Take a deep breath and relax.
Start by telling the negative committee inside your head to just sit down and shut up.
Negativity enters our lives from many sources, both internal and external. Internal negativity and self-doubt are often the most harmful, as they hold us back from growth and happiness.
Most people combine negativity with their overthinking because they spend so much time thinking about things that can happen and things that can go wrong. But you are not an over-thinker. You are suffering from an excess of thoughts.
People call it overthinking because... people are people, and their attention to detail is located in the same place their car keys are, which they can never find.
You are always going think. You need to just change the way you think...not the amount that you are thinking.
Your thoughts today will have a major impact on your life tomorrow. Today is the day which you find true purpose in your life and tomorrow, is when you live out that purpose.
Self-doubt is a very natural feeling. If you don't feel self-doubt, then you are living recklessly.
The trick isn't to not feel self-doubt but to put it into perspective. Take time to concentrate on the things that you are capable of and worry less about the consequences of failure.
The only thing that will help you is choosing to be happy.
We often sell ourselves short and tell ourselves we can't do things...so changing your way of thinking can be difficult to do.
The first step is just to be aware of what you say to yourself and to work on switching negative thoughts to positive ones when you catch them.
Start opening up to people, and start expressing yourself.
It may be hard at first because you don't really know how to put what you're experiencing into words. Then there is that final hurdle of being able to look at someone and say exactly what you're feeling.
But I promise it will be worth it. Having another person there to help talk through all your negative thoughts and get you out of that funk you get in, is a huge gift.
Just remember, you cannot fail at your life.
"Don't wait for everything to be perfect before you start to enjoy your life."
