THE BATTLE FOR THE BRAIN: PART 2
WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT YOU BRING ABOUT- WYTAYBA
Whatever you plant in your mind you bring about and your RAS helps you do that.
Let’s say I decide I want a new car and I start thinking about getting a Toyota Camry. If I start seriously considering buying a Camry an amazing thing will happen. A car that I really never noticed before will suddenly be everywhere I look. Were those cars always there? Yes, they were. Did I notice them before I started thinking about buying one? No, I did not.
That result is your Reticular Activating System (RAS ) at work. It filters all of the massive amounts of information that your subconscious is processing and sends it to your conscious mind. When you plant decisions/intensions in your mind your RAS gets to work filtering that massive amount of information from the subconscious to the conscious mind providing you with what you want to see. The RAS is providing you with the ‘results’ you asked for, just like Google.
Here is a simple, practical way you frequently remind your RAS of your goals.
Studies have shown an average person turns on and unlocks his/her phone 110 times a day! You can use the unlock screen to program your RAS. Create a graphic that states your goal and make it your lock-screen. My goal, to RANK-UP to GOLD in my Vasayo Business, now greets me every time I open my phone.
Now my brain is working for me to help me achieve by providing me with knowledge, inspiration, action opportunities that will steadily move me toward achieving my goal. POWERFUL STUFF!
