Doing This Can Transform Your Life

“Put these thoughts and principles into action and you can transform your life! Remember, if you always do the same things over and over; no change. To change, you must change things! I share with you an incredible statement from a very wise, knowing author.

‘When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.’

Patanjali wrote it  centuries ago.  Napoleon Hill stated, once you’ve clarified your dominant chief aim or purpose in life and turned it into a magnificent obsession, your entire person, all of you, conscious and unconscious abilities work together to make it happen. So cool!

If You Really Want Something You’ll Find A Positive Way To Do It

If you can conceive it, and believe it you can achieve it. Align your thinking with your major dream or purpose in life and you can become unstoppable. You can create your best life ever, when you know how, and make your dreams come true. Do it! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Obey The Law Or Suffer The Consequences

“There is lots of mumbo jumbo about transformation, the law of attraction and changing your circumstances. There are books and articles that claim to reveal what no one else has previously. There are writings that positive thinking etc doesn’t work.

Here is the truth as I understand it. There are principles and laws. Laws work whether you believe in them or not. If you don’t understand and respect the law you are bound to get hurt or disappointed in the very least. Consider the law of gravity

You may choose not to believe it or work with it but if you step off a high place gravity will win. The same is true about electricity. No one today, yet understands electricity, but they know how to work with it. They understand what you can and can’t do. You must know it.

If You Want Your Life To Change You Must Change Some Things 

You will get hurt if you don’t do things properly according to the law of electricity. Properly applied it can light a house. Improperly applied it can cause death and destruction. The same is true with the law of attraction. You work with it as it is and benefit or you don’t.

Most people don’t know it. They don’t understand it. They still are subject to it. They may not even believe it. Yet, they still get lackluster results or ‘bad’ things happen because what they fear most they bring upon themselves. It works either way.

If you want to create good things then you have to work with it the way it works. You can’t do it your way. Most people simply are not prepared to do what it takes to make it work. They dabble, but they don’t master working with the law. Hence, they are disappointed.

Insanity Is Do Things The Same Way But Expect Different Results

You must learn how to work with the law to benefit from the law. All good things can be yours when you apply yourself to it. If you want to transform your life it is up to you to do what it takes. If you wanted to be an Olympic swimmer the same applies. You need to do!

You must do what it takes to get the result. The Law Of Attraction can seem like magic once mastered. Until then you must go through whatever it takes to learn to master it. If you are willing and do so great things are in store. If not, don’t expect much to change. Get it?

If it is to be it is up to you to work with the law. Begin by practicing gratitude in all. Be thankful for all things. Even the things it seems to be counter-intuitive to be thankful for. When you can count everything a blessing, and feel it fully, then everything is a blessing. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Lots Of Things Are Hard So What? Get Over It!

‘Perfect’ practice makes perfect. The more we do, the more we can do. The longer we do it, the easier it becomes. Juggling is difficult, movie making is difficult, swimming is difficult, learning to walk is difficult. Good thing it occurred  when we were mostly pre-verbal.

Most things are hard at first. Some remain challenging but are completely doable and can be mastered. So get over the thought it is difficult and do it. As an infant you’d have never rolled over, sat up, crawled, walked, fed yourself or learned to talk, if you could talk.

You’d have whined and complained it was too hard and you couldn’t do it. What stops most people is a mental packet of energy called a thought and/or a feeling, as in ‘I don’t feel motivated’. Enough with the BS! Find a way to do it or at least stop whining! Okay? DO IT!

The More You Do The More You Become Capable Of Doing

It is time for people, for you, to learn how powerful they, and you, are. Psychologists and the media want you to think you’re broken.  This is so they can control you. Big medicine, pharma and the elite powers purposefully attempt to usurp your power and positivity.

Their interests are to turn people in worker bees and wage slaves who follow orders and stay in line. A disempowered populace serves the elite rather than themselves. People, you are amazingly resourceful and can overcome anything! Time to wake up and live!

You can accomplish so very much! YES, it may be difficult at first but it gets easier as you do it. Even if the deck were stacked against you, some break through. You should count yourself as one of them. Stop being a victim and a puppet! Become a powerful person. Live strong!

