We Get What We Are Focused On – Are You Focused On Success, Or Not?


I am a fan of what I call Power Thinking.

Power Thinking means you take control of the mechanism between your ears and use it to create what you want. You already have been using it but not deliberately or in your own best interests. Most of us just use it quite sloppily and we need to use it with precision instead. When we control our thinking we have power.

People drift because they don’t know what they want. Or half the time the are focused on what they want and then the other half they are focused on what they don’t want. This is like saying, ‘I want to go to NYC’ and moving in that direction only to say ‘actually I want to go to L A’ and moving back toward L A only to say ‘nope NYC’ and then ‘L A’ then NYC and LA then NYC and then L A. Face it none of us would get very far and it might be very frustrating.

This is why we must determine what we must have, what is really important for us in life and have a deadline for when we want it. We focus on what we want in spite of all odds and we keep the faith that we will make it happen. We stick with it. determined to see it through and we will. Sometimes sooner than the deadline sometimes after the deadline but if we don’t stop until we have it our success is guaranteed…’

I absolutely know that if I want a glorious future I must make my present glorious. That is positive thinking. That relies on powerful thinking.

Magical thinking is hoping that in the future, some how, circumstances will change and everything will be better. Magical thinking is putting the power outside of us and into or onto someone or something else for change to occur. I don’t believe in that magic, I believe in me.

If I want a glorious future it begins right now. It begins with what I pay attention to and nurture. I know if I want to be healthy in body I am more likely to experience well being now and in my future when I eat right and maintain healthy habits. If I fill my body with junk and toxins I may have more problems and difficulty. I believe in maintaining nutritious and healthy mental habits too.

they can because they think they can

Whatever we feed grows. I want to feed myself the healthiest food and healthiest mental food I am able. This is how I am preparing for the future.

When I eat well I expect to be healthier and sure enough I see some results. The same applies to my mental menu. I choose the finest, the healthiest thoughts to ingest, digest and benefit from. I liken my mental regime to maintaining a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise. If you want good physical health you make it happen by what you do. The same applies to our mental and spiritual well being.

Simple enough? Here is an example, consider the tightrope walker.

The tightrope walker is better served by paying attention to what needs to be done and where the walker wants to go. I believe the walker gains confidence in the abilities learned and maintains an attitude of ‘I can’ walk the tightrope.

While falling is a possibility I do not believe the walker would walk out on the rope if the mind was filled with thoughts and fears of walking. The walker maintains a positive focus when on the tightrope just as we should do in life. The positive focus helps us do whatever we need to do to get wherever we want to go.

tightrope walker

Surely, wonderful things can and do occur as do the less than glorious. These may go on anyway without my involvement because life happens. I know this. I have decided to design my life and not be bothered with what I am not able to control. I take responsibility for me.

If you are focused on what you want at least you know where you want to go and what you want to have. If that is what you think about,  and see or pay attention to mostly then you have a target to go after. Knowing where you want to arrive at means you can make and work a plan to get there. Knowing when you want to get there is most useful too.

If you think about what you want and then sometimes think you will never have it, you have returned to thinking about lack and you are drifting. You are headed out in both directions and you can’t get to both places at the same time.  You are NYC, L A, NYC… you are doing and undoing. You must be targeted and consistent.

Can we be 100% positive 100% of the time? I don’t know. I live by the statement ‘we get and we become what we think about MOST of the time’. So what are you thinking about most of the time?

What do we mean by most? if it is positive 51 / negative 49 probably you are stuck. If you are  90 / 10 you are probably well on your way with a wonderful life. Do you get it? Where is your thinking MOST of the time?

The good news is you begin by monitoring it. You think positive and then notice you are not so you adjust and return to positive. You steer back to center and the more you think positive and return to positive you develop the habit. Your ration improves by practice (positive repetition) through time. You get better at positive thinking by doing it repeatedly, duh!!!

So results manifest later, down the road. You are creating in darkness and can not see what is out there yet,  but you have initiated the process. NOW is the time to stay with it no matter what. This is why there is so much talk in religious text about faith and maintaining your faith.

change what is going on within you

Keep the faith while the planted seeds grow. In time, and no one knows how much time, the seeds you planted will be ready for harvest. Then you will be delighted but not surprised. You will not be surprised because you expected this day to come. You declared it so and you helped it come into being. You knew you would get there because you stuck with getting there. No matter what came up to take you off course you corrected and continued to move toward it.

Positive thinking is about knowing what you want and where you want to go in life.

The first step in thinking positive is to set a definite well defined goal that is extremely  important to you.  It should be a goal you are passionate about and want more than anything.

Once you have this goal you are passionate about you  develop and maintain the mindset, the attitude, and the abilities to go after that goal to accomplish it. By staying focused on the positive you are able to get what you want with greater ease, in spite of all challenges or disappointments along the way.

