By age 35, 95-99 percent of your thoughts and actions originate from the habitual programming of the subconscious mind—a combination of memorized behaviors, emotional reactions, beliefs and perceptions that run in the background like an app on your smartphone. Brain scientists report that we think between 12,000-60,000 thoughts per day, that 98 percent of them are identical to yesterday’s thoughts, and that 80 percent of your subconscious thoughts are negative.

Most of your subconscious programming happens in childhood, and Lipton explains the already obvious bad news that keeps therapists in business: “The subconscious mind has the tendency to interfere with our conscious desires by programming undesirable thoughts and behaviors, which could lead to a great deal of stress and turmoil in our lives.”
