“All this took time. People want it to happen instantly, be patient, hang in there, have faith and know that it will happen. Perhaps, not instantly, but it will happen when you persist. As Epictetus, said, “No great thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.” Keep this in mind and embrace the wisdom AND make your dreams come true!” Rex Sikes
“The other side of walking up hill is walking down hill.
Sometimes things are tough and some times they are easy. Much of it depends on what you make of it and what you focus on.
When you focus on the beauty that surrounds you and you make a point of enjoying the journey, while getting to your destination no matter what, it is a worthwhile use of your time.
You will make it. Keep going and enjoy it all. Hardships give way.
Challenges make us stronger. Pleasant moments inspire us. All of these come and they go. You determine how you travel your path.
Why not make it glorious no matter what? Because you can. It is all up to the attitude you venture out with. Attitude IS everything.
Find the wonderful moments, the wonderful people and things to enjoy and appreciate and you will discover more of these along the way. You attract like thoughts, like things and people. You will attract positive circumstances and events into your life when you have a positive attitude.
SO find the very best and you get more of the best. As you focus on great thoughts, positive thoughts, beautiful thoughts you become these. Your fill your mind and being with the good things, the good thoughts, and joyous feeling. When you do this you will learn that you can keep these no matter what the pathway is like. You can find your strength and your peace and your joy no matter what life offers you.
You may not be able to choose what path always walk on, you may find yourself somewhere you hadn’t expected but your attitude determines your experience of the path. How you travel it is always up to you.
Enjoy the adventure and explore!” Rex Sikes
We might as well face it our present reality comes from our past thinking. What we have already sowed is what we have reaped. But we can decide to make our life what we want it to be. Plant the best positive thoughts into your subconscious and nourish that with repetition and emotion so that one day you have the best. Our thoughts today become our future. Change your thoughts, your thinking and you change your life. It is your choice. Do nothing or do something.” Rex Sikes
“Positive things happen when you think positive because you take charge of your thinking.
You put yourself in the driver seat and you steer yourself in positive productive directions hence you get to where you want to get to because you know where you are going and you are responsible for getting there.
Because you take control of your thoughts you make good things happen. You become a powerful positive force. Good things happen when you control your thinking in this fashion.
You have a choice to either think positive “I can do it!” thoughts or you could think negative “I can’t do it thoughts” because this is the only real choice their is. Either positive or not positive.
Which every you decide to think about determines the quality of your life. Either way you get in your life what you think about consciously or not consciously. Whatever your predominant thoughts and attitude is is what you experience.
Whatever you focus on expands. What you think about most of the time each day is what you get. Whatever seed you plant is what will grow. Whatever you water and nourish will grow. You get the results you go after so think positive thoughts and get positive results.
Take charge of your own thinking and start getting the good things you want in your life. You can BE and you can DO and you can HAVE anything you want in life when you realize that you are the one who creates it. No one else. While it is true you must work co-operatively with others and get along to get enjoy getting along and to succeed in life all things begin with your thoughts. Positive or Negative. It is completely up to you. It is up to OUR thinking.
What will you decide to think about today?
If you aren’t managing your thoughts, if you aren’t controlling your thoughts and directing your thoughts toward the results you want then your thoughts are running wild and they are managing, controlling and directing you.
Whatever you currently have in your life is a result of your previous thinking. What you enjoy tomorrow will depend on what you begin doing today!
Find the very best things to think about. Look around find the beauty, the joy, the abundance. Look for simple things, small things to appreciate. Find big things too! Determine to thing “I can Be what I want to be” “I can DO anything I determine to learn to do” “I can HAVE anything I want as I apply myself and work towards it”
If you don’t do these things, they are not likely to happen. Thought precedes creation, thought precedes action. There is a quote by Van Gough “I dream the painting then I paint my dream”. It all begins inside us. What we get on the outside originates within.
Ralph Waldo Emerson stated “DO the thing and you will have the power.”
So please remember for yourself -Good things happen when you control your thinking in this fashion.” Rex Sikes
I thought I would include an audio blog for all of us to enjoy. For those who do not know I do an internet radio show Movie Beat in which I discuss with professional filmmakers how they do what they do and how we all can enjoy better success. Well, one day my guest did not show, so I decided to share some of the incredibly valuable positive approaches I know and use.
The show is very popular and this episode extremely popular – please listen and enjoy. There is some explanation prior to getting into the topic. My talk was all extemporaneous, utilizing the moment, as an opportunity to share the wealth of this great material.
Hope you enjoy. Hope you enjoy this blog. It would be great if you leave comments when able and share this blog with your family and friends. Follow because more great things are to come.
“Some people ask me: Why I stayed to be with my children and raised them from birth instead of going back home?
Because the time is well spent. My children are a gift to me and this world. I am so blessed.
Whether there are delights, issues, illnesses, whatever life brings, time spent with my children is a wonderful gift to me and I believe to them.
I choose to stay, after the divorce, and raise my kids, to be a full time DAD, and to spend every available moment I can with them. From birth to present, all this time they have been growing up.
I love being with my kids!!! Some day i will face that empty nest, but I have none and will have no regrets.
I will have all the memories and magical moments I savored through the years to keep me company. That is all worth every second! YES, I am glad I decided to be with them.
Each second I am around and with these amazing young humans has contributed to me in so many incredible ways. I am so lucky.
My children are wonderful people. I am blessed and gifted to have them in my life and to be in theirs. Life is absolutely grand and I couldn’t be happier. I am please with who these kids have been, who they are and who they are becoming.
I only hope that someday they are as happy about being together as I am. At least they will always know I loved them, I cared for them and I was absolutely dedicated to them, without any question. If they can feel that their DAD loved them, believed in them and enjoyed them so much that he wanted to be with them, in good times and not so good time, come what may, no matter what, perhaps, this knowing will warm their hearts and comfort them in troubled times.
I’m glad I did!!!
I love my kids, I am blessed. ” Rex Sikes
