It’s ok to think. Everyone has to otherwise, you’re just a sack of potatoes or worse, mush. The problem is, some people think too much. In fact, all of us have overthought something and then later regretted not taking that decision.

If you want to avoid the problem of overthinking, then today’s your lucky day! Hoorah, you better get your helmet on, trooper, cause we are rolling thunder with the Sarge today! 

#1. Existentialism

You Only Live Once right? In a sense, I agree. Life is wonderful and you might as well take as many risks as you can cause you’ll have the thrill and excitement of risk taking or you’ll die trying. However, don’t just jump the gun, sunshine, cause it might land you a trip to the sheriff’s office and an overnight stay too. 

#2. Distract

This is important because it allows you to think of other things aside from that one topic you were overthinking about. Watch TV, get laid, shoot some guns, pop the booze or rob a bank, steal a car. Or just play computer games and read books. The trick is to keep yourself occupied to prevent you from thinking too much on something.

#3. Fear

Change your viewpoint on fear. As the US Marines say: “Pain is fear/weakness leaving the body”, so should you follow this adage. You may encounter it but eventually, you’ll have to stand your ground and say to yourself that you’re not gonna back down and take the risk. Fear is only as good as you perceive it to be. No fear.

#4. Your best

You have to accept that you’re not perfect and whatever you did, as long as you did it to the best of your abilities, is acceptable. Don’t be a sloth, though. If you did something without putting much effort then it really isn’t your best because you could do more.
