Make it work. Just make it work.

 Over thinkers always end up “making it work” but not without first adding a lot of unnecessary drama and anxiety.

The over thinker is used to living in a state of stress and sleepless nights. It is used to being told that they are worrying too much about something, they are also used to being tired.

Why Do We Care About Being Judged?

Do you worry about being judged?

In an ideal world, we would all love to answer with a confident; “nope, I don’t give a damn” but reality sits differently, doesn’t it?

In a way we have been conditioned to think about what others would say and think of us since we were young children. I still catch myself telling my son “don’t scream like that at the store, what would others think”…(insert rolling my eyes to myself)

Feel the damn feeling

When 💩 hits the fan, there will be emotions inside your body. Tension, discomfort, whatever “heavy” is for you. Our obvious tendency is to avoid the feeling because it sucks. However, delaying, ignoring or, avoiding our feelings only make them stay longer. It takes 2 minutes to feel a feeling. That is it. When you give yourself those two minutes, you process and open new space. So, take the two minutes and free yourself from the heavy emotion.

Leaning Towards Discomfort

After over 16 years of intimately working with people and their emotions, I’ve come to realize that the fear of discomfort is a significant barrier to achieving success, regardless of how one defines it.

Consider one of your current aspirations, goals, or dreams…

Now, ask yourself: What’s holding me back?

Did the fear of discomfort come to mind? (Fear of feeling anxious, ashamed, embarrassed, etc.)

When you know what to do, but don’t do it…

Have you ever found yourself caught in the trap of thinking, “I know exactly what to do,” yet, for some reason, you’re not moving forward? You’re not alone. 

It’s a common scenario many of us face, where the gap between knowing and doing feels insurmountably wide. But here’s the truth: knowledge, while incredibly valuable, is only the first step. The real magic happens when we acton that knowledge.
