How to Think as Big as You Really Are


We live in an environment where we have been conditioned to think small, simplify our lives and to overall expect less and demand less from life. The world tells us that “whatever will be will be”, that “fate” is in complete control of our destinies. So forget those big dreams, forget that bigger house, forget the better life. Be resigned with what you have.
I once read somewhere, as an experiment, someone put two advertisements in the newspaper. Both were for the same job with the exact same job description, but one of them offered to pay a salary that was double the one of the other. Strangely, about ten times more people applied for the lower paid job. Yet, the world tells us that there’s too much competition for the top spots in life. This experiment clearly disproves that.
People think small. And that’s why they fail. The size of our success is limited only by the size of our thinking. You can have anything you want, but you have to believe that you can achieve it. The problem with most of us it that we believe that there isn’t enough to go around and so they mustn’t take more than their fair share. But, money and success do not run out- the universe keeps expanding and making more of it. It’s such a pity that we don’t think big enough to ask for it!
So many people feel trapped in their lives of tiny dreams, of getting by, of constantly craving more and yet thinking themselves undeserving of more. Is this how you want to live your life? Open your mind, your imagination, expand the size of your thinking and your drive for success and get to work. Think big and make those dreams happen!
