The widely held urban myth tells us that men think about sex every seven seconds!
Now, whether your thoughts go to sex every seven seconds or not, there’s no denying that our minds are pre-occupied with thinking about something, sex or otherwise, most of the time.

Here’s a question. Is it your logical and reasoned ‘conscious mind’ that drives your behaviours or is it your unconditionally accepting, instinctive and emotional ‘subconscious mind’?
It is generally accepted, based on scientific research, that the vast majority of behaviours – some 96% of them – are driven by your subconscious mind.
It’s the thoughts you continually impress upon your subconscious, often since childhood and over the course of many years, that become a fixed part of your personality. And, it’s these persistently held thoughts that express themselves automatically through your habitual ‘unconscious’ behaviours.
