Positive Thinking Is A Scam Don’t Believe It!

“In order to get really good at anything we must practice the right things, consistently, long enough. Not only practice but practice correctly. Because, we can practice wrong, and develop bad habits. Frequently, coaches have to correct, learned, bad habits in sports.

It is important to get proper, qualified, coaching right from the start. It is important to practice, correctly, right from the start. Given that, what else can one do to learn and grow positively, more easily and quickly? Practice maintaining a positive attitude in all things!

A positive attitude does not mean ignoring the negative. It means using the negative to get to the positive. When a negative thought occurs shift to the positive. If you think something you don’t want, or feel bad, once you become aware, change it, to what you do want.

Whether You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You Are Right

Positive thinking means you take into account contingencies, so that you have plans, in case things don’t go the way you want. It is not airy fairy ‘I can walk on water’ or ‘I can fly’ mentality. It is, ‘I could learn how to do these things with the right know how and equipment.’

It is knowing how to pursue your goals and dreams and remaining faithful to them, when the going gets tough. It is learning and knowing that you can get through the tough times by emphasizing your resources and putting them into action. It is thinking right.

It is feeling right. It is doing the right things. Negative thinking doesn’t do this. Correct, positive thinking does. It is not sitting in your room thinking ‘breakfast will appear’ or that the food in the fridge will somehow cook itself. It is doing it yourself. It is action.

Negative Thoughts Hold You Back – Nothing Else Holds You Back

It is doing it with the right attitude. Many people are mistaken about positive thinking. I see articles and videos bad rapping it because they misunderstand what it is and the purpose of it. They miss out. Positive thinking IS one of the most powerful things you can do!

Don’t miss out. Correctly practice! Don’t believe the positive thinking is a scam people. Believe in yourself! Go back and read through my blog posts. Study them. Apply the principles and practices and you will powerfully transform your life! You will.

If you apply them correctly you can learn to be, do and have almost anything you want. You will learn how to make things happen. Then it is all up to you. Positive thinking means becoming smarter and wiser. It means being dedicated or committed. It means persistence.

Replace Negative Thoughts With Positive And Get Positive Results

The best way to practice is to have fun. Be dedicated. Keep an open mind. Be intense, yet, work at it in a relaxed, positive, energetic way. Passion and optimism make a big difference. Pursue passionately. Bring positive energy and high vibration to everything you do.

Your life changes when you feel incredible. Delight and enjoy! Practice feeling your best. Transform less than glorious thoughts and feelings into better and more glorious ones. Practice gratitude and expressing it. Practicing always speaking positively about yourself, your life, events and others. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How You Can Get Good At Anything

“Do you have to be born talented or can you develop it? How do you get good at acting? How about golf, swimming, juggling or cooking? How do you get good at anything? What is it that you must do to become the best? How does one master their skills? Here is how.

Remember the famous question, ‘how do you get to Carnegie Hall?’ The answer, ‘practice, practice, practice.’ You can develop or learn any new habit through correct repetition, consistently, over a long enough period of time. You aren’t born with it but you develop it.

Any skill! Mental, emotional, or physical can be wired in at the neurological level through this method. You can replace any old, non-supportive habit with a new positive supportive habit by conditioning yourself this way.

Any Skill You Wish To Learn And Master You Can If You Practice

Mastery may differ from person to person, but you can become your personal best, if you are willing to do what it takes. Think about it. And yes, that too is the answer. Mindset first! Get your thoughts right, feelings will follow and then your actions leading to results.

The more you practice the better you become. The same is true about creating and attracting. Practice creating. Practice believing. Practice making things happen and you get better at it. Start small and build up, as you would with any skill. Think about this!

It is true AND it is up to you! Do it and you will get better. Begin now. Don’t wait. Practice gratitude! Practice feeling marvelous! Practice expressing it. Practice communicating well with others. Practice supporting others and letting them support you. Practice solving problems. Practice unconditional love and acceptance. Practice celebrating everything!” Rex Sikes

It is a new day. Yes, act like it!

The Biggest Mistake You Can Make Holds You Back From What You Want!

 

“Why do people toil so hard to get ahead but not see any results? What is they do, or don’t do, that makes it nearly impossible to succeed, even when they totally want to? What is it? Can one change it? What determines whether we succeed or not?

The major cause for difficulty is where you place your attention! Energy flows where attention goes. Keep that in mind while consider this: power either resides within you or comes from outside you. Whatever you believe determines your lot.

You either believe you are in control or something else in control. It is a matter of belief. It is whatever you think it is! Our beliefs create our perceptions and reality. It is as we think it is. If you don’t believe you are in charge of everything then something else is! It’s simple.

