How To Make Changes You Haven’t Been Getting PT 2

“Have you wondered why I have this as a lead picture? Why a field with a bale of hay? What does this farm image have to do with you, your career, your success and happiness? What do you suppose Rex might be getting at? It is important; the picture and the point.

I’ll get to that reason in a moment, but first, realize you are energy. Every thing is energy and everything vibrates. You vibrate your thoughts and feelings.  Current research indicates your heart vibrates and transmits 1000s of times stronger than your brain.

Tens of thousands of times stronger than thoughts, are your feelings. You can research into this area of ‘heart coherence’. What does this mean? It means you vibrate a feeling. What you are feeling most often in your life is what you are radiating, transmitting, creating.

You Will Always Be Out Of Your Comfort Zone If You Are Growing

What you feel is what you attract. How do you feel most of the time? Are you frustrated, are you okay, or are you enthused and joyful? It actually matters! You create who and what you are over, what you want. You create and attract what you feel most frequently.

This is one reason it is important to feel your best. Even if you feel crummy, move towards feeling a little bit better. It also dictates how we create and attract what we want. If you want a brand new car, thinking of the car is not what gets you the car. The car isn’t it.

It is the feeling you will have of getting the car. Why do you want it? How will you feel to get it? What does it feel like to own and drive it? Get it? It is the feeling of already having the car that gets you the car.  You make it happen. Feelings are the driver! Feelings matter!

Stay Positive – Be Strong – Feel Your Best – You Can Do It – Do It

Feelings come from the thoughts, the images and beliefs you repeatedly think. If you think a bad thought you feel bad. Because you feel bad your next thought is negative. It is a loop, spiraling downward. You can spiral upward, too. That’s what you want to do!

Positive or negative feelings drive your actions and inaction. When you are feeling top of the world, on your game, vibrating high, you generate inspired actions. These feelings inform the brain’s Reticular Activating System (RAS) to be alerted to opportunity.

If you are focused on the car, and having the feelings of already having it, your RAS alerts you to opportunities to make getting the car happen. It works this way. Feel great and great things happen. Feel less than great and less than great things happen. Get it?

Energy Goes Where Attention Goes – Feel Your Very Best

You are responsible for what you get, or don’t. If you aren’t getting what you want, then you must make some changes in order to create what you want. It is completely up to you! Stop blaming and accusing, making excuses and complaining, and start feeling better.

Think, feel and act better. NOW the picture. The bale of hay, those bales of hay, didn’t attract themselves magically into the shape they are. Someone did the work. Someone made it happen. Whether the person enjoyed it or not, a human did it, by hand or machine.

You must take charge and be in charge to get what you want in life. Don’t wish it or expect others to do it for you. YOU do it! You and only you. When you take 100% responsibility for everything, no matter what, you operate from a place of power and leadership.

You Make It Happen – You Create It – You Attract It – It Is You

Lead yourself into greatness, why don’t you? If you spend most of your time feeling great and blissful and ecstatic and joyful, then you’ll get more of that.  If most of the time you feel OK, you’ll get OK. If you feel sucky, then you get sucky back. That’s Law Of Attraction.

You get back what you put out. You get back the results of your creating. Become ‘the cause’, instead of being ‘at effect’. To be responsible means you look at what it is that you’re not getting and make changes so that you can make it happen.  Get it? I hope so!

100% responsibility. Shouldering that responsibility means changing things in your life, so that your life can change. Be willing to examine yourself about what you’re doing or are not doing. Then make the positive change that brings you closer to what you do want. Do it.

What You Feel Is What You Get – What You Think Is How You Feel

This is another reason why gratitude is so important. When you’re focused on what you’re thankful for you feel better. When you feel better you create better. You attract better things into your life. You make better things happen. That is why it’s important to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Make The Changes You Haven’t Been Getting

“Life not going the way you hoped? You think you are doing everything right, everything you can do, but things turn sour. What is going on with that? Can you get what you want without all the drama and upheavals?  Responsibility is most likely the issue.

