstances are responsible for you then, yes, to some degree it is accurate. Your beliefs shape your reality. However, it’s more likely that these outer forces influence you, and your decision, but don’t cause you to fail or succeed.

You Are Unstoppable When You Believe In Yourself

What you do determines whether you succeed or fail. Thinking outer forces control you is believing in magic and fantasy. If you believe outer forces dictate your fate then you have no choice, you are predestined or merely a puppet. Something else is in charge.

Do you get this? Hey, a bridge can be out, and you must take detour, that is an influence. Whether you continue to your destination is up to you, not the bridge. The weather can be bad. You might be delayed. Whether or not you continue on eventually, is up to you.

The economic situation can change. You could lose everything. Many do. Many become rich during the worst of times. What you do in that situation is up to you. Your life partner can leave you. How you continue on, is up to you. Yes, or circumstances can influence.

Don’t Be Pushed By Your Problems Be Lead By Your Dreams

What each of us, needs to cultivate is the belief that you are powerful. You have the ability and inner resources, even if hidden, to make your dreams come true. If you somehow, don’t have the inner resources, you can learn to  develop them, so you can succeed.

Believe in yourself more than outer influences. Those who do make their way to success and happiness. They don’t let anything or anyone rain on their parade. They keep their attention, and intensity, on where they want to go and, believe and, work to get there.

They don’t give up. Those who throw in the towel or quit don’t cross the finish line. Realize you are in a process of becoming. You are in a process of learning. You are in a process of creating your path. You are in the process of gathering your resources and making it happen.

Follow Your Dreams – Believe In Yourself – Never Give Up – Do It

Everything I have shared with you in these daily blogs helps you to understand and cultivate the beliefs and everything you need. My recent videos and audios, and workshops for decades, have been designed to assist you in making your life the way you want it.

When you apply, these tried and true principles and approaches, handed down from ancient times to present, backed up by research and the success of countless hundreds of thousand who have used them to succeed, YOU can too. Whether you do, or not, is up to you.

To know and not to do, is to not know. If you don’t consistently do what can help you to be better and make your dreams come true, don’t complain. Complaining, whining, excusing and blaming others and yourself is pointless and detrimental. It doesn’t help anyone.

Your Mind Believes What You Feed It – Feed It Positive Thoughts

Dedicate yourself to becoming the best. Do, at the very least, a little each day, and you will get there much quicker than doing nothing at all. Do you get this? The more you do, the more you become capable of doing. Engage. Plug in ! Do it. Cultivate the beliefs and attitudes.

Develop the mindset that gives you the edge. When you think and feel you are successful, no matter what, then you can be. Mindset first! Practice gratitude and appreciation. When you feel your best you bring about the best. Mindset first! Get it? If you do, then take charge. Take action and celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

Your Answer To This Question Will Determine If You Can Succeed

Most people claim they are ready and willing to be happy and succeed. Most may even claim they have had enough of life the way it has been and they want it to be different. They will do anything to get out of debt, depression, anxiety and fear. BUT will they?

Will you? What most people claim and what most people do are  worlds apart. The honest answer to my question can determine the likelihood of whether or not you change AND whether you change easily. You can’t bullshit a bullshitter. So be true to yourself.

That is the most difficult thing to do, sometimes. If you really want to change you must face certain things. Here is the question: How willing are you to change? That is it. What is your willingness to change quotient. Are you actually willing to change your life?

If You Want Things To Change – You Have To Change

Okay, I asked the same question three different ways. So what is your answer? Many people say they will do anything to change, but they won’t. What about you? If you truly want your life to change you must change some things in your life. You can’t remain the same!

If you always do what you have always done, you will always get the same results. You will continue to get what you have always got. Get it? Unless you are willing to change, and actually change things, everything remains the same. You need to learn new habits. So…..

How willing are you to change? How much money will you spend? I bet some went, ‘Whoa, money! I’m not going to spend money? This will cost me? I can’t afford much. Do you know how much debt I have? It is always about money!’ Or some variation. Right. Did you?

If You Want Things To Be Better – You Have To Be Better

It always comes down to money, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no. How much time are you willing to dedicate? Someone just thought, ‘I have no time as it is!’ Or some variation. What are you willing to give up or go without? Would you give up your favorite TV show?

Would you go without your favorite show, or past time, for a year, if it meant you could get your goals and live your dream life? Would you give up junk food;  Alcohol; Tennis: Golf; Poker; Whatever it is? What are you willing to give in exchange for changing your life?

People say they are willing but, more frequently, do nothing to change. Would you read positive, books and articles and blogs for an hour each day? Would you for 30 minutes? 5 minutes? What are you willing to do? Would you listen to inspirational audios? Well?

If You want To Have More – You Have To Become More

How about you take a seminar or program. Attend a learning event or workshop. Would you commit to a weekly, or monthly, meeting? What will you do to change? The bottom line is your change IS going to cost you something! Either money, time, energy or habits.

Either you pay the price or you don’t change. Get it? You can’t do everything the same way you always have and expect things to be different. That is truly insane! Right? That IS the definition of insanity. To be different you must do things differently! Get it?

So how willing are you to do whatever it takes to get what you want? That is the question. How willing are you to change? What is your willingness? If you say you are very willing then prove it to yourself. Take some immediate action in that direction. Don’t wait. Do it.

Your Life Is A Reflection Of Your Thoughts and Feelings – Mindset

If you wait, you won’t! If you have to think about it, you won’t. Old habits die hard. Do it right now. Do it within 24 hours. That way you convince your brain you are serious about changing. Take action in the direction of the changes you want. Don’t let it go or it goes away.