You Are The Power – You Are The Author Of Your Life – Act Like It

If YOU are in charge, then there is always something you can do to alter the situations in your favor. You are not a cork bobbing in the water, driven by the wind and current. You operate of own volition. You are ‘at cause’ not ‘at effect’ in your life. You’re the power source.

Mindset makes an incredible difference in everything you do. People suffer because of where they place control. If anything else is in charge, we are subject to that. Get it? Regardless, of what the ‘actuality’ is, our reality is determined by what we think it is.

Your beliefs and thoughts determine how far you go. Your mindset and attitude determine how much, or how little, influence you have in making your life what you want it to be. You either are in complete charge or you are not. You choose. You must decide. Which is it?

Within You Is The Power To Rise Above Any Situation Or Struggle

Power either comes from within you or from outside you. Frankly, you already made the decision while growing up. You made that decision and you live from it. If that decision doesn’t support you, and serve you, you can change it. That is the good news!

When you take responsibility for everything that happens, whether this notion is true or not, it puts you in a place of power. You make changes. You don’t sit and wait. You create. You determine what the events and circumstances mean. You become the cause.

As the cause, if you don’t like the meaning, you can reframe it. If you don’t like the results you can change them. You can think differently. You can change your m ind. You can feel and act differently. You create different results. You determine where you go and how far.

At Any Time You Can Declare This Is Not How My Story Ends

There are NO limitations except the ones, we THINK there are. Limitation exists only in our thoughts. What are you thinking right now? That will determine many things for you? Either you believe you can or you believe you can’t. Either way, you are correct.

In order to determine whether you, or someone else, is in charge simply listen to where you place authority. Do you blame the weather, the traffic, the people around you, the economy, and all sources outside yourself for what occurs, or do you accept it?

If you say, ‘sorry I am late because I didn’t get up on time’ at least you aren’t saying, ‘I was heading there but traffic was heavy and made me late’. Even if there was heavy traffic, it is up to you to get there on time. YOU are responsible for any delays, not the traffic. Get it?

You Must Learn You Have Always Had The Power – Now Accept It

Most people don’t want to, nor will they take, this kind of responsibility. They want to put it onto other things because this is how most of us were brought up. We learned it from others. That is okay. Now, is the time to change it! Now, is the time to take charge.

Get it? Power doesn’t reside outside of you, unless you are willing to give it all away. Yes, we WERE raised to give most of our power away. We no longer have to! Change your thinking and you can change your life. Accept 100% responsibility for everything and transform.

The moment you do, everything can change. You already have everything you need to transform your life in incredible ways, but most will continue to miss out. Stop! Don’t. Take charge today! When you do new horizons will open. Be glad you can. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

To Stop Losing And Start Winning You Must Do This

“Our social conditioning contributes to our mindset. Sadly, not much of our co-opted conditioning, that which happens to us from birth through childhood, is profoundly useful for helping us to recognize the powerful creators we are. It seems to be designed so we miss it.

We applaud the notion, ‘the buck stops here’, but few embrace and live from that notion. Instead of taking 100% responsibility for ourselves, we place responsibility, for our success or failure, on others, our upbringing, outer events and circumstances.

This is insidious! We blame our parents, our education, our friends, our enemies, our lovers, luck, the government, the economy, foreign powers, terrorists, the weather, the traffic, our pets, the media, you name it. We blame ourselves, too. We blame everything. Everything!

Learn To Separate What You Feel From What Is Happening

We are conditioned to do so. We learn from our parents, teachers, peers, churches and synagogues, media and others. Changing ourselves and becoming successful means we have to change where we place the responsibility. We have to assume it! Aim inward!

We are 100% responsible for everything that happens to us. Good or bad, right or wrong, accept the responsibility. We alone are accountable. We create our reality 100%.  Our responses determine our outcomes. No one else, no other agency is responsible. We are.

 Accepting total responsibility separates the survivor from the overcomer; the victim from the victor. When one takes responsibility for everything, one takes control and puts oneself in the driver’s seat. That person determines how the ride will go.

Learn To Act In Spite Of Your Mood – Always Give 100 %

Regardless of the outer terrain, or the weather, that person determines how they enjoy it, and where they travel. If they must take detours, so be it. They don’t whine and complain, make excuses or blame. They adjust and continue. They find or create a way.

This is the mindset for making life wonderful. Nothing will change until you do. Accept this! Change your conditioned thinking from limited to unlimited. Opportunity can be all around you but unless you notice and act on it, you will miss out. You must do it!

