Episode 52: Reticular Activating System (RAS) and The Perpetual Victim Mentality
How does (RAS) Reticular Activating System relate to The Perpetual Victim Mentality?
For many, perception is reality, and when it comes to peoples’ perception of things, it begins with what they are most focused on most of the time. I’ve stated it many times before and I’ll continue to say it, those who constantly drive the victim mentality into their children are committing child abuse. What this does is set the primary focus in that child’s mind that the world is out to get them and as such, their reticular activating system will seek out every opportunity in their day to day lives to manifest that as a reality. Conversely, as I discussed with Denise Albright in Episode 50 of the podcast, when one focuses on and looks for things to be grateful for, finding gratitude daily becomes easier, and subsequently, happiness and a more fulfilling life becomes the result. It’s a tale of 2 choices with entirely different results.
This is truly an episode that everyone can greatly benefit from! I challenge you to prove me wrong…
