What You Believe Can Kill You! Ask Mr. Wright. Ooops, You Can’t He Is Dead.

“The Placebo Effect states simply, if you believe something will benefit you, then it’s possible, and likely, it will. The Nocebo Effect states simply, if you think it will harm you, or have no effect, then it’s possible, and likely, it will. These effects  are well researched.

There is a famous real-life story about the placebo effect and Mr Wright. I shared this in an earlier blog post a while back. Mr. Wright believed a drug his doctor could get would save him based on what he read about in the press. His doctor administered a placebo.

The doctor told him he was getting the medicine he thought would help. His condition improved. Later, he read in the newspaper the ‘miracle drug’ didn’t work. His condition deteriorated. His doctor convinced him otherwise and his condition again improved.

You Are Today Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

Later, he read the drug was a hoax. He died. Both the Placebo and Nocebo effect were at work. They are always at work about everything. We are always thinking. It isn’t just in medicine, but that is where the effect became obviously known. Look it up.

People have believed in all sorts of things and found help. Lourdes, amulets, faith healers, Voodoo healing and Voodoo curses, the Evil Eye. The list is endless. If you believe a food or practice is healthy for you it is likely it can be, even if it isn’t. Your beliefs may make it so.

If you believe it is harmful, it too, can be likely, even if it isn’t. If you believe it will add weight to you or help you shed pounds, then too, it is possible. It is all about what you believe! Nothing is locked in stone. Our beliefs determine our reality more than the other way.

You Will Be Tomorrow Where Your Thoughts Take You

I am not suggesting you can or should do anything believing the opposite. It is about what you actually, truly. already believe is or isn’t possible. Snake handlers have demonstrated success and failure with this concept of faith. Don’t test your faith this way. It’s stupid.

Be wise about it. If you decide you will only eat sugar laden chocolate cake and that it will be healthy for you and you will lose weight, it is possible. It may or may not be likely so don’t be surprised if it works or doesn’t. Don’t try to make a sows ear into a silk purse.

If you are surprised it works you didn’t believe it to begin with. If it doesn’t work, you may not have actually believed that it would. You won’t fly believing you can, so don’t walk off a high ledge. That isn’t what this effect is about. Still, it can powerfully assist you.

You Cannot Escape The Power Of Your Thoughts

It can assist you in healing and in accomplishing your goals when you believe you are able to and will. Mindset first and foremost, then everything else can fall in place. Placebo works well together with medicine that works and Nocebo works against the same medicine.

This revolves around one of my favorite, and most powerful, quotes by Henry Ford, ‘If you think you can or you think you can’t you are right.’ What you believe tends to determine how far you will go. If you believe you can, then it is possible, but it isn’t written in stone.

You still have to make it happen. However, if you believe you can’t then you may not even bother to attempt it. Get it? You determine your future by how you think about it. You determine your past and present in the very same manner. What you believe matters!

Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge

Whatever IS, is up to you. This is why I say consider everything a blessing because things can change when you do. Get it? Anything and everything is always up to you! No one else, but you! You determine whether you will make something happen. 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

This Is One Of The Most Powerful Things You Can Do!

“Change is constant. Everything changes. There is ebb and flow. The tide is in the tide is out. Night becomes day, day night. Winter becomes spring. For everything there is a season. Accept what is. Go with the flow. Paddle with the current and travel downstream.

Learn how to accept everything as it is. It’s one of the most profound ways to overcome any challenge in life. Accept what is. Look for the blessing in each moment. Whatever is troubling, know that it, too, will pass. Acceptance, is a state of mind. Manage your attitude.

It is all mindset. Whatever comes our way in life, is part of the process of life. Stop judging and accept unconditionally. Allow it without resistance. Stop fighting and fighting stops. It doesn’t mean giving up. It means letting go. Stop being invested. Allow and accept.

You Go Where Your Thoughts Take You – Be Here Now

Instead of fighting, you are conserving your energy. Energy flows where your attention goes. Instead of fighting, your energy can go into the present moment, easily. You stop creating more problems. You put an end to negativity. You allow yourself to be resourceful.

You are not judging. You are letting go, not giving up. You aren’t apathetic. You are not resigned or weak. You are more powerful because you are going with what life offers in this moment. You are in one accord instead of divided. You feel blessed because you are.