As I have repeated emphasized: Positive thinking means staying the course through all hardships that may arise and never quitting.  You maintain positive thoughts to set a frame of mind to better be able to navigate life. It means keeping your mind set healthy so that you feel well enough and strong enough to handle any challenge. Staying positive is about having a powerful attitude.

winners never quit

When you think positive you feel better. When you feel better you more apt to do better. Positive thinking IS about creating and accomplishing what it is you want.

When you are positive about getting your goal you know it is possible and you expect it to happen. Once you expect it to happen, you know it will happen, you align you thoughts and feelings and actions

Positive thinking IS about finding a mindset that serves you well and helps you to feel better. The higher quality your thoughts the better you feel. The better you feel the more you can do” Rex SIkes

Rich Successful People Make This Decision – When Will You?

forget why it wont believe why it will

“I realized I really needed to change my thinking and what I focused on. I now realized and accepted  that I was already responsible for creating my life. I am, was and will always be a creator.

It was no longer a matter of whether I was or was not creating my life I now decided that I was. This decision put me in a place of power. This decision allowed me to declare myself the victor. From this power position I could begin solving my problems and start getting different results!

I clearly recognize my part in creating what I did not want in my life. I began to understand how my thoughts and feelings, my beliefs and attitudes, my actions and lack of them brought about my circumstances good and not so good.

I understood that when I worried and anticipated problems I made life less than glorious. I could see how I caused my own difficulties and got in my own way. I could look back and see how I was responsible for everything I had and did not have.  All of it was because of me.

I saw how I drifted and had not created any master plan for my career or my life.

determined to help yourself

I loved the past and longed for the good old times but knew nothing about the future. I meditated a lot and wanted to be present, whatever that might be, so I did not bother to plan where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. Like a cork bobbing on the water I went wherever the current went. I had no actual purpose.

Because I had only hopes and no actual plan for how I wanted the future to unfold I dealt with whatever came my way as I had to. I didn’t know any better way to think or be. Sometimes I was lucky mostly I was not.

When I had money problems I never thought I would resolve them easily I only focused on how I did not have enough at the time. I lived in a poverty consciousness wishing I’d strike it rich but mostly knowing I would not. I was not that lucky.

When I decided to master my fate and place myself in the position of creating what I wanted I recognized that I had been creating what I wanted or what I didn’t want all along!

It became super obvious that it wasn’t a matter of doing anything different really. It wasn’t a matter of becoming or adding anything different to me because I had always been a creator. I already was a creator! I just had really bad taste. I just didn’t know how to get the results I wanted to get yet.

if you want a different result make a different choice

WOW that hit me. I already was a powerful creator AND I was just really good at creating and attracting what I DID NOT WANT. WOW, I mean I was incredible at getting what I did not want. I knew I wanted to change this.

These powerful insights brought me to realize that I COULD change was the direction of my attention. I couldn’t stop the ship on the sea but I could aim it where I wanted to go from this moment on. I now knew that could not stop being a creator or powerful attractor but that I could MORE consciously decide to run and manage the creation process.

I could focus on what I wanted and ignore what I didn’t want! I could create a plan for the future and work that plan. YES! It meant I had to change the way I had been doing things! It meant I had to take control of my attention it and focus it in a different way! IT meant if it was going to be any different now and in the future I had to make it different. If I wanted my life to change I HAD TO CHANGE things in my life.

stop waiting and go out and make them happen

Once I understood that I was responsible for producing whatever I thought about most of the time I decided to think better thoughts. I made it a point to think in positive ways that served me better and brought me the results I wanted to have.

I let go of the past and focused on making the present and the future delightful and wonderful. I focused on abundance and prosperity instead of on lacking resources. I took control of my thinking processes and whenever I found myself slipping into old unproductive ways I steered my thinking back toward the positive.

I began to completely focus on what I wanted and not on what I didn’t. I focused on what I could be, what I could feel and what I could do rather than what I couldn’t. It made all the difference in the world. My life instantly began to transform as a result of making that decision.

Here is a key piece to understand. I made that decision not only once and for all on that day and hour but I continue to make it each and every moment.

to bring it into your life imagine it already there

Life is a process it is not a static thing. Learning to take control of our life and our thinking processes is not something that is static either. It is fluid and dynamic it. We have learned to think in patterned and habitual ways. We have automated ways of being that must be changed if we are going to live differently.

I realized I initiated a process of learning new ways to be and to create new positive habits. This meant sometimes there might be ups and downs, results may come faster or slower at times. Anything was possible yet I was ready willing and able to do whatever it took to master my new learnings and make my new habits serve me. I am still willing and I do whatever it takes to maintain it.

