Too many of you make zero progress in your personal and professional life, because you think too much…

You over-analyze…

You consider every single thing that could go wrong…

You worry about what other people are going to think or say…

…and you spend so much time doing so, that you never end up taking action or doing anything significant in life.

Then, you end up in a situation, years down the road, where you have regret…

You wish you would have taken the chance…

You wish you would have taken action…

You wonder what could have been…

All because you overthink things...

And talked yourself out of it.

So quit overthinking…

Start taking action.

THE MAIN REASON WHY YOU OVERTHINK

Most of you overthink, because you’re looking for the easy way out.

You’re looking to cut corners, because you aren’t willing to do the hard work.

Well here’s the truth…

There is no easy way out.

Take it from somebody who's looked for every alternative option in the book.

It doesn’t exist.

…and even if it did…

The easy route will not teach you the skills you need to sustain the results you get long-term.

Stop paralyzing yourself out of your fear of doing the work.

You can’t dip your feet in the water and make it to the other end of the pool.

Jump in and start swimming.

The water isn’t that bad…

Your thoughts just make it out to be that way.

IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OR SAY

Another thing that people overanalyze is what others are going to think or say.

Guess what…

You have no idea how other people are going to react.

…and what does it matter anyway?

If you’re too scared to chase your goals and dreams because of what Tom at the office has to say about it…

You aren’t cut out for success.

That’s it.

If you refuse to step outside of your comfort zone to try something because Aunt Suzie will call you stupid…

You're getting in your own way and holding yourself back.

You’re making assumptions about how people are going to react to your decisions, when the reality is this…

It’s impossible to tell how other people are going to react.

Which means your fear is strictly based on theory…

Not reality.

Plus, nobody ever talks about this, but…

The people that you’re worried will criticize you ... will be the same people you won’t care about 5-10 years down the road.

That’s not me being insensitive…

It’s just the truth.

YOU’LL NEVER HAVE THE PERFECT FORMULA OFF THE BAT

A lot of you are also looking for the perfect plan before you get going.

Well, I hate to break it to you…

But the perfect plan doesn’t exist.

Even if it did ... you will never find it before you get started…

…and to think otherwise is naive and insulting to anybody who has actually built something from the ground up.

Is your ego so big that you, with 0 experience, actually think you can come up with a better solution than the people who have been at their craft for 20+ years?

You can’t.

HOW DO YOU BREAK THE HABIT OF OVERTHINKING?

The best way to break your habit of overthinking is to just take action.

The longer you wait…

The worse things are going to get.

Your inaction is what causes the overthinking.

Quit looking for the corner to cut…

Start moving…

You will find ways to be more efficient along the journey.

…and it won’t be by cutting corners.

Quit worrying about what other people are going to say or do…

These people will mean nothing to you in 5-10 years after you’ve actually done something.

Quit waiting until you have the perfect plan to take action…

You will be waiting a lifetime.

The best plans come from years of experience…

It’s going to require you to fail…

Then adjust…

Fail again…

Make more adjustments…

…rinse and repeat a thousand times over.

That’s part of the process.

That's the only way you’ll be your best

…and it's a key part of the process that you wouldn’t want to miss anyway.

TAKE ACTION TODAY

The longer you wait…

The harder it’s going to be for you to reach your goals.

You’re too smart for your own good.

If you could just drop all your limiting thoughts and start taking action…

It would serve you greatly.

So that’s exactly what you need to do.

Quit waiting…

Quit worrying…

Quit over-analyzing…

Start taking action, and you will be successful.

Don’t just "try”...

Go all in.

All it takes is one foot in front of the other.

You’ve got this.
