How To Understand And Utilize The Learning Curve

“Each person, the learner, needs to realize there is a learning curve. As you go through it you need to take time and relax. Enjoy the process of learning. You may be learning something you never knew or have done before. Be gentle on yourself. You are a newbie.

When learning adopt the attitude that it will be fun, there may be speed bumps but you can get over those easily. Stop pressuring yourself to be perfect doing something you never have before. Cut yourself some slack. Go easy. Stay with it. Play with it. Enjoy!

Whenever you do the correct things, repeatedly, consistently, for long enough, you begin to make that a habit. What I just described is the process of habit formation whether you intend to create one or not. Everyone of us has gone through this process infinite times.

The More We Do The More We Become Capable Of Doing

We develop the neural pathways of thought, feeling and behavior through repetition. Trying to stop a habit is difficult. Replacing one habit for another is much easier. It still requires the same process to learn the new habit so be patient. Be persistent. Relax and allow it.

When you go through the process of deliberately choosing a new mindset you’ll discover new ways of being opening up to you. When you first start the process of change all your former habits revolt attempting to keep you the same. It happens to everyone. Relax.

Recognize this and relax!  it is a good sign. It truly is. The barriers and walls and blocks will eventually crumble. The fact that they are fighting with you means you are on the precipice of change. There is the saying ‘old ways die hard’. They’ll fight. You’ll win if you persist.

Children Learn So Much More Through Play And Pretend

Stop responding the old way! Begin responding the new way. Yes, it takes commitment but it is worth it. It happens more quickly the more you accept the process. Don’t fight the process. Just stop! Negative thoughts or feelings will arise as you move forward.

Keep moving forward. Shift away from the negative. Focus on the positive. DO THOSE things that help you feel a bit better. Develop success habits. The only way you develop them is to do them over and over again until they become supportive reliable habits.

Keep the faith. Enjoy the process even when it isn’t enjoyable!! Think of it as  building your mind and will as you would build your body. Regular routine nutrition and exercise, long enough until you get the results you want. Then, it gets easier and is maintenance.

Notice It – Own It- Play With It – Stay With It – Make Learning Fun

Play with the things I’ve offered you. Begin by mastering the basics. That takes time. Yes, it takes commitment and effort. Nothing is free! If you want heat from the wood stove you need to cut the wood and put it in the stove and light the fire prior to getting heat.

So when you notice yourself thinking or feeling less than glorious, stop, breath and shift your thoughts and your physiology to something more productive and positive. Move, walk, sing, dance, smile. Think positive and keep thinking positive. Stay with this.

Stick with it. Keep at it. Let go and relax and have fun. I promise you IF you did nothing but made gratitude a habit and celebrated your life, moment to moment, most, if not all, issues would resolve, as if by magic. IT ISN’T magic. It is you doing it!

Only You Can Do It – No One Can Do Or Decide For You

The world may still hurl crap at you but you become different and learn to respond differently. SO stop thinking you need to get or be somewhere else. The destination is not the goal. Learning how to enjoy the journey right now, this moment, is the only goal you have.

Take care of the present and the rest will take care of itself. Live with passion and positivity. Enjoy this second. Celebrate it even when it seems hard. THAT is WHAT IS! That is the moment. You can enjoy it or choose not to, but that is what life offered right now. I suggest you transform yourself by leaning to celebrate. When you do YOU transform. So celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

The Past Doesn’t Matter But This Is Crucial!

“It doesn’t matter what you have done, or where you have been, or what has happened to you. The past is over and done with. If you are still carrying it around as baggage, drop it. Your future is not dependent on your past. It is only dependent on one small thing.

Your future isn’t dependent on how you grew up, what you did or didn’t have, your prior past conditioning, your mistakes or ‘failures’, you disappointments or heartbreak. None of it matters. The only thing that matters is what  you do next! What is your first next step?

If you want your life to change, you must change some things in your life. You can’t keep doing the same things over again and again and expect it to be different. Yet, that is what many people do. Stop that. Choose to be different! Choose to think, feel and act different.

If You Want Your Life To Change You Must Change Some Things 

Then begin. What you do next, following that decision, IS ALL that matters. Take the step. Commit to speak only to bless, heal and prosper yourself. Commit to thinking positive thoughts and shift away from the negative when you notice it. Get it? Take a step!

