Training Your Reticular Activating System (RAS) for Success

This is a quick explanation of the Reticular Activating System (RAS) – where it is and how it works.

Sunshine: Do you have your reticular activating system set for success?

Crystal: Welcome to the Love of Business. I’m Crystal.

Sunshine: And I’m Sunshine. Let’s get to it.

Reticular what?

Crystal: It is a mouthful.

Sunshine: I think I saw RAS for short? R-A-S?

Crystal: Yes. We will talk about another acronym today, RAS.

Sunshine: Or reticular activating system.

Crystal: Yes.

Sunshine: All right, let’s hear what it is?

Crystal: So, the reticular activating system is a real thing. And it is a bundle of nerves that is about as big as a quarter or a walnut. And it is located in your subconscious brain. So, let’s take a moment and engage with me. Take your hand half mast, take your hand and put it on the base of your neck, where your neck meets your skull, and that is where your reticular activating system is located. Now, its job is to get you furiously focused and remove all the distractions that are not important to your goals and to your vision.

So, for example, have you ever bought a new car or got a new hobby, and then you start seeing it everywhere? Well, that was your reticular activating system in motion, working for you. You know, when you put very specific goals and business plans into place, that sets your reticular activating system so that you can furiously focused and go from point A to point B in the quickest amount of time possible. Which is great.

Sunshine: I really think that everyone could use a little bit more of the programming on their reticular activating system. Do you have any other tips that they could do to help set that?

Crystal: A couple of things that you can do to really hone your RAS, is maybe affirmations, I am statements to reprogram and get you focused on your goals, dreams, and what you are trying to achieve. Also, as a piece of homework because there are tons of information on the RAS.

Sunshine: Okay.

Crystal: And your homework is to Google it later and find out more about it. Study it a little bit. Because you and I can talk about the RAS all day long. Sunshine: You know, would actually like to. But this video should only be three minutes long. So, what is your number one take away from today’s video? Leave us a comment and thanks for watching.