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

Exercise you choices. Make your dreams come true. EVEN if it is tough, for goodness sakes, do it! If you don’t live your dreams you will live someone else’s and make them rich while you do. Decide to better yourself. Learn, develop, and get free. Design your mind and your life. Do whatever positive, powerful and legal things it takes to advance yourself and help others. Live strong! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You’ll Lose More Than You Win If You Don’t Know This About Other People!

“Can you quickly and easily create trust, rapport, and gain understanding, while eliminating roadblocks with clients, customers, and important people, in your professional and personal life? Can loved ones, investors, customers, agents, kids and all be influenced?

If yes, then how? This is important. You must get this! If you understand  the importance of the principle I’m sharing it can revolutionize your life and everything you do. I mean that! Alright here is what you, and I, MUST do to succeed wildly! Get this!

You must meet the other person where they’re at! Not where you are. You must speak their language, not just your language! When you communicate with them, HOW they prefer to be communicated with, you win, and so do they. You must be flexible and not limited.

If You Always Do What You Always Did You’ll Get What You Got

You must know MORE than one way of doing things. The difficulty with most sales people and influencers is they sell, and attempt to persuade, how they THINK the other person wants to hear the information. This will have YOU hear ‘NO’, more often than not.

You must adjust FOR them. Do not expect them to adjust for you. You must be adaptable and flexible. You must be smart enough to discover WHY they ACTUALLY buy, and what is important to THEM, and not what you THINK the reasons are. You need to learn theirs!

You need to get curious enough about the other person to do it their way. No one really likes being sold. Do you? If someone is attempting to get you to do something, do you enjoy it? Most probably not, most of the time, BUT, you, and others, enjoy buying things. Get it?

If What You Are Doing Isn’t Working Do Anything Else

If you wanted to sell a Chinese or French speaking only person or client, you’d have to put your presentation into words and terms they understood. You wouldn’t insist they learned your language first, would you? Not if you are smart, but yet, that is what most do.

That is what less than successful people do all the time! They expect others to buy the way they sell. To be successful professionally, or personally, in influencing others, we need to sell the way the other person buys! Get it? Adjust to them, don’t make them adjust to you!

When you learn WHY THEY BUY and adjust your presentation to them, whether it’s you family and friends or professional clients, customers, associates and potential partners, they more easily and readily and completely, can understand the offer you are making.

If It Isn’t Working For Most People They Do It Again Only Louder

When you appeal to why they buy and what is important to them, they can more readily and easily say ‘YES’ to you! Because they can recognize how your offer fits with what is important with them. Get it? You’ll be far more successful when you master this! Seriously!

If you don’t apply this, and continue to do what you have always done, you will continue to hear more ‘nos’ than ‘yeses’. You will fail to convince your family and friends and lose tons of money, leaving it on the table professionally, if you keep doing what isn’t working.

Doing more of that IS the definition of insanity. If you are pleased with the results you get, you can still benefit from learning improved ways of doing things. You can learn, grow and excel even more! If you are unhappy with your results, you must change what you do!

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

In coming blogs I will share with you a powerful system for getting more yeses! I will share with you, some of the secrets, the science and the system for unlocking another person’s buying behavior to skyrocket your results. You will love learning this. I mean it!

I will share with you a webinar that you will want to watch all the way through to the end. It is lengthy, about 90 minutes, so make time for it. I’ll introduce you to a good friend and mentor of mine. You watch and you will get everything you need to, to begin a new way.

I am thrilled to share this information with you. Because, I’ve been doing this for forty years. I realized years ago if I didn’t speak my customers language (and who is my customer? ANYONE I am attempting to influence) I was not respecting them. It was I, who lost.

The Chameleon Is A Wise Creature It Adapts To Its Surroundings

Once I learned what I needed to learn, what I needed to do, and learned my customer’s language, everything changed. I am happy to share this with you. Get it? If you want to improve a lot of different areas of your life this is an important way to begin to do that.

