S:0505 Principle: Thinking bigger

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Nearly everybody has the capacity to think themselves small, in fact, nearly everybody does exactly that most of the time. Why? Mainly because it s convenient, simple, and safe. Of course they don t think they re thinking small; that s because they re not thinking about it at all.

Where are you “settling” for what you now have?

What do you think is “impossible” for you?

How do you know what the “limits” are?

Are you a “victim of circumstances?”

When did you last “push the envelope?”

Who reinforces your current view of “reality?”

In spite of all the evidence you have gathered so far — and all you can gather now when asked — you are the product of your own thinking. If you want to be bigger, think bigger. If you don t think about it, you will remain smaller than you could be.


Coaching point: Are you willing to try some impossible thinking — that will change your life?
