Overthinking can paralyze us. Before we’ve even set out to do something, we’re already imagining countless different scenarios in our head.
This usually plays out with a series of internal “what if” questions…
“What if I fail? What if I look stupid? What if people judge me?”
We envision the worst outcomes possible. We terrify ourselves from taking action.
When you believe an experience is going to be negative, you’re likely to avoid that experience.
You’re setting yourself up to fail. And it’s because you’re asking the wrong questions. How we talk to ourselves has a powerful impact on reality.
