Do This Since You Can’t Change The Past

“Have you harmed someone in your present? What can you do to make things better? Have you harmed anyone in the past; physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually? Has someone harmed you? To take care of yourself and move forward you must make some changes.

You cannot go back and change the past. You can however make amends to yourself and others for past wrongs. You can forgive yourself and forgive the others. If they are no longer alive you can release them in your heart and mind. You can change yourself.

Having learned from past mistakes you can change your present behavior for the better. By genuinely doing this you can move forward with a clean conscience. You do whatever you can to correct the situation. You take the actions you can to make things better.

If You Want Your Life To Change You Must Make Some Changes

You release and let go. You forgive yourself for hurting others and yourself. You forgive and let go of others for hurting you. Then having released the persons, the memories and feelings, you can learn the lessons you need to learn from having gone through this.

Ask yourself what you needed to learn from this experience? What is the positive good you get from the lesson of that situation? Discover it and  you can begin to appreciate everything.  Instead of suffering, you let go and begin to move forward positively.

You can begin to create an whole new future. You re-create yourself in light of the positive lessons you glean from the undesirable circumstances back then. Leave the past in the past. Free your mind from any uneasiness. Free your heart. Resolve to do better.

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

Apply the positive lesson and you will do better. Be positive. Learn to feel good. Be grateful. Consider your learning an opportunity and blessing.  You can change how you feel about any circumstance and person by changing what you choose to focus on. It is always up to you. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Are You Ruled By Mythic Thinking?

“Positive thinking and optimistic thinking does not necessitate that it ever become unrealistic. That is mythic thinking. That is a great misunderstanding about positive thinking. Positive thinking does not mean turning a blind eye to problems. It has never meant that!

Blind thinking, as some have said, is to imagine ‘there are no weeds, there are no weeds’ when there are weeds. That is not positive thinking. That is ignoring the weeds.  Positive thinking is ‘I can weed the garden. I can learn to weed. I can make it beautiful.’ Get it?

One can ask, ‘what needs to be done to make this the best garden? I can take care of this’. Thought precedes action so the appropriate follow up to ‘I can weed the garden’, is to then weed the garden. Many people misunderstand what it means to think positively.

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

Many misconceptions abound.  Positive thinking is most useful in creating what one wants. You can create and design your plans. You aim at the target so you can hit it. It can even include knowing what you don’t want to clarify what you do want. YUP! It does indeed

You can’t build a building knowing only what you don’t want in it. You have to know what you do want! An architect draws very specific plans! Looking at the plans one might decide the closet should be located elsewhere. You know what you don’t want.

Then, switch focus from ‘what is wrong,’ to the ‘right’ you intend to pursue and create. Example aside, positive thinking is incredibly useful in righting wrongs; the ‘wrongs’ in your personal life and in society. Stop tearing down, but recognize what you won’t tolerate.

Then make a plan to create what you want instead. What you resists persist, but you can overcome the problem. You can even overcome the solution to the problem to make things better than you could otherwise previously imagine. Get it? It’s important. Do you?

The More You Do The More You Become Capable Of Doing

What do I mean by overcome the solution? Sometimes, the obvious solution isn’t  the wisest or the most efficacious. Sometimes, the very solution one is attempting to utilize IS the problem or exacerbates the issue. This can be overcome by better thinking.

Positive thinking means you don’t let the negative thinking get you down or derail you from useful, well constructed plans or goals. It means you put your best ‘mindset’ on, manage your thoughts, and put your best foot forward. You function realistically and optimally.

In spite of odds, you continue to prevail. You persist and see it through. You adjust as necessary along the way. Use positive thinking! If you don’t know how, or if you struggle to, you can learn and train yourself to think more positively. You can make positive thinking  a reliable habit. If you want to be happier and more successful this is a must! Learn how to transform yourself and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Only Think You Think

“Thoughts are really, mostly, just past old tapes of self-talk, pictures and feelings people identify with. They are old movies. Reruns mostly. This is why you think the same thing over and over again. You have habitual, patterns of review that get triggered. New? Hardly!

Most people don’t think at all. They just run the old tapes and movies and think they are thinking. They aren’t. It isn’t new, creative, thought. It is past, conditioned habitual thoughts. People argue with themselves because they have both sides taped.

