A close friend of mine once told me to not over think, as according to her, “thinking can also be a disease.” Who was I to argue, since she along with her family had been coping with the death of their mother for several years.
There have been many occasions where I drift away and think, think even more, and think again. This affects the actual doing, you know the process that produces results … yeah that thing. There is a voice in all of us that says, “no you’re no good, no you can’t do this, what will people say,” the list goes on. But ultimately, to achieve results one must ignore this type of thinking and actually do what is in sync with your destiny.
One day, my mum told me to do the dishes. She walked out the house and I went to look at the kitchen sink. It was full of plates, immediately I thought to myself that I’ll do it later. Hours went by and I would think, “mum will be back soon, I must wash those dishes.” But it was until I went spontaneously to the kitchen for a drink that I just did, without the lazy thinking, started to wash them one by one.
In short, negative thinking will waste your energy, you must focus on your inner stillness that directs you to results. If you have trouble in finding your inner stillness, firstly ignore the negative voice and focus on sound much like transcendental meditation. If there happens to be no sound, listen to the sound of you breathing.
