8 Things every overthinker needs to know asap

The problem is rarely the problem.


99% of the harm is caused in your head, by you and your thoughts. 1% of the harm is caused by reality, what actually happens and the outcome.

Most of the time, the problem is not the problem. The way you think about the problem is.

Avoid self-rejection


Don't think you deserve that opportunity? Apply for it anyway.

Don't think your article is good enough? Publish it anyway.

Don't think they'll reply to your email? Send it anyways.

Never overthink yourself into self-rejection.

Silence and time


The truth is, most problems aren't solved with more thinking. They're solved with less. You will find most of the answers you're looking for in silence, in timeband with a clear mind.

If you can't solve a problem, stop trying to.

An important question.


When you start criticizing yourself for past mistakes or seeing disaster around every corner, ask yourself;

"Is there anything I can do right now to change the past or to positively influence the future?"

If the answer is yes, take action. If the answer is no, be at peace and let it go.

You have to take action or let it go, everything else is self-harm.

The power of now.


You are not going to overthink your way to a better future. You are not going to overthink your way to a better past.

All you have is now.

And what you do with now can make right of your past and make good of your future.

Make peace with yesterday, let go of tomorrow, grab hold of now.

Fact check your own thoughts


Your thoughts will create scenarios in your mind that reflect your insecurities, fears, and worries.

So, it's important to always fact-check your own thoughts before accepting them, because, in highly emotional situations, your thoughts will tell you stories that aren't true.

Acceptance is peace


No amount of anxiety will change your future, no amount of regret will change your past.

Peace is found in acceptance.

Accept imperfection Accept uncertainty. Accept uncontrollable.

You don't have to understand, tolerate, or even forget something, but if you want peace, you must accept it.

Health starts in your mind


You can go to the gym, eat healthily, do yoga, drink water, and take vitamins, but if you don't directly confront the negativity in your thoughts, you will never truly be healthy.

Our health is not measured on scales, by the size of our muscles, or by the width of our waist.

True health is measured by the quality of our thoughts and the peacefulness of our minds.
