Thinking Big

  • Most people go through life with small ambitions, small goals, thinking small, and they only rise to the size of their dreams.
  • All of us, more than we recognize, are products of the thinking around us. And much of this thinking is little, not big.

By thinking big, what’s now called “10x” thinking, you can do great, huge things, so long as you believe in yourself and follow through on the pursuit of those huge goals.

  • Think little goals and expect little achievements.
  • Think big goals and win big success.

BUILD CONFIDENCE AND DESTROY FEAR:

Lack of confidence is created by fear. Fear is real and the sure of the fear is not just an imagination. Imagining you don’t have fear might help in short run but will never benefit in log run. Even though fear is real, it’s psychological. Admitting no one is born with confidence, it is just the matter of hard work can cure fear. Action cures fear whereas the postponement and indecision only fertilises the fear. Anytime next you experience fear, isolate fear and steady yourself, have hope and back it off by action.

TYPES OF FEAR AND ACTION TO OVERCOME THEM:

Embarrassment because of personal appearance: Practise better grooming.

Fear of losing an important customer: Build confidence by giving better service.

Fear of falling examination: Convert worry time to study time.

Fear of things beyond your control: Pray.

Fear of being physically hurt by something you can’t control: Switch attention to something else.

Thought!

Always remember your brain is much like a bank, where thoughts get deposited. You can never withdraw the thought that you never deposited. Always make sure the thought you deposit will be the one you’ll be looking for when you withdraw. Never deposit negative thoughts like fear.

Idea into Big Reality

Idea into Big Reality

Write your ideas in a paper or in any platform that is tangible. Our mind is vulnerable to forget these many ideas.

Also, we can evaluate more and see the loopholes in our ideas when we can see and read it on a paper.

It has more selling power also to other people because it can be hard for them to imagine these ideas when you are presenting it through words only.

Believe

Believe

What we believe will more likely to happen. Therefore, we should eliminate the thinking of "failure". Instead, think of "success" and our mind will find ways on how to be successful in everything.

My own summary

Our appearances talk.

Our thoughts regulate our action, our actions regulate our results or job performances, are judged by people.

Whatever career we are having right now, we have to make up our mind that we are making a large scale project.

Think big.

Always think of the happy experiences in job than negative things.

Take action!!

Move A Mountain

Move A Mountain

1. When you believe you can do It, the "how to do it" develops

2. Those who believe they can move mountains, do. Those who believe they can’t, cannot. Belief triggers the power to do

3. TheOkay-I’ll-give-it-a-try-but-I-don’t-think-it-will-work” attitude produces failures. Disbelief is negative power. When the mind disbelieves or doubts, the mind attracts “reasons” to support the disbelief.

4. Doubt, disbelief, the subconscious will to fail, the not really wanting to succeed, is responsible for most failures.