Until next blog consider these thoughts and principles. Plus, be sure to focus on what you are grateful for, and what you enjoy about you and your present life. Keep the faith and know that you will unlock the door and make all sorts of good things happen as you, feel grateful, put on a positive mindset, and take right action. So celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Stop Whining And Go Get It!

horizons a-hard-days-work-phil-koch

“People drift. Many don’t know what they really want or what to do. They vacillate. They fret and worry. They are lost or caught up in less than glorious circumstances. They seek answers. I have, you too. Pundits have offered answers and hope; some good, some not.

What I like about Napoleon Hill is he tells it like it is. Many proponents of the Law of Attraction make it about wishing, wanting and hoping. They promote magical thinking. They claim, make a wish and hope it comes true. Sadly, many give up when that doesn’t work.

Hill pointed out that you must have an obsessive desire to obtain what it is you want in life. You must crave it such that there is an intensity behind what you want; so much that you will be willing to do anything positive and productive to accomplish or attain it.

A Champion Is Someone Who Gets Up even When He Can’t

You don’t wish it to happen. You don’t just want it to happen. You don’t hope it will happen. You don’t just dream it’s going to happen. You actually act and make it happen.  You know what you want. You focus on it to the exclusion of all else. You concentrate intensely.

You make it your burning  desire. Believe that you will make it happen regardless of circumstances. Believe in yourself and that you can do it. Hill says you need Applied Faith for when the going gets tough AND it will get tough. You need to believe your way through.

He is one of the few people who point out that on the path to success there may be difficulty and obstacles . He asks, if you know anyone who succeeded right from the very start without any difficulty. The answer is usually no. There may be rare exceptions.

Champions Train – Losers Complain

Hill modeled over 500 of the wealthiest people and discovered that on the path to success many succeeded and failed numerous times prior to ultimately making it. Most encountered severe obstacles that seemed insurmountable, yet, they prevailed. They had will!

Because they were severely challenged they learned how to attract money and wealth. They learned that they had to keep going, in spite of unbelievable odds. They were convinced they would succeed. In doing so they became invincible and unstoppable.

It begins with mindset. Attitude makes all the difference.  Champions know it will happen.  They are convinced it will happen. They expect to make it happen and they do. It happens because THEY persist. They are committed . They NEVER give up!

What You Are Thinking Is What You Are Becoming

They keep going until they accomplish what they set out to do. They have steel willpower.  They continue to do the right things, repeatedly and consistently for long enough to get their goals. This is the formula for success Napoleon Hill reveals out in his books.

Other proponents promote the airy fairy fluff.  Just wish it to happen. This is magical, mysterious thinking. The problem is that you and I buy into these notions. We want the lazy, easy, ‘no work’ way to riches. We want it fast and sweet. We want it yesterday. Am I right?

People exposed to this concept, read or see ‘The Secret’ and expect it to be a piece a cake. They think all all they have to do is imagine it coming to them and it will rain down into their lap. When it doesn’t happen quick enough they get confused and frustrated.

You Are Confined Only By The Walls You Made Yourself

They get disappointed and give up. Some might keep at it for a while hoping to make it work. They try to find the right way to have the heavens release their goods. Ultimately, they feel misled. Meanwhile, all along they are creating negative results.

Either you get positive results or negative results. You get what you want or you get what you don’t want. They are good at creating negative results. They get what they don’t want because they don’t focus correctly on what they do want. Correct application is needed.

They don’t do what they need to do in order to get what they want. You need to concentrate on it and make it a burning desire. Remember? Yes, expect it to be easy but know there can be obstacles. Know too,  that you will see your way through anything!

Champions Are Made Of Desire – Determination – Hard Work

It is all YOUR mindset. It is all attitude and thinking management. How and what you think determines your feelings and emotions. You either feel inspired and motivated or you don’t. You either feel it is possible or impossible. You feel you can do it or you can’t do it.

How you feel determines how you behave. When your mindset is right your feeling lead to inspired actions. You act! You behave congruently with your thoughts and feelings.  From your inspired actions you develop success habits.

