If ever there was a confidence killer it is being too much in our heads. I know that sounds funny but what I mean is this: if we spend too much time thinking about things, we won’t actually do anything.
Does this sound familiar…?
1. You are inspired with a great idea and before you do the first thing about it, you have talked yourself out of it.
2. You want to ask someone out for a date but there are many reasons not to and you never do.
3. You have an impulse at a wedding, party, restaurant with a dance floor to get up and move and dance but you think better of it for you worry about how you will look and what people will think of you…
These are just a few examples of over-thinking and I really could come up with many more (and so could you I am sure).
We can be our own worst enemies when we think too much. I can write about this for I am guilty of doing this for much of my life.
The only way out of this kind of analysis paralysis that I know of is just to take action. #Go!
Whatever you are thinking of doing, do it before you talk yourself out of it.
When in doubt, I think it is better to do anything than nothing at all.
This is where courage comes in. We need to work on flexing our courage muscles to do new things and take action when it seems scary or difficult to do so.
We will continue this conversation…
Before I end this post, I challenge you to commit to doing something new today. Challenge yourself!
