About the journal
On many ocasssions you will find you’re drowning yourself with obstacles, making up imaginarey barriers that you may need to overcome in order to achieve your goals or overanalysing every possible thing that could go wrong. You need to realise that a lot these so called “obstacles” are in your head, challanges that you have made up becuase of over thinking. You need to realise because of over thinking, fear becuase you are scared at the risk of all the things that could go wrong and the unknown future, you will try to talk yourself out of achieving your goals due to overthinking.
The thing you need to tell yourself that it’s all in your head, the thing is you need to concentrate on the present and not be misguided with what if’s. If you don’t know what’s going to happen next week why are you worrying about next month or next year.
I know what you’re thinking, it’s important to plan and yes of course it’s important to plan, but there is a thing as overplanning. Over planning consist of endless over thinking, planning right down to the smallest detail can be bad and can lead to failure as much as underplanning. You need to allow room for movent within your planning for the unseen and future. If you do make a mistake or a speed bump comes along you’re able to adjust according to this.
Mistakes and failure are always likely to occur but don’t let this hold you back, your mistakes will not stay with you forever, they are not tattoed on your skin. Learn from them, find out what went wrong and keep moving.
Things will always go wrong and you will divert on to a new path. Embrace this and keep moving, if you’re naturally a over thinker find a specific time, write down everything you’re worried about and throw it in the bin. Thinking no more of it. Be firm with yourself that you won’t let these “obstacles” grow in your mind again, from a negative seed to a full fiction story. Tell yourself firmly “I’m overthinking “. Let me leave you with this final positive though I always tell myself and I request you to use this as a mantra, “stop worrying about all the things that could go wrong and focus on what could go right”
