9 Ways to Stop Overthinking Forever

Show your Astrology Degree if you are sure to fail

“I know this plan is not going to work.”

“This day is going to be another bad day.”

“I will never amount to anything.”

“This year will be the same stressful year.”

If these are the things you keep chanting to yourself then show us your astrology degree. Claim that you are right. Even astrologers predictions are proven false sometimes. How can you be so sure that everything will go wrong? Without any astrology skill, you are being certain about your failure.

Is this even logical?

– Okay, things might go in the undesired direction. You may fail. But there are chances that life may give you success. Your overthinking is chewing your success possibilities and not at all helping you to be successful.

– You can only move where your thoughts are directed. If you are feeling to go backward, there is no way your life will move forward. Change mind structure to change your life situation.

– If you can either fail or loose, then why rely only on failing?

Don’t run towards goal with one leg

Overthinking rips you in halves. You are divided into two selves, one being the present you and other is the ‘what if’ you. The present you is the half part that wants to live, the one who wants to grow, chase dreams, follow heart and smile. The ‘what if’ you are the sad one, dipped in hopeless possibilities which can show up in life.

With you divided in two, only the present one is able to run towards the goal, while the ‘what if’ is brooding. But when you run chasing your goal with half you, you have one leg. How will you reach your goal on time?

You will stumble a lot, it will be a long run and you will experience more hardships because of overthinking.

– Your overthinking is only separating you from your goals by making the path rocky.

– Be fully present for your goals and life. Half you imply half fulfilled goals, half-lived life. And it is a total loss.

– To meet the present you and complete it, rest rather than doing overthinking. Sleep and power naps will help you powering the present you and losing the ‘what if’ you.

– One day you will realise that all over thinking you did and wasting your precious time for it was useless. You would overthink for your career when you were in school. But after college, everything will go smoothly. You worry about your marriage but you will find your spouse with ease. All overthinking is not required.

– Life has great surprises for you, remove the veil of overthinking and taste the life.

– You need not to make a plan and sort your whole life today. Just focus on the day in hand. Because day by day you will sort out your life.
