According to researches including the National Science Foundation, it is estimated that we have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day. That’s roughly 2,000 to 2,900 thoughts per hour, or 35 to 49 thoughts per minute. As remarkable as those numbers seem, I believe that for most of us those numbers are even higher. Maybe not back in the day of little houses on the prairie, but certainly in the day of real-time technology.
We think thoughts, apply reasoning, and formulate beliefs. The problem is that our thoughts and beliefs aren’t necessarily true, or in our highest good.
How many of the roughly 60,000 thoughts in your day are absolutely true?
How many of them are in your best interest?
How many are in the best interest of all?
When I do not notice thought, it controls me. Imagine that, it controls me because I don’t notice it. The mind thinks, and I believe it without question, all day long, everyday. Some unmonitored thought has me on top of the world, and some of it has me hiding under the bed.
Developing the ability to notice thought is one of your superpowers.
