The Cycle of Perpetual Sameness

Each of us has beliefs stored in our unconscious minds.  We develop these beliefs from our families, cultures, experiences, and even our own thoughts.  The Reticular Activating System (R.A.S.) part of the brain matches the outside world to these beliefs.  We literally see or don’t see things in our environment based on our beliefs. 

If we have a negative experience or get a negative result, we sometimes focus on that result and engage in negative self-talk.  This negative self-talk generates negative emotion.  The self-talk and emotion help to reinforce the belief in the unconscious mind and then the R.A.S. matches that belief, and so on. 

We call this The Cycle of Perpetual Sameness and it’s the reason why most people only experience incremental change in their lives.  You can download The Cycle of Perpetual Sameness by “right-clicking” on the graphic below.  You can find other useful tools in the files section of our Facebook Group.  CLICK HERE to join for FREE.