Rich people know how to make their money work for them. They may work hard at first but they get their money working for them so they don’t have to work so hard. In this way they can enjoy what their money brings them.

The rich and successful create, they build and they believe they that deserve the best so they get it. They are action and future oriented. They aim at the target they want and they go after getting it, They keep the positive end result that they want in their minds and don’t worry about what else might not be. They are focused on what they want. You and I can be too!

I adopted this analogy and found it to be an accurate example of the journey I was on. I may have to work hard to manage my thinking process at first but, ultimately, I would make it my servant and get it to work for me instead of against me. I deserve the best as do you!

This is the process I am in and am happy to report it is amazingly more simple than one might think it could be.

what u feel now is what u attract

Sure it has taken effort. No, it is not instantaneously an all perfect, over and done with event it is a process.

Through all of it I have recognized that if I want it to life to be different or better that I need to change some things I am doing to make it better. It is always only up to me!

I learned the power and necessity of staying focused on what I want and not on the present circumstances regardless of what they are. I look not to the present results but to what I am creating in my mind.

I now know that the focus needs to be on the inside with what I want to create and not on the outside present results. What comes about in the real world does so by the act of creating it and NOT by looking at what isn’t present yet and feeling disappointed.

It requires conviction and faith to know that, no matter what may be going on, the good things you are creating are set in motion and coming your way even if you are unable to see any evidence of it yet. This IS because we get what we focus on. What we focus on really does expand.

persistent get it consistent keep it

I continue to learn this each day. I stay focused on being thankful and I continue to learn the importance of perseverance, gratitude and enthusiasm.

I have learned that whatever you say you have is what you have. I have learned if you can hold it in your head you can hold it in your hand. Whatever you focus on you do become.

I am so delighted I discovered this for myself I can’t even adequately express it. Life has become a more marvelous adventure than I could have ever hoped for. I live by the mottos ‘if it is to be it is up to me’, and ‘we become what we think about most of the time’.

I feel so grateful I recognized this for myself. It has made all the difference in the world. So I wanted to share it.” Rex Sikes

May you find all the smiles you can today!

Why Successful People Win and Why You Don’t – What You Need To Start Doing

losers visualize penalities winners rewards

“The question for you now is will you take finally take responsibility for creating the results you want instead of living as if someone else is in charge of them? Will you take control of your own brain?

Well, what will it be? I had to make this decision. What about you?

Once you decide to start to shift your dominant thought balance to the positive then everything changes. You need to keep focused and maintain it. Your life will change for the better because most of your thoughts are better.

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thinking. Wherever you spend most of your time, there you are. Good or bad, positive or negative what your experience is like is completely up to you! Successful and happy people already know and do this.

failure is success in progress

When you finally take control everything does change but it still may take time. How quickly or slowly no one can predict.

I repeat myself, because through repetition we learn and we acquire habits. This is why re-reading is valuable but reading won’t change you. It can stimulate your thinking but it is by what you do that will change you. Success in all areas of your life can be yours.

You WILL have to stick with it awhile. It won’t happen overnight, at least, most probably, it won’t. So stop expecting it to happen fast and expect to be in there a while.

Still, expect it to happen sooner because you are organizing and focusing your energies to make it happen and  still be realistic about it. Everything in its season. Be patient and enjoy the journey.

The point I am attempting to make is yes, expect good, swift, positive results but at the same time plan to stick with it. In order to get and keep the results you want you are changing your life, re-organizing your thoughts, you aren’t dabbling. If you try it and stop you won’t get any further than you get when you quit. If you stay the course your results can be astounding!

success requires mindset

You have to keep the faith and maintain the practice for as long as it takes.  No matter how long it takes  you will go through it better and faster when you know you that you are able  to and you do what you need to.  It will take much longer if you fight it, hate it, mope about it  or cave into it. Again, be patient and enjoy the journey.

As for challenges and obstacles know this: ALL defeat is only temporary when you know that you will ultimately win. Resistance is what makes the kite soar and the airplane rise. Without resistance we wouldn’t grow or develop.

There is a reason for everything even if we don’t understand it. There is hot and cold, night and day, good and bad (judgements) rough and smooth, push and pull. Life is made up of opposites too. So don’t let difficulty concern you.

Sometimes the successful people loose all the money and assets. It is a tough time BUT because of their attitude they know they can build it again. After all they did it before now they may just have to do it again. Attitude IS everything. It matters. Those that fail are those who give up and quit.

garbage in out good decisions

It is time to stop being victim and become the victor. Live with confidence and the ability to learn to make successful changes and you will live powerfully.

