How Your Self Talk Affects You Good And Bad!

“Happiness is a left brain function. It is directly tied to what you say to yourself on the inside. Speech is left brain, too. We’re as happy as our self talk is happy and positive. We’re as happy as our thoughts and pictures. We’re as happy as the story we routinely tell ourselves.

We think in pictures more than words. ‘A picture is worth 1000 words’. We make pictures, both inside and outside of our awareness, and describe those images. We also describe what we experience and make internal images.  Words bridge the inner and the outer.

That’s why we create what we think and speak. Importance has been given to our words as a creative force from ancient times. Words are used to describe our mental blueprints. We translate an idea into action, for ourselves and for others, through the words we choose.

What You Say Is What You Get – Control Your Self Talk

The stories we tell ourselves are important. They affect us! We need to tell ourselves better stories if we want our lives to improve. We need to speak more kindly to ourselves, silently and out loud. We need to monitor and improve our self talk, and our talk to others.

You bring about what you think about. What you focus on expands. What you see, say and feel IS what you get. You either reinforce the crap in your life by your thoughts, words and deeds or you make things better by your thoughts, words and deeds. It’s mindset first!

If you’re feeling crappy you’re imagining things as crappy. You’re seeing crappy things inside and out AND saying crappy things to yourself and others. That’s why you feel crappy. You deserve better! You can change all that, by changing what you’re doing inside!

What You See Is What You Get – Visualize Only Positive Good

When you do have positive, mental images and nurturing self talk you feel good. Positive feelings arise. You can also create positive feelings, by making positive mental images and self talk, deliberately. This is called visualization and affirmations. See, speak and hear!

Every day, deliberately imagine what you want for yourself. Imagine the good you desire, as if you already have it. Affirm and declare it with words and your physical energy. Feel it, Be passionate and emotional about it. Enjoy it! Be thrilled and eager. Savor it!

Command yourself to be who and what you want to be. Imagine and feel that. Every day, see it. Command yourself to become that. Affirm that you are it. Declare it done! On the inside, live it. Make it real. Walk it about, live it in daily life. Act as if. Imagine fully. Get it?

What You Feel Is What You Get – Feel Your Best – Act As If

Repeated visualizing and affirming get your mind to work for you instead of you working for it. Make things happen. Get control over those words you already are saying to yourself. Stop talking about what you don’t want. Only affirm what you DO want to reinforce.

PAY ATTENTION to your words. Speak ONLY to bless, heal and prosper. Make them positive. The words you use are powerful, so use them wisely. Use everything you have in a positive and powerful way. Practice gratitude. Be delighted in the process and your progress. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Need To Know About The Dark Times!

“Darkness is necessary for growth, as is sunlight. Everything has a season. Tides come in and go out. Life changes. People change. Nothing is written in stone.  It is all physical, mental and emotional processes. Process implies movement and movement is change.

Never give up. Even if you did nothing at all, ever, you would change. That is nature. That is the nature of life. Everything changes given enough time. Nothing is permanent. Everything is in flux at some level. You may or may not notice it but everything moves. Atoms.

Thoughts are simply those things you think. They are not you. They are something you do from habit. You may not like the thoughts you think much of the time. You may not like the results of your thinking. Still, habits can be changed. You can change your thinking! You!

Energy Isn’t Created Or Destroyed – Energy Is Transformed

Take control. It can be instantaneous, mostly it is by step by step. You change inch by inch, foot by foot, yard by yard, mile by mile. It is incremental. It seems slow at first but it gets faster as you go along. The more you do, the more you are able to do, and more easily.

You get better at it. So, know this: you can, and will, always get through, and beyond, any troubling issue. It may not seem like it but you can, if you decide to. It is difficult to see connections projecting forward. You can’t. You can only connect the dots looking back.

You can’t connect dots looking forward. Moving forward you need to decide, plan, take action and move. You go a far as you can see and when you get there you can see farther. Looking back, you may find the meaning of troubling situations BUT, in reality, all are blessings.

Focus On What You Have To Gain – Not On What You Give Up

Learn to practice gratitude for the past. Be grateful for every bit, all past. You may say, ‘but, but’. BUT do it. Learn to appreciate all the hard, dark, even terrible moments. You got through them. That was then. What did you, what could you, learn from the past?

It is no longer! Don’t carry the baggage from the past. Look back and see it how it brought you to now, this moment, where you can change your thoughts about it, and transform your life for the better. Feel gratitude for the past. Be thankful for the present, this moment.

Feel blessed for all of it, then and now; every moment, person, event and circumstance. Expect to be blessed in the future. Unexpected good will come your way, Feel gratitude for the future. You will be different. That moment passed, this moment, too will pass.

