Everyone wants to be able to make lots of moola. When you are over eager & anxious to bring in more money, you can let the millions of thoughts that flow through your mind outweigh your plans to prosperity. Overthinking is not necessarily a bad thing when you make it work for you instead of against you.
I have experienced overwhelm and overthinking while trying to make more money. As a school teacher, I made a decent living, but I knew there was lots of untapped potential to make more money in education. I returned to school, got a Master’s and began my quest to gain more money through promotions and raises. For two to three painful years, I tried and tried to make more money but was unsuccessful at gaining the promotions I applied for. I was highly qualified but let the tendency to overthink trick me out of my ability to make more money. One of my biggest weakness was overthinking that the skills I had DID NOT make me capable of performing the job I was applying for. Since I was a first generational EVERYTHING, I kept telling myself I was not good enough. I would actually be in an interview and my mind would be going 100 miles an hour thinking about why I would not get the job. My thoughts won! I did not get the promotions I applied for… over and over again.
Today, I now am able to rationally use my overthinking to get the money I deserve. Below are some of the same exact tips I used to take advantage of my overworked brain.

Right Your Wrongs. Your faulty thoughts are helping you make the wrong choices about the right actions to take. You already have told yourself obsessively that you have all of what is wrong. You have been worrying about all of the weaknesses for days and possibly years. Creatively reword those “wrongs” into a list of your strengths. For example, instead of overthinking that you are not a good communicator, state that you are a great communicator because you carefully select your words before speaking. Flip the flops.
Take your strengths to the 2nd Power. Don’t label your potential to overthink as a weakness. Overthinking, when used effectively and strategically, can place you on a platform above co-workers and competition.
Don’t insecurely hide behind your abundance of knowledge aka overthinking. Use your creative greatness. Think about positive ways to present those unique ideas to your supervisor or into your business. It can be your above the norm driving force to make more money. Money making ventures exist at the very brink of where no one else is brave enough to think because of fear… except the overthinker.
Check this scenario out! Suppose you want to ask for a promotion but continue to let overthinking stop you. Make a list of your beliefs about what can go wrong when you ask for a promotion. Maybe you are worried about the supervisor focusing on a project that you submitted late. An overthought is the wrong way to approach a promotion. Instead focus on the benefits you gained from being a little late on the project such as the increase in sales that resulted.