Successful people stick with it. They don’t dabble and give up. They set their sights, aim at the target and go for it. They pursue success and they get. So much of it is mind set. They feel they deserve it, they feel success and good things belong to them, they believe they have everything it takes to make things happen. Attitude is everything!

They know their abilities and what they need to do to make things happen. They also know who to align with to create things together that they can do easier when partnered up. (more about this at another time).

There was that moment when finally I realized it was time for me to become the creator of my experience and to assume responsibility for ALL of it not just part of it. I accepted responsibility for the tough times, the easy times, the failures and the successes. Whether it is ultimately true or not I decided to accept responsibility for everything in my life and for the entire path of my life.


It doesn’t matter if this is the way things actually are or aren’t the decision brought me new found power and energy. I discovered that if I acted as if everything that I did or happened to me was a result of me and my thoughts I would make sure I would NOW focus on what I wanted.

No longer would I spend time or energy worrying about what I didn’t have or didn’t want I would steer my mind to what I could do and could accomplish. In my new decision came incredible power and control. I opened a powerful positive doorway and stepped through it.

I also recognized, just like the rich, the powerful, the happy and the successful people that I deserved all the great things in life. I recognize that there is plenty for all, and that I could use my mind and abilities to make my life what I always wanted it to be. I no longer had to live in lack or happiness poverty I could be rich in all ways.

never give up time will pass anyway

AND THAT that blew me away!

It is amazing. An entire new wonderful journey began and I find blessings in every day, come what may. After all it isn’t what happens to us but how we react or respond to what happens to us. As creator of my life if something less than glorious occurs I look for the good in it and how to make the situation better.

I have been training my mind to look for and find the good in everything. I concern myself with solutions rather than the problems and I find I have far fewer problems. There is much more joy, happiness and delight as a result.

If I can do this, and I mean this sincerely, if I am able to do this, ANYONE can!!! Certainly, you can! When it occurs to you that YOU can make your life so much more incredible than you can imagine right now, perhaps then you will do it. It is all up to you and the decision you make.

If you decide not to decide and put it off, or you decide not to, that is fine it is your decision. Things will be as they already are. However, should you decide to take control of your life, your thinking and your feelings, when you change your thoughts your life can change.

If you want your life to change you much change things in your life.”  Rex Sikes

What Successful People Do That You Don’t! How The Successful Move Ahead.

what you think about you bring about

“Your brain does whatever it learned to do. That is what a servo mechanism (remember this term from earlier posts) does. It carries out the program.

Whatever you  filled your brain with while you grew up, whatever your predominant thoughts are (remember we think 60,000 thoughts a day and most of them similar to those we thought yesterday) is what the servo mechanism produces.

If your thoughts are positive, if you plant positive seeds, you get back positive results. If your thoughts are negative, if you plant negative seeds then that is what you reap. Whether you do it deliberately and with conscious control or whether it is just whatever you normally have done, all of your life, you get back whatever your dominant thoughts are. Your servo mechanism, your unconscious mind, takes whatever you have given it and produces the results you get in life.

60,000 thoughts a day don't waste

Good or bad it is up to you.

Now here is a very important concept to understand and appreciate so that you don’t wallow in self blame. Whatever you did, whatever you got, wherever you are now, is the result of the only choices that you could make because you didn’t know any different at the time. You did what you knew to do. There is no shame in that.

‘Drifting’ means no choice, it means you exercise no deliberate control. If you don’t decide to run your brain your brain runs you. It does whatever it does. If you don’t determine where you want to go, if you don’t pick your destination, wherever you end up, however you end up there, is where you end up. You are like a ship with no power. You go wherever the current takes you.

This is why most people get haphazard results. They don’t take the time to learn how to take charge of their own thought processes. They don’t design their life or their career.

Oh sure they think about it but sometime positive and sometimes negative. They don’t know what seeds they are planting and they are mixing seeds. They are seeding nice plants, poisonous plants and weeds all at the same time. Half the time they feel okay and the other half of the time they feel poor.  So the results they get are mixed.

garbage in out good decisions

When we think powerful, energetically charged positive thoughts, again and again, we activate our servo mechanism to go after and produce those results. It is whatever we hold predominantly in our mind that we get back. We become what we think about most of the time. Are your dominant thoughts positive or negative? Which do you spend more time doing? This definitely matters.

Are you in control or has your brain been running you because you haven’t taken control yet? You need to be in charge to have the life you have always wanted. It is up to you and the choices you make. This is what separates the successful from those who are not.

Those who live happy lives and have marvelous careers, health, wealth and love are those who control their thoughts and feelings and create the results they want. The people who have everything they want in life and who are happy make it happen and rarely luck into it.

thoughts cycle to thoughts

The truly successful people design their lives. They make their thoughts, feelings and actions work for them. The aim at their goals and pursue them. They create, they target and they attract what they want.

