It Sucks But You Aren’t Thinking Your Own Thoughts!

“I like to be challenged to think and challenge others to think. Thinking is a rare act for most people these days. Especially these days, but for all of time. Most of us live from memories. We run  old mental movies in our mind. The same old memories and thoughts.

We run the same repetitive self-talk we’ve repeated endlessly for years. It never changes but the days change. We rag on ourselves the same way. We blame others and circumstances the same way. Events and people change but our thoughts stay the same.

We live from old preconditioned thoughts we think over and over, believing them to be ‘free thought’. They aren’t. They are rules, beliefs, and opinions we accepted while growing up. We bought into them from parents, peers, experience and media of all types.

The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think

We are socially conditioned. We think we should go to school, get a job, work 40 hours a week, marry, have kids, be a good citizen because we have bought into that. In and of itself, none of that is not necessarily not good, but it can be if you accept it without choices.

Thinking and regurgitating our old pre-conditioining are two separate things. Opinion versus fact are not the same.  Most of us accept opinion as fact. This is why we are so easily deceived. We don’t bother to check for ourselves. How often do you vet sources?

We believe it because someone said it, or we heard it, read it, saw it on the internet, or TV or in movies and popular songs but we don’t fact check it. We elect officials off of platitudes and slogans and media image campaigns without checking first if they are any good.

You Become What You Think About Most Frequently

We accept so much at face value because it is repeated to us over and over again. We affirm what we are told numerous times. The same applies to our own thinking. We don’t check to actually see whether it is valid or not. Most of our own thinking is broken.

We just believe it is because we ‘think’ it. We shouldn’t! Most of our thoughts are old accepted conditioning that is now habit to think. We do it automatically. We react from habit not from new thought. We are conditioned to do this. We can change, but only if we want.

In order to change we must first become aware of it. We must recognize what we have been doing. We need to take responsibility for it and become aware when we do it next. This requires vigilance and dedication. It may seem difficult, and it can be, but gets easier.

To Change You Must Make The Unconscious Conscious – Be Aware

If you don’t do it you will continue the way you always have. If that is great and okay with you then continue. If it isn’t and you prefer to change and live more fully, abundantly, happily, heathy, wealthy and more successful then you need to make changes now. Don’t wait!

It doesn’t get easier or better the longer you wait. It only gets worse. Realize now, that you are where your thoughts have brought you. Take responsibility for everything you have and don’t have in your life. No one else is responsible for thinking your thoughts but you.

To change become aware when you find yourself thinking old negative, less than glorious, dis-empowering thoughts and change them to more powerful positive thoughts. Continue to do this until you make the new choices, the new thoughts, habit. Get it?

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

It is up to you and no one else. So stop blaming, excusing, and complaining and start telling the stories you want to be told. Create positive life experiences, new goals and dreams you achieve. Live, laugh, and love more. Practice gratitude. This is how you begin to change. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Stop Being Dick-Headed

“There are those who are open and skeptical. There are those who are skeptical and closed. There are those who are closed, skeptical and cynical. These are the one’s we typically call ‘a dick’. Or we call them something worse. Bottom line: Stop being a dick! Yes, you!

Me too! Stop being a dick. Drop dick-headedness and seek to be a new and different, open person. I prefer the term agnostic. Why agnostic?  Because we really don’t know what we don’t know. We only know what we THINK we know and that is not very much.

We don’t know how things might turn out but we often fear the worst. We could expect the best, yet only a few do. We just don’t know how much we don’t know either. It is true fools think they know everything. They think they have the only correct version.

We Don’t Know What We Don’t Know And We Don’t Know That

Those foolish people are closed minded. They refuse to see the many sides of every proposition. Don’t you think it odd many of us claim to know everything. Not only that we claim to know what is best for everyone else too. Pretty sad when you think about it. Narrow!

Yet, that is the way of the world. That happens when people create societies. We end up pursuing norms more than we pursue exceptions. We swallow the cultural kool-aid on how we are limited, broken, victims and worse. We can think otherwise but don’t/

We don’t because most don’t fully realize they could. So instead of discovering new ways of being they defend to old vehemently. They don’t need to but they feel as if they do. We could argue over objective versus subjective ‘truth’ endlessly. We’d waste time.

Stop Defining Yourself By Your Limits – Have A Parachute Mind

There are militant minded people of all persuasions. I prefer staying as open and educated and enlightened as possible without taking any of it too seriously. I prefer to learn and continue to learn, to discover and to grow and expand what I think is possible. Don’t you?

So stay open. Decide to become aware when you react instead of respond. Decide to learn how to master that tendency so you can become freer. Seek to find the good in all situations. Stop being quick to judge and allow things to unfold without bias. Let go. LET GO!

When you stop defending the old you have more energy to nurture the new. Look for the blessings, the positive. Speak to bless, heal and prosper. Focus on gratitude and joy. Be happy. Find moments and make them magical. All moments are! Every moment you have is the only moment you  have. Don’t squander the moments. Savor them. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Are Governed By What You Don’t Know!

“Not everything is the same. Some things matter far more than other things. ‘Well, yes’, you say, ‘that’s obvious.’ BUT is it? Some things that are truly important, and run the show, are those things we aren’t aware of. We are governed by what we don’t know.

Not all thoughts are equal. Some are random thoughts that come and go. It is the ongoing, chronic thoughts inside, and outside, of your awareness that have the power. What are you thinking that you are not aware of? What do you repeatedly think day in and day out?

It is these thoughts that make the difference. Since, at least, the early 90’s I have pointed out that we think about 65,000 thoughts a day. Upwards of 90%, some estimate between 95-99%, of those thoughts are the same today as we thought yesterday. Imagine that.

We First Make Our Habits – Then Our Habits Make Us

There’s not much in the way of new thinking in us, is there?  You can’t track 65,000 thoughts. Most operate unconsciously, subconsciously outside of your awareness but happen reliably, automatically just the same. These are habitual thoughts. Chronically negative, too.

Habitual thoughts determine our reality. Right this instant we are right where our thoughts have brought us. Tomorrow, we’ll be where our thoughts take us. If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. You will be the same tomorrow.

Unless you change your thinking!  If, on a scale of 1-10 your life is a ten, then you should keep doing what you are doing. However, if you are off by any number, you might want to change some things and change your life for the better. It is the only way to change!

What Unconsciously Consumes Your Mind Controls You Life

Why the photo above? The water looks lovely. In the water are countless living organisms we can’t see. They are there, living, but we don’t know. There is lots of other stuff hidden in the depths of the water. The water is teeming with things unknown and unseen.

Your habits govern you. Subconscious, chronic limited thinking keeps you limited. You must uncover, release and let go your negative thinking. You must shift your conscious, and unconscious thinking, to be mostly positive and powerful. Can’t stay the same.

You need positive, supportive thought habits. If you aren’t living the life you want, I want to help you create your best life, ever. That is why I write this blog and conduct seminars, workshops and training. You must learn to control and manage your thoughts and feelings.

You Can’t Control Behaviors If You Can’t Control Your Thoughts

When calamity, or bad situation, occurs it triggers old memories, associations, and negative neural-net habits of thought, feeling and action. You must change these to be better. You want triggers to release good, positive, powerful thoughts instead of the bad.

Gratitude is a wonderful place to begin. Become thankful for everything. Focus on gratitude. Increase it. Be thankful. Express it. Speak it and write it. Think about it and delight. Join me in deciding to make your life the best life ever. Start now. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
