From Worries to Wins: End Catastrophic Thinking and Take Control of Your Negative Thoughts

Does your self-talk often spiral into irrational worst-case scenarios of what’s about to go wrong? There’s a word for that: catastrophizing!

Catastrophic thinking can make you anxious, with that awful feeling of foreboding or anxiety that something must be about to go wrong. We end up inserting fear, or a ‘false guilt’ into our thought patterns that can become permeated with negative thinking that gets us stuck – unable to step up and have a plan for whatever is actually going on.

Valorie is expertly encouraging us to ‘think about what we are thinking about,’ to shine a light on the scenario at hand and question the likelihood of our catastrophizing coming to pass.

Learn how to keep a lid on your catastrophic thinking in this relatable episode of Successful Women Think Differently. It needn’t steal your joy! Let’s find out how.