In today’s age, few people seem to want to take responsibility for anything. Blaming and accusing others while making excuses for ourselves seems to rule. ‘I wasn’t late. It was the traffic!’ ‘It isn’t my fault. My parents never taught me.’ ‘Damn corporations!’ Get it?

We have a tendency to shift the responsibility away from ourselves. We don’t hold ourselves accountable. If we really want to change and create the best life ever, this is an important area to begin to make some changes in. Each of us needs to live to a higher standard.

Distance Yourself From Negativity And Beautiful Things Happen 

IF things aren’t going the way you hope, then the responsible thing to do is to accept 100% responsibility for any, and all, results you are getting, or not getting. When things go bad it is time to reflect on our thoughts and behaviors, not accuse and blame others. Reflect!

If things aren’t going the way that you hope, or the way that you would like them to, STOP and look at what you were vibrating. What are you thinking and feeling? What are your predominant thoughts in or outside of your awareness? Analyze your thoughts and feelings.

Look to yourself so you can change yourself, and your thoughts and your feelings. Stop blaming outer circumstances and others. Change your thoughts, your feelings and your actions. Accept responsibility and become accountable for what you do, or don’t do. Get it?

Either You Run The Day Or The Day Runs You

It is all on you. By deciding to be accountable you put yourself in the driver’s seat. You take charge. Your circumstance isn’t up to, or on, anyone or anything else. It is all completely up to you. Whether you do it, or not. Whether you make it happen, or not. It is all your doing.

Yes, many people don’t want to accept that. They haven’t lived that way, so making this change seems difficult. That’s right, it SEEMS difficult. Once you begin the process, it gets easier and easier. It is mental conditioning. Like anything else, it gets easier as you do it.

Consider this: for years and years and years you have lived habitual, chronic, less than glorious, limited thinking and beliefs, feelings and actions. Then you discover the Law Of Attraction and positive thinking and think everything will magically change. You wish it.

All Things Are Difficult Before They Are Easy 

You hope that spending 10 minutes, or so, each day thinking positive about what you want, will change everything. You do it for awhile but at the first speed bump, if you are like many, throw in the towel. They give up. They blame it and claim it didn’t work. Get it? Do you?

That is wishful thinking. The TRUTH is, it requires a reconditioning of your thinking. How quickly things change is up to you. It could happen almost instantaneously. Usually, it requires more time. Just as planting a seed takes time to develop and grow and blossom.

The promise of the Law Of Attraction is that the PREDOMINANT thought in your mind, is what you will make happen. It is what you are thinking about most often that you become, do and have. You become what you think about most frequently. Get it? Do you?

What You Think About Most Often You Become

What are your most often thoughts? What do you spend most of your time attending to? Is what you want a burning desire? Is it an obsession? Are you mostly concentrating on the good you desire and imagining how good it feels to have that right now, or not?

IF, most of the time, you’re thinking distractions, petty annoyances; the traffic, weather, gossip, blaming government, others. the media, and the weather, THEN you are spending your time with less than glorious elements, negative and wasted thoughts. Its your time!

If you are noticing the distance between where you are and what you want, you are focused on the lack, and on not having it. You are concentrated on how you don’t have what you wanted; how far a distance it is, until you get there. So that’s what continue to create. 

Feelings Are The Driver – You Choose What To Feel – Feel Great

Get it? It is all up to you, not the environment or others, to make happen what you want to make happen. I’ll share more next blog but for now get used to the idea of taking 100% responsibility for everything in your life, good or bad. That decision is life changing!

Everything can instantly change the moment you make a powerful decision to take charge. I don’t mean suddenly rainbows and fairy dust appear. I mean you assume control of your life and from that starting point you are ABLE to make changes you weren’t before.

When you get that it is you doing it, everything becomes different. As long as others do it to you, you are a victim. You are tossed around like a rudderless, and powerless, boat on the sea. You need to operate from your own strength and power. When you do, everything does begin to change! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

When Things Are Tough Stop Being A Crap Magnet!

When things are toughest, when the crap hits the fan what is one to do? Many buckle, cave and give in. They whine, complain, excuse and blame self, others, events and circumstances. While comforted by this negative, non-supportive habit, it does nothing to help.