Many people think luck, or god or the universe, or attraction is doing it to or for them. Sadly, most don’t experience the abundant life they could. They live like a cork bobbing in the water, going where the current takes it. The power to change is YOU. Most don’t realize this.

Keep Your Commitments – Live Deliberately – Make It Happen

They don’t assume their power because they live from the old, limiting, conditioned beliefs that other forces are more powerful than they are. Those who get ahead, unconsciously break through, or they work very hard to do so. They change their thinking.

You want to win? Develop a winning attitude. Change your mindset. Become a champion in your thoughts and feelings. The right mindset will lead you to the right, inspired actions so you start getting better results. You determine your success and happiness in life.

You determine the exact amount of your financial well-being. You are the author and creator of your life whether you realize it, and act like it, or not. You are doing it! No one else. Yes, I know. You might think others are. That IS the issue. The issue is always your mindset.

Paradise Is A State Of Mind – You Determine Where You Live

The issue is always the thoughts and beliefs you have that govern what you will and won’t do. To make everlasting, positive change, you must change some things. Mindset is the first thing you need to master. You won’t win with a loser attitude. Get it? Change it!

Start changing your thinking for the better. Take charge! Overcome your prior conditioning. Recondition yourself. Get yourself in great mental shape. Become a warrior in mind and spirit. Become a peaceful warrior. Your life will transform incredibly when you do. Love, laugh, learn, live fully and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!

Are You Failing Because You Are Distracted? Yes!

“My recent blogs were devoted to two concepts; why you fail and is media, and more, distracting you from your goals and dreams? There are many factors that usurp your power. If you aren’t able to realize the power you have, you may never maximize your potential.

The distractions, those deliberately imposed, and those that simply arise in daily living, compete for your attention. They rob you of focus. They lead you astray when you succumb to them. Your thoughts become diluted so the results you get are weakened.

If you are distracted, you may never realize your true self and what you are capable of achieving. Because you are ‘caught up’ you miss out. Napoleon Hill called it ‘drifting’, as a cork bobs along in the current. There is no power in drifting. Power is in your focus.

Everything Is Energy – Your Thoughts Begin It …

Power is in your decisions and determination. Power is in managing your thoughts, feelings, and actions. If anything can distract you, it will lead you away from what is most important. If it can take you away from pursuing your goals and dreams, it will. You lose out.

That is why, social networking, popular books, movies, music, gossip, bad news, is dangerous. It takes you out of the game. Your focus isn’t on who  you can become, and what you can accomplish, it’s caught up in the bad news and banter on your feed. Focus is everything!

Energy flows where your attention goes. What you focus on expands. You become what you think about most frequently. I’m not saying there isn’t room for entertainment or frivolity that makes you feel good. There is plenty of room for it. It’s how much time is spent?

… Your Emotions Amplify It – Your Actions Increase Its Momentum

If most of your time is caught up in media distraction, daily distractions, traffic and nuisances in work and home life, then less time is spent focused on what you want. If you get what you focus on,  how will you get what you want, if you’re not focused on it?

You have to control what you pay attention to. That is why it is important to read and listen to material that inspires and motivates you to continue your pursuit, daily. It is why you need to hang out with positive like minded people who are making things happen.

It is the reason you attend seminars and events and invest in yourself. All of these help you to stay focused on your goals and dreams, and expand your imagination to include more good things. Spend more time on what is important, and less time on what isn’t.

Take Back Your Attention – Energy – Time And Emotions 

Affirm and visualize. Enjoy making your world what you want it to be. Contribute to others positively, and allow them to contribute to you. That is much better for you than the latest bad news or gossip. The goal, of the powers that be, is that you spend money trying.

If you become what you want to be, you live life on your terms. You have choice and power. You can opt in or opt out. If you are always struggling you are spending your time, energy and money to become. If you never become you keep struggling. Get it? It’s a cycle.

Put an end to the distractions. You get nowhere drifting and being wishy washy. Focus! Focus yourself. Become a laser beam and enjoy the process. Find the people, things, and circumstances you are grateful for and focus on these, instead. You’ll get more bang for this buck than discussing headlines. Get it? Practice gratitude. Live fully. Delight in life. Manage your thoughts and your feelings and actions and results will align. FOCUS! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

If You’re Like Most People You Say You Are But You Probably Aren’t

“Most people will make this claim, yet, most people are not what they claim. They say they are, but they aren’t. This is the reason they don’t change, nor do they get what they want. In order to have the life you want to have, certain things are necessary.

You must do this! What is it? You must have a true willingness to change. Yup, people claim they are willing. They say they want changes. They want it different. When it comes right down to it they really aren’t willing to do whatever it takes to make it so?

