Book Excerpt:
Who’s The Boss?
Given the information presented so far, who do you
think is the boss—your conscious mind or your unconscious
mind? If you chose your conscious mind, you are
correct! Your conscious mind is always the boss. It’s the
part of your mind that is capable of processing and analyzing
data. It’s the part of your mind that has free will
to make decisions and is capable of accepting and rejecting
information. It’s the part of your mind that filters information
in order to come up with the Master Plan.

Your Reality Exists Only
In Your Mind

Do you remember when I said your conscious mind is
only capable of processing less than one percent, and
your unconscious mind is capable of processing one
hundred percent of the data that you encounter? What
does that really mean?

To put things into perspective, your unconscious
mind receives millions of bits of data every single second.
Millions of bits of data every single second! Stop
and take that in for a moment. Every single second of
your life, your unconscious mind is bombarded with millions
of bits of data, which is equivalent to all of the
words in seven volumes of average-sized books. That’s
a lot of information to process every single second.
Now imagine what it would be like for you if you
were to become aware of millions of bits of data every
single second of your life. How would you feel if you
were forced to process seven volumes of books every
single second? Your conscious mind is just not capable
of processing that much data. You would go into severe
sensory overload and would most likely explode or shut
down. Lucky for you, all of that is happening in the
background of your unconscious mind and is not within
your awareness.

Of the millions of bits of data, the conscious part of
your mind is only able to process 126 bits of data per
second. To demonstrate what this looks like, let’s look
back at the example of the millions of bits of data as being
equivalent to all the words within seven volumes of
books. Of the seven books that your unconscious mind
is processing, your conscious mind is only capable of
seeing one word. One word! That one word, whichever
one word that might be, is the only one that makes it into
your awareness and that is what becomes your reality.
I want you to stop and think about what that really
means. Imagine reading seven books and understanding
only one word, thus believing that one word is, in fact,
the only subject of those books. Is there something you
might be missing? The important takeaway here is to realize
that each of us is most likely focusing on a different
word that becomes our respective realities.
Your reality only exists in your mind and nowhere
else. You might have a similar experience to that
of another person, but when you break it down into
tiny details, you will find significant variations.
Go ahead and try this exercise out for fun. Close your
eyes and turn to a random page in this book and point to
a word. Now open your eyes and look at that word. Does
this one word represent everything this book is about? I
can guarantee the answer is no. This book is so much
more than the one word you’ve randomly picked, but
that demonstrates well how your conscious reality might
be misrepresented by the powerful filtering system of
your mind.