People give lip service to change but make all manner of excuses. They whine, complain, and blame. They say, ‘If you only knew how hard it is…’ Blah blah blah. Anyone can make an excuse. If the first thing that goes off in your head is one, learn to change that. Do it!

You need to develop automatic, reliable, supportive thought, feeling and behavior habits, that are aligned, to help you get yourself what you want in life. We all have many that distract and keep us limited, weak, angry, doubtful and fearful. We need to change these.

So What Positive Good Will You Do To Change Your Life

When you shift from the less than supportive habits to the more supportive ones sometimes there is inertia to overcome. ‘Old habits die hard’. Still, we can change. Sometimes in some time. Sometimes instantly. But only if you are willing, can it happen. Are you willing?

How willing are you to change things, so that you transform your life for the better. I show you how in these blog pages every day. There are tips and suggestions, powerful principles and practices. Do you use and apply them? Do you go back and study these blog posts?

What do you do to make you, and your life, better? To develop a new habit you must consistently, correctly, apply yourself. That means daily, even numerous times during the day. So how willing are you to change? How committed? Be honest. Be true to yourself.

When You Decide To Take Action – Act Immediately – Do It Now

If you are truly willing and committed then you can and will change. Have you watched my video? I linked it below. Do you practice gratitude? Can you count everything as a blessing, yet? If not you have some practicing and celebrating to do. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Hold In Your Head You Can One Day Hold In Your Hand

“What we hold in our head, we can some day hold in our hand. That is a statement you may or may not be familiar with. It means we bring forth that which we picture or imagine. Without a definite plan or image we drift, results and life are haphazard. Who knows what?

So we create a strong internal image of what we want to create and focus on it daily. We make daily concentration on our image or goal a habit. This informs and trains our subconscious, our treasure chest of resources and hidden abilities, we want to make THIS happen.

Then we take the steps necessary to create it. Recently, I wrote that a sculptor gets an idea, gathers the materials, fashions the medium into the final end result. The sculptor creates it. It is the same with each of us. We concentrate on our goal and translate it into reality.

Visualizing Is Daydreaming With A Purpose

Focus daily on what you want. It can’t be a whim, it must be intense. You must be passionate about it or you won’t make it happen. Vision boards are good. It’s a poster with pictures on it of what you want to create. Put pictures on the dash of your car to remind you.

Pictures, drawings, photos around the house or work space that bring your attention back to what you want to create. Journal about it. Carry with you and read your goal statement at least twice a day or more. These help put your attention on it. Visualize it 5 minutes.

Energy flows where attention goes. Focus on your goal, intensely. Imagine being it, doing it, and having it already. Enjoy and enhance those feelings. Be grateful for this. Believe you can make it happen. Be certain you will do it. Certainty, comes in time. It really does.

Fill Your Mind With Positive  Pictures And Your Life  Will Change

If you don’t already feel certain about it, stay with it. You will develop the certainty over time. Do it! It comes through daily commitment.  Delight in the creative process. Be glad you are a creator. Take charge. Make it happen. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Are Either All In Or You Are Not In At All

“I spent time with a friend, mentor, today. He shared some powerful, pertinent ideas for all of us. It was a wonderful time. He shared how he grew his business and how he felt starting out. He got very successful in a very short period of time. Read and remember!

Another mentor of mine, went from less than nothing, to fabulously happy, healthy and rich in five years. Within three years, this gentleman changed his entire life. He began by asking, ‘what do you think it was like for me starting out? Then he began to share.

‘I built my business on a horrible presentation. I didn’t know what to do or how to talk about it. I didn’t know what to say. I  was scared. I didn’t have a clue how to share what I was doing with people. I sucked at it.  I felt like I was in over  my head; out of my league.

Wherever You Go – Go With All You Heart – You Have To Commit

BUTI just kept doing it. I had a vision of success I wanted to, one day, soon achieve. As someone said, your vision of victory must be bigger than your fear of failure. That is a choice. I had reasons to stop. Lots of things were not okay, but I kept going.  I was not organized.

The technology back then sucked. I just kept going. I just kept doing it. I made a promise to myself to continue in spite of obstacles. In spite of everything, anything, I would continue. I had mentors, I made myself coachable. I listened and I learned. I screwed up plenty.

Still, I listened and learned. I sharpened my axe everyday. I invested in myself and kept myself sharp. I filled my mind every day with positive reasons and thoughts. I read positive books. I stayed close to my mentors. I didn’t let disappointment or fear stop me.

We Are Here On Earth To Go All In – Make It Happen – Do It

The reason I made it in business is because I had reasons to succeed. I wanted to spend more free time with my children. I wanted to be with them while they grew up. Most people make just enough to get by, and that is it. I mean we all have cell phones and a place to live.

Most people aren’t hungry enough. They do just enough to manage. Dream big. If you don’t have a big dream, you’ll just get by.  We all want more than we have, but don’t pursue it! It is all or nothing. Do it. Buckle in. Make it happen. Only those hungry enough will.’

Yes, powerful words. You’re either all in the game or you are not in the game at all. Think on these things. Invest in yourself. Spend time reading and studying. Fill your mind with positive thoughts and gratitude. Spend time with people who are making it happen.

Commitment Transforms Dreams Into Reality – Decide To Do It

Commit to being successful. Dream big so you want to make it happen. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