When you notice yourself feeling bad, shift from whatever you are thinking about. That ‘negative’ feeling is the signal to pay attention to. It is alerting you that you need to change your thoughts. Shift away from the negative thoughts and feelings to positive thoughts

Your thoughts determine your feelings. Change what you are thinking about and you change how you feel. You won’t feel differently continuing to thing the same thoughts. You must change them. When you do you can begin to feel different. Stop and change.

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

Like attracts like. Birds of a feather flock together. Neurons that fire together wire together. One negative thought produces or attracts another. Soon you will have a flock BUT one positive thought produces and attracts another positive. Soon you will have a flock.

All that matters is not what you have got, but what you do next, with awareness. Become aware of what isn’t work and shift from that to something better. Feeling down, make it a point to feel a little bit better. Take one step toward feeling better then keep on stepping.

Step by step you get there. Too many people want a BIG result and instant transformation and miss out. They wait for fireworks when instead transformation can begin in small ways and explode exponentially. 1% of change a day is 365% of change in a year.

It Is Never Too Late To Change Your Life – Begin Today

1% off on a rocket to the moon and that spaceship will miss the moon by millions and millions of miles. A small degree of change amounts to incredible results BUT ONLY when you instigate and follow through on that small degree. Do it daily, moment to moment.

Do nothing and get nothing. You will have what you always did. Change something, anything, for the better and you will begin to change everything. Drop by drop the tub fills. Put into practice small positive daily rituals that don’t seem like much. They are easy to do.

Keep doing them and you’ll get mountains of change. Everything can and will change, you just have to begin and follow through. Expect good results but you won’t see them for awhile. Seeds germinate under ground in darkness, you don’t see it happening right away.

You Eat An Elephant One Bite At A Time – But You Still Eat It

A seed takes time to sprout a plant takes time to bloom, but once it does blossoms abound. One plant can produce thousands of seeds. Expect good results and be patient. Have fun, take it easy. Do something and make it routine. Find the blessings and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

All Work And No Play Makes You Dull: Have Fun!

“All work and no play makes Jack and Jill dull. While it is important to focus on your goals, have white-hot obsession and persistence in pursuit of making these happen, it is equally important to play and have fun. Delight! Let go. Enjoy the many magical moments daily.

Play serves useful purposes. We learn while we play. While off doing other enjoyable activities our brains continue to process, work on, review and incorporate our learning and efforts. Muscles need a break from work out to grow and we do to from ‘striving’. Get it?

Have fun. Play. Become fascinated. Be curious. Be a little kid. Feel thrilled, delighted and enthused. Vibe high. More magic happens when you enjoy being blessed and live passionately. Live as if every moment is a miracle. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Supercharge Your Day

“When it comes to beginning your day, don’t wait. Make it happen. When you arise, think positive. Think how much you love your life and how grateful you are for another day. Use your awakening moments to set the tone for the day. Make it positive and happy.

Decide to vibe high. Decide to feel good! Don’t let circumstances dictate how you feel YOU decide how you feel and how you will feel. Get thrilled and get enthused. Feel happy, positive, powerful, and playful. Be optimistic. Set the frame of mind to make a glorious day.

No one determines how you go through the day, but you. Most people don’t realize this and act as victims to outer influences. The number one thing you can control in this world, in fact the only thing you can absolutely control, is YOU. Control your thoughts!

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes 

When you take charge, instead of being a victim, you become the victor. You chose to respond differently than others might. You choose to be positive, resourceful and bigger than any obstacle or road block. When you do this daily, you develop the positive habit.

You condition yourself to be more resourceful, more optimistic, more positive and that makes you more clear headed and able to resolve difficulties that may arise. In fact, stop considering difficulties problems but opportunities you haven’t discovered yet.

Manage your mind, your thoughts and feelings and you will act positively more consistently which will get you the kind of results you hope to get. Transform yourself by the renewing of your mind and your heart each and every day. Do it and you will know!

Control Your Attention – What You Focus On Expands

Meditate first thing. Express your gratitude. Shout your affirmations enthusiastically. Visualize. Decide to have a fabulous day. Decide to smile and laugh more! Help others to do the same. As you do you will notice how much easier it gets and how delighted you are. Get it?

Create a powerful, positive morning routine and you will begin to notice the benefits! Learn to feel blessed. Develop the habits that support you in being the kind of person you want to be. Do this daily and you will become so amazed! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

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

ENJOY!

Why You Need To Play More!

horizon-2-spring-phil-koch

“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!