Habits either support your success or detract from it. You either have habits of success or failure habits. You either get going and get doing those things that make you a champion or you doubt, fear, procrastinate and do those things that prevent you. Get it?

Champions Are Propelled By Desire – Not Compelled By Fear

To make any behavior a habit it you repeat it. You do it correctly, consistently, for long enough and it becomes a habit. It becomes automatic and reliable. You grow new neural pathways. You evolve your brain. You develop new thought, feeling and behavior habits.

These success habits, in unison, lead to positive results. As Hill revealed, you program your mind. You direct your mind and inform your subconscious mind what you want. It then goes on the lookout for opportunity and plans how you can get those results.

It is not magic.  It’s brain science. It’s not voodoo it IS how your brain works. The ancient thought leaders didn’t have science to back up their claims. They only knew what worked and what didn’t. Today, we have research that verifies it for those who need more proof.

Rock Bottom Has Built Way More Champions Than Privilege

The bottom line is you can have the success you want if you really want it enough. You must take charge of your brain. You have to control your thoughts! You need to focus exclusively. Concentrate on what you want. Feel like you’re already have it. Act as if!

Visualize. Affirm. Expect it your mind.  Think about it day and night. Plan to get it. Plan how you will get it. Start whether you are ready or not. Step out on faith that you can do it. Work ur plan and revamp your plan until you do get it! Keep going no matter what.

Develop this attitude! Do these things and you will get everything you want. You will make it happen because you will unstoppable! You will have shaped and conditioned and evolved yourself into a powerful ‘go getter’ force. You will develop the will to succeed.

Champions Keep Playing Until They Get It Right

You will do whatever is good, positive and productive to make it happen. You can help others and celebrate their successes along the way. You aren’t competing against anyone else for anything. You are making YOUR dreams come true and celebrating their dreams too.

It may not always go easy but that is okay. That serves to make you stronger and wiser. More important than what you get in the end is WHO you become during the pursuit. Evolve towards the highest good and you ultimately win much more!

Become the kind of person the world needs and you will succeed. The more people you help, the more of their problems you solve the more wealth and good will you generate. The more lives you positive influence the richer you become. Good news! That is telling it like it is! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have a wonderful day!

Stop Sniveling And Play To Win!

Horizons fly-by-phil-koch

“Sometimes you just have to play to win. That is it! Many brought up today are taught it is important that all are winners. There should always be a win-win outcome. You win they win all is good. Sometimes, though you have to just play so YOU win. Get it?

I’m not suggesting to be ruthless and crush people. Crush the game instead. Crush it! Win it! Do it! Do it for yourself and others! Win it! Go for it! Make it happen.  Have some guts, some balls! Develop whatever takes to win the prize. Don’t stop. Keep at it.

Sometimes it takes strong, intense, passionate desire. It takes back bone and will power and the fortitude to keep going in spite of incredible odds. Quitting must not be an option. Winning must be the only outcome. Sometimes, it requires we force ourselves.

The Price You Pay To Win Is Nothing Once You Have Made It

It is okay that others share the victory. Win-win is good too. I think it is desirable in probably most all situations involving other people. Share the wealth, the victory there is plenty to go around. The universe is abundant. Unless, you don’t believe it is. Then…

Then you have other issues to resolve as well. While you can get rich being stingy and an SOB it isn’t usually worth it for self, family or others. A healthy positive attitude, going the extra mile, treating others well and living an abundant life, with all, is preferable.

It is desirable and just works much better. So transform yourself into someone wonderful, if you don’t think, feel and act it already. AND play too win too. Have fun. If you ever played a board game, or any game  and didn’t care, or let others win, that isn’t much fun.

Winning Isn’t Everything – But Wanting To Is – Play To Win

You have to be in the game, totally. Enjoy the game. It is YOUR game! Play it to win. Play it to get the prize BUT play it and enjoy it. Make each moment worth it! Have fun, delight, and live it. Consider life a game to be enjoyed instead of a burden. Then it can be enjoyed.

