The Power of Thinking Big

Why limit your possibilities by limiting your expectations?

Never underestimate the power of your thoughts – and make them BIG. All inventions start off as big ideas, and big thinkers can and have changed the world. Thinking big widens your horizons, it take you out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.  

I, as most of us have heard of the term “Think Big”.  Recently, a friend of mine was saying that I should think bigger, “reach for the stars to get the moon”.  Something about what he said resonated with me and I started to take a look at my life and asked exactly what is this? And how can I do this in my life? And how can other people use this in their lives.  

We have all had someone tell us modestly about some small thing they want. Often they even clarify that they do not want to expect too much, since a small success is enough for them. I hear details about why they don’t want to be greedy and shoot for the moon or have the universe think they are expecting too much. When you don’t feel good about yourself, it’s hard to think big. But that’s exactly what you should be doing to change your mindset. Otherwise, you are letting the Universe know that you do not deserve or need much, and guess what your response will be. Not nearly as much as it could be. Why limit your possibilities by limiting your expectations?  People who achieve big avoid this thinking by setting themselves big goals. If we are stretching for something rather than coasting towards something, we are naturally going to achieve more, and get further, in less time. 

The more guidelines and wisdom we have, the better we can navigate through the field of material reality to obtain the life of our dreams.  So how can you start thinking big in your life. First, look at what you are right now. What are you doing or striving for and ask yourself how can I do this bigger! Put no limits on your goals. Go for bigger and better, and have the passion, drive and energy to make your dreams into reality.

It begins with taking the first step into faith and sending out a bigger expectations than you normally do. As you get results, it gets easier. If you think and act unworthy of good, you settle for bits of joy. Let go of limitations about setting goals for yourself.

Visualize Without Restraint. It is not a lack of resources that holds people back, but a lack of resourcefulness. A big thinker visualizes what is possible in the future, rather than being stuck in the present. Look at things not as they are now, but as they can be – without constraints. Visualization adds value to everything. This mental rehearsal gives you a compelling taste of what your vision will be like in reality, and the impetus to make it happen. Come up with creative solutions to realize your goals.  I use to visualize myself being on the radio, and when my opportunity came, it felt totally natural to be speaking into a microphone.  Did I mention I had no prior experience in radio, but it seems I’m a natural.

Start thinking big in the beginning, in the planning stages.  It can be much easier to succeed by thinking big, rather than thinking small. There is less competition at the top of the scale than there is at the bottom, so it’s more advantageous to go large and reach for the stars. For example there are thousands of businesses offering services for owners of startups and small to medium business’s but very few specializing in services for the owners of the largest global businesses. Starting big can actually be easier.
