Personal development author and teacher Jack Canfield notes:
“Your thoughts are powerful. They are real, they are measurable, they are energy.
“The conscious mind has: – Limited processing capacity. – Short term memory (about 20 seconds) – The ability to manage 1 to 3 events at a time -Impulses that travel at 120 to 140 mph – The ability to process an average of 2,000 bits of information per second
“Your subconscious mind is actually much more spectacular. It is frequently referred to as your spiritual or universal mind, and it knows no limits except for those that you consciously choose.”