This is why people have difficulty deciding. They have both sides and they repeatedly, obsessively go back and forth. People are not these thoughts. They are not thoughts at all. They are running the old programs in new situations. You might have noticed this yourself.

You’re Where Your Thoughts Brought You And Will Be Tomorrow

It is reaction not response. It is habit. It is patterns playing over and over. This is why the statement, if you always do what you always did but expect different result it is insanity.  AND, if you always do what you always did you will always get what you already got. Get it?

It is sad but we all go through this. You can become aware of your thought habits. You can learn to direct them and shift from non-productive, negative, non-supportive thinking to productive, powerful positive thinking and begin to get better results.

You can learn to think. It takes re-education and rewiring. Transformation is possible. Stop using borrowed maps. Create new updated ones. You can become aware. You can change thought patterns and manage thoughts. You can even transcend thoughts!

The Brain Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think – Learn To Think Now

Then your entire life can begin to change for the positive. Stop living from the outdated and update and upgrade your thinking. Design your mind, your experience and your life. Learn to create your best life ever. I’ll help you. Nothing will change however, until you do. Meanwhile, practice gratitude and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

If You Would Be Loved

“Benjamin Franklin wrote, ‘If you would be loved, love and be lovable.’ These are pretty profound words. These words exemplify the concept of ‘Go First!’ If you want love, be loving first. If you want kindness, be kind first. If you want peace, be peaceful first. Get it?

It should go without saying, this is the ancient principle of Cause and Effect. It is the principle of Reciprocity. It is the principle of The Law of Attraction. If you want something, be it first. The mirror reflects back a smiling person. Birds of a feather flock together. Get it?

If you want attention, give your attention first. If you want to be heard, listen well first. If you want abundance, feel abundance and give first. Stop expecting the other to go first. YOU go first. You get back what you put out. The world loves a cheerful giver. Get it?

Celebrate all. Consider everyone and every circumstance a blessing. Decide how you want it. If you want to be loved, love and be lovable.  Live intentionally, not haphazardly. Create your love, peace, happiness, and good fortune. Go first. Be the change you want to see in the world. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Your Expectations Screw You Or Bless You!

“Your expectations can screw you. You expect something to cost two dollars. You find out it cost three dollars. You’re bummed out. If you found out that it only cost one dollar you’d be thrilled. What we  believe and expect can determine if we are excited or bummed out.

Your expectations determine much of what you experience and what you find. If you’re focused on finding problems, if you expect something to be difficult, if you expect it to be boring or depressing or dull then it’s likely it will be. Expectations shape our reality.

If you expect it to be fun and thrilling and exciting then it likely will be. However, if you expect too much you’re bound to be disappointed.  Realize, regardless of whether you’re thrilled or disappointed it’s your expectations causing you to feel as such.

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

Your thoughts, your beliefs, your expectations, are your mindset. In order to live better, feel better, and get better results you need to manage your mindset. Gain control of your thinking and make it work for you in positive and powerful ways. Don’ t let it run you.

Otherwise, you’ll continue to get the ‘less than glorious’ results you’ve already always got and don’t want. You want it better?  It’s a bitch  thinking from a negative habitual mindset while wanting things to improve. It won’t as long as you do things the same old way.

People think, ‘OK, today it’ll be different.’  Unless you actually make the effort to shift your thoughts, it doesn’t change. It won’t change. It can’t change because it is habit you live from.  In order to actually change you have to actually change the things you do. Get it?

If You Always Do What You Always Did You Get The Same Results

You can’t do the same thing again and again and expect anything to be different because it won’t be. Your mental habits govern what you think, see, feel, say to yourself, experience and the results you get. Everything will be the same as long as things remain the same.

You need to learn new, positive, powerful productive habits that lead you in new directions. You need to shift your thinking. When you shift your mindset to the positive you’ll begin to feel new feelings and get better results. You will discover great things!

The old way doesn’t work to get you new things. Stop doing what you’ve always done, and expecting it to be different, and start doing things you’ve never done. Do this! Then you’ll  know it can be different. As you master new habits a, you transform.

