AL­LAN’S TIPS ON SET­TING AND ACHIEV­ING GOALS

Herworld (Malaysia) - - HER LIFE -

1 Re­wire your mind to see op­por­tu­ni­ties. “The RAS (retic­u­lar ac­ti­vat­ing sys­tem), lo­cated in the brain stem, is a bunch of neu­ral fi­bres com­monly known as the retic­u­lar for­ma­tion. It con­trols our be­lief sys­tem and will fil­ter all other in­for­ma­tion around us to help us get to what we have cho­sen to be­lieve. This is why some peo­ple see op­por­tu­ni­ties whereas oth­ers see dif­fi­cul­ties.” 2 Pic­ture what you do want. “The RAS sim­ply can’t see some­thing that’s not there, so don’t dwell on what you don’t want. For ex­am­ple, if you ask for a jug of wa­ter to be placed near you when you’re speak­ing to an au­di­ence, it car­ries the sub­lim­i­nal mes­sage that you ex­pect to de­velop a dry throat when you’re giv­ing the speech. ” 3 What you say is what you get. “Your RAS does not know the dif­fer­ence be­tween re­al­ity and fan­tasy, so it in­structs your body to ful­fil the af­fir­ma­tions you give it. We live up to the ex­pec­ta­tions of our­selves that we con­sciously or sub­con­sciously re­peat to our­selves with our daily af­fir­ma­tions.”
