Instead of overthinking… instead of allowing negativity to monopolize your mind, put all that energy into developing laser sharp focus and concentration.
We all have it within us to change the way we think, in order to revolutionize the way we move. We have this power. Recognize the power of the mind. It all starts there.
Shift your thinking into what will bring forth more fruit.
Overthinking is something many of us face. And living in this social media age doesn’t make it any better!
If you find yourself in a state of overthinking, where you are drowned by doubt, recognize that you are putting your precious energy into the wrong things. You have faucets going on and on, overflowing the whole house, flooding your mind with overactivity that leads to nowhere. And if you don’t shut it off soon, you will be drowning in your own negativity. You do not want to become your own worst enemy.
Water is essential to life. But drowning in it can kill you. What I mean by this is that we need balance. Deep thinking is like water, it’s essential to solving problems, gaining insight, exploring our creativity, and thinking outside the box. But when we begin to overthink things, we are constantly bombarded by various information (usually useless) which causes us to make assumptions (usually tends to be inaccurate or misunderstood). Then, we dwell on these things, not realizing that some of the things we’re stressing over may not even be real, and it does not even matter.
What people think about you is irrelevant. You are wasting your time and energy focusing on the wrong things. Shut off the faucets that keep feeding into negativity and unproductivity.
It’s good to think. Keep on thinking. Think deeply even! Just make sure you put your thinking into positivity, innovation, creativity, etc.
Now, there may be times we can’t be positive ALL the time… this is normal. Be positive but also do NOT neglect your state of being. So, if you feel down, acknowledge it. Accept the pain you may be feeling. Do not ignore it. Recognize that it’s there, but don’t let it drain you.
As long as you don’t let it stagnate you, you will be fine. Accept the challenges and keep going. Everything won’t be positive all the time, but it is a matter of owning your mind, and it is about how you react to the negativity that may be thrown your way.
You cannot avoid negativity 100%. It’s going to come eventually, and you just have to be mentally prepared to use that energy to propel yourself higher, instead of allowing it to defeat you.
Overthinking can cause you to question your own self-worth and abilities. Stop it! This is the kind of negative thinking you do NOT want to entertain. It’s one thing to acknowledge your pain, but it’s another thing to let it drag you down into that abyss of worthlessness.
Only you can determine your own value, but this is also based on your action. How can other people see you’re valuable if you don’t even believe you’re own value? It all starts with you. And it all starts with your mind. The way you think about yourself and your life determines the outcome you will get.
The toughest competitor you’ll ever face is yourself. Once you’re able to knock your mind back into shape and use that energy to increase mental willpower, you will be unstoppable. You will be victorious. You just have to believe in yourself. Do not seek validation from others. They don’t see the vision you see for yourself. And even if they do they will not tell you because they may be envious of the potential you have. This is why you must keep your goals to yourself, and keep on pushing. All you ever need to succeed is to believe in yourself and in your God-given talents.
Invest in yourself.
Elevate your mind.
