Each one of us wants to succeed in what they’re doing – whether we’re talking about profit or non-profit objectives. We are encountered by lots of “gurus” and role models who are saying that everything is actually very easy to make and you don’t have to work very much to get to your goals. Or, at least, this is the image they are projecting towards our duckling minds.
There are thousands of advices and tips for getting closer to our objectives. The hard part is taking the action, actually doing something and not only listening for months to motivational lessons. You have to apply what the “masters” are transmitting to us. You need to stay Big and you can do it by thinking Big!
When People Want to Drive You Down, THINK BIG
We like it or not but there are so many situations in life where we are dealing with difficult people who have no other interests than to “bring” you down as they are not too busy leveraging their own abilities and lifes. You have to wisely treat this type of relationships in your life because this will grow your self-esteem and will set loose the coward in you.
You win only when you refuse to fight petty people! Figthing with little people reduces you to their size. Stay big.
Expect to be sniped at. It’s proof you’re growing.
Remind yourself that snipers are psychologically sick. Be and Feel Big. Feel sorry for them.
When You Feel “you haven’t got what it takes”, THINK BIG
You have a job, family, car, circle of friends. Each of these 3 essential pillars of your life have tiny components that make your life as it is. Whether you are repairing your car, trying to solve a family issue or arguing with a friend, you sometimes feel you don’t have what it takes to win the situation. Take a deep breath and tink about your own persona’s importance, think in big terms whatever you are doing.
Look important. It helps you think important. How you look on the outside has a lot to do with how you feel on the inside
Concentrate on your assets. Learn to supercharge yourself. Know your positive self.
Put other people in proper perspective. The other person is just another human being, so why be afraid of him?
When a Quarrel or Fight seems Inevitable, THINK BIG
Went to the grocery shop and the vendor was a total jerk? Your boss is being the most arrogant and selfish jerk of the Planet? You are on the edge of exploding, the last second before the bubble bursts…
Just ask yourself – “Is this thing really that important to to argue about?”
Remember that you never gain anything from an argument but you always lose something!
Stop. You were granted the biggest gift that there is – life. Don’t fill precious moments with tanks of bad energy. If you have to, step back and let it go.
When You Feel Defeated, THINK BIG
I have learned most of this back when I was a teenager. Engaging myself in sport activities was one of the best things I could have done in my early life. Not only that I have learned that victory is nothing without tasting at least once the defeat, but I managed to extract valuable knowledge from it.
The setback is a lesson. You have to learn from it. Research it and use it to propel you forward! Salvage somethin from every setback
Blend persistence with experimentation. Back off and start fresh with a new approach.
You only fall to climb back again. Discover and accept the reason that lead you to failure then start by removing it brick by brick.
When “Romance” Starts to Slip, THINK BIG
In my circle of acquaintances there is a girl that likes me a lot, and I feel it each time we hang out togheter with our friends. But I don’t like her at all. What I try to make is understand the way she thinks in order to know how to approach her and not hurting her feelings. Empathy is the key in these situations.
Focus on the biggest qualities in the person you want to love/appreciate/value you. Put little things where they belong – in second place
Do something special for your mate/partner – and do it often. Think Big Enough to find the secret to marital joys.
Try to shift your Point of View to his/her POV. Being objective towards yourself is a good key for understanding even the most complicated relationships.
When Your Progress on your Project is Slowing Down, THINK BIG
This blog is a project, your own is a project. The simplest outcome for a blog is for it to die, because it is so hard to “waste” your time writing, interacting and climbing the traffic scale. Quitting is the easiest way to end a project, but going forward is not that hard also!
Having continuity in things is a hard task to compete with. Learn to glue the steps by thinking of the final goal, which has to be big.
Refresh often! Let new ideas flow in if you feel uncomfortable with the old ones.
Don’t lose the focus and award each accomplished step by giving you gifts. For example, I awarded myself for writing this post with an awesome meal at a mexican restaurant.
