Is not the information we have is the information we purposefully miss

Hello to all, today I want to talk to you about something that will feel like it is science fiction, but it certainly isn't.

I have continued on with the course that I am taking, and have come across a fantastic fact about how we operate, and it is the information we consider important.

Fact: We process only 1% to 2% of the total amount of information we actually have in front of us.

There is soooo much information out there, that we simply cannot process it all, and thus we take shortcuts, so we can make decisions.

Think about when you are driving, there is the road ahead, other cars, the billboards, the radio is on, we have to feel the steering wheel, the seat, the heat, etc, etc... but we manage to drive back home safely and apparently without breaking a sweat.

We do this by processing only the information that we think is important.

Another example has to do with the news and media we frequently watch or read, by reading one or another, we may see that there is a completely different world in our own city or town, and probably both contain true information.

Where do I want to go with this? If we can process only 2% at most of the information, there is in reality 50 or more possible ways to live our life, there are like parallel universes happening around you, and you have a choice in which one of those you wish to live.

To bring it into practice, choose wisely the information you choose to make decisions, because decisions are the steering wheel of life, and I certainly want you to go to a really nice place, so choose the map wisely.

My map is full of positive thoughts, positive people, learnings (not failures), happiness and laughter.

What does yours have? If you don't like it you can change it by paying attention to the other 98% of information you are discarding...

Think about it, and post your comments below!

Have a wonderful weekend!
