When it comes to big thinking, it is important that you clearly understand exactly what big thinking is and what it entails. If you think about it, you can’t successfully put any process into place if you don’t understand that process first. So let’s take a look at what thinking big involves.
As you can tell from the name, thinking big is a mental process. Thinking big is about recognizing that you can accomplish whatever you want, no matter how big the dream, if you believe in yourself and are willing to put in the work that will allow you to make that dream a reality. Yet, despite being a mental process, thinking big isn’t restricted only to thought. It is also about taking action on your positive thoughts and conquering you fears and inhibitions so that you get successfully to your goal.
Change can be scary!
A lot of people don’t succeed at the process of thinking big for the same reason. They simply won’t change the way that they think. You see changing the way that you think is one of the most important changes that you can make. However, change is frightening to most people. It is this fear that condemns these people to continue thinking small and, therefore, acting small. Why is this so? For one very simple reason – our thoughts have a direct effect on how we act. On the other hand, how we act also has a direct effect on how we think. Thought and action are tied together. They are a two way street. Behavioral traffic freely goes both ways – from thought to action and from action to thought. Each one changes the other and both can move you forward or hold you back, depending on your state of mind.
Create a new mindset
So, it is only when you have a good handle on how thought and action interact can you begin to purposefully control your own big thoughts. This is because big thinking must be a way of life. There is no room for half measures or back sliding behavior. You must be committed to eliminating all negative thoughts and actions from your life. You must be committed to believing in yourself and believing in your dreams as well. There is no other way. Any other path leads back to small thoughts, small actions and a small and narrow world view. So, you have a choice...it’s either go big or go small when it comes to the process of creating success. Which will you choose?
