Overcome This Tendency And You Can Create The Future Your Want!

“There is something that holds most people back from accomplishing their goals and dreams. Some people worry, have fears, doubts and limiting beliefs that they succumb to instead of champion over. Something else really limits your chances!

You must change this! ‘Energy flows where attention goes’! Pay attention to this principle. It means be careful where you put your attention. ‘You get what you focus on’. ‘You become what you think about’. So what are most people doing wrong? I’ll tell you.

Most people focus on their present ‘sucky’ reality as if that is all there is. Their attention is on the problems, issues, worries, fears, doubts, and limitations of the present. You need to stop this if you are doing it. Put your focus on what you want. On what you want!

What You Think And Feel And What Manifests Is Always A Match

However, there is a way of doing this that works. Some hope and wish and desire what they want but don’t make it happen because their energy is a reaction against their worries, fears and doubts. They want to escape Texas more than they want to live in California.

When you want to avoid or eliminate more than you want to get or obtain, your internal powers are out of balance. You are getting, creating, attracting or manifesting what you don’t want NOT what you do want. You have to shift focus to what you DO want!

Here is a very important piece. While it is all serious  business you can’t take it seriously. You want to have fun, delight, be enthusiastic, filled with joy, peace, love and good will. The lighter you are, the better you feel, the more joy and positive energy, the easier it is.

Hold The Vision – Trust The Process – You Get What You Focus On

That is why happiness and success are not destinations BUT the journey! Here is another very important piece I remind you of again and again. Be as a little child. Be open, filled with wonder, awe and curiosity. Have fun, play. PLAY for goodness sakes, is a key! PLAY!

Pretend you already have everything you want. You are already the person you desire to be. You are doing the very thing you have always wanted to do. Pretend fully. Think the thoughts you’d think if you’d already arrived in California. You already got your goals.

How would you feel? What would you see, hear, think, feel, experience, taste, and smell differently? What would you be doing? Where would you be? What would those close to you be saying to you and about you? Who would you be surrounded by? How is life?

You Are A Manifestation Of Your Fantasy – Think Positively

What kind of money would you be making? Where would you be living? What would you be driving? How would you spend your time? Pretend you know all of it and pretend it already has happened. Feel the incredibly wonderful feelings and thoughts you’d be thinking.

Play and have fun. Delight in this. Spend more time feeling your future already has having happened than you do the current reality. You are where your thoughts have brought you. You will be where your thoughts take you. Energy flows where attention goes!

Get over living in a ‘sucky’ reality being concerned with what you don’t want. And start imagining the reality you do want as if you already have it. Overcome the tendency to remain stuck in the present. Focus on what you want to get. Play with it. Have fun!

What You Feel You Attract – What You Think You Become

Take it lightly. Enjoy the process. Be happy and thrilled. Be grateful for all. Express your thrills and delights. Notice the small things that excite you. Become a little child and be fascinated. If you are too serious and work too hard you actually push things away. Invite it all!

You invite when you become inviting. Be friendly, be fun, be passionate. Enjoy the process. Count the small wins along the way. Keep the faith and really pretend as a little child pretends. Visualize and imagine specifically what that future is like and feel it right now. Make it a blast. Expect good things to happen. Be positive. Become an optimist. Celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

If You Aren’t Doing This Right Now You Won’t Live The Future Of Your Dreams!

“How do you experience more abundance right now? How do you overcome the limitations of your own thinking and feeling? How do you take action when you don’t feel inspired? What can you do to create and make the future, you want to have,  a reality?

Neville Goddard, and others, suggest that you feel the feelings now of your wish fulfilled. What would it feel like to right now get the goal or dream you desire? You get the job, the partner, the money, the home, the car that you have wanted; what does that feel like?

If you got it today how would you feel? How DOES it feel? This is where you must spend time in your visualization. Spend time each day feeling and living the joys of having received it already. It isn’t far off in the future, it is immediate. It is right now. Practice this!

You Are Already That Which You Want To Be

Some claim that is hard but you are already doing it. What? You say, ‘I am not. I have tried but can’t make it seem real.’ Okay, well try this on. I bet when the bills are due or when there is trouble you feel as if the bill collector already repossessed your car or home. You feel bad.

Am I right or right? You feel bad now. Most people live their worst fears over and over instead of living their best dreams over and over. I consider that poor taste and a major waste of time. In order to get what we want we must focus on what we actually do want to have.

Stop living the defeats, the worries and the problems, and feeling bad in advance of the situations. Stop it. Put an end to it. Commit to changing this. Switch from feeling bad about what you don’t want to feeling good about what you do want. Imagine you already have it!

Everything That Appears Without Was First An Inner Image

Start living fully in the good you desire. Feel good right now!  Feel happy right now. Feel fulfilled right now. Feel gratitude right now. When you do, you get back more of the good! It is time to stop getting more of the bad and get more of the good you really want.

