Stay out of your head

I saw this talk from Tony Robbins years ago and he said a line that stuck with me. He said

“Go in your head, you’re dead”

Boy is that true.

In your head is where all doubt, fear, anxiety, and obnoxious internal narrative lives.

In times like these, people have a tendency to go in their heads. But that won’t help you.

Being objective, being extroverted and staying out of your head and in your environment, focused on the future and what’s next, that’s where solutions, dreams, goals, challenges, and excitement live.

In a time like this, it’s more important than ever to stay out of your head.

Instead, think about what’s next. Where’s the solution? What can you do? How can you improve the circumstances?

I read a book called A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger and it was all about how massively successful people over the years have focused on asking better questions that lead to game-changing solutions.

Start asking yourself questions right now and keep doing that and you’ll find that your mind will answer up.

Right now, I find myself asking questions like “what’s next?” “What else can I do?” “How can I do more?” “Where’s the opportunity?”

That’s really what’s needed right now of you and I. People who are pushing past the fear, looking beyond the immediate situation and starting to create a future and taking actions to make it so.

Don’t wait. Get out of your head and put your creative energy into solving problems.

Regardless of what the news tells, what other people opine and any other noise surrounding this current situation – there is an end to it and the faster people focus on recovery and bouncing back through innovation, speed and industriousness – the faster we will get to the other side.

Stay out of your head, find the path and take it with ferocity.