Your attitude determines everything! Those who have suffered great loss of freedom, use of body, family, friends, finances and more that have triumphed in their spirit and life will tell you how you go through the tough times IS everything. You need your head on right!

Develop a winning attitude! Develop a winning outlook. Develop a winning, please personality and smile. Develop the ability to focus intently. Develop being unstoppable. Develop being friendly, kind, compassionate and giving. Develop being a great receiver!

Doubt Kills More Dreams Than Failure Ever Will – Play To Win

Develop the ability to appreciate everything and learn from everything. Develop deep gratitude and joyful enthusiasm. If you do these things, your life will become so incredible it will surprise and delight you. Then it will become the new normal. You will live it.

You will live it each day. Develop the awareness to change. Develop the ability to be open. Develop the ability to listen and respond. Develop the ability to develop! Transform. Delight, play to win, help others win, too. AND develop the ability to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Inside Your Room Without Windows You Can’t See The Blue Sky But It’s There!

horizons twilit-phil-koch

“You know there is a vast blue sky above you. Beyond that the infinite span of universe. Where planets, stars and astral bodies are countless. Vast, great, immense, wealthy is the universe. Abundant beyond our imagination. We cannot begin to  conceive all there is.

Now imagine you are lying in bed in a room. 4 walls a floor plus ceiling. You look up and around and you think that is all there is. There is only as much room from wall to wall and from floor to ceiling. This is your known space. You can’t see the sky outside.

You aren’t aware of the vast blue sky beyond the ceiling. You only know what you see in front of you.  You are certain that is all it is because that is all you have ever experienced. The walls and ceiling are your known limits. That is all there is. Yet, outside, the sky.

The Only Limitations You Will Ever Have Are Ones You Allow

Just because you experience limits doesn’t mean you have to remain limited. It doesn’t mean there isn’t more available. It only means you’ve go as far as have and not beyond. The only limitations that exist are the ones inside our own minds.

The universe is abundant. It is rich. The world we live in has more than enough for all. Limits are created by humans, by cartels. People restrict the flow. Consider money. There are trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars circulating, changing hands, every minute.

Yet, many of us live as paupers in all areas of our life. Finances, fun, romance, family, leisure, work and career, health and happiness. We aren’t limited but we don’t know the sky exists. We only see the walls before us. To be free we must see beyond what is in front of us.

There Are No Limits Only Plateaus – You Must Go Beyond Them

More people don’t experience abundance because they are preoccupied with only what they know. Their problems and disappointments, their frustrations and their bills. Their lack of time and happiness to enjoy the wonderful life we all our blessed to have.

Most people miss it. Don’t. Seek and you shall find. The truth shall set you free. Create a window in your walls and ceiling so you can begin to move beyond what you know into the limitless possibilities that are there for you. Stop being limited by the visible boundaries.

Start feeling gratitude for all there is that you can know and experience. Feel gratitude for the good that is coming your way that you can’t see yet. Allow yourself to feel free and know you can have access to all of it. Life offers everything to you. Take hold of it.

Don’t Limit Your Challenges – Challenge Your Limits

Don’t live with the delusion that there isn’t more, or that there isn’t enough. There is plenty. Abundance is what you and I were born into. Claim it. Demand it. Accept it and allow it. Don’t live as a pauper when you can live as an emperor. Awareness is the beginning.

Begin to think as one who is abundant in all areas of life. Act as if and affirm it. See it, feel it, speak it, hear it, taste and smell it. Don’t deny yourself all that there is available. Think it. As Napoleon Hill said, ‘whatever you can conceive and believe you can achieve’.

Focus your thoughts for positive success and create the life you want to have. Go beyond the limits in your mind. Take control of your thoughts and create the life you can imagine having. You can be, do and have anything when you put your mind to it. Delight, enjoy and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Why And What To Do When The Poo Hits The Propeller!


“Okay, you saw The Secret, you practice the Law Of Attraction, you maintained a positive attitude and things got worse. WTF? Why on earth should things turn sour. ‘It’s not fair’, you might exclaim.