Anyone can do this! We all are capable but only a few will. Only a handful of people will develop the powers we all have within us. The rest, because they do not know any better and are ignorant of the opportunity, scatter and dissipate their power. They do get results just not what they intend to. They are too busy and too good at creating what they don’t want by not choosing what they do want and going for it.

Everyone has the same power and the same ability, yet only few utilize it well. What about you? Do you want things different? Do you want to have a better life? I sure did and I was great at getting what I didn’t want. If I can change that so can you!

if you can dream it you can do it

You can get the same results for yourself when you take charge. When you take positive steps, as others have done, to make their life work yours will too. It is always in our hands to determine what our  present and future become.

Success breeds success. It gets easier and easier as you move along. You know what to do to get results and you do it. Challenges are only opportunities for feedback to adjust your plans as you pursue your goals.

This is what the truly successful people know and do. Why not you? Never let the past prevent you from creating, having and enjoying a remarkable present and an outstanding future!

Start and keep making good positive choices for yourself today and you can have everything you have ever wanted. EVEN if you don’t get everything (because I always think it is worth considering this next point) you make your life FAR MORE wonderful than it would have ever been. This is truly worth it. Don’t you think so? Make the decision today!” Rex Sikes

The Number 1 Decision You Must Make To Begin Getting What You Want


Remember this – how you travel  determines how you feel when you arrive at your destination. So make the most of each moment and feel wonderful no matter what is going on.

Can you do this? Yes!!! It can be difficult at first, especially, if you have never tried it before. If you lived all your life as a victim living as a victor will seem strange, unfamiliar and even difficult. You may even seem disoriented for a bit but it will pass.


You could experience a great sigh of relief as you finally take ownership for your life. Yes, it may be difficult at times but it is also absolutely delightful and worth it! You may actually feel relieved, as many do, when they make a positive decision.

You may feel very relieved that you no longer have to live the way you have been. It can be extremely freeing when you no longer have to settle for accepting whatever results you were getting.

When you finally recognize that you are a powerful creator and that you actually have been creating everything in your life all along you open up to incredible opportunity. You begin to fulfill your destiny.

you are responsible for your experinces

Once you actually accept that you are powerful and that you are always responsible for what you get then you begin to immediately transform everything about you and your life! When you ultimately recognize the role you play in creating your life you may very well embrace it swiftly and easily. After all, you have come into your own.

Not everyone does but they can.  Everyone is different and whatever time it takes for a person to adjust is the time it takes. There is no right or wrong amount of time.

We are not in a competition with anyone else. Some will move slowly others may move at a swifter pace.  It is whatever it is. Accept it, allow it.  Don’t resist it, don’t push.  It is whatever it is.

There is the saying, ‘When the student is ready the teacher appears’. Everyone is becomes ready at different times. Everything happens within certain time frames. ‘There is a season…’

When you decide to create your life, in that very moment, everything can begin to change. There is power in making that decision. You put into motion a very strong cause and for every cause there is an effect.

BUT keep in mind you may not yet see the new effects for a while. Who knows for how long?  What you are currently seeing are the effects of your previous ’causes’ – your previous thoughts.

its a slow process but quitting wont speed it up

Again, there is a season for everything so be patient, have fun, and relax while enjoying the positive new thoughts and the new life.

Do you get this?

You are always causing you world to be whatever it is. You have ALWAYS been doing this. Always.

YOU have always been doing THIS.

YOU are responsible for whatever your world is like. Whatever you have or don’t have is the result of your ‘unconscious’ efforts or lack of them.

You are either the captain of your ship or a drifter at sea. You are either the victor or the victim.You either create the results you get or your settle for whatever happens to come your way. This is what you must decided.

If you haven’t already at some point you must deliberately chose which one you are. At that very moment liberation happens. In that instant you become free to determine the present and the future you will have.

The difference, now, is that you recognize WHO is in charge.  YOU take responsibility to do whatever positive things you must do to create what ever it is you want. You take control of your thoughts and your feelings.


This puts you squarely in charge! From this place you can create whatever it is you want.  This is such exciting news because now YOU determine the results you get from this moment.  You know you are in charge of making it happen and this is a positive place of power!

Whenever the moment occurs for you IS the right time. Once you make the decision to own everything about your life  you become the premiere designer of your life!  Celebrate and delight when you make this decision because then you can consistently draw good things your way!

You can travel well along life’s roadways. It is important to know your destination (what you want) so you know where you are going to eventually end up.  It is important to realize the role you play in bringing all this about. It is equally important to determine how you want to get there.

Delight in the journey!  Make it fabulous and enjoy everything along the way. ” Rex Sikes

Powerful Tips You Can Immediately Use To Make Your Dreams Come True!