Many are mostly unwilling. What about you? If you want things in your life to change you ACTUALLY have to change things in your life! What would you give up? What would you trade in exchange? Would you go a year without Facebook? Would you give up television?

If You Are Not Willing To Change – Don’t Expect Your Life To

What are you willing to do, to sacrifice, if you had to, to get the life of your dreams? What will you do to make you big goals and dreams a reality? Most people won’t do much when it comes right down to it. They are comfortable as it is, even while they complain about it!

It boils down to habit. What habits do you have that keep you the same? Most people don’t change their habits because they think it too hard. They try, but give up. Some succeed. You actually can! To succeed you need to put some skin in the game. Are you willing?

What do you need to do in order to get what you want most? The number one thing most people need to start with is to change their thinking? People need to develop the mindset that they can and will do anything positive to bring about good results they desire.

You Have To Be Willing To Leave Your Comfort Zone

They need to take responsibility for everything in their life. Why? Because once you take responsibility for everything it puts you in charge. If you created a mess, or something you don’t like, you can create what you want, too. You are doing it. No one else is.

That mindset helps you make the changes necessary to develop new habits. If I said, you can have the lifestyle you want, but it will cost you X, many people would say, ‘wow that is too much!’ The cost could be a money investment or giving up golfing on weekends.

Not forever, but until you have what you want. What do you continue to allow that gets in your way? When will you stop it from being a distraction? How soon will you decide you are willing to change and do whatever necessary to stop losing and start winning?

Stop Complaining About Things You Aren’t Willing To Change

A willingness to change means you are willing and you actually take charge and change things. If you change nothing, you get nothing. Still, this is what most do. They continue doing the same things, hoping it will be different. That IS the definition of insanity. It is!

Develop a positive mindset. Napoleon Hill called it THINK and grow rich. It truly is mostly a mental game. When your thinking is right on, your actions will be too. It isn’t about working harder, yet that is what most people think it’s about. Work smarter not harder!

Until you are truly willing to change your life will mostly remain the same. You have to leave your comfort zone and stretch yourself in new and different ways to make headway. This means you must develop new thinking, feeling and doing habits. Are you ready?

You Will Never Change Anything You Are Willing To Tolerate

If so begin. Begin assuming responsibility for everything in your life. No joke. You created it all. That is the mindset. Now begin creating what you want. Fill your mind each day with positive thoughts. Read, listen to positive material. Repeat affirmations. Visualize. Have fun.

Make it a point to enjoy what you already have, whether you have little or lots. BE grateful. Express your appreciation. This is really, the secret. It is all an energy game! When you are vibrating right, exuding the right energy, you are in the zone. It is about energy!

You make things happen when you are positive. When you are delighting and enjoying all of life you are closest to making all your dreams come true. Live in appreciation. Be grateful. What you think about you become. What you focus on expands. Delight in it all and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!

Experts Reveal: The Determining Factor Between Being Rich Or Poor

“What do successful or rich people do that gives them the edge? Most people, who are not successful and rich, don’t do this? That’s why there’s a difference between who succeeds and who doesn’t. There is a difference between the wealthy and those who aren’t.

Yup, it is mindset or attitude. It is the expectation the successful, or rich person has, that those who aren’t, do not have. Rich people expect to succeed. That’s it! It is that simple! Successful people expect to continue to succeed.  The believe in themselves!

They have confidence in their talents and abilities. They believe they can always find or create a way to have what they want. They know they can make it happen. They trust their ingenuity and creativity. They feel it with every fiber of their being. They FEEL it first!

Focus On Being A Blessing And You Will Always Be Blessed

It is the feeling and the mindset, the expectation or certainty, that they will be successful, that makes the difference. They take 100% responsibility for creating their future. They determine what they want and decide to go for it. They know THEY make it happen.

They are open and receptive to insights coming from anywhere. They trust their gut or intuition. They are receptive to unexpected good happening for them, because they know it will. They know! No matter how difficult the road, they will get there. They believe!

You can too. The rule is, if you want it, you have to go get it. You have to go first. You create it and make it happen. Your mindset is more important than your actions because your right mindset directs your actions. Hence, you work smarter not harder. Get it? You do it.

There Is Always Something Good Coming Soon – Remember This

You adjust and continue. You keep the faith. Open yourself up to some unexpected good. Be willing to be blessed beyond belief. Allow yourself to ‘act as if’ you already have all you desire and express how good that feels. Express your gratitude and you will create more good. Do it! Delight in all. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

ENJOY!
