Here are some quotes from Steven Bartlett. I still cannot find where they were originally made, but they pop up EVERYWHERE on instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

“The truth is, most problems aren’t solved with more thinking, they’re solved with less. You’ll find most of the answers you’re looking for in silence, in time and with a clear mind. If you can’t solve a problem, stop trying to.”

“Your mental health is more important than your career, money, other people’s opinions, that event you said you would attend, your partner’s mood and your family’s wishes, combined. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down.” (Well, Steven. True maybe, but how many people have the luxury of leaving their jobs OR their partners even, so they can stay sane?)

“99% of the harm is caused in your head, by you and your thoughts. I% of harm is caused by reality, what actually happens and the outcome. Mis of the time, the problem isn’t the problemm. The way you think about the problem is. You can fix most things just by fixing your thoughts.”

“If you want to feed a problem, keep thinking about it. If you want to starve a problem, take action. Problems feed off worry. Action kills anxiety.”   Bartlett is the founder of The Social Chain. I LOVE the way their website is build like a text conversation!