Yes, you may be doing many things right. You have tried different practices. You have maintained them for awhile. Perhaps, as you would say, ‘I’ve tried everything but nothing works!’

Let’s pretend there is a god or a source or an intelligence that governs the universe and its laws. Imagine this infinite source of wisdom and benevolence.

Hardship Prepares Ordinary People For An Extraordinary Destiny

Imagine this source is actually you but you have, long ago, forgotten this about yourself. You pretend, in so many ways, to be limited and have issues. Just pretend again for a moment and accept the premise as possible. It is a hypothetical exercise. Try it on.

You have all this incredible power and wisdom to tap into but you don’t and you haven’t. Instead you bought into everything that was told to you, modeled for you while growing up and older.

Instead of living from your source of power you live from limitation and lack. Not completely, sometimes things are great, sometimes not. Things are the way they are. You like and you don’t at times.

Hardship  Comes From The Outside Failure Only From The Inside

You want more. You decide you will practice positive thinking and related disciplines. You begin and you expect the best. Lo and behold the fan gets covered with crap and you thought you’d be free of it.

This is the experience of many people. Why? Because they think if they just think right everything will magically change and they won’t actually have to do anything at all. They hope, wish, and pray.

That inner you, that wiser infinite source, knows you could be handed everything on a platter or you could evolve and learn and make things happen by getting back in touch with what makes you powerful.

God Gives His Toughest Battles To His Strongest Soldiers

In order for you to tap into your higher self you need to be challenged so you will seek yourself. Otherwise, you won’t. Most people don’t pray unless times get bad and then they become the consummate beggar.

Pleading that things change miraculously for them. Hoping, wishing, doubting, but pleading, ‘paleaseeeeee! I promise I will be good.’ They put their faith and requests outside of themselves.

They miss totally the possibility to change. They think it is from outside! Somehow, things will come to them if they think right or do right. That is why most people miss the boat on the LOA.

The Biggest Obstacles In Life Are The Barriers Our Mind Creates

People want to be spared the hardship. They want to avoid trials and tribulations. They want the cozy, cushy, lush, lavish good life dropped in their lap.

If you want to get to the top of Everest you gotta do the climbing.  If you want to possibly win the race you have to at least be dedicated to finishing. That is the law. Mindset and action. Keep going and never give up. See it through to the end.

You get challenged because you are bigger than you think you are. Your limited mind isn’t aware of it so you need to become convinced. You need to be tested by fire and made aware of what you are capable of. You need to learn who you are. So things turn crappy.

Obstacles Are Those Frightful Things You See…

This is precisely when you must apply, you must persist, you must maintain your course and positive attitude. Yet, this is the same exact time many throw in the towel and complain that nothing they tried works. Nothing you try will work.  It is you that works or doesn’t.

When you expect the LOA attraction or someone or something else to come to your aid and miraculously save you or solve your problems you are missing  YOU. You are putting your faith in magic instead of your infinite talents and wisdom and abilities.

You are the creator and you create these tests so you could find yourself again. It is the quest. The journey. The challenges, the stakes that are there for you to prove yourself. To find yourself.

… When You Take Your Eyes Off Your Goal

It is all about you. Struggles come. Learn from them. Rise above them. Accept the challenge. Learn to laugh in the face of difficulty. You are either bigger than the problems or they are bigger than you. Which it is determines how you live and what you get or don’t get.

The opportunity is for you to come into your own incredible power. To find yourself. Many will quit and claim the LOA doesn’t work. Too bad for them. Too bad for you if you do that. If you can’t find and remember your inner greatness then you miss out.

You find it from challenge not from cozy, comfort where everything comes to you from the outside. Can you create that? Sure, but not without learning how to navigate all the woes first. You move through the negative to the positive because that IS how it works.

When You Face Your Struggles You Overcome Them

You become a champion by contest. You win by playing and finishing the game well. If you wimp out you are finished. If you see it through to the end you can win the prize.

Life is whatever it is. Easy, hard. Accept it. Get over it. And Get on with it. We’ll look into this more in coming posts. Meanwhile, understand,  shit happens for you to rise above it. For you to learn there isn’t anything you can’t handle or you can’t do if you put your mind to it.

