"If you are going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big" -Donald Trump
Thinking big sounds like such a simple concept but it's so difficult for so many people to do. How do you get started thinking big? Well, this is a mindset, it's an attitude; it's a whole thing! Thinking big starts with being thorough. Don't count on happenstance. Know beforehand if something will work or not.
Thinking big brings into your life bigger ideas, bigger plans and bigger success.It is saidthat thoughts create the circumstances and situations of life. This means that if you think big, you will achieve big success, but if you think small, you will not reach far and high.
So How Can You Mold Yourself To Think Big?
1. Believe in yourself and start acting now the way you will when you reach a higher level of achievement. Develop an attitude that you are worth a lot and others will respond by valuing you the same way.
2. Start everyday with a little pep talk to yourself along the lines of "Today is a great day. I have a great profession. Its great to be alive.There are plenty of opportunities all around for me to do some great things today.
3. Make a personal commitment to do something great - and then scramble to find a way to do it.
4. Get a mentor - someone who can help you jump to a new level faster than you could manage on your own. Find an authority figure in your industry and get his or her advice and encouragement on a regular basis.
5. Keep setting the bar higher all the time - by always striving to outdo your own accomplishments. When you're constantly trying to outdo yourself, great things can happen.
6. Conquer your doubts and ditch them- by developing your own rock solid storehouse of self-belief. Nobody knows with certainty what the future holds so assume that you will succeed and work towards that as a goal. Other people will take their cues from you so if you positively ooze the attitude you're worth listening to , people will do exactly that. If you value yourself, others will too.Never look for approval from others. but generate your own self-belief by believing in your own competence and worth.
7. Hang out with other people who think big - because they will have an impact on your thinking as well.Meet with other big thinkers regularly and swap ideas, voice opinions, share success stories and your dreams.. While you can and should be approachable, be selective about who your friends are. It's best to spend the majority of your time interacting with people who genuinely want you to be successful.Negative friends can sap your energy and throw up roadblocks which is what you don't need.
8. Be prepared for big setbacks on the way to big achievements - they're part and parcel of the territory. Thinking big always means big setbacks. What matters most is how you respond to those setbacks. Great achievers in every field analyze their failures in order to find new ways of succeeding in the future and you should do the same. View your failures as temporary diversions and continue to think big about the future. Fill your mind with your most audacious plan for the future and then get to work making that happen.
9. Get into the habit of speaking your mind - because top achievers want their thoughts to be known. They want others to know what they have to say is important. Don't be afraid of what others think. Speak up!
10. Match big thoughts with big actions as fast as you can. This gives you the credibility which is essential. Drop your excuses and start doing what's required to succeed. By all means start small but then keep pushing yourself to do bigger things, one step at a time. It's not where you start that matters but what you learn as you go along. Remind yourself your capacity to do anything is just a state of mind so start thinking you can do more and pretty soon that's exactly the situation you'll find yourself in.
Thinking big can transform your life; and for this to happen, you need the faith that you can succeed. You need to adopt a positive attitude and take positive action.Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve!
