Sit Down With Owen Colgan
Owen gives some insight into how he dealt with that little negative voice we all have.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with the very funny Owen Colgan. Owen has definitely chosen the path less travelled, pursuing a career in stand up comedy. I was very excited to sit down and talk with him and see the mentality of a man that can get up on stage on his own and perform in-front of people.
Here is the little chat we had:
We all have that little negative voice in our head that tells us were not good enough and that we shouldn't do things. The more we listen to that little voice the louder it gets and it starts to become the only one that we hear.
I personally got stuck listening to that negative voice for a few years and it got to the stage where I couldn't even enjoy time with my family or friends because I had this constant worry that I wasn't good enough or wasn't funny enough.
You have to take control of your thoughts and start focusing on the positive voice. Start telling yourself that the negative voice isn't a real representation of how you feel about yourself.
Once you learn to control that negative voice you can do anything.
Also an important point I took from making this video is that is ok to feel anxious ( I was nervous a hell making this video). Everyone has anxiety but its learning to accept that its always going to be there and learning how to mange it rather that letting it control you.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did sitting down with Owen. An absolute Legend.