If You Want All Things To Change Faster – Change Yourself

You will always land on your feet. Expect to. Expect unexpected good. Realize, it mostly goes how you think it will; what you think it is. It becomes what you say it is; how you define it determines what you pay attention to. It is the gospel according to you. It’s yours!

What you focus on, you get. Thoughts are things. Still, you can change from negative to positive. You never have to remain stuck. Things change! Learn to think differently about anything. You can learn to feel differently, too. It is whether or not you choose to.

Moving your body, changing your physiology changes your mental and emotional state.  Exercise and hard physical work has been prescribed for depression and anxiety since ancient times. Everything can change, if you are willing. You can make it better.

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

Move, go for a walk. Change your thinking. Focus on what you want, not on the problems. Practice gratitude. Feel the gratitude. Stay with it. Focus on it, again and again. Read inspiring materials. Surround yourself with positive people and messages. Affirm your power and visualize the good, again and again. It gets better! Especially, when you celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Break A Board Or Brick With Your Mind!

“When a martial artist focuses on breaking a board or a brick with their hand they have a special focus. They do not focus on their hand hitting the block because that would hurt. Instead they focus on where their hand is after it goes through the object. Important note!

In their mind they imagine the end result. Their hand has passed through the board or brick successfully. Their hand is in the finished position, complete and intact. They are successful.  They imagine this while facing the obstacle. They visualize being successful first!

Prior to breaking the board or brick they see it in their mind, FIRST. They imagine succeeding while looking directly at the ‘impenetrable’ object. They face the solid obstacle and they manage their fear and their doubts. They take charge and manage their emotional state.

Those Who Break Through Barriers Are Those Who Ignore Limits 

They believe, with certainty, they will succeed and overcome. They will be successful. They must believe this or they will stop the moment they hit the object and possibly hurt their hand. They manage their mindset, their emotions, their fears and their doubts.

They visualize succeeding! When ready they take full action.  When finished they celebrate their success in reality. Get it? This is what we do when we manifest. This is how we create our future. We see it now. We manage our state and we take action. Get it? Do you?

They harness and manage all their energy and resources. They are concentrated. They are deliberate. They are intentional. They have set an intention to successfully break through the brick. Energy flows where attention goes. Their energy goes to beyond the brick.

Life Has No Limitations Except The Ones You Make And Believe

They don’t put their energy into the obstacle but in going through the obstacle safely, and successfully. They know in advance they will prevail, they will succeed. Their energy is focused on what they can do and not on what they can’t do or how hard it will be. Get it?

You can learn to do this too. You don’t have to break boards or bricks but you can smash through any obstacle that has held you back and you can make your dreams come true. You can learn to succeed at anything. You can become happier, healthier and wealthier.

Would you like to? Say ‘yes’ if this is true for you! It requires learning new habits. It requires dedication and mental and emotional conditioning. I will help you. It requires study and preparation and taking action. Mindset and action are required. Prepare and do! Meanwhile, be grateful and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Not Doing This Literally Robs You Of Your Life!

“Everyday you are being robbed. That absolutely sucks. Has anyone ever taken anything that belongs to you and not returned it. Not good, right? Every single day you are losing out.  Every day you are missing the mark and ending up with far less than you could have.

Each day you lose time. You lose energy. You lose opportunities that bypass you. Have you ever had an idea you thought was great, a money maker, but you didn’t take action on it. Someone else did and they enjoyed great success. Opportunities like that, may come once.

You may be reading the newspapers online and offline, articles on FB and more of the same, daily. You may be posting your displeasure and arguing with others. You may be viewing countless hours of video or attempting to get the very latest breaking news .

What You Read Has The Power To Change You 

You could be gossiping with co-workers and neighbors. Playing online games and gambling. Perhaps, you run down to the casino every few days to try your luck. Perhaps, you are reading trashy romance or popular novels one after the other. It doesn’t matter.

There are lots of ways to spend time.  It is important to feel good. Some things make us feel really good, which IS really good. Other things distract us from feeling not so good. They are ok. They bring pleasure and guilty pleasure but they are a substitute for good.

These distract us from ourselves and from our life. We can never get our time back. Ever! Wasting time robs us! So, how we spend our time, should be a priority for each of us. It is probably an accurate statement, that you could make better use of your time.  Am I right?

Reading Can Change Your Thoughts – Your Words – Your Actions

If you want to change, and transform yourself and your life into the best it can be, then there are things you need to do, that help you do that. One of these is reading. Reading inspirational and motivational books. Not just any book that comes along but some of the classics.

You’d be better served if, daily, you spend your time reading Napoleon Hill, Ernest Holmes, Wallace Wattles, Neville Goddard, David Schwartz, Joseph Murphy, Norman Vincent Peale, Dale Carnegie, and Abraham Hicks. Feed your mind some positivity.

