You Get Great Benefits Doing This: You Lose When You Don’t!

“Your career is going nowhere. You are in a dead end relationship. Debt is a mountain too high to see past. What to do? Perhaps, your struggling with only one area or all at once. Even it isn’t terrible it can be frustrating. Whatever your situation you need to do this!

Lately, I’ve shared with you the importance of taking a break and being able to walk away, at least temporarily, from circumstances that are brining you down. You want to vacate for awhile to refresh and renew. You want to regroup and gather your resources.

You want to stop considering it a problem and begin to find the blessings within. You need to marshal your mindset and take control. You can’t do that if you are hooked and dangling on a disaster line. You gotta get free to create space and allow things to work out.

Life Is Playfulness – Playfulness Is Sacred And Life Affirming – Play

This IS important! When you constantly fret, are worried or frustrated, in dire spirits about circumstances, when you are spinning your wheels trying to figure out the right move, all you really are doing is continuing to contaminate and perpetuate.

You must get free and optimize your attitude. Take a break. Trust that you don’t know everything, and that somehow, even though you don’t know how, it will all work out. You will land back on your feet. Then keep the faith. Do anything else for a while. Get it?

Take a mental and physical vacation. Leave the situation alone, completely. Get away from it. Camp, hike, swim, play golf, tennis, do anything to create that space to renew your mind and spirit. This is so important I am reiterating much of what I have previously said.

Discover The Magic That Surrounds You Through Playing

‘I don’t know how it is going to work out, but it will and I am grateful.’ Keep this thought in mind. ‘Everything will be fine’. Remember, you can’t see around the bend. Unless you take inspired actions, much of your activity is wasted and does not help. Let go!

You can’t take inspired actions in you aren’t inspired. If your mind and feelings aren’t working together to feel the very best, you are most likely only making things more difficult by trying to figure things out. You are occupied with busy work that is not productive.

Cultivate an attitude of play. You can do this anytime. It is great to spend time doing this when not in crisis mode. Then you have it available if difficult times present themselves. First off, difficult times are nothing but a blessing, if you are wise enough to know.

You Are Either Open And Free To Play Or You Are Not

Second, play increases your high vibes and good feelings. Play with abandon as a little child. Actually have fun. Don’t play to beat someone and make it another job. Play for fun, delight, enjoyment. Let go into wonderful feelings and frivolity. Play enhances learning.

You learned so much as a child through play. You imagined, you pretended, you modeled. You were and are free to play without goals. Simply play. Play games to enjoy. Allow the play to lift your spirits because it will when you abandon concerns and just play.

Be grateful. You can do this anytime, even if it has been a long time. Develop the habit of spending time in play. When you do you clear and free your mind and your spirit. You become more resourceful. You can later, return to circumstances refreshed and renewed.

Never Put Off Fun Until Tomorrow – You Can Have Fun Today

You can get more productively done with a clear mind and clean heart than you can through toiling and worrying. Drop seriousness. Drop the drama. Drop the garbage baggage you have carried for so long and play. Find fun. Then you can bring play to solving problems.

You will fare far better when you do. So play, wildly free and wholeheartedly. Become as a little child again no matter your age or crusty spirit. Become fascinated and adventurous. Let outdoors and wildlife captivate you, while you marvel. Appreciate it all and celebrate everything.” Rex Sikes

This Couldn’t Be More Clear But I Bet You Missed It: Please Don’t

“I’d like to point something out that should be obvious but sometimes it is not. I am an actor and filmmaker. I wear many hats. I’ve spent most of my life speaking on personal transformation, enlightenment, NLP, whole brain learning and the Law Of Attraction.

I shouldn’t have to refer to acting or filmmaking in every post, for actors or filmmakers to understand the principles and approaches I share can be applied to them. They can use these personally and to advance their careers. These principles apply to all of us to use.

Whatever walk of life you are in, or from, you can use these materials to make it better for yourself and others. BUT, I get it. Sometimes, we are so focused on ourself, or career, we limit the opportunities around us. We don’t see clearly. We only see ‘IT’.

Be Present – Be Playful – Be Divine – Live Fully – Enjoy Life

When I was a young actor in Hollywood I hated weekends and holidays because I couldn’t pursue my career or craft. Most all my friends were ‘in the business.’ I didn’t have time for fun and frivolity, even relationships were dependent on career choices and moves.

The bottom line is my life was so ‘movie business’ I didn’t have much of a life. That isn’t what life is about. Life is way too short to be so preoccupied, that we haven’t time for anything else. I want to share something, again, with you Napoleon Hill said. I paraphrase.

He stated he had modeled 520 of the then richest people in the world. He knew them, spent time in their homes, knew their families and out of all 520, he stated, only one was happy! The rest were obsessed, families in chaos, kids screwed up. They were messes!

