ALLAN’S TIPS ON SETTING AND ACHIEVING GOALS
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.”
