Thinking too much is a big problem I have. I read some Ekhart Tolle and that does do some meditative help, but it's still extremely hard to be fully present and not have my thoughts run all over the place. These past few weeks, I have been working on a new endeavor, which is starting an online marketing agency. I realize the market has a problem and many small businesses are missing out on potential customers by still incorporating old school marketing tactics. I see billboards and signs of restaurants instead of a Facebook page and a Instagram page and it makes me scratch my head.These small business owners are working very hard and making sure their customers get a great experience, but they are doing very little in bringing in new potential customers.
During these past few weeks, I realized that I fear the future way too much and which in fact hinders my progress. I fear making phone calls and approaching business owners, I fear putting myself out there and telling people how I can help. Then, I realize that this problem is much more deeper than the fear of failing in business.Its more deeper than the fear of rejection. It's my thoughts thats are too focused on a negative future instead of being focused on an ambitious present.
We've all read or seen those sayings "Our thoughts are powerful beyond measure", Im experiencing that because every time I have negative thoughts about the future, I stagnate and either not do anything at all, or I go back 10 steps and delete everything I had. I've written articles about this before, thoughts can honestly mess your life up. Stop thinking about the future especially with a negative eye. Stop thinking about all the screw ups you had in the past and just stay focused on your ambitious and strong present. This mindset will help you make that phone call, write that email, smile and reach out for that hand shake. Best thing you can do to move forward is to stop thinking too much and put yourself in uncomfortable situations. This mindset has gotten me up and running and so far Ive had 3 client meetings which is better than no company started at all, which would have been my reality if I didn't make the thinking shift.
