However “big” you’re thinking right now, it’s probably too small.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that when you are thinking big, in reality you’re thinking small.
There’s always a bigger big.
When I was in my mid-20s, I thought I was thinking big.
But when I look back now, I realize, “Wow, was I thinking small! Too bad I wasn’t thinking bigger. I would have accomplished more, faster.”
So don’t do what your latest big thought was.
Instead, think bigger. Ask yourself, “What is even bigger than what I’m thinking, because that’s what I really want to do?”
Right now, think about taking a vacation, and think big about it.
Reflect on that vacation for a moment.
How would your big vacation compare to a big vacation planned by Sir Richard Branson or Bill Gates?
Yes, they likely make more money than you do, but might that fact be because they can think bigger about making money?
My point is, there is always a bigger big.
If you can’t imagine it, you will never achieve it.
For example, a friend of mine started six innovative companies, from experimental aircraft to smart phone and tablet apps, all without investors. Three were leaders in the U.S. in the first year.
My guess is that you have your own examples of times when you thought big and then bigger, with the result taking you to a new level.
What’s your bigger big today?
You can apply this to anything from vacations to starting a business.
If you’re looking for a job right now, maybe you should be thinking about a career instead of a job.
And if you have a career, maybe you should think bigger.
And that is, “What’s my real calling?
What was I put on this planet to do?
What is the one thing that would make me not care whether it’s Monday or Friday, because I enjoy what I’m doing every day?”
So think big, and then realize you just thought small. Before doing your big thing, look at what is the bigger thing, and do that instead.
When you do, you’ll find that your future will be far more amazing than your past, and even more amazing than you thought it would be.