We Grow When We Face Challenges Not When It Is Easy

Some people want to claim the goods without the effort. The effort is your evidence. When you successfully navigate the toughest times you discover what you are made of and what you can do. Otherwise it is only theory. You are the proof.

Without the tough times you have no evidence. Once you do you can be confident you can handle anything. You know your power. You are secure in your abilities. You realize you are a powerful, positive creator and attractor. There is no doubt. You have come home to yourself and who you are.

This is what so many people, perhaps most people, don’t understand about pursuing your goals and making your dreams come true. Whenever troubled learn to smile and to laugh. Let nothing stop you.  Develop the attitude that you can handle anything that comes your way and you will. Appreciate it all and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Trump For President – Yes or No? What Makes ‘The Donald’ Trump The Rest?

Donald Trump

“He is rich, he is rude and arrogant. It doesn’t matter whether you are for him or against him, like him or not.  Perhaps, he has some attributes you don’t like and some that you do. It is worth taking a look at him to understand his success and his appeal and the behaviors that many don’t like nor appreciate. There are many things. Let’s briefly explore a few that make Trump, trump.

Donal Trump, presidential candidate, does not play by the rules. He makes them. When people ask him what his plan is at most he says, ‘we have a plan, it will work. We will make it work’. He says this because this IS how he thinks. This IS how a successful person thinks. He may or may not know ‘how’ he just knows it will happen because that is what he wants. He intends it to work. He’ll do it.

If it doesn’t work out he will find another way. This thinking works for him, but this is not what we want to hear from our candidates. It is, however, the thinking of the truly successful. ‘I will have a team and put them on it and we will make it happen’. Carnegie, Edison, Ford, major CEO’s, nice people or not, have a success mindset. They ‘know’ it will work! For them, the plan follows the intent.

You Are Where Your Thoughts Take You

People can ask, ‘what if it won’t or what if people don’t like it?’ He says, ‘they will, they will like it, they will come to like it. they will see’. He believes this. He knows this! He may not know politics or behave like a typical politician. He may or may not make a good presidential candidate or leader but he does exemplify the mindset necessary to succeed. He, himself is convinced and acts convinced. Completely!

There are rich people who are wonderful people and there are rich people who are awful. Money is an amplifier for the kind of person you are. The Bible says, ‘the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.’ It is not money that is evil. It’s been said, ‘…absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ There is the good and the not so good. There are those who exemplify the admirable and that which isn’t.

Trump is from wealth. He grew up in it. He inherited it. He has lived it for decades. He is surrounded by it. He oozes it. He made and lost money and is still apparently at the top of his game. He is a billionaire, a developer, a media darling, he is someone you may ‘love to hate’. He’s been in the public eye, as a person of wealth, for a long time. He thinks and acts different from most other candidates.

Attitude Is A Little Thing That Makes A Big Difference

For the very reasons mentioned above he IS different from the other candidates. You can tell from his body language. He is confident, used to getting his way, able to bulldoze over anyone, yet, has a sense of humor. Watch his body language. Trump is comfortable with himself, his position, his wealth. He is exudes power and dominance even while attacked by other candidates. He is secure!

Cruz and Rubio while wealthy in their own right, are not as comfortable nor confident as Trump. He baits them and stands centered, planted, hands in pockets, a condescending look on his face. He is nonplussed. They look at him and look TO him. He does’t bother to look at them. They seem so weak by comparison. Bush was completely out of his league. He knows he is in charge of the room!

Again, I am not suggesting Trump would be a good President or that he should even be President. I am simply pointing out the differences. What gives Trump the edge? Cruz and Rubio are pretty confident in their own right, on their own, but are no match for Trump on the same stage. He knows it, they know it, and it is painful to watch. Trump isn’t a politician he is a dominant force!

If You Really Want Something You Will Find A Way

There may be a host of other qualities and characteristics voters want in a candidate but Trump is comfortable being Trump. He is used to being  in the spotlight, being outlandish and extravagant in all regards. He is used to being rich, and used to being a celebrity. He is media savvy. These could make him a great choice or a horrible one. Trump knows something the others don’t from experience.