Stop the whining and complaining. Stop finger pointing. It doesn’t change things.  The attitude that there are outer circumstances, forces, events or people who prevent you from being who you want or getting ahead doesn’t help you in the least,

Nor does it support you changing or circumstances changing. For you or the outer world to change you must FIRST change yourslef on the inside. The right mindset, the right thoughts and beliefs and feelings are crucial. Without these you get almost nowhere.

You Get What You Focus On – Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Anyone who has changed, without exception, has either deliberately or inadvertently changed their mindset from one of negativity and failure to one of positivity, happiness and success. Without exception! This IS what you must do. From within to without it goes.

You must hope and envision a better day to bring it about. To give in to ‘big corruption’ or outer influences, and assume there will never be a change, assures you there won’t be. Keep the faith that it can and will always work out for the best. Hope and believe! You must!

Do whatever it takes positively to bring change about. This is the path. Have faith. Be optimistic. Share the positive vibes and limit the negative ones. Create more positivity than negativity. You know the analogy, darkness flees when the light is turned on. Turn yours on!

Stop Being A Crap Magnet – Create And Attract Positive Vibes

Decide to stop focusing on what is wrong. Start focusing on the solutions and what you want instead. Focus on the good. Find it no matter how difficult. Focus on what you can and do appreciate. Look for the blessings! Be grateful. Feel the gratitude fully! Believe you can and will bring about a better day and a better world. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What And Who Determines Your Success? The Bad And Good News

“The great problem for most people is they believe they’re victims of circumstance, events and other people; others and circumstances determine whether they, the individual, rise or fall, succeed or fail. They believe ‘something else’ is responsible, not them. Do you?

It can be blatant or quite subtle. I overheard someone the other day say, what a positive thinker they were, but how the economic downturn caused them to go under. On and on this person went. Is this an accurate description of reality? Perhaps, but perhaps not.

If you believe others and circumstances are responsible for you then, yes, to some degree it is accurate. Your beliefs shape your reality. However, it’s more likely that these outer forces influence you, and your decision, but don’t cause you to fail or succeed.

You Are Unstoppable When You Believe In Yourself

What you do determines whether you succeed or fail. Thinking outer forces control you is believing in magic and fantasy. If you believe outer forces dictate your fate then you have no choice, you are predestined or merely a puppet. Something else is in charge.

Do you get this? Hey, a bridge can be out, and you must take detour, that is an influence. Whether you continue to your destination is up to you, not the bridge. The weather can be bad. You might be delayed. Whether or not you continue on eventually, is up to you.

The economic situation can change. You could lose everything. Many do. Many become rich during the worst of times. What you do in that situation is up to you. Your life partner can leave you. How you continue on, is up to you. Yes, or circumstances can influence.

Don’t Be Pushed By Your Problems Be Lead By Your Dreams

What each of us, needs to cultivate is the belief that you are powerful. You have the ability and inner resources, even if hidden, to make your dreams come true. If you somehow, don’t have the inner resources, you can learn to  develop them, so you can succeed.

Believe in yourself more than outer influences. Those who do make their way to success and happiness. They don’t let anything or anyone rain on their parade. They keep their attention, and intensity, on where they want to go and, believe and, work to get there.

They don’t give up. Those who throw in the towel or quit don’t cross the finish line. Realize you are in a process of becoming. You are in a process of learning. You are in a process of creating your path. You are in the process of gathering your resources and making it happen.

Follow Your Dreams – Believe In Yourself – Never Give Up – Do It

Everything I have shared with you in these daily blogs helps you to understand and cultivate the beliefs and everything you need. My recent videos and audios, and workshops for decades, have been designed to assist you in making your life the way you want it.

When you apply, these tried and true principles and approaches, handed down from ancient times to present, backed up by research and the success of countless hundreds of thousand who have used them to succeed, YOU can too. Whether you do, or not, is up to you.

To know and not to do, is to not know. If you don’t consistently do what can help you to be better and make your dreams come true, don’t complain. Complaining, whining, excusing and blaming others and yourself is pointless and detrimental. It doesn’t help anyone.