Don’t Like What Results You Get – Only You Can Change Them

You will discoverer yourself becoming unconsciously competent, thinking in positive, powerful, productive ways the more you practice, repeatedly, thinking positive. The more you do it the easier it becomes and the more you will do it naturally. Get it? It’s habit! Develop new habits and your life will improve. Do nothing and you will remain the same. One important, life changing transformational habit is to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Don’t Expect Anything If You Don’t Do This

“In a recent post I paraphrased an important concept from author James Allen ‘As A Man Thinketh’ which was, our minds are like a garden. It can be wisely and intelligently cultivated, or it can be allowed to run wild. Either way, it will bring forth results.

If you plant corn you get corn. If you allow weeds to grow and choke the corn they will. If you plant corn you don’t get carrots. If you plant poison you get poison, not corn. If you plant positive seeds you get positive results. If you let negativity grow you get more negativity.

If you don’t plant specific seeds, if you do nothing but let it go, all on its own then other seeds, weeds, animals and birds, leaves and sticks, insects and others will get into your garden. It will possibly overgrow and do harm to your garden. Whatever is allowed to grow will grow!

If You Really Want To Do Something You Will Find A Way …

Negligence produces results albeit unintended ones. This is how many people live and run their brains and mind. They live with whatever shows up, whatever their conditioning is. They do little or nothing to change it or make it better. Oh yes,  they do complain.

If you want a beautiful garden, if you want to create your best life ever, you must make it happen. You must care for it. You must tend to it. Eliminate the weeds and debris and nurture and promote that which you want to grow. You can’t ignore it into better health.

Seeds produce more. Seeds produce bountiful harvests which result in more seeds. One apple seed may produce 100s or 1000s of apples which may produce millions of more seeds. Positivity produces much more positivity. Negativity produces more negativity!

If You Don’t You Will Find An Excuse – Whatever You Feed Grows

You have to determine which it is you want to grow. Determine the results you want and tend to your garden. Manage the thinking, promote the positive. Whatever you give preferential treatment will multiple. Whatever your predominant thoughts are produce results.

If you aren’t getting the results you want you have some garden management to take care of. You will need to eliminate, drop, let go of, release, weed out the negative and plant, nurture and tend to the positive seeds. Whatever you focus on expands. It works this way.

You can fight it or learn to work with it. If you want to create your best life ever there are things you can do. If you do nothing it is unlikely it will ever happen. If you are primarily negative and operate from excuses and blames, you probably just ought to forget it.

You Are Either Growing And Expanding Or Shrinking And Dying

If it is to be it will be up to how you think, feel and what you do OR don’t do. Get it? If you can’t do it alone get guidance. Get a mentor or coach who can help you. Heck, people get tour guides to help learn the way, so should you. The point is if you don’t take care of this it will grow as it is on its own. If you don’t like your circumstances or results then you need to make some changes. Get it? Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Bad News And Good News You Need To Do Something About!

“You made your thoughts, feelings, self-talk and behaviors habitual all while you were growing up from birth on. By about age seven your beliefs, mindset and behaviors were locked in. All of us go through this. Our limitations and beliefs govern us from then on.

That is the bad news. We are limited from the beginning. The good news is not everything we were conditioned with was negative or a limitation. We also have resources but we don’t even realize we have them because the limitations get most of our attention. We miss out.

More good news. Once we become aware of the conditioning process, and our own conditioning, we have the opportunity to change it. Awareness is the beginning point. When we realize what we are doing isn’t working any longer, we can begin to do new things.

Skill Comes Of Doing – Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill

Then we can re-condition ourselves and become free. It is simple, but not always easy. It requires we do the new thoughts, new self-talk, new feelings and new behaviors correctly, consistently, for long enough to overwrite the old habits and lock in the new habits.

We can do this! You can do this! I can help you. I’ve programs designed to help you make positive and powerful changes easily and have fun while doing so. If you realize you need to change and transform and create your best life, check into Mind Design™.

Here is an important quote:  ‘It is only when the correct practice is followed for a long time, without interruptions and with a quality of positive attitude and eagerness, that it can succeed… Distractions arise from habitual thought patterns when practice is intermittent.’

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

That’s from Patanjali, about 1700 years ago, author of the ‘Yoga Sutras’. The success formula to follow for change goes way back! It is rooted solidly in time and practice. Follow correct practice and you will develop the results you seek. Sadly, most people don’t. Will you?

Practice gratitude. Inspire yourself. Inspire others. Be thankful. Look for the good. Enjoy each moment. Let go of the past. Let go of limitations. Encourage your resourcefulness. Become aware. Consider all a blessing. Live joyfully. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
