Success is a state of mind. Our accomplishments, tangible achievements, titles obtained, or talents developed are the result of our thoughts of the mind, our bridge of command. And if thoughts lead to actions, actions create habits, and habits are what determine our character and therefore possible destiny.
But is this the logic to accomplish great things? Should we first develop the ability to think differently? Not only. We also need to think big, communicate a lot, believe more, and finally, an important act is to act now and act consistently, to become a successful person!
It is important to remember, however, that thinking big is not the same as dreaming big. Everyone has big dreams – dreams are more than just hopes and wishes.
The ability to think big, however, requires a different mindset, mental discipline, and re-programming, and it actually means thinking differently than most people who survive in their life, rather than live it!
Different thinking involves actions, changes in vision, overcoming fear and doubts, believing in ourselves and in our dreams, developing the ability not to worry about what others say or think, without feeling Envy, and setting goals in a plan that it will result in important actions that reflect our way of thinking differently.
Perhaps one of the greatest examples of thinking differently, reprogramming our minds, developing thinking big, is demonstrated by the ability to get out of the typical employee mindset. This unhappy state of mind is not only detrimental to one’s potential but is so widely accepted that it has become a cultural state. It is evident in the actions and attitudes, such as: limiting oneself in one’s activities to keep the job, doing work that falls exclusively within one’s responsibilities or tasks, paying attention to schedules and needs alone, rather than thinking about company results or even to clients, thinking that working 40 years or more for a meager retirement is somehow a great desirable result, believing that the curriculum is enough to express their skills and potential.
This mindset is the main reason why so many people often fail to achieve their goals, dreams, and be successful in life. Those who continue with this mindset develop an addiction to a boss or company for their career advancement, daily survival, and personal and social approval, and thus fail to develop the qualities necessary to succeed in anything else, such as: think differently, develop self-confidence, desire success in believing in themselves and their dreams, take risks and overcome fears, learn from mistakes and turn them into experiences, be willing to diverge and do what it is necessary to achieve success.
Thinking differently by abandoning the typical employee mentality allows you to set high goals and work hard to achieve them, abandoning the tendency to perennial complaint!
Thinking differently, thinking big, is useful and necessary in any circumstance, situation, challenge, goal, or dream.
Of course, these principles are adaptable to any environment or goal as long as we have to apply them! Thinking of big business is useless if they don’t follow the facts. To be successful, not only a change in mentality is needed, but also a change in habits.
To think differently, you need to set high goals and specific plans to reach and realize your dreams. To develop the ability to think big one must first of all not be a victim of the dominant culture of satisfaction, and the ease of sufficiency. Always happy, never happy!
One must train the mind for happiness, never worry about what others think or say, eliminate fear and doubts, replacing them with courage and confidence. To continue, despite the failures that can inevitably be encountered and, therefore, concretely commit to achieving one’s goals and dreams. Because, to accomplish great things, one must always think differently, communicate, and act big!
The above is not meant to be a criticism for anyone. Each of us makes our own choices in relation to his idea of success. But he doesn’t have to feel “unlucky” or complain.
Success, as it is understood in the most common sense of the term, necessarily requires following certain principles.