Whether he can run the country or not remains to be seen but one thing is for certain. He has been running the media show so far. He has been running the debates. When have you ever seen such chaos before as people attempt to assert themselves against the lead candidate. I am not suggesting you like him, or be like him. Be yourself. Be your best self. Come into your own strengths.

Why do I mention ‘the Donald’ here? He has characteristics you may not want to have and he has some it would be beneficial to have. He didn’t get this far in the election or life without something going on inside. It is a mental game, after all. From within to without. No it doesn’t have to be pretty. The results you create stem from what you have going on in your thoughts and feelings.

Success Is A Matter Of Correct Habits

Like it or not he has ‘attitude’. He knows he is a force to reckon with. He knows how to play the game and he makes you play his. He seems to believe he is right, better, or a better choice, good for the country, and unstoppable. Whether he is or would be remains to be seen but he has attitude. That sets him apart in a very big way. Kings, queens and lords think differently from the subjects they rule.

Some create some really incredible things some create discord. Trump has something going on on the inside whether or not like it or agree with him. If we want to be a success we need to make sure we have something going on inside. Thoughts come first. Our thoughts lead to feelings. Our feelings lead to our actions. Our actions to results. If you want stellar results start with stellar thoughts.

Some people unite others some divide. Not all rich people or successful people are likable but YOU could be. You don’t have to be abrasive to get to the top. Notice however, those at the top are are different. They believe in themselves. They act certain. They know! They expect good results from to come from their actions. You can know this too. Control your thoughts, don’t let them control you.

The Brain Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think

Do you think Trump could stand the waves of attacks warranted and unwarranted if he wasn’t steeled in his thinking. If he wasn’t in control or in charge of his thoughts or what others think of him you’d see different responses. Look at the behaviors of Bush, Cruz and Rubio when they engage with him. Very different. Trump is a champion boxer taunting his opponents. He knows he will win!

He calls his opponent out and names the round. His attitude – he is unbeatable. Personally, if he lost, I don’t think it would bother him much. I don’t know, but he seems unflappable. Trump may even be a narcissist. That isn’t a good and YOU don’t have to be. The quickest way to the top may not be the nicest. You don’t have to not be nice to get ahead BUT the easiest way to the top is through being nice.

By working with others you succeed! There are lot’s of examples of wonderful people who are powerful. Make it a point to begin by being the best inside and you will be the best. Be nice, loving and kind inside and you will radiate it outside. Be a success in your mind and you can be a success in your life and you business. Take charge of your attitude. Think winner and you can be a winner.

Even, if I am totally wrong, you must agree that it has to be better to think ‘I am a winner’ than thinking consistently that you are a loser. So step up the game inside you. Be the boss of you. I suggest being a benevolent one, but a boss none the less. Keep your promises to yourself and others. Trump didn’t make it on his own, even if he tells you that. Others helped. With Trump it began with his dad.

A Rising Tide Floats The Whole Boat And All Those In It

It takes collaborating and negotiating to get ahead. Even the worst examples of the most successful need others to get ahead. They may not acknowledge them or give them the credit they are due, but they would not have made it without collaborations and partnerships. So model and adopt the finest qualities and characteristics and leave the not so nice ones alone. Find the best and leave the worst.

One of the finest books to read and re-read is ‘Think And Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill. In it he discusses the need for having certainty, being unstoppable, making your dreams come true AND how it is easier and more likely when you cultivate a winning personality, add value to others and go the extra mile first. Your wealth and your value will be determined by how many people you help in life.

Celebrate and co-operate with those around you. Read the book, if you haven’t. Re-read it if you have! You can be, do and have anything you want. If you can conceive it and believe it you can achieve it because we become what we think about day in and day out. You attitude does determine your altitude! Become unstoppable. This blog post isn’t really about Trump or the candidates. It isn’t meant to be political. It is all about you, me and who we become. Be the best you, you can be! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