Your Mind Believes What You Feed It – Feed It Positive Thoughts

Dedicate yourself to becoming the best. Do, at the very least, a little each day, and you will get there much quicker than doing nothing at all. Do you get this? The more you do, the more you become capable of doing. Engage. Plug in ! Do it. Cultivate the beliefs and attitudes.

Develop the mindset that gives you the edge. When you think and feel you are successful, no matter what, then you can be. Mindset first! Practice gratitude and appreciation. When you feel your best you bring about the best. Mindset first! Get it? If you do, then take charge. Take action and celebrate everything! Rex Sikes

You Fail Because Of What You Don’t Do

“People wonder why they don’t get ahead, aren’t happy and not succeeding? The struggle and try harder but continue to miss the mark or fail. Why that is, is because of where they put their attention and where they don’t. You won’t get to L A unless you head to L A.

Not only must you know your destination but you must focus on it. Imagine trying to hit a bullseye but thinking about the wall, the outer rings, wondering ‘what if I don’t hit the bullseye’, or being distracted by anything and everything that is not the bullseye. Wouldn’t work.

Would it? In order to hit the  bullseye you have to aim at the bullseye and keep your attention on it. Energy flows where attention goes. You won’t hit the bullseye if your attention and energy is anywhere else. It is the same with hitting a baseball, a golfball or your goal.

Opportunities Come To Those Who Dare – Not Those Who Wait 

If you want to make your dreams come true, your attention and energy needs to be on your dreams. You can’t be impatient, you can’t notice the lack of it, you can’t be worried by the distance from where you are to your dream is, or anything else. You focus on your dream.

To make your dream come true you must know what you want. Precisely define it. Put the correct address in your GPS if you want to get to that correct address. You have to know where you want to end up. You must focus on it to the exclusion of all else. You must.

It must become a burning desire, a white hot obsession. If it is anything less, you are not likely to commit and persist. If you don’t care enough you won’t bother to make it happen if, and when, the going gets tough. You must be excited about it and feel good about it.

You Become What You Think About – What You Focus On Expands

When you think about making it happen you should feel wonderful. You should be eager and delighted. Anything less and you probably won’t make it happen. You have to keep your aim on the bullseye and know you will hit it. You can’t doubt it or you won’t hit it. Get it?

If it is to be, it is up to you. You make it happen. It doesn’t happen to you or for you. No one gives it to you. You create it, conceive of it, believe you can do it, and you achieve it. To do that you need the right mindset. Your attitude determines your altitude.

You get the correct mindset  by doing the things I have shared with you in these blog pages, correctly, repeatedly, consistently, for long enough to make it automatic, reliable, positive habit. It’s all here. Study and apply it. Do it. Apply yourself. While you do feel grateful and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Can’t Get There If You Don’t Know Your Destination!

“You can’t get there if you haven’t set and don’t know your destination. The reason most people don’t accomplish their goals and dreams is because they want to be comfortable. They don’t want to stretch outside their comfort zone. They THINK it is too hard.

Continued from previous blog: People think it takes too much. Their limiting thoughts and beliefs, their excuses, whines and blames keep people the same. If this is you you need to change it up. Nothing will change until you change. The good news is YOU CAN CHANGE!

Yes, it takes some effort. You can’t do nothing and expect it to be different, but, even a small shift, a 1% change over time, can make an incredible difference. All you have to do is open that tiny window of possibility for change and you can. You decide to be different.

Every Day Is An Opportunity To Change Your Life For The Better

Read books. Read inspirational material that is motivational. Feed your mind a positive, healthy, mental diet each day. Walk outside and move your body. Spend some time in nature. Pick some positive affirmations and recite them frequently, with strong positive feeling.

Practice gratitude. Feel blessed. Smile more. Laugh. Even these small changes will make a big difference. Don’t bite off more than you can chew, but realize the more you do, the more you become able to do. Success breeds success and confidence. You can do it. YOU CAN! Learn to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Your Answer To This Question Will Determine If You Can Succeed

Most people claim they are ready and willing to be happy and succeed. Most may even claim they have had enough of life the way it has been and they want it to be different. They will do anything to get out of debt, depression, anxiety and fear. BUT will they?