Get some positive nutrition. Don’t get pulled down into the fray, rise above. Do some daily mental conditioning. If you could read for an hour each day that would be wonderful. If you think you can’t, then read whatever you can. 30, 20 15, 10, 5 or even a minute. Get it?

Your Life Does Not Get Better By Chance – You Change It

How you spend your time is crucial to your happiness and success. The more time you spend feeding and conditioning your mind for positive thoughts and enjoying positive feelings, the more positive actions you will take, that lead to positive outcomes and results.

Get it? Read these books and let them inspire you and direct your mind. Why read? Because when you do you use your imagination. You visualize and can picture yourself happy and successful. You affirm. You think, ‘I can do that!’ ‘I will do that!’ You use your mind.

Stop robbing yourself and start caring for yourself. You have to value your time and energy and how you use your mind and feelings.  Put an end to distractions that rob you. Instead, put your mind to good use. You never get back the time you waste! NOW, is the only time.

It Is Important To Think Positive And Feel Good Most Of Your Time

Remember, the more time you put your mind to better use, the more likely you are to get the good results and have the lifestyle you desire. Spend time feeling good. Use your imagination. Affirm your happiness!  You’ll feel happier and more successful as you do.

You’ll get further, faster, when you spend your time, filling your mind daily, with good, positive, reading material. Utilize  this blog as part of your regime. Spend time being inspired and feeling grateful. Practice appreciation for everything in your life. It will change you. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

This Determines Whether You Stay The Course Or Drop The Ball!

“Will you make it or will you flop? What will be the end result, success or failure? Is there anything you can do to make success more likely? Will you succeed or won’t you? What do you think the answer to that question is? Your success depends on your answer.

It begins, within us, as an idea we conceive of. From within, we move it, to without. We translate the idea into reality. We think, take action and get results. Napoleon Hill said, ‘What the human mind can conceive, and bring itself to believe, it can achieve.’  So we can.

Hill stated, he would not say, ‘we will achieve’ because he had no way of knowing what each individual will do or not do. Some will take action and do it. For others, it will remain a nice quote. Whether or not we succeed is up to each of us. You and I are responsible.

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

You must become unstoppable. Persist in spite of any odds. Stay committed to your goal. Remain certain you will prevail. Developing and maintaining certainty is one of the secrets. So, how does one become certain? You must develop faith in yourself. Here’s how.

The process of conceiving or imagining and creating has been called ‘out picturing’. Out picturing is what allows us to manifest what we want in the outer world. It’s a fairly good description. We picture on the inside and make it happen on the outside. We out picture.

A couple of times, recently, I referred to the sculpting process.  The end result is the out picture the sculptor envisioned. To create we must remove any resistance. Much of what rises to prevent us, are our own doubts and fears. Our limiting beliefs must be dealt with.

What You Consistently Hold In Your Mind Is What You Experience

We must replace non-supportive beliefs with supportive ones. We replace limited, ‘I can’t’ thinking with ‘I can’ thinking. We do this by exposing our minds to positive material; through daily reading and listening to inspiring and motivating material. We feed our minds.

We remove limitations through reciting our affirmations, daily, numerous times, aloud, with positive, enthusiastic emotions and feelings. We use cadence, similarly to how the military uses it. We hang around with other positive ‘can do’ people. We do workshops.

We attend events. We go to recognition ceremonies and notice, those who succeed, so we can begin to think,’ if THAT person can do it, I CAN do it!’ We visualize our success and we feel as if we have already succeeded. We use the ‘act as if’ principle. All this helps.

You Life Is A Living Reflection Of What You Are Out Picturing

We keep our eyes on the prize. We clear our minds of all distractions and negative thinking by sharpening and maintaining our focus. You maintain a vivid mental picture of what it is you want. A vision board helps greatly. Keep pictures and reminders around. Look at these.

The personal goal, besides succeeding, but in creating that success, IS TO REMAIN positive about the inner world goals you have, regardless of what you encounter in the outer world. This is the secret key, no matter what you encounter, stay the course. Believe!

Remain confident. Feel certain you will accomplish your goal no matter what the universe hurls at you. The person who can do this is the person who does arrive. Release your attachment to the physical world. Let go of the outer resistance, as well as, the inner resistance.

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

The sculptor removes whatever is not the sculpture. The sculptor chips away at the stone to release the visualized creation from within. The medium may be difficult but, through belief and persistence, the sculptor unleashes and realizes the goal. We do too.

Understand that the picture in your mind, and the positive feeling you have for it, are real! What you encounter in the world is what you encounter. HOW you respond is what makes a difference! Some buckle and whine, complain and excuse. Others make it happen.

What will you do? Can or will? It’s completely up to you! That’s why Hill said, you can achieve it, if you will conceive it and bring yourself to believe YOU are able to.  Condition yourself for success. Remove the obstacles of your own thinking and feeling. Make it happen!

