Noticing What’s Around You

Are you aware of your surroundings? Do you notice the opportunities constantly presenting themselves to you?

If you answered yes… are you SURE?

In this video, I talk about mental filters that automatically condition our behavior and cause us to think and react in specific ways. Perhaps your current filters are preventing you from noticing what’s really going on around you and robbing you from the true success you are seeking… in any area of your life.

Check out my thoughts on this topic and then let me know what you think. Have you experimented with this concept before?

    Great insight there man – You totally got me with the toe thing. It really illustrated the point.

    The best thing about advice like this – is what can it possibly hurt? I f someone is cynical and doesn’t think this will help them…what do they lose by trying?

    It is free, takes no real time and no physical exertion. The only thing you can possibly lose by listening to advice like this is some of your cynicism 🙂

      Good call Ted. I agree.
      It basically comes down to your beliefs. If you don’t believe you can alter your results by changing your perception and looking for new opportunity, then you probably won’t. If you really care about producing awesome results in your life, then why not give this a shot?

    Hi Justin,

    Great explanation on the RAS and its use. I agree that we tend to filter out certain things, but once we change our perception and become aware of things, they take meaning.

    That’s funny that you bring up the writing of your goals daily, I used to do this and got out of the habit. It’s been on my mind that I need to take up this habit again so that I’m focused on what I’m doing and not wasting my time.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Karen

      Hey Karen,
      Yes I’m a big believer in constantly reminding yourself of what your goals are. It is a great way to generate new ideas and new inspiration toward the achievement of those goals. I always think of it this way…. if you focus on your goals frequently, the probability of realizing is drastically higher than if you were to think about those goals say, once a year.
