ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH OVERTHINKING?
You're not alone.
When Mike Peasley, PhD and I studied overthinking, there were three surprises that came up in the research.
When we asked 10,000 people if they struggle with overthinking, 99.5% of people said, “Yes.” That was the first surprise. Everyone overthinks and everyone thinks they’re the only one who does.
The second surprise was that no one overthinks compliments. There wasn’t a single person we talked to who said, “My big issue is that I’m too kind to myself internally. I’m constantly telling myself, ‘You’re a great mom! You’re doing an awesome job!’”
The problem was just the opposite. A mom would be five minutes late to pick up her kid from school and instantly play internal soundtracks that trumpeted her failure. “You’re always late! You’re the worst mom.”
Does that sound familiar? Maybe not because most of us have never really listened to how we talk to ourselves. Life’s just too busy and so our internal soundtracks, or repetitive thoughts, get to play in the background unchecked.
That was the third surprise, how few people know that a thought isn’t something you have. A thought is something you hone.
You can choose what you think. When you do, everything changes because your thoughts influence your actions which generate your results.
Over the next six weeks, I’m going to teach you how to turn your overthinking from a super problem into a superpower.
THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU
IDENTIFY BROKEN THOUGHTS
You have a soundtrack for all your relationships, hopes, dreams, goals, and every other aspect of your life.
Your brain is waiting for you each day to be told what to think - to see what kind of soundtracks you’ll choose.
Once you pick the right soundtrack, it's easier to pick the right actions which generate your results.
HI, I'M JON ACUFF
I used to be the world's biggest overthinker.
Thirteen years ago, overthinking was dominating me.
I was the king of someday, high on thought, low on motion about a litany of things I’d do eventually.
“Quit overthinking so much,” coworkers would beg.
“It’s all in your head,” my wife would implore.
“Get out of your own way,” schoolchildren would yell as I stumbled through the streets like a heavy-brained monster.
Did I want to have 1,345 thoughts about whether there would be adequate parking at the new restaurant we were going to? Did I want to donate an afternoon of brain space to reviewing something dumb I said to a friend three months ago in the grocery store? Did I want to put off asking for a raise for one more month, overthinking the myriad ways it could go wrong?
Can you relate to that? If so, I have some good news for you. It doesn’t have to be that way. Transforming my overthinking helped me hit the New York Times Bestsellers list. It helped me completely change my career. It helped me move my family to Nashville for a big adventure. It helped me in so many different ways.
But I have even better news than that. I’ve helped thousands of people just like you with overthinking and the result is always the same. If you change the way you think, you can change your whole life.
If you listen to any thought long enough, it becomes a part of your personal playlist.
Soundtracks made of music have the ability to completely transform a moment.
Restaurants know this. Movies know this. Gyms know this.
If the soundtracks you listen to are positive, your thoughts can be your best friend, propelling you on new adventures with creativity and hope. If your day is spent overthinking broken soundtracks, your thoughts can be your worst foe, holding you back from ever taking action on all the things you want in life.

START MAKE OVERTHINKING YOUR SUPERPOWER
"There is no price tag on the value of being in one of Jon's courses. He's propelled me further than I thought possible. I knew nothing about writing, speaking, or self-publishing a book, but as a direct result of learning from him I have achieved all three."
“What I love most about Jon’s course was the unexpected things that happened because of it. I absolutely expected my business to grow, and it did, but I also found a new confidence in myself that positively impacted my life in ways I didn’t expect.”