Don’t you think? Whatever you hold in your mind expands. What you focus on you attract. If you are worried about problems and debts you get more. It seems endless. It is! When you start feeling abundant, really feeling it, you begin to create abundance. Get it?

It isn’t magical. It is your brain at work. You are doing it. You change your mental focus and your feelings change. You start feeling more like doing the things that get the results you want. You are doing it. When you feel you are on top of the world you attract good too!

Believe That You Already Are That Which You Want To Be

You are more attractive to the kind of people who can help you. Your mind is open to finding good all around. You notice opportunities because you aren’t caught up in worry. You maximize yourself, so naturally you maximize the likelihood of good things happening.

Begin right now! Decide to feel good. If you don’t know what to do, look around you for anything large or small you can be grateful for. Focus on that. Discover how many things are in your life right now you can appreciate.  Find those things you usually take for granted.

Start by being grateful. Make a list. Feel the gratitude. Enjoy the process. Have fun. You transform your thoughts from lack and negativity to abundance and positivity. You shape your present moments and your future. Take charge and make good things happen. Delight. Wrap yourself in the feelings of having already obtained the good you desire. Enjoy and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Eliminate Unwanted Behaviors Now Using These Tips!

“You want to change but have not been able to. You’d like to stop whatever holds you back and move forward powerfully. You want to get better at particular skills and improve what you do. Continue to read on and learn how you can increase these abilities right now.

In order to change we need to replace the non-supportive habits we have grown up with. We need to replace the limited thinking and mental conditioning we adopted and grew up being influenced by. We need to practice new positive thoughts and feelings.

We need to develop positive new supportive habits to take their place.  We do this by practice. We do this by rehearsing the new thoughts, feelings and behaviors as we do any skill. Practice a little bit each day makes a world of difference. Athletes know this.

Practice Is The Difference Between Ordinary And Extraordinary

To get good at anything you must schedule time for it.  Through correct practice and  repetition for a long enough duration we create the neural pathways that are necessary to make these new habits. It is better to do a little bit daily than a lot once or twice a week.

We create new supportive thought, feeling and behavioral habits that then become automatic and reliable and replace the old ones. This is how we change. This is why we must persist. I have shared this with you for many years prior to, and within, these blogs.

Click Here To Watch This Must See Brief TedTalk Video On Practice

Hope you enjoyed this video. I hope it helped you understand why we need to dedicate ourselves to our own personal transformation. Correct practice works.  Practice those things that count. Create positive thought habits, feeling habits and behaviors. Practice!

Practice Gratitude. Practice feeling blessed. Practice feeling the good you desire as already having occurred. Practice visualizing and affirmations. You get better and better as you do. You can develop incredibly powerful positive habits. Begin today! Celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

Transform Yourself Into Someone People Want To Do Nice Things For


“So why all this discussion on SD, overcoming fears and swapping positive emotions and habit formation? Because it means you really can learn to do anything you want. You can learn to become a better communicator and get people to do what you want them to do.

You can transform yourself from someone who may not be very effective into someone of great influence and benevolent power. You can make yourself listen better, pay attention, be respectful, go the extra mile, take action, do unto others, and get back in return.

You can become a selfless enlightened giver or a greedy son of a bitch. It is always your choice. If you already are an enlightened giver you can still go beyond anything you presently know. If you are a greedy SOB you can change that right away to get better results.

It Costs You Absolutely Nothing To Be Nice – Go That Extra Mile

You can eliminate fears, doubts, bad habits and anything that holds you back. You can learn new powerful thoughts and beliefs, value important new values, feel incredible, chose your feelings and learn to take action. You can behave as you prefer to. It is in your power.

You can systematically expose yourself to new thoughts, beliefs and ideas. You can bit by bit daily condition yourself in small increments to take new positive, productive actions, think new thoughts, feel new feelings by repeated daily correct practice.  Keep this in mind.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice. You use the very same process, procedure, mechanism that created your original beliefs, feelings and actions to create the new ones you now chose. That is the difference. The first ones you learned by exposure.

If You Met Yourself Would You Want To Be Friends With You

You didn’t have a say. You were too young and didn’t know you had choices. Now you know. Now you can choose to be whoever you want to be. Now you can choose to make your present and future whatever you want to make it. You practice being the you you want.

You make the new you a habit. This is friggin’ awesome, don’t you think? Sure it takes some dedication. It can also be wildly fun and adventurous. As you see the changes and your gains you can feel thrilled! You can and will make progress. YOU transform yourself.

Repeatedly expose your mind and being to the very best thoughts, feelings, actions, habits, people, reading and listening material, events and circumstances and you and your life will change for the best. Manifest what you want by diving into what you want more of.

