... by trial and error and consistently analyzing things related to big ideas, until you've practiced enough your brain can easily establish unusual correlations and a global comprehension develops.
Other ways to increase your capacity for thinking big include problem solving, performing optimizations, providing value to other, being ambitious and mentally trying the outlandish.
The key to shifting your perspective and developing the habit of thinking big involves stepping outside of yourself and into another persona — essentially becoming someone who will help you see things bigger, better and more creatively.
You must also think from the perspective of having no limitations or fears and ask big questions persistently until the right answer comes to mind.
To think big, find the time to think proactively about your situation. If you don’t you end up in reaction mode and that’s not conducive to finding solutions and ideas that address the larger aspects of an issue.
Also, think of big problems as opportunities. The more often you solve them the better you’ll become at solving future problems.
Weaknesses are things we neglected and consistently focus on over a lifetime. They are not limitations, but rather opportunities for change.
By challenging our weaknesses we naturally strengthen our ability to deal with the unexpected and develop our arsenal of skills and resources that can be used to tackle big goals.
Big goals are only achieved by those with the willpower and resilience to keep moving forward when others give up. Those who think big understand cultivating and cultivate these traits on a daily basis even when performing the smallest of tasks.
Thinking big implies setting goals beyond your comfort zone. The bigger the difficulty the bigger the thought.
Keep in mind that setting unattainable goals is counterproductive. An unattainable goal can lead to stress, worry, fear, procrastination and a plethora of other limiting emotions and behaviors.
Ignore the details at first, or what cannot be done. Instead, focus on the big picture and on the possibilities of bringing an idea to fruition. Later, you must ask effective questions that break down the idea into workable parts — making them practical and real-life scenarios.
