The Veterinary Consultant says, “The mind is an extraordinary power of which we only use a very small portion.” In the book, “Speed Reading in only One Hour” they show you how to tap some of that unused power and use it for your personal success in your personal and professional life.
Your brain and mind are capable of understanding from 10,000 to 50,000 units of information every minute; one unit being equal to one word. This information is based upon somewhat old statistics (1980’s). Based on new speed reading technology, as well as strides in brain and mind development, you can probably achieve phenomenal reading speeds yourself and easily.
The average High School graduate, when tested, reads about 250 words per minute. The college student reads at about 300 words per minute. But, no matter what your baseline reading speed, don’t worry, it is only the beginning. Can you imagine what an advantage you would have to be able to read over 100% faster than you did before? The possibilities are limitless.
Humans receive information through five physical senses, (touching, tasting, hearing, smelling, and seeing) and through those we make decisions. Actually, we make choices and judgments from factors that the physical senses bring into play. The five physical senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch) are pre-programmed for automatic reaction.
We learn, not only from physical senses, but through various forms of thought. Most thought is conscious in nature. Senses however work automatically. An example of an automatic reaction might be: when a hungry teenager smells pizza, he or she begins salivating. What’s taking place is that the sense of smell (called olfactory senses) has automatically delivered a thought, “PIZZA” to the brain and mind. The thought may be unconscious.
Sensing food is a physical expression of your sense smell and possibly taste. It is a mental sensation (unconsciously or consciously) through your thought processes. And finally, there seems to be a physical sensation by eating, swallowing, and smiling. To summarize the PIZZA concept, the mind is where the “action” is — and your body is where your “reaction” is.
The brain and the mind hold enormous untapped potential. They are going to help you tap into that potential through Speed Reading in One Hour, available at www.speedread.org, and they’ll show you how you can succeed in your professional life and beyond.
