Thinking big

Thinking big is not about being arrogant or creating outlandish dreams and goals for yourself. Thinking big is about seeing and understanding that you have a very important role to play in this life and in this world.

When you seek to see the big picture you’re much better able to transcend all the annoyances and frustrations that come along on a daily basis. Think big, and you’re able to rise above many of the difficulties and obstacles which hold others back.

Thinking big means having respect and gratitude for all the positive possibilities that life offers. And thinking big means being committed to doing something about the best of those possibilities.

Thinking big is knowing that you have something unique and valuable to offer the world. Thinking big means having the confidence to make it happen, no matter what problems may stand in your way.

Thinking big means letting go of what has already happened and putting your focus on the best of what can be.

Why get dragged down by all the small stuff that doesn’t really matter? Lift your eyes high, look toward the future, think big and make a real, positive, valuable difference everywhere you go.