Will you? What most people claim and what most people do are  worlds apart. The honest answer to my question can determine the likelihood of whether or not you change AND whether you change easily. You can’t bullshit a bullshitter. So be true to yourself.

That is the most difficult thing to do, sometimes. If you really want to change you must face certain things. Here is the question: How willing are you to change? That is it. What is your willingness to change quotient. Are you actually willing to change your life?

If You Want Things To Change – You Have To Change

Okay, I asked the same question three different ways. So what is your answer? Many people say they will do anything to change, but they won’t. What about you? If you truly want your life to change you must change some things in your life. You can’t remain the same!

If you always do what you have always done, you will always get the same results. You will continue to get what you have always got. Get it? Unless you are willing to change, and actually change things, everything remains the same. You need to learn new habits. So…..

How willing are you to change? How much money will you spend? I bet some went, ‘Whoa, money! I’m not going to spend money? This will cost me? I can’t afford much. Do you know how much debt I have? It is always about money!’ Or some variation. Right. Did you?

If You Want Things To Be Better – You Have To Be Better

It always comes down to money, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no. How much time are you willing to dedicate? Someone just thought, ‘I have no time as it is!’ Or some variation. What are you willing to give up or go without? Would you give up your favorite TV show?

Would you go without your favorite show, or past time, for a year, if it meant you could get your goals and live your dream life? Would you give up junk food;  Alcohol; Tennis: Golf; Poker; Whatever it is? What are you willing to give in exchange for changing your life?

People say they are willing but, more frequently, do nothing to change. Would you read positive, books and articles and blogs for an hour each day? Would you for 30 minutes? 5 minutes? What are you willing to do? Would you listen to inspirational audios? Well?

If You want To Have More – You Have To Become More

How about you take a seminar or program. Attend a learning event or workshop. Would you commit to a weekly, or monthly, meeting? What will you do to change? The bottom line is your change IS going to cost you something! Either money, time, energy or habits.

Either you pay the price or you don’t change. Get it? You can’t do everything the same way you always have and expect things to be different. That is truly insane! Right? That IS the definition of insanity. To be different you must do things differently! Get it?

So how willing are you to do whatever it takes to get what you want? That is the question. How willing are you to change? What is your willingness? If you say you are very willing then prove it to yourself. Take some immediate action in that direction. Don’t wait. Do it.

Your Life Is A Reflection Of Your Thoughts and Feelings – Mindset

If you wait, you won’t! If you have to think about it, you won’t. Old habits die hard. Do it right now. Do it within 24 hours. That way you convince your brain you are serious about changing. Take action in the direction of the changes you want. Don’t let it go or it goes away.

People give lip service to change but make all manner of excuses. They whine, complain, and blame. They say, ‘If you only knew how hard it is…’ Blah blah blah. Anyone can make an excuse. If the first thing that goes off in your head is one, learn to change that. Do it!

You need to develop automatic, reliable, supportive thought, feeling and behavior habits, that are aligned, to help you get yourself what you want in life. We all have many that distract and keep us limited, weak, angry, doubtful and fearful. We need to change these.

So What Positive Good Will You Do To Change Your Life

When you shift from the less than supportive habits to the more supportive ones sometimes there is inertia to overcome. ‘Old habits die hard’. Still, we can change. Sometimes in some time. Sometimes instantly. But only if you are willing, can it happen. Are you willing?

How willing are you to change things, so that you transform your life for the better. I show you how in these blog pages every day. There are tips and suggestions, powerful principles and practices. Do you use and apply them? Do you go back and study these blog posts?

What do you do to make you, and your life, better? To develop a new habit you must consistently, correctly, apply yourself. That means daily, even numerous times during the day. So how willing are you to change? How committed? Be honest. Be true to yourself.

When You Decide To Take Action – Act Immediately – Do It Now

If you are truly willing and committed then you can and will change. Have you watched my video? I linked it below. Do you practice gratitude? Can you count everything as a blessing, yet? If not you have some practicing and celebrating to do. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