Develop Positive Supportive Habits Through Correct Practice

It works! It works! It works! Practice! Practice! Practice. Develop new habits that support you in being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and having what you want. Eliminate the chronic habitual thoughts, feelings and behavior that held you back.

If you want your life to change you must change some things in your life. Become a person who can easily appeal to others, engage their interest, rivet their attention. Transform yourself into the person others naturally want to do nice things for. Become extra likable!

Practice gratitude for everything. Where you are at, where  you have been, and where you are going. Appreciate all your experiences and lessons. Be thankful for all the people in your life easy to get along with and challenging; those close to you and those strangers. Be thankful. Delight and celebrate everything!”

Delight fully today!

What Victor Hugo Knew And Why It Is Important For You!


“Do you plan your day or do you just let it unfold? Some people prepare and make lists. Others wait to see what happens. There is good reason to make plans for your day. Just as you make plans for travel you want to make plans for each day. Check out this quote.

‘He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life.  But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.’  Victor Hugo

Set intentions for your day. Commit to making those happen. Each day there is something you can do that will make you feel good. Perhaps, it is making your bed, clearing the dishes, taking the dog out. Some domestic task you can determine to get done and do it.

Our Intentions Create Our Reality – Set Intentions – Keep Them

You also have professional or job related intentions you can set. Make that sales call, keep that appointment, turn in your reports, get your deadline work done on time. Whatever it is you can set the intention and carry it out. Each day do a task you can be proud of.

There are mental mindset intentions you can set and keep. Resolve to repeat your affirmations 2x a day. Or choose to do it a 3 or 5x. Resolve to stay positive; look on the bright side of a troublesome situation. Commit to inspirational reading for 20 minutes.

Health intentions. Make it a point to eat healthy. No processed food. Commit to walking for 20 minutes 2x a day or 1 hour. Commit to reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke by 1. Commit to exercises for 5 minutes. Commit to drinking more pure water.

Live Less From Old Habits And More From New Intended Habits

Relationship intentions you can set include saying I love you and looking into the eyes of your family members or partner. Doing something special the other person wants. Calling a friend. Helping a co-worker. Smiling and nicely treating a stranger or someone elderly.

Financial intentions include paying yourself first when you get your paycheck Put 20% aside for yourself. Stop buying expensive coffee. Save that money and invest it later. Begin to learn to manage your money. Investigate investments. Donate to a worthy cause.

There is always something small you can do in the different areas of your life. Take a look and find small things you can do daily. Make these habits by repeating them for 90 days. SMALL THINGS you will do consistently for long enough to become habit. Then switch.

Everything That Happens Begins With An Intention – Notice This

At the end of the day celebrate what you did. Make a big deal about it no matter how small or insignificant the task seems to be. What is important is you planned to do it. You decided and committed. You kept your commitment. You did it! Be grateful and celebrate!

When it comes to weekly, monthly, yearly goals or your big giant dream you can work in a similar manner. Set an intention for making some aspect of it happen. Complete a portion of what is needed each day. Even a small bit is better than no bit. Inch your way forward.

As long as you are progressing toward creating what you want by taking actual action steps you are doing it. You are in the process of manifesting your dreams and creating your future. You are taking charge. You don’t have to try to do everything at once. Bit by bit.

Another Name For Intention Is Decision Decide To Do It And Do It

As you grow accustomed to doing and successfully completing what you commit to you might add some more. You’ll know when it’s right. Never bite off more than you can chew. Keep it interesting and stretch yourself a bit. Stay a bit hungry. Don’t be too comfortable.

Lastly, make a commitment to write down 25 things you feel grateful for in the different areas of your life. Promise to look for what is good and new. Feel really thankful for what you already have. Intend to focus on appreciation at least 3x during the day. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Discover how incredible you are today!

How To Use This Acting Tool To Get Everything You Want In Life


“I am an actor. I love to pretend. I can pretend anything and master it. That is what acting is all about. Acting as if your character and the story is real. Being believable by believing it. Thinking the thoughts the character is thinking. I love being an actor. I love pretending.

‘Act As If’ it is real  – is a tool for creation. Imagine the good you desire as though you already are in possession of it. Visualize yourself  already as the person you wish to become. Pretend it! When you do you ‘trick’ the brain. It doesn’t know the difference.

Doing this aligns your inner resources. It helps realize your desires to make them crystal clear. You infuse your dreams with energy, passion and enthusiasm. You rehearse living your desires right now. You enact, what it IS like, by acting what it will be like right now!

To Enjoy Success One Must Travel In Advance Of The World

You think, feel and act as you would think, feel and act when you have what you want. You train your brain and your entire being to accept that this IS who you are and what you have. You live from power and ownership of the good you desire instead of hoping for it.

Use pretending, use ‘act as if’, to give yourself the edge to make your dreams come true. Athletes know the advantage visualization and mental rehearsal gives them, at the micro-muscle level, to improve their performance. Many testify to this incredible power.

