I've written about my chronic overthinking in the past.
Have you ever heard the name Katrina Webb?
I'll admit that until last week, I hadn't.
She's is an Australian Paralympic Athlete.
She has won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in 3 Olympics.
And last week she came to my workplace to give a speech on setting and achieving goals,
and overcoming fears.
She spoke about overcoming adversity,
accepting our own vulnerability,
and using mindfulness to quiet the mind.
Everyone in the room was captivated,
not only by her sheer determination to succeed,
but by her honesty and conviction.
Stories of own personal fears and challenges were relatable.
In sharing her experiences of self-doubt and her strategies to overcome her negative thinking,
she was able to unite us.
Often, we are not unique in our fears,
We are unique in how we choose to deal with them.
