THINKING BIG CAN MAKE BIG THINGS HAPPEN
Thinking big holds
a lot of power which can be harnessed if we understand how it works. Our
thoughts and beliefs form the blueprint which creates our reality.
If we accept this
premise, then it stands to reason that if we want to live big, full, happy and
satisfying lives, we must first be able to imagine these lives.
It also makes
sense that if our thoughts create our reality, then thinking small or thinking
negatively is going to produce results in our lives that we will be less than
THINKING BIG AND BUILDING DREAMS
According to Walt
Disney, "If you can dream it, you can do it," and to a large degree,
the reverse also applies. If you can't dream it, you can't do it.
It is very
unlikely that you will suddenly find yourself living a reality that is far
beyond the realm of what you would ever have thought possible.
In fact, if this
were to happen, you would likely find yourself feeling so uncomfortable, that
you would (probably unconsciously) sabotage the new reality to allow your life
to return to a more comfortable state. Think of lottery winners who, a couple
of years later, have managed to wind up right back where they were financially
before the big windfall turned their reality upside down.
MINDSET IS KEY
This could be seen as a vote of confidence for gradual
rather than overnight success, however, the success itself is not the issue, but
rather, the mindset. If we were able to create and sustain a mindset where our
mental reality and level of comfort were miles away from our current physical
reality, then we would be able to step into sudden and dramatic change with
However, the "catch" here is that when we are gradually and
consistently training ourselves into the magic of thinking big, our physical
reality has a way of keeping up.
When we think and believe for a while that our lives can
go from A to B, the reality will comply. It does not wait until we have trained
ourselves into believing we can move from A to Z before it shifts. And this is
a good thing.
The physical evidence of our mental efforts is
encouraging and gives us greater motivation to keep moving forward, and belief
that we are on the right track.
WORKING WITH LAW OF ATTRACTION
The first step to creating any kind of results in our
lives is to train ourselves to imagine these results as a reality. By using the
power of our minds, we can create the mental blueprint of any type of
circumstances that we wish to experience in our lives, and by focusing with
determination on this picture and allowing it to become "real" in our
minds and our emotions, we enlist the help of one of the most powerful laws of
the universe - the Law of Attraction.
The emotional reaction you have to your mental pictures is extremely important.
If imagining yourself living in a beachfront mansion evokes feelings of
excitement, then you are tapping into the magic of thinking big.
However, if this vision makes you feel doubtful,
deprived, and a million miles away from what you imagine living there would
feel like, using your imagination in this way is not yet serving you.
THINKING BIGGER GRADUALLY
If you are finding it difficult, or impossible to picture
yourself living the life of your dreams, then start by just thinking slightly
bigger than what you have been currently thinking and living.
Rather than trying to see yourself in a beachfront
mansion, when you are currently living in your parents' basement, try picturing
yourself finding a cute studio apartment.
Likewise, if you have just experienced a dozen awful
dates, don't try and visualize your dream wedding. See yourself having a less
awful date; perhaps not feeling any sparks flying, but just having a good
conversation and a few laughs. Maybe making a new friend.
BELIEFS THAT HINDER THINKING BIG
Another thing to take into consideration as you begin
training yourself into the magic of thinking big, is that you may have beliefs
that are contrary to the new images you want to create for yourself.
Perhaps you don't believe that you can have success or
wealth, or that you deserve to be happy. When you become aware of beliefs that
are holding you back, it is important to take the time to release and replace
Gradual re-training beliefs through affirmations can be
very effective. Remember to be patient, and if you feel like you could use some
support, encouragement and guidance, contact me about some personal coaching.
a final word
open mind to the possibility of harnessing the magic of thinking big, a
willingness to try, and to keep trying - step by step - to move in the
direction you want to go, and a desire to believe that life is supposed to be
fun are all you need to begin creating a truly magical reality for yourself.