Use it. Prepare your mind and your being to accept what you want to have. Living from having it, from being there, helps you clear blocks and limitations. It helps you to plan and know what action steps to take to get your goal. You prepare the soil for the seeds to grow.

To Know And Not To Do Is To Not Actually Know – Apply It

You can read all about it but unless you do it, you won’t know it. Application is the proper fruit of knowledge. You must do it to know the benefit of doing it. Don’t delay. Begin today. Be grateful for all you have now and will have. Practice gratitude because that further helps unlock the floodgates. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Notice all the good things about your life today and enjoy!

When You Don’t Feel Like It: Do This

Horizons sunrisen-phil-koch

“Expectations can be a blessing and a curse. We should expect the best of ourselves and others and be realistic at the same time. Fear and worry about the future doesn’t support us at all. It is negative rehearsal. It is negative affirmations and negative planning.

While we should expect the best we should also be practical and realistic about it. We can dream fantastically big and not accomplish anything or we can dream fantastically big and take steps to bring it about. We do need to place our attention on what does work.

It has been said there is no such thing as unrealistic expectations only unrealistic time frames. Given the right amount of time we may be able to accomplish anything. Anything is possible. Everything may be possible. Dream big and then step by step. Focus on the first step.

Positive Thoughts Generate Positive Feelings

Proceed forward picking up your goals as you climb each rung of a ladder to get to the top. Keep the large end goal in mind while you succeed in picking up each smaller goal in succession. Work your plan. Your plan need not be perfect, you can always adjust it. BUT…

You still need a plan to get from where you are to where you want to go. You need a road map that you use as you journey. Without a plan or road map you drift. You may find that you must detour along the way but that is all part of the journeying process. It’s okay!

Moving forward is simple. It may not always be easy but it is simple. It can be easy too. We shouldn’t think that it is not. It can be very easy. Regardless, it is simple to move forward step by step. Anything can be accomplished when broken into tinier bits or steps.

Positive Thoughts And Feelings Generate Positive Life Experiences

You can manage it. Want to clean your house? It seems too big a task. Either set a small amount of time to straighten up, say 20 minutes, and do that daily. It takes longer but if you do it repeatedly, consistently for long enough you will get the house clean. Or…

Pick one room at a time, if that works better for you, and clean each room using the same principle. Motivation comes from doing not from waiting to be motivated. This is where our feelings often don’t serve us. We wait to feel like it. That won’t help you when you don’t.

For some it has to get bad enough and then they feel like it. They feel pressured that they must then do it. Some wait until deadline pressures cause them enough pain. Then they act. This manner of doing things works but it isn’t very pleasurable. Your choice.

You Can Choose Your Thoughts And You Can Change Your Life

My main premise is very simple. Whatever one thinks that stops them needs to be examined and managed. Go beyond what stops and into new ways of being. Our thoughts, feelings, behaviors and habits should support us. We should control and dictate them.

Manage your thinking and feeling and you take charge of your behaviors and habits. You get better results because you take control of your life. You may have to train yourself to do it, we all do, but then train yourself. Train as a champion does. Make it happen!

Be rigorous and dedicated to bringing about the positive changes you desire. Don’t slack off. Be committed. A champion knows that to win gold tomorrow they must keep training today. They train even when they don’t feel like it. They control their thinking and feelings.

Every Thought We Think Is Creating Our Future

Look for the good in all. Find the silver lining. Manage and control your thinking. There is only one point in all of this:  make your life incredible. Be in charge of your life. Take the initiative. Don’t be a victim. Be a victor instead. Live like you mean it. Live your dreams.

Do little things that bring about change. Go for a walk. Skip or dance and move. Smile more, laugh out loud for a good five minutes. Get a massage. Meditate. Gift yourself in doing something fun. Plant a garden. Do little things that feel good and inspire you. Enjoy each.

Live fully and be grateful for all and you can have the life you want most. It is simple. Don’t let whatever stops you, stop you. Learn to stop, stopping yourself. Learn to move forward progressively and enjoy every single step. Enjoy and delight in all of it.

Success Is Achieved By Those Who Keep Trying With A PMA

The journey can be fun or frustrating. You determine how it will be. You respond to what life throws your way. You can respond well or not so well. It is completely up to you. Many people want big change real fast and are disappointed and give up when it doesn’t occur.

It can happen quickly or it can take time. Sometimes, some people transform instantly, sometimes it is gradual. When it is gradual enjoy it. You and life get better bit by bit. That can be an incredibly joyful process if you allow for it. Focus on what you want and delight.

Delight in bringing it about along the way. Enjoy each moment. Even the rough ones. Get past your stopping or stuck points and your limited thoughts and feelings and move into new powerful dimensions of being. Become invincible and unstoppable and positive! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Enjoy each moment. Become fascinated!
