It’s estimated that we have about 60,000 thoughts a day (the thought that just come into your head is one of them).
As a high anxiety sufferer (over-thinker) you could probably add another 20,000 to that stat.
There’s only one thing that projects these thoughts into reality, and that’s feeling.
THOUGHT > DISMISS
THOUGHT > FEELING > REALITY
The reason anxiety and stress are so powerful is because they create bags of feeling generated by unwanted and unpleasant ‘what if…' thoughts (feelings like worry, apprehension, and despair).
So, rather than being dismissed, thoughts related to anxiety and stress are projected into reality.
Focus is the Key to Overcoming Unwanted Thoughts
If Steve Jobs didn’t have Apple products to invent, or Einstein didn’t focus on cracking the theory of relativity, their powerful minds would have probably struggled with excessive and unwanted thoughts too.
As a high anxiety sufferer you have a naturally creative mind - more active than the average. This gift can create an unwanted reality filled with more anxiety and stress, or, if you choose to focus on what you want, it can take you wherever you want to go.