“…Believe in yourself and maintain you attitude. Focus each day on what you can think and feel and do to make your dreams come true. Avoid thinking about what you can’t do, don’t like or what is negative.  Find the good and new each day to celebrate and your life, your present and your future will transform! It may happen slowly, as already mentioned, but it will transform so hang in their…

…We become what we think about most often. What we focus on we get. We get back what we put out. We reap what we sow. Energy flows where our attention goes. So think and feel and expect the best and you will get more of the same…

(Continued From: What People Think That Makes Them Fail)

FOCUS on what you want to create and have and enjoy. Put your thoughts and energy into what you want to manifest for yourself and keep your thoughts on this. Imagine it in detail, as richly and fully as you are able. Spend time watching the movies of your mind in full color, vivid, with awesome sound. Enjoy these inner films of what you can and will be doing and having.

imagine believe and achieve

See yourself as you want to be. What positive attributes and characteristics do you embody? How do you look, stand and move  as you live your dreams? How do you sound? What do you say? Where are you? What are you doing? Who is with you? What do you have?

It is said, ‘If you can hold it in your head you can hold it in your hand’. Our inner thoughts create our present and future reality. So become the movie director of your inner motion pictures, make them compelling, fascinating, riveting, fantastic and so you get the future you want to have.

There may be no limit to what you can create that is wonderful for yourself. The only limits that exist are the ones you don’t explore going beyond. Anything may be possible. Think big, think strong positive thoughts and think these often each and every day and you will bring your dreams into being.

Take time to write and view and craft the future you and these inner movies. Make these as real as possible, focus on them and visit and watch them often each day. You will know you are on the right track when you run them in your head and you feel eager and excited.  You will know you are on the way to making it all happen when you think to yourself, this is mine! When you know you are going to have it.

a man becomes what he thinks about

There is a big difference between a wish and an expectation. On your birthday you know you will get a present or more. You expect it! You may hope of wish for something you want to get but you aren’t sure if you are going to get it. You hope so BUT you know you will get a gift!

When you begin to feel secure, when you know the future you are creating in your head IS yours that is the feeling you want to have. It is not a question of IF at all you know it is going to happen. This is what is meant by keep the faith, believe it is going to happen.

Napoleon Hill stated, ‘That whatever you can conceive AND believe you can achieve’. Countless numbers of people have been proving him correct through all time. Take time to conceive it, design it, make yourself believe it, make it your dominant thoughts and spend the bulk of your day and night positively engineering it and you will make it happen.

To get to the point you where you are absolutely convinced you will accomplish your goals you will have to spend time each day making them happen in your mind and body. Live them on the inside to bring them about on the outside.

You will have to live with it and spend much of your time there as you go about your daily activities.

in mymind I have always been A list movie star

I am not saying all your time is day dreaming. Nope, you spend your day making your day marvelous and feeling fantastic. You spend your day doing whatever you need to do while feeling grateful and enthusiastic. You go about your present life with a powerful, positive attitude and the unshakeable conviction that YOU are creating and manifesting what you want.

Once you learn how to transform your present moments and you do so you understand how to transform your future AND vice versa! It is an incredible benefit.

You make your present moments wonderful. Plus, you spend  portion of your day, after getting up and before going to bed, focused on what you want to bring into your life.  A half hour is not too much to ask. Bring your attention to these thoughts whenever you are able to during your day. You create your future. You travel where you want to go in advance of actually going there.

You make the future moments in your mind, the present, that time when you have exactly what you want. You live and breath your definite chief purpose AS IF you already do actually have it.

A useful exercise (proposed by a very knowledgable person, but I forget the source at this moment and will look for the person’s name) is to imagine it is the day after you make your dreams come true. Let’s say you wanted a large exact sum of money by a certain date, say… January 1st. It is now the 2nd of January and you are telling someone how you made it happen. You describe everything you did to get that money by that date. You relive it in detail.

what u feel now is what u attract

I added this next component and found it very helpful. You can even go further out, a week, a month, few months a year and even more then see in your mind and describe in detail how wonderful the experience is to have made your goal come true by that date AND then to have lived that lifestyle for this amount of time.

What did you become? What did you do since?  What do you have as a result that you would not have otherwise? What did you enjoy? What did you solve?  Where did you travel? Who have you met? HOw are you able to continue to bring about more positive changes? What are they? How has your life and others improved as a result of you taking charge? How wonderful do you feel? How incredible has your life become?

All these questions add depth, texture and nuance to your mental movies and are powerful to include.

The more vivid you are able to make it and the more wonderful positive enthusiastic energetic feelings you have as you think about it the more you impress all of it on your unconscious ‘servo-mechanism’.

when u want to succeed as much as you want to breath

Your job is to make certain all of you, your entire being, understands ‘This is who I am, what I am doing and what I am enjoying having!’

