You must learn to dream big—really big! As the saying goes…”go big or go home.” Yes, you know great things are possible. But you have to take it a step further and start believing that great things are possible for you. You have to believe that you can and that you deserve to have everything in your life exactly the way you want it.
Why is believing and dreaming big the first step to having the life you want? Because your life will never rise higher than your thoughts will allow. Your mind must be stretched to believe in new possibilities. A quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes states, “A mind once stretched by a new idea can never return to its original size.”
Developing possibility thinking is about upgrading your mind and life. You can’t have a “don’t want much” mentality. That way of thinking keeps you playing small, living an average existence, being stuck in a rut, and losing hope. It’s time to cultivate your mind and think BIG!
Here are 3 tips to help you develop your mindset of possibilities:
Define and 10x It
Begin with defining what you really want—your ideal life in all areas of your personal and professional life. Picture your family being loving, successful and healthy. Imagine your business being very successful and you getting that big promotion on your job. Now take those dreams and it up 10 levels. Now you’re dreaming BIG.
Big Thinking Equal Big Difference
Now it’s time to develop your mind and THINK Big. You may have heard of positive thinking and you may have even tried it—but this is a little different. I want you to think big as if your entire life depends on it…because it does! When you think big, you achieve big and when you achieve big, you get to make a big difference in the world.
One of the biggest steps to making your big dreams will come true is to take action. Once you have a clear vision of your big dream, you must take the necessary actions to making your dreams a reality. Take small steps everyday towards your big dreams.
Without thinking for a long time, write out a list of possibilities. List some of the ways your big dreams can happen. Schedule a time within the next 7 days where you will take small action on at least one thing on your list of big dream possibilities.
You must consistently develop and cultivate possibility thinking. Daily, take time to dream beyond your means and imagine good things happening in your personal and professional life. Begin to increase your ability to do things by engaging in mind-expanding activities and experiences. As you see, hear, and do more, you will begin to develop your belief in what’s possible for you. You will begin to know that your Big dreams are possible!
