How to Think BIG

How to Think BIG

How Big is Your Success?

“I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you
might as well think big.”-Donald Trump

Well that depends on how big you can think. You deserve abundance in your life to the fullest extent possible, which is infinite, so how big can you think? People who are successful do not put limitations on themselves, so they are naturally big thinkers, or have become big thinkers by force of habit.

Unfortunately, our modern world has placed a taboo for many on thinking big. There is so much negativity all over the place that people become afraid to share a big idea for fear of what we discussed earlier, ridicule, rejection, etc. The ridicule may even come from people that really do mean well, such as a parent or a friend for example. They may just be trying to “protect” you from failure because they themselves are too small of a person to know it can be done, and it can be done by you. People who are successful will know that you can do anything you put your mind to, no matter how big it is.

Realize that many of these people do mean well, while others are just so ignorant, they can barely walk down the street without bumping into something. I’ll give you a few examples from my own experiences on this.

A family member of mine, who is very wealthy, is always very supportive of everything I have ever done. He has always told me, “You can do anything you put your mind to, Jeff. Just keep on trying.” This man has a successful wealth mindset. He has passed this success mindset onto his son as well, and his life is one of luxury yachts, a private jet, world travel, etc. He has been a great inspiration in my life for what is possible. He has no hang ups about success, no negative beliefs about what can or can’t be done. He just does it.

Another family member of mine saw how supportive we are of each other in network marketing. He proceeded to say “Y’all are just blowing smoke up each other’s ass, telling each other how great you are….You need to get to work and make something of yourself with a real job and quit all this ‘pie in the sky’ bullshit.” Needless to say, this was hurtful. I couldn’t believe that someone could be so cruel, who was supposed to be loving and supportive. For him though, he thought he was telling me what I needed to hear, so he cannot be faulted. The comment was for my own good at heart. You see, he was coming from his own experience. He had never been introduced to true passive income or the kind of support that one receives from a team like we do in network marketing, and therefore was rejecting the idea, calling it lazy. Even though he’d heard about it, he had anger on the inside because somewhere deep down, he wished his life was that way. He wants passive income, he wants supportive friends, he wants happiness in his life. This was a big lesson for me on “considering the source.”

Then another family member, a late comer by marriage, told me I was “crazy” for wanting to have the level of success like the previous man. He literally said, “You’re crazy….” This is someone that is a very nice man, and he is a lot of fun to be around, but his mindset is not set up for wealth. He has never achieved a great level of financial success; neither have many people in his circle of friends. He also tends to have negative imagery of money and people who are wealthy, which will obviously cause him to subconsciously limit his own financial success.

So, in these three examples, one hurt, one felt good, and another aggravated me but didn’t faze me. I have learned to take advice from the one who is the way you want to be. Therefore, if I want financial success, I will take advice from the man with financial success. Always take advice from the ones who are most like you want to be. Do not limit your thinking based on the assumptions of the unaccomplished and the small minded. You are an infinitely abundant being, and the only difference between you and them, is that you are now aware of it!

Abundance in life is reserved for those who think abundantly, so I would encourage you to do away with any negative beliefs or “counter-intentions” you have regarding money, wealth, prosperity, and abundance. Your future wealth depends on it!
