How BIG are you thinking?
Sometimes, thinking big can have a tremendously positive affect on your life. When you think big, you don’t think of coming up short or failing to achieve something. You think of you biggest, most rewarding goal and stop at nothing until you achieve it. Do you want to become a millionaire? Do you want to be the CEO of your own company? Well, there is no reason why those things can’t happen. You just have to think big enough and work toward your lofty goals.
- Write down a BHAG. What’s a BHAG? It is a BIG Hair Audacious Goal. If you don’t have one, I highly suggest you write one down and look at it or read it every day. This will instill in your mind these big thoughts and soon enough, over time, allow you to view it as possible.
- Use mental imagery. There is tremendous power in our thoughts and how they can drive results. The next time you have a big presentation or are preparing for a big game, use imagery beforehand. Picture yourself dominating and coming out victorious. Chances are you will perform better if you picture yourself doing so first.
- Study successful people. People who have achieved what you hope to in your lifetime have likely left clues about how to get there. Read books, watch videos, research articles, and study what they have done to become rock stars.
- Keep a curiosity mindset. Seek for ideas instead of dwell on problems. If you have a growth mindset and focus on what you can control, you will become successful and achieve your BHAG.
