Power of the mind.
Are you among the 5%?
This morning while reading a book titled, "Towards mental exploits", I came across a report of a particular research about mind and thinking.
A very startling study reveals that only 5% of the human populace think! Fifteen percent think they re thinking, while the remaining 80% would rather die than think.
It is very funny to know that out of the entire population, only 5% of it are actually thinking. At some point, I started asking if I am part of those that are thinking or among those that think they are thinking.
To know whether you are thinking or thinking you are thinking, how you think and the result of your thinking will determine where you belong.
The thinking process is referred to as meditation which engages the mind providing solution to a problem or to devise a new way of doing same task. It is the process of being creative, innovative about what you are doing.
Another process that is very similar to meditation is worry. Most times, when people sit down and look moody or they isolate themselves from others, we do take it as if they are thinking whereas they are worried over the problem.
Thinking begot solution so any meditation process that does not lead to any creativity or innovation towards solving a problem is just worry.
Thanks to my sponsors. I really appreciate your kind gesture and act of humanity.
Do you know what worry does?
It keeps you busy doing nothing.
As powerful as the mind is, there is nothing that occurs that will not pass through it but there are certain actions that is normal.
According to research conducted by A Russian researcher, we use less than 2% of our brain capability for our daily activities.
What if I can just use 5% more?
The truth is that there is no limit to how far the mind can be engaged but if it is not engaged, it will not function at its best.