Playing Builds Brain Pathways For Creativity Flexibility And More

Some killed themselves, others turned to drugs and alcohol. Why? Because they weren’t balanced. They were greedy. They quested money to the exclusion of everything else. He points out, if you want it you can get it, but be careful of what or how much you want.

Hill said he suffered similar consequences. He wanted things money could bring him. Ultimately, he realized, and reported nearer the end of his life that peace, happiness, relationships were more important. He said, get rich that is fine, but don’t be so greedy it ruins you.

The same is true about actors, artists, lawyers, bankers, educators, laborers and people from every walk. Live a little. Love a lot. Laugh and have good times. Enjoy life as it is happening. Don’t put it off. Pursue your careers and passions but don’t get lost or fanatical.

Life Is Better When You Are Smiling And Laughing

Take time to enjoy each other. To notice how beautiful this world actually is. Travel. It doesn’t have to be far, or cost a lot. Take a walk. Go for a ride. See something that inspires you. Fall in love. Share good times with others. Have fun. Relax, too. Enjoy tiny moments.

Remember, living makes you a better artist. The director Elia Kazan said, if you want to be a better actor or director, you need to live more and experience as much as you can. You can’t only focus on your craft. You need to bring in things from the outside.

Much of the innovation in the world comes from outside the field of inquiry. For example, when Edison attempted making the light bulb, after a while, his insights came from how charcoal is made; coals smoldering under dirt. He realized, he needed a vacuum tube.

Have A Sweet Tongue Dirty Mind Playful Heart And Loving Soul

Frequently, people puzzling over problems take breaks, naps and illumination occurs to them, in the same way you remember a name or bit of information, by giving up trying to recall it. Later, it pops in. Cross pollination; ideas coming from multiple sources, melding.

Relax. Let go. Sing, dance, make love. Laugh, skip, explore. Talk over a beverage or a picnic. Spend time doing other things. Have hobbies and other interests. Make more friends and acquaintances. Volunteer somewhere. Help someone else.  Enjoy the silence.

Enjoy the sun. Bask in the rain. These posts are meant to encourage, inspire, inform, motivate, give practical tips or suggestions you can easily implement. They are for everyone! Anyone can utilize the information. If you don’t use it, it is only info. If you apply, it can be life changing! Use what you learn to make life sumptuous. Live and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why You Need To Play More!


“Life can sometimes get the better of us. We worry about things we can and those things we cannot change. We worry about the world, the environment, the economy, our kids, others, our debts and more. We spend too much time and energy on the downside. Sad but true.

Look at Facebook or the news. More good things actually happen than bad things, yet most of what we see in media are the bad things. True, some are good, most are not so good. There isn’t anything wrong with being well informed. However, here is the issue:

Are these robbing you of your vital energy and life force? Are these distracting you, depleting your energy and joy in life? We should all enjoy life much more. Instead we worry, fear, death and taxes. Don’t you want to live better than this? I absolutely do. We all can!

Realize You Never Get The Same Moment Twice – Live Fully Now

Consider this: Kids learn more through play than anything else while growing up. During play they have fun, pretend, role play and plan for the future. It is all fun and games but during it all they are learning. Sadly, in schools today, the amount of play is reduced.

Now days kids play video games. They don’t have to use their imagination as they once did. We need to return to some basic principles. Play and exercise your mind. Become playful as you once were. YOU were! Learn and grow through play again! Enjoy it!

Live fully, have fun, feel abundance and enjoy all life offers. It is far too short to work, sweat, fret, fear and depart. Let’s spend more time playing and having fun, enjoying and loving the people important to us, and delighting in all good things. Spend time living fully!

Enjoy This Moment For This Moment Is Your Life 

Focus on these. Stop focusing on the downside. Create what you want more of. Focus on the blessings you have and you’ll have more. Live free. Live full. Feel blessed and you will be more blessed. When you feel great, filled with life and energy, you radiate it.

Vibrate high. Seek always to vibrate at your highest. Focus on the good, the beauty around you, in all areas. Allow yourself to be filled with positive, delightful energy because when you do you create and attract more. Like flowers to bees you become more attractive.

Feel grateful. Appreciate everything. Imagine, whether true or not, you chose this life to live and everything that comes your way is by your choice. Challenges are there to help you evolve and be better. Everything is your choice and everything is your design.

The More You Celebrate Life The More Life You Have To Celebrate

All of it is a blessing. It doesn’t matter if that is true or not. Adopt the mental framework so you take hold of every precious moment and live it to the fullest. Exude life. Exude joy and thankfulness. Discover your bliss. Life is easier when you do! Live in love! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Play! Then play some more today! Have fun!
