Sugars Notes – Overthinking

Overthinking has got to be the biggest dream stealer. Ever. The worst part is you can actually trick yourself into believing that it’s useful.

It’s so easy to get caught up in analysis paralysis, playing out every possible scenario in your head until you talk yourself out of taking action. We convince ourselves all this overthinking is productive, that we’re just being responsible and minimizing risk. But in truth, it’s often an excuse born of fear.

When a dream or goal ignites your passion, don’t let overthinking smother the flames. Take that first imperfect step before you can psych yourself out of it. You’ll learn so much more by doing than just thinking.

A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.

Don’t wait until you feel 100% ready or have everything perfectly planned out. You’ll be waiting forever. You know I’m right!

Great accomplishments don’t happen in the comfort zone.

Sure, reflect on how to wisely move forward. But don’t get stuck over-analyzing and second guessing at the expense of meaningful progress. Trust that you’ll figure things out along the way.

Your dreams require action. The doers, not just the thinkers, change the world.

It’s scary to take risks and put yourself out there, uncertainty ahead. But you’ll only regret the chances you didn’t take. What we achieve pales in comparison to what we could have achieved if only we dared.

Stop envisioning the mountaintop view and start climbing the trail. THIS is where I often get stuck! I’m a big dreamer, but it’s harder for me to get moving sometimes.

With each step, even if small, you gain experience, confidence and momentum. Progress fuels passion. Especially when we start seeing results. 🙂

At the end of the day, few things are perfect or certain. But one thing’s for sure: overthinking your dreams will guarantee you never achieve them. 

So silence those doubtful thoughts, take a deep breath and boldly chase after the extraordinary life you envision.
