Master Your Mind, Master Your Physique – Part 3: Your Reticular Activating System
What you aim at determines what you see.
At any one time we have a million points of information that we can take in thanks to our senses. When we’re in the gym there’s music playing, numerous people grunting, plates knocking about & our gym crush wearing her favourite booty popping leggings.
Obviously thats too much to focus on, to get around this our brain filters out 99.9% of what’s going on and only focuses on what’s important. Wait, hold up there! How the hell does our brain determine what’s important? We can both be in a room and observe completely different things.
Why are you noticing one thing and I’m noticing something different?
Well step in the OG, your Reticular Activating System. This guy is located at the base of your brain, its main job is to filter the incoming information and filter out the 99.9% of it that’s of no use to you. It decides what to filter based on what it deems will provide you with value based on your beliefs and your perceived reality.
This is all happening on a subconscious level and is super powerful if you have it working towards what you want to achieve…..like having a killer physique!
Have you ever gone car shopping and landed on a favourite car? Have you then started seeing that type of car everywhere?
Your focus & aim is that new car, you are now seeing that car everywhere. There’s not more of them on the road. You’re just noticing more of them all thanks to you Reticular Activating System.
On one hand this system is very complex in the vast amount of filtering it does and on the other hand it’s very basic in the sense it filters based on what you have programmed it to, that being your reality & beliefs.
We discussed how your thoughts (self-talk) builds your objective reality, whether that be true or not. Your Reticular Activating System then works to assimilate you to this reality by filtering the information accordingly. Thus, what you aim at really does determine what you see.
Another important concept is that you can’t hold 2 conflicting beliefs at one time. You hold your belief and then you assimilate to that belief. When you have conflicting beliefs you assimilate to the stronger of the 2. Theres no splitting hairs here.
A clear example of this is people who have a poor mindset who then win lotto. Over night they’re loaded but they still have a poor mindset. Their reality does not match their self-image/reality and they hold 2 conflicting beliefs at one time (rich/poor).
If they don’t change their mindset they will then spend/waste/giveaway their winning and return to being poor again. In doing so they have assimilated back to their reality that matches their poor mindset. This is why 70% of lottery winners end up going broke and 33% end up declaring bankruptcy. Isn’t that insane?
- Our thoughts (words, picture & emotions) collectively form our beliefs.
- Our beliefs are very powerful and we use them to form our perception of reality as to how we perceive reality to be true.
- Our Reticular Activating System kicks in & filters information based on what it deems of value going off of our beliefs and perceived reality.
- It works to assimilate us to our perception of who we are, that being our self-image. So we’d better get our self-image dialed in!
