Every time you read this book, there will be more and more you learn from the same chapters, each chapter will guide you deeper into motivational and enthusiasm.
According to David, the key is simple, if you want to become BIG, just think BIG, there is no other way out you can train your mind to become successful in life. Thinking leads to analyzing, analyzing leads to implementing and implementing finally leads to results.
To achieve BIG in life, you can not settle for something small… Reread this mantra!!
Your life today is nothing but the reflection of your thoughts from your past, your plans, your dreams which you always had in your mind, then why not think BIG if I have to think in any ways.
My personal belief Think BIG as much as you can, doubtlessly you will reach to the top. The equation is simple; our thoughts will channelize our action which in take will take us to success.
The book helps one to understand how our mind works and how we can harness it to achieve success instead of it allowing it to ponder on negative thoughts.
Summarizing few points from the book –
Believe you can succeed and you will
The ever known key to your success is belief; the first chapter revolves around this concept explaining the readers that our own belief will help to grow up in life. The thought itself will work like a spark in your mind which will lead to actions and then results. It is significant to believe that you can be successful, many people fail to believe in themselves and hence they do not go far in there careers or life. The moment you feel and believe that you can do it… you have the thing in you … your mind initiates the process and itself will lead you to find various means to achieve it.
Cure yourself for the fear of failure or excuses –
I am too old to do that, I do not have strength to complete this, I am not too intelligent or smart to do that…etc get rid of these excuses, they are not only lame in nature but also are hurdles in you way of success. There is no age to think BIG, no artificial intelligence required to adapt your mind to start thinking. These are nothing but self created excuses which make us feel good at the end of the day of not taking up any challenges, we often are in our comfort zones reluctant to wake up.
How to think and dream creatively –
This one is a classical case where most of us would relate to, when faced a problem how often do we come up with solutions? To give an example, in our work place we often come across various issues, we often check with our older colleagues as to what was the solution they applied to cure it. Why?
Can we not think aloud? Can we not come up with varied solution our self, let us train our mind in the direction where it will give you the best optimal solution to your problems. Start believing that the problem is mere a problem and can be solved, don’t allow the traditional concept of solution, instead force your mind to think innovative.
Learn How to Think Positively –
Think positive is the slogan for a decade now, we all know it, we all hear it, we all preach it, but we do not follow it!! Positive thinking allows mind to go out of the box of a given situation and come up with various ideas, solutions. An open mind will always welcome every thing around it and absorb those things which are required by the mind. A close mind instead will hamper the growth and lead to a stressful, sulking life leading to no where. While you mind is positive your brains will send positive signals around linking it to various other positive signals in the universe, which will finally come up with a great solution.
Think like a Leader –
Think like a Leader!! Just think for a moment… the final chapter of the book deals with this thought. It furnishes various characteristics which helps you to become a great leader.
• Trading minds with the people you deal with
• Applying kindness to every situation
• Constantly think progressively
• Using solitude to tap your inner creative giant
Thinking like a leader will make one feel confident about his / her decisions. One shall believe that his thoughts are fruitful and will fetch great results in future for him. Constant thinking about progress with a positive attitude will ultimately make one believe strongly in himself and his potential. Achieving success will never be difficult with these traits.
Honestly this book is far beyond any self help book, it explains the concept of thinking BIG in much logical way than mere trusting your guts to feel successful.
