THINK BIG... by David J. Schwartz
5 Lessons from The Magic of Thinking Big
Think big! Sure, we've all heard that, but what does it mean? Author David J. Schwartz helps define that in his 1959 personal-development classic, The Magic of Thinking Big.
Thinking "big" requires a change in mindset.
They may be commonsense tactics, but serve as a great reminder in your everyday battle for success.
Try these simple ideas to keep yourself motivated:
Concentrate on the things you're good at and don't get bogged down.
"You're better than you think you are," Schwartz writes.
· Use a "big thinker's vocabulary." Try to talk in words that speak hope and happiness.
· Look toward the future. Try to see things for their potential and not just what they are today.
· Believe that your job is an important one. "That next promotion depends mostly on how you think toward your present job," Schwartz writes.
· Focus on big things, leaving triviality out of the picture. Ask yourself, "Is this really important?"
In my business I am always "busy". Saying you are busy, portraying that you are a very busy person bring about a "good" busy. being busy means business growth! (Linda Blanco)
