How do I think BIG when I’m in the grinder all day for work and then I have a family to go home to that takes up the rest of my time?
I know that feeling, its like your lost in the weeds and you think there’s no way you can do anything else because you’re barely hanging on to what you’ve got.
Today I’d like to talk about how to THINK BIG! As many of you know if you don’t think big, you’ll never be big. When you think about amazing people who have accomplished so much in their life, they were always thinking BIG.
“Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.” ― David J. Schwartz
With that said I want to talk about why thinking big is critical to your life and what we can do to help you think big.
The ability to ‘Think BIG’ is one of the cornerstones of extreme success. Thinking big is being able to DREAM and visualize what you can achieve at a high level with no limits on your thinking. It is about being open-minded, positive, creative and seeing opportunity in the big picture.
Most of the times when people say it can’t be done, they actually know what it will take to get it done. They just aren’t willing to go the distance or put in the time. So rather than saying that it can’t be done, lets say that it can be done, if..
Now there will always be the haters. I know when I started telling people my visions of leaving my 9-5 and pulling out money from my 401 k to invest in buying my first business, everyone said I was crazy! Thinking big scares people, but its where extreme success truly lies.
So how can we start getting better at THINKING BIG?
Start with being fearless. If you’ve ever heard any of our podcasts or read any of our other blogs, I reference FEAR quite often. It’s because I believe that the greatest things in life are put on the other side of fear. The only way to those great things is going directly through fear.
Screw the non-believers. The people that want to tell you that you can’t or shouldn’t only want you to be miserable like the rest of the world. I believe in you and I know you can achieve great things.
Get an idea notebook. The reality of it is that we all have great ideas from time to time, and now that your ready to act on a big idea, you need to be writing your ideas down and then expanding the big ideas. Your brain is like a muscle and if you exercise it you’ll start to see better and bigger things come from it.
Inspire others. Big thinkers have a way with connecting with individuals around them and attract them. The bigger you think and the more you can INSPIRE others, the more people you can get on board. The more people that you can get on board the easier and quicker your big thinking comes to fruition.
Act today. The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Lets take that first step today and start tracking your progress. The big idea will get closer and closer each and every day, and then your dreams can eventually turn into a reality.
Never underestimate yourself. You are POWERFUL. You are capable. You can achieve big things.
I want to end with a fantastic quote.
“Don't live the same day over and over again and call that a life. Life is about evolving mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.” ― Germany Kent
