At some point in your life you have or will over-think a situation. There is nothing wrong with being sure about something, but excessive thinking can be detrimental to your success. Over-thinking is basically when one prolongs a process because they haven't come to a final decision. It can also be associated with people who seek perfection or with those who worry too much. Over-thinking provides two results; you persuade yourself to do what you had initially planned or you can persuade yourself against it. When over-thinking goes wrong, you may actually end up with nothing at all.  Many times when you over-think something you are not satisfied until you make a definite decision. Other times, thinking to much can be used as an excuse for not making a decision. So many times people say, "I'm not sure yet, or I'm still thinking". This may be out of fear of failure, rejection, or they just may have difficulty making up their mind. Thoughts are meant to be shared, don't try to store everything in your brain. Sometimes, sharing your thoughts with others will give you that additional push needed to put your ideas into motion.  If you find yourself thinking about something too hard, take a break and come back to it. The break may refresh your mind and provide you with the answer that you need. You have those who over-think and follow through, and those who over-think and don't follow through. If you over-think but still follow through, you might just be creating unnecessary stress which could make your task appear harder to accomplish. If you are over-thinking and not following through on anything, then you are just wasting your time. Never let a thought hold you back from where you should be in life. Sometimes, you just have to clear your mind and "follow your heart."

  1. Naomi that is excellent advice. However i had to learn it the hard way and go in and out of mental health facilities before i realized the the lord is in control of every situation in our life. I worried too much concerning getting custody of you and your sister from 2003-2007 and in one day God intervene and she was in my custody. Since i have learn not to stress to much i am a more happier person and i share that same advice with others.