Think of it as a thought bank. Whatever you deposit in the bank you get back with interest. When you mostly put positive thoughts and images into the bank you will get positive interest back.

If you don’t deposit anything you don’t get a return. You drift.

If you deposit negativity, doubt, fear in the bank you get negative interest back. Whatever you deposit you will get back. Your mental movies and positive great feelings are what you deposit.

SO FIRST determine what you want to get back!

Many people neglect to do this. They do not think about what they are doing nor what they want to get in return. They drift. I know this because I did not do any of this for much of my life. I was an expert drifter when it came to setting goals. Sure I wanted things but I had no clue as to how to go about making them happen.

Keep the faith, focus on what it is that is positive, ignore the current results and keep moving toward what you desire. Make your present time the most marvelous time you are able because this is what you will end up creating. Your present condition becomes your future reality.” Rex Sikes

How To Get People To Help You Succeed

what u put out u attract

“When it comes to getting your goals and making your dreams come true you will succeed faster when you realize it is not only about you. This point is critical. The best approach to embrace is to realize that getting what you want is through becoming the best person you can be. It is really ALL about YOUR personal evolution.

Seek to evolve yourself. Aim for the highest. Apply the Golden Rule. Seek only to think thoughts and speak words and do actions that bless, heal and prosper everyone, including yourself. Become a creator who creates all good things, love, peace, kindness, generosity, enthusiasm, well-being, fun, delight, appreciation, co-operation and all other wonderful things.

Become a magnet and attract all these good things.  Attract the very best.

When you align all of your thoughts in this way with what it is you want to accomplish you are much more powerful. You make your present so much more wonderful and you are creating a future worth having.

I think the most important aspect of what I am sharing is this.

you are a living magnet

You become the change you need to become in order to create the positive life you want and to make what you want happen.

Recognize your role as creator and determine to create an incredible experience for yourself and others. Realize you are a magnet and determine  to attract that which brings joy to everyone.

Remember it is necessary to plant the right kind of seeds to get the crop (results) you desire. We become what we think about most of the time so think the finest positive powerful thoughts that benefit yourself and everyone else. Evolve into being the kind of person you would like to get to know.

It is NOT about the money or success, the career or the home, the car, the jewelry or whatever other things you want. Yes, you can get those but it truly isn’t about those ‘things’.

It is about becoming a person who lives abundantly and lives well. It is about becoming the kind of person who can easily make and attract the right kind of people, circumstances and the things, the cash or success into your life. It is about the who a person is not what the person has that is most important.

be the type of person you want to meet

It is all about the who you are and less about the what you acquire. Who you become determines what you do. What you do determines what you have.

If you are in it to win and to help others win, others will be attracted to you. You will radiate positive personal energy and helpfulness. You exude a willingness to cooperate and align efforts.

When you are positive and powerful and a nice person you have a truly winning combination. Those who can help you will be attracted to you because they recognize your winner mind set AND that you are a great person to be around. Remember, birds of a feather flock together. Like attracts like!

If on the other hand, you are ruthless and care little for others or their success, while you might get somewhere, the likelihood is there will be more difficulty keeping it and enjoying it. Yes, you may get ahead but at what cost?

To try to succeed by leaving others behind or stepping on them to get to the top will not serve you well in the long run.  You will get back what you put out. If not at first, eventually, because everything does take time. Keep in mind that the sun shines on the good person and the bad and it rains on both too. Seek to improve life for everyone and your life will improve much quicker.


When you radiate positive thoughts and energy you attract what you need to move forward. You become a beacon to other like minded and like spirited people. You are magnetically charged to attract the finest. When your thoughts are the best about others at all times you elevate yourself while holding others in high regard. You give out the best and in doing so you get back the best in return.

When we work together collaboratively and support each other there is a synergistic effect. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Everyone can enjoy success together. People who attract those of like mind and energy can create great things together. None of us ever actually make it all on our own. ‘No man is an island’.

Larger positive creations come about from collaborating with the right people. You can create more well being and accomplish more when you positively align with others who work for the same ends as you do than by yourself. Together you can build things you can not imagine doing alone.

It is is exciting to discover others in the world who think and feel the same. It is thrilling to align with them and create new good possibilities as you work together. When you radiate positivity you are able to attract people to you who have like desires in mind.

When you find good people who are  all aimed at creating the same outcome you can make it happen quicker than if you were to do it all alone. This is the basis of a mastermind group. I will only touch on this briefly for now and explore it further later on.

