What you know hurts you.
Virtually all of the thoughts that you process daily are conspiring to make you a boring, uninspired thinker.
Scientists tell us that we have billions of thoughts running through our minds every day. On a conscious level, it's estimated that we process between 125 and 130 bits of data every second. That's over 11 million bits of data—just on the conscious level—each day.
Then there are the subconscious and superconscious levels. Literally billions of bits of data on or near the surface of our minds.
Think of your first-grade teacher. How long did it take to access that data? We each possess a veritable supercomputer between our ears.
