Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking
points - Details)
It steals time, creativity, and goals. It’s the most expensive, least productive thing companies invest in without even knowing it. And it’s an epidemic. When New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff changed his life by transforming his overthinking, he wondered if other people might benefit from what he discovered. He commissioned a research study to ask 10,000 people if they struggle with overthinking too, and 99.5 percent said, "Yes!"
The good news is that in Soundtracks, Acuff offers a proven plan to change overthinking from a super problem into a superpower.
When we don’t control our thoughts, our thoughts control us. If our days are full of broken soundtracks, thoughts are our worst enemy, holding us back from the things we really want. But the solution to overthinking isn’t to stop thinking. The solution is running our brains with better soundtracks. Once we learn how to choose our soundtracks, thoughts become our best friend, propelling us toward our goals.
If you want to tap into the surprising power of overthinking and give your dreams more time and creativity, learn how to DJ the soundtracks that define you. If you can worry, you can wonder. If you can doubt, you can dominate. If you can spin, you can soar.
From the Publisher
You know that thought that keeps you up at night? That one you’ve been thinking about for years? Let’s do something about that.
Soundtracks made of music have the ability to completely transform a moment, but soundtracks made of thoughts are even more powerful.
When you don’t create, curate, and choose what soundtracks you’ll listen to, the music doesn’t stop. You
just hear a bunch of songs you don’t like.
Overthinking is essentially when your brain spins on a thought or an idea for longer than you anticipated.
The good news is that you’re bigger than your brain. It’s just one part of you, and it’s under your control. The same brain that told you for years that you couldn’t do something can be taught to tell you just the opposite.
Your brain is waiting for you each day. It’s waiting to be told what to think. It’s waiting to see what kind of soundtracks you’ll choose.
It’s waiting to see if you really want to build a different life.