It is an incredible world to be positive in and to find other positive people to enjoy. Having wonderful people to associate with is a marvelous opportunity. It is okay to be picky but it is not okay to be snobby.

i am starting to attract the people around me

Chose your friends and associates wisely whenever you can but there is no need to put down or ostracize anyone else.  If you are really a positive person you won’t be bothered by someone who is not. It is just not the way you chose to be.

You don’t have to flee from negative people when you are powerful you just don’t let their negativity affect you. You can choose to spend most of your time with other positive, powerful, lovers of life whenever you are able. This is time well spent.

When you are filled with positive energy you attract powerful creators who share similar goals. What is positive energy? Thinking and feeling the very best. When you feel zest for life and little gets you down and you think and feel wonderful the preponderance of the time you are and have more positive energy. When you put it out there you get it back. Share it! RADIATE IT!

When you are feeling optimal you WILL be radiating it. You will be putting it out there. We are always radiating what is going on inside of us. We are always broadcasting our thoughts and feelings and attracting more of the same.

We can’t NOT be putting it out there. We are ALWAYS putting it out there. This is WHY it is CRITICAL to chose the best thoughts and feelings so that you start attracting back the best thoughts and feelings.

This is the reason why we CHOOSE to think and feel positive.  This is why if you are not happy with the results you have been getting you must change what you are doing inside. You must not focus on the thoughts you don’t like but on what you DO WANT to attract. It is important to understand this! Many don’t so they are confused as to why they aren’t getting everything they want.

In order to get what you want on the outside you first must create it on the inside. You must plant what you want and nurture it along in order to harvest it in the right time.

Get it? I hope so. It has took me forever to begin to understand and appreciate how things actually work.

think about good stuff

Positive energy is infectious for other positive people and can be uplifting for those who need a lift. At other times, negative people may just chose not to be around one who feels so good. That is okay, they may just need time to come around. Don’t be evangelical about anything or insist others change simply accept and allow for anything and everything. Allow each person to be who they are and do not judge them.

By allowing others to be who they are you are freer to be who you are. Isn’t that what you really want anyway, to be free. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be free to be who you are and to enjoy what you want when you want to? Others want the same.

When you are not in competition with anyone else and when you discover people who are on the same page it is absolutely delightful.You can even work towards getting the same results together. You can align and attain bigger results more swiftly than you may have gotten working alone.

This is important. When positive, powerful creators all want the same thing and work together co-operatively toward the same end  they may become  as if one mind. They can become a mastermind.

A mastermind group is a group of powerful positive creators who align their thoughts and efforts into making things happen that they could not do independent of each other. They are a valuable team and are incredible assets to each other.

They support each other in remaining positive and in and doing their very best.  They inspire each other to reach higher. They are their to remind and uplift each other at all times.

Whether or not you have an actual mastermind group to create a mutual dream you can still enjoy achieving better results when you have a positive support group to assist you. We are resources for each other.

Remember, this concept of a mastermind group is that the whole IS greater than the sum of the individual parts. You can be more imaginative and creative and bring about more good together than you may do by yourself alone.

do good and good will come to you

The bottom line is work for the success of all and all will help you succeed.

Create a wonderful life and attract wonderful people towards yourself. Help others do the same and together we do make our world more wonderful.  So seek first to transform yourself not others.

You will succeed faster if your thoughts are genuine about the other person. When you are sincerely interested in helping them you get back sooner. When their interests are in your heart and you are helping them with no expectation of return THEN magic will happen. It works best when you are doing it altruistically and not because you want something from them.

Be genuinely helpful and dedicated to others and they can and will be likewise towards you. While it is true some people take and do not give nor return in kind do not let that dissuade you from giving. Give for the sake of giving with no thought of yourself and you will get back from those who care. You will be rewarded in other ways from other people and the greatest reward of all – is that you did something great for nothing! Take note of that. You did something good just because you could! That IS magical!

Fill yourself with positive thoughts, feelings and energy, AND wish well and do good for all others in mind and deed and you will get back so much more you will hardly be able to believe.

As with everything it comes in time.

Transformation is a process that happens through time in the same way plants and animals and people grow up and older. Some things you may notice more quickly while other things seem to remain the same. It is all happening, trust in that, and you will eventually notice the magnificent differences. So hang in there. Keep the faith and believe.

The first order of business is to become the who you need to be to get the results you want. Enjoy the process. Celebrate and delight and you will see the fruits of your labors. Then Go First, think well of others, help them and add value to them in whatever positive way you are able. Do good and good will come back to you. Help them success and they will help you succeed. Be a positive cause!

For every cause there is an effect. When you operate powerfully and positively at cause, by doing what I have been suggesting you, will get powerful and positive effects returned. That is the law!

It is all about cause and effect. Become the person who is the cause of all good things. Cause your world to be marvelous and you will have a marvelous world.” Rex Sikes
