This Isn’t a New Age Theory; It’s Scientific Fact

Our brains have a vast amount of data flowing through them at all times.
The conscious mind can only process a small portion of that data.
How does the brain filter out what it chooses to consciously focus on and what it ignores?
Simple, you have a portion of your brain called the Reticular Activating System (RAS).

The only job of your RAS is to determine what your conscious mind utilizes or not.

The RAS does that with the stories that we tell about others and ourselves.

Where Do Those Stories Come From?

Like all great stories they are passed down from our parents, friends, church, business peers, and the things we see in the media.

Harvard Medical School established that 82% of our actions are a conditioned response.

Meaning that those stories were programmed by someone other than ourselves.
Then like Pavlov’s dogs we are simply executing on a pre-programmed response.
Ring the bell and the dog salivates; it’s the same for us.
So if all the stories that we live our lives by are made up by others, why have we have adopted them for ourselves?
Why not create a NEW MORE EMPOWERING STORY for yourself where you are the HERO?

Be the one that slays the dragon, rides of with the princess, and saves the kingdom, instead of the puny, pushed around victim.

Since we can’t control everything that is going to happen to us, the only way that we will ever change our outcomes in life is to create a new story.
