We humans are lazy creatures.
Not me! I hear you say. I work hard! I run my own company, I look after three children, I jog in the mornings and play tennis on the weekend. I’m definitely NOT lazy!
Sure, you do all those things. But… you’re still lazy.
We ALL are.
At least, our thinking is.
And before you get all defensive again, scientists have found that up to 95% of your thinking is controlled by our subconscious mind.
That means your conscious mind generates fewer than TEN PERCENT of your thoughts. Your conscious mind is the part that’s aware of what you’re experiencing now.
In other words: your brain runs almost entirely on automation. YOU barely control your thoughts: it’s your subconscious that’s really in charge.
Of course, an automated mind can be quite comfortable if you’re happy with your current beliefs and you never want to think outside the box.
But if can be quite limiting. A lazy, automated mind can prevent you from discovering all the richness and wonders that the world has to offer.
Good news! You CAN break out of your lazy thinking. And when you do, you’ll live a more interesting, conscious life – one that will allow you to make better, smarter decisions.