Condition Your Mind For Success Daily And You’ll Breakthrough

Gratitude is one of the most important means to a successful conclusion. Learn to live in, and with, and express gratitude moment to moment. Fill yourself with awe and wonder and thanks. When you do all of life transforms because you transform. So celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

What You Hold In Your Head You Can One Day Hold In Your Hand

“What we hold in our head, we can some day hold in our hand. That is a statement you may or may not be familiar with. It means we bring forth that which we picture or imagine. Without a definite plan or image we drift, results and life are haphazard. Who knows what?

So we create a strong internal image of what we want to create and focus on it daily. We make daily concentration on our image or goal a habit. This informs and trains our subconscious, our treasure chest of resources and hidden abilities, we want to make THIS happen.

Then we take the steps necessary to create it. Recently, I wrote that a sculptor gets an idea, gathers the materials, fashions the medium into the final end result. The sculptor creates it. It is the same with each of us. We concentrate on our goal and translate it into reality.

Visualizing Is Daydreaming With A Purpose

Focus daily on what you want. It can’t be a whim, it must be intense. You must be passionate about it or you won’t make it happen. Vision boards are good. It’s a poster with pictures on it of what you want to create. Put pictures on the dash of your car to remind you.

Pictures, drawings, photos around the house or work space that bring your attention back to what you want to create. Journal about it. Carry with you and read your goal statement at least twice a day or more. These help put your attention on it. Visualize it 5 minutes.

Energy flows where attention goes. Focus on your goal, intensely. Imagine being it, doing it, and having it already. Enjoy and enhance those feelings. Be grateful for this. Believe you can make it happen. Be certain you will do it. Certainty, comes in time. It really does.

Fill Your Mind With Positive  Pictures And Your Life  Will Change

If you don’t already feel certain about it, stay with it. You will develop the certainty over time. Do it! It comes through daily commitment.  Delight in the creative process. Be glad you are a creator. Take charge. Make it happen. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

The Secret To Transforming Your Problems Into Opportunities

“When times are difficult many people struggle with fear and worry. They imagine dastardly, negative scenarios, again and again, in their head. There is a way to move past this and get relief. Instead of derailing oneself, there is a means of getting back on track.

When troubled by people, events and circumstances, one of the useful things you can do is ask yourself, ‘What is the worst that can happen?’ Granted this sounds like a question you might want to avoid but it is important to consider. ‘What is the worst’?

Why on earth do you want to ask that? Because most people already see bad things. They imagine the world crumbling around them. What they don’t see is the ultimate bad thing. The reason you want to this is because, typically, the worst thing never, ever happens.

Don’t Let What You Fear Interfere With What You Are Able To Do

It just doesn’t. They simply live in worry and fear. They perpetuate the difficulties by focusing on them. Worry is actually negative programming. People program their minds. The more you worry and fear the more likely you are to bring those things about. Quit it!

Someone once said, everyone should go through bankruptcy. Again, why on earth wish this for anyone? Because, when you go through it you realize life isn’t over. People who are bankrupt still have a place to live, a car to drive, places to go, things to do and enjoy. They do!

It isn’t over! WE tend to think it will be, but it isn’t. I’ve had numerous friends go bankrupt and while not pleasant always, their lives did not change much. There may be some exceptions. For most who go through it, they  learn it is not as bad as thought, prior to it.

There Aren’t Obstacles In Your Path – Obstacles Are The Path 

When you deliberately ask, ‘what is the worst that can happen’ usually, you discover whatever ‘the very worst thing is’ you still survive. You are still okay, and you can, if you worked at it, handle it. Life isn’t over because of your imagined fears and worries.

They loom larger in the mind when not confronted. Once confronted the sting is gone. YOU took out the sting. You reduced the mountain to a mole hill. NOW You can break the problem down into bite size, manageable, steps or tasks, you can more easily and readily resolve.

It is the imagination running wild that is the difficulty. Gain control. Reign it in and you can again be on your way to being more productive and happy. You can resolve most any problem this way. Most of us, fear things that will never, ever happen. Stop it. Let go.

Strength Comes From Overcoming You Worries And Fears

Take control of your thoughts. Then you take control of your feelings. Yes, there are other things you may also do. I have discussed these in previous blogs. Read through and find them. I could share where but it is good to study and reread. It benefits.

Anytime confronted by problems consider them blessings and be grateful. This powerfully transforms them quite quickly. You don’t fear or worry about blessings and good things do you? Problems are their to teach you something and for you to discover what that is.

They are roadblocks slowing you down, to get your attention, so you can learn to be a better you. Be grateful. Be thankful. Feel truly blessed. Inside the obstacle is the seed of opportunity. You may have to look to find it, but that is why the obstacle is there. Trust. Let go. Enjoy. Delight. Feel blessed. Everything transforms when you celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
