INSTINCTS. How many times you feel “I can do this” or you are overthinking? Overthinking things can create obstacles that weren’t even a problem in the first place. Maybe you’ve spent time and effort preparing for an interview, important play or a big game and you are as ready as can be until it comes time for you to actually perform. And you end up doing subpar because your mind goes into overdrive with all the negative possibilities. No matter how talented a person is, they could still choke when they have to perform and it usually comes from their own mind psyching them out thinking too much instead of acting on instinct.
If whatever you’re doing comes naturally to you, using your heart instead of your head is the way to go. Find some way to distract your mind, calm your thoughts and let your instincts take over.