You are patient. You are accepting. You allow nature to take her course. You are tolerant of whatever comes your way. You are not a victim. You are paddling with the current, moving with the stream. You can find learning and discoveries, blessings all along the way. Celebrate it. Celebrate this moment. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stop Seeking Happiness For Happiness

 

“Sadly, people want to be happy. They think if they have another brighter, shinier object it will make them happy. If they get an award or a promotion they will somehow be better and consequently be happier. More of something elusive is what they think will work.

It doesn’t and it won’t. From most all reports through eons of time having more, or accomplishing, much isn’t the base of lasting or true happiness. So, what is if you can’t become happy this way? True happiness comes from a sense of being happiness right now.

Humans become dissatisfied with what they want. The shiny object becomes dull in time and so we want more. We seek something else to fulfill us. This becomes an endless pursuit. It seems we are only happy when we have something new and better to brag about.

You Are Where Your Thoughts Have Brought You

Since these feelings of satisfaction and happiness come and go, is there something one can do that is more permanent or longer lasting? Yes, is the answer. Start living in the present moment and appreciate what you already have. Be happy now. Right now!

Some people complain they don’t know how. That is because they have practiced being happy through accumulation. It is time to practice being happy for who you are and for what you have right now. Recognize the good in your life. Notice and become aware of it.

It is not just things. It is who you are and how you feel. It is the people in your life. It is the circumstances surrounding you. It is the moment right now. It is the beauty of the earth right now, today, that matters. Stop seeking and start being. That makes the difference.

The More We Do The More We Are Capable Of Doing

Stop wanting to be happy and start accepting the now. Look for the good in you and all around you. Discover that blessings abound. Stop putting off for tomorrow what you have today. Stop making your conception of happiness an ideal. It isn’t a thing to have. Get it?

Happiness isn’t some state you enter. Happiness is a process and a choice. You won’t always feel blissful. You don’t have to either. People get screwed up by their definitions of happiness. They miss it because of what they think it means and what it is. It is a thing!

Happiness is not the absence of everything else that isn’t happiness. Happiness is a process. It is a sense of well-being. It is contentment. Happiness is emphasizing the good. Energy flows where your attention goes. Stop pursuing a thing. Be in a process. Be in flow.

Skill Comes From Doing – Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill

The river isn’t static. It is moving, flowing. Life flows and changes. We feel differently from time to time. Happiness is a choice not a thing! It is a decision as to where you place your attention and what you determine to focus on. The goal is to feel the best you are able.

This doesn’t mean you always need to be amped up and a ten on the glee meter. It means you feel a bit better than a moment ago. If you are down and out you do whatever is necessary to feel a bit better. You move yourself in a more positive and optimistic direction.

Drop by drop the tub fills. It needn’t be now or never. All of life is process. Accept it. Tides come and go. Feelings ebb. Allow for changes while steering your boat in the river of life. Go with the current but steer away from the rocks. Navigate and enjoy.

You Get What You Focus On – What You Focus On Expands

The easiest way to be happy is to appreciate the moment. Feel grateful and accentuate the positive. You don’t ignore the negative or problems but you place them safely within context and don’t let them run you. You focus on what is good and delightful. Get it?

You choose to be bigger than any obstacle and you determine to live as a champion. You focus on what you can and will do. You focus on  that, which right now, is good. Fill your mind and being with wonder and awe and delight for what is YOU this moment! Tend to the beauty of the garden even while weeding it. Be happy and you will do and have more happiness. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Money Follows Mindset!

Money follows mindset. Sad but true OR very good news. That means when you get your mindset, your thinking and attitude right then everything else can fall into place. Most people haven’t learned this. I recently answered a person’s question and decided to share it.

Most people are taught or learned that they need money and things first and THEN they will be happy or positive. It is exactly the reverse. When you are positive and happy you are clearer and more resourceful than when stressed. Money comes more easily this way.

The truth is, most all people face the same challenge. That is how to learn to manage thoughts and feelings when things aren’t going well. If you thought about it for a second you’d realize that is the ONLY time you can really learn to manage their thoughts and feelings.

