A new day, a new week, A new month,

Are you thinking Big?

There are so many factors that can hold a person back in this life.

Many are circumstantial – a lack of money, education, a stable home environment, connections. These conditions are outside of our control, especially when we’re growing up.

But one of the biggest setbacks a person can face is one that can be practiced: your own perception of what you’re capable of.

In my years of experience, I’ve found that the defining characteristic that sets the successful apart is simply the belief that they are capable of achieving what they want.

If I could give a piece of advice to anyone starting out, in any field really, it would be to allow your imagination to expand to the belief that you are capable of achieving great things. And beyond capability, that you’re worthy.

It’s a hard line to toe, because there’s nothing more unattractive than overconfidence, especially when it’s unearned. But that’s not what I’m talking about here.

It’s not hubris – it’s chutzpah.

It’s that scrappy mentality, that way of thinking that says, “well, if someone’s gonna do it, why shouldn’t it be me?”

I always remind myself of this quote by Leonardo da Vinci, “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.

They went out and happened to things!”

It’s that sense of purpose, of knowing that you can do more than what you’re already doing.

When I was getting started I used to scale back before I’d even begun. I’d make a plan, then look it over, afraid that I’d overdone it.

Now, I challenge myself to do the opposite. I make a plan and then I ask myself:

“Are you thinking big enough?”

Real difficulties can be overcome, it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.

Don’t let what you can’t do interfere with what you can do.

Think big, think fast and think ahead.

Ideas are no One’s monopoly.

Whatever you wish, whatever you dream, whatever you hope to achieve, will be yours only if you believe in yourself.

Go Out, Do it, dream big, make big things happen & stay blessed forever.
