Think big, what does this mean? How do you know if you are thinking big? Here are four tips from the bestselling book “The one thing” :
- A rule of thumb is whatever your goal is, double it. If your goal is 10, think how do I reach 20?
- Don’t order off the menu. To quote Apple’s 1997 Think differently campaign:, Einstein, Hitchcock and Gandhi thought differently and “people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the only ones who do”
- Act boldly: thinking without action accomplishes nothing. Imagine what your best life looks like. Can’t imagine it? Research the people who are successful. Success leaves clues, what are the habits of success?
- Don’t fear failure. Extraordinary results are built on failures as well as results. When you fail, stop and ask what worked and what didn’t, learn from your mistakes and grow. The biggest successes had big failures on the way: Ford, Lincoln, Edison. Failure is part of learning and ultimately success.