If Everything Were Already Rosy There’d Be No Need To Change

The time to change is right now. If you want things in your life to change, you must change things in your life. If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you have always got. There is never a better moment than right now. You change, things change.

Learn how to take charge of your thoughts and feelings. When you do, the future is yours. You can learn to be, do and have anything you desire. The key is to become it, then you will do the things that bring you what you want to have. Most everyone has this backwards!

The think having things will make them happy. They think if they do things they will have things and then be happier. Nope. You be happy, first and then everything else follows. This is why I write this blog. I write so you and I can learn to manage our thoughts and feelings.

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

This is why I have dedicated 2/3rds of my life to assisting others in making positive changes. If any one person can do it, then you can. Have faith. Start believing in yourself and begin to realize you can transform. Once you start it gets easier and easier.

You begin by imagining a better life.  Believe in yourself to make it happen and then YOU bring it about. Mindset is everything. Your attitude determines your altitude! Fill your mind daily with positive thoughts and create daily positive rituals. This is how it works!

It may take some time but it does work! Persist and you will discover how incredible you already are! Look for everything you already have in your life and feel grateful. Express your gratitude! Keep a journal. Look for the good in life and appreciate it. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why You Need To Take Charge And Direct Your Mind!

“Here is a simple little example for those people who THINK they don’t need to learn how to control their thinking. This is for those who THINK haphazardly, and live as a cork bobbing in the water blown by the wind. This is for those who are victims of thoughts.

What happens when you ask or say to yourself, ‘why am I such an idiot?’ How do you feel? What are your emotions? Do you feel successful, confident or powerful? What is your experience when you or someone asks your that? Bet it doesn’t feel too good, right?

Ask yourself, ‘how come everything sucks?’ or ‘Why does all this bad shit happen to me?’ Do you feel any better asking these questions. How about this? Say to yourself, ‘I never have enough money’ or ‘I am always in debt’ or ‘I don’t know how I’ll make ends meet.’

Your Excuses And Your Blames Hold You Hostage

How do these statements make you feel? How do you feel and think and behave when you say, ‘I feel crappy’ or ‘things suck!’ How marvelous do you feel then? Do you feel on top of the world? Do you feel successful or confident? Do you feel like you can do anything?

Most likely not? What happens when you ask along these lines? ‘In how many different ways am I incredible?’ You may not know the answer yet, or even feel differently yet, but keep asking that. Ask it throughout your day,  before you get up and before you go to bed.

Ask, ‘How quickly and easily can I discover  how delighted I will feel to learn how effortlessly one can succeed?’ Or say ‘I feel incredible!’ Do it with enthusiasm and passion when you say it. Shout it. Loud and booming. ‘I can do anything!’ How do these make you feel.

If You Want Things To Change You Have To Change Some Things

If you don’t notice much difference there’s a good change you have been not thinking this way very much yet. You are conditioned to the other way of thinking. That can all change and you can too. It only means you are conditioned to a certain habit of thought and feeling.

Learn new thought and feeling habits and all of your life can become remarkable! The one set of questions and statements brings up less than glorious feelings. It points you in a negative direction. The other set sends you in a positive direction.

What do you want dog crap or diamonds? Do you want negativity, fear, worry, doubt, depression or positivity, confidence, peace, self-love, and joy? Choose! It is always up to you. It’s a brief example but I hope it helps illustrate the difference. You have to do it to know it!

Whether You Do Or You Don’t Is Completely Up To You

Practice it, long enough thought the days, and weeks and month and you will discover yourself moving in new directions. You’ll be more positive, optimistic and  cheerful. You will make more things happen and be less of a victim. That would be worth it, wouldn’t it?

Learning how to direct your mind in powerful positive ways makes all the difference in how easily and effortlessly you can discover becoming happier, healthier and wealthier. That’s a pretty great benefit in my book, don’t you think?

Imagine if you could go beyond anything that holds you back and begin getting the fabulous results you want instead. If you could do this now, how would you and your life begin to change, in so many wonderful ways?

The Quality Of Your Life Is Determined By Your Decisions 

You can’t even list them all, yet, but you could start enjoying new incredible ways of being? So try it out. Feel the difference when you take charge of your mind. Make it a habit and you will discover new things to enjoy! New opportunities and circumstances will present themselves to you when you master your mindset and attitude. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
