There’s an old bumper sticker quote that goes, “Don’t believe everything you think.” But we’ve all done it. It starts as a tiny idea or worry that we push to the back burner. Then slowly over time, it grows and grows until we eventually act on it or let it dictate our decisions.
Changing our mindset is a choice, but it’s easy to forget that we are in the driver’s seat when it comes to our thoughts. That’s why I asked my good friend Jon Acuff to join me on the show today. Jon is whip-smart, funny and a New York Times bestselling author, but more than that, he’s on a mission to help others flip the script on overthinking and turn it into a superpower.
Throughout our conversation, he shares what he’s learned throughout his research on overthinking and talks about the tools we need to master our thoughts. I loved this conversation, and I just know you’ll love his unique blend of humor, honesty and hope.
