The Reticular Activating System

It is remarkable how the mind works and how your mindset impacts what you suddenly notice in your world.

This quote is from a movie I have watched many times over the years but never noticed before. I am sure you recognize Gandalf from “Lord of the rings”. Have you noticed the quote before?


The mechanism behind this is called RAS (Reticular Activating System). In every second of our lives we are surrounded with million pieces of information and to focus on all bits is impossible. So, therefore, the RAS system helps us filter out what we think is important.

With this knowledge, the question then becomes, how can you use this to your advantage?

Below is a great video on RAS that explains it more in detail. Enjoy!
