The Mary Marantz Show

Apr 6, 2021

Do you struggle with overthinking every little thing?

Perhaps you feel paralyzed to move forward because your brain is on overdrive. If you can relate, today’s episode is for you!

Today Mary is joined by six time New York Times Bestselling author and author of a brand new book, Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking, Jon Acuff.

For over 20 years Jon has helped some of the biggest brands in the world tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, Staples, and the Dave Ramsey Team. In his brand new book, Soundtracks, just hitting shelves today, Jon talks about how overthinking is actually not a personality trait; it is the sneakiest form of fear.

In fact, Jon commissioned a research study to ask 10,000 people if they struggle with overthinking too, and 99.5 percent said, "Yes!" The good news is that Soundtracks offers a proven plan to change overthinking from a super problem into a superpower.

On today’s episode Mary and Jon:

  • Discuss the definition of overthinking and what this means for your life, productivity, and creativity;
  • Talk about one of the biggest mistakes we make as overthinkers and what we can do about it; and,
  • Dive into the impact of positive vs. negative soundtracks in your life.

After listening, you will:

  • Be equipped to flip the script on the broken, negative soundtracks playing on repeat in your head and turn them into powerful anthems;
  • Learn how to control your thoughts so that your thoughts don’t control you; and,
  • Be ready to embrace your thoughts as a powerful tool to propel you toward your goals.

If you are ready to learn how to DJ the soundtracks that define you, tap into the surprising power of overthinking, and give your dreams more time and creativity then this episode is not to be missed!
